User Review( votes)
Welcome to the Wild West Zone slot
Wild West Zone from the gaming development team at Leander invites you to join the sheriff and try to land a jackpot or two. Predominately a cowboy adventure this slot is complete with some unusual gameplay. The slot uses a Dynamic Ways game engine which is unique as the number of ways you can win changes with every spin starting from 243 to a maximum of 3,125. There are also re-spins, sticky wilds and free spins which play over expanded reels that offer an enormous 117,649 ways to win and if this is not enough there are boosting expanding multipliers in the free spins too.
Theme and Design
When it comes to theme the Wild West Zone is a comic book creation of a dusty frontier town. The visuals and audio are excellent, and the town looks identical to what you would expect to see with the backdrop being a perfect recreation of a wild west movie. The visuals could come courtesy of any quality comic book and the banjo soundtrack is an excellent accompaniment to create the perfect ambience.
Wild West Zone can be played on all devices which is perfect as it provides you with the opportunity and freedom to play whenever and wherever you wish.
Gameplay and Bets
Wild West Zone plays out over 5-reels with each reel having the capacity to showcase 3 – 5 symbols. You can create wins when you land the same symbols next to each other from left to right. When it comes to placing your bet you can bet a minimum of 10p per spin up to a maximum of £20 per spin and you can adjust the bet level using the pile of coins that are situated in the left hand corner of your game screen. There is also an auto play function should you prefer to sit back and watch the action unfold. The auto play function can be set to spin between 5 – 100 spins and there is also the opportunity for you to create win and loss limits. The return to player is on the low side and sits at 95.82% and this is a volatile slot with high variance. If you land the perfect symbol and multiplier combination you will land the maximum win of 7,794x your bet.
When it comes to the game symbols you can expect to come across the lower paying symbols which are the usual playing cards from 10 through to Ace as well as a revolver, cowboy boots complete with spurs, a bottle of whiskey and sticks of dynamite. The sheriff’s badge is the highest paying standard symbol and if you land combinations of 3, 4, 5 or 6 symbols you will be rewarded with 0.75x, 1.25x, 2x or 5x your stake. The wild is represented by the sharpshooter and although it does not offer any pay outs as such it can substitute for all the symbols to create winning combinations.
Bonus and Features
The slot offers the Dynamic Ways engine which makes it unique and the other highlights include free spins with expanding multipliers and re-spins. The slot plays out over the five reels and the number of symbols per reel is dependent on whether they land in the Dynamic highlighted Zone, this varies from 3 – 5 and has an impact on the number of ways available for you to win, and this process is the Dynamic Ways feature.
Next is the most wanted re-spins feature and this is activated if you land a wild in the Dynamic Zone but there is no win created. The wild is held on the reels and the reels spin again and should you land another wild are rewarded with a multiplier that goes up in 1x increments. The re-spins continue until there is no new win landed and the final winnings are paid plus the active multiplier. The free spins symbol is represented by the stage coach which land on the 1st and 3rd reels however if you only land the symbol on the 1st reel you are rewarded with a consolation prize whilst the multiplier that is located at the side of your reels will increase by x1 when you activate the free spins.
The Canyon Heist Free Spins Bonus feature is activated when you land scatters in the Dynamic Zone on your 1st, 3rd and 5th reels on the same spin and you are then rewarded 8 free spins and there are lots of extras available in this feature too including starting the feature with any multipliers you have accrued in the base game.
Every time you manage to land either the Most Wanted Re-spins or the Something For Nothing features (explained above) during the free spins, your multiplier increases by 1x, and you can also reactivate the feature and if you land scatters on your 2nd, 4th and 6th reels you are rewarded with a further 8 free spins.
Wild West Zone with its Dynamic Ways plays in the same style as the Megaways slots and really helps to keep things moving forwards. Wild West Zone is the second in the series of Dynamic Ways slots from Leander Games with the first being Gem Zone. The features on offer are excellent and you will find the Canyon Heist Free Spins Bonus feature will give you the best win possibilities.
I really enjoyed playing this slot and whilst it may not be the most perfectly polished slot when it comes to the imagery but the comic book design and suitable banjo playing soundtrack really do add that something extra to create the perfect ambience to play within. This may not rank as highly as some of the Leander games, but you can rest assured that it is as much fun.
