Travel back in time to enjoy Playtech’s newest game release: Heart of the Frontier.

It might sound like a sci-fi thriller, but it’s actually set in the old badlands: the Wild West. The 5-reel, 20-payline slot is packed full of action, with every aspect created in exquisite detail, including the badass female lead characters: two cowgirls and a native American.

The characters act as wild symbols and activate when they fill the entire reel. The bandits and sheriffs stay on the reels and shift left (bandits) or right (sheriffs) with every subsequent spin until they edge off the screen again. Sometimes, however, they appear on the reels together…

The Wild West wouldn’t be the same without reckless gunslingers shooting up trouble, and that’s exactly what happens when the sheriff and Bandit wilds meet: we get the Showdown Free Games.

Five free spins, during which the wilds (and any new ones) stay locked in place. The round ends with a shoot-off between the heroes, the winner of which stays on the reels for your next spin. With the locked-in wilds, there’s huge potential for wins here.


It’s a 20-line slot with a max coin value of £5, so a £100 maximum. The Heart of the Frontier symbol pays out the biggest win at 500x bet for five adjacent tiles. With three different wild types thrown into the mix, as well as horseshoes, cards and the sheriff’s badge, there are plenty of ways to win. The payout percentage is a fraction over 96%.

Chief Operating Officer at Playtech, Shimon Akad, said “Heart of the Frontier is a great addition to our industry-leading slot portfolio and is certain to thrill and engage both new and existing players across our extensive casino network.”

With its captivating graphics, compelling music, and adrenaline-pumping sound effects, he might just be right.
