Something that we like is the maximum win amount, being 50,000x your bet. Or, if you want specifics, £250,000.00. The great thing here is that wagering really high to get respectable returns on your wagers isn’t strictly necessary, as the high volatility and high win multipliers mean wins should come at decent sizes. The wagering window is also really wide, with a minimum bet limit of 10p and a maximum bet limit of £100. While we’ve suggested going big to win big isn’t the only route to go, it goes without saying that bets around the minimum required area aren’t exactly going to reward you with the bounty you can be hunting. The Western theme isn’t too bad, and while we’ve definitely seen better animations, there is a good selection of characters to make it all quite entertaining. We’re also happy to say that all players are accommodated regardless of their device preference, with mobile, tablet and desktop all offering themselves up for some fabulous King of the West action.
Some themes offer loads of possibilities when it comes to creating symbols for the online slot machines using them. The western theme is one of these, and unlike the Egyptian, Irish and Asian usually sees studios do something a little different from others. While the differences in King of the West aren’t vastly different to what we’ve seen before, there are a selection of characters that could be called unique.
The symbols that are very familiar and act as the lower value icons are playing cards 10, J and Q. The values then increase with playing cards K and A. We then start getting to symbols falling in with the Western theme of King of the West and are a revolver, a bottle of scotch, a wagon and a bag full of gold coins.
There are quite a few extra symbols in King of the West, some of which don’t actually fall on the five reels and three rows. But instead, appear in the horizontal reel above the vertical reels. The more conventional bonus symbols include the wild, which acts as any regular icon in the slot to make up winning lines, as well as the Free Games symbol, which is the scatter. More symbols that fall on the five reels are the Bounty Hunter, the mystery icon and a symbol that has ‘Collect All’ in the middle of a Sheriff’s badge.
Let’s first explain how the horizontal reel at the top will benefit you. On each spin, this reel will see all the symbols populated on it move one position to the right. The symbols on this reel include a bunch of outlaws, all of which have a cash number attached to them. You’ll also have smaller cash prizes as well as the Collect All and Free Games symbols appearing in this reel. The Bounty Hunter symbol appears in the standard five reels, and when this symbol lands the reward in the horizontal reel that is directly above the Bounty Hunter will be awarded to you. This means that you can also trigger the free games and collect all prizes in the horizontal reel should the Bounty Hunter fall on the reel that has those symbols directly above.
By landing the Bounty Hunter below a Free Game icon in the top reel, you’ll have triggered the free spins, at which point a revolver’s chamber opens up with six different free spin numbers. You’ll then spin the chamber to see which number of free spins will be loaded into the gun for you to spin. The most spins possible are 20.
The bandits that appear in the top reel carry bigger cash prizes that the Bounty Hunter can collect for you in the free spins. You’ll also see that a symbol appears in the top reel as Extra Spins, and if the Bounty Hunter appears below this icon, then more free spins will be added to the overall number of spins.
Play King of the West Slot
Explaining the full extent of the Bounty Hunter symbol and the prizes it collects for you from the top reel isn’t very easy, as there’s quite a bit going on there with different symbols appearing in the free spins to the base game. The great news is that you’ll need to try King of the West out for yourself. We can assure all players that the slot has various ways for you to win cash, with many of the cash amounts the Bounty Hunter collecting really putting the great train robbery of the yonder years looking like small fry.
