Popular iGaming development studio iSoftBet are certainly firing on all cylinders. Just a month ago the company’s slot Macau High Roller went live, and was positively met. Now they are following up that success with an even more intriguing slot creation; Western Gold Megaways.
As the name suggests, the 6 reel title is based in the dusty, adventure soaked landscapes of the old west. Only, of course, this old west has the potential to payout in a big way.
In terms of presentation Western Gold Megaways is decent, with appropriate symbol designs, interesting special effects, and a host of the expected Wild West themed sound effects. The graphics will probably not be winning any awards, but get the job done.
What most players are really interested in is a shot at the jackpot payouts that lie in wait, which are up for grabs for those lucky enough to match Sheriff Badge Scatters.
Western Gold Megaways is an interesting combination of a Megaways system and Cascading Reels. This means that there are no spinning reels, but instead the increasingly popular system that involves symbols falling in via the top of the screen and stacking. When symbols match they disappear, allowing new symbols to fall in and occupy the empty space.
With the Megaways system in play, chances to win can vary drastically. With the Max Megaways Modifier, which kicks in randomly, 117,649 potential ways to win can potentially activate. This not only means that wins are more likely, but that additional cascading chained wins may also occur.
All this already makes for a fun slots experience, but the fun really gets going when Cash Respins are triggered, which hold the ticket to the biggest payouts in the game.
During Western Gold Megaways Cash Respins, a shot is granted at winning a jackpot. The jackpots range between Mini, Major and Mega, with the Mega being a whopping 50x the original wager.
In order for Cash Respins to trigger, 5 Sheriff Badge symbols must land on the reels. The screen will then change to a grid, with gold Sheriff Badges now populating the reels. 3 Spins are then initially granted, indicated by the revolving chambers of a 6 shooter on the left of the grid.
The spins will then play out, with the goal being to gather as many badges as possible. Each symbol comes with an attached multiplier, which counts towards the jackpots seen on the right of the reels.
Western Gold Megaways is a fun, interesting slot that is sure to delight fans of the old west. It is live now, and sure to already be gathering up a firm fan base.
