The One Armed Bandit goes above and beyond other wild west themed games out there. No wonder either, Yggdrasil took it’s time putting together something epic and unique. They will have you on some serious winnings streaks. Sure, there are already some western style games that are offering big payouts.
The problem with many of them is those potential payouts have never actually been won. Their volatility is off the charts. I introduce a game with a happy medium of good payouts and not such a high volatility. The variance of this game is high, which is going to give you great potential for wins. Yggdrasil Gaming is taking a shot at creating their first western-themed game. They took their time representing their brand the right way and it shows.
What we found is that while there aren’t a lot of features in The One Armed Bandit but the ones that exist will give you some nice winnings. If there are scatters symbols that land, they give you more spins, this can then get you x5 multipliers.
When you’re in the free spin feature, multipliers can explode to bring you x20 more for your stake. This is where the game really shows it’s worth, offering you large payouts.
Bet as little as 10 cents per spin or as much as €40.
Well thought out, the backdrop has all the characteristics of a cowboy theme. The frame of the game is made from wooden gallows. The music adds to the ambiance too. The higher paying symbols of The One Armed Bandit includes the type of things you’d expect a cowboy to have on him such as: Cowboy hat, Whisky flask, Guns, Spurs.
The guns give you x80 more than your stake when you get 5 on a pay line.
This will cause the re-spin feature to trigger. Wherever the bandit lands, there will be a star that looks like it’s off a sheriff’s shirt over top of that reel. You then get a re-spin. While you’re getting another spin, the scatters that are marked with the star will then be replaced with wilds that give you x5 more than your stake.
Here are the wins based on where the scatters land:
- If the scatter lands on the 1st or 3rd reel, you get 2 more spins, along with an opportunity to get x5 the win on your original stake (thanks to those multiplier wilds).
- If you get another scatter on the 2nd reel with the re-spin feature, you’ll get another spin. You also get the opportunity for the x5 wild to land on the 1st, 2nd, or 3rd reels.
- Collect all of the 5 stars within the re-spin feature and you’ll get into the free spins features.
Once in this feature, you have more opportunities to win. The x5 multiplier could land on all reels if you’re lucky. There could be a one armed bandit bonus that shows up. This will give you another spin and puts you one step further towards the meter in the game. If you get 2-4 of them, your wild will become further multiplied (x10/x20). In the feature, you can get x8,000 your stake.
A well thought out game with some decent wins.
The game isn’t as exciting as others but if you’re playing to win, it’s worth it.
