The Deadwood RTP is 96.03%. It’s actually 96.02% but using the Nolimit Bonus feature increases it slightly. Being a high variance slot, wins will be small more often than not.

The max win is 13,950 x your stake which can be achieved with the unlimited win multiplier in the Gunslinger Spins feature. Nolimit City classed the variance as extreme (10/10). The hit frequency is 40.17% with 4 wins every 10 spins on average.

Deadwood Theme - Audio & Design features - gunslingers are back in this volatile showdown

Deadwood slot - base game

The Deadwood online slot has a Wild West theme and is the sequel to the Tombstone slot (by Nolimit City). With superb high definition graphics, the soundtrack is gentle to begin with.

With a dusty Western street in the backdrop, you head to the notorious town of Deadwood. It’s what you’d expect from a slot game with this theme. If you click anywhere on the screen, bullet holes appear which is a pretty nice touch.

Symbols include stylised A, K, Q, J and 10 royals. You’ll also see shotguns, whiskey bottles, money safes, gold pocket watches and gold bullion bars. The latter pays 0.25, 0.75 or 3. 75 times your stake for 3, 4 or 5 in combination. The Hunter wilds are represented by bounty hunters which substitute for all symbols bar the sheriff badge and scatter symbols.

Produced in HTML5, there’s a Deadwood mobile slot. Actually, it can be played on desktop and tablet devices as standard. The high quality graphics and animations work well even on smartphone screens.

Bonus Features in Deadwood

The Deadwood slot has plenty of bonus features. You have the Hunter xNudge Wild feature which sees the bounty hunter wilds nudge to become fully visible and increase the multiplier for each nudge. The sheriff badges also trigger the Shoot Out feature where low value symbols become wilds. Then there’s 3 free spins features. One of them sees the Hunter xNudge Wild feature trigger on every free spin with the Gunslinger Spins feature sees the multiplier increase infinitely. The best is the Shoot Out Free Spins feature where sheriff badges are locked so the Shoot Out feature applies on each free spin.

Hunter xNudge Wild feature

There are 3 bounty hunters in the Deadwood slot. Appearing 4-rows high, they wilds exist on reels 2, 3 and 4. When they appear, they will always nudge to become fully visible. With every step the Hunter wild nudges, the win multiplier increases by 1.

Shoot Out feature

2 x Free Spins features

Deadwood slot - Free Spins features

The most important symbol is the scatter. 3 of them appearing simultaneously will give you the choice of 2 free spins features with 8 free spins in each.

  • Hunter Spins feature: with 8 hunter spins awarded, at least 1 Hunter wild is guaranteed to land on every free spin. This then triggers the Hunter xNudge Wild feature with multipliers. Sheriff badges can also land with each one adding 1 more free spin to your tally.
  • Gunslinger Spins feature: with 8 gunslinger spins awarded, this is a more volatile option. You challenge the gunslingers head on and go for the unlimited win multiplier that remains for the whole feature. Any Hunter wild symbol landing will activate the unlimited win multiplier. Any sheriff badge landing will give you 1 additional free spins each time.

Shoot Out Free Spins feature

The Shoot Out Free Spins feature is triggered in 3 ways:

  • Sheriff badges landing on reels 1 and 5 during the Hunter Spins feature
  • Sheriff badges landing on reels 1 and 5 during the Gunslinger Spins feature
  • 3 scatters plus sheriff badges on reels 1 and 5 during a base game spin

This will give you 10 free spins in the mode you choose: the Shoot Out Gunslinger Spins or Shoot Out Hunter Spins. Once in, sheriff badges are locked in position which then triggers the Shoot Out feature on every free spin. This means all low value symbols act as wilds on the 3 middle reels.

Nolimit Bonus feature

Unavailable to UK players, you buy your way into the 2 free spins feature or the Shoot Out Free Spins feature:

  • Hunter Spins or Gunslinger Spins features: 71 x stake
  • Shoot Out Free Spins feature: 750 x stake

Deadwood Review Summary – superb from Nolimit City once again

The Tombstone slot was a popular game. Nolimit City has upped their game with Deadwood as this is bigger and better in many ways. It has more bonus feature and the max win has increased (from 11,456 x stake to 13,950 x stake). Deadwood is also much more volatile so will appeal to hardcore slot players.

If you want more Wild West action, you should try the prequel, Tombstone, which is also excellent.
