For a provider that are not currently licensed within the UK market and therefore are under no obligation to publish these figures this is a significantly progressive move. The House Edge for The Wild West Gold is 3.49%.
The Wild West Gold is a 5 reel game that is 4 symbols high. The game uses traditional paylines with 40 in total, playing from left to right.
This is a Western themed slot. Cowboys and cowgirls make up symbols that also include sheriff badges and gun holsters. The reels sit on top of an old Western town, making this slot look like something right out of a John Wayne movie.
Wild – Wild symbol is the “Sheriff’s Badge”, which will substitute for all symbols other than Scatters. Wilds can only appear on reels 2, 3 and 4 and it will always come with a multiplier of x2, x3 or x4 the bet. If more than one Wild lands on a winning payline they will be added together and applied to the bet.
Scatters – The Scatter symbol is the “Prairie”. You need 3 or more of them to trigger the Free Spins feature. Scatter symbols only land on reels 1, 3 and 5.
Free Spins – If you trigger the Free Spins feature you will be given 8 spins in total. During those spins any time a Wild symbol lands it will stick in place for the duration of the feature. The Wilds will come with multipliers, which will remain the same throughout. Further spins can be won as follows:
2 Scatters = 4 additional spins
3 Scatters = 8 additional spins
4 Scatters = 12 additional spins
5 Scatters = 20 additional spins
If, come the end of the Free Spins, you have not managed to win at least x10 the bet, you will have an amount added to take your winnings up to x10 the bet. The flip side to this is that the most you are allowed to win is x10,000 the bet.
