Gunslinger's Gold is a 2015 slot by Nektan that takes us on an adventure to the Wild West.
It's a five-reel slot with fifteen paylines that features a free games bonus and wild substitutions, and the highest-paying symbol can help you net up to five hundred times your bet. The symbols that the slot uses include cowboys, sheriffs, "Wanted" posters, and poker cards, and when combined with the western music, evoke images of gentlemen in ten-gallon hats supping moonshine in saloons amid the occasional bar brawl.

Appearance and Sound Effects
Gunslinger's Gold welcomes you to the Wild West, where you find yourself on the main street of a mid-western town in front of the main entrance to a saloon.
A cactus plant sits beside the door underneath an old-fashioned lantern, and "Wanted" posters are nailed to the bullet-ridden wall on the right-hand side of the reels. As you begin to spin the reels, a country music soundtrack that's similar to those which feature in old cowboy films starts to play in the background.
The popular westerns which made iconic actors like John Wayne and Clint Eastwood household names are an obvious inspiration for the paytable symbols, which include a sheriff's badge, a cowboy smoking a pipe, a bag of loot, "Wanted" posters, five poker cards (10, J, Q, K, and A), a cowboy boot, the game logo (which is a silhouette of a horse rider against the setting sun), and a bull.
Bonuses and Special Features
Although it only comes with one bonus feature, the free spins bonus in Gunslinger's Gold is one of the most generous we've ever seen. You can trigger it by landing three, four or five of the "Spins" wanted posters anywhere on the reels, and in return, you get thirty free games. There's no cap on how many times you can retrigger the bonus feature, so if the scatter symbols keep rolling in, you could notch up a plethora of free games on the house.
The bull wild symbol is another special feature that can help you win big as it can replace any symbol except the "Wanted" poster to create winning combinations.
Gunslinger's Gold uses five reels, three rows of symbols, and twenty-five non-fixed paylines, and has a high RTP (Return to Player Rate) of 96.6%. The game lets you create winning combinations using matching symbols in succession from the leftmost reel to the rightmost reel.
The game is designed to work with desktops, laptops, mobile phones, and tablets, and includes mobile-friendly game controls when played on mobile devices.
While Gunslinger's Gold isn't a feature-rich slot, its theme holds universal appeal, and both its top payout and RTP (Theoretical Return to Player) are very generous indeed. The simple rules make it a great slots game for beginners as well as online slots enthusiasts who are looking for new titles to play. Plus, there's an excellent bounty to play for with the free spins feature which can be retriggered multiple times.
