Showdown Saloon Online Slot Machine
Western themed slots have been popular for a few years and Microgaming is gambling that they will continue to be with this 2018 offering, the Showdown Saloon online slot machine game. Can you resist a nostalgic trip back to the lawless Wild West of gunslingers, saloons, and poker?
Showdown Saloon Slots Description
The graphics are understated, but effective. The background represents a poker table and the slot’s reels are enhanced by an ornate mirror frame adorned with the slot’s name and a brace of pistols. The symbols include the usual lower paying A, K, Q, J, and 10 icons. The other icons, from lowest to highest, are a pair of dice, whiskey bottle and shot glasses, stacks of poker chips, and a derringer (a favorite weapon of gamblers in the Wild West). The Wild symbol is a royal flush poker hand, and the Scatter is a gunslinger. Winning combinations trigger cute animations, with big wins resulting in a screenful of flying poker chips.
The music is understated as well. It’s reminiscent of the spaghetti westerns and compliments the western theme without being in-your-face obnoxious. A mega win features a soundtrack with the whooping and hollering of a cowboy celebrating.
Showdown Saloon Game Play, Options, and Extra Features
This is a 5-reel, 3-row offering with 15 paylines. There are options to play 20p to £100 a spin, so you can wager as much as you feel comfortable. Keep in mind, however, that there is a chance to win 1500 times your wager with the right winning combination, so a maximum bet can be rewarding.
Showdown Saloon features stacking symbols, which can lead to bigger winnings. Stacking the first two reels with the same symbol triggers a respin, with additional respins awarded if the next reel stacks with the same symbol on the respin. Five stacks of Wilds rewards you with 1,500 times your wager.
The free spin feature is triggered when three or more stacks of the Scatter symbol appear in a row, starting in reel one. Three stacks awards five free spins. Four stacks get you ten free spins with a 2x multiplier. With Five stacks of the Scatter, you get 15 free spins with a 3x multiplier.
Showdown Saloon also has a rarely found feature – the mystery stack. Each reel in the game has a stack of mystery symbols. If a stack of mystery symbols land, a single game symbol, which can include the Scatter, will replace the mystery symbols.
