Final Verdict: A slot well put together
There is no question about it; Wild West themes with high volatility seem to be popular nowadays. Quickspin has jumped into the fray, and I liked the results. This gritty western-themed slot definitely has sensational artwork and sound effects. In theory, the number of features should keep players entertained, but our players should know that they are not all the easiest to trigger, although this is not to say it doesn’t happen. For example, it took me a while to trigger the free spins which was a shame because I found that when I did, I was happy with the results. The Quick Slot Bonus had a better but still very low hit rate. Overall, I thought that this slot was well put together and would recommend it to players who have a higher risk/reward appetite.

Welcome to the Three Skulls Saloon – the darkest, dirtiest and meanest saloon that we’ll find for a 100 miles in either direction. The top-paying symbols are three pistol or shotgun toting cowboys.
