Saddle Up for Big Wins in Megaways Duel of the Dead Slot

The Wild West is a legendary era in American history, characterized by cowboys, gunslingers, saloons, and of course, epic shootouts. It’s a time that has captured the imaginations of people around the world for generations, thanks in no small part to classic Western movies like The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, and, of course, more recently Django Unchained.

Why do I bring up the Tarantino classic? Well, Kalamba appears to have drawn a rather significant amount of inspiration for its new Megaways Duel of the Dead slot from the movie. Oh, there are also zombies. Don’t ask questions, just go with it.

The dead have risen in the west?

The slot is built around the Megaways function which allows a variable number of symbols to appear on each of the reels. On reels one to five, a minimum of two and a maximum of seven symbols can appear. The number of possible ways to win increases with the more symbols that appear on the reels at any given time.

The Zombies Go Wild feature is triggered when the sheriff symbol lands on the reels. The symbol only appears on the first reel. Once the feature is triggered, the sheriff symbol will expand to fill the entire first reel. Once she does, all symbols on reels two to five will transform into zombie symbols that will be targeted by the sheriff. The multiplier of any zombie symbol that the sheriff hits will increase by 1x. Once she’s finished with her target practice, any zombie symbol with a multiplier will transform into a multiplier wild and any winnings will be paid out.

If during a round of Zombies Go Wild a Deadeye Bob symbol appears on the sixth reel, the Duel feature will be triggered. Each time the sheriff hits Deadeye Bob during the duel, up to three multipliers will be added to random zombie symbols. The Duel feature ends when Deadeye Bob hits the Sheriff.

The slot’s free spins feature is triggered with the appearance of three or more bonus symbols. An additional free spin is added to your total for each bonus symbol that appears during your round of free spins. During a round of free spins, multiplier values will also allow you to collect extra bullets for your Zombies Go Wild bonus feature rounds. Once the feature is triggered, the sheriff will first utilize the bullets you collected and then the random number of bullets assigned to that round of the Zombies Go Wild bonus feature. This gives you a shot at some impressive wins.

Is Megaways Duel of the Dead slot DOA or full of life?

Bizarre. That’s probably the word I would use to describe Megaways Duel of the Dead slot. That’s not to say it’s not an enjoyable game. The graphics are fun, the bonus features are plentiful and interesting, and the absurdity of the whole thing certainly gave me a few giggles. I don’t understand what connection Django Unchained has to the whole thing and why the characters from the movie and the Wild West are associated with zombies and at this point, I’m too afraid to ask.

The slot does have high volatility, meaning that you’ll be running from those zombies longer than you’d like between big wins. However, thanks to the massive 20,000x max multiplier, you’ll be able to chase some big wins even if you’re betting at the €0.20 per spin minimum. And if you choose to bet at the €10 per spin maximum, you have the chance to win as much as €200,000. The slot has a 96% RTP rating.

If you’re looking for a few other choice selections from Kalamba, I recommend giving the mysterious Agent 51 or the creepy Zombie Queen slots a try.
