Win Big with Big Bucks Bandits Megaways
wed 24 feb 2021
There are some slot genres that will be around for as long as gambling itself, and one of them is the Western. Maybe it's because cowboys used to love playing poker back in the day. Or it could be that we think of casinos as modern versions of the old swing-door saloons. Yet another possibility is that stories of the Old West remind us of simpler times when the world just didn't care about celebrity breakups or Black Friday. Whatever the case, the Western genre is here to stay, and Big Bucks Bandits Megaways is one of its latest additions.
Big Bucks Bandits Megaways Format
This is a new slot developed by Reel Play in its role as an Yggdrasil Gaming Masters studio. It has six reels, and initially, these have a 4, 5, 5, 5, 5, 4 layout. Of course, this game features the Megaways mechanic
from Big Time Gaming, so the number of rows on each reel will change from spin to spin. Each reel can have as many as seven rows, and a fully expanded set will give you 117,649 ways to win
The game itself takes place against a canyon background, and the reels are presented within a frame of wood and gunmetal. Symbols on the reels include what we assume to be a cask of moonshine, a buffalo skull, a cactus, a cowboy hat, cowboy boots, a pair of revolvers, a horse, a bandit, a female character and the cowboy hero. A Sheriff's star serves as a wild symbol, and a sack of gold coins serves as a scatter.
Big Bucks Bandits Megaways is a good-looking slot, and the rich audio content adds plenty of atmosphere. If you like the appearance of old-school Western comics and dime novel covers, the chances are high that you'll love the look of this game.
Jackpot Respins Bank Heist
The main feature in this game is the Jackpot Feature Bank Heist. This is triggered by getting six scatter symbols on the reels, and it will award you three respins. Those respins are represented by three bullets to the left of the reels. The scatter symbols will remain in place, and your task is to respin the reels to see if you can add more to the collection.
Each respin will cost you a bullet, but if you land another scatter symbol at any point, you'll get a reload for three more respins. Every scatter symbol landed in this part of the game will show a cash value.
You can also land trophy symbols in this Bank Heist round, and those too will reload your respins. There are four different trophy symbols in play, and these are associated with four different jackpots that can be won in the game, as follows:
- Bronze Jackpot is worth 10 times your bet.
- Silver Jackpot is worth 50 times your bet.
- Gold Jackpot is worth 250 times your bet.
- Platinum Jackpot is worth 1,000 times your bet.
When you are finally out of bullets, this Bank Heist ends. The value of the symbols that you have on the reels will be totalled up, and you will proceed to the Double Cross Gamble Feature.
Double Cross Gamble Feature
When the Bank Heist round has concluded, you'll be taken to a Double Cross Gamble Feature. This is presented as a showdown between the Hero and the Bandit. Between the two gunslingers is a large wheel with grey and green segments.
You can either collect your Bank Heist winnings without gambling, or you can spin the wheel to try and multiply your success. If you gamble and the wheel stops on a green segment, your gamble will pay off. You can gamble repeatedly and multiply your win by up to five times. Of course, you can also collect your winnings at any point.
