Combine outstanding design, a comic book feel and a Wild West theme and you’ll get Golden Colts, one of the newest releases by Play’n GO. Golden Colts has been developed in partnership with operator Mr Green and is exclusively available on Mr Green Casino’s platform for the first year of its online presence. A product of a darker vision of slot games, Golden Colts revolves around a story of a team of bounty hunters who are embarked on an adventure to track down the dead sheriff who possesses the golden colts; the deadly weapons need to be retrieved and the sinister sheriff on the loose seized. Have you got the guts to saddle up your horse and join the cowboy party?
The slot developers admitted they’ve taken inspiration from movies like Django, Westworld series and games like Red Dead Redemption to create the Golden Colts world and characters; instead of presenting tumbleweed and standard cowboys, the Play’n GO team redefined the theme by capturing the characters personalities and introducing a whole suite of interesting details that can’t be missed by the user. The background is a spooky ghost town, and eerie sounds accompany every spin. The symbols are related to the theme, if we exclude the playing card symbols from Ace to 9 thrown in for lower values. There are 4 characters: members of the Ace High Gang which are the gunslinger, the gambler and the girl and the dead sheriff. They are brilliantly animated and a joy to meet on screen.
The Wild symbol is a bull skull, whereas the Scatter is a skull forged in metal (silver) with glowy blue eyes, and it is a lock to the Golden Colts Box. The Wild substitutes all other icons, except for the Scatter, and helps form winning combinations.
Golden Colts online slot is played with 5 columns and 4 rows; there are 40 paying lines which are fixed. The wins are formed left to right, and Scatter wins are the only payouts that are not affected by predetermined win lines. The control panel is placed below the reels, and at the centre of it you’ll see all the possible total bet values you can choose per spin. The Spin and Autoplay buttons are located on the right, with more options on the left, including paytable overview, sounds and Fast Play. As you can see, the base game is pretty standard stuff, and something rather familiar with popular Play’n GO titles. It’s as straightforward as it gets, just like a classic Wild West showdown.
The bonus features is where the thing turns into a wild shootout. Golden Colts is a feature-packed slot games with plenty of action. The key is to trigger the main bonus feature with 3 Golden Colts’ Box locks; then the game offers you 7 different bonus features. A golden colt cylinder will start spinning and reveal which one you’ve drawn. These are the Ace-High Gang feature (3 free spins+ 4×4 symbols), the Wild Bull feature (3 free spins with 2 Wild reels). The Law of the Wild feature (1 free spin with the highest paying symbol stacked on the middle reels; if they fill up all three reels another re-spin is awarded), the Gunslingers feature (1 free spin with a multiplier of up to 30x), the Poker Play feature (1 free spin with a 2×2 gambler symbol), the Furies feature (1 free spins with a 2×2 girl symbol) and the Most Wanted feature during which the player gets to pick and choose among 20 ‘most wanted’ posters and win prizes.
