New Slot Alert: NetEnt Launches Buckshot Wilds with Expanding Wilds Feature

NetEnt, a leading provider of premium gaming solutions for global online casino operators, has announced the release of a new slot game called Buckshot Wilds. This Wild West themed game features an expandable gaming grid with a default RTP of 96.04% and 40 paylines.

Buckshot Wilds has 4-8 rows and 5 reels, with a volatility level of medium to high. The game has a minimum bet of 0.10 and a maximum bet of 100, offering players the chance to win up to 859x their bet. The game is set to be released on January 31, 2024.

The game takes players to a rocky town reminiscent of the Wild West, featuring an oil painting-like design. The free spins feature in the game takes players to a night scene, where desperados gather to relax after a week of robbing stagecoaches and rustling cattle.

The game’s main features include free spins, expanding reels and wilds, bonus bets, and feature buys. Wild symbols replace any regular symbol and can help form winning combinations. They remain on the reels, shifting down one position on each spin before exiting off the bottom. Landing wilds over a trigger symbol triggers a symbol shootout, turning adjacent symbols into wilds.

Reels can also randomly expand during any spin, reaching a height of eight rows and cloning any wilds on the top four rows. Players can trigger 6, 10, or 15 free spins by landing three to five scatter symbols. During the free spins, the grid remains in the eight-row setting, and additional wilds are guaranteed on each spin.

Players can also engage the Bonus Bet to double their stake and increase their chances of getting expanding reels and free spins. The game also offers the option to purchase free spins rounds using bet multipliers. Additionally, players can purchase free spins via the Bonus Bet for an increased stake.

In addition to the Buckshot Wilds release, NetEnt also released Finn and the Candy Spin game last November, which features random game enhancements.
