How Wanted Dead or a Wild works
In recent months, slot machine provider Hacksaw Gaming has made a habit of releasing new slots on a regular basis. This Thursday, September 30th, this slot provider, which is becoming more and more important in the online casino industry, comes up with its new creation: Wanted Dead or a Wild. When you visit this slot machine, you will be immersed in the heart of the Wild West. Very dark scenery and symbols reminiscent of the Dalton brothers or Billy the kid are waiting for you. It is a slot machine that has a starting grid of 5 horizontal rows for 5 columns. The connections work in the classic way, that is to say, each time a connection is made, the current round stops and the next one starts. There are several bonus games in Wanted Dead or a Wild as well as a feature in the base game.
As mentioned in the introduction of Wanted Dead or a Wild, this is a slot machine that has a feature in the base game. On each spin of the game, a symbol with the word "VS" on it can appear. When it appears, two things can happen. The first one: nothing happens, the symbol decides not to use its functionality. The second is that the symbol expands to cover the entire column where it appears and becomes a wild. When it expands, a multiplier that can range from x2 to x100 can also appear, making you win a large sum of money if you are lucky.
The different symbols of Wanted Dead or a Wild
Like many slot machines, Wanted Dead or a Wild has many different symbols. First of all you have the wild. This allows you to connect with all the other symbols in the slot, except the ones that give bonus features.
Then there are 10 other symbols that fall into two categories. The first category is called premium symbols. These are called premium symbols because they appear less often than the common symbols, but they pay much more when they are part of a connection. They are represented by symbols that are reminiscent of the Wild West era. The second category consists of common symbols. These are called common symbols because they appear more often than other symbols, but pay less consistently when they are part of a connection. They are represented by the strongest values in a deck of cards: Ace, King, Queen, Jack and 10. The following screen shows the values of each symbol for a starting bet of €1.
The different connections of Wanted Dead or a Wild
Wanted Dead or a Wild is a slot that has a fairly large starting grid compared to the vast majority of slots on the market. Contrary to what you might think, this slot only offers 15 different paylines, as you can see in the following screen. For a connection to occur, a symbol must appear at least once on the first three columns of the slot, but also on a payline. The further a symbol goes on a connecting line, the bigger your final win will be.
It is important to note that connections on the Wanted Dead or a Wild slot machine only work from left to right and only the highest payout per line will be taken into account.
How the Wanted Dead or a Wild bonus works
As mentioned in the introduction to this slot, Wanted Dead or a Wild contains several different bonus features. The first one is triggered when the "Duel" symbol appears at least three times on a single spin. When this happens, the slot will give you 10 free spins and you will not be able to get any additional free spins.
During these 10 free spins, you will be entitled to only one feature: the one that is present in the base game. Unlike the base game, during these 10 free spins, the "VS" symbol has a much higher appearance rate. The multipliers do not vary and are always between x 2 and x 100.
The second bonus feature is triggered when the symbol "The Great Train Robber" appears at least three times in one round of play. Just like the other bonus game, you will be entitled to 10 free spins and it will be impossible to get additional free spins.
The special thing about this bonus feature is that when a wild symbol appears on your screen, it stays in the same place until the end of your free games. So the more wild symbols you get, the more chances you have to win big money. During these free spins, it is impossible for the "VS" symbol to appear and your wild symbols will remain with a x1 multiplier until the end of your bonus. These free spins are the least volatile of the three bonuses available to you.
Then comes the last bonus feature which is the most volatile on this slot. In order to trigger it, you will need to get at least three times the "Dead" symbol on the same game spin. Once you do, you will be taken to a new page where a unique bonus feature awaits you.
On this page, you will be taken to a new screen where two symbols can appear. You have the symbol represented by a "+" as you can see in the following screen. This symbol allows you to increase the gauge of your multiplier, which is located on the top right of your starting grid. On the right are three balls, as soon as three rounds are played and no symbol appears on the grid, your first bonus feature stops and moves to the second. However, as soon as a symbol appears, you are entitled to three more throws.
The second symbol that can appear is the wild. During this first feature, the goal is to collect as many "+" and "Wild" symbols as possible in order to have a very large set up for the last feature.
Once you've had three throws that didn't give any bonuses, you'll be taken to the last part of the free spins. On the grid will be placed the number of wilds you got and each win will be multiplied by the number of multipliers you also got. During this last feature, you are only entitled to three free spins, with no guarantee of winning at the end. In each round of the game, the wilds obtained in the previous feature are randomly placed on the starting grid.
Our opinion about Wanted Dead or a Wild
Wanted Dead or a Wild is an excellent creation from Hacksaw Gaming. First of all, you will be perfectly immersed in the settings of the Wild West era where mythical characters have made thousands of people live in terror. The sound ambiance and the animations are very realistic and of excellent quality. Next is the slot machine. Equipped with a feature in the basic game, it is especially during your free games that you will appreciate Wanted Dead or a Wild. There are indeed 3 different bonus games available to you. They all have a different volatility, but the most volatile one can win you up to 12,500 times your original bet, a very substantial amount. For those who don't want to wait to get one of the three bonuses, you can buy them for 80 times, 200 times or 400 times your original bet. Unfortunately, the latest creations from this slot machine provider all have one downside: the theoretical return to players. On Wanted Dead or a Wild, the RTP varies between 92.35% and 92.58%, which puts this slot in the very good average range compared to what's on the market.
