Slot Overview, Math Model, & Paytable
When Cowboys Gold loads, players find a 5X3, ten payline grid set inside what appears to be a dimly-lit cowboy roadhouse. It looks like Pragmatic Play wants us to imagine ourselves gambling here, probably sipping on cheap rye whiskey. Whatever the case, the slot is available to play on any device, offering stakes that range from 0.10 to 100 Euros. It runs on high volatility, meaning you have to work as hard as Stone Mountain does on a first-person shooter to get something out of it. Mind you, an above-average 96.5% RTP rating does little to help in the short-run.
Gameplay-wise, it is just a matter of the yoozh. Except for the top-payer, which needs two, all the other symbols require three to five-of-a-kind to trigger a winner on any of the available ten paylines. And speaking of symbols, there are no surprises when you pry open the paytable to be greeted by blackjack fillers, a boot spur, whiskey, a horseshoe, and the gun that won the West as the regular payers. The second last-mentioned is the top payer, racking up impressive rewards of up to 75X.
The Cowboys are your Best Allies!
Appearing alongside the regular payers are seven cowboys donned in Stetsons. Besides dishing out rewards ranging from 2-20X for three to five of-a-kind, the septet can each show up with bounties of up to 100X, which get cashed whenever the icon marked ‘renegade’ lands on reel 5.
Summing up Cowboys Gold’s features is a bonus round triggered by landing three bonus symbols or two bonus symbols and a renegade icon on the fifth reel. Ten free spins are awarded initially, during which collected bounties will be subjected to an X1 multiplier, which increases to X2, X3, and X5 on the first, second, and third bonus retrigger, respectively.
Cowboys Gold — Our Verdict
There is not much to say about this slot. Pragmatic Play has only rehashed what we have seen before in Western-themed slots to create a game that will mostly favor the hard-goers of the slotsverse. That’s just about it.
