New York-New York is a playful new slot title that follows a family of tourists as they eat their way through Manhattan. These tourists just happen to be the main characters from another myVEGAS game, Bet the Farm. The family hails a cab, helps a socialite rescue her lost poodle, and gets caught up in a daring armored car heist. By New York standards, it’s good clean fun for everyone.
