Wild West Wilds: Demo

It’s time to don the virtual Stetson and join the sharp shooters trying to gun down a big jackpot in the Wild West Wilds slot. Created by Playtech, this cowboy-themed adventure is played using a 5 reel, 25 payline game engine and comes with classy sound and visuals and simple gameplay.  In our Wild West Wilds review, you’ll find out about respins and free spins that both come with special sheriff’s badge symbols that transform into sticky wilds. The free spins also come with multipliers which can reach up to 10x if you land multiple retriggers. Let’s saddle up and take a closer look.

Wild West Wilds Bonus Features 

Playtech has kept the gameplay in Wild West Wilds relatively straightforward. It’s not overloaded with bonus rounds but there’s enough going on in this dusty desert town to keep things moving.

Respin feature

This round is triggered by landing 2 of the pistol scatter symbol on reels 2, 3 or 5 on the same spin. 1 respin is awarded to begin with. Any silver sheriff’s badge that appears on the triggering spin is shot by a revolver and transforms into a sticky wild symbol. If a sheriff’s badge lands on the respin it too turns into a wild.

Land another 2 scatters and another respin follows. Land 3 and you’ll trigger the Free Games feature.

Free Games feature

Wild West Wilds slot - Free Games feature

The Free Game feature is triggered by landing 3 scatters on the same spin. That can be a standard base game spin or a respin. You’ll then go on to play between 5 and 9 free spins. You could also end up with a multiplier which can double or treble payouts throughout the round.

Land 2 scatters on the same free spin adds another free spin to your total. If you manage to land 3 scatters on the same free spin, you’ll get a full retrigger. Between 5 and 9 more free spins are add to your total. The multiplier will also increase by up to 3.

It’s possible to land multiple retriggers. The multiplier is capped at a maximum of 10x. In theory, it’s possible to land payouts of up to 10,000 x your bet on each free spin if the multipliers reach the 10x cap.

Wild West Wilds Slot RTP & Info 

The 5 reel, 3 row format offers 25 paylines. Land 3 or more matching symbols on 1 of the those paylines, starting from reel 1 to form a winning combination. You can play from just 5p per spin to as much as £500 (a spin).

Autoplay is an option here. You can set between 5 and 100 spins. There’s no possibility to set win or loss limits but you can play until the feature is triggered. That’s the Free Games feature by the way and not the Respin feature.

The RTP in Wild West Wilds is 96.14% which is about average. We found these sharp shooters delivered some pretty volatile action. The variance here is in the high range. You might endure some spells as dry as the Texas desert. Get on a roll with the multipliers in the free spins and the loot can quickly build.

The max payout is 10,000 x your bet per free spin with the 10x multiplier. On each base game spin, you could still win up to 1,000 your bet.

Wild West Wilds Theme – classic Western setup

Wild West Wilds slot - base game

A classic old West, one horse town forms the backdrop to the action in the Wild West Wilds slot. The reels are flanked by wooden buildings.  There’s a hint of country about the backing track but it’s rather subdued and sedate. We expected a bit more oomph on that score. It doesn’t really add much to the atmosphere here.

On those reels you’ll find A to J royal values as well as 4 higher paying character symbols. There’s a Clint Eastwood-style outlaw, a show girl, a Dr Quinn Medicine Woman and a grizzly old sheriff. Land 3, 4 or 5 of the sheriff symbol in combination and you’ll pocket a prize equal to 1, 8 or 50 times your bet.

As you’d expect from a slot with this title, wilds are central to much of the best action here. The brown wild is the standard wild. This replaces all the standard symbols and can help form part of a winning combination in both the base game and the bonus round.

There’s also a silver sheriff’s badge which can developer magical wild properties when it appears in either of the game’s 2 feature rounds. The 2 wilds pay like the high value sheriff symbol. There’s also a scatter which doesn’t offer any payouts.

Playtech’s HTML5 technology means that Wild West Wilds is available on desktop, tablet and mobile devices including Apple and Android. The simple design and gameplay works well on the smaller screen. No grumbles here.

Wild West Wilds Thoughts/Opinion – volatile trip to the Wild, Wild West

Wild West Wilds is a rather simple slot. If it was a movie, it’s more in the style of The Good, The Bad and the Ugly rather than say The Hateful Eight.

The bonus features can deliver some pretty good action though. The respins come along regularly. The free spins are harder to find but the multipliers and sticky wilds can make the wait worthwhile and give you 10,000 x bet payouts.

The Western-themed slot has enjoyed something of a renaissance. Wild West Wilds is another decent enough addition to the field. However, the best slot is Dead or Alive II from NetEnt which offers potential wins of 111,111 x bet payouts from 1 of free spins features.
