  • Heart of the Frontier
    Play for real


Heart of the Frontier is a Playtech developed video slot that transports players back to the Old West, a time of high-stakes saloon poker games, gun-toting outlaws, and no-nonsense sheriffs.

The Wild West theme has proved to be very popular on video slots, but Playtech has done things a little differently here. In many slots, the protagonists and antagonists are all men, from the heart-throb heroes to the tobacco-chewing evil-doers, and the women merely serve to play minor and subservient roles. This time women have been placed front-and-centre, representing a more diverse vision of the Old West that everyone can appreciate.

The Heart of the Frontier slot reels are located against a backdrop of an Old West town, with rickety hitching posts sitting outside timber-framed saloons and hotels. It’s a dusty, hot, lawless place and as soon as you press “Spin” you’re placed right in the middle of it.

Heart of the Frontier has a fast, slick base game and one that comes loaded with some big wilds. The game’s logo is the main Wild symbol, but the Sheriff and the Bandit are also wild and can trigger an Expanding Wild and a Showdown Feature, both of which are described in more detail below.

Heart of the Frontier has 20 paylines across 5 reels and all of these pay from left to right. The main symbols all come stacked on the reels and can fill the entire reel if they land in the right place, and there are also many standard playing card symbols.

There are two big symbols to look out for on the Heart of the Frontier slot game: the Bandit and the Sheriff. Both of these are wild and when they land on the reels they will expand to fill the entire reel. They are also Sticky Wilds and Walking Wilds and as you might expect for two people on different sides of the law, they walk in different directions.

When the Sheriff Wild lands, it will expand, lock in place and then move to the right at the beginning of every additional spin. When the Bandit Wild lands, it will also lock in place and will then move to the left prior to every spin. If they both land on the reels at the same time then they will face each other and the game’s Showdown Free Games feature will be triggered.

During this bonus spins feature any expanding wilds that land will lock in place for the remainder. There is also a Showdown that takes place between the two symbols once the bonus spins end. They will shoot at each other and the winner will remain on the reels when the main game returns.

Software and Mobile Experience

Heart of the Frontier has been adapted for smaller screens and looks great on all devices. There is no repetitive music in the background to annoy you during prolonged play, so feel free to turn on your sound or slip-on a pair of headphones. The addition of Expanding Wild symbols and stacked main symbols creates a rewarding experience for mobile users.
