Genesis Gaming recently released a brand new video slot themed after Wild West and Spaghetti Westerns, so saddle up your horse and put your cowboy outfit on, because we are off to Arizona, where we will explore the famous deserts, the Grand Canyon and Colorado River, looking for long lost riches.
Arizona Treasure is a five-reel video slot with five fixed paylines that pay both left to right and vice versa. The reels are set somewhere in the vicinity of the Grand Canyon, judging by the looks of the giant rocks in the background.
Playable from $0.05, the slot offers plenty for a reasonable price, with possible 350 free spins and a 64x multiplier you can win during the Bonus round.
What We Love
Being big fans of John Wayne, Clint Eastwood and Wyatt Earp, we really like video slots themed after Wild West and Spaghetti Westerns. The amazing soundtrack gets you into the mood as soon as you enter the game, and already you feel your fingers start itching, looking for the gun under your belt.
Genesis Gaming is well-known for producing slots with crisp graphics and top notch animations, and Arizona Treasure slot is no different. Those polished symbols really come to life, and the reels run as smoothly as possible, while the picturesque background dries your throat and awakes the thirst for whiskey.
The Showdown Free Spins feature is also very interesting, since it offers up to 395 freebies and a maximum possible multiplier of 64 times the winnings. Once you land three Pistol Scatters, you get five free spins to begin with and two Extra Wilds.
If you manage to guess which of the extra Wilds will appear more during first five free spins, you will be awarded with additional five freebies and an improved multiplier.
This goes on until you get all 395 freebies and the maximum multiplier, or until you fail to guess the correct extra Wild. This Bonus round offers plenty possibilities for hefty payouts, which is why it is our personal favourite.
If you do not trigger the Bonus round, do not despair, because you can win rewarding payouts during the base game as well, especially if you decide to test your luck with Double Up or Triple Up features. These gambling rounds may significantly increase the won amount if you succeed in guessing the correct symbol eight times in a row.
What We Do Not Like
We definitely did not like the fact that the 2016 release offers only 5 paylines. Even though the slot pays both from left to right and vice versa, the truth is that it is pretty hard to land a winning combination, especially with symbols that pay the most.
We can honestly say that we formed just a combination or two with Sheriff and Villain symbols in those two or so hours it took us to test the game, and that was it. We like our slots with lots of paylines, giving gamers more possibilities.
When talking about the Showdown Free Spins, you really need to be a genuine quick draw in order to stop the reels at the correct time for landing three Scatters. You will definitely have to spend a bit of time and money in order to test your drawing skills properly before you manage to land those Pistols on the reels.
All spinners who like a bit of Clint Eastwood and John Wayne in their slots should definitely try out Arizona Treasure slot, since it is a genuine Spaghetti Western experience.
Original soundtrack, very good graphics and animations combined with some interesting and rewarding special features will definitely attract lots of online desperados and quick draws, particularly those who like gambling as much as Doc Holliday.
On the other hand, gamers should be aware that winning combinations do not occur often, while the free spins are not that easy to trigger.
