The American Wild West is a popular topic not just for slot developers but for movie writers and book authors too. There have been countless stories told about it and movies made with it as a theme. Wild West from Next Gen gaming is obviously a slot with the same theme. This is a humorous slot however, and far from the other gritty, dark titles that can be found online.
Wild West has five reels and only ten paylines. It has a number of bonus games as well as free spins and a wild symbol. The lines can be played for as little as 0.01 and going up to 10 coins per line so Wild West will be attractive to those of all budgets. With its different extras and simple layout the slot will attract both new and experienced players as well.
Does not Take Itself Seriously
Wild West is a fun slot. The characters are all in cartoon style with large noses and bigger boobs. The reels are set in a saloon, with the buttons at the bottom of the screen being done to look like Poker chips. The graphics are crisp and modern and would look good in any animated movie. The sound track is also good, with authentic Wild West sounds like jingling spurs and whinnying horses and country music.
Wild West Symbols
Funnily enough in a slot where symbols would not actually be out of place, as many a cowboy whiled away their time by playing the popular card game, we do not find any on the reels. Wild West has a bunch of cowboy themed icons, none of which anything to do with poker. Red cowboy boots and whiskey are worth 100 coins for five of them, whilst bags of cash and the saloon being worth 150. A rather frightening looking horse is worth 200 coins and a busty saloon girl is worth 1000 coins.
Wild Cowboys and Other Features
The cowboy himself is the games wild symbol. He will appear on reels three four and five and can replace all base symbols in the game. The cowboy wild is also responsible for granting the free games, when a win is made involving him you will be granted with five free spins. During this free spins round if you find a scattered cash stack symbol you will awarded a random chip prize. More wild cowboys on your reels during this round will retrigger it.
Super Bet and Gamble feature
Like result details are shown in many games of keno online, the Super bet feature sits to the right of the reels and looks like a bottle of hooch. Hooch is the old timey cowboy name for alcohol. This is basically an extra feature that boosts the payout of any win that includes the wild cowboy symbol. This does cost extra though, for all ten paylines to have the super bet feature will cost you an extra ten coins. This will double all wild wins though. Adding an extra 40 coins to all ten paylines will cause all wins to receive a 5x multiplier.
Wild West also has a gamble feature; here you can double or nothing any win that you create by correctly guessing the colour of a playing card. Beware however; guess wrong and you can lose that win totally.
