Online casino games software provider Play’n Go has launched Highway Legends, a new historical slot that features two highway robbers, Swift Rick and Lady Pearl, who "roam the land in search of riches that they can steal from unsuspecting coaches." The game is played on a 5×3 grid enhanced with 20 pay lines and a varied range of stakes that starts at $0.10 and goes up to $50.
Players can land three gold-encrusted symbols to secure a standard victory. The slot’s in-game Wild fashions itself as a Rider on Horseback (Stacked Wild), a Bandit (Sticky Wilds) or a Gold Plaque (Standard Wild), mixing the period-set iconography with the dynamic power Symbols.
The game features three types of wilds including Standard, Sticky, and Stacked which are represented by a Gold Plaque, a Bandit, and a Rider on Horseback respectively. The Dual Golden Pistols in the game play the role of a scatter and serve to trigger various bonuses. Equally, the Scatter is represented as dual Golden Pistols on the reels.
Money Bag Symbols can land on reels 1 – 4 with varying cash values. If the player lands this symbol on reel five – alongside any of the previous reels – the player will win the accumulated value, filling their bag of loot further.
Landing three Golden Pistol Scatters will cause the rider to achieve the Free Spins. If only two Scatters land, the fifth reel will Re-Spin and aid in securing the third Scatter.
Lady Pearl takes centre stage for the Sticky Wild feature. On any spin, Wild Symbols can land as part of the spin cycle. They’ll remain on the reels for the duration of the feature, with further Wilds accumulated as they roam across the reels.
The Stacked Wild feature involves Swift Rick stacking up to four Wilds on any of the five reels, coupled with a dynamic animatic, showing players where the Wilds will appear. This feature acts as a one-of-one translation of the narrative, with the leading protagonists stacking as much loot as they can carry.
Speaking of the studio’s latest online slot, George Olekszy, Head of Game Retention at Play’n GO, said: “Who doesn’t love a historical slot? Highway Legends has some really innovative features. From the Stacked Wilds that create lots of potential, down to the individual character abilities – this slot captures the magic of period-themed adventures.”
Highway Legends’ period theme falls on the line of games including Wild Trigger (2022) as well as the glitzy Royal Masquerade (2015) and the train-set Wild Rails (2019).
