The French Reelvolution Slot by 888 Gaming

The French Reelvolution Slot by 888 Gaming  Introduction

In order to create The French ‘Reelvolution’ video slot, software provider 888 turned to the history books. With Napoleon Bonaparte performing plenty of on-screen antics throughout The French Revolution, you’re sure to be entertained. The reels are presented in a cartoony, bobble-head-style with Napoleon Bonaparte shown eating cheese, drinking wine, and firing cannons against the iconic Tuileries Palace. In terms of slot games, this is quite a fresh concept.

This slot has five reels and 20 paylines, so if you’re looking for something simple, it’s a good choice. The most valuable symbol in this game is Napoleon Bonaparte himself. You can win 500 coins if you hit five of him at maximum bet. There is also a max bet of 200.00 available, so daring bettors can aim for high stakes on this video slot.

A Low volatility means that this video slot game does pay out frequently, but those wins won’t be anything too spectacular.

Features

A Guillotine Reel and a Cannon Bombardment feature in The French Revolution provide you with a potential chance of winning big. As part of the base game, you can access the Guillotine Reels feature.

It is possible that a guillotine will fall from the top of the reel when one reel has high-paying symbols stacked on it. Three of those symbols will be replaced with other symbols, resulting in a bigger payout.

In the free spins round, which is triggered when three scatter symbols appear on reels 1, 3, and 5, the Cannon Bombardment can occur randomly. During your free spin rounds, Napoleon prepares his cannon and will fire a few shots if he feels like it. The Napoleon symbol, which pays out the highest, can also be substituted, along with up to 15 lower-paying symbols.

Las Vegas – How It Made Its Name

Las Vegas - How It Made Its Name  There can’t be a gambler on the planet who is unaware of the gambling mecca (or behemoth depending on your perspective) that is Las Vegas. And that’s for good reason, as over a period of decades a Nevada desert expanse has transformed into a centre of offline gambling, live shows and sporting (primarily boxing) excellence. The transformation was far from an overnight occurrence, and multiple ingredients of both planning and entertainment led to Vegas becoming what it is today.

Las Vegas as a city came into being in 1905 as result of 110 acres of land being auctions off by a railway company. Essentials liked piped water were put in place as well as the hoover dam in 1930. Illegal gambling would eventually take place in Vegas, but it was legalised on a local level in 1931 and soon Freemont Street gradually became what it is today starting with the Las Vegas Club and the Hotel Apache. The more high end casino and hotel aspects of Vegas were in part due to mob money, though over time the legal Sheriff did manage to reign that in a little.

Before long the likes of the now iconic (though not all now still standing) Sahara, the Sands, the Showboat, The Riviera, The Fremont were part of the Vegas landscape. Legal scrutiny led to Vegas cleaning up its act a little and becoming more above board in its gambling practices.

The rat pack would then go on to play an important role in elevating Las Vegas to the gambling and entertainment hub it would eventually become. The rat pack was a loose term used for a group of A-list celebrities (both actors and musicians) who joined forces in several Vegas based entertainment endevours (concerts, movies etc). The head of the pack if you will was Frank Sinatra, and other the years other members included the likes of  Dean Martin , Marilym Monroe and Sammy Davis Jr. Later Elvis would hold a residency, in a template that is copied to this day by musical artists such as Elton John and Lady Gaga. The fact that the leading names of the day were on the Vegas scene, massively increases tourism and hence gambling.

Another component of how Vegas reached its level of worldwide recognition is the fact that its hosted for of the most memorable  boxing bouts in the sports history. Using some of Vegas’  iconic hotels + casinos (such as Caesars Palace and the MGM) to host boxing matches propelled both sport and Vegas to new heights. Of course since that time these and other mega resorts like the Bellagio make Vegas what it is today.
