Push Gaming is taking us back to the American frontier where we will go head to head with the Deadly 5!
Taking down the Deadly 5 is no small feat, but it’s a lucrative mission if you can pull it off. Each of these fearsome cowboys has a bounty on their head for good reason, but where there’s danger, there’s dollar.
Push Gaming rarely, if ever, disappoint. Recently we’ve seen high-octane titles like Mad Cars, Fire Hopper, Bison Battle, Fat Banker and more. Each had their own stamp of quality from a provider who has brought us so much, but can Deadly 5 join the ranks as an impressive slot in its own right?
Let’s head west and find out.
Deadly 5 is a 5 reel slot with 20 fixed paylines. Winning combinations are formed when 3 or more of the same symbol types land from left to right, starting from the left-most reel.
The minimum bet available here is £/€0.10 per spin and the maximum bet available is £/€100 per spin, with plenty of other options in between the two. Deadly 5 has a theoretical RTP of 96.39%.
In terms of symbols, the highest paying regular symbol in Deadly 5 is El Fuego, followed by Irene ‘Bullseye’, Eliza ‘Ryder’ and Billy the Bull. Low-paying symbols fall to a Holstered Gun, Flask, Boots and Horseshoes. There is also a Wild symbol in the form of a Sheriffs Badge which substitutes for all symbols except Safe Scatters.
Unlike other Push Gaming titles, Deadly 5 is lacking in any exciting features during the base game. Although this may seem a little disappointing, there is plenty of action to be had in the Free Spins round.
Landing 3, 4 or 5 Scatters in any position on the reels will automatically trigger the Free Spins round. Depending on how many Scatters are awarded, the total amount of Free Spins differs.
During Free Spins, a locked Sheriff Wild symbol sits stacked on the right-most reel for the duration of the round. Above the reels are Wanted Posters with the faces of the remaining 4 Character symbols. Each time a character symbols lands on a reel that matched the Wanted Poster, it will transform into a fully stacked Wild symbol.
Once any Character symbols have expanded they will then reset for the next Free Spin, leaving the Sheriff Wild on reel 5 locked in its position.
For those outside the UK you may benefit from a Bonus Buy option.
Push Gaming has granted players access to the Free Spins round for 80x your current bet. The RTP when purchasing Free Spins increases from 96.39% to 96.51%.
Deadly 5 is certainly quite deadly with action-packed, exciting moments, but it’s not quite as deadly as some recent Push Gaming Slots.
Mad Cars set the bar very high and to top it would have been at all order, yet Deadly 5 falls short when compared to many other Push Gaming titles too. At 5,000x, the win potential isn’t nearly as attractive as their other games, but would you really turn down 5,000x? We wouldn’t, and although it’s not as potent as we’d have hoped, it’s still another brilliant Push Gaming title.
The verdict of a game comes down to much more than what it can do at it’s best, because as we all know, the maximum win cap is reserved for a lucky few anyway. The question is, can Deadly 5 perform, and is it worth your time?
The answer to both of those questions is yes.
Deadly 5 and its Stacked Wild Feature can make you feel like a badass bounty hunter, and if you’ve got an itchy trigger finger and a dead-eye then you’ll be reeling in bounties like its nobodies business.
Overall, we think Deadly 5 is another proud Push Gaming Slot, but we’d have liked to see more in the way of multipliers, instant prizes and other Push Gaming touches that has made previous games really stand out.
