Look and Feel
The word pistolero is Spanish, and roughly translated it means armed criminal. Following this, the game has an old Wild West theme. Rather than the usual male heroes of such a motif, the main characters in this Western are women. The 8 standard reel symbols are 3 striking heroines, or Pistoleras, who feature in the introductory sequence as Western Belles in town and looking for trouble, and the playing card symbols for 10, J, Q, K and A, presented in a classic Frontier font and decorated with roses. There is no background to the game, because the reels take up all available space. The background music also evokes old-style adventures in the West, while animations and celebratory sounds accompany wins on the reels.
Special Symbols and Features
The Pistoleras logo is the game’s Wild Symbol. This will substitute for any regular icon on the reels to complete winning patterns, and will multiply any combinations it is part of 3 times. The other 2 Bonus Symbols are both represented by a Pioneer’s Wagon, one that says Scatter and one labelled Free Spins., and are the only symbols that the Wild can’t stand in for.
The Free Spins Round is triggered when 3 or more of the Free Spins Wagons are seen anywhere on the reels. When 3, 4 or 5 of these appear, 15, 20 or 25 Free Spins are awarded. These can be retriggered from within the round, and the game’s 3 heroines can also appear stacked on any reel to multiply all wins during this round by 3.
When 3 images of the Scatter Wagon are seen, either in the base game or the Free Spins Round, the Saloon Bonus Feature is triggered. Players are taken to a Shooting Gallery that features 12 Bull’s Eye targets. When selected, each of these reveals one of the Pistoleras or the game logo. Finding 3 matching characters will award a specific prize, while finding a trio of logos will award all 3 cash amounts.
