Play Western Gold Megaways
Head to a dusty town which serves as a backdrop to the reels flanked by brick walls on either side. The reels are home to high-value, theme-related icons depicted as revolvers, sheriff’s hats, flasks and spurs. Low-paying symbols are represented by playing card royals. There are also two special symbols – Wild and Sheriff’s Badge Scatter.
How to Play
To play the Western Gold Megaways, you need to wager between $0.20 and $20 per spin. Just pick a coin value that suits you best, and you are good to go.
Push the Spins button or activate up to 1,000 automatic spins to set the reels in motion.
Landing 2 or 3 symbols of a kind on adjacent reels left to right will generate a payout.
Strategy & Tips
Whenever you hit a win, contributing symbols will be removed from the reels to let new ones land in their positions thanks to the cascading reels feature.
When you land 5 or more Scatters on the reels, the Western Gold Cash Respins feature is activated awarding 3 respins with all triggering symbols kept in their positions. Each of them comes with a multiplier. If you fill the reel with Scatters, multiplier values will be multiplied by the number of the reel (for example, multipliers on the reel 3 are multiplied by 3). Landing another Scatter resets the number of spins to 3. When the feature is over, all multipliers are added together to pay a prize.
If you land Mini, Major or Grand Scatter on the reels, you can also win a 10x, 25x or 50x the stake jackpot, respectively.
There is also the Western Gold Bonus Buy feature that allows you to enter respins at a price of 50x your bet and increase the RTP from 95.98% to 97%.
