Have you heard that expression: “This town ain’t big enough for the both of us and I’m going to give you 24 hours to get out”?
Because it turns out that we have 2 Western slots that are Wild at Wombat Casino. There’s a Net Ent game called Wild Wild West – The Great Train Heist, and there’s this NextGen slot called simply: Wild West. Well, it did come first!
The Wombat says: Ride ’em Cowboy! Yes wombat fans you won’t be surprised to hear that the theme of the Wild West slot is cowboys, horses, saloon bars and boots with spats – but this time the action is all set in a whiskey-swilling, poker-playing drinking establishment. Sounds right up this wombat’s street! But now to the game play…
Look and Feel
This slot features animated 3D design and some fun graphic touches – check out the Golden Rooster slot for a later NextGen game with more of these kinds of touches. Or the Snowflakes slot for that matter, which was released at the same time.
Anyway- back to the Wild West. The reels are set inside an Old West saloon with saloon doors, swinging wagon wheels from the ceiling and dubious liquor on the tables. Plus, all of your console and gaming options are designed as poker chips which is a nice addition. The quality sound effects and twangy banjo tunes also add to the Wild West casino vibe.
Wild West Slot Game Play
This 5 reel, 3 row 10 pay-line slot from NextGen will give you plenty of small wins in the base game – but the Free Spins is where you’ll find the cool hard cash. Your symbols on the reels include the poker playing cowboy, and his stack of chips, a saucy brunette barmaid, a horse clutching a wad of cash, the saloon itself, a whole load of winnings, bourbon and some glasses, red cowboy boots and a card dealer.
The Cowboy symbol is your Wild in the game and only appears on reels 3, 4 and 5, but he also has another Ace up his sleeve as this symbol will also trigger off the Free Spins! Land just the 1x Cowboy symbol in a winning combo on the reels to set off the Bonus round. The stack of chips symbols will appear in this feature, too.
Free Spins Round
It’s 5 Free Spins for you in this bonus feature – which doesn’t sound like loads, BUT the spins take place on a new set of reels which now include the Stack of Chips Symbol. Each time the symbol lands on the reels you’ll win a cash prize.
If you can land the Cowboy Wild as part of any winning combo during this bonus round you’ll receive five more spins, too. Yee-haaa for the re-trigger!
Super Bet Feature
To the right of the reels you’ll see a big old bottle of booze, this is the Super Bet, an extra wager which boosts the payouts of any wins that include Cowboy Wild. Click on the Superbet option with 10 extra coins to have your Wild wins doubled with a x2 multiplier, or with 40 extra coins to have your Wild wins multiplied by 5.
This feature really comes into its own during the Free Spins bonus. Whacking up the Super Bet to full with those 5x multipliers means the bonus rounds hit regularly and your big chipstack wins are even more lucrative.
Wild West slot comes with an extra Gamble feature. If you’re feeling lucky, you can double or quadruple your cash after any winning spin by clicking on the Hearts/Clubs icon underneath the reels. Next, guess the correct colour of the face-down playing card, or the suit, and you’ll get x2 or x4 your win. The gamble ends if you pick correctly more than 5 times in a row. Well, that’s only fair isn’t it? This feature isn’t available in all countries.
Not bad NextGen, not bad at all. Wild West Slot is a fun game with a unique bonus feature. The Superbet in the Free Spins round is really the way to win big here though, so crank the dial up and unleash the Wilds!
Wombat score: 5/5
This game is not available to UK players. Why not try Wild Trigger from Play’n GO instead?
