Take a break from oriental-themed slots like Plentiful Treasure or Wu Zetian and experience something coming from the other side of the spectrum. The creative developers at RTG have turned the page and delivered a slot aimed to please all the lovers of the Wild West at Springbok. The company’s latest game is named Trigger Happy and revolves around troublesome times in a small backcountry town when dodging a bullet was a skill almost everyone needed to acquire. Western themes are not the rarest of them all, but the genre has been going through a dry spell lately, and RTG is determined to put a stop to it.
By setting the game in an unnamed town in the frontier period, the provider wants you to immerse yourself in the suspense brought by inevitable shootouts and lawlessness. Don’t worry, as the worst that could happen is a lot less painful than being targeted by a six-shooter in the hands of a wanted man.
Trigger Happy slot has 30 fixed paying lines and 5 reels. All symbols pay from the leftmost side to the right, with the only exception of the Scatter symbol which pays is any position on the screen. As per usual, you need to align at least three symbols on an active line (in this case, any of the 30 lines available) to receive a corresponding payout. Trigger Happy benefits from not one, but two substitution symbols represented by the redhead cowgirl and the blonde cowgirl.
The two gals seem to enjoy the dusty and gritty lifestyle of cattle wranglin', as they look attractive and in a good mood, each wearing plaid shirts and matching hats. Redhead cowgirls are grouped Wilds on reels 1 and 2, replacing all symbols except Scatters. The blonde cowgirl symbol behaves the same way, only on reels 4 and 5. The Scatter symbol is represented by the sheriff badge, and it has the ability to stir things up by activating the main bonus feature.
In Cahoots with the Cowgirls
Three or more Scatters are needed to unlock the Trigger Happy free spins round where the reward is 7 free spins. That’s not the end of it, as the player has to choose whether to go with the Redhead Cowgirl Feature or the Blonde Cowgirl Feature. The first offers the possibility to have the redhead cowgirl act as the Scatter or cover reel 1 during free play. The other option also contains two possibilities: either blonde cowgirl covers reel 5 during the free games, or reels 4 and 5.
Unsuspected things often happen in the Wild West, so you can expect some random features as well. For one, there is the Lucky Feature which can happen at any point in the game and award Lucky Free Games (5 to 10 free spins) or the Trigger Happy Feature. Secondly, there are two randomly activated jackpots: the Minor, starting at $ 250 (around 3,460 ZAR), and the Major starting at $ 1,000 (around 13,840 ZAR). All in all, looks like you won’t be barkin’ at a knot with this one!
