Where to play Gunslinger pokies online
Gunslinger by Play’n Go is a 5 reel pokies featuring 25 paylines. You can play a minimum of just one payline or have all 25 activated – which is recommended if you want the best payouts and the best chance at triggering the progressive jackpot attached.
There’s up to five available coins to play, with the coin size ranging from 0.01 to 0.25. This means there’s a small maximum bet of $31.25 (with all five coins in play and coin size set at 0.25) and an even smaller minimum bet of just $0.01 per spin (with one coin in play set at 0.01).
The real money online slot also a Bet Max option, but it is dependant on how many coins you play. For example, if you have just one coin in play and press bet max, it will be $1.25 per spin, while five coins will see the maximum bet of the pokie activated.
You will find all the adjuster buttons underneath the reels, alongside the ‘Spin’ button and ‘Auto Play’.
You can play Gunslinger on smartphone and tablets, not just PCs and desktops, thanks to Play’n Go making the game compatible with portable devices.
Symbols and payouts of Play’n Go’s Gunslinger
Play’n Go have stuck with the traditional A to 10 symbols to represent the standard low paying values, but each have been designed on cards with casino chips to really tie the theme together. You need at least three of a kind to earn a payout and all wins pay from left to right on an active payline.
The middle to high paying symbols are represented by the guns, the beautiful lady, and the gold – with three of a kind earning you a payout on an active payline.
There’s quite a few extra symbols to keep an eye out for including the Scatter, which is the horse with a minimum of two earning a payout; the Wild, which is the Cowboy and substitutes for all symbols except the Bonus, Free Spin, and Scatter symbols; the Bonus symbol which includes three wanted posters and triggers the feature; the Free Spins symbol which is the bottles where you shoot to score free spins; and the progressive jackpot symbol which is triggered by collecting the lower paying symbols (10-A).
This shows there’s quite a few features to the pokie. For more information on the symbols and payouts, click or tap on ‘Paytable’ in the bottom right hand corner.
Gunslinger’s special features
Interestingly, Play’n Go have chosen to include an extra symbol instead of using the Scatter to trigger the Free Spins feature. The Scatter does pay up to 200x your total spin amount if you spin five of a kind however.
The Free Spins feature is triggered by the Bonus bottles symbol and if you spin three on the reels you will be able to pick one to shoot. Here you can win up to 25 free spins with a 2x multiplier applied on all wins. Additionally, you can re-trigger the free spins by spinning three more bottles on the reels.
Next up is the Bounty Hunter which is activated by three wanted poster on the reels. Here, barrels will appear which you can shoot to score cash payouts. Then you will participate in a gunfight with a villain of your choice, winning a multiplier if you beat him. You can trigger this feature during the Free Spins round too.
Finally, if you manage to spin all five low paying symbols on a winning payline you will be given five cards. You can turn these over to win prizes, including the progressive jackpot – see below for more information.
There’s also the Gamble feature where you can double your winnings by choosing red or black correctly, or quadruple your winnings by picking the correct suit.
Audio and graphics of Play’n Go’s Gunslinger
The soundtrack attached to this title is quite unusual. It stops every time you finish a spin – unless you land a win and in this case the audio changes to a classic Western sound. When the reels spin, the sound is somewhat mechanical so perhaps it might be more enjoyable to mute the pokie – you can do this via the bottom left hand corner.
The graphics on the other hand have been crafted well – the design is quite stunning and the symbols represent a Western Cowboy theme well. We particularly enjoy the attention to detail on the wanted posters too.
Gunslinger progressive jackpot
There’s a small progressive jackpot attached to Gunslinger, only revealed when playing in real money mode.
It can be won by spinning 10, J, Q, K, and A on an active payline and here five cards, facing down will appear. Each card you turn over which reveals an amount will get you closer to winning the jackpot – turn over a sheriff’s badge and you will cease the bonus round. If you turn all five cards over and each reveal an amount you will win the jackpot.
Our thoughts on Gunslinger
The small maximum bet makes it a great title for low rollers – high rollers might want to look elsewhere – with no maximum bet required to trigger the progressive either.
Our favourite bonus is the Bounty Bonus as the gunfight option is incredibly interactive. Not only do you get to shoot barrels to win a payout, you get to multiply your winnings by shooting at a villain – adding a video game element to the online pokie. If you want a fast paced bonus however, perhaps aim for the Free Spins feature.
Overall, we found when writing this online slots review, Gunslinger is a fun an interactive pokie worth playing if you want to be entertained while winning real money.
