Black Horse Deluxe Design
The game is set in the American wilderness at dusk. You can see a cowboy propped on the left and a cowgirl propped opposite to him with the back on the right of the grid. Two torches are placed on the left and right of the grid. The colours are red and fiery in the late evening created by a stunning sunset. The soundtrack is melodic and in the American country musical style. The grid is made of black reels on which land the colourful symbols.
The symbols include fruit such as cherries, plums, oranges and grapes. There are cactus plants, cowboy hats, saddles, blazing gold horseshoes, gold coins and wilds with running horses. On the top of the reels, you can see the Black Horse Spins counter on the left and the multiplier values on the top right. Next to the spin button on the bottom are the buttons for the spins’ speed, the volatility and the gamble feature.
Free Spins are played at daylight with a marvellous view as a background. The music is a different country tune, which is positive and cheerful. The colours are more bright and sunny. The grid is semi-transparent and reveals the landscape behind it.
