Western Belles Slot Machine
In Western Belles by IGT, the world’s leading slot developer have gone back to a classic slots theme: the Wild West, or more specifically the beautiful ‘cowgirls’ of that era. This is a 40 line video slot with a twist. Players have the option to spend 160 more coins to have a completely wild reel on every spin. This reel is randomly placed, and can combine with the regular wilds to produce some huge wins. This slot beat my expectations – both the standard play and bonus feature have some innovative extras, and the slot looks great to boot.
It is the combination of graphics and sounds which made Western Belles stand out for me. The galloping noises, whip cracks and slow music taken straight from movie soundtracks do not dominate like they do in many slots. The atmosphere in the free spins bonus round is completely different. Here a piano plays, just like in the old saloons – which livens things up no end.
During the bonus feature, the reels change colour and you’ll get a new Belle as a wild. This time 2 complete reels are wild for every spin (you start with 5). I am sure you can imagine that this does produce a lot of big wins.
