There are plenty of western themed slots around, for those of you with a hankering for lassos and guns. But Pistoleras is a cut above the rest, because this time it’s the women who are running the show. So, will this Microgaming slot make the grade and beat the other outlaws to the top of our most wanted list?
Pistoleras is a 5-reel, 25 fixed pay line slot offering an RTP of 96%, to all those who deem themselves worthy of its bounty. There are three main character symbols, all members of the Pistoleras gang. The rest of the symbols include a stagecoach scatter, a pistols wild, and your cards making up the lower values.
Bet Amounts – Betting begins at 25p per spin and can be increased to a maximum of £250 per spin. To adjust the bet amount just use the plus and minus buttons to the left of the screen.
Wild Symbol – The Pistoleras gun is your wild symbol and it substitutes for all other symbols, except the scatter. Land a wild as part of a winning line and it will triple your win for that line, and you will be happy to hear that your wild is also your highest paying symbol too.
Scatter Symbols – A stagecoach represents your scatter symbol, one will have spins on the side and one will say scatter. Land three or more of the stage coach to trigger the bonus spins or the saloon bonus round, depending on which stagecoach is on the reels.
- 3 scatter symbols will award 15 spins,
- 4 scatter symbols will award 20 spins,
- 5 scatter symbols will award 25 spins.
During the bonus round all wins are subject to x3 multiplier and the three Pistoleras members can appear stacked on the reels, contributing to bigger wins. As if that’s not enough, bonus spins can be retriggered, and the saloon bonus can also be activated from here too.
Saloon Bonus Feature – Land yourself three of the stagecoach symbols that have the word scatter on the side, on reels 1, 3 and 5, and you trigger the saloon bonus feature. You will be taken to a shooting gallery with 12 targets at the back. Take shots at the targets and reveal the image behind, if you reveal three wild symbols you will win all the prizes on offer with each character. Match three symbols relating to each character and you win that prize only. Your hope here is to match three wilds, but the prizes are good regardless. If you have triggered this feature whilst in bonus spins, once the game is over you will be returned to complete your left over spins.
The game itself could have been a little more entertaining considering the theme. There wasn’t many animations or clips which could have been added to give it some depth. We have forgiven that as we still enjoyed Pistoleras overall. The wins came quicker than a fast draw at noon in the main game and once the bonuses were activated it definitely got more interesting.
