Rawhide Slots

RawhideComing from WMS, Rawhide is a Wild West inspired game, a modern title with large enough prizes, with interesting features and with graphics which are about average if compared with what exists already in this category. Obviously, the Wild West angle has seen lots of similar attempts, and despite the best efforts of WMS this game doesn’t manage to be impressive, though I did enjoy the prizes and features which the scatter symbol brings along.

While playing Rawhide you will get 30 paylines from it, the game also offering 5 reels. You get scatter symbols on the feature list, plus scatters, multipliers and wilds. There are payouts as high as 4,000 coins inside.

Features of Rawhide

If you want to know about the features of Rawhide, you should first take a look at the scatter symbol and the free spins it can bring you. The other feature is the wild.

The Blonde Outlaw, a beautiful lady which has the word Reward underneath her picture, will be the wild of Rawhide and the symbol which you will see appear on the reels 2, 3, 4 and 5. The first reel doesn’t get a symbol of this type, so obviously you can’t form combinations that are 100% made out of wilds. While the wild doesn’t give away its own prizes, it’s going to be useful as a regular feature of this type, where if it lands on a payline where it’s needed, it substitutes for a missing symbol and the combo forms or improves.

The other major symbol in Rawhide, and perhaps the more important one, is the Marshal Badge, which is the scatter feature. The name is used to describe a symbol which gives its prizes by being present in enough locations on the reels, even if the positions are scattered around. Having between two and five Badges present will bring you payouts as high as 500 times the total bet.

Free Games Feature

The same Badge scatters also trigger free spins, but the requirement here is for 3, 4 or 5 symbols to be present. They will bring you 10, 15 or 25 spins for free, respectively. Wins are all doubled during free spins and there is a chance that you will retrigger the feature, should you get the minimum number of Badges again.


Betting options and jackpots

The slot’s wagers allow you to cover the 30 lines with bets of $0.01 to $5, so you can get as high as $150 if you want to, but you can also spend considerably less.

The rewards will reach 4,000 coins, or $20,000, when the regular symbols form combinations, or they could go up to $75,000 when there are five scatters present and the largest wager is used.

Design and symbols

While the features at least have those free spins and big prizes to bring you, the graphics don’t have anything special in store for players. It is an older design style that is used here, which mixes poker cards that are drawn in a Western style with a few images that are often used in such games (outlaw, sheriff, wagons, badges). It’s nothing to be impressed about, and quite a few slot machines will offer a lot more these days.


Symbols: Blonde Outlaw (wild), Marshal Badge (scatter, 500x total bet), Marshal (4,000 coins), Money Bag (2,000 coins), Wagon (1,000 coins), Wind Mill (1,000 coins), Ace (600 coins), King (600 coins), Queen (400 coins), Jack (400 coins), 10 (400 coins) and 9 (400 coins).


Is It Worth Playing?

It’s not a bad game, and it pays quite well, which is a surprise coming from a WMS slot machine. If you’re a fan of the Wild West then it’s certainly worth a try.

You will find Rawhide at any online casino which chooses to use software from WMS, playable either for free or for real money.
