Wild West Gold slot by Pragmatic Play has a nice appearance on first impressions with bright artwork over a background of the archetypal desert town of wooden buildings in dust. You get music from the era chuntering away softly in the background as you would expect and it joins some pretty esteemed slots of late using the same theme. Netent's Wild Wild West was popular despite its cartoon format, Red Tiger's The Greatest Train Robbery slot not so good and it surely has to be better than WMS' lamentable John Wayne slot. So will our bankroll be safe in this town, or not?
We get 40 fixed pay lines on Wild West Gold slot and symbols can appear stacked on the 5 reels of 4 rows. You get single Wilds in the form of a Sheriff's Badge on the centre 3 reels which randomly reveal 2, 3 or 5x multipliers which are additive. The young Sheriff pays 20x bet for a full line, Gunslinger 12.5x, Lady 7.5x, Girl 5x, Gold 3.75x, Pistols 2.5x with five card values paying 1.5 or 1x for 5-of-a-kind. No modifiers so on with the bonus.
Sunset scatters are necessary on reels 1, 3 and 5 to trigger 8 spins. During these all the Wilds that land are sticky along with their revealed multipliers. A Star can randomly overlay any symbol and if you get 2 you will be rewarded with 4 extra spins, 3 for 8, 4 for 12 and 5 for 20. You get a bonus guarantee here of 10x bet too as with games like WMS' Montezuma. Your bonus will also end automatically should you rack up 10,000x bet on this volatile game.
Wild West Gold slot has a good RTP of 96.51% but it is very high in variance as you would see by the free games. They often retrigger with at least 4 extra but can go without one sticky Wild. If they do land on the same line, you can win very big and can land up to 12 in theory. The base game is alright with balance maintenance due to the multiplying Wilds often coming in to enhance the line pays. Artwork is basic and graphics or animations are average at best, but it is exciting in the feature. I shall try and take some gold from this one-horse town again someday...
