Wild West Wilds Introduction
Wild West Wilds from the developers at Playtech unsurprisingly follows a Wild West theme as the name would suggest. Most of the reel adventure comes from supercharge wild symbols. The slot plays out on 5-reels, 3-rows and 25 fixed pay lines and is bolstered even further with the return to player of 96.14% with a maximum pay out of 10,000x your stake.
If you are feeling brave and dare to pass through this Wild West frontier town be sure to bring your wild cards because these reels mean business. The slot offers a lot to play for when it comes to extra features. The scatter symbol activates the free spins bonus and there are two types of wild symbols which both carry potential pay outs as well as substituting for all the regular symbols to create winning combinations. If you are ready to head off on a Wild West adventure, then let us look at what the slot offers and the characters that you can expect to come across.
Wild West Wilds Design
Playtech have created a decent slot that is expertly executed and set within a truly believable old Wild West town. In the background you will see the main street which is lined by wooden houses complete with shutters. The symbols in this game come in two categories, the lower paying which are the usual playing card symbols and the higher paying symbols which in this case are portraits.
The portraits comprise of the Sheriff, and another man that resembles Clint Eastwood, there is also a saloon girl and a cowgirl who certainly knows what to do with her rifle. The graphics and the way they have been used are excellent and this slot announces its win outcomes through clouds of dust and gunshots.
How to Play in the Wild West
Once you are ready to play you need to select your total bet, this can be done in a few short clicks on the plus and minus buttons which you will find in the total bet panel. The amounts that you can win as shown in the middle of the screen just underneath the middle reel. Once your bet is in place you need to use the green rectangular spin button, and this will start your reels spinning once per active bet. There is also an auto play button which allows you to choose from a list of automatic spins, and there are six pre-set values that start at 10 and end at 1000 automatic spins. There is also an optional setting which in this case is called Turbo and causes the reels to spin faster and stop sooner. The automatic spin function is ideal for those who prefer to sit back and watch the action unfold before them.
Bets for Wild West Wilds start at just £0.10 per spin and go up to a massive £500 per spin which is the same for most Playtech slots however you should remember that this could be subject to availability at the casino where you are going to play. With such a wide bet range Wild West Wilds will appeal to an exceptionally large audience.
Finally there is the menu button which takes you straight to the pay table and it is here where you can review all of the information regarding this slot, for example what the wilds can do and what the pay outs are for every individual symbol.
Winning in the Wild West
This slot features sticky wild symbols, multipliers that go up to 10x and a free spins bonus. There are additional features but to get to them you need to make the spins in the base game where you will find the symbols that slot into either the low or the high paying categories.
There are two wilds, and both can substitute for all the other symbols to create win combinations as well as them being worth a prize of 50x your winning bet should you land 5 on the same pay line. The Sheriff symbol will also pay this amount.
The remaining symbols in this lot pay less and landing 3 of a kind will return just under your stake so this is where you require the help of the wilds and the bonus features.
Features & Bonuses
The first bonus feature can be activated by the scatter symbol, which is depicted by a pistol. Landing three scatters will see you begin the free spins which can be anything from 5 to 9 spins and will reward you with multipliers that are worth either 1x, 2x or 3x the price that you have won. Additionally, if you have two scatters that stop on your reels you are rewarded with an extra free spin. Landing three scatters can reactivate the bonus however they will also help to build up the multiplier amount to a maximum of 10x for each instance of a winning prize.
Wild West Wilds Is one of the slots that Playtech could decide to provide a free demo game for, which is an extremely useful feature. Currently there is no concrete evidence, but a demo play function could become available and if it does this is one feature I would suggest you take advantage of as not only do you get the opportunity to get a feel for the game and see how it works but you do not need to risk any of your own money until you feel ready.
Wild West Wilds is a highly volatile game and therefore you have an excellent chance to land a few small wins, however, these will be spread across your gaming experience, but does leave you time to land the eventual big pay out. The extra features give this old Wild West town slot more excitement particularly with the two wilds and the re-spins.
I enjoyed playing this game and although I did not land the highest prize available, I did come away even after spending an hour or so with an even balance so this meant that I technically played for nothing and it was incredibly enjoyable.
