Important Symbols and Combinations
Scatter: The Sheriff's Badge (Star) is the scatter symbol in The True Sheriff. This symbol, when appearing on the right reels, can trigger free spins and assure you a high payout.
Wild: The Gun symbol is the wild symbol in this cool game. The wild symbol replaces all symbols except the scatter symbol.
How to win the top prize: The top prize in The True Sheriff is a 3000-coin jackpot that gets triggered when you land 5 Sheriff's Badge scatter symbols on any of the reels. There are also free spins to be won with this bonus. Another way of earning this jackpot is by landing 5 gun wild symbols on the reels. The start-point for this is landing a gun symbol in the centre reel. When that happens the Sheriff, who is standing just beside the reels, whips out his gun and starts shooting. You hit the jackpot if he shoots up 5 symbols, all of which become wild symbols.
How the bonus round is activated: The bonus round in The True Sheriff slot is the Showdown bonus. This round is activated when you land the gun symbol consecutively on the 1st, 2nd, or 3rd active payline, but between the Sheriff and the Bad Guy symbols.
Other important symbols, if any: Other symbols in the game include the Sheriff, the Bad Guy, a pretty woman, another older character, and the numbers 10 to A styled in the design of that time.
The True Sheriff is a 5-reel 3D slot from Betsoft Gaming with 30 paylines. The graphics are of very high quality, as are the other effects, just what you would expect from an organization of the calibre of Betsoft. The game is available for play in both download and instant play modes, for fun or for real money. For mobile casino enthusiasts, there is a mobile version of The True Sheriff as well.
The coin size varies between 0.02 and 1, and you can bet a maximum of 5 credits per line, with the maximum bet size being 150. The paylines pay from left to right. The game also has all the other usual features seen in Betsoft games. These include View Pays, Paylines, AutoPlay, and Double Up. The AutoPlay feature allows you to play the game in automatic mode for a minimum of 5 spins and a maximum of 100 spins. Unlike in some of the other games, you use a slider to determine the total bet.
The Double Up feature gives you a shot at doubling your win amount. Each time you hit a winning combination, the Double Up button present below the AutoPlay button becomes active. When you click this button, you get a screen that has a man with a deck of cards. You need to guess whether the next card dealt will be red or black. The right answer doubles your winnings and the wrong answer gives you nothing.
The bonus round in True Sheriff is the Showdown bonus. Landing the gun wild symbol consecutively on the 1st, 2nd, or 3rd active payline, but between the Sheriff and the Bad Guy symbols, triggers this round. During this round, you need to choose between Heads or Tails to see how much you win in this round.
The free spins in The True Sheriff are activated when you get a minimum of 3 Sheriff's Badge scatter symbols on consecutive reels. Along with the free spins, you also get the money associated with the combination. The number of free spins you get depends on how many scatter symbols you land. You get 10 free spins for 3 scatter symbols, 12 for 4 scatter symbols, and 15 for 5 scatter symbols. There are not additional free spins during this round. Also, each time you land a scatter symbol during a free spin you get additional payouts.
Top and Secondary Prizes
The top prize in The True Sheriff is a 300-coin jackpot. It is triggered when you land 5 Sheriff's Badge scatter symbols on any of the reels.
Also, if you land a gun wild symbol on the centre reel the sheriff starts shooting at the symbols on the reels randomly. If he hits 5 symbols and all of them flip to become wild symbols, you get the 3000-coin jackpot.
