Bonus Features and Games in Wild West Zone

The gameplay in the Wild West Zone slot offers something a little different from the norm courtesy of the Dynamic Ways engine. Other highlights include re-spins and free spins with expanding multipliers.

Dynamic Ways feature

The base game action plays out on a 5-reel machine. The number of symbols that are live on each reel varies with each spin depending on whether they’re in the highlighted Dynamic Zone. This varies between 3 and 5. It has an impact on the number of ways to win which can range from a minimum of 243 but can reach 3,125. Winning combinations are formed by landing matching symbols on adjoining reels. This is known as the Dynamic Ways feature.

Most Wanted Respins feature

This Most Wanted Respins feature is triggered if you land a wild in the Dynamic Zone but you don’t manage to create a winner. The wild is held and a respin is awarded and a multiplier increases by 1x. If another wild lands it too is held.

The respins keep on coming until a new winning combination is formed. A final payout is made, complete with the active multiplier.

Something for Nothing Multiplier feature

Land Free Spins symbols (the stagecoach) on reels 1 and 3 but miss out on the third and you’ll receive a consolation prize. The multiplier to the side of the reels increases by 1x when you do go on to trigger the free spins round.

Canyon Heist Free Spins Bonus feature

Wild West Zone slot Canyon Heist Free Spins Bonus feature

The Canyon Heist Free Spins Bonus feature is triggered by landing scatters in the Dynamic Zone on reels 1, 3 and 5 on the same spin. Your reward is 8 free spins. These come with plenty of extras too. The round begins with any multiplier you carried over from the triggering base game spin.

The action plays out on an expanded 6-reel machine. The number of symbols on each reel varies too. Instead of between 3 and 5 as in the base game, you’ll have between 5 and 7 symbols on each reel. This increases the ways to win to between 15,625 and 117,649.

Each time you land the Most Wanted Respins or the Something For Nothing features during the free spins, the multiplier increases by 1x. Re-triggers are possible too. Landing scatters on reels 2, 4 and 6 will add another 8 free spins to your total.

Wild West Zone Slot RTP, Details & Wager Limits

Wild West slot begins with 5 reels. Each reel will showcase between 3 and 5 symbols giving you as little as 243 ways to win to as much as 3,125 ways to win. A win is created when you get identical symbols on adjacent reels, beginning from reel 1.

You can play the Wild West Zone slot from between 10p and £20 per spin. Adjust your bet level by clicking on the pile of coins in the bottom left-hand corner of the screen. You can set up between 5 and 100 autoplay spins. You can also create win and loss limits as required.

The RTP is 95.82% which is a little on the low side. Wild West Zone is a volatile slot and the variance is high. Land a perfect combination of symbols and multipliers and the maximum payout is an impressive 7,794x your stake.

Wild West Zone Theme – Audio and Design Features – comic book recreation of a dusty frontier town

Wild West Zone slot base game

The sound and visuals in Wild West Zone are very good. A dusty town that you’d see in a classic Western movie forms the backdrop to the reels.

There you’ll find A to 10 royals, cowboy boots with spurs, a bottle of bourbon, a revolver and sticks of dynamite. The best standard symbol is the sheriff’s badge. Land 3, 4, 5 or 6 in combination for an award of 0.75, 1.25, 2 or 5x your stake. The sharp-shooter is the wild. It doesn’t offer any payouts but does replace all the standard symbols.

There’s a comic book feel to the visuals which are nicely done. You’ll hear a banjo-heavy backing track twanging away while you spin which is a good match. Overall, it delivers plenty of atmosphere. As you’d expect, you can play Wild West Zone on desktop, mobile and tablet devices as standard.

Wild West Zone Review Summary – take aim at this unusual high variance slot

The Dynamic Ways game engine offers similar gameplay to what you’d find in a Megaways slot. This certainly keeps things ticking over in the base game. It’s the 2nd Dynamic Ways slot from Leander Games following Gem Zone.

The features stack up pretty well too. The respins can pep up the base game but it’s the Canyon Heist Free Spins Bonus feature where the best opportunities arise, especially if you manage to carry over a healthy starting multiplier and quickly get that moving upwards.

We liked Wild West Zones. It’s not the most polished slot you’ll see as far as imagery goes but the comic book design and banjo backing track create plenty of atmosphere. Add that to the impressive free spins round and we’re happy enough to take a trip to the Wild West Zone. If you want more Western action, NetEnt's Dead or Alive II is recommended and offers 111,111 x stake wins.
