About Western Gold 2
Slot players love a good old Wild West theme slot - and because Western Gold was such a hit, it comes as no surprise that they have created the sequel - Wester Gold 2: Double Barrel. This well-designed game offers scatter prizes, free spins and even super free spins with a maximum win potential of 25,000x the stake.
The wild west theme is apparent in the design - the colours of the backdrop include a sandy landscape with barely blue skies. The hills in the background look arid - and the reels are adorned with typically cowboy-esque symbols. All of this gets you very much in the mood to start spinning…

Western Gold 2 Gameplay
The game is played out on a grid just a bit larger than standard - 5-reels and 4 rows, offering 40 paylines in total. You land the wins by getting 3 or more identical symbols from left to right on one of the paylines. The slot allows you to bet anywhere between 20p up to £20 per spin.
In terms of the payout, there are a mixture of cards, wild west symbols and classic slot game symbols. The lower paying ones are the playing cards and western-themed symbols - boots, hats and pistols, which pay out between 1x and 1.5x your bet for 5 on a payline.
Then we have the classic slot symbols - the single BARs, double BARs and triple BARs which pay out between 3x and 17.5x the bet for 5 on a payline. If you match five ‘7’ symbols on one of the paylines, you can win 30x your stake.
The game also has wild symbols which can land anywhere on the reels. They substitute all pay symbols to make wins and can pay up to 30x your stake for 5 on a payline.
Western Gold 2 Bonus Features
Let’s look at the main features of the game, where improved combinations can be won:
The Scatters Feature: If you land at least four scatters on the reels then you will be rewarded an instant prize. 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11 or 12 scatters will pay out 1x, 5x, 15x, 25x, 50x, 100x, 250x, 1,000x and 10,000x your stake respectively.
Free Spins Feature: If you land 3 of the Sheriff badge free spins symbols in the base game on reels 2, 3 or 4 then you get 3 free spins. Every time you land a new free spins symbol or mustang on the reels, you will reset the free spins. The round starts with a 1x multiplier and this can be increased by landing a Feature Barrel.
You cannot trigger the scatter feature in this round, but you can still collect symbols and when the free spins round ends you will be awarded a cash prize according to the above values. If a Mustang symbol lands on the 5th reel you will be awarded a spin on the Feature Barrel.
Super Free Spins: If you land 3 free spin symbols on the three centre reels plus wrangler symbols on reels 1 and 5 you trigger the Super Free Spins. It can also be triggered by the Feature Barrel. The main difference is that the Cash Barrel value is paid at the end of each spin.
Western Gold 2 Review
Overall, this is a pretty interesting game with excellent winning potential, great symbol payouts and excellent scatter prizes. The betting range isn’t the biggest, but when the prize payouts are so large, that doesn’t really matter. This game certainly shoots from both barrels and you may find yourself riding off into the sunset with winning combinations.
If you like cowboy slots like Western Belles and Western Wilds, you might want to try this slot.
