Don’t be fooled by the pretty colours, this Wild West Gold slot game is highly volatile and highly profitable with a top win of 10,000x your bet and lots of sticky wilds.
We know we’ve just given this Wild West Gold slot review 5 stars but it comes with a warning: this is a very Risky game you’re playing. Ie. this is a high stakes poker game and it may feel at times like everyone else has aces up their sleeves, except you.
But that’s part of the charm of this Pragmatic Play slot machine: you know that the outlaws your playing against will turn against you as soon as help you rob this cash-rich slot.
The four high paying symbols are your partners: 2 men, 3 women, all shifty looking. Then you have bags of gold, 6 shooters and Ace to 10 symbols on 5×4 wooden reels, giving you 40 glorious paylines.
You only get a wild symbol on reels 2, 3 and 4. Which isn’t much, but then every single one of them will give you a minimum of. a 2x multiplier if used on a win, up to 5x multiplier if you are really lucky.
So those wilds are like gold dust. You need them to make this payable and all those paylines work to your advantage. And in the base game, there’s not much of that happening to be fair.
This Wild West Gold slot is high variance, so it can feel a little slow at times, not unlike the other big hit the NetEnt Dead or Alive 2 slot.
But, then you hit the free spins bonus round and it will soon get a place in your heart.
When we read the paytable of Wild West Gold online slot, we saw that during the free spin bonus every wild symbol stays sticky for the duration of the bonus.
Which is great, we love slots with sticky wild wins, but we also know that it means you don’t always get many. And that’s ok, that’s the nature of volatile games.
What Pragmatic Play have done here, which is smart, is added little stars to all the symbols. These symbols turn normal symbols into scatters – and just 2 will add +4 spins to your bonus game.
So whilst you start with 8, you rarely play less than 12 Wild West Gold slot free spins. And those wilds, let’s not forget, have multipliers, which is more than can be said for the Leprechaun Goes Wild slot game, and other machines with sticky wilds.

Wild: The Sheriff's badge is the wild symbols and substitutes for all other symbols except scatter. It only shows up on reels 2, 3 and 4, but will come with a multiplier of 2x, 3x, or 5x.
Scatters and Free Spins: The Grand Canyon is the scatter symbol, and when it lands on reels 1, 3 and 5 it triggers 8 free spin bonus rounds in this Wild West Gold slot game.
During the bonus games, all the wilds remain sticky on screen, with the random multiplier assigned.
The star symbol can also show up as an overlay on other symbols and aware more free spins:
If during the free spins, you walk away with less than 10x your total bet, the machine will top up your wins to ensure you walk with at least 10x your bet wins.
We hate to whisper the words in case passionate fans lynch us but... we kind prefer this Wild West Gold slot on mobile to even the original Dead or Alive slot.
Why? Because whilst you don't get as many wilds, and the payable doesn't look as generous, those multipliers really bring in the bounty from those reward posters.
With a max win of 10,000x your bet it also has bigger wins, and there's something exciting about knowing how easy it would be to keep triggering more and more free spin games, without sacrificing winning symbols for scatters.
In short, this is a volatile Wild West slot machine that promises lots of gold, but much like days of old, may end up spitting you out in the desert with nothing but some tars and feathers for your troubles.
