Someone must love assigning western theme to slots at TopGame because Fandango actually got 3 versions and 3 separate products around the subject so we can play with classic slot machines with 1 or 3 paylines and with a 15-payline multi-line slot too. It’s not a complaint at all because I think they did a great job designing their interface and making attractive products. The 15-line version is a very decent graphical work and even though we can’t find here anything that would really make us excited but we’re dropped in an authentic environment where we can spend our times with sheriff badger, bullet, gun, cowboy hat, cactus symbols among the others while card elements were left out from this game which is absolutely not a problem. I like the brown colour domination around the reels (it reflects wooden made fence) and the full black background which really fit well to the theme and the not too colorful symbols. It’s an overall decent pictorial work which not offering too much but what it does is correctly worked out.
At this 15-payline slot the Crossed Guns symbol can provide the best paying 5 of a kind type win when 10.000 coins are credited and surprisingly this is the best quality what the game segment offers which is not a good sign. The Sheriff Badger acts as a Wild but it only can replace other symbols in a winning combination without the power to multiply it or having any own paying ability.
These kind of limited functions are valid for free games too where not additional multiplier value is in use and the won 10, 20 or 40 free spins by appearing 3, 4 or 5 Dynamite symbols during normal game mode are really played with the same combination as the triggering bet was. My usual returns here is no more than 10-15 times of my total bet and playing the game with €1.50 there are times when the won amount didn’t reach the €10 plateau so I think I can safely say that this is a very poor rewarding side game.
This statement doesn’t change in regards to bonus game where first we have to pick a packet of bullets which we predict contain the most bullets and then we have to shoot down some targets in a bar. The number of bullets (shooting attempts) sometimes is no more than 4 and the bonus points that every successfully destroyed objects hide are around 20-200 bonus points. Unfortunately, the collected bonus points are not multiplied by total bet, they’re calculated rather by line bet and the final won amount most of the times doesn’t live up to the expectation but it’s no wonder if I take into consideration that the most collectible points around 850. Basically, using the mentioned bet the maximum I can win here is €85 which in my opinion is far from being satisfying potential.
Generally, this very limited rewarding system is applied to the whole game segment so neither the wins during base game nor the awarded money at features and bonuses are not those what a player want to see and despite of this bad payout habits the slot simple can’t be so entertaining and usable than it should be. This really influences in bad ways the overall gaming experience and while the slot creates a very solid atmosphere but it is ruined by other parts of the game.
I’m sadly saying that this slot is more of a bad game than being average product because of the mentioned reasons and I think till the rewarding system won’t be corrected the slot can’t be anything else just another product on the market what a little bit messed up.
