Wild Guns takes the online slots player to an inhospitable Wild West town where five symbol wins can make your high-noon shadow appear even meaner against renegades out there.
The game has everything it needs for a proper 3×5 slot: wild symbols, scatters, a free spins bonus and a maximum payout of 850x your wager.
Wazdan has asked its 3D graphic design team to give this game the best they got. The result is one of the better-looking Wild West slots I’ve seen. In addition to a terrific base game, the visuals are intricate and engaging, so much so that I find the final product more appealing than NetEnt’s Wild Wild West slot.
The player is up against a reel-set of five paylines and symbols that have been drawn quite well. The high-paying set of symbols consists of whiskey bottles, horseshoes, pistols, gold bars, TNT boxes, etc; these do a little ‘dance’ of their own when they form part of a winning outcome. The pistolero on the left is as restless as tumbleweeds and likes to shoot his gun quite often.
No matter how cool the graphics are, I wouldn’t have given Wild Guns more than 20 spins if there hadn’t been extra features.
The wild symbol substitutes for all standard symbols, except for the scatter/bonus. Besides helping make or complementing win outcomes, the wild adds a 2x multiplier on every win.
Scatter symbols trigger the free spins bonus and pay a cash prize. You need three, four and five scatter symbols to get 10, 20 and 30 free spins in that order. In my experience playing Wild Guns, it took quite some time for three scatters to appear on the reels on the same spin, but it is worth the wait because of the multiplier wilds.
Additionally, five scatters bring a cash prize of 20x your bet, however, winning outcomes for this symbol begins with it appearing in two positions, anywhere on the reels.
This is a standard feature in most slots by Wazdan. Every win outcome in the base game can be gambled for a chance to double the amount for each right guess. To start the gamble game, press the 2x button next to the spin button and play a game of guessing. Shooting the right window means taking out the bad guy and pocketing his loot.
One of the most encouraging details about Wild Guns is that the game can make quite decent payouts with only two matching symbols. The symbols that have this ability are the pistols and the gold bars, paying 1x your bet, while the scatter and the wild can pay 2x.
I was pleasantly surprised to see that there are more high-paying symbols on the paytable compared to only four royal cards, which are the minor symbols.
Those in the medium and high-paying category are the TNT box, sheriff’s star, pistols, horseshoe, a whiskey bottle and gold bars. And here are few notable outcomes that can shake out from any spin: three stars pay 3x, three gold bars pay 6x, five pistols pay an amazing 100x, and so on.
Also, unlike so many other online slots, the minor symbols do actually return the wager when you score four symbols on a payline. Four jacks and queens pay 1x and four kings and aces can pay 5x your bet.
Winning an instant jackpot prize is possible by landing five wild symbols on a payline, for a payout of 200x your bet. Five gold bars on a payline pay another amazing prize of 150x your bet.
The game takes bets that start with 10p per spin, while the maximum wager is $100.00. The theoretical return to player (RTP) is 96.34% and the variance is selectable between low, standard and high.
I have a generally positive impression of this game. It’s amazing that wins with two symbols can return your wager, or pay more because this can sustain your balance if you are in it for the long haul.
Another positive is the wild, which pays double on any winning outcome, and the game seems to be generous with this symbol. On the other hand, I can’t say the same regarding the scatter. You may see one or two appear once in every six or seven spins, but getting three seems to be a game of patience. It may be worth it in the end.
