Showdown bonus game and Progressive Jackpot

  • The Showdown bonus game is triggered by the Cowboy (Billy The Quid) appearing anywhere on the left reel and the Bandit King appearing anywhere on the right reel.
  • There is no line win attached to this Showdown scatter win – only entry to the bonus game, which itself guarantees a bonus win.
  • When the game enters the bonus round, the scene is outside a saloon in a Wild West town. Shoot as many bandits as you can in this game and win a cash reward for each bandit you shoot. You have two options here – you can either play the game yourself in ‘Manual Fire’ mode, where you must click on the screen wherever the bandits appear in order to take them out, or play in ‘Auto Fire’ mode, where Billy The Quid will do the shooting for you.
  • To play in ‘Manual Fire’ mode, click on the ‘Manual Fire’ button to enter the game. Each time a bandit runs across the screen, appears at a window inside the saloon or pops up to take a pop at you from any other hiding place, you must click anywhere on the bandit’s body to shoot him. For each bandit you shoot, an award will be displayed in the bottom left of the screen.
  • You have unlimited bullets, but only 6 bullets available at a time, after which the game will automatically re-load your pistol for you. You cannot fire while it is re-loading.
  • See how many bandits you can shoot before the Bandit King shows up and challenges you to a showdown. How long he takes to show up will vary from game to game.
  • To play in ‘Auto Fire’ mode, press the ‘Auto Fire’ button, and just sit back and watch as Billy The Quid cleans up the town! He’ll do his best to get as many bandits as he can – but remember even Billy will not hit them all.
  • Don’t worry if you are not very good at shooting, it is a pseudo skill round so for entertainment purposes only, the game has already decided what it is going to pay you before you have finished the bonus round.
  • At the end of the shoot-out, the game will finish and move on to the Showdown scene. Just watch as Billy takes on the Bandit King (caught red-handed after robbing the town!) and wait to see what’s in the villain’s bag of loot. You will score a cash reward for all the gold and gems in the swag bag.  If you didn’t score very well in the shooting round, the game will pay generously in the swag bag to make up for it.
  • If you find 3 diamonds in the swag bag, you win the Progressive Jackpot – as displayed on the counter in the top centre of the screen.

Gold Prospector Bonus Game

  • goldrush prospectus gold 300x188 Gold Rush ShowdownIf 3, 4 or 5 Gold Prospector symbols appear as a scatter on the reels, you will enter the Gold Prospector bonus game. According to whether you had 3, 4 or 5 symbols, you will get 3, 4 or 5 attempts to find gold.
  • The number of attempts you have left will be displayed at the bottom of the screen throughout the game.
  • A map will be unrolled on the screen and you must select a square on the map grid where you want the Gold Prospector to dig for gold. He will dig in that square, and you will receive an award if that square contains gold nuggets. If you just find rocks, you win nothing for that attempt.

Once you have used up all your attempts at digging for gold, the game will display a summary of your winnings and any awards will be credited to your account. The game will then return to the reels.

  • The amount each successful dig is worth depends on the number of prospectors that triggered the bonus:
    • 5 prospectors – 40 x total stake on all lines for each gold found
    • 4 prospectors – 10 x total stake on all lines for each gold found
    • 3 prospectors – 5 x total stake on all lines for each gold found
    • 1 bandito – 4 x total stake on all lines if one bandito is shot

In-reels Gunfight Bonus Game

  • The In-reels Gunfight Bonus game is a special bonus win triggered by the Cowboy appearing anywhere on the left reel and a bandit appearing anywhere on any other reel.
  • The game is played automatically on the reels – watch as Billy The Quid attempts to shoot each bandit on the reels, and win a reward for each bandit he hits.
  • The amount each bandito is worth when shot depends on the number of banditos on the screen when the bonus was triggered:
    • 4 banditos – 50 x total stake on all lines for each bandito shot
    • 3 banditos – 15 x total stake on all lines for each bandito shot
    • 2 banditos – 8 x total stake on all lines for each bandito shot
    • 1 bandito – 4 x total stake on all lines if one bandito is shot

Gamble your winnings

  • After every win you can choose to gamble your winnings in a zero margin game.
  • All your winnings from the last spin are gambled (if you are playing Gamble Win after winning in one or more bonus games, these winnings are gambled too).
  • You will be able to play the Gamble Win game and gamble your bonus winnings if you have just won on any bonus round, but you cannot play Gamble Win after winning the Progressive Jackpot.
  • You can double your money by selecting red or black, but if you feel brave you can multiply your win by four times by selecting the correct suite.

  • If you win, you may repeat the gamble on the next card (and then subsequent cards) or you may collect all or half your winnings. You can continue playing the Gamble Win game until your potential winnings exceed the maximum win limit.
  • You can keep collecting half until your balance is less than double the minimum stake level. After that you must either bet or collect all.
  • All cards are dealt from a new pack – so the card that came up in the previous gamble could be the same card in the next one (so it is always an equal bet).
  • This feature operates at zero margin.
