Load up with Loot This Weekend in Western Style with Gold Canyon

Gold Canyon

It’s the weekend, and you’ve turned to VegasCasino for some entertainment again as you should. We hope that you are enjoying the rest that you deserve, but we are always eager to enhance your time with a few rounds of one of our Brand New Slot games, which are sure to entertain you, especially when coming from the stables of Betsoft.

This week, our pick of the weekend is a Western-themed slot that will have you bowing to the law and chasing away the outlaws. Gold Canyon comes loaded with much potential, with Expanding Wilds, Free Spins, and Explosive Scatters.

For a full review of the game to catch up on the action that can be had, please carry on reading and find out what sort of entertainment your Bitcoin can bring you.


Gold Canyon will take you back a few hundred years, to a time when the United States was still a dream. Early America was wild and rampant with outlaws and crude justice systems.

This slot sees you searching the mines for gold while protecting your interests from the baddies. While the visuals are a bit dated, it adds to the authenticity of the era and works well in this particular game. The sounds will have you feeling that you are a part of an old western movie, immersing you into the role of the story told on the reels.

The game symbols are where your attention should be, as combinations of these icons will either make or break your fortunes as you play. All symbols bolster the theme pretty well. The higher paying symbols include a Stallion and a Gold Nugget. Medium value icons are a lantern, sheriff’s badge, horseshoe, wanted poster, and poker hand. The low-value symbols include standard card deck images (J to A) but in a traditional Western font.

There is both a Wild symbol and scatter symbol employed into the game for extra feature fun.


Gold Canyon is played over 5 reels with 20 fixed paylines. Landing wins is as easy forming combinations of 3 or more matching symbols across a set payline, from left to right. The payouts are made in conjunction with the paytable.

The gameplay is set at a high variance, with an RTP of 96.13%. You can, therefore, expect volatile swings in the behaviour of the game when it comes to payouts. High variance games may have long dry periods between wins, but when the wins do start, they tend to pay very well. In this case, 5 Gold nuggets across a payline will award you 500 times your total bet.

Simply set your desired wager and hit the spin button to get the reels rolling. The Auto Spin function is a nifty feature, should you want to set the game to play between 5 and 100 spins for you at a set bet.


In high variance games, it is the special features that you must rely on in order to bolster your bankroll. This game is full of them.

Expanding Wilds

If you land a Wild Cowboy on the reels, there is a good chance that he will spread over more than one position on the reel he lands on. This increases your chance of multiple wins on a spin.

Exploding Scatters and Free Spins

If you land three or more dynamite scatter on the screen at the same time, the icons will explode, causing more symbols to fall from above. Should more dynamite land, more explosions and cascades will take place. At the end of it all, the number of scatters landed will determine the number of free spins afforded to you. You can, therefore, accumulate between 3 and 15 free spins for the round.

Double Up Game

After any game win in either the base game or free spins, you can take a chance at increasing the prize by subjecting it to a double or nothing game.

Once selected, you will need to choose heads or tails before a coin flips. Guess correctly and you will double your current win. Chose incorrectly and you will lose it. A positive selection will give you another chance to double the new bigger amount.


Western-themed game lovers must give this slot ensemble a try.
