As expected from Yggdrasil Gaming which always impresses with its slot releases, The One Armed Bandit slot looks beautifully designed with an innovative approach and a couple of unique features. The game’s reels are set somewhere in a Wild West desert with nothing but sand, clear blue skies and distant mountains depicted in the distance.
On the reels, players will come across traditional symbols such as diamonds, clubs, spaces and hearts which are lower-valued and cowboy hats, whiskey flasks, cowboy boots and pistols which act as higher-valued symbols. There is also an interesting, theme-matching soundtrack playing in the back for more enticing, entertaining gaming experience. Besides its standard symbols, The One Armed Bandit slot also features both wilds and scatters depicted as the sheriff’s badge and the gunslinger.
The highlight of the game is its Free Spins bonus that besides offering loads of free spins also features a great winning multiplier that can go up to 20x players’ stake. In order to trigger this bonus feature, players have to land five bonus scatter symbols on all five reels. Once this mode is on, the ultimate showdown between gang leaders and the sheriff takes place. Initially, players receive 10 free spins with a 5x winning multiplier.
However, with every extra scatter symbol landed during this mode, the players’ winning multiplier goes up by one all the way up to 20x their stake. What is even more, every new bonus symbol landed during this bonus brings players one extra free spin. In the case of landing two bonus symbols, the winning multiplier increases by 5 while landing two more symbols brings an additional 10x winning multiplier.
Besides this Free Spins bonus, The One Armed Bandit slot also features re-spins that players trigger as soon as they land at least one scatter on the reels. In other words, the Re-spin feature is trigger with scatters and each scatter landed brings one re-spin. Once this happens, these triggering scatters become wilds which remain in their position for the following re-spins.
During this bonus mode, players can also benefit from 5x winning multiplier wilds which keep coming onto the reels until no more new scatter symbols are landed. Thanks to these bonuses, players can pocket wins worth up to 9,440x their stake when the maximum winning multiplier coming into the game.
Just like all Yggdrasil Gaming-powered slots, The One Armed Bandit slot is beautifully rendered, superbly designed for the maximum entertainment. Besides its great looks, the game can also yield spectacular winnings especially thanks to its remarkable 20x winning multipliers which frequently apply. All in all, players interested in exploring virtual Wild West will definitely have a great time on this online journey.
