Wild West Gold Slot (Pragmatic Play)
For the Wild West genre, getting rich comes naturally, and we can see the proof with the many bank robbers and gold diggers available. Pragmatic Play has decided to turn this genre into a slot game, and after trying out this new release, below is my review of Wild West Gold slot:
Wild West Gold is a slot machine that is characterised by cowboys and cowgirls. They are donning bags of gold coins somewhere in the dusty town of a North American city in the 19th century.
Pragmatic Play has used quite a large game area of 5x4 reels, and a total of 40 active lines. The slot game is high in volatility, but I like the payout potential that it has since it can award a top payout of as much as 6,750x the stake.
Additionally, Pragmatic Play has announced a very decent RTP of 96.51% for this game. For the features, expect to see the wilds, free spins, multipliers, as well as some scatters.
Betting and Prizes
Although the game has a total of 40 active lines, only 20 of them can be wagered on. The lowest that you can use to place a wager is $0.20, while the highest is $100 per spin.
Wild West Gold Slot Features
Just like most other modern slot games, Wild West Gold has a Wild symbol that appears in the form of a Badge. This can also be used to substitute for all other regular symbols apart from the scatter.
The wild symbol only appears in the middle three columns of the game. The moment the wilds land there, they contribute with different multipliers of 5x, 3x or 2x.
In case you are lucky to land on several wilds in a combo, the multipliers add up which then gives you a boost of up to 15x in the regular combinations. This means that up to $30,000 can be won per line.
There is also another feature that awards you with up to 8 free spins. This is the scatter symbol (Sunsets), and you will require at least 3 for this to happen.
As you go through the slot’s free spins, you may notice some small badge overlay icons on the symbols. If you manage to land these 2 to 5 times, you will be able to trigger an additional 4 to 20 in free spins.
However, Pragmatic Play has capped the stake limit on any winnings that come as a result of these free spins at 10,000 x.
Theme & Design
The slot game uses the standard Wild West-themed design. The same has incorporated the street of a frontier town that appears on both sides of its reels.
There is a Saloon on the right side, a house on the left, and the reels are well arranged in the middle part, where they are decorated with cow skulls, wood, lanterns, and some revolvers.
For the symbols, you get some Royals that appear in the Wild West style and these are made out of wood. Others are bags of coins, handguns, and some high-value symbols that are accompanied by four characters (two women and two men).
I have no complaint to make about this slot game by Pragmatic Play. Wild West Gold looks quite promising, and although this slot game with very high volatility, its excellent top rewards combined with great RTP makes it an ideal slot game for high rollers.
