Wished Outlaws: The Casino Game is a new July release by Microgaming in partnership with All Hallows Eve developer Hasbro. It makes use of a new free spin bonus with a beautiful wanted poster reward in the shape of a Westward plane with a golden background. Players are directed to take the wanted posters that have been floating around the slots. These posters have a photo of a wanted adult male and model their wanted poster based on this image. Players can then make a bid by matching the wanted poster image to the name of the adult male or female as displayed on the free spinning dailies.
Microgaming’s had the prospect of doing a mobile version of this game before seeing the opportunity to do it in a slot machine where the free spin slot machines were already established. Following up on this launch, they are now releasing Wanted Outlaws at a per spin rate of ten dollars instead of the traditional four-dice maximum pay rate of ten cents. It is unclear at this time how much further marketing plans will be announced beyond this initial release.
This release also marks the first time that a microgaming site has offered a free spins bonus round with actual in-game money in the form of gift cards. In previous releases, only in-game money was given out. In many cases, this new Wanted Outlaws feature is being sold in conjunction with another feature called the “Free Shot” slot that allows players to eliminate an image by selecting it from a small selection of available photos. This is an excellent addition to a slot machine offering and offers a real need for additional incentives to attract and retain repeat customers, especially since many sites are introducing new features, such as free shot play, all the time.
