Bounty Raid Review
Bounty Raid is a rootin'-tootin 5-reel, 20 payline Wild West-themed slot that celebrates all things Cowboy-related! Lock and load your pistol and get spinning the reels, this unique Red Tiger Gaming slot boasts a Bounty Hunter feature that sees bandits locked to the reels and the Sheriff feature that sees all Bandit symbols captured and their collective values paid out to players.
The overall design of Bounty Raid is massively underrated, the reels are surrounded by a gorgeous metal and wood trim that looks somewhat like the detailing you'd find on an old-style revolver. The reels themselves are a clean burgundy colour which allows the symbols to really stand out.
Behind the reels is an old-fashioned sepia-tone image of a group of bandits galloping along on their horses, pursued by who we can only assume is the Sheriff who has his gun drawn ready to shoot them down.
Low paying symbols are card suits clubs, diamonds, hearts and spades. High paying symbols include a pair of boots, a pile of rope with a cowboy hat atop it, a horses saddle, two crossed revolvers and an overflowing chest full of gold.
There are six special symbols, five of these display the faces of feared bandits, each of which have a special multiplier attached to them. The sixth and final special symbol is the Sheriff, if he lands on the reels with the bandits, then they're caught.
Like all Red Tiger Gaming slots, Bounty Raid is incredibly easy to navigate. Players can change their stake (between 0.10 and 100) by clicking the - and +, and set up to 100 automated spins via a button on the far left-hand side of the slot. On the opposite side is a large yellow spin button, that's literally all there is to this game.
It's worth knowing that this slot does not feature any sort of fully-fledged free spins bonus, instead players receive large payouts when the Sheriff symbol appears on the reels along with Bandits. The Bounty Hunter feature does see players receive re-spins, but it's not the same as your stereotypical free spins bonus.
Frustratingly, Bounty Raid has a below-average RTP of 94.72% and an equally disappointing maximum win of just 1,000x the player's stake, which for a slot that doesn't have a progressive jackpot released in 2020 is pretty bad.
Bounty Raid genuinely has great potential to be a fantastic slot that doesn't rely on a free spins feature to keep players entertained, but with such a pitiful win potential we can't really get too excited about this brilliantly designed Red Tiger slot.
