A Western Tail Design
The game is in Wild West style with all kinds of dogs in different roles. The grid is inside a town in the American West with large buildings on both sides during the day. The prevailing colour is brown on and around the reels, which are made of wooden planks.
On them, you will see the 5 dogs clothed and styled as outlaws, sheriffs, businessmen, and other characters. You will also see the cards from 10 to A. The soundtrack is melodic with shooting sounds and dog barks.
A Western Tail Gameplay
The low-value symbols are the playing cards from 10 to A. Land 3 to 5 of the 10, J or Q on a pay-line to win 0.20x to 1x stake. The K and A return from 0.40 to 2 times your stake for 3 to 5 matching symbols on a pay-line.
The premiums are 5 cute dogs dressed in hats and garments. They appear as gamblers, business dogs, high-class lady dogs, outlaws and sheriff dogs. Their payouts are from 0.80x to 4x stake, 1.2x to 6x stake and from 1.6x to 8x stake for 3 to 5 matching ones on a pay-line. The best-paying symbol is the game logo – land 3, 4 or 5 of it in a combination to win 2, 4 or 10 times your stake, respectively.
The wild is the icon with 2 crossed pistols and it substitutes for all symbols except the scatter. It can substitute for more than one symbol at a time and is the symbol with the highest payout. Land 3, 4 or 5 wild symbols in a spin to win 4, 8 or 20 times your stake, respectively.
The Cash Grab Bonus you trigger when you land 3 or more of the symbols with the bag with the $ sign on reels 1, 3 and 5 in a spin. These 3 symbols become then selectable and you can pick one to reveal the cash prize you win. They are in the range 2x to 50x total bet.
