There are many Wild West-themed slots out there for you to get to grips with. Trigger Happy is Real Time Gaming’s take on the popular genre, and it is arguably one of the more entertaining, not to mention generous releases. As well as a wealth of special features, the game comes with two progressive jackpots to boot.
If you are looking for a nifty slot machine with a decent return, which is inexpensive to play, and could potentially yield progressive jackpots worth tens of thousands of dollars; Trigger Happy is right up your alley. Let’s find out why…
Trigger Happy is packing 5 reels and 30 paylines of action. While the slot game does not allow for the number of paylines featured in a spin to be manipulated, you can still alter your stakes. At its cheapest, the slot requires a minimum stake of $0.30 a turn. Maximum bets are capped at $30, which is not unreasonable given that there are two jackpots up for grabs.
As with many of RTG’s progressive jackpot games, Trigger Happy falls somewhere between the low to medium volatile markers and has an industry-standard return to player rate of 95%.
Both thematic and generic symbols spring up on the reels of this release. The high playing card icons (9s through aces) yield wins of 5 up to 120 coins when three to five of them appear in winning combos. Symbols which include cowboys, cowgirls, saloons and stallions all cough up more impressive cash prizes.
The icing on the cake in Trigger Happy is the pair of progressive jackpots which can be won. Known as Minor and Major Jackpots, neither requires you to acquire a winning combination on the reels. Instead, both are triggered at random. While not as lavish as prizes found in other RTG jackpot slots, these two progressives do still churn out wins worth thousands of dollars, and tens of thousands of dollars, respectively. The longer it takes for players to win them, the more these jackpots will be worth.
The special symbols and features in Trigger Happy take some getting used, so playing the game for free is advised. Here is what you need to know about the special symbols:
Before you begin the free spin round, you are going to be able to select one of two cowgirls. Known as the Lucky Feature, this bonus gives your free spin round added perks.
If you opted to select the red-haired cowgirl, then you’re going to see her either substitute for scatters, or appear stacked on the first and third reels. If you choose the blonde-haired cowgirl, then she can cover the entire fifth reels or both the fourth and fifth reels.
Whichever option you go with, the win rate with these to added features is terrific. While you only start with 7 free spins, there is the potential to add more to your tally by landing additional scatters while the free spin bonus is in play.
There are a few things to note about Trigger Happy. First and foremost, the free spin bonus appears to be triggered rather easily, or at least it was when we played it extensively. Moreover, the wins tend to come thick and fast once the bonus is active. The inclusion of cheap stakes and a pair of randomly triggered progressive jackpots only furthers our belief that Trigger Happy is a game that you will find thoroughly enjoyable.
