Pistoleras is an online slot with a Western theme, but this time instead of cowboys there are sexy senorita’s. This slot game offers 5 reels with 25 paylines and is developed by Microgaming Quickfire. The design of Pistoleras is typically Western but with a romantic twist with some roses. The symbols consist of 3 beautiful senorita’s armed with revolvers and rifles. Also, the letters A, K, Q, J, and 10 are to be found in this game, this time in a Western style. The Pistoleras Scatter symbol has the most value, try to spin 5 Scatters for the highest payout. This slot has several bonus features like free spins and a bonus round. Later in this review we will go into some more specifics about those features. However, from this game you should not expect many 3D effects, the design is simple without that many detail. Yet the prizes are at least as attractive as the senorita’s, win up to 300x your bet!
Our first impressions of Pistoleras are good, with this slot it is all about the reels. Quickfire Microgaming clearly choose to not spend too much time on the surroundings, the 5 reels are the main focus. We see, among others the symbols of sexy senorita’s, but beware of what you say they are in fact armed with rifles and revolvers. Do not expect sophisticated 3D animations or sophisticated bonus rounds. Still Pistoleras looks fine, with nice symbols and a well-defined theme. The same goes for the sound, pretty straightforward. In the background we hear the sounds of a crowded casino floor. Personally we would rather hear some typical Western music, to suit the theme a bit more. This background music is also used in the Ariana slot, our criticism was the same with that title.
Bet and settings
Both the player with a small purse as the high roller can find the right bet settings at Pistoleras. The minimum bet is 25 pence, this can be increased up to 250 pound per round. You can vary between these bets with 47 different settings. You can also separately adjust the coin value and the number of coins you would like to bet at once. A nice feature of Microgaming Quikfire is that you can view your win history. Just click the Win button in the center, here you can view your top 5 winnings or the last 5 prizes. For the somewhat lazy cowboys among us this slot also offers the Autoplay function. Choose the number of rounds you want to play and let the game run automatically. The Pistoleros slot is orderly, many options are hidden and can be brought up by clicking on the >> icon. Click on the bottom on the right >> to display the other casino options.

Pistoleras offers bonus features such as Wilds, free spins and a bonus game, we will explain them in some more detail: The symbol with 2 revolvers, roses and game logo is the Wild symbol. The Wild symbol substitutes for any other symbol except the Scatter. Winning combinations with a Wild symbol ensure that your winnings are tripled!
When you spin 3, 4 or 5 Scatter symbols you will activate 15, 20 or 25 free spins. Even better is that the prizes you win during these free spin rounds are also tripled. The senorita symbols can be stacked. This means that it is easier to make a winning combination, stacked symbols occupy the space of 3 normal symbols.
The money bag also plays an important role in the Pistoleras slot. When you spin 3, 4 or 5 of these Scatter or Bonus symbols you will activate the Saloon Bonus. In this bonus round you will see 12 targets. Try to find 3 of the same senorita pictures by clicking on them. There are also hidden Wild symbols, try to find 3 of those and get the value of all symbols!
