Game of the Week – Bounty Belles
Saddle up your horses and grab your six-shooters. Bounty Belles brings old west action along with modern sensibilities. The game is the latest 243 Ways to Win pokie from iSoftBet. The game features a Wild Bounty mode, free spins, and static jackpot prizes. Let’s learn more about this game and the prizes available.
Saddle Up and Get Your Bounty
Bounty Bells is the latest 5-Reel, 243 Ways to Win pokie from iSoftBet. The theme is set in the old west where you’re a female bounty hunter hunting for female outlaws. The pay symbols for this game are what you’d expect in the form of Royals, cowgirl hats, horseshoes, saddlebags of cash, safes, and six-shooters. The sheriff’s star is the Wild.
Most of the Royals will not turn a profit, even on 5 of a Kind. As such, you will have to land wins with higher paying symbols or get lucky with some bonus features. Luckily, this game has some awesome bonus features to help you win big.
Wild Bounty Mode
Land the Wild symbol on Reels 1 and 2 to trigger the Wild Bounty Mode. During this mode, Reels 3 through 5 may expand by 1 or 2 rows. Also, any bounty posters that appear on the screen will be added to your win total.
Catch the most wanted posters to receive jackpot prizes. The Minor is worth 30x your bet. Major is worth 50x your bet and Grand is worth 100x your bet. Multiple bounty or jackpot posters can land on a spin.
This feature triggers fairly often and results in some nice wins. On average the wins range from 3x to 10x, but they can be larger if you hit the Most Wanted posters.
Free Spins Game
The Bonus symbol is the scatter for this game. If you land three or more on the board, you will unlock the free spins game. You’ll get 10, 12, or 15 free spins based on whether you land 3, 4, or 5 scatters. During free spins, the Wild Bounty feature will trigger more frequently. Free spins are also re-triggerable.
It took a while to trigger the free spins feature, but once I triggered it once, I managed to trigger it 4 times in the span of about 30 spins. Each time free spins were triggered, I received a nice win. Most were in the 20 to 40x range.
However, the third time triggering this feature, I was particularly lucky. Not only was I able to retrigger my spins but I managed to hit three Most Wanted posters. For that game, I hit a nice 178x winner.
During the free spins game, the Deadman’s Draw game may trigger after any win. A draw of cards will appear on the screen with multipliers from 2x to 10x. Each card will be shot. The last card to be shot will be your multiplier.
Despite triggering the free spins feature four times, the Deadman’s Draw feature never activated during any spin. I’d be more disappointed if my average win during the bonus game wasn’t decent.
Bounty Belles a Rootin’ Tootin’ Good Time
Wild west pokies can be a mixed bag, so I was pleasantly pleased when Bounty Belles turned out to be a real winner. The game has a great mix of features and the bonus features trigger frequently enough to give you a realistic chance of hitting a big win.
This game has an RTP of 95.99%, making it one of the better pokies you’ll find at Australian online casinos. Look for Bounty Belles at Wild Card City, King Johnnie Casino, and most online casinos offering iSoftBet pokies.
