Microgaming is providing its own take on the Wild West in its exclusive title Showdown Saloon, developed by Fortune Factory Studios.

Set in the dust and dirt of the frontier, the wildest slot in the old west pulls players through the saloon doors into a world immersed in fast-paced western action.

Showdown Saloon is a five-reel, 15 payline western-themed slot loaded with thrilling features, including pattern-based Mystery Stacks, Re-spins and Free Spins. Illustrated with vibrant graphics, the game features richly depicted saloon accessories, such as pistols, playing cards, rolling dice and poker chips, which act as symbols in the game and deftly capture the essence of the wild west theme. Absorbed with a catchy and funky soundtrack, along with distinctive sound effects such as train whistles and ricocheting bullets, the music builds suspense and intensity, enhancing the player’s gameplay as they take aim for big rewards.

David Reynolds, games publisher at Microgaming, said: "Showdown Saloon is a fast-paced, thrilling and rewarding experience for all kinds of players. The soundtrack is orchestrated with high production and fits perfectly with the theme – you can't help but tap your feet and get into the wild west zone as respins set the scene for exciting rewards.

“Showdown Saloon is the second game under the Fortune Factory Studios brand, and there are plenty more exclusive titles coming from this talented collective. Players will experience high volatility gameplay within this title as they aim to hit that full reel blackout.”

Phelan Sykes, head of game production at Fortune Factory Studios, added: “Enriched with exciting graphics and sounds, Showdown Saloon gives you the feeling of mingling with card sharks and gunslingers in a classic wild west saloon. Optimised for desktop and mobile, the game allows players to set their sights on high stakes wins.

“We are confident players will enjoy the game as much as we do and look forward to releasing more games for Microgaming in the future.”
