Let’s take a closer look at the special symbols:
• Wild (Sheriff’s Star) is drawn only on the second, third and fourth reels. It does not pay on its own, but it does substitute for simple icons. It also activates additional multipliers of x2, x3 or x5. The size of the multiplier is selected by the random number generator. This parameter is taken into account when calculating all payouts for combinations involving Wild. If there are multiple multipliers in one chain, all of them are taken into account.
• Scatter (Desert Landscape) appears in the first, third and fifth columns. Three scatters trigger a round of free spins.
The prize round has these conditions:
• Free Spins – The free spins round only starts when you get 3 Scatter symbols on screen. Cowboys and their friends reward you with 8 free spins. During this round, every time a Wild symbol appears on the screen, it stays sticky until the end of the feature. Isn’t that great?
The free spins feature can be re-activated. Look for the regular symbols emblazoned with the gold Sheriff’s badge, they are the key to increasing the number of free spins. You’ll get 2, 3, 4 or 5 gold badge symbols and the game will bring you 4, 8, 12 or 20 extra free spins. The best way to describe a cowboy (or winner) is free spins, huge multipliers, courage and glory.
If you haven’t had any luck with this free spins feature, don’t worry, the game includes it. A prize of 10 times your stake is awarded if you win less than 10 times your stake during the free spins round.
• Wild Multiplier – This round is all about the Wild Badge symbol and how it can make more than you think. Each time it hits the screen, a 2x, 3x or 5x multiplier is added to it. If it’s part of a winning combination, the payout is increased by the multiplier you just hit. Form a winning combination of more than one Wild symbol and the game adds up all multipliers. Thus, the game pays out the full amount.
