Grab yourself some good WiFi to play this very graphical mobile slot. Because this The True Sheriff slot is a real prima dona.
First things first, as our our title suggests, if you don’t have good mobile connection or WiFi, don’t even try opening this intensely heavy mobile slot. You’ll be more frustrated than a sinner in church. The loading time of the in game bonus features will make you want to rip your hair out. The lagged loading of big wins, free spins screen and bonus video rounds will suddenly make you want to watch endless re-runs of American Idols as it might be more entertaining. It’s a frustrating process.
So here is your first and one bad point. Other than that, the True Sheriff mobile slot is actually kind of decent. The volatility is low but the return to player rate is 97.03%, so your wins will be small but consistent. The True Sheriff slot machine is about entertainment, bonus features hitting every three to four spins, bouncing bullets across the screen and a click me bonus feature which is simple, but effective in giving you a high potential pay off. It is, by far, more impressive online, but on mobile it still works.
Thank-fully, this is the first BetSoft casino game that has both quickspin and auto-spin. And if you use both, as well as the skip button, you’ll find yourself enjoying this video slot far more than you thought. This is mainly because the bonus features hit so frequently, especially the random wilds, that if you were to wait for the video graphics to load each time, you’ll be going slightly crazy again (refer back to our comments about ripping out hair).
This is a marked improvement on the BetSoft range of mobile slots in terms of the functionality of the slot, but still doesn’t hit enough of our buttons to get quite the full marks. They are still trying to fit everything in from the online slot to mobile, without considering that on the smaller screen, the gameplay needs to be smoother and not as constantly interrupted.
Not the worst, not the best.

Wild Guns Random Wilds: When the Gun symbol appears anywhere on the centre reel, the Sheriff will pop up from his seat and start shooting at your screen, turning random symbols into wilds. The first few times it's cute, the following 100 times you'll skip right through it. This feature is probably the one that will keep you constant company during your mobile game play.
Free Spins: Get 3 or more Sheriff badges on consecutive reels to get between 10 and 15 free spins. During free spins a special counter will be present for each reel. Each time the badge symbol occurs on a reel during free spins, the associated counter for that reel will increase by the count of 1. At the end of the free spins, these will payout a bonus amount. How much you ask? In all honesty, we couldn't figure out how it does the calculation, but the couple of times we did it, it doubled our overall win from the free spins.
The Showdown Bonus Round: If the gun symbols appears between the bad guy and the sheriff on lines 1, 2 or 3, the bonus round will begin. BetSoft call this round 'cinematic' and no doubt it is online, but on mobile its soooooooooooo slooooooooow. The video behind the very simple heads or tails game is pretty, but makes this round less than fit for mobile. You have to guess heads or tails, with each correct guessing getting you up one of the five levels where you get a top prize. you get two misses and you then get the money at the level you ended with.
Double Up Feature: A decent double your money, red card or black card, guessing game, it's a fairly decent way of trying to get wins that are below your overall bet, back up to a win.
This True Sheriff mobile slot has some great gun-slinging bonus features. It pays out often, it keeps you entertained, it has a host of in game features. What's not to love?
Well, for one, you end up being massively grateful for the skip button, continually pressing on it, forcing the slot to move on to the next spin. If it wasn't there this video slot would be incredibly frustrating. As it is, if you don't have fast internet we would definitely not recommend The True Sheriff mobile slot, unless you like really really really slow spins so you don't spend a lot of money. It's a strategy.
Other than that, if you don't mind having to keep skipping, the graphics are pretty interesting and and the features are plentiful, even if not particularly hard hitting.
Fun but we just wish the game-play could have been smoother.
