Today we are learning all about ‘Wanted Dead Or A Wild’, which is available to play now across all sites!
The studio presents a wild west-themed game in this latest release. The game background artwork has a unique detailed aesthetic I have not seen before. This image shows off a dark setting with the moon behind the reel set, tall tree trunks, and other details to look out for. Symbols are represented by the usual 9 – A low paying. The theme-related items as premium symbols such as money bags, whiskey bottles, and skulls.

There are also 5 premium symbols, these are represented by skulls, an outlaw, bags of money, whiskey bottles, and a revolver chamber. In addition to these regular symbols is a duel at dawn scatter, dead man’s hand scatter, the great train robbery scatter, wild symbol, multiplier symbol, and a vs symbol. The highest paying symbol is the wild symbol, which pays 20x for 5 across a pay line. Wilds substitute for all symbols except the bonus symbols and vs symbols.
Wanted Dead Or A Wild Features
Landing 3 or more Duel symbols during a base game spin will trigger the ‘Duel At Dawn‘ bonus. This will award 10 Free Spins, more Vs symbols are present compared to the base game during these spins.
Landing 3 or more Dead symbols during a base game spin will trigger the ‘Dead Man’s Hand‘ bonus. There is a goal to collect as many wilds and multipliers as possible during the initial collect phase of this feature. Wilds are collected above the reel on the left and the current total multiplier is shown to the right. Every time a wild or multiplier is collected respins are reset to 3. The collect phase continues until 3 non-winning spins in a row occur. The game will then change into the ‘Showdown‘ phase, 3 spins are awarded. Each showdown spin will have the number of collected wilds applied to the grid and all wins will then be multiplied.
Landing 3 or more Train Robbery symbols during a base game spin will trigger the ‘The Great Train Robbery‘ bonus. This will award 10 Free Spins, during spins all wild symbols will remain sticky for the duration of these spins.
Each VS Symbol will expand if it’s part of a win once expanded. Once triggered this will expand to cover the reel fully and display two outlaws with different multipliers. A duel will take place and the surviving outlaw’s multiplier will be applied across the entire reel. Possible multiplier values are 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x, 6x, 7x, 8x, 9x, 10x, 20x, 25x, 50x and 100x.
Overall, I think this slot is an interesting release by the provider and filled with many different features. Including a max win capped at 12,500x and 3 different main bonus features. Be sure to try out the game for yourself on release and check out our exclusive casino offers.
