Swintt has taken SlotBeats’ Slot of the Week title all the way to the Wild West with its latest slot, Lone Rider Xtraways.
Being the first title to include Swintt’s XtraWays mechanic, the 6×3 reel video slot offers up to 262,144-ways to win and features a free spins mode.
David Mann, chief commercial officer at Swintt, commented: “We are always looking to push the boundaries and develop features and mechanics that deliver new and exciting player experiences, and with XtraWays we have certainly achieved this.”
“The anticipation really builds as players watch the XtraWays symbols land and the counter on each reel rise ahead of the next spin. And with up to 262,144 ways to win, there is plenty of big win action to be enjoyed.
“Lone Rider is a great game to debut XtraWays; it is our take on a hugely popular theme that we have been able to elevate with our innovative new mechanic. We look forward to seeing players journey to the Wild West and lasso some potentially big wins.”
The game features wild and scatter symbols: wilds substitute for all symbols except the scatter and can appear from reels two to six, meanwhile, scatters can land anywhere across the board. If a player lands three, four, five or six scatters, 10, 15, 20 or 25 games will be awarded, respectively.
By collecting XtraWays icons that drop at random across all reels, the player’s winning potential can be increased, while the reels expand and contract based on the symbols that land.
The newly-implemented XtraWays mechanic allows players to see the size the reels will be on their next spin, with a counter at the top of each reel indicating how many symbols will appear. The number shown can increase up to a maximum of eight symbols depending on the XtraWays that land.
In addition, 10 free spins are awarded when a minimum of three scatters land during the base game – with a maximum of 25 spins depending on the number of scatters. The feature begins with the reel layout that triggered the feature, however, if an XtraWays lands the counter, the next spin will increase by the corresponding number on the symbol.
The feature differentiates from the base game in a way that the counters on the top of the reels do not decrease and all reels can reveal up to eight symbols for the entire duration of the free spins. Once the feature has ended, each counter is reset to three.
The title comes with an RTP of 94.02 per cent with a high volatility level implemented within the gameplay. Readers who would like to experience a demo version of Swintt’s Lone Rider XtraWays can click here to be redirected to the suppliers official website.
