Wild Bandolier takes place in a typical 19th-century town centre in the midst of nowhere. You might have assumed that slot manufacturers have visited every frontier town by now. But regardless, the game grid is located in the middle of the street, flanked by rows of structures, while free spins take place in a dusty saloon. It is indeed the Wild West, and Play'n GO has created a visually appealing and sonically pleasing slot machine.
Players load their own ammunition by wagering between 0.10 and 50 per spin; the lower-than-usual upper limit may reflect the probabilities of hitting Wild Bandolier's modest maximum win. It's a medium-volatility slot, and although RTP wasn't available at the time of writing, given that it's a Play'n GO game, players can anticipate an RTP of 96% or more, with lower returns possible in other markets.
Along the board, there are 20 fixed paylines for landing lucrative combinations of 3 to 5 of a kind. 10-valued symbols are the lowest-valued pay symbols.The highest paying symbols are a card, which awards 2 to 5 times the wager for 5 of a kind, followed by a boot, a glass and bottle, a firearm, and two characters. A five-of-a-kind premium winning line returns 8 to 25 times the wager. Wild Bullets are essential to many of the greatest shocks in Wild Bandolier, and they can appear on all reels. Wilds compensate for all symbols besides scatters and pay 100 times the wager for five in a row.
Three scatter symbols activate the bonus round, which awards 10 free spins to players. Before the game begins, three wanted posters appear on-screen, and participants select one of them. This indicates whether 10, 25, or 40 Bullet Wilds are guaranteed to appear during the free spins round. In addition to the guaranteed Wild Bullets, free spins feature a win multiplier. On each turn, a multiplier of up to x5 is applied to any winning combination. The last item to keep in mind is the Bandit Free Spin Trigger. The Bandit may appear on any turn to initiate the free spins bonus round.
