Yggdrasil Gaming’s The One Armed Bandit Video Slot Review

The One Armed Bandit: Demo

Go for a Wild West shootout in The One Armed Bandit, a volatile 5 reel, 20 payline video slot from Yggdrasil Gaming. Highlights here include multiplier wilds that can boost payouts by 5x, respins with sticky wilds and a free spins round where a multiplier starts at 5x but can go as high as 20x. Play on your PC, tablet or mobile device from between 10p and £50 per spin.

The design in The One Armed Bandit is as impressive as you’d expect from an Yggdrasil Gaming video slot. A dusty one-horse town forms the backdrop to the action and you’ll see an assortment of wild west-inspired symbols spinning around the reels. So far, so standard. There are some unusual extras to get stuck into here though.

Respins feature – each time a scatter hits it turns into a wild and a respin is awarded. The 5x multiplier wilds are in play on designated reels during the respins too which can really get things moving. More than 1 scatter delivers multiple respins.

Free Spins feature – this round is activated by landing 5 scatters. You’ll then go on to play 10 free spins. If you trigger the free spins while respins are outstanding, they’re added to your tally.  The free spins begin with a multiplier of 5x. You can add to that though. Every time a bonus symbol hits, 1 extra free spin is added to your total. 2 bonus symbols adds a 5x to your multiplier. If the happy circumstance of landing 3 bonus symbols, you’ll get a 10x multiplier boost with a top 20x multiplier possible.

There’s plenty to like about this Wild West adventure. Yggdrasil Gaming titles are usually among the best you’ll play as far as design goes and The One Armed Bandit is another cracking looking game. There are pretty wild extras on offer here too. T

he respins, free spins and multipliers can combine to excellent effect – there are possible wins of 9,440 times your bet on every free spin. Be warned though, this is an extremely volatile video slot. You could see your bankroll hit the dirt quickly.

Get the multipliers rolling during the feature though and the coins can quickly build. If you like the outlaw theme or slick looking volatile action, then a showdown with The One Armed Bandit is recommended. I also suggest you try NetEnt’s Dead or Alive II which has the same theme and offers much bigger payouts.
