Western Gold Megaways was released this September 2020 by iSoftBet and is the remake of the popular Aztec Gold Megaways online slot. As far as western themed slots go, it’s got a somewhat softer appearance than most of the other western-themed slot offerings out there. It does however have a nice clean interface that makes playing the slot an easy as well as a fun experience. With iSoftBet releasing such high-quality games in the past, one can expect that Western Gold Megaways have the same high-quality graphics as well as a decent math model as in all their previous releases. They do not disappoint. What we have here is more of the excellent high-quality product that we have come to expect from them.
This being a Megaways slot there are 117,649 ways to win, having 6 reels with 3 and up to 7 symbols on each column. There are wins of up to 12,000x the stake, which is not bad at all. It is a medium to high volatility slot and an RTP of 95.98% which are both acceptable. It does have quite a few decent features that are on offer also, such as the Cash Respins, and also the scatters, and not forgetting the regular wilds.
At a glance it appears that we have more of the same features on offer form most slots, however, if one takes a closer look it becomes apparent that there is more than meets the eye.
Once a player has landed a winning combination. These symbols are removed and new symbols drop down to replace them. If the new symbols that drop into place are also a winning combination, then the process is repeated. This continues until there are no new winning combinations.
This feature has you keeping an eye out for the sheriff’s badge, this badge is the scatter symbol. If you land 5 or more of these then the Western Gold Cash Respins feature is activated. This feature starts with 3 respins and only scatters may land. Scatters can give you a bet multiplier or a jackpot. There are 3 jackpot symbols that you can land. The Mini symbol – which gives you 10x, next up is the Major symbol – which gives you 25x, and finally the Mega jackpot symbol – which gives you 50x the bet.
The respins are given when the player activates the scatters and also with activating the number of Megaways that are locked in their position. If any new scatter lands then It will also be locked into position and at the same time, the respins counter will be reset 3. Once a reel is full of symbols it will activate a multiplier that applies to all the scatters on that reel and also compares to the spaces on the relevant reel. Once the Western Gold Cash Respin feature has ended, then all the values are determined and the player is paid accordingly.
Players can buy this feature for 50x the total bet. This feature guarantees 5 or more scatters on their next spin, which will activate the Western Gold Cash Respins feature. This will also increase RTP to 97%.
This is most definitely an action-packed game, with a good maximum win. It has great graphics and a decent soundtrack to go with it. This game is bound to please fans of iSoftBet who enjoy Wild West themes. All in all, if you enjoy a playable as well as enjoyable slot theme. You can’t go wrong with Western Gold Megaways.
