La Rouge slot from Microgaming

La Rouge slot from Microgaming
It’s obvious that the developers at Old Skool Studios were at least a little bit influenced by the movie Sin City and combined the colour scheme and style with other film noir masterpieces when they cooked up this slot. They put a Marilyn Monroe and Humphrey Bogart lookalike in the mix and added a cool jazzy soundtrack to enhance the dark laid-back atmosphere. The result is a stylish standalone La Rouge slot machine, published on Microgaming’s platform, made to be enjoyed to the fullest with a glass of Rémy Martin on the rocks in one hand and an old cigar in the other.

Although the exclusive black and white design (with a carefully placed dash of red) is atypical, all the regular online slot elements are featured: Wilds, Scatters, a Bonus Round, and Free Spins will all come around sooner or later in this slot noir. To top it off there is a Gamble feature, which many hardcore gamblers seem to love, and a chance at winning the maximum win of 10 000 coins.

Immerse yourself in this cinematic slot and see if it will make you feel like a movie star. Try it for free in the DEMO version on this page. No registration required.

Personal testers’ opinion

We savoured intensively the elegant La Rouge slot machine, despite the meagre RTP of only 95.02% offered. The bonus rounds come reasonably frequent, and our team obtained a maximum of 247 the total bet win during slot examination. Every tester from the team expressed praise for the refined graphics, visuals, and sound from which exudes luxury and exclusiveness. Words seem not enough to express how much we admire the precision and the skills of the developers' team.

But then again, this slot is just a reskin of their early successful game Epic City (2014). And reskins is what we don't want to play. No matter the sophisticated artwork. We just see Epic City's power fuses and switches replaced by the elevator's buttons in the La Rouge lift. And the fun is fading away.
Neutral recommendation for the bonus hunters, as well for players with real funds.

Probabilities claimed by the developer:
The total prize pool is divided equally between the base game and the bonus features. So, from the full return of 95.02% around 50% is set aside for payments in regular spins, and the remaining 45% are divided as 25 for the Free Spins and 20 for the Starlite Bonus game. These stats show that the biggest probability of getting large prizes is in the main game.

Features

  • Marilyn lookalike Wild - replaces all other symbols, with the exception of Bogart wannabe Scatter and Clapperboard Bonus symbol.
  • Starlite Bonus round - 3 Clapperboard symbols dropping on reels 1, 3, and 5 at once, will trigger a bonus pick-game, consisting of 5 levels. On each level, you get to pick one item, which can be a Prize, Win-all, Advance, or Collect. Win-all will award you with all the prizes of the level and automatically you will level up. The advance will leave you without a prize but takes you straight to the next level. Collect will award a prize and end the Starlite Bonus round.
  • Free Spins - Land 3, 4 or 5 Humphrey Bogart lookalike Scatters and 8, 12 and 20 Free Spins will be launched where Stacked Wilds are added to the reels. A random multiplier will be applied to the Free Spins, and even on the ones you might re-trigger, but unfortunately, the Starlite Bonus round cannot be activated during this mode.
  • Gamble feature - Gamble to double your winnings after each winning spin. If you guess the colour of the closed card right, your win will be doubled. If you get it wrong of course, the winning will be taken away from you, just as swiftly as it was given.
