Low value symbols in the game are represented by cigar cutters, cigars, knuckle dusters, pistols and whiskey bottles. These symbols can offer between x0.1 and x1 the player’s bet, depending on the amount of matching combinations that land in one turn.
A child character, bearded male and a cowgirl depict the medium value symbols. If the right amount of winning combinations land on a single spin then these symbols can offer between x0.25 and x2 the player’s stake.
High value symbols come in the form of a spectacled cowboy and a pistol-wielding face-painted character. These symbols can offer between x0.4 and x5 the player’s stake, if the right amount of paying combinations land in one go.
Finally, a scatter text symbol can land on the reels. This will trigger a free spins feature if four or more land on the reels at once. Four scatters will award 15 free spins, five gives 20 and six scatters will provide 25 spins.
El Cowboy Megaways is a cascading slot title, meaning winning symbols on a payline will disappear once they have applied their win, to make way for new symbols and increase the win potential of an already successful turn.
Two bonus horizontal reels are placed above and below the reels. The top row can present action symbols while the bottom row places wild symbols under specific reels. If these align to be above and below the same column, then the action will be triggered.
Three actions are available. Firstly, there is the expanding action. This causes a wild to expand and cover the entire reel that the action and wild symbols align on.
Next up, there is the dropping action. This causes five wilds to drop randomly on the reel. Respins will be awarded to the player, with the wilds shifting down one row with every respin. The respins finish once the wilds drop off of the screen.
Finally, there is the multiplier wild action. With this feature, multiplying wilds can drop onto the reels with a value of either x2, x3, x4 or x5. No wilds can drop onto the first reel at any point in the game.
When four or more scatters drop at once, the free spins feature will be activated. With this feature, the top bonus reel can only have one action, the dynamite action. The bottom bonus reel will have either a wild action or a multiplier wild action.
When these two reels align in the free spins game, the feature offered by the bottom reel will be activated. With the wild action, 15 wild symbols will land on any of the reels, other than the first one.
The multiplier wild action will drop a number of wilds with multiplier values between x2 and x5 onto the reels.
Throughout the free spins feature, a multiplier reel is added to the right side of the board, multiplying payouts by x2, x3, x4, x5, x6, x8, x10, x12, x15, x20, x25, x50 or x100 randomly on every winning spin.
Players also have the opportunity to buy the free spins bonus feature for the price of a significantly increased bet.
