Hacksaw Gaming is known for using all manner of creativity to create some interesting slot games.
Their latest entrance in the market is Wanted Dead or a Wild, a slot machine that borrows from the Wild West theme.
I respect Hacksaw Gaming's unique blend of features, sounds, and looks. This is my experience playing the slot for real money:
Wanted Dead or a Wild offers a 5x5 grid, with just 15 pay lines. In the blend of features are Free spins bonus, Respins, Win Multiplier, Buy Feature, Collect Symbols, Hold and Win, Expanding Wilds, Multiplier Wilds, Sticky Wilds, and Wild Reels.
Wanted Dead or a Wild can be played on any device, and if you love mobile gaming like me, then you can play this slot while on the go, using your smartphone.
To place a wager, I needed not less than $0.20 per spin, and the highest that you can use is $100 per spin. The slot has good potential, and on a good day, you can walk away with up to 12500xs the stake from one spin.
While volatility is rather high (medium to high), the slot offers three bonus spins with each having an individual volatility level ranging between medium to very high. However, there is also a default RTP of 96.38%.
Wanted Dead or a Wild has many features among them a full reel with wild multiplier symbols, in addition to three bonus spins. You will need the help of some features to trigger them though.
There are VS symbols that will appear in the base area. Whenever these landed, they expanded to take over the entire reel, and turn it into a wild. The symbols also showcase a win multiplier (between x2 to x100). If at least 1 VS symbol lands in view, the multipliers will be added before they are applied to the winning combination.
3+ Train Robbery icons may land within the base game, and when they do, the Great Train Robbery feature is triggered. The reward is a cool 10 free spins, and the landing wilds will remain in sticky form until the end of the feature.
Landing 3+ Duel icons triggers the Duel at Dawn bonus feature, which will reward you with up to 10 free spins.
With the sun smoulders, twisted trees and the barbed-wire fence, this slot does not offer your typical Wild West scene. Actually, it is the first slot where I’m seeing a developer avoid the usual dusty one-horse town.
Wanted Dead or a Wild offers a heavier atmosphere than what we see on a majority of Western slots.
However, it seems to share a few characteristics with their popular 2020 release, Chaos Crew.
The slot offers 10 regular pay icons that include 10-A card ranks, money bags, skulls, outlaw getups, bullet chambers, and liquor bottles.
Wanted Dead or a Wild is one of the best slots that Hacksaw Gaming has released in the recent past.
The slot is rich in features, offers a decent RTP, and very good top prizes, and it’s a great choice for all types of players.
