Wild Trigger: Slot Overview

Ay caramba players - looks like we're heading out West in a shoot 'em up styled slot from developer Play'n GO called Wild Trigger. The West was indeed a pretty wild place, hence the name, but that doesn’t mean it couldn’t produce comedic moments. Actually, in Wild Trigger, ironic might be a better word than comedic. In this Western, a couple of bandits called Clint McGraw and Dottie Fields have ripped off a bank in one of the biggest heists ever seen in the West. However, now they've got their hands on the loot, they don't want to share it. To settle the matter, the two criminals face off across the reels alongside features such as Walkdown Re-spins and Duel Free Spins.

Birds circle ominously overheard when Wild Trigger loads, before the camera pans down to rest on a dusty middle of nowhere town, characteristic of the Wild West. Whatever your thoughts on the rest of the game are, Play'n GO has designed what has got to be one of the hottest looking slots on the market. Now, we don't mean hot the way Paris Hilton uses the word, but in regard to temperature. Thanks to the heat haze effect, the sepia tones, the sheer amount of dust, the screen fair sizzles when Wild Trigger lights it up.

Melting in the middle of it all is Wild Trigger's 5x4 game panel, which has 20 paylines that usually pay left to right, though occasionally they pay both ways. If you look to the side of the reels, arrows are handily provided to alert you to the active direction. Slight overkill since they only pay both ways when respins or free spins are active, but still, handy. A medium volatile game, Wild Trigger's most optimal return to player value is the 96.2% version, offering a real range of stakes from a minimum of 2 p/c per spin up to a maximum of £/€100.

Lining up the paytable, we come across 10-A symbols as the lower value symbols, paying out a reward of 5-7.5x the bet for a five-symbol line. Next are bourbon bottles, hats' n boots, pistols, dynamite, and sacks of gold, worth 12.5 to 50 times the stake for five of a kind. Two wild symbols make their way onto the reels as well, substituting for all symbols, and are integral to Wild Trigger's features.

Wild Trigger: Slot Features
Wilds appear on reels 1 and/or 5 only and always land stacked, covering all positions on their respective reel. Landing 1 of them triggers a Walkdown Respin where the wild is sticky, and paylines shift to paying both ways. When both of the wilds hit at the same time, then 10 Duel Free Spins are awarded. For the full duration of the free spins bonus round, both wilds are sticky, and the grid pays both ways.

Wild Trigger: Slot Verdict
Wild Trigger takes place in one of the most desolate locations ever seen in an online Western-themed slot. The heat haze, the dust, the confrontation between two former partners, the buzzards, it all adds up to a pretty bleak scene. However, this is a bit of a front, in a way, because when drilling down into the details, Wild Trigger is actually one of the 'softer' Westerns we've come across in a while. This by no means makes it a bad game, as such, but if you're gunning for legendary status, it's unlikely to happen in these parts, muchacho.

The reason is that while a lot of other developers are arming their Western slots with the biggest sidearms they can find, Wild Trigger takes aim at a different batch of gunslingers. Supposedly, players who like their Western slots a little more laid back, who aren't too fussed about chasing down the biggest rewards out there. Anyone in this group might be cool with what Wild Trigger does then. Actually, what it does is quite close to a Red Tiger's rap slot, Hustling. The two games share a pay both ways, wilds at both ends dynamic, though if anything, Wild Trigger is the simpler choice. It's is not a massively lucrative slot either, as its max win figure stretches to 2,000x the bet at most. Hardly the level of swag you'd want to stiff a partner out of, surely.

Well, it doesn't get much shorter or sweeter than that, really. Wild Trigger is not a game which comes out guns blazing from the get-go, nor does it ever really do so. The features are pretty sparse, with just sticky wilds to look out for, so the action does get a bit repetitive after a while. Maybe if wilds walked during respins, or a multiplier feature was introduced at some point, or anything really, the game might have found it easier to shift up a gear. The 2c bets might be useful, but it's almost as if the onscreen heat has induced a level of lethargy Wild Trigger struggles to shake off.
