Venture into a world of deserts, mountains, cowboys, and gunslingers courtesy of the Western Gold slot game, available to play now at NZ.

Western Gold adopts many classic slot symbols, albeit with a slightly Western vibe. For instance, there are several BAR symbols, but the silver color and metallic sheen make them look like Sheriff badges. There are also symbols of Pistols, a Cowboy Hat, Cowboy Boots, and a Lasso—the tools of a cowboy’s trade!

The game’s icons are displayed to the right of the reels. If you click the three little dots, you’ll reveal a few additional icons, allowing you to check the paytable, mute/unmute the sound, and visit the Cashier to make a deposit.

Western Gold is a 40-payline slot game that revolves around the Scatter symbols, depicted by a Golden Horseshoe. These symbols can appear anywhere on the reels and they trigger wins when 4 to 12 appear, with the game’s jackpot awarded for the full dozen.

The jackpot payout will differ depending on your stake and you can see the amount listed at the top of the reels at all times.

The Scatter doesn’t trigger the main feature, that job is left to the free spins symbol, represented by a Golden Star Badge. The symbol only appears on the second, third, and fourth reels and awards 3 free spins when all 3 are revealed. Scatters are also active during the feature but rather than paying out instantly, they are collected and built steadily, only paying when the feature ends.

Software and Mobile Experience

Western Gold is a compact slot game, and if you’re playing on desktop then the backdrop will take up more room than the actual reels. On mobile, things are condensed, and the gold-trimmed reels stand out much more, shining like a beacon against the desert background.

It’s fully supported on mobile so you can play on iOS and Android. Just For the Win and Microgaming have plenty of experience creating mobile games so it’s no surprise that the game is at its best on smaller screens. Just make sure you have a secure Wi-Fi connection and you’ll be safe to play this game at home, at work, on your commute, or anywhere else you go!


If you love stories set in the Old West and feel the pangs of nostalgia whenever you hear the hooves of a galloping horse or see clouds of dust loom over a desert horizon, this is the slot for you!
