iSofbet’s new Western-themed slot wins the SlotBeats Slot of the Week award after its exclusive release with Betsson, Stoiximan, Softswiss, and 10cric. Western Gold Megaways soon rides to town as one of the best slots of 2020.
Mark Claxton, head of games at iSoftBet, detailed the new mechanics and unique features of the game in a press release this week:
“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.”
Claxton’s claims speak volumes. Western Gold Megaways didn’t receive the Slot of the Week award for nothing. In fact, Ciara Nic Liam, product director GOC at Betsson, recognized the game as one of the best products of iSoftbet in 2020.
“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,” Liam said in a press release.
iSoftbet releases premium slots every month. Its portfolio, together with the new Western Gold Megaways slot, is available through iSoftbet Game Aggregation Platform (GAP).
Gameplay And Theme
Western Gold Megaways is a follow-up title to iSoftbet’s South American themed-slot released last year, Aztec Gold Megaways, for both Bitcoin casino sites and traditional online casinos. Fans of the South American version might see some familiar themes and visuals in Western Gold Megaways, but the new mechanics and bonus features of the new title is a notch higher than Aztec Gold Megaways.
Western Gold Megaways carries symbols straight from the American Old West era. Players can make rewarding winning combinations using badges, spurs, hip flasks, Stetson hats, and pistols. The low-paying symbols are the 9 to A royals designed in a Western font.
The game is housed in a layout of 6 reels, 3-7 expanding rows, and 117,649 paylines. Online casino operators can offer the game with a 95.98% RTP and medium to high volatility. Players can place bets ranging from 0.20 to 20 coins.
Western Gold Cash Respins – land 5 or more sheriff’s badge symbols on any reels and get 3 respins or more.
Jackpot Symbols – during the respin, players can get jackpot symbols featuring Mini, Major, and Mega rewards worth 10x, 25x, or 50x the bet.
Western Gold Bonus Buy – for 50x the original bet, the game guarantees 5 or more scatters on the next spin. This feature also increases the RTP to 97%.
