Outlaw Saloon Review
Let's be honest, the Wild West theme has been done to death, but that hasn't stopped slot developers all over the world from trying to bring out the next great Western-themed slot. And we were pleasantly surprised by how good Gold Coin Studios' Outlaw Saloon is when stacked up against some of the other most popular games in this genre.
With 5 reels and 3 rows, this is a very standard slot game. But with 20 paylines, it's a little more on the generous side than many other games with fixed paylines. The RTP of 96% is right on the nose for an average slot, and its high volatility means that payouts are infrequent but can be extremely lucrative.
We're going to get into the look and feel of this game a little later on, but from the outset, this is a good-looking slot with lots of special features to help you along your way as you reach for that huge jackpot prize. And as far as Wild West slots go, this slot has the potential for a great evening's entertainment and some genuinely big cash prizes.
When you open the game, you'll be greeted with a dusty, dark saloon atmosphere and some aloof and brooding cowboy-type characters. So far, exactly as we would have expected. But when you start to spin the reels in the base game, you'll see that this slot has a lot more on offer than initially meets the eye.
The imagery used in this game is pretty generic, with whiskey bottles, sacks of coins and the usual playing card suits for symbols. But the graphics here are particularly crisp and well-detailed, which gives this game from Gold Coin Studio a very slick and modern feel.
Finally, the thing we enjoyed most about the design of the slot is the music. The soundtrack sounds like it's walked straight out of a Quentin Tarantino film, and the music adds to the saloon atmosphere, at the same time as being genuinely great to listen to. Oh, and of course, there are the obligatory gunshot sound effects thrown in for good measure.
Outlaw Saloon stands out from other Western-themed slots for its cool graphics, fantastic soundtrack and all the additional features it offers.
The Outlaw Saloon is a versatile and fast-paced game. With a very standard 5 reels and 3 rows, it isn't as complicated as some other slots on the market, and it’s perfect for both beginners and seasoned slots fans. And with 20 paylines, there are plenty of chances to make winning combos and trigger some of the special functions.
To make a payline, you must match 3 or more symbols across the reels, left to right. But it's your job to search for those all-important Sheriff badges that will take you into the free spins round, where you'll find those glorious glasses of hooch waiting to give you multipliers and instant cash payouts.
We particularly like the big buffalo skull that appears when you land a big win, and the gunslinging theme is done well here, with lots of bullet holes and clinking of gold coins to boot.
With an RTP of 96%, Outlaw Saloon is around the average for a slot game. The game has 20 paylines, which gives you more potential to make winning combinations than a lot of other slots with just 5 reels and 5 rows. It would have been nice if the paylines were adjustable, but you can't have everything.
And with a minimum bet of just 20p, you can cover each payline for just a penny. At the other end of the scale, the maximum bet is £25, meaning that a 10,000x victory would make you a very rich gunslinger indeed! But with high volatility, you'll have to sit back and have a few drinks at the saloon before you see those big wins roll in.
That said, with guaranteed re-spins, multipliers and instant cash prizes all up for grabs, walking out of this saloon with some gold coins in your back pocket is certainly not out of the question. Plus, with a massive potential jackpot of 10,000x your stake, this is a very generous bunch of cowboys!
