The True Sheriff Game Characteristics
The True Sheriff is set in a Wild West-era wooden outpost called High Noon. Its 5X3 grid—divided up by iron rods—is embedded on a saloon that serves as the “The True Sheriff” law enforcement station whose signposts proclaim “county jail” and “High Noon Sheriff”. Located between the “High Noon Livery” and “Partaker” premises, the lawman stands to the right of the dusty saloon whose numbered corner posts indicate the game’s 30 left-to-right adjustable paylines.
Other features: eleven coin sizes, five bet levels, 935 total bets, transformed and locked “wild” plaques, bonus game, bet multipliers, one-off free games, side game, and regularly pays from $5.00 to $6000.00. The True Sheriff’s thirteen symbols: six special and seven ordinary symbols.
Special symbols: the substitute is a black-and-white brass “wild” plaque; the free games-unlocking scatter is a sheriff’s badge atop a “Wanted Dead or Alive” file; bulbous-headed blond sheriff; revolver and bullets on dirt; and a sulky, Stetson-wearing and brown-haired bandit named Villainy.
Ordinary symbols: Stetson-wearing, white-mustached gambler; bartending hairy brunette; and fancy card values—golden A, golden K, golden Q with necklace, golden J among gold coins and whiskey, and ropey emerald K.
The True Sheriff’s coin sizes: $0.01, $0.02, $0.03, $0.04, $0.05, $0.10, $0.15, $0.20, $0.25, $0.50, and $1.00. Active paylines: 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13, 15, 17, 19, 21, 23, 25, 27, 28, 29, or 30. Minimum bet: $0.01. Maximum bet: $150.00.
The $150.00 bet offers these The True Sheriff payouts for three, four, and five winning combinations. Sheriff pays $150.00, $900.00, and $6000.00. Villainy pays $150.00, $600.00, and $4500.00. Gambler pays $75.00, $450.00, and $1800.00. Brunette pays $75.00, $300.00, and $1200.00. A pays $50.00, $225.00, and $900.00. K pays $25.00, $150.00, and $600.00. Q pays $25.00, $150.00, and $600.00. J pays $25.00, $100.00, and $450.00. And 10 pays $25.00, $100.00, and $450.00.
A revolver on reel three prompts the nearby sheriff to pockmark some symbols that then start flipping before falling over, thereby transforming into locked (for one spin) “wild” plaques—three, four, and five plaques offer $150.00, $1500.00, and $15000.00.
The sheriff or Villainy may land (sometimes more than once) to the right or left of the revolver, thus loading the dueling bonus game; after studying Villainy’s wanted poster, the sheriff and bandit engage in a credits-winning five-level face-off—predicting a coin’s heads (sheriff’s bust) and tails (“the true sheriff”) determine the outcome.
Three sheriff badges: $300.00 and ten free games. Four sheriff badges: $1500.00 and 12 free games. Five sheriff badges: $15000.00 and 15 free games. Set on a casino table, the side game—nullifies or doubles the collectible current wins after wrong or correct predictions, respectively—involves guessing the color (red or black) of the playing cards in the gambler’s hands. The True Sheriff’s non-progressive jackpot is $750000.00
The True Sheriff’s good software: mobile and desktop versions; quick spin; and 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 40, 50, and 100 autospins. There is ambient accordion instrumental music. Sound effects: footfalls, gunshots, whooshing, and clanging. The cinematic graphics: pockmarking, falling coins, flipping and acrobatic symbols, trigger-happy sheriff, grinning face-off, bartending brunette, and deadly gunfight.
