Swedish iGaming provider Play’n GO has unveiled Wild Bandolier, a slot game centered around the Wild West and cowboy culture, featuring a bandit who antagonizes the sheriff, who in turn aims to protect the townspeople. In a unique twist, players support the bandit throughout the game.
The game is visually striking, with a Wild West theme, featuring outlaws, the sheriff, and cowboy culture. Set in a remote Wild West town, the game is accompanied by a fitting soundtrack. Players must align 3 to 5 identical symbols on a payline, starting from the leftmost reel, on a dynamic 5×3 grid with 20 fixed paylines.
Low-value symbols include royal cards 10, J, Q, K, and A, while medium-value symbols are a liquor bottle, gun, and boots. High-value bonus symbols are represented by the bandit and the sheriff. The game boasts high volatility, a default RTP of 96.29%, and a maximum win of 2,000 times a player’s bet. Other versions with varying RTPs are also available.
Playable on any device, players can gamble paid spins for 10 p/c up to 50 euros/$. The game features a Wild Symbol, Wild Bullets, Free Spins, and the Smoke & Mirror feature. In the Free Spins feature, players choose from three wanted posters to reveal guaranteed Wild Bullets.
Each spin has a random multiplier of 1x to 5x added to the spin’s winnings. The Smoke & Mirror feature activates when only two Scatters appear, giving players the chance to spin for a third Scatter and automatically unlock Free Spins. The game is similar to other Play’n GO releases such as Wild Trigger, Golden Colts, Gunslinger Reloaded, and The Last Sundown.
George Olekszy, Head of Game Retention at Play’n GO, commented on the launch, saying, “Western slots are great performers, so we went above and beyond for Wild Bandolier.” He praised the Smoke & Mirror feature for its potential to complete a payline and noted the integration of the shooting feature with the Sheriff adds suspense to each round.
