2 by 2 presents the Gunsmoke video slot, based on a TV show from 1955. It was such a popular show at the time that it went on until 1975. And now we have the same characters in this game with 5 reels and 40 pay lines. As this is a Wild West themed slot, it completely created in that spirit. There will be guns, cards, and it's all happening in Dodge City. If you have a hidden agenda, and unclear intentions, then stay away from this town. Because you'll be caught, and brought to justice by the most capable marshall, and his loyal deputy.
Being the center of attention for all those hardcore criminals, Dodge City has the most competent Marshall, and he goes by the name of Matt Dillon. In the city, there is a lot of activity going around, and when it comes to cowboys, there is always something developing. So, this Marshall has his hands full. Luckily, he is not alone, he has his deputy to help him, sorting things out, and keeping the order. The deputy's name is Festus, and he always has a joke on a tip of his tongue. Even though some people think he is a bit slow-witted, what's important is the fact he's loyal.
Spinning on the reels, we'll see marshal's love interest, and that would be Kitty. While on the win lines, there will be an opportunity to see a scene from the actual tv show, which is really great.
Among symbols, we'll also see cards, marshal's badge, a cowboy belt with 2 guns, and all of it, designed to fit the theme fully. While the reels turn, a slow western tune will come and go, creating an original wild west experience.
Being the Wild West, there are special Wild appearances, popping up, and occupying the whole reel.
One of the most important symbols has an image of cards, and chips on the green table. This symbol is the Scatter.
The Gunsmoke video slot brings very interesting features, and they are all made to match the theme. If you get 3, 4 or 5 Bonuses, then the Bonus Round is unlocked. There are 2 options with this feature, and those are Wanted Free Spins and Shootout Bonus. One of them is picked randomly.
The number of free spins can be 8, 10, or 12, while the multipliers on the Wanted posters above the reels increase to x6, x7, the Wild reel, x8, and x10.
When the Wild drops on the third reel, one of the prizes from the posters will be awarded randomly. The Wild symbol, in the base game, and while the free spins last, has his usual replacement ability with the Scatter exception.
During the regular game, when the Wild gets caught on the third reel, special something will be added. As hinted above, there are Wanted posters above the reels bringing prizes. On these posters, there are multipliers and a Wild Reel. The right order is x2, x3, the Wild reel, x4, and x5.
So, the rule is, to any win with a Wild in it, a prize from one of the posters will be given randomly. And if it sets on the third reel, then the reel in question will become thoroughly Wild.
Even if you have never seen this show, you should try the game, because it's quite intriguing. With old-fashioned layout, it makes you believe it's plain and simple. But the truth is, there is more to it than meets the eye. It has amazing layers, with thought-through features, and you'll even get to see a scene from the show. And if you're a fan of the Westerns, then definitely come to Dodge City, you'll be more than welcome.
