As cowboy movies are usually old ones, so is this game. Western Frontier plays with just 15 paylines, it saves a bit of money in the long run, and is also my favourite betting size too - I always tend to start my play with $0.15 bets for games that have 20 or more paylines. That Horse is the Wild symbol in the game, but it doesn't pay anything for itself, nor does it double any wins with it, except during the free spins play. The Horseshoe is the Scatter symbol, paying a low 66.6x the total bet for getting 5 of them, and triggers the Indian Feature game with 8 free spins - only wins with a Wild symbol are doubled. The other symbols pay from 40x down to 6.6x the total bet, making the paytable a low one.
Getting 3 or more Horseshoe Scatters during the free spins awards a retrigger of 8 more free spins. During the free spins, each appearing Horse is collected into a counter at the top, to determine the free spins number and multiplier for the following Cowboy Feature game, from 8 free spins with a 2x multiplier, up to 16 free spins with a 6x multiplier, depending on the total number of Horses collected. Unfortunately, only wins with any Wild symbol gets this multiplier, and wins without any Wild symbol do not get multiplied, so this sucks!
Anyway, I've played Western Frontier on numerous occasions, trying to get a better win than what I have gotten so far, which is only 124x my bet amount, but never getting it. Even getting those 16 free spins with a 6x multiplier couldn't produce any better wins, so this much was disappointing indeed. Perhaps Western Frontier is never meant to produce big wins, what with its low paytable, so that didn't keep me interested in the game any longer. Too bad!
