Western Themed Slots by Software Providers

There was a time when the Western was a popular genre for novels and Hollywood films. The outlaw wanting to loot the bank, the sheriff who always arrived late, the quick draw who ensured that things worked out right and the saloon girl who was at ease with both the good and the evil were iconic stereotypes. This genre is not so much in vogue now, but for the diehard Western fans, online gaming software providers have some exciting slot games.

The software provider Microgaming offers a slot game titled Sunset Showdown at its online casinos like All Slots, Platinum Play and River Belle. The reels are set against the orange evening sky. The thematic symbols portray typical western items like pistols, cash bag, hat, boots and a cowboy. However the protagonist of this slot game is the cowgirl. The cowgirl is the wild symbol, which doubles payouts, offers the highest fixed jackpot and shows some nifty animations. The Sunset Showdown Baddy feature is very exciting. The cowgirl marches down the main street shooting the bad guys. Random prizes are awarded for each Baddy shot. The feature concludes when five Baddies have been shot.

The Cryptologic Western theme slot game is Silver Star. It can be played at online casinos like InterCasino and VIP Casino. The symbols on the reels include wagon, saloon, dancing show girls, horse, gun belts, Wanted posters, desert tumbleweed, snakes and the skull of a dead cow. The sheriff is the wild symbol and the Silver Star is the scatter symbol. There are excellent audio effects like sounds of firing bullets and Western music. The bonus game on the second screen is an interactive shooting gallery. Ducks fly all over the screen and the guns also moves randomly. Players have to shoot when a duck is in the line of fire. Players are given five bullets and win bonus credits depending on the number of ducks shot.

Western Wildness is the slot game from the software provider Rival Gaming. It can be played at online casinos like Sloto' Cash and Ruby Royal. Though the crafting of the symbols has a comic touch the Rival Gaming stamp is evident, especially in the use of pastel colors. The introductory clip shows the cowboy, cowgirl and the masked bandit demonstrating their shooting skills. The other symbols on the reels are cowboy boots, a bag full of dollars, a sheriff's badge, a box of bullets, a horse shoe and a shotgun. The bonus game on the second screen displays two rows of bottles. The player gets six bullets. He has to aim at the bottle with the mouse and shoot. Prizes are awarded for the number of bottles hit.

Playtech online casinos like Casino Tropez, Play United and Omni Casino offer a Western theme slot game called Wanted Dead or Alive. The central characters are the Bearded Outlaw, the Mustachioed Outlaw and the Masked Outlaw. All of them get animated when in winning combinations. Cash sack, dynamite sticks and revolver are also important symbols. In the bonus game on the second screen the players have to choose a bandit. They then have to shoot the bandit who is hiding in the street. The number of shots taken by the player determines the bonus win.
