Enjoy Western Action At Australian Online Casinos

The Western genre with its rugged landscape and hardy characters has some similarities to the Australian Outback, and therefore Western themed video pokies are popular at online casinos. Both Microgaming and Playtech have Western themed online slots in their portfolio and this article reviews the best of them.

Microgaming seems to favour female protagonists in its Western themed online pokies. A recent release titled Pistoleras had three gun totting ladies in the lead. But more popular is an earlier online pokie Sunset Showdown. The cowgirl is the wild symbol, doubles payouts when it substitutes in winning combinations and awards the top line payout. When she lands simultaneously on reels 1 and 5, the cowgirl expands to cover the full reels. You are awarded three free spins, with these two reels held fixed as wilds. The revolver is the other important symbol in Sunset Showdown. It awards scatter payouts and also triggers the bonus game on the second screen. You are taken to the main street of a typical Western town. The cowgirl walks down the street targeting the hidden bad guys. You will be awarded bonus credits for each outlaw the girl kills. The other thematic symbols on the reels are rider, money bag, saddle and boots. Sunset Showdown is live at Microgaming online casinos like Casino Mate, Ruby Fortune and Royal Vegas.

Playtech also offers a number of Western themed pokies at its online casinos such as Silver Bullet, Cowboys & Aliens and John Wayne. The one being reviewed here is Wanted Dead or Alive, which is a fast paced action online pokie. The reels are set in the background of a typical Western town. The win combinations are heralded by gun shots. The dynamite is the wild symbol, which substitutes for other symbols to make winning combinations. This symbol also awards the top line payout. The cash sack symbol triggers the bonus game on the reels. You have to choose one of the sack symbols in the trigger and will be awarded bonus credits. The pistol symbol activates the bonus game on the second screen. You have to shoot down an outlaw who is hiding in one of six locations. Your bonus rewards depends on the number of bullets you spend to get your man. Fewer bullets used will lead to a larger reward. Wanted Dead or Alive can be played at Playtech online casinos like Omni Casino, Fly Casino and Mansion Casino.
