Join a sheriff and a bandit duelling for riches in Cowboy Treasure Deluxe. This Wild West adventure has been created by Play ’N Go and is played using a 5 reel, 5 payline game engine. The highlight is the feature round which awards up to 350 free spins complete with 2 stacked wild symbols. There’s also a shot at hitting 1 of 3 progressive jackpot prizes. Take aim on your PC, tablet or mobile from between 5p and £10 per spin.
The comic book visuals here are nicely done, complemented by a superb spaghetti western-style backing track. Joining the A to J playing cards are a stallion, a glass of whisky, a steam train and a chest full of gold. The best payers are the sheriff and bandit symbols. Land 5 of these in a payline and you’ll receive an award of 6, 15 or 20 times your bet. The sheriff’s badge is the wild. This replaces everything bar the bonus and scatter symbols and also awards 10, 20 or 40 times your bet.
There’s a Free Spins feature which is activated by landing 3, 4 or 5 of the bonus symbol (the pair of pistols) on the same spin. You can then look forward to an initial haul of 7, 9 or 14 free spins. Joining the action here are 2 new symbols – a horseshoe and a pile of coins. Both of these are wild and spin in stacked formation during the feature round.
Before the free spins begin, choose either the horseshoe or the coins. If the one you pick appears more often during the free spins than the other stacked wild, then you’ll get a re-trigger. The amount of free spins is equal to the previous trigger, plus 1 extra free spin. For example, if you landed 7 free spins then the first re-trigger would offer 8 free spins, the second 9 and so on. The maximum number of re-triggers stands at a whopping 350.
The other symbol to look out for is the gold ring scatter. Land 3, 4 or 5 of these on the same spin and you’ll receive a payout equal to 3, 12 or 60 times your bet. You’ll also trigger the Jackpot feature. You’ll then go on to spin 1 of the bronze, silver or gold wheels. Which one you start with depends on the number of triggering scatters:
- Bronze Wheel – you can win between 1.5 and 20 times your bet, a level up to the Silver Wheel or the Tasty Jackpot
- Silver Wheel – you can win between 3 and 25 times your bet, an upgrade to the Gold Wheel Wheel or the Luxury Jackpot
- Gold Wheel – you can win between 4 and 50 times your bet, the Luxury Jackpot or the Dream Chance Jackpot.
This is a pretty simple game but we liked it. The best chances arise from the Free Spins feature where the stacked wilds and re-triggers can deliver some top action.
The Wild West theme has fallen out of favour on the big screen. It remains very popular with video slot players. If you’re among that number, then Cowboy Treasure Deluxe is a game to consider. Saying that, Dead or Alive II by NetEnt cannot be beaten as it offers unprecedented wins of 111,111.11 times your bet in the free spins feature!
