iSoftBet’s recent Wild West slot adventure into the frontier has claimed our Slot of the Week.

Following its exclusive period with Betsson, Stoiximan, Softswiss and 10cric, Western Gold Megaways was given a general release as players can now saddle up and experience the new Megaways slot which features cascading wins as well as a random ‘Max Megaways’ modifier which triggers randomly to guarantee 117,649 ways to win.

Mark Claxton, head of games at iSoftBet, said: “Western Gold Megaways transports players to the badlands of the frontier in a dash to find riches while enjoying a thrilling gaming experience.

“Featuring the popular Megaways mechanic as well as a Hold and Win bonus round, players have the chance to win enormous sums in the Wild West town where the Sheriff rewards good behaviour. We can’t wait to see how it is received by our fans across the globe.”

Five or more Sheriff’s Badge symbols, which is the scatter, awards the player with the Western Gold Cash Respins feature, where cash values or one of three jackpots can land. 

Every time more scatters land on the reels, the respins will reset. If an entire reel is filled with Sheriff’s Badges, all values on that reel are multiplied by the number of symbols on the reel to produce some epic wins.

Players can buy the Western Gold Bonus Buy which costs 50x the total bet. This guarantees to trigger the Western Gold Cash Respins.

Wild symbols within the game appear on reels two, three, four and five and can substitute for all other symbols except the scatter.

The game has a medium to high volatility level with an RTP of 95.98 per cent.

Commenting on the company’s exclusive period with the game, Ciara Nic Liam, product director GOC at Betsson, noted: “Western Gold Megaways has been one of our most successful exclusive releases in 2020. 

“We are delighted to have been one of the first partners to get access to such an exciting game, and our players absolutely love it. We look forward to working closer with iSoftBet on their upcoming releases.”
