Malta-based online casino games developer Swintt has launched its latest title which has the distinction of being the very first to feature XtraWays, a new and unique proprietary game mechanic. Transporting players to the Wild West, Lone Rider XtraWays is the innovative developer‘s take on a wildly popular theme.
In addition to wilds, scatter pays, and an extra spins bonus with max win ways potential for all spins, which can possibly lead to wins of up to 1,541 times the stake, the game also offers up to 262,144 ways to win!
The highly volatile, 6-reel, 3-row video slot is set in an old western town where the main street is lined with what you’d typically see back in the pioneer days; a saloon, a bank, livery, and in the distance, a water tower. Players will need to land at least three symbols on adjacent reels, from left to right starting only on reel one, to earn wins.
Players are able to increase potential wins by collecting XtraWays icons that randomly drop down across all reels. And when they do, the reels expand and contract depending on which symbols land.
The innovative game mechanic allows players to see how big the reels are going to be on the next spin while the counter located on top of each of the 6 reels, displays the number of symbols that will appear on the respective reel for the following spin. The number of symbols can grow to a max of eight, depending on the XtraWays symbols that land.
If all that isn’t enough, players that land three, four, five, or six Scatters during base gameplay, are awarded 10, 15, 20, or 25 extra spins, respectively. The exciting feature starts with the same reel layout that activated the feature, however, if a player manages to land an XtraWays symbol, the counter for the following spin increases by the corresponding number on the symbol.
Unlike base gameplay, the overhead counters do not decrease and all 6 reels can reveal as many as 8 symbols for the entire round of extra spins.
Lone Rider XtraWays is designed in HTML5, so in addition to desktop, there is a mobile version. It also offers three different RTP settings, with a default of 96.13 percent. Engaging gameplay combined with exceptional design creates an immersive experience for players.
In an official press release, Chief Commercial Officer for Swintt said they are always looking to “push the boundaries and develop features and mechanics that deliver new and exciting player experiences,” and with XtraWays he says they have done just that.
“The anticipation really builds as players watch the XtraWays™ symbols land and the counter on each reel rise ahead of the next spin. And with up to 262,144 ways to win, there is plenty of big win action to be enjoyed.”
The CCO added…
….Lone Rider is a great game to debut XtraWays, and it is their take on a hugely popular theme that they have been able to elevate with their innovative new mechanic. “We look forward to seeing players journey to the Wild West and lasso some potentially big wins.”
