Pistols at the Ready
With your trusty horse tied up outside, spurs on your boots and the safety catch taken off your pistol, you’ll feel every inch the cowboy as you stride into town. The reels are large and set within a wooden town building, with the doors blasted wide open to reveal the contents within.
There’s not much around to see other than the blue sky overhead so all the attention is on the array of Western-themed symbols you’ll see in front of you. Everything from cactus to wanted posters, and even the skeletons of long-departed animals can be found on the reels in this game which embodies the much-loved Wild West.
This excursion into the Wild West features 5 reels spread right across the screen, making it easy to see at a glance what’s been spun. With a standard 5×3 layout there’s a maximum of 9 paylines but this is easy to adjust using the button on the main screen. You can also set the amount you want to bet with between one and five credits per line. If you’re playing for real cash rather than in the demo mode, you might want to be more specific about how much each credit is worth. In the end, you can bet anwhere from 0.18 to 23.00.
If you feel like you need more information to be able to decide how to play, then click over to the paytable to see the prizes you could win. You’ll need between two and three symbols moving from left to right on consecutive reels in order to get a payout. The top prize is 10,000 which you could get if you land five of the wild symbol. The RTP is unknown but there’s a medium volatility attached to this game.
Shoot ‘Em Up
It wouldn’t be a Wild West feature without a shoot ‘em up and Reel Outlaws obliges courtesy of the bonus game. Land three bonus symbols on the reels and you’ll unlock the hidden bonus game, which is held on a separate screen. You’ll have six whiskey bottles in front of you and your job is to fire your gun at them. Each contains a prize and for each one you reveal, you’ll get to keep it. The bonus ends once the “collect” sign is found.
There are other extras too, which include a wild and a scatter. The wild will stand in for other symbols on the reels to make up a winning combination while the scatter pays out even if not on a payline and attracts a multiplier too.
Spurred on for More
If you’ve enjoyed Reel Outlaws and aren’t quite ready to take off those spurs just yet, you can play one of the other Wild West themed games on the market. The simply titled Wild West from NextGen Gaming is another slot which takes players to the land of cowboys and whiskey. With 10 paylines and 5 reels, this game is also packed with features including a bonus play too.
For a more authentic casino play but staying with the Wild West, there’s Dirty Jack from Pariplay. With one payline and just three reels, it’s a pared down play for any potential cowboys out there.
