Wild West Gold Slot Review – Pragmatic Play
It has been a while since I last reviewed a Pragmatic Play slot, the last was for the game titled ‘Yum Yum Powerways‘. Which has a max win capped at 5,000x and a Free Spins feature with multipliers. Today we are going back in time, only one year to learn all about one of the provider’s most successful releases. Titled ‘Wild West Gold’, originally released 26th March 2020.
Wild West Gold has one of the most popular game themes. Wild Wild West by NetEnt is the most popular with this particular theme, with its sequel more successful than the original. Pragmatic Play has decided it is their turn to create a wild west slot. The game background is a foggy night sky, with western buildings on either side of the reel set. The detail in visuals is done well, however, the art style could have been changed to suit the game theme better.
This game has a classic setup of 5 reels by 3 rows, this includes 40 set pay lines. Wild West Gold is a high variance game due to the set RTP of 96.51% and max win capped at 6,750x. You can bet from £0.20 – £100.
Wild West Gold Symbols
Wild West Gold has 12 symbols in total, this includes 5 low-paying symbols. These are represented by 10, Q, K, J, and A. There are also 5 premium symbols, these are represented by gun belts, mistress, cowgirl, black hat villain, and a cowboy. In addition to these paying symbols is a scatter symbol and wild. The highest paying symbol is sheriff premium, which pays 20x for 5 across a pay line. The wild symbol only lands on reels 2,3 and 4.
Wild West Gold Features
Central to this game is the ‘Free Spins feature. This is triggered when you land 3 scatters, on reels 1,3, and 5 during a spin. This will award 8 free spins, wilds that land will become sticky and stay in place for the free spins feature. Symbols except the scatter can appear with sheriff badges on them. When 2 or more of these land you are awarded extra spins. 2 Badges = 4 Extra Spins, 3 Badges = 8 Extra Spins, 4 Badges = 12 Extra Spins, and 5 badges = 20 Extra Spins. There is a bonus guarantee of 10x.
Overall, I think Pragmatic Play has done a fantastic job creating this game. The game is very fun, just missing some base game action. Be sure to try the game for yourself and check out our exclusive casino offers.
