When playing the Steampunk Bandits slot, you have 10 fixed paylines that are always active. Also, this game has a traditional 5x3 reel layout, although it has a slightly different winning combo mechanism which we will describe below.
For the bet values of this epic Wild West game, you can change the line bet. The minimum line bet is 0.05 and the maximum is 10.00. As the line bet is multiplied by the 10 paylines, this means that the maximum bet is €100, and the minimum is €0.50. Whether you are a high roller or casual player, you can still enjoy this fun title!
For those who want to liven-up this GamePlay Interactive title, there is also an Auto Spin feature. Sit back and relax and choose between 10 to unlimited spins. You cannot set any other features though like a loss limit.
Although the Steampunk Bandits slot has a 5x3 reel config, it has a cluster reward symbol system. Whilst most video slots only award horizontal wins, Steampunk Bandits also awards vertical wins! This means you can get winning combinations with up to 15 symbols.
The basic paytable has just 6 symbols - a Pile of Cash, a Pair of Gambling Dice, a Deck of Cards, a Western Lady, a Natvie American Lady, and the Steampunk Bandit. Of these, the Pile of Cash gives the lowest reward. For 3x symbols, you get a 10x multiplier based on the bet per line.
The highest-paying symbol is the Steampunk Bandit. If you manage to get 5 of this symbol, you get a fantastic 5000x multiplier based on the bet per line. Aside from the basic paytable, there is also the Cluster Paytable which offers different payouts for the vertical and horizontal symbol combinations - the maximum payout here is still the Steampunk Bandit symbol at 5000x.
This fun video slot from GamePlay Interactive does not have any Wild symbols or Scatter symbols. Also, you cannot win any Steampunk Bandit Free Spins. You may think that this makes the game boring, and gives it a low potential for payouts.
That's not true! The only Steampunk Bandits bonus feature - Cluster Wins, actually makes this game incredibly exciting. As mentioned above, this game has a non-traditional method of awarding winning combos. You can gain massive cluster wins when symbols are adjacent both horizontally and vertically.
For example, if you had 3x dice symbols on the first reel, and then 1x dice symbol on the top row of the second reel - this would count as a cluster win and count as 4x symbols for the payout calculation! This creates many ways to win and can lead to some amazing payouts.
The Steampunk Bandit’s RTP is a fantastic 96.95% - video slots should ideally have a minimum RTP percentage of 95, therefore this game is on par with that average. Gameplay Interactive has not given any volatility information for this title, however.
