The full name of this game is a mouthful: the Golden Stallion Ultraways Free Spins slot. But trust us when we say this name is well earned.
Nestled in the grand canyons of the Wild West lies the fabled Golden Stallion slot with its 5 reels, 20 paylines and high volatility with up to 6,000x your bet max win.
This horse holds the key to your fortune if only you can tame him long enough to get the wins you deserve.
The problem, and the fun, is in the chase of this wild beast. Will his herd come and face you head-on? Will it run rings around you? Or maybe a little bit of both?
This is a volatile slot by Microgaming through their Northern Light studios. Don’t let it fool you with its pretty ponies, you are here for one hell of a rodeo and the theme matches the feel of the game perfectly.
So how do you catch the Golden Stallion? You get 3 scatters on the reels. Then you’ll go from daytime to night time and the stallion will roam to the front of the reels.
With a few stamps of his horseshoes, he will split some of the spaces on the reels giving you up to 196,608 ways to win if you manage to turn every symbol four ways. But you won’t, mostly you’ll get around 1,000 to 1,500 ways to win.
And that’s still very generous, because during the Golden Stallion slot Ultraways free spins the symbols pay simply by being next to each other. And those cases that have been split? They always show the exact same symbol on every one of your 10 bonus spins.
We’ve seen wins of nearly 200x our bet on this feature, and as we said, we didn’t hit anything close to the triple digits of ways to wins. And we didn’t care.
Because considering the star of the show is the Ultraways Free Spins from the title, you rarely get to see them. We had to take over 200 spins each time just to catch the feature once. Don’t get us wrong, it was worth it, but just as frustrating.
Thank-fully what you’ll find is that much like the Solar Temple slot, you get mechanics in the base game that makes you almost forget that you haven’t caught the free spins in a while.
And that’s the fact that every 10 to 20 spins, around 3 to 10 cases highlighted by the stampeding horses will give you stacks of mystery symbols over the 20 paylines. Do they pay anywhere near as much as in the Ultraways? No. But it’s still fun enough to keep you entertained until you catch the big Golden Stallion slot wins.

Wild: The 'Wild' symbol will replace any other symbol on the reels to create a win. During the golden spin, the wild is worth more on the paytable too.
Golden Spin: As soon as you load the video slot, the game will decide how many spins it will take for you to get to the Golden Spin. This usually changes from somewhere between 10 and 20 spins. As you spin down, the counter counts down, and up to 5 galloping horses can appear across the screen. They might gallop by, or they might stamp over the reel, highlighting one of the positions on the reels.
Once the counter has counted all the way down to zero, you get the golden spin. All highlighted position now become a random golden mystery symbol. The golden symbols are worth more than the normal paytable symbols, and if any non-gold symbol is also on the reels (ie. not in the highlighted space) it will be upgraded to a golden symbol if it can be part of a win on the paylines.
Ultraways Free Spins: 3 scatters will trigger 10 free spins. But first, you have to choose between the Horseshoe symbol which will reveal how many Ultraways you've won. You can win up to 196,608 ways to win here and get anything from 3 to 9 of a kind symbol wins. Wins are won, regardless of size, when the symbols land from left to right anywhere on the reel.
There are issues with this Golden Stallion slot on mobile. The fact it's better played in portrait than landscape is definitely one of them, and that the free spins are hard to find frustrated us equally.
Even without the free spins, knowing hat we have that Golden Spin to look forward to allowing us to get excited about every base game spin. Granted we quickly realised that any decent win happens on the Golden spins and the really eye-popping ones in the free spins.
But this is a volatile game after all, what do you expect? To ride this horse the first time and not buck and fall over in this dangerous Wild West slot theme?
If you are willing to keep trying what you'll find in this Golden Stallion Ultraways Free Spins slot on mobile is something a little bit different with huge wins of up to 6,000x your bet.
