As far as Wild West designs go, Western Frontier is one of the least interesting ones I’ve seen so far. There is no shortage of such games out there, with this theme, so I end up comparing this one with its competitors, and it always comes up short when it comes to graphics. The symbols are the expected ones mostly, using the weapons of the Wild West, wagons, horses and tee pees, among others. Feature wise, you will discover scatter symbols, free games with 6x multipliers, plus wilds. You will have at most 15 active lines, prizes reaching a maximum value of $3,750 when obtained on them.
Betting and Prizes
With up to 10 coins selected for an active pay line, and with the denomination reaching a maximum of $0.50, expect to spend as much as $5 for each active line. Since you are allowed to pick the number of lines, and you can have up to 15 of them, the total range for the bet is between $0.01 and $75.
It appears to offer a jackpot of only 7,500 coins, which can be valued at $3,750. There are certain very interesting multipliers mentioned in the game, so you might actually get up to 6 times more, up to $22,500.
Western Frontier Slot Features
The main feature symbol seems to be the scatter, the Golden Horseshoe. Landing on any reel, and in any position, the scattered Horseshoe will help you get into the free spins feature, while also triggering some sort of prize. You will win up to 100 times the bet value from the scatter symbol.
Should 3+ Horseshoe scatters be on the reels, you will trigger 8 free spins, with the chance to retrigger additional ones while you’re in the Indian Feature. The Indian Feature is the first stage of the free spins, where you play through the initial offering and you try to reach the Cowboy Feature.
To do that, you need to land Wild Horse symbols, as many of them as possible. These are wild symbols, with 2x multipliers applied to wins that they offer you, during the Indian Feature. At the end of the Indian stage, the game looks at how many Wild Horses you gathered, and you can win between 8 and 16 free spins, with wild wins varying between 2x and 6x. The Cowboy Feature starts up once the spins of the Indian Feature are consumed.
Theme & Design
The graphics look quite dated unfortunately, and this is an aspect of Western Frontier slot that I wasn’t a big fan of. The symbols are half chosen well, the other half being the poker icons. Images include the horseshoe, the wild horse, tomahawks and six shooters, tee pees, camp fires and wagons.
Western Frontier casino game has that unusual free spins feature as a point in its favor, but pretty much everything else is not as good as what you might find in one of its competitors.
