Hero wilds

The slot has three main highlights, the first of which is the Hero Wilds. Here a mysterious cowboy drifter comes into town to protect the people of Gold Canyon from outlaws. Imagine yourself as Clint Eastwood's character only known as the preacher in the spaghetti-western Pale Rider.

Scatter Pays

When three or more stacks of dynamite are bundled together, the scatter pays trigger. The hero also acts as a scatter which triggers explosions with only two sticks of dynamite.

Highlights of the slot include wilds, scatter pays and free spins.

Free Spins on the Frontier

If you manage to land two hero symbols together, then you will earn 8 free spins or land three heroes together so that you will earn 20 free spins.

Gold Canyon Verdict

Gold canyon slot machine variance

While we are still waiting for the release of this slot in July 2019, this is one game that we're eager to play! We know that Betsoft is always great when it comes to audio effects and graphics and the high volatility should appeal to players who love to live a little on the edge. The features are ok but we wish there were some more of them, though.

This is a high volatility game with an 96.28% RTP.
