On March 2, Pragmatic Play, a flagship slot provider with 80+ HTML 5 titles for mobile and desktop computers based in Silema, Malta, released Cowboy Coins™, a western-themed slot featuring the Old West and its culture full of guns, cowboys and dusty, old cities.
True to its title, the game’s main theme is cowboys and the Wild West. The game takes place in an authentic Wild West town with inns and houses placed on both sides of the screen.
To win, players must form a combination of six paying symbols, which pay from left to right from the first reel onwards on a new, dynamic grid that has 6 reels and 3-4-4-4-4-3 rows.
The game is equipped with 2,304 winning ways.
The basic low-value symbols are 10-A royals, while the high-value bonus symbols are cards, a pistol and 3 characters as five premium tiles. A combination of six–of-a-kind low-value symbols is worth 1,25x to 2x a player’s bet, increasing to 3x to 10x for six-of-a-kind high-value bonus symbols.
The game’s volatility is in the high range, with a variable RTP due to the Bonus Buy feature and a maximum win of 30,000x a player’s bet. The game can be played on any device.
Money Scatter symbols – they appear on reels 2, 3, 4, and 5 and have values from 1x to 10x a player’s bet.
Payers symbols – these symbols only appear on the first reel, also with values of 1x to 10x a player’s bet. When the Payer lands, it applies its values to whatever Money symbol it has in view, and then its value plus the value of the Money symbol is paid out.
Collector symbols – if the Collector lands with Money symbols in sight, its value plus any Money symbol value is rewarded.
Free Respin Feature – a combination of 3 Scatters in the base game activates this feature. After activation, 3 re-spins are rewarded and only Money symbols or special symbols can appear. Money symbols appear on the main grid and Special Symbols appear on new reels that are added to the edges. Symbols lock when they land and reset respins to 3 again.
Special symbols are:
- Payer – on the reel furthest to the left, Payers apply their values to the Money symbols. However, Super Payers do this on each respin;
- Multi Collector – on the top reel, Multi Collectors pay their values plus a random Money symbol value. Furthermore, Super Multi Collectors do this on every respin;
- Collector – on the reel furthest to the right, Collectors pay their value plus the value of each Money symbol seen. Moreover, Super Collectors do this on every respin;
- Double Booster – on the bottom reel, the Double Booster double the value of 2-5 random Money symbols. Super Double Boosters do this on every respin.
Only once, when the edge reels are filled, +1 extra position is added.
The round starts with a number of Money symbols equal to the number of activated scatters.
Buy Free Spins, aka Bonus Buy feature – if there’s an opportunity, players can choose one of the five available options from the feature purchase menu such as basic respins that cost 100x a player’s bet and a Super version of the Special Symbol they would like after the first respin that costs 500x a player’s bet.
However, before choosing any of these, a base bet of 20 p/c to £/€100 must be chosen, and players can use any device to do this.
With five bonus buys, RTP will vary as mentioned above, although its default maximum value when playing normally is 96.08%.
Commenting on the launch, Irina Cornides, Chief Operating Officer at Pragmatic Play, said: “Cowboy Coins™ invites players to saddle up and aim their sights on a huge max win of 30,000x, alongside Double Boosters and Super symbol versions that pack significant power to boost win potential.”
