Sheriff vs. Bandits Slots
The western section of America is a dry, sometimes hopeless desert land. However, something about the struggle captures the imaginations of many, including myself. For that reason, I was eager to try Sheriff vs Bandits. It's a virtual, slot version of one of my favorite childhood games. I often spent hours pretending to fight my friends, shooting each other with imaginary pistols and melodramatically reenacting our characters' deaths. This game has taken that concept and shoved it into slot format - and this game is amazing. It's played on a standard board with 10 fixed pay lines, plus music and visuals to fit the environment. Of course, a wild west experience wouldn't be complete without bonus features - like the Play for Sheriff Feature and the Play for Bandits Feature. They also have free spin rounds and a wild symbol. The grid is laid against a wooden house, or structure of some sort. The wind blows the desert sand, and words like 'saloon' and 'bank' are etched onto signs in the background. The lower-paying symbols are A, K, J, Q, 9, and 10. The higher-paying symbols are the theme-based images like stores, trains, banks, sheriffs,
This game has a broad betting range. If you're on a budget and still want to play, you can make a bet as low as $0.10. If you're more of a high roller, try out $50.00! There are plenty of bet options in between those numbers, and feel free to adjust your bet using the + and - symbol located at the bottom of the board. This game has a 96% RTP and medium volatility. You can play this game in demo mode as well - so you won't need to make any real money bets until you're ready. This game is also compatible with mobile devices.
The wild symbol in this game is the sheriff, and he substitutes for all standard symbols. He is the highest-paying symbol as well. There are scatter symbols, which you'll need to trigger the free spins feature. Land 3 or more scatter symbols to enter these rounds. Before the free spins launch, you'll need to choose who you're going to side with - the sheriff or the bandits. If you choose the Sheriff Feature, the Special Bandit symbols will come with a multiplier of 2x to 50x your bet. To claim these multipliers, you'll need to trigger the Sheriff symbol somewhere on the reels, so he can lasso up those bandits. If you decide to side with the bandits instead, all bandit symbols triggered during the free spins rounds will become wild symbols, and will also come with a multiplier value of up to x4.
Dragon Gaming has yet to disappoint me, so I loved this game. The theme, graphics, and special features all held up. No part of this game lacked charisma or special elements. I loved the option of getting to choose who you side with - and how it impacts the special free rounds. The payouts were solid enough this game is more than just a pretty interface - but the pretty interface doesn't hurt either. I'd recommend this game to all players of all levels who are intrigued by the theme.
