El Cowboy Megaways slot REVIEW
El Cowboy Megaways ReviewThe first installment in what might become the ‘El’ series from StakeLogic, El Patron, was action-packed and quite enjoyable. El Cowboy Megaways takes you to a similar south-of-the-border setting, but this time dressed up in a Día de los Muertos style theme. Bandits are still part of the equation though, and one of them will provide dynamite modifiers in the bonus round.
Modifiers take their sweet time to play out many times, but it’s hard to complain when it leads to larger payouts. The top and bottom modifier reel system is carried over into this sequel, and you get the same 3 wild modifiers from it in the base game. The bonus round has undergone some changes however, and it can dish out up to an x100 win multiplier per spin. The 10,000x potential is significantly reduced, but the same goes for the medium volatility.

El Cowboy Megaways Slot Features
The premium character symbols pay between 0.9 and 12 x your stake for 6 of a kind wins, and winning symbols are removed via the Cascading mechanic. This makes room for new and/or existing symbols to drop down to fill the gaps, and the process repeats as long as you keep winning.
Wild symbols step in for pay symbols to help complete wins, and they come in different forms from the bonus reels. The top bonus reel slides in random action symbols and/or blanks per spin, and the bottom reel slides in wilds. When the bottom and top symbols align, you get 1 of the 3 following Action Features for the relevant reel(s):
Expanding Wild - makes the wild cover the entire reel.
Dropping Wilds - awards 5 wilds that drop down one position per respin until all 5 wilds are gone.
Multiplier Wilds - awards 5 wilds with a random multiplier of x2, x3, x4 or x5. The wild multipliers always match though, and they are multiplied together if more than one is part of the same win.
The Bonus Round triggers when you land 4, 5 or 6 scatters in view, and this awards 15, 20 or 25 free spins, respectively. When dynamite symbols from the action reel aligns with wilds from the wild reel, you get 1 of 2 modifiers in the bonus round:
Wild Symbols - gives you up to 15 wilds randomly added to all reels except reel 1.
Multiplier Wilds - awards wilds with multipliers of x2, x3, x4 or x5 on reels 2 to 6.
In addition, a win multiplier reel comes into play during the bonus round, and it awards a random multiplier boost of x2 to x100 per spin. Non-UK players can purchase the bonus round from the in-game menu, and it comes with 4 options:
Pay 100x to get between 15 and 25 free spins.
Pay 300x to get 15 to 25 FS with 5,040 minimum win ways.
Pay 1,000x to get 15 to 25 FS with a maxed out 117,649 win ways.
Pay 250x to get one of the features above assigned randomly.

The pace of the original El Patron was a bit faster than this follow-up, and you’re made to wait for different animations even with the turbo switched on. The top/bottom reel modifier system is pretty much the same as before, but the dynamic reels Megaways engine takes everything up a notch (at least in terms of possible win ways). The 10,000x potential is actually significantly lower in this sequel, as you can win up to 25,000x in El Patron.
It comes across as a bit lazy that the modifiers haven’t been changed at all, but at least there has been an important upgrade in the bonus round. The multiplier reel is a welcome addition, and it combines well with multiplier wilds. The medium volatility is more forgiving, which makes it easier to forgive the lower max win. Overall, this is far better than the more generic Megaways releases we see all the time.
