Showdown Saloon is a 5 reel, 15 payline slot from Microgaming that can be played from 20p to £100 a spin on all devices including smartphones and tablets. You get to head back to the Old west for a stacking symbol showdown as you’ll benefit from mystery stacks, re-spins and free spins.
Visually, Showdown Saloon takes its inspiration for the Old Wild West and sees poker cards and bullets in the backdrop. Symbols on the reels include A, K, Q, J and 10 royals as well as guns, poker chips, dice and whiskey. The poker card hand is the wild and replaces all symbols bar the free spin symbol.
Showdown Saloon comes with a Mystery Stacks feature as every reel has a stack of Mystery Symbols – on each spin, 1 single symbol will replace the stack of Mystery Symbols on every reel. Furthermore, the same symbol will replace the 2 leftmost Mystery Stacks which can lead to bigger wins – this includes the Free Spin symbol.
If you manage to land matching full symbol stacks, you’ll trigger the Re-Spin feature – this must occur on reels 2 to 4. The triggering stacks then lock in position with the other reels re-spinning. On every re-spin, the mystery stacks change to match the symbols in the triggering stacks for bigger wins. This means you can benefit from 5 matching full stacks!
The final extra is the Free Spins feature which is played when you get 3 or more stacks starting with reel 1 – 3, 4 or 5 stacks will give you 5, 10 or 15 free spins as well as 1, 2 or 3 times your stake respectively. The Re-Spin feature also comes into play here for even more free spins effectively.
Showdown Saloon looks decent and has the potential to dish out rewards of 750 times your stake if you get on a reel in the Re-Spin feature. It’s very similar, in terms of gameplay, to Romanov Riches but has a free spins feature which makes it better. It’s highly volatile so you need to tread carefully.
