Wild West Gold

Wild West Gold Slot Review

Saddle up your horse and trek to the Wild West to get your hands on the town's gold. Yes, this theme has been done more times than bullets have ejected from a pistol, but it seems like it never gets old. So I won't waffle on about what you can expect in terms of the theme because it is pretty much the standard with Sheriffs, outlaws, etc. However, I will mention that the last time I took on a Sheriff, I walked away with a tumbleweed as my loot.

Gameplay

Wild West Gold is a 5x3 reel, 40 payline video slot powered by Pragmatic Play software. The symbols include Royal Card Suits (10-A), Pistols and Holsters, Bags of Gold Coins, Female Outlaw Character Symbols, Cowgirl Character Symbols, Cowboy Character Symbols, and Sheriff Character Symbols. Special Symbols include the multiplier Sheriff's Badge Wild, and the Sunset Scatter that triggers the Free Spins Feature. There is also a Win Guarantee Feature. More detail will be given in the Features section.

Controls are located at the bottom of the reels. Starting from the left, you will find a System Settings icon (3 horizontal lines), below that a Mute button, and next to that, an Information icon with the paytable. On the bottom right is your Spin button with Autoplay below it and Bet increase and decrease buttons.

Features

Features in Wild West Gold include the multiplier Sheriff's Badge Wild, the Sunset Scatter that triggers the Free Spins Feature, and the Win Guarantee Feature.

The multiplier Sheriff's Badge Wild substitutes for all symbols, except the Sunset Scatter, to form potential winning combinations. It only appears on reels 2-4 and has a multiplier of 2x-5x attached to it. If more than 1 Wild appears on a winning payline, the multiplier values will be added together.

Land 3 Sunset Scatters on reels 1, 3, and 5 to trigger the Free Spins Feature, awarding 8 free spins. During the feature, all multiplier Sheriff's Badge Wilds that land will become sticky and remain for the duration of the feature. There is also a Scatter Overly Symbol in the form of a Gold Sheriff Star that can land on top of any symbol on the reels. Land at least 2 to be awarded the following:

2x Gold Sheriff Scatters: 4 additional free spins

3x Gold Sheriff Scatters: 8 additional free spins

4x Gold Sheriff Scatters: 12 additional free spins

5x Gold Sheriff Scatters: 20 additional free spins

Unique Features

The Win Guarantee Feature occurs during the Free Spins Feature. If the total win at the end of the Free Spins Feature is below 10x your stake, a guaranteed prize of 10x your stake will be awarded.

Performance

Wild West Gold may not be the best Wild West themed slot we have ever seen, but it does provide 1 or 2 extra features that you don't often see, such as the Win Guarantee Feature. The gameplay is very straightforward that can lead to a crazy amount of loot to walk away with. The design, animation, and graphics are great. The volatility is high and RTP is at 96.51%.

Max Win

The max coin win is 10000x your stake.

Conclusion

Wild West Gold proves that if you are willing to risk it all, not even the Sheriff will be able to get his hands on you. It does pay off to be an outlaw when it comes to playing slots as the loot is there for the taking. Throw in a couple of awesome features, and you will be riding off into the sunset in no time. Speaking of which, I am going to grab a sundowner at the saloon, care to join?
