Free Desperados Wild Megaways slot
Please be patient, some games take longer to load than others!
Desperados Wild Megaways slot by Inspired Gaming is this developer's first Megaways attempt although being under the Scientific Games umbrella, it's not the first from that platform. We had Raging Rhino Megaways as SG's first and then Shufflemaster's version of Bally's 88 Fortunes Megaways which isn't bad at all. Add in Relax Gaming's Temple Tumble Megaways and I think we'll be seeing many more in future. Here was have a wild west drumbeat as the soundtrack with the reels set over a desert mesa and various dynamite explosions when we win and cascade. So can our bankroll have a wild time here or will be leaving, well, desperate?
On The Reels...
As there is a top scrolling line of 4 symbols here there are 324 to 117,649 ways available each spin on Desperados Wild Megaways slot through varying reel rows of 2 to 7 symbols. The pays are exactly the same as Bonanza Megaways with Wilds only appearing on the top scroll above the centre 4 reels and 50x bet for the top 6-of-a-kind, the Sheriff Star. We have Dynamite next at 7.5x, Pistols or Jack Daniels at 2x with six card values paying 1.75x down to 0.8x and symbols appearing stacked. You have a Wanted Poster style scatter on all 6 reels and no random modifiers with winning tiles being removed and replacements falling down from above for multiple wins on the same spin.
There are two types here which you need 4 scatters to trigger. It is possible to get many more than 4 scatters and you will get 2 extra spins for each one to a maximum of 76 for the Sunset and 80 spins for the Jail House if you use the feature improvement gamble wheel.
Sunset Spins - these are the standard mechanic which means an increasing multiplier for any winning action with no limit. You only begin with 8 though for a basic 4-scatter trigger but can retrigger 5 or 10 spins with 3 or 4 respectively appearing on the top scrolling reel which is the only place they do during the spins.
Jail House - you choose this option and you get 12 spins but it's very volatile! Any Wilds appearing will drop to the bottom of the reel and stick, also at that point the rows on that reel, 3 to 7, will also freeze for the remainder of the bonus. Should another Wild appear, then the sticky Wild becomes 2x and so-on up to a maximum of 7x if the reel had 7 rows when the first Wild landed. If you fill a reel completely then you are awarded 5 extra spins.
Desperados Wild Megaways slot has tried to be original in keeping the increasing multiplier spins and adding another option, although that Wild stacking option has been seen before on Genie Jackpots Megaways. The RTP is a solid 96.49% and you do a get a segment gamble if you want more free spins than the paltry 8 you begin with for the increasing multiplier option, but be warned you only get a cash award if you lose. The sounds are repetitive and the graphics or animations nothing special, but then again they seldom are on this type of game as it's all about potential. I won't say I'm wild about meeting these desperados again but nevertheless it's a perfectly competent addition to the Megaways catalogue...
