The One-Armed Bandit Slot from Swedish slot supremos Yggdrasil Gaming is an exciting, feature-packed Western epic played out in a desert settlement across a standard 5×3 format with 20 Paylines.
A dusty canyon forms the background to the game, as a sign swings in the breeze. The setting also incorporates a sleepy Wild West town – at least it is until the outlaws ride in. Your mission is to join forces with the new sheriff to help hound the gang of gun-wielding desperados right out of town!
How to play
Spin away from just 10p a pop up to a pretty modest £50 maximum, on mobile devices and PC.
As usual, the card suits are the less valuable symbols, and they have the appearance of having been printed on to stitched leather.
The higher payers are things no self-respecting cowboy would be without, from hip flasks and spurs to pistols and hats. The guns give you the best shot at a bigger prize, awarding 80x stake for five on a single line.
One-Armed Bandit Slot special features
The Sheriff’s badge serves as your Wild, as ever replacing all other icons apart from the Scatter, as represented by a masked desperado, to help you form a win.
Land a Scatter at any point in the main game and you’re in line for a respin. But before that kicks in, the Scatter becomes Wild on that particular reel for as long as the respin lasts.
During the respin, 5x multiplier Wilds can rock up. What’s more, the respins continue until the Scatters stop showing up on the reels.
This activates once you scoop a Scatter on each of the five reels, with a frequency of around every 100 spins or so. It’s the ultimate showdown in which the sheriff takes on each gang leader head to head!
Kick off with 10 free whirls and a 5x multiplier, while any respins that have not been played previously become additional freebies here.
What’s more, every other Scatter which lands while you’re playing this round increases the multiplier by a factor of one. Indeed, it can climb up to 20x. Land more bonus symbols here and look forward to more free spins. Land two and your multiplier goes up by five; another two and an additional 10x multiplier applies.
With no progressive jackpot in this game, the maximum win in One-Armed Bandit Slot is a whopping 472,000 coins.
Return to Player (RTP)
This is a pretty high-variance offering, with a decent RTP or Return to Player of 96.3%. Thanks to the multipliers and respins, you could enjoy some hefty hauls, but, equally, may have to expect some lengthy dry spells in-between times.
Cowboy Stetsons off to Yggdrasil for what they have done here! As ever, the visuals are amazing, with some splendid animations, while the respins feature is also highly attractive. So this one should keep you playing and interested. You’ll particularly enjoy it if you love all things Wild West, and games that don’t stint on the shooting.
No wonder one reviewer described it as one of the best efforts yet from Yggdrasil. So saddle up, kick up some dust and see what you reckon!
