Deadwood Online Slots: Gameplay & Review

Deadwood Online Slots: Gameplay & Review

12 January 2021 Off By Rochelle Royal

Deadwood is an amazing slot of NoLimit City, with Wild West theme, towering variety and a lot more spectacle. Yes, the slot is very similar to Tombstone. The theme and look are the same and the variance is extremely high. NoLimit City already had a lot of success with Tombstone and Deadwood is the logical sequel.

But this might even be an even better version of it. Graphically, the slot is fantastic, but the features are no less great. Insane! We would love to come back to that in detail.

What is special is that you have 2 different “Buy a Bonus” options here. With the first, you can immediately access the Free Spins for 71x the original bet. You have access to the Shoot Out Free Spins for no less than 750x the bet.

In terms of prize potential, this slot machine is just as intense as the online slot Dead or Alive. The maximum prize is no less than 13,950x the stake.

How to Play Deadwood Slot

The basic game has 5 reels with a 3x4x4x4x3 setup and here the win all ways principle applies, meaning there are 576 ways to win.

Deadwood Reels

The premium symbols are the gold bars, a gold pocket watch, a bag of dollars, whiskey and a gun. The lower symbols (which can turn into a wild with the dd Shoot-Out Feature) are the usual card symbols: A, K, Q, J and 10.

In the basic game, you have two features that are very spectacular but also very lucrative.

The Hunter Wild and the Shoot Out Features

You have the Hunter Wild, which is a 4-row wild symbol. This one falls on reels 2, 3 or 4. But the Hunter Wild is nudging. If he does not appear completely on the reel, he will “nudgen” or move forward until he appears completely on the reel.

Every nudge he needs increases your multiplier. Up to 3 nudges, which then results in a multiplier of 4x. 

You also have the Shoot Out feature. If you take a Sheriff Star (Badge) on reels 1 and 5, all lower symbols in reels 2, 3 and 4 become a wild symbol!

Free Spins – 8 Gunslinger Spins/8 Hunter Spins

You activate the free spins by spinning 3 scatters. You can also buy these through the Buy a Bonus Feature for 71x the original bet (up to €100).

With the 8 Hunter spins, you are guaranteed to have the Hunter Wild per spin. The advantage is that you almost always have a price here. The risk is high. For every Sheriff Star you turn during the free spins, you get an extra free spin.

With the 8 Gunslinger spins, you have the advantage of a sticky multiplier. The multiplier increases when you spin a Hunter Wild. The disadvantage is that you will not (guaranteed) get the Hunter Wild every turn. You are only a real buyer if you spin many Hunter wilds that nudge in the beginning and then you play a big combo at the end. The risk here is extremely high.

Shoot Out Free Spins

Still choose between 8 Gunslinger Spins or 8 Hunter Spins BUT NOW WITH THE SHOOT OUT FEATURE.

Here the same recipe applies as with the Free Spins, but here you also have the Shoot Out Feature, where the lower symbols on reels 2, 3 and 4 turns into Wilds when you spin a Sheriff Star on reels 1 and 5. Then it can of course go very fast.

You get the Shoot Out Free spins through the base game when you spin a Sheriff Star on reels 1 and 5 AND 3 scatters on the 3 on the middle reels. That chance is very small.

The price you pay for it with the Buy a Bonus feature (no less than 750x the original bet of up to €18) already indicates that you will rarely get these free spins through the basic game. 

Payout Percentage (RTP)

The RTP is 96.02% -96.03% in the base game.

If you buy the Free Spin via the Buy a Bonus feature, the RTP is slightly higher: 96.06% to 96.11%. The RTP of the Shoot Out Free spin is even slightly higher: 96.08% to 96.12% 

Deadwood slot – the variance (volatility) is extremely high

Nolimit City already indicates that the variance is extremely high. We have no doubts about this.

It is possible to win prizes of several thousand times the stake via the Shoot Out Free Spins. You can also activate it via the basic game.

Deadwood Slot: Pros & Cons

Pros:

  • Fantastically developed and striking theme
  • Great features with the nudging wilds, the shoot out feature and the many free spins options
  • You can win HUGE prizes with this BRUTE and AWESOME slot

Cons:

  • The “buy a bonus” features are not for nothing
  • The slot machine is extremely volatile. Through the basic game, you can get through your money very rapido, if you don’t win the big prize

Deadwood slot: Who is this slot suitable for?

This Nolimit City slot machine is suitable for all players who appreciate the beauty and challenging gameplay. You have to dare to take risks so if you prefer to play conservatively, this slot machine is way too whimsical for you.

Conclusion

Deadwood might just be the perfect online slot machine if you are happy to take risks. There is humour in it, the Wild West theme is cool and the slot is full of nice surprises. 

The pace is very high and the bonus features give you an adrenaline boost. Most importantly though, you can win an awful lot of money.
