Overview El Paso Gunfight
Shoot ‘em up Wild West adventures await the intrepid players of El Paso Gunfight. From Mexican bandits to bloodthirsty bounty hunters, this slot has every exciting character and crazy western icon you could hope for. Besides this, there are plenty of bullets flying all over the place, as well as blood and gold. If you like adrenaline-pumping thrill rides that smell of whiskey and gunpowder, this is the slot game for you. Nolimit City has truly left no stone unturned for this game.
When it comes to the actual game mechanics, there are 8 features in this game, each of which have been cleverly designed to make sure that you get the most out of this slot. One of the rarer features included in this game is the x Nudge Wilds feature. These are wilds which in addition to fulfilling their normal role of substituting in for other symbols to make wins, also nudge to become fully expanded wilds, covering the entire reel on which they occupy, improving your chances significantly when it comes to triggering a win. In addition to these wilds, there are multipliers, transforming symbols and a free spins round with a lot of conditioning bonuses such as locked wilds and Jumping Wilds.
Theme and Symbols
According to Nolimit City, this game is not a generalised Wild West slot, but it is instead based on the life and legend of American Lawman Dallas Stoudenmire. Stoudenmire is one of the legends of the Wild West whose feats were incredibly impressive, yet for some reason, he hasn’t received the same praise as some of his contemporaries. Anyway, his life of gunslinging, boozing and cleaning up crooked towns in the American West is the inspiration for this slot. If you score a big win, a slide show of old polaroid pictures of Stoudenmire will appear one after the other showing him going about his bounty hunter duties.
The background for this slot is a saloon bar which has probably seen better days. Behind the reels is a stack of shelves containing the odd bottle of liquor. The shelves have been peppered with bullets over time which has given the background somewhat of an exciting confrontational feel. You assume that this bar belongs to a saloon which is one of the local gang’s haunts. The board is very much in the same style just with a little more decorative finesse, as the board is supposed to be a mirror frame made from wood. However, here too the window has been shot.
Symbols as ever comprise a mix of A, K, Q, J and 10 royals for the lower paying symbols and a collection of pictures for the higher paying ones. The higher paying symbols are the innocent bystander, the cattle rustler Johnny Hale, the local constable Gus Krempkau and Marshal George Cambell. Out of these, Marshall George is the most valuable, paying 6x your total stake for 5 in a row. There is also a scatter which is the game’s logo and two Sheriff’s badges which have different feature implications.
El Paso Gunfight is played on a 5-reel game board with the choice of two different game window formations. These are the high or very high volatility set up. Each set-up has its own configuration of symbols. These are as follows:
High Volatility = 4x3x3x3x2 with 23,334 pay lines
Extreme Volatility = 2x3x3x3x4 with 43,332 pay lines
As you can see, the number of pay lines changes depending on which set up that you play.

There is a lot of bonus content to explain for this slot so why don’t we just dive right in.
The first feature that needs explaining is the Stoudenmire xNudge Wilds feature. These special wild symbols come in an expanded format of 3 positions high and can only land on the central 3 reels. When they do land, they instantly nudge to become this size. Every nudge that is registered increases a multiplier by x1. Special wild multiplier values can also land which are added to the current multiplier that you have in play. The highest multiplier you can achieve this way is 9x.
The second feature we will explain is the Deputy and Marshall Raid feature. This bonus is triggered when the badge symbols land. The type of badge that lands determine the nature of the bonus. If a Marshall Badge lands it will transform all the high-value symbols on the playing window into 1 randomly selected high-value symbol, including itself. If a Deputy badge lands, it will transform all low symbols on the board into low-value symbol including themselves. However, if they both land at the same time both bonuses are applied, and the playing window expands to a 4x3x3x3x4 format and the badges that landed become wilds.
Thirdly there is the Gunfight Free Spins feature. To activate this feature players must land 3 scatter symbols on the reels at the same time – the scatters are the game’s skull and guns logo. The game will then grant players 8 free spins. Before these spins start, however, you will be given the choice of playing them in the high volatility or extremely high volatility version of the game. Having chosen, you are taken through to the reels where the triggering scatters are changed for Jumping Wild icons. These wilds ‘jump’ to a new position with every new spin. If a normal Stoudenmire wild symbol lands on a reel with a Jumping Wild, the multiplier doubles. Getting more free spins is as simple as landing Marshall Badges. Landing these symbols can also trigger the Deputy of Marshall Gunfight Spins.
The Deputy of Marshall Gunfight Spins features are activated from the base game by landing 3 of the scatters in the middle 3 reels plus one of the badge symbols. 9 free spins will then follow. If you trigger this bonus from the base game, you can choose the volatility model. When you are taken through to the free spins the scatters that triggered it will be changed for Jumping Wilds. The badge symbols will also change out the low or high-value symbols as they do in the raid feature. However, for this round, the transformed symbols stay for the duration of the feature.
Next on the feature list is the Drunken Gunfighter Spins feature. To trigger this feature 3 scatters plus both the Marshall and Deputy Badges need to land on the same spin. If you manage this, you will be rewarded with 10 free spins on the 4x3x3x3x4 format grid with 5 Jumping Wilds active. Landing the Stoudenmire wild in this round with a Jumping Wild will double the attached multiplier of every active Jumping Wild on screen. What is more, the Jumping Wild is then taken out of the game to be replaced by a special sticky Stoudenmire wild which locks in position for the duration of the feature.
Lastly, there is the 4 Dead in 5 seconds feature (named after Stoudenmire’s most famous gunfight). You can activate this bonus by landing all 5 characters as well as a Stoudenmire wild. The game will then grant you one re-spin with expanded 3x3 Stoudenmire wilds on every reel.
There is a bonus buy feature too, but it is not available in the UK.
Thematically riveting, laden with exciting features and with a great top prize, El Paso Gunfight is one of the most comprehensively impressive slots from Nolimit City they have ever produced. Especially admirable is that they based the game on a real-life hero rather than a strange mishmash of Wild West films as is usually the form.
