The Bounty slot REVIEW
The Bounty ReviewMicrogaming has long since leaned back in their armchair, and allowed up-and-coming developers to do the heavy lifting. The Bounty is Snowborn Games 4th title, and they have already managed to carve out their own unique style. While the game will hardly win any awards, it’s still an overall solid effort that’s well-worth checking out.
You can place bets between 15p and £45 per spin here, which is decent enough, and even the base game offers solid payouts due to the 2x multiplier wilds and the high value premium symbols. Per usual, you will most likely need either of the bonus rounds to win really big though, and we like how the wanted poster jackpots can be doubled (or even quadrupled) via special golden posters.

The Bounty slot Features
You have 2 wild symbols in this game, and the regular “deputy wild” looks like a silver sheriff star. It will step in for all regular pay symbols, and it’s also the highest paying symbol together with the Sheriff himself (pays 100x for 5 on a payline). In addition, you have a bronze sheriff star 2x multiplier wild, which says “Marshal Ghost Canyon”.
The Ambush bonus round is triggered whenever you land 3 Ambush scatters on reels 3, 4 and 5. You will be granted 8 free spins, and all wins are subject to a 2x multiplier by default. The +1 bullet symbol gives you 1 extra spin per bullet that lands, while the +1 dynamite symbol increases the progressive multiplier accordingly with no upper limit.
There is also a Bounty Jackpot bonus round that can be triggered in this game. This happens when you land a fully stacked (3 symbols high) Bounty bonus symbol on reel 5. This is a jackpot wanted poster collection feature, and it comes with 10 free spins that cannot be retriggered.
The name of the game is to collect 6 matching wanted posters to win the corresponding jackpot. You can, however, win more than one jackpot per Bounty bonus round. The Jackpots have the following starting value:
Grand Jackpot - is worth 1,250x your stake
Major Jackpot - is worth 100x your stake
Maxi Jackpot - is worth 18x your stake
Minor Jackpot - is worth 7x your stake
Mini Jackpot - is worth 5x your stake
You can also land golden wanted posters, and this doubles any matching jackpot it might be part of. You can even quadruple the jackpot value this way, which means that the absolute highest jackpot you can win is worth 5,000x your stake.
The 200 Spins The Bounty slot Experience
We landed a pretty solid base game win involving two 2x multiplier wilds, and at around 0:38 into the video we land 3 Ambush scatters. You’ll see 2 bounty hunters ride to Chapel Hill to ambush the bandits in the intro video before the feature starts. How it all played out you will have to see for yourself in the 2-minute highlights video below.
There is nothing revolutionary about The Bounty from Snowborn Games, but the game looks nice with all the premium character symbols mixed with lower value playing cards on the reels. The Ambush bonus round comes with unlimited free spins and progressive multiplier, and you also have the occasional jackpot feature to look forward to here.
The rustic visual presentation is nicely done, and they have managed to create a unique style for this game that makes it stick out from other wild west titles. The 2x multiplying multiplier wilds can land you decent base game payouts, but most of the action is found in the 2 bonus rounds. The volatility is pretty high (4/5), but the game comes with a suiting 5,000x potential.

If you appreciate The Bounty slot you should also try:
Wild West Gold - is yet another lone cowboy that came riding into town, trying to outgun the hard-to-beat Dead or Alive 2. Still, it’s a worthy effort from Pragmatic Play, and you can look forward to multiplier wilds, free spins with sticky multiplier wilds and payouts up to 10,000x your stake.
Deadwood - is NoLimit City’s gritty attempt to take down the biggest dog in town (see below), and it comes with xNudge multiplier stacked wilds. There are 2 “regular” bonus rounds here, and these can combine into the very lucrative Shoot Out free spins, where wins up to 13,950x can be landed.
Dead or Alive 2 - is still the king of the hill in the wild west genre, not least since you can win up to 111,111.11x your stake. NetEnt’s follow-up title is a vast improvement on the already rock solid original game, and it comes with 3 different bonus rounds to choose from.
