Outlaw Slot Review – Big Time Gaming
Halloween seems like so long ago now, already a month since the spooky day. Now the countdown for Christmas has begun, each studio is eager to release a game filled with Christmas spirit for the year. Let’s catch up with popular studio Big Time Gaming, best known for its infamous Megaways tools and exciting launches. The last game I reviewed by Big Time Gaming is titled ‘Castle Of Terror‘, which includes a jaw dropping max win capped at 61,720x and a Free Spins feature with a unique Holy Water mechanic active on each spin. Today we are learning all about ‘Outlaw’, which is available to play now!
The studio is well known within the casino industry for its unique titles and big success. Thanks to the invention of the Megaways tool and innovative launches each year. One of the best known is Danger High Voltage, which was released in 2017. Since this launch, there have been slots with similar mechanics and features, such as Lil’ Devil, released in 2019 and Wild Flower in 2021. Each sequel includes big improvements every time, with bigger potential and new mechanics invented. The fourth instalment in this possible series is Outlaw, with a western cowboy theme.
Visuals & Animations
The game background shows off an American Canyon, with cloudy skies and some tall grass below the reel set. There is no wildlife but the vultures in the sky hunting their next meal. There are some animations within the game background which are subtle, such as the clouds and grass movements. The reel set stands out with vibrant colours thanks to the symbol artwork and animations. Both full reel Wilds have an animation which plays when it lands on the reel set. When 2 scatters land, the music gets you hyped, and the whole screen changes. Big Time Gaming never fails with visual aspects, with a lot of detail and aspects which make you want to stay on their games.
With the iconic soundtracks, animations and other aspects, which get you pumped when you hit wins. When you enter the Free Spins feature, the game background changes to the inside of a saloon, with shelves filled with booze and lanterns hanging above the reel set, the hype is amped up within these features. With the animations which occur and soundtrack which gets your head bopping as you spin. Honestly, a round of applause for Big Time Gaming for nailing it once again!
Outlaw has a setup of 6 reels by 2 to 7 rows; this includes up to 117,649 Megaways. This slot is high variance with a set RTP of 96.10% and a max win capped at 64,400x. You can bet from £0.20 to £20.
Outlaw Pay Table & Symbols
There are 14 symbols in total; this includes 6 low-paying symbols. These are represented by 9, 10, J, Q, K and A. There are also 4 premium symbols; these are represented by Cactus, Bottles Of Liquor, Roses and Skulls. In addition to these regular symbols is a Wild Outlaw, Wild Sheriff, Silver Scatter and Gold Megascatter. The highest paying symbol is the Skull premium, which pays 10x for 5 across all reels. Wilds only appear on reels 2 to 5 and can fill the reel. Wins are multiplied by 7x if a Wild Sheriff is part of the win. Wilds substitute for all regular symbols, excluding the scatters.
Outlaw Features & Mechanics
Landing 3 or more scatters during a base game spin will trigger the Free Spins feature. If one of these scatters from the initial trigger is a Megascatter, the Enhanced Free Spins are awarded instead. You can purchase a Free Spins feature for 70x and 300x for an Enhanced Free Spins feature. There are 2 Free Spins features you can choose from;
Fallen Angel Free Spins
7 Free Spins are awarded, and any of the low-paying symbols are revealed as the sticky Wild for reels 2 to 5. Once this symbol lands on a reel between 2 to 5 it will become a sticky Wild for the duration of this feature. A full reel of sticky Wilds will award 3 additional Free Spins. For the Enhanced Fallen Angel Free Spins, a premium symbol is selected instead of the sticky Wild for reels 2 to 5.
Dizzy In The Head Free Spins
8 Free Spins are awarded, and the special Ladder Wild will appear on each Free Spin. Highlighting a multiplier up to 77x. Landing 3, 4 or 5 scatters during a Free Spin will award 4, 6 or 8 additional Free Spins. For the Enhanced Dizzy In The Head, Free Spins every time the Wild Ladder is part of a win; the multipliers can increase and reach up to 777x.
When a win of 100x or more occurs during base game spins, there is the option to exchange 100x for 7/8 Free Spins. Whenever a win between 25x to under 100x occurs, there is the option to exchange the entire win for a chance to be awarded 7/8 Free Spins. With a spin on a gamble wheel, landing on a Green segment will award Free spins. Landing on a Red segment will mean a loss, returning you to the base game.
Overall, I think this slot is a fantastic release by Big Time Gaming and will definitely do well in the casino market. With high variance on offer, some well known mechanics and some new ones all in one slot. Visually the studio always know what they are doing. Thanks to the iconic soundtracks used, big win music which is always the same catchy tune and animations which keep your full attention while you spin. The game background completely transforms when a scatter tease occurs and when you enter the Free Spins feature. Visually this game is a masterpiece and you can tell the studio has good attention to detail. Now onto the Features & Mechanics;
The base game spins can be exciting thanks to the 2 full reel wilds which can land. One is a regular wild and one is a 7x Wild, which can lead to some nice wins. The main attraction is the Free Spins features, with 4 different options. 2 regular features and 2 Enhanced versions of the original features. Fallen Angel Free Spins awards a randomly chosen symbol, which can land as a sticky Wild on particular reels. There is a lot of potential within this feature if you get lucky with the Wild placements and retriggers. The Dizzy In The Head Free Spins includes a special Ladder Wild, which is always active and can reach up to 77x and 777x in the Enhanced spins.
