Wanted Dead or a Wild is a Western-themed slot game from Hacksaw Gaming. The graphics are quite simple, and the atmosphere of the game is rather bleak, yet it suits the theme quite well and, at least, nothing disturbs your concentration when you play Wanted Dead or a Wild at Guts casino. Played on a 5x5 grid, you’ll be observing duels and train robberies and will have a chance of landing the 12,500x the bet maximum win.
Whichever one of Hacksaw Gaming’s slot machine games you choose from Guts’ games library; you’ll agree that they are very characteristically designed. The backdrop of the Dead or a Wild slot is a dark sunset view with burnt trees on each side of the grid. During special features, the background will change but it always remains dark and bleak.
The game is played on 5 reels across 5 rows and offers 15 paylines where you must collect matching symbols from left to right. The lower-value symbols are playing cards from 10 to A while the higher-value ones are objects of the Wild West. The order of value of the symbols is this: buffalo skull, an outlaw in a mask and cowboy hat, sack of money, whisky bottle, and gun cylinder.
The Wild symbols substitute for all other symbols except the VS symbol and the bonus game symbols.
NZ players can buy the bonus features of the game. For the Great Train Robbery feature, you’ll have to pay 80x your bet. The Duel At Dawn and the Dead Man’s Hand features come with a price tag of 200x and 400x the bet, respectively.
The Great Train Robbery is triggered by landing 3+ Train Robbery symbols. This medium-volatility feature includes 10 Free Spins and here all wilds will remain sticky for the duration of the feature.
Three plus Duel symbols will get you to the Duel At Dawn feature which also awards 10 Free Spins. In this highly volatile bonus feature, you’ll have to land VS symbols to trigger the duels that turn entire reels into a wild multiplier of max 100x.
Landing 3+ Dead scatters trigger the Dead Man’s Hand feature where through the collect phase you can collect up to 20 wilds and a multiplier of 31x. In the showdown phase, all the wilds you’ve collected will land on the reels and your total multiplier will be applied.
Wanted Dead or a Wild RTP is 96.38% in the base game. A cool feature of the game is that the RTP and the volatility change with the different bonus rounds. Throughout the game, the volatility ranges from medium to high.
