In this online slots game from casino software developers NextGen Gaming, you’re invited to experience a night in one of the world’s most popular destinations: beautiful Bangkok, cultural and economic heart of Thailand, renowned worldwide for its rich culture, stunning architecture, and, um, colourful nightlife. NextGen are the company responsible for the popular Medusa slots game, as well as the Judge Dredd franchise’s online slots debut, so expectations are high.
The title ‘Bangkok Nights’ is sure to evoke some powerful mental imagery for those who’ve heard tales of the city’s famous niche entertainments, but the artwork on display here is mercifully clean – or woefully so, depending on your perspective.
The theme of Bangkok Nights is all about the glitz and glamour of the city. Glittering golden dragons and a twilight skyline frame the playing board; the game’s reels are populated with sequinned top hats, jewelled carnival masks, and the illuminated facades and neon signs of exclusive nightclubs; the glamourous, pink-feathered dancing girls are clothed, and there’s not a ping pong ball in sight.
Bangkok Nights offers players up to 20 paylines to bet on across its five reels. The nightclub, with its neon Bangkok Nights sign, is the game’s scatter symbol, and hitting three or more of these will trigger the free spins feature. Players are given twelve free spins and triple winnings with this feature, and it can be re-triggered while active to really rack up those spins.
In Bangkok Nights, the dancing girls are Wild… By which we mean that they’ll substitute for any other symbol except scatters to complete a winning combination. They may enjoy particularly wild personal lives as well, but it doesn’t seem polite to ask. Players who land a dancing girl on the first and last reels will trigger the game’s second special bonus feature, a simple ‘pick and win’ game where players choose one of the two girls to receive a bonus win.
Finally, this slots game offers players the chance to gamble most wins by guessing either the next suit or next colour from a deck of cards. This feature allows players to continuously double or quadruple up their winnings, and can lead to some big payouts for players with the nerve and the luck to keep going!
This is a slots game that aims to make you feel like a VIP at the city’s swankiest hotspot, and it succeeds. The lush reel artwork make the game a joy to behold and the two distinct bonus rounds help to keep the gameplay fresh and interesting. Bangkok Nights is sure to give players an evening to remember.
