Symbols in the game include four classic card suit royals offering multiplier values worth x0.04, x0.08 and x0.2 the bet for combinations of three, four and five-of-a-kind, respectively. These are followed by a bottle of whiskey and a pair of cowboy boots, offering x0.12, x0.2 and x0.48 the bet for three, four and five-of-a-kind, respectively.
Next up, players can find a cowboy hat and horseshoe worth x0.16, x0.24 and x0.60 the bet for three, four and five-of-a-kind, with a snake and armadillo sitting at the top of the paytable paying out x0.2, x0.4 and x1.20 the bet for three, four and five on a line.
Moving onto special symbols, wilds pay the same as the highest-paying icons on the paytable and substitute for all regular-pays.
Meanwhile, bonus and free spins symbols are used to activate the title’s features.
Lastly, during the trail bonus feature, players will find an array of symbols, each holding its own action as follows: coins award credit amounts displayed on the space ranging from x1 to x200; doubles, which double all the credit amounts on the board including the prizepot; and forward and back spaces, moving players up or down one to six spaces, awarding the random new space landed on.
Moreover, there are hearts, awarding players an additional life; lightning rolls; collecting all awards on the next bullet roll; an ‘award all credits’ icon, awarding all coins that are within up to three positions from this item; and spin upgrades; doubling the number the number of bullets rolled each turn to determine the number of spaces the Armadillo moves for the rest of the bonus.
Lastly, the trail prizepot at the end of the feature awards x2,000 the bet (potentially doubled by the double icon). Meanwhile, landing on a snake will end the bonus unless the armadillo has accumulated a heart, in which case, an accumulated heart is lost and the trail bonus continues.
The title incorporates random features, a free spins mode, a trail bonus and a top prizepot.
At the beginning of each spin, there is a chance of triggering the following features before the reels stop spinning: random wilds, where random positions on the reels are substituted with wild symbols; wild reels, where every position on randomly selected reels are substituted with wild symbols; colossal reels, where randomly selected adjacent reels will fuse together, creating 2×2, 3×3, or 4×4 big symbols; or random multipliers, where a random multiplier of x2, x3, x4, or x5 applies to all line wins.
Furthermore, after each reel spin, the following features may also be triggered: a symbol upgrade, where all of a lower symbol chosen at random that is visible on the reels are upgraded to a randomly selected higher paying symbol; repeat win, where a winning spin repeats for free from two to five times; or instant win, which awards a random credit amount from x1 to x100.
Moving onto the trail bonus, this is activated by landing three or more bonus scatters. During the trail bonus, the armadillo begins at the start of a game board with a trail of spaces each with an award, feature, or a snake.
A pistol is repeatedly loaded with a random number of bullets from one to six which corresponds to the number of spaces the Armadillo moves rightward, landing on the spaces on the trail again and again like in a board game.
After each random move from one to six, the player is given the item on the space landed. This process continues until the player lands on a snake with zero hearts remaining.
Alternatively, if the player makes it to the end of the trail, there is a prizepot of x2,000 which will be awarded in addition to the awards given during and at the end of the bonus.
Finally, landing three or more free spin symbols triggers the combo free spins feature, awarding three spins. During each free game, a random feature is guaranteed on every spin.
