Tombstone Game Characteristics
Tombstone has an unpartitioned and irregular dark brown grid that is embedded on the entry of a one-storied Western saloon. The grid, which has five reels, seems like a 3X3 grid that has been enlarged to accommodate two more rows on its both sides. It has fifteen symbols, 108 betlines, 15 total bets, three reel-tall “wild” outlaws on “dead or alive” wanted posters, three substitutes, three special features, nudged wilds, win multipliers, three types of free games, extra free games, and regularly pays from $0.02 to $300.00.
Tombstone has six special symbols and nine ordinary symbols. Special symbols: the first wild-and-substitute is a slim horse thief Skinny Joe in a white cowboy hat; the second wild-and-substitute is a youthful white-haired bank robber Edda Star in a dark cowboy hat; the third wild-and-substitute is a smoking and notorious stocky bandit “El Gordo” in a dark porkpie hat; the Gunslinger free spins-unlocking feature is a golden “$$$ scatter”; the feature involved in unlocking the Justice free spins is a golden “Deputy Marshal” badge; and the feature involved in the Bounty free spins is a golden “county sheriff” badge.
Consisting of three high-paying, two mid-paying, and four low-paying, the ordinary symbols are: three “TNT” dynamite sticks; six stacked gold bars; a teal-and-white “$” gunny bag containing “$$$” currency; a pair of silver horseshoes; a wood-handled revolver alongside three golden bullets; and sepia playing card values A, K, Q, and J.

The $50.00 bet offers these Tombstone payouts for three, four, and five winning combinations. Dynamite pays $25.00, $50.00, and $300.00.

Each nudged wanted poster gets +1 win multiplier. The three types of free spins: justice free spins, gunslinger free spins, and bounty free spins. The “county sheriff” and “deputy marshal” badges on the first and fifth reels offer three justice free games, alongside locked wanted posters. Three “$$$ scatter” symbols unlock the ten gunslinger free games, accompanied by limitless locked win multipliers, nudged wanted posters with progressively increasing win multipliers, and an additional free game for each additional “$$$ scatter”.
