Western Gold Megaways by iSoftBet is an action-packed slot set in the Wild Wild West.
The tall six reels sit in the window of a Western saloon, surrounded by a dusty frontier town. Sounds of pistols and horses echo over the fitting soundtrack, enhancing the experience. Among the symbols are typical western items such as horseshoes, revolvers, flasks, and a cowboy hat. The usual fill-in symbols in the form of card denominations are the lower-paying symbols, designed to fit the concept.
Western Gold Megaways is a mid-high volatility slot, rated 7/10 by the developer. The RTP is 95.98%, which is not that great, to be completely honest. However, you can increase it to 97% with the Bonus Buy feature. The maximum potential win is 12,000x your stake.
Every time you land a win, the Cascade feature triggers, removing the winning symbols as the new ones cascade down to fill the gaps. Sheriff’s badge is a Scatter, and landing five or more will trigger three Western Gold Cash Respins. Respins begin with the triggering scatters bolted in position, and the number of Megaways remains the same. During the respins, only Scatters can land, and they will show a bet Multiplier or a Jackpot. The Jackpot Badges can show a Mini, Major, or a Mega Jackpot, worth 10x, 25x, or 50x the bet. Any Scatter that lands will stick and reset the respins counter to 3. If you run out of spins or fill all the positions, all values are added up and paid out.
For the fair price of 50x your bet, you can activate the Bonus Buy feature and head straight to the Western Gold Cash Respins with 5 Scatters.
You might find this game familiar, and you would be right to think so. Western Gold Megaways is very much a reskin of Aztec Gold Megaways, with maths mellowed down and a Bonus Buy feature added. However, this is still an enjoyable game as a stand-alone, and the applied tweaks may payout handsomely to some of us.
