Western Reels Slot Review

Evoplay offers a fresh take on the golden age of casino slots by incorporating Wilds, Free Spins, and a Fortune Wheel to the classic fruit-themed slot. Although the slot's title is Western Reels, there isn't anything really Western about it other than the honky-tonk music playing in the background. It's like throwing a Mexican-themed party but only serving pizza and beer.

Gameplay

Western Reels is a 3x3 reel, 5 payline video slot powered by Evoplaysoftware. Symbols include Cherries, Bars, Double Bars, Triple Bars, 7s, and Bells. Special Symbols include the Diamond Wild and the Dollar Sign Scatter that triggers the Free Spins Feature. There is also a Wheel of Fortune Feature. More detail will be given in the Features section.

The game controls at the bottom of the screen are from left to right: the Information Icon that expands to the Paytable, Rules and Games Settings buttons followed by the Balance window, adjustable Bet window, Spin button that is also the Autoplay button when holding it in, Fast Play Mode button, Sound button, Settings button, and Full-Screen Mode button.

Features

The features in Western Reels include the Diamond Wild and the Dollar Sign Scatter that triggers the Free Spins Feature. There is also a Wheel of Fortune Feature.

During every spin, the Wheel of Fortune spins as well on the left of the reels. Once the reels stop spinning, the Wheel of Fortune stops as well, and if the spin results in a winning combination, you are awarded the bonus in the segment that the Wheel of Fortune stopped on. There are 12 segments in the Wheel of Fortune. In the main game, it includes Multipliers from 1x-6x and +1 Spin segments. If you land on the +1 Spin segment, you are awarded a Respin.

The Diamond Wild substitutes for all symbols, except the Dollar Sign Scatter, to form potential winning combinations.

Land 3 Dollar Sign Scatters on a winning payline to trigger the Free Spins Feature, awarding 10 Free Spins. The Wheel of Fortune is also in play, but only contains segments with Multipliers from 2x to 8x.

Unique Features

Unfortunately, there are no unique features to this slot.

Performance

Westen Reels puts a spin on the classic slot machine, but the title is somewhat deceiving as there is no Western theme incorporated on the reels. The addition of a Free Spins Feature and Wheel of Fortune is the upgrade that old-school fruit slots needed. The graphics, design, and animation are well done. The RTP is at 96%, with high volatility.

Max Win

The max coin win is 3246x your stake.

Conclusion

If you enjoy playing classic 3x3 fruit-themed slots, then Western Reels will give you what you are looking for and more, with the chance of landing some great wins thanks to the incorporation of the additional features. Perhaps you should wear a cowboy hat when playing this slot to be more in-line with the supposed theme.
