Wild West Gold is set against the backdrop of the American Wild West. Here you’ll find an assortment of characters including gunslingers, cutthroats and the heroic Sheriff. Gameplay revolves around the 5×4 grid and features forty paylines. You’ll need to match at least three symbols starting from the left of the reels.
Symbols include the aforementioned characters, plus 10-A cards, a bag of gold and a revolver. The characters make up the premium paying symbols, with the Sheriff being the highest. Land five Sheriffs on a spin and you’ll take home 20x your stake. Play from between €0.20 and €100 with each spin.
As well as the typical paying symbols, Wild West Gold also features wilds and scatters. Wilds are present on reels two, three and four and always have a multiplier present. Multipliers can be 2x, 3x or 5x. They’ll substitute for any other paying symbol and combined with the multipliers, can lead you to landing a big win.
Scatters in the game appear on reels one, three and five. As with other games, landing three on a spin will unlock the Wild West Gold free spins. You’ll get eight to begin with, but this can increase during the bonus mode.
The Wild West Gold bonus mode can lead to some really impressive wins as this is where you’ll encounter sticky wilds. Wilds will stay in place on the reels during the free spins and will reveal a multiplier when they form a win. On top of this, scatter overlays in the form of gold stars can appear over other symbols. Depending on how many stars you collect, you can add between two and twenty more free spins.
The game features multiplier wilds and scatters. During the free spins, you can also find sticky wilds and further scatters.
The game has been optimised to run correctly on all devices, including iOS and Android tablets and phones.
The game has a confirmed RTP rate of 96.51%.
We definitely enjoyed our time playing Wild West Gold. The game may not be completely original or unique, but there are some nice designs, and if you’re a fan of Wild West games there’s still a lot to keep you entertained.
Wins don’t come that often but during the bonus rounds you can really start to rack up some impressive amounts of cash. Of course, landing three scatters isn’t that easy, but the promise of those big wins was enough to keep us playing for a long time.
