Gold Canyon - The minute you open the game to start playing, you’ll be seriously impressed by the mechanics. The graphics are incredible, and it makes you feel like you’re playing right in a casino. The cowboy is larger than life in the game. The symbols are stunning, and the reels move quickly. There is a cool story that goes with the game. It’s based on the wild west with the story of a cowboy who has a jaded past. He looks tough with the cigar in his mouth and all.
Underneath it all, he’s a good guy, protecting the people that live in Gold Canyon from the nasty outlaws. They are responsible for expanding the reel. Can you help this jaded cowboy fight off the bad guys while getting some great wins? We can say for sure that BetSoft is bang on when they say their games are true cinematic gaming. The feeling you get from the game is that could be a classic western stand-off at any point. Play it and see for yourself.
The game is a 5x3 and has all the action you can handle. This comes in the way of some standard features but of course with a western styled twist. The reason that the outlaws would find Gold Canyon so enticing is because there are treasures to be had. These will come into the game play from time to time but it’s not nearly as exciting as the rogue cowboy showing up. When he fills the reels, there is a bunch of yee haws to be heard in the background. The music also gets more exciting.
Let’s talk about the maximum winning in the game. In just one spin, there’s potential to win over x4,000 your stake. There are jackpot wins, big wins, mega wins that can pay out plenty of cash. Whenever a special feature is prompted, it will alert you with an additional information box. It allows you to get a better scope of the game if you’ve just jumped on to see what it’s all about.
The man of mystery that shows up on the reels is the onset of the wilds in the game. When you get at least three chunks of dynamite on the reels, it earns you some spins for free.

The game itself has a lot of details that truly bring it to the era before the West was won. Within the game, the background and symbols all look rustic like an old saloon.
The HP symbols in the game that make it look very western include:
- A nugget of gold.
- A “Wanted” poster
- A horse fit for a cowboy.
- A lantern.
- A badge from the Sheriff.
- A horseshoe.
You also get a mix of the royal flush and other cards in the deck. The highest of the symbols is the gold nugget and can pay out up to 10,000 coins. You can get this max if the nugget is five on one of the pay lines. Take note, your average bet for every spin would have to be $20.
The theme is great, and they hit the feeling perfectly. There are great features and even within the basic game, there are decent wins to be had.
The free spin feature might throw you off a bit if you’re used to the conventional slots.
