The One Armed Bandit is powered by Yggdrasil Gaming and has 5 reels and 20 paylines. Playable from 10p to £50 a spin on all devices, you head to the Wild West where you team up with the bounty hunter to drive some gun-toting desperados out of town. It comes with respins where 5x Multiplier Wilds can lead – there’s also a Free Spins feature where multipliers can reach up to 20x for huge potential payouts.
Visually, The One Armed Bandit is superb – as are all Yggdrasil Gaming slots. Set in the deserts of the Wild West, symbols on the reels include hearts, spades, clubs and diamonds (low value symbols) as well as 4 high value symbols – they include whiskey flasks, cowboy hats, pistols and cowboy boot spurs. The sheriff’s badge is the wild symbol which replaces all regular symbols (all bar the scatter basically).
Look out for the scatter – this is represented by gun-toting desperados. When 1 appears, the Respins feature is triggered with 1 respin for each scatter (up to 4 respins). The scatter then transforms into a wild symbol and gives you a respin with wilds on that reel. During the respin, 5x multiplier wilds can land – the respins keep on coming until the scatters stop falling on the reels.
If you manage to land a scatter on all 5 reels, you will trigger the Free Spins feature and begin the ultimate showdown where the sheriff goes face to face with each gang leader. With 10 free spins and a 5x multiplier awarded, any respins not used in the Respins feature will become extra free spins.
Every second scatter landing during the free spins will increase the multiplier by 1 – it can reach as high as 20x! Look out for bonus symbols as these will give you 1 additional free spin each time they appear – if you land 2 bonus symbols, the multiplier is increase by 5 – 2 more and an extra 10x multiplier is added.
The One Armed Bandit is a superbly designed slot by Yggdrasil Gaming and it has the bonus features to match – you can win big in the base game with the 5x multiplier wilds but it’s all about the Free Spins feature where the multipliers just go crazy.
Highly volatile, you can win a whopping 9,440 times your total stake with the maximum multipliers! The One Armed Bandit is highly recommend and 1 of Yggdrasil Gaming’s best slots to date. If you want to venture to the Wild West, I also suggest you try NetEnt’s Dead or Alive II which is excellent (and offers bigger wins!).
