The design of La Rouge is quite traditional with 5 reels and 3 rows of symbols. The colour scheme is red and black with white spotlights guiding your way around the reels.

Paint the Town Red or Black to Gamble!

One of the most entertaining parts of La Rouge is the gamble feature, which can be activated after any winning spin. This is a common feature of many slot games but La Rouge has given it an updated twist by adding the classic movie theme to the proceedings and calling it ‘Paint the Town Red or Black’.

A glamorous movie star appears on the screen and you have to select either the red or black star to seal your fate! Choose correctly to double your money – but if you choose incorrectly you will forfeit your winnings from that spin. You have up to 5 consecutive gambles and the drama is increased by the director’s spotlights shining onto the screen from either side.

Max win and return to player

The maximum win while playing La Rouge is 980,000 coins, making this a game with serious winning potential. The overall game return to player in this slot is a solid 95.02%. This is a medium to high volatility slot, so although you might not see many wins on each spin, when you do hit a payout it could be huge – which is completely in fitting with the glamorous Hollywood theme!
