Howdy partners, are Y’all ready for the biggest adventure west of the Mississippi? Buckle up, and saddle your horse, ’cause Microgaming has launched the latest addition to its portfolio of video slot games.

The new release is titled Showdown Saloon and was created exclusively for the renowned developer by Factory Studios. As its name suggests, it’s a western-themed slot that promises plenty of action and even more chances of scoring big prizes.

Welcome to the Wild West

Showdown Saloon is a five-reel three-row video slot with 15 fixed paylines, boasting an interesting theme and a number of exciting features, such as Mystery Stacks, Re-spins and Free Spins.

This release features stunning graphics, while the symbols on the reels perfectly match the whole theme, so players will encounter pistols, playing cards, rolling dice, and poker chips. The beautiful visuals are complemented by a matching soundtrack and other sound effects that are sure to enhance the whole experience.

On each of the five reels, you’ll be able to find large Mystery Stacks, which can be replaced by a single symbol. A maximum of three different icons can substitute across the grid, while the same symbol will always be found on reels 1 and 2.

To trigger the Re-Spin feature, you’ll need to land full symbol stacks of the same symbol on reels 1 and 2. The triggering stacks remain in place, while the remaining reels respin. It should be noted that Mystery Stacks within the remaining reels will always match the icon in the locked reels, which further increases the chances of creating winning combos or retriggering the feature.

A Rewarding Experience

Definitely, the most appealing part of this game is the free spins feature, which starts with 5, 10, or 15 spins, depending on the number of Scatters used to activate it. During the free spins feature, Mystery Stacks will always match across the reels, while the maximum wins can go up to 1,500 times the triggering wager!


Commenting on the launch of this game, David Reynolds, Games Publisher at Microgaming said Showdown Saloon was a fast-paced, thrilling and rewarding experience for all kinds of players. He pointed out this was the second game under the Fortune Factory Studios brand, with plenty more exclusive titles coming from this talented collective.

Reynolds promised players would experience high volatility gameplay within this title as they aimed to hit that full reel blackout.

Phelan Sykes, Head of Game Production at Fortune Factory Studios, said that enriched with exciting graphics and sounds, Showdown Saloon will give players the feeling of mingling with card sharks and gunslingers in a classic wild west saloon. He stressed the game was optimised for desktop and mobile, and that it would allow players to set their sights on high stakes win.

Sykes stated his company was confident players would enjoy the game as much as they do and added Fortune Factory Studios was looking forward to releasing more games for Microgaming in the future.

Showdown Saloon went live following the release of Icy Gems and Crystal Rift slots, and can be played at any online casino powered by Microgaming.
