Set on 5×4 reels with 1024 ways to win, this slightly old-fashioned Wild Showdown slot gives you three bonus features, each with its own twist to the Wild West slot genre.
And the twist is not the slot theme, which is as generic as it comes. You stand in a saloon, with the gangster, showgirl, and cowboy fighting it out over a bottle of whisky and Ace to 9 high card symbols.
At heart, this Wild Showdown slot machine is simple enough. With a mid to high volatility, you get a huge top win of 12,500x your bet but have to sacrifice the RTP set at a much lower 94.02%.
The 1024 ways to win does create plenty of wins, but it’s the bonus symbols that light up the reels. The scatter alone will give you 3 free spins, but the scatter with either of the wild gun chambers will trigger 8 free spins with extra wilds and/or extra multipliers. That’s how you get the big wins.
The reason is, that having that many ways to win are just an excuse to give you a poor paytable so you can get lots of little wins but nothing to fill the coffers. In other words, you are losing slowly rather than winning quickly.
The same is true of this Wild Showdown mobile slot, but you do have a couple of helpful symbols that elevate the base game. These are the gun symbols on reels 2, and 4.
When they show up, they randomly add up to 10x multiplier on all wins or up to 5 wilds onto the screen. That 10x multiplier can really help keep you going until you hit the free spins.
If you catch the scatter on reel 3, you’ll get to play 3 Wild Showdown slot free spins with one sticky wild on the reels. Not that impressive, we know.
But, if you catch that scatter with one or both of the guns, the guns stay sticky. This time around, you can get either multipliers or extra wilds on each spin, maybe even both.
Catching 2 guns and a scatter is rare, but not so rare that we haven’t seen it happen in 300 spins. This Wild Showdown slot game does require a little patience, but then again, it is closely related to the Double Buffalo Spirit slot and the More Monkeys slot game.
A decent volatile wild west affair that fans of SG interactive will enjoy, especially as it has a low minimum bet of 0.20 a spin.

Wilds: The Sheriff badge wild symbols appears on reels 2-5 and replaces any other symbol on the reels to create a win on this 1024 ways to win slot online.
Multiplier Gun Wilds: There are two gun wild symbols on the reels.
The Multiplier Gun chamber is a wild symbol and only appears on reel 2. Before it does, the chamber will spin and reveal a multiplier of 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x, 6x, or 10x. The multiplier is applied to all wins on the reels, not just if it's used as a wild.
The Wild Gun Chamber is also wild and only appears on reel 4. The numbers on show are 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5. Whatever it lands on, that's how many wild symbols will be added to the reels randomly.
Scatter and Free Spin Bonus: The bonus gold symbol on reel 3 will trigger 3 free spins. This scatters now turns wild and stays for the whole 3 spins.
Scatters, Gun, and Free Spin Bonus: If you catch the bonus gold symbol on reel three and one or both of the gun chambers on reels 2 or/and 4, you trigger 8 free spins. The scatter will now disappear, but the guns will be left behind and spin a multiplier or/and add wild symbols on each bonus spin.
We couldn't help but like this Wild Showdown slot, with its gun-popping feature giving you both wilds, multipliers, and plenty of hope for more.
But once you get into the swing of the reels, you'll appreciate the three bonus features and how each can give you a unique experience, both in the base game and the free spins.
Will it get lost amongst all the other great Wild West slots out there? Probably. But we certainly wouldn't be disappointed if we found ourselves here playing for that top win.
Review by Lucky Mobile Slots, last updated: September 23, 2022 - Rating
Wild Showdown has a low 94.07% RTP, well below average for many real money slots online.
The Wild Showdown slot has a maximum win of 12,500x your total bet. At the minimum bet of 0.20 per spin is 2,500 in cash and at the maximum bet of 8 per spin is 100,000 in cash.
Wild Showdown is a medium volatility slot game offering a mix of small and medium wins, where much like other slots the big wins will be hard to trigger.
