Ah, the Wild West. It has appeared in many forms in lots of slot games, and it does so again here. But instead of finding ourselves in the main street, we find ourselves inside the local tavern. That’s a nice place to be, don’t you think? Settle in and let’s see how the game begins.
Wild West is based around five reels, but you get 10 paylines instead of the more usual 20 or 25.
With a cent available as the smallest coin, a 10-cent spin bet is possible. You can head way higher than that if you have a larger budget though. The top bet is $100 per spin.
You’d expect to see a cowboy here and he does appear. He is wild, but he doesn’t appear everywhere. Instead, he may only pop up on reels three, four, and five. There is also a stack of chips featuring the Wild West wording, and this stack is the scatter icon. However, this doesn’t show up in the base game. You’ll discover why in a moment.
If you get the cowboy in a winning line, you will trigger the free spins feature. This awards you five free spins. This is where the stacked chips appear. Whenever they do – and you only need one scatter to show up – you secure a cash prize. This will be equivalent to the amount won when the feature was triggered by the wild cowboy.
You can trigger these five free spins again in the same way. The only difference will be the new cash value for each scattered stack of chips, which will equate to the second triggering amount.
The game also features a Super Bet element. You may have seen this in other NextGen games. You don’t need to activate this, but if you do you will get a larger multiplier value for your prizes. However, be aware this involves an additional bet for each spin, so consider your budget before you do anything else. You can always play the game without using this feature, just as we did.
Try the Wild West slot today and see if that cowboy will prove to be lucky for you.
