Ireland – GAN’s Silverback Gaming launches Wilds of The WestBy Phil - 24 October 2022
Quickly following September’s release of Golden Calaveras, Silverback Gaming is pleased to announce the launch of its second game since the acquisition by GAN, Wilds of The West.
This 4-line, 6-reel slot boasts 4096 ways to win as well as a multitude of game mechanics including Locked Wilds, Gamble Win and Free Spins. The Sheriff’s badge symbol is Wild and sticky in both the base game and the Free Spins round. In the base game, Wilds are Locked in place for between 3 and 5 consecutive spins, whereas in Free Spins they are sticky for the remainder of the feature.
All wins in the base game can also be moved into the Gamble Win feature, giving players the option to either take a 50/50 to double their win in a classic Red or Black card feature, or to take their chances with the Bonus Wheel, gambling their win for a chance to enter the Free Spins round. The bigger the base win, the higher the chance of winning the Bonus Wheel feature.
Landing three or more Gold Wagon scatter symbols triggers 10 Free Spins with any Wilds in that base spin being carried through into the bonus feature. These and all subsequent wilds that land during the Free Spins game are locked until the end of the round, leading to huge winning possibilities. Also, landing any further scatter symbols during Free Spins triggers additional spins, with each scatter awarding 2 additional spins.
The game is licensed in 11 jurisdictions and available in 29 languages, so in the territories that allow it, there is also a configurable Buy Bonus button.
Raphael Di Guisto, Founder at Silverback Gaming, said: “We’re so excited to bring another great, feature-laden game to market so quickly after our last launch. Wilds of The West has some amazing, sticky features which we’re sure will lead to some great wins.
“Everyone loves a sticky Wild, so we made the brave decision to make all Wilds sticky, even in the base game, for at least 3 spins. In the bonus game this can lead to whole walls of Wilds and massive wins up to our simulated max win of 5000x.
“We hope all of our partners will jump aboard the Gold Wagon with us for what will be an amazing addition to their casino lobbies.”
Simon Hammon, CEO at Relax Gaming, said “The team at Silverback Gaming have once again hit the mark with a great release. With some superb features I’m certain Wilds of The West will be a brilliant addition to the Wild West slot genre.”
