Wild Sheriff is a June 2012 Wild West-inspired Internet casino game made by Cayetano Gaming. American frontier, cowboys, gold, lawlessness, banditry, musical instrument, playing cards values, law enforcement, Old West, and gunslinging are among the Wild Sheriff’s themes. Cayetano Gaming has lots of Wild-themed games, including: Wild Egypt (October 2016), Fruit Stack Super Double Wild (April 2018), Jousting Wilds (May 2017), Egyptian Wilds (2015), Wild Stars (2016), Dragon Wild (2018), Totems Wild (2016), The Great Wild (September 2019), and Wild Bugs. Wild Sheriff’s rival games include True Sheriff from Betsoft Gaming, Wild West from NetEnt, and Wild West from NextGen Gaming.
The featured sheriff, whose post is elective, contextually supervises the law enforcement in a lawless US county. One symbol (“FREE SPINS”) requires three combination; while twelve symbols (sheriff, cowboy, badge, revolver, horse shoe, pouch bag, French harp, A, K, Q, J, and 10) require three, four, and five winning combinations.
Wild Sheriff Game Characteristics
Wild Sheriff has a partitioned white 5X3 grid, twenty fixed pay lines, super wins and mega wins, stacked “Wild” sheriffs, free games and extra free games, win multipliers, two Wilds, two substitutes, and a “gamble” side game. Its regular payouts are between X7 to X1000.
Wild Sheriff comes with thirteen symbols that consist of three special symbols and ten ordinary symbols. Its special symbols are: a full body image of a trigger-happy Wild West-era “WILD” (substitute) sheriff who is holding a revolver on both hands and has an ammunition belt; a passport-size image of a “WILD” (substitute) cowboy; and a golden-and-purple “FREE SPINS”.
The ordinary symbols are: a predominantly blue-and-golden “SHERIFF” badge; a brown leather pouch bag that is overflowing with gold; a gold-coated revolver beside a brown leather holster; a gray-and-golden horseshoe; a French harp; a red A; a golden yellow K; a purple Q; a blue J; and a green 10.
When Wild Sheriff loads, the players must press “start” to go to the interface. The Wild Sheriff bet sizes: $0.20 (minimum bet), $0.40, $0.60, $0.80, $1.00, $2.00, $4.00, $6.00, $8.00, $10.00, $20.00, $40.00, $60.00, $0.80, $100.00, $200.00, and $2000.00 (maximum bet).
The Wild Sheriff payouts for three, four, and five winning combinations. The “Wild” Sheriff, or the “Wild” cowboy pays X100, X250, or X1000; “SHERIFF” badge pays X55, X90, or X150; pouch bag pays X45, X80, or X125; revolver pays X35, X60, or X100; horse shoe pays X25, X40, or X70; French harp pays X20, X30, or X50; A pays X15, X25, or X40; K pays X12, X20, or X35; Q pays X10, X18, or X30; J pays X8, X15, or X25; and 10 pays X7, X12, or X20.
Three “FREE SPINS” not only offer free games and possibly extra free games (it can reach 20), at random, but also awards X2 win multipliers. There is another possible X2 win multiplier but the slot players must correctly predict if a yet-to-be-revealed “WILD SHERIFF” playing card has black or red values. Wild Sheriff’s non-progressive is $2000.00 X1000, which is theoretically $2000000.00.
The Wild Sheriff software is good. The sound effects include a horse neighing, twittering birds, cawing crows, someone playing a harmonica, gunshots, and a rhythmically rocking horse-drawn carriage. The theme track is a country music instrumental. The animated 3D graphics include a flipping and sparkling card, wildly shooting sheriff, and curtly nodding cowboy. The grid darkens then lightens during near misses. Numerous mesas and canyons that are synonymous with Navajoland grace the arid background, alongside a carriage parked beside a wooden western saloon onto which the grid is embedded.
