If you play online slot games regularly, you are likely to be very familiar with the concept of the Wild West.
One of the most used themes for slot games that there is, the popularity of slots based in the Wild West is not letting up (the worldwide acclaim for NetEnt’s Wild Wild West: The Great Train Heist earlier this year is evidence of that) so it’s no surprise that the idea is still being used regularly.
Playtech have added their own take on the concept with Heart of the Frontier, which takes a different approach than most, in that all the characters here are women.
About the slot
A five reel, 20 payline slot playable on all compatible desktop, mobile, and tablet devices, Heart of the Frontier is based in a dusty Wild West town, with the reels appearing on a wooden noticeboard.
Symbols on the reels include a cowgirl, a Native American, and a lady of the night, with a sheriff’s badge and a horse shoe also appearing alongside filler symbols from 9 to A.
There are two wilds here, the Sheriff and the Bandit are both wild here, and will expand to fill a whole reel. They will then shift one place (to the right for the Sheriff and the left for the Bandit) until they fall off the reels, leading to some huge wins if you’re lucky.
If you trigger the Showdown Free Spins feature, you will receive five free spins with both wilds fixed in place, if you land more wilds during this feature, they’ll expand and stick too. After the feature, there will be a shootout between the two wilds, and the winner will remain on the reels when you return to the base game.
A unique and charming slot with some excellent features, Playtech have made a cracker of a slot with Heart of the Frontier.
