Lone Star Jackpots Theme/Symbols

The Lone Star Jackpots slot looks rather good – set in the Wild West, you’ll see a beautiful canyon in the backdrop. With an upbeat Western soundtrack, symbols include A, K, Q, J and 10 royals – you’ll also see various animals on the reels such as deer, mountain lions, wolves, falcons and buffalo.

The buffalo pays 1, 3 or 8 times your total stake for 3, 4 or 5 in combination. There’s also a cactus wild symbol which replaces all other symbols bar the scatter and bonus symbol – it appears stacked on reels 2 and 4 only. Being a 243 ways to win slot, winning combinations are forming by getting 3 or more of the same symbols on adjacent reels in any position beginning from reel 1.

Lone Star Jackpot Wheel feature

Keep an eye out for the cactus wild symbol – when it appears stacked on reels 2 or 4, you will trigger the Lone Star Jackpot Wheel feature. Here, you spin the chamber of a revolver where you will win 1 of 4 fixed jackpots:

  • Mini Jackpot: 20 x stake
  • Minor Jackpot: 30 x stake
  • Major Jackpot: 50 x stake
  • Grand Jackpot: 200 x stake

You could also gain entry to the Free Games feature.

Free Games feature

If you enter the Free Games feature, you will receive 10 free spins with a 2x multiplier. The other way in is by landing 3 bonus coin symbols on reels 1, 3 and 5 simultaneously.

Lone Star Jackpots feature

Finally, the game comes with a Lone Star Jackpots feature – this is played when you see 5 or more star bonus symbols appearing. Beginning with 3 bonus spins, each star bonus symbol appearing during the bonus spins will reset the number of bonus spins to 3.

It’s a streak respin feature basically – all prizes displayed at the end of your bonus spins are then paid out. Each star will come with a cash prize of up to 15 times your stake as well as the Mini, Minor or Major Jackpot. If you fill all positions on the screen with star bonus symbols, you’ll win the Grand Jackpot.

Lone Star Jackpots verdict

The Lone Star Jackpots slot does look particularly good for a Novomatic game. I like the fact you can win the fixed jackpots in 2 different ways. However, the payouts are pretty low with the Grand Jackpot offering just 50 times your stake. Medium variance, the best opportunities come from the Free Games feature.

With all wins subject to a 2x multiplier, the most you can win on each free spin is 500 x stake. Lone Star Jackpots is an entertaining slot game but doesn’t offer big enough potential payouts to justify coming back to it – I would much rather play NetEnt’s Dead or Alive II slot which comes with huge potential wins of up to 111,111.11 x stake!
