Gunsmoke by Microgaming takes us to the Wild West where need to help Sheriff Dillon and Miss Kitty catch bad guys. In particular the game is located in Dodge City. Several decades ago there was a TV show called Gunsmoke and this game is based around that storyline. It has eye-catching video effects and the audio is theme related. It has all a slot game can have and now you can get a taste of all its features. You don’t have to be a fan of the western culture to enjoy in this game. Gunsmoke can be a reason for excitement, but first you need to give it a shot.
In late 2015 Microgaming seemed to have moved away from the 5x3 format and started favoring the 5x4. This too is a 5 reel video slot with 4 rows of symbols. It offers fixed 40 paylines which means the player can’t change the number of activated paylines. The coin can have a value between 0.01 and 0.20. The game is rather flexible in terms of how many coins can be placed per every line with 1 being the minimum and 20 the maximum. A minimum bet of 0.40 won’t let beginners to experience every bit of greatness this game can bring to the table. However, the upper limit is set to 160 allowing high-rollers to play the game in style.
The Wild Symbol is represented with what looks like a Wanted Poster. It can show up on the 3rd reel and substitutes for all other symbols except the scatter. When the wild shows up on the 3rd reel the player will have its winning multiplied by a random multiplier listed on top of the reels. If you hit 3, 4 or 5 of the Bonus Symbols which is in the same time the Scatter you’ll get 8, 12 or 16 Free Spins respectively. Another feature that can come up with hitting 3, 4 or 5 scatters is the Shootout Bonus.
The shootout bonus is a bonus game that shows the player 12 different down cards. Depending on how many bonus symbols the player’s hit a different number of picks is granted such as 3, 4 or 5. The player can win 6, 10 or 15 Free Spins. All of these Free Spins are played with the 3rd reel being Wild. This is your best chance to win some considerable prizes.
Besides the high minimum bet new players will find it surprisingly entertaining. It has a number of features that steadily take the player into the world of slots. The only thing that we find incomplete is the symbol design. Microgaming could’ve invested a bit more time to make them stunningly cool looking. Besides that, we can’t complain over anything else.
