The release of Wild Corral by Core Gaming might just be a trip to the Wild West worth taking. This will definitely be a bumpy ride as you are on the hunt for some coins. The game has 6 reels, 4 rows, and 30 ways for the player to land a winning combination. With some sunny cartoonish sights to see and energetic features to fulfill them, this game will surely manage to put a smile on your face.
The Wild West is quite commonly used as inspiration for slot games since it is known for some thrilling situations, hunts, and duels. The provider chose a lighter approach to the theme, making everything seem like a comic book telling us about a very interesting hunt for money.
The reels are set right above some train tracks surrounded by the dry desert. The sun is setting as our three hunters prepare for go time. The soundtrack is the best part as it consists of some classic western sounds and together with the guns and dust, make for a very exciting experience.
The symbols are very well designed and would look a lot scarier without their cartoon-like design. The lower-paid ones include the regular colorful royals, while the higher paid ones include the three hunters. The game also offers a wild symbol that appears as its own logo, and a bonus symbol that can appear as a whole or half gold bar.
As you would suspect this is a highly volatile game that contributes to the thrill factor as well since you never know what to expect on the next spin. On the other hand, the players who like to bet risky as well will be a bit disappointed by the betting range. The minimum bet is set at 0,10 and the maximum is at 10 coins per spin. Players, therefore, have the chance to win up to 25,000 times the stake with the help of a few features of course. The RTP is set at 95,31% which is below average and definitely could have been better.
The features of the game are very interesting and actually provide something different from the ordinary for us. The most obvious one is the Wild Zone represents the highlighted area of the four middle reels. Whenever a wild symbol lands in this area and does not contribute to a winning combination it gets locked in place until it becomes part of a win. The wild symbol replaces all other symbols of the game, except the scatter, but is also able to make winning combinations on its own.
There is also a possibility of a gun appearing to shoot one of the locked-in wilds. This automatically grants the wild a x2 multiplier and increases all the present multipliers by one if there are any. The multipliers that land on the same payline are added together when the payout is calculated.
The game also offers us a Free Spins feature that is triggered when the scatter symbol lands on reels 1 and 6. As already mentioned, there are half and full scatter symbols. Landing to half symbols will award 8 free spins, a mix of the two will award 10 free spins, and 2 full symbols will award 12 free spins. The Wild Zone expands over the entire reels and all the wilds and multipliers that are locked in at the end of the feature are added together to reveal an amazing win.
Overall, the game definitely delivers as promised. If you are interested in a fun and energetic theme, this is the game to choose. Both the design and the features bring a lot of action to the game. The volatility matches the craziness as well, making your playtime a bit intense and a lot of fun. The only part that might make you question your choice is the RTP, but it is not that bad.
