Wild West Featured In Online Slots


Western themed online slots are amongst the most popular. They have iconic good guys and bad guys with side characters like the town sheriff and the saloon girl. There is scope for win animations and thematic bonus games. Each leading online software provider has at least one western themed video slot in its portfolio. This article picks out and recommends three such slot machines from different software providers.

One of the best western themed online slots from Microgaming is titled Sunset Showdown with the reels set in the background of an orange sky. You can play it at online casinos like Spin Palace, Platinum Play and All Slots. The symbols on the reels are typical western genre icons such as pistols, cash bag, hat, boots and a cowboy. One of the defining features of Sunset Showdown is that the lead character is the cowgirl. The cowgirl is the wild symbol with a 2x multiplier property and it also awards the highest line payouts. The sunset showdown takes place in the Baddy Feature bonus game on the second screen. The cowgirl strides down the main street shooting the outlaws. You win random bonus credits for each bad guy shot.

Western Wildness is the slot game from Rival Gaming, which can be played at online casinos like Bovada Casino. The comic design of the symbols brings a bit of humour to the proceedings. The online slot game loads with an introductory clip that shows the cowboy, cowgirl and the masked bandit demonstrating their shooting skills. The other symbols on the reels are cowboy boots, a bag of cash, a sheriff's badge, a box of bullets, a horse shoe and a shotgun. The bonus game on the second screen is thematic and interactive. You face two rows of bottles and are given six bullets. Your aim is to break as many bottles as you can. You win bonus credits for each bottle that you hit.

Wanted Dead or Alive is the typically western title for the video slot from Playtech. It is live at online casinos like Mansion Casino and Omni Casino. The three wanted outlaws are the central characters and are differentiated on the basis of beard, moustache and mask. Other high paying symbols are cash sack, dynamite sticks and revolver. In the bonus game on the second screen you have to first select one of the bandits and then shoot him down in the street. The number of shots taken by you determines the bonus win.
