El Cowboy Megaways slot by StakeLogic is one of their most colourful Megaways yet, more playable than the older retro-themed ones like Super Joker Megaways. I would suggest it's at least on par with Black Gold Megaways and some might say it could give The Expendables Megaways a run for its money. We have the typical and possibly overused Mexican bandit theme here with the usual noises, symbols and dusty town background. Moving on, can our bankroll survive a shootout in the dust here or will it have El to pay?
On the reels...
El Cowboy Megaways slot offers up six reels of 2-7 rows so we get 64-117649 ways to win here for each 20-coin play. Symbols can appear stacked and the winning ones are replaced via cascades. The Red Bandit at 12x stake is the top 6-of-a-kind here with the lowest object paying 0.6x. You can only get Wilds on reels 2-6 via a modifier and there are Muerto scatters on all six reels.
Wilds of El Cowboy Megaways slot
Each spin the scrolling positions above reels 2-6 will display 0-5 Wild variants. The scrolling positions under reels 2-6 will produce 0-5 Sheriff Star Wild tokens. If any reel has a Wild Variant above it and Token below then the Wild modifier is activated for that reel. You can get Expanding Wild, Dropping Wild (which will drop down its reel and remain for 5 re-spins) or Multiplier Wilds of 2,3,4 or 5x which if occurring more than once multiply each other. You could trigger multiple Wild Variants on any spin and this can lead to some substantial base game hits!
Free Games Bonus of El Cowboy Megaways
Muerto scatters can land on all 6 reels and you require 4 of them for 15 free spins, 5 give 20 and all 6 give 25. No increasing multiplier here but multipliers aplenty can occur! Your expanding Wild doesn't now appear on the top nor the Dropping Wild but the multiplier does along with normal Wilds of which up to 15 can be added. The Wild Star activator on the bottom is now a stick of dynamite which results in an animation by the Bandit when it activates a Wild. You don't get extra spins or any retriggers but what you do get is a Win Multiplier Wheel on the right of the grid. - Each free game it spins and multiplies any win by its landed value which ranges from 2-6x, 8x, 10x, 12x, 15x, 20x, 25x, 50x or even 100x. Don't expect anything over 10x though but as you can possibly tell this mechanic can produce huge wins when taking into account several multiplying Wilds could be present too. It's capped at 10,000x stake and in some jurisdictions feature-buy options are available at 100x bet for standard 4-6 scatter trigger, 300x standard trigger but with a minimum of 5400-ways per spin and finally a whopping 1000x for getting the full 117649-ways per spin!
El Cowboy Megaways has a RTP of 96.21% and is a pretty good game both appearance wise and aurally although I must say the symbols are sometimes hard to distinguish with little contrast between some of them despite their different objects. You can get some massive base game hits if you activate 3 or 4 reels with the 2-5x multiplying Wilds on or Expanding Wilds. The free spins are quite exciting via the addition of the Multiplier Wheel which is applied to the combined wins of any spin and in my view is better than the traditional increasing multiplier model. It weren't a cowboy who designed this excellent Megaways...
