Showdown Saloon Slot Review

Released: December 2018

The Showdown Saloon slots game can be found at Microgaming casinos. Microgaming as a standard now publish the slots house edge information of all their games at any online casino that holds a UKGC license (this is a requirement for all UKGC licensed casinos. As such we can say that the House Edge of Showdown Saloon is 3.842%. When playing at any venue that does not hold a UKGC license and does not specifically publish the Return to Player information for their game, this information should be used as a guideline only as we cannot confirm whether or not this game is configurable.

Showdown Saloon is a 5 reel game that is 3 symbols high. There are 15 paylines in total, playing from left to right.

Special Symbols

Wild – The wild symbol is the “Royal Flush”, replacing all symbols other than Free Spin symbols. The Wild symbol is also the most valuable symbol in the game, with 5 “Royal Flush” symbols as part of a winning payline earning you 10,000 coins.

Free Spins– The “Gun Slinger” symbol is the Free Spins symbol. 3 or more stacks of “Gun Slinger” symbols will trigger the Free Spins feature. The more stacks that you can reveal, the more free spins you will be awarded.

Bonus Features

Mystery Stacks – Each reel contains a stack of mystery symbols. If you reveal a stack, then the reel will be replaced by one large symbol. On each regular spin the same symbol will replace the two left most stacks, which will create one large symbol that fills 3 reels. The remaining 2 mystery stacks may be replaced by different symbols. Free Spin symbols can replace stacks.

Re-Spin – Revealing matching full symbol stacks can result in re-spins. For this to happen you must land matching full symbol stacks on reels 2 to 4. When this happens, the triggering stacks remained locked in place for the re-spin. Landing further adjacent stacks will result in more re-spins. Any sacks that you land during the re-spins will change to match the existing stacks. You will not gain a re-spin if you fill 5 reels with full stacked symbols.

Free Spins – You trigger this feature by landing 3 full stacks of “Gun Slinger” symbols. The more stacks you can land, the more Free Spins you will be awarded and the multiplier will also improve. 3 stacked “Gunslinger” symbols will trigger 5 free spins at x1 the bet. 4 stacked “Gunslinger” symbols will trigger 10 free spins at x2 the bet. 5 stacked “Gunslinger” symbols will trigger 15 free spins at x3 the bet. Free Spin symbol trigger is determined once the re-spin feature is completed.


Showdown Saloon is a walk into the Wild West. The game relies on combinations of stacked symbols to trigger all the special features it has to offer. There are wilds, re-spins and free spins but nothing much else to speak of. The game looks good but won’t set the reels alight for you. There are plenty of Western themed games out there and, to be honest, this one doesn’t hold up to some of the better offerings. Like Romanov Riches (a game this closely resembles), Showdown Saloon is solid game with a few interesting features but not enough to have you coming back for more. The house edge is reasonable, sitting at roughly what we would consider to be an average RTP, meaning there is some value on offer.
