Microgaming has a new slot release, one that will take you on a Wild West adventure and will make you feel the heat of the atmosphere in the western wilderness. The 5-reeled, 15-payline slot was developed by Fortune Factory Studios, a smaller game studio that develops innovative game content exclusively for the leading software provider. Showdown Saloon is now available at all Microgaming-powered online casinos.
Showdown Saloon Characteristics
The Wild West theme present in the slot is depicted with absolute perfection. As you load the game, you will see that the action takes place in a small western town, and you’re welcomed by a cowboy, loaded with guns. The reels are set on a table where high-roller cowboys are gambling since you can see playing cards, chips, guns and bullets.
On the reels, you will see all sorts of symbols displaying the crazy Wild West world. You will find a bottle of whiskey, pistols, poker chips, dice and playing cards, all implying that Wild West is all about drinking, gambling and shooting.
As you would expect from a Microgaming slot, the graphics are impressive and the sound effects are high-end.
In terms of special features, you should know that this is anything but a simple game. There are several special features that will make your gaming time more exciting, but more rewarding also.
To start with, each of your spins will be filled with Stacked Mystery symbols. Each of these Mystery symbols can be replaced by a regular game symbol. During the base spins, the two leftmost Mystery Stacks will be replaced by the same symbol, although the remaining ones could be replaced by different symbols. Free Spins symbols replace for the Mystery symbols in the base game, however, the Mystery Symbols on all reels will be replaced by the same symbol during Free Spins. The game can, in fact, give you up to 15 Free Spins.
Matching full Stacks on reels 2 to 4, you can trigger Re-Spins. The triggering Stacks are locked, and the remaining reels Re-Spin then. Landing adjacent matching Stacks will retrigger these Re-Spins, and on each Re-Spin, Mystery Stacks transform and match the symbols in the triggering Stacks. At one point, you get a screen filled with same symbols!
