Wild West Gold Slot Review

Join a band of cowboy bandits in Wild West Gold, a volatile 5 reel, 40 payline slot from Pragmatic Play. In our Wild West Gold review, you’ll learn about multiplier wilds that can land in the base game and boost payouts by 2x, 3x or 5x.

Trigger the bonus round and you’ll receive free spins. Land a multiplier wild during these spins and it locks in position for the rest of the round. Look out too overlay sheriff’s badges which can deliver re-triggers and up to 20 more free spins. Read on to find out what else these sharpshooting gunslingers can offer.

Bonus Features in Wild West Gold

The Wild West Gold slot isn’t overloaded with extras. There’s more than enough going on to keep things interesting though. It benefits from wild multipliers up to 5x and a free spins feature where wilds are sticky.

Multiplier Wilds feature

The silver sheriff’s badge is the game’s wild. This can land on the middle 3 reels only. Each wild that lands comes with a multiplier attached. If the wild forms part of a winning combination, the payout will be boosted by a 2x, 3x or 5x multiplier – this is known as the Multiplier Wilds feature.

If you land more than 1 multiplier wild in the same winning line, the multiplier values are added together. For example, a winner that includes 2x, 3x and 5x multipliers would rocket by 10x.

Free Spins feature

The canyon sunset scene is the scatter symbol. Land this on reels 1, 3 and 5 on the same spin to activate the game’s Free Spins feature. Your reward is 8 free spins. Helping your winning chances here are sticky wilds. Just like in the base game, they can hit on reels 2, 3 and 4 only. Here though, they lock in position for any free spins you have remaining.

These wilds also come with the usual multiplier boosts attached. Once again, if you land more than 1 multiplier wild, the values are added together to offer an even bigger payout boost.

Joining the action here is the gold sheriff’s badge. This overlay symbol can appear anywhere on the reels including on top of the sticky wilds. Land 2 or more of these on the same spin for a re-trigger:

2 sheriff's badges 4 extra free spins
3 sheriff's badges 8 extra free spins
4 sheriff's badges 12 extra free spins
5 sheriff's badges 20 extra free spins

The free spins also come with a prize guarantee. If you win less than 10x your total stake, your payout will be boosted so that it reaches 10x.

Wild West Gold Slot RTP, Details & Wager Limits

Fans of volatile action won’t be disappointed with what they find in Wild West Gold. This is a high variance slot. On a scale out of 5, its most definitely a 5. Expect lengthy spells as dry as the Arizona desert. If the wild multipliers work their magic during the Free Spins feature, the coins can quickly flow though.

The maximum payout is 6,750 x stake per spin or free spin. The most you can win in the Free Spins feature as a whole is 10,000 x your stake. The RTP here is 96.51% which is very reasonable and compares well with many competitor slots. Stake levels in Wild West Gold start at 20p, rising to a maximum of £100 per spin.

Like most slots in the Pragmatic Play catalogue you’ll have plenty of options when it comes to autoplay. You can set between 10 and 100 spins and vary the pace by choosing standard, quick or turbo spin mode. You can also set win and loss limits. There’s a stop on hitting the feature option too. This is all very straightforward to do. If you want to quicken the pace manually, just hold down the space bar for turbo spins.

Wild West Gold Theme - Audio and Design Features - classic Wild West setting

The Wild West theme is very nicely realized here. The setting is a dusty, one horse town made up of wooden buildings and a saloon.

On the reels you’ll find A to 10 symbols in a classic Wild West font. They’re joined by pistols, sacks of gold, 3 members of an outlaw gang and the sheriff. The sheriff pays 1.5, 5 or 20 x your total stake if you land 3, 4 or 5 on a payline.

The symbols are well drawn and fit the theme. So too does the honky tonk-style backing track. This really revs up during the Free Spins feature where the action shifts from day to night.

Pragmatic Play’s simple game interface is among the best around. It’s very easy to alter stake levels, set autoplay or check what’s what by opening up the paytable. The settings buttons also allows you to turn off the ambient noise and/or the backing track if you wish.

Pragmatic Play has created specially optimized versions of Wild West Gold for mobile and tablet devices. They work well. The comic book-style visuals are crisp, clear and easy to differentiate. The simple gameplay is also a nice fit. No complaints here.

Wild West Gold Review Summary - ride to riches

We found plenty to enjoy in the Wild West Gold slot. The simple visuals do the job nicely, backed by a catchy backing track. The wild multipliers pep up the base game but it’s the free spins that things can really start to move courtesy of the sticky wild multipliers.

Be warned though, this is a high variance slot. You could quickly blast through your bankroll here. If the multipliers work their magic though, look out. The cowboy theme has fallen out of favour with cinema lovers. It remains a popular genre with slots players and with releases like Wild West Gold it’s easy to see why.

If you want more Wild West action, there’s no better slot than Dead or Alive II (by NetEnt) as you can a whopping 111,111 x stake from 1 of the free spins features.
