A Cowboy Themed Slot Featuring Free Spins and Impressive Multipliers
Laredo is a county seat of Webb County, Texas, sitting on the Mexico/US border. The town is perhaps most famous for the song ‘Streets of Laredo’, made famous by artists such as Johnny Cash, Jim Reeves and Marty Robbins. The song features the death of a cowboy and is the inspiration for this Cowboy themed slot.
On the reels you’ll meet with a cowboy – in one symbol he’s showing his charming side, while in the other he is showing his gun-toting prowess to full effect. A sheriff, bags of cash, a train, holsters and an attractive female in a fetching pink boa all fill the reels too.
This WMS designed slot is perfect for those who want to enjoy the Wild West atmosphere. It is not all about the design, there is an impressive feature list too.

The main cowboy character in the game appears in two guises. The first of the two shows the cowboy in ‘charm’ mode, tipping his cream cowboy hat, with a smile on his face. This acts as the wild symbol and will substitute for any other symbol in the game, apart from the scatter. On reel three the wild will have a multiplier attached, ensuring any wins using this wild, will receive a nice boost.
To activate the free spins feature you’ll need to land the other cowboy symbol three times or more across any of the five reels. This time around, the cowboy has a gun in each hand – gone is the charming cowboy, to be replaced by a much meaner look on his face. The awards for this scatter symbol are as follows:
3 scatter symbols - awards 8 free spins
4 scatter symbols - awards 20 free spins
5 scatter symbols - awards 40 free spins
As you can see, the number of free spins can grow quickly. The spins can be retriggered at any time too, so it wouldn’t be a surprise to see the number of spins extended.
During the free spins, the wild multiplier on reel 3 is guaranteed to be a 10x wild. This can make a huge difference to any winning spin. A small win will be transformed into a big win, while a big win will become enormous. Land the biggest wins in the game with this 10x multiplier and you’re looking at a mega pay out.
There are two progressive bonuses in play, which you’ll see increase every time you win. The minor jackpot is guaranteed to pay before it reaches $50, while the major jackpot will be paid before it reaches $500. The jackpots are paid randomly after any spin, with more opportunity the higher the stake you play.
Laredo is a standard five-reel slot that pays from left to right. The number of win-lines in play can vary from casino to casino, although you’ll usually find between 20 and 50 lines in play. Aside from the wild and the scatter, the leading symbols include the sheriff, the feather boa wearing female, the train, the cash and the holster. The low end of the pay table features the playing card suits in hearts, diamonds, clubs and spades.
Anyone who has ever enjoyed a Cowboy movie will enjoy the design of this slot. All of the elements of a cowboy story are in there, including a train heist, a showdown, the serious looking sheriff and even the swing doors of a saloon. Throw in the Western style soundtrack and you have the complete impressive picture.
Laredo is an entertaining and atmospheric slot that will be enjoyed by all. The base game, with those wild multipliers can prove to be exciting, especially as a progressive jackpot could be awarded after any spin. However, it’s the free spins feature that sees this Wild West town at its showdown best. Those 10x multipliers can make a real difference to any spin, while the number of spins can be huge, especially if, just like the cowboy, you can retrigger too.
