Online slots games
become ever more interesting when you get the chance to access their special features. Fortunately, Gold Rush Showdown manages to offer these up to you in several different ways. First of all, there’s the game’s wild symbol. This comes in the image of the red bull. As a wild symbol, this one will stand in for all other icons on the reels. The only exception to this rule are the game’s scatter offerings. If five wild icons come into view on a winning bet line, you will receive a maximum return of 10,000 times your overall bet.
As far as the scatters go, there are several of these. The first of which comes in the form of the Prospector old man. Scatter icons can show up in any location and still reward you with a pay out. They multiply your overall wager by a random amount, depending upon the amount of these icons in view. If five show up, the multiplier that you receive will be anywhere between times 40 and times 200. Then, help the Prospector and strike it rich by digging up locations on his map. You get a single dig for each of the scatter icons on the reels. If five scatters show up, you get five digs on the map. Then, you’ll get 40 coins for each chunk of gold that you find!
There’s also the addition of the Cowboy scatter. He will only show up on the first reel and whenever a bandit shows up in an adjacent position, you’ll activate a bonus round. If the Bandito icon shows up, you will trigger the In Reels Gunfight. This is an automatic gunfight where prizes are given for each of the banditos that you manage to shoot. If you manage to strike down four banditos, you will receive 50 coins for each of them.
Should you bring the cowboy into view on reel one and the Bandit King into view in an adjacent position, the Showdown Bonus Game begins. In this game, you will first shoot as many banditos as possible before facing the Bandit King. If you beat him, you will be the winner of his loot. You have the chance to play the game manually, or allow the game to auto fire instead. After six shots, the gun becomes inactive for a second whilst it reloads. There are unlimited bullets though. Furthermore, if the bandit king is carrying three diamonds, you will win the progressive jackpot total!
