Fistful of Dollars Online Slot Machine Review
As you might have guessed from the title, this is a wild-west themed slot. To save you the time I checked, and – sorry – there is no ‘A Few Dollars More’ sequel, at least not yet. This is the first time I have come across expanding wilds on a Saucify slot. I’m encouraged by this – while they make a lot of innovative and sometimes quirky games, the in-reel features are often lacking from their line-up. Fistful of Dollars is a solid game which resizes for your screen and gives you the opportunity of some big wins via the 4x multiplier in the free spins game.
The graphics are good rather than great. Each symbol is distinctive, and many have nice shading. The lack of detail tells me that these games are designed with smartphones in mind. You’ll find all the Wild West clichés here, including old guns, cowboy boots, a hat, cactus and Marshal’s badge. There is even a wanted poster, which comes to life when you hit 3 or more. The animations are basic, with the expanding wild nicely done. Music is on-theme (twangy guitar type tunes) though a little too repetitive. The win noises are less obtrusive than on some Saucify slots I have played. My old gripe of these games taking just that little bit too long to cycle through the winning lines after a spin does apply to this slot.
Apart from the expanding wilds, the only notable feature is the free spins. I will say that this game would be greatly improved by the addition of an extra feature. The theme lends itself to many different pick-em rounds.
Setup and Play for Fistful of Dollars
Saucify seem to use a different number of win-lines for every slot they make. This one uses 30, nothing wrong with that of course, it complements the other games with 15, 20, 25, 40, 50 and 243 ways to win that I have played recently.
You can choose your lines, your coin size and the number of lines you play with this game. The coins go up to 10c; you can play 10 per line – making the max spin $30 for all the lines. You can spin from 30c a time if that is more comfortable.
The biggest paying symbol is the lady with a feather boa with a gun; this will get you 6000 coins for 5 on a line. Next comes the bag of gold nuggets (3000 for 5), Marshal’s badge (1000) and crossed guns (500). The smaller wins include liquor, the cactus, boot, hat and cowboy on a horse in silhouette.
There are wilds in this game, in the form or portraits of cowboys. Any likeness to Clint Eastwood being purely coincidental of course. These symbols only appear on reels 2 and 4 (counted from the left). When they do the figures expand to cover the entire reel, fire some gunshots and then turn wild. This can significantly increase your wins for that spin – especially those times when you get both together.
The remaining symbol is the wanted poster, which triggers the free spin bonus with 3+ anywhere on the reels. This symbol also comes to life for a moment before the bonus begins. You’ll get 10 spins for 3, 15 for 4 or 20 for all 5.
Fistful of Dollars – Bonus Round
All wins during the bonus round are quadrupled, which is the highest default I know of on Saucify slots. It is not clear whether this can be retriggered (not for me!), so I will assume that you can add more spins with more 3+ posters during play. There is nothing special happening on the reels compared to the base game. It is always a pleasure to watch your total wins going up. The expanding wilds are still in play during this feature.
Fistful of Dollars – Conclusion
Another great slot from Saucify. I like their games in general, though the previous lack on anything interesting happening on the reels (maybe with the exception of the random wilds in Bucksy Malone) was a big gap. Even including something as simple as expanding wilds shows that this software house is keeping up with the latest developments. Aside from the wilds and free spins, there is not a whole lot of action going on in this game. A solid game rather than anything spectacular would be the best description. I do enjoy Wild West slots, and this is a good take on the theme. Check it out for yourself soon!
