Wanted Outlaws is a Wild West themed slot game from Microgaming, which has some attractive features and mechanisms to really liven up the gameplay.
Given the theme, it is no surprise that this game is set in a dusty old town which looks straight out of the classic Western movies. There is an appropriate soundtrack as well in the form of country-themed music. You will see various buildings on either side of the street, with the reels in the centre. The reels are wooden and are set on a wooden platform as well.
This game has five reels, five rows and 3,125 ways to win. It uses the Nobleways engine, and wins are generated by landing matching symbols on adjacent reels, starting from the 1st reel. The betting range for the game is from $/€/£0.10 up to $/€/£100 per spin. Some of the symbols will pay out for just two in combination, but most need at least three to deliver a win.
The standard A to 10 royals are in a classic Wild West font that you will have seen multiple times, while the themed symbols include wanted posters, horseshoes and rope, cowboy boots, double pistols, Stetson gloves and the sheriff as well. The pair of pistols is the most valuable symbol, paying out 20x of your stake for five symbols in combination. The sheriff is the game’s Wild, and only shows up in the free spins round. The sheriff’s badge is the game’s Scatter symbol and can help trigger the free spins round.
Landing at least three of the Scatters will trigger the free spins feature. You receive 10, 15 or 25 free spins for landing 3, 4 or 5 Scatters respectively. The Wild can also show up on the reels during this round, and can replace all the standard symbols. However, it can only land on the middle three reels.
The Wanted Poster feature can only be activated during the free spins round. There are three different posters, each with a different multiplier value:
If you land a Wild, the sheriff will collect the value of all the bounty posters as a prize, and things get even more interesting if you land more than one Wild, as each wild collects all the bounty values. Thus, each additional Wild can double or even triple your win, making this a huge opportunity for big wins. The Wanted posters also land stacked to increase your chances of winning.
This is a high volatility slot game with an RTP of 96.41%
While the base game may seem standard here, this offering from Microgaming really comes to life in the bonus rounds. The Wild West theme provides a lot of fun, and overall, this game is definitely one to try out.
