Showdown Saloon Slot Machine
Microgaming is releasing a new slot called Showdown Saloon. It features a Wild West theme and is packed with special features. Although the theme is quite popular and common, the special features are the ones that will catch your attention. Knowing Microgaming’s quality, you should expect a lot of pleasant surprises regarding the payouts, design and visual effects.
The first thing you should know about Showdown Saloon is that it is anything but a simple slot game. You will find several major features to make your gaming experience immersive.
First, you will find the Royal Flush which acts as a substitute for any other symbol except for the Scatter. Other than substituting for other symbols in winning combinations, this symbol has no other role.
Then, you will find the Mystery Stacked symbols. These mystery symbols can land on any position on reel one and two where they will transform into a single symbol, while the mystery stacks can transform to something else, stacked scatters not excluded.
There is also a Re-Spin feature that you can trigger, as soon as you land adjacent matching stacked symbols on the three middle reels. These are sticky symbols, meaning that you can have the other reels re-spin. All of the next Mystery symbols that land are going to transform into the symbols that are already sticky.
As mentioned, Scatters can also appear stacked. If you manage to land 3 or more stacked Scatters, you will get 5 to 15 Free Spins. On any win from those Free Spins, you can get a multiplier that can go up to 3x.
Theme & Design
Considering the theme is Wild West, expect to find symbols that will reflect the theme flawlessly, as Microgaming has always been depicting the theme with absolute perfection. You will find bullets, poker chips, whiskey, playing cards, the Royal Flush, cowboys and pistols. In the background, you will find gun shells, probably from a shooting duel that perfectly portrays the atmosphere in the good old saloons. There are also some playing cards behind the reels, meaning there has been some gambling involved in the saloon. As expected from Microgaming, the sound effects and the visuals are spotless.
Wagering & Paylines
The game has a pretty nice RTP of 96.05% and promises a 750x the stake maximum winning potential. For a game that offers 15 paylines and a fitting betting range of $0.20 minimum bet and $100.00 maximum bet, it means that you can win up to $75,000 from one round for the max bet. With the Free Spins, you can have many such rounds, meaning you can get quite profitable payouts from Showdown Saloon.
Based on Microgaming’s undeniable reputation and quality, we expect Showdown Saloon to become a real success. From what we could see, the slot has all the qualities to become a huge hit, since the features are super cool, the payouts can be more than memorable and the theme is depicted perfectly.
