Wanted Dead or a Wild Review

Within the world of online slots, there are a huge amount of Wild West slots that are all quite generic and cookie-cutter - but that's not the case with Wanted Dead or a Wild. Developed by Hacksaw Gaming, this high volatility slot plays on a grid of 5x5 and uses the Cluster Pays mechanic to match up wins of 5 or more.

Throughout this slot, the goal is to catch all of the outlaws and gain the bounty. On top of the spaghetti western aesthetic, Wanted Dead or a Wild contains a variety of features including Duel at Dawn, Dead Man's Hand and The Great Train Robbery!

Design

The background looks like a cover for an old spaghetti western film with the orange colours mixed with the tree stump at sundown. On the reels, you'll notice various images such as bandits, whisky, gun barrels and bags of money which fit in with the theme of the slot. All the images look crisp and clean with the colours blending in well with the background image.

There are three different spin modes and each one has a different background. The Duel at Dawn spins takes you to dawn with the background showcasing an abandoned forest in which a showdown is about to go down. Each of the modes fit in well in terms of the background and definitely give you the full atmosphere of the Wild West.

As for the music, it's absolutely brilliant. This song is exactly what you think of when you see a Western film. It's a hybrid of various songs feature with a mixture of Ennio Morricone's best songs and it's so befitting for this slot.

Gameplay

Like most Hacksaw Gaming slots, this game plays on a grid of 5x5 with Cluster Pays mechanic. Ultimately, it's straightforward as all you do is match up 5 symbols and all the bonus features are simple to follow as well.

You can find all the relevant buttons at the bottom of the screen with the spin button, bet level and autospin button at the bottom right of the screen. Further to the left, you'll find the drop-down menu and the Bonus Buy button for non-UK players.

Win Potential

Wanted Dead or a Wild has a high volatility level with a solid RTP at 96.38% - which is acceptable for an online slot. With the high volatility, you can expect higher wins but these will be less frequent.

Thankfully, the maximum win is 12,500x your stake which can be achieved through the bonus round with the multipliers that can reach up to x100. Throughout our playthrough, we found that triggering the bonuses was fairly common during our game, but this won't be the case for everyone.

Our Verdict

With all the features and the design, Wanted Dead or a Wild is absolutely brilliant. You'll be transported to an old Western movie with a perfect soundtrack to accompany you. From start to finish, we thoroughly enjoyed our playthrough and definitely want to go back.

If you love Cluster Pays or even the old spaghetti westerns, then give this slot a spin as you won't be disappointed.
