Holster up your pistol and set out on a gunslinging adventure in Fandango’s a Wild West-themed slot from Pragmatic Play. It’s a 5 reel, 15 payline game that comes with a pick me round as well as a bonus feature that awards up to 80 free spins. Take aim from between 15p and £75 per spin.
The visuals in Fandango’s have a strong feel of the American West and are rather well done. The plain black reels include lower value bullets, horseshoes, Stetsons and the chamber of a pistol. More lucrative are the cactus, cowboy boots and Native American.
Most rewarding of all is the pair of pistols – you’ll get a payout of a single coin every time one of these lands – land 2, 3, 4 or 5 on a payline for 10, 100, 1,000 or a whopping 10,000 coins. The sheriff’s badge is the wild – it offers no pays but does substitute for everything apart from the scatter and bonus symbols.
Land 3 of the Wanted poster and you’ll trigger the Bonus feature – you’ll be taken to a classic Wild West saloon where you’ll be able to practise your sharp-shooting. Pick from 1 of the 3 boxes which will determine how many bullets you’ll receive. Then take aim at the objects behind the bar. If you’re on target, you’ll win cash prizes – awards of between 9 and 825 coins can be won here.
Fandango’s also comes with a Free Spins feature – to trigger it, you’ll need to land 3 or more of the dynamite symbol which is the scatter. Up to 40 free spins are on offer here. You can land the bar room shoot-out feature from the free spins as well as re-triggering extra rounds of free spins.
Fandango’s is a nicely crafted slot – the spinning of the reels sounds like the crack of a gunshot and the bonus round come with a classic country and western backing track. The imagery isn’t as sophisticated as what’s on offer in some titles but works perfectly well. It’s bright, clear and sharp and does the job.
We managed to land both features at regular intervals so this slot isn’t particularly dangerous for your bankroll – we’d put the variance in the low to medium range.
There’s nothing flashy on offer but we enjoyed this trip to Fandango’s – it looks and sounds good and provides some classic features. For simple, sharp-shooting action, you won’t go far wrong. I also recommend you try NetEnt’s Wild Wild West: The Great Train Heist.
