New Wazdan Online Slot Game: Black Horse Deluxe
Wazdan has been in the business of launching online casino platforms and games for more than a decade, growing with technology and player preferences along the way. The proof of its growth is most evident in its new release of Black Horse Deluxe.
Building on a Classic
The original Black Horse slot game was popular for many reasons. The eye-catching color contrasts, the original theme, and the features make Black Horse one of the most popular online slots in the last several years. So, why not improve on a classic and make it even better?
Wazdan first unveiled Black Horse Deluxe at the ICE London exhibition space earlier in 2020. The gaming industry was impressed with the landscapes created to be even more stunning than in the original game, the tribute to the Wild West in the form of a beautifully-detailed black stallion.
Complete with new features, high-quality audio, and an exciting narrative, Black Horse Deluxe stood out from its competition.
Wazdan Head of Sales Andrzej Hyla noted, “We are extremely proud of Black Horse Deluxe, our Wild West game title destined to please even the most discerning slot game player as it takes them on a journey like no other through the desert with friends and their trusty steed, in the pursuit of vast bonuses.”
Black Horse Deluxe Overview
The basics of Black Horse Deluxe include its six reels, 20 paylines, and RTP (return-to-player) of 96.23%.
This latest Wazdan production is available for desktop and mobile devices and supported by Windows, iOS, Android, Apple, and HTML5. And it is offered in 22 languages, depending upon the online casino’s preferences.
The soundtrack for Black Horse Deluxe is a country tune but not too twangy, a soundtrack fitting for the setting. And that setting is stunning, with reds and oranges highlighting the desert scene.
Rock formations and a setting sun in the background take the focus away from the cowboy and cowgirl on either side of the grid. They are meant to be the stallion’s caretakers and supporters, and they often fade into the background. The grid is set in a wooden frame, with everything blending perfectly into the scenery.
Payouts for Black Horse Deluxe
The betting range for Black Horse Deluxe is larger than most.
It starts with a simple bet of $0.20 per spin, but then it increases by twenties and then hundreds and thousands, all the way up to 10,000 coins per spin. To be honest, that doesn’t seem like a smart move, to risk everything on one spin, but players can choose for themselves!
The maximum payout for the game is 950x the bet. Wow!
The payouts for each symbol are as follows for six of each on a payline:
- Galloping horse = 2000x
- Saddle = 500x
- Cowboy hat = 300x
- Cactus = 200x
- Grapes = 80x
- Plum = 60x
- Orange = 40x
- Cherries = 30x
Game Choices for Black Horse Deluxe
One of the unique player choices in Wazdan’s games is the volatility level. Players can choose from any of three levels to dictate their action:
- Low volatility = more but smaller payouts
- Standard volatility = big wins in fair frequency
- High volatility = bigger wins but less frequent
Players can also choose to buy free spins. By clicking on the shopping card, they can buy:
- 10 spins = 440 coins
- 15 spins = 660 coins
- 20 spins = 880 coins
- 25 spins = 1,100 coins
- Black Horse spins = 700 coins
Additionally, players can also control the volume of the music. Most games simply have an on/off button, but Black Horse Deluxe allows players to adjust the volume. And instead of just regular spin speed and fast, players can choose from normal, fast, and ultra fast.
When a player wins, he or she can claim the win outright or choose to gamble it. The “Guess the Color” game requires a simple choice of red or black, and the card then flips over to show red or black. A win doubles that money and gives the option to keep trying to double it, but a lose forfeits all of it.
Black Horse Deluxe Gameplay/Features
The special symbols in the game are engulfed in flames – in a good way. The Wild is the black horse and substitutes for all regular symbols. The Scatter activates free spins with at least three of them anywhere on the reels. And the Gold Coin is the galloping black horse that increases the spins bonus by one.
Scatter symbols award free spins as follows:
- 3 Scatters = 10 free spins
- 4 Scatters = 15 free spins
- 5 Scatters = 20 free spins
- 6 Scatters = 25 free spins
When playing the base game, each Gold Coin adds to the Black Horse Spins Bonus counter at the top left of the screen. When the entire meter fills, the player is notified that they then must shoot two Gold Coin symbols on a single spin to trigger the Black Horse Spins Bonus with 10 spins. It is not as difficult as it sounds. During these special free spins, Gold Coin symbols stay locked on the reels. This is where the potential lies for massive payouts.
The multi-level Win Multiplier is the feature that removes winning symbols, allowing more symbols to fall into place and potentially create new winning combinations. Each time symbols are removed, the Win Multiplier increases – from x1 to x2, x3, and x4. During the Free Spins round, the multipliers start at x2 and increase to x4, x6, and x8. The multiplier chart is located on the upper right of the screen.
