When a developer puts out a game that looks at a period of history things can either go very right or very, very wrong. Pistoleras by Microgaming is a video slot that looks at the time period of the wild west, but focuses on the female side of things. So saddle up and load up your six-shooter as we travel back in time to a period when bank trains were regularly robbed and whiskey flowed like rivers!
Pistoleras is a 5 reel, 25 payline video slot that has an iconic look and feel to it, boasting buxom beauties in a rough and tumble world. The game's symbols include a blonde stunner showgirl, a Mexican sharpshooter with loads of cleavage bulging from her outfit, and a very conservative redhead with a hand cannon and six-string in her possession. Other game symbols are mainly comprised of card symbols (10, Jack, Queen, King, and Ace), a set of six shooters with roses (which serve as the game's wild symbol), and a sack of money that serves as the game's bonus scatter symbol. A stagecoach symbol is a second scatter that can set off a free spins bonus.
The game's features rounds a free spins bonus round when 3, 4, or 5 stagecoaches are unveiled on the reels, setting off 10, 15, or 25 free spins each. During this round all wins are multiplied by 3x their normal value, and the female symbols can become stacked during the round. The game also has a saloon bonus, which is set off when 3 of the moneybags are found on reels 3, 4, and 5. The saloon bonus sees players shooting at targets, trying to find matches on the board to win big cash prizes.
Pistoleras seems to bring a mixture of an old-time look and feel consistent with the old west, but also brings with it a sense of ridiculousness that feels well done on the part of Microgaming.
