The exclusive content distribution deal between Fortune Factory Studios and Microgaming has the former producing high-quality slot content for the Quickfire platform. This gives them a tremendous level of distribution, and it gives Microgaming additional high-end content.
This deal is the backdrop for the most recent Fortune Factory Studios title, and it's the Showdown Saloon slot with its Western-themed action.
What This New Game Offers
Showdown Saloon is a 15-payline video slot with a bit of a Wild West theme. The top wins are in the range of 1,500x per payline, and you will have opportunities to get those wins more than once thanks to the Mystery Stacks feature. This feature has mystery symbols stacked on all reels, and each of those stacks will turn into a random symbol. The symbols on the first and second reels will always match, which makes it easier to get multiple low-end payouts at the same time. That's a more valuable feature than traditional stacked symbols that come at random for this reason.
There's also a free spins mode with re-spins available, and you can get up to 15 free spins at once. During the free spins mode, you get even more value because the Mystery Stacks symbols always match on every single reel on each spin, which puts you in a position where you could fill up all 15 spots on the reels with the same symbol for some truly tremendous prizes. This adds a fun level of excitement to the game because of the ability to win so many times at once.
