There has been a noticeable trend with online slot software providers, re-releasing popular titles with new and exciting features. For example you will find slots being released with the Megaways mechanic to make their older slots more appealing to the newer generation. Nolimit City has taken this route with their release of DeadWood xNudge, where we once again join the gang of gun wielding cowboys. This time around the slot is bigger and badder in every respect, and if this appeals to you then you should keep reading our DeadWood xNudge review below!
DeadWood xNudge features a beautifully designed western theme, with top class animations to go along with it. No shortcuts have been taken and players will feel completely immersed in the gunslinger theme which takes place in Deadwood. We would even go as far as saying that Nolimit City has produced the best looking western theme slot of all time! It really is that good.
DeadWood xNudge features a gaming layout that is unconventional. There are 5 reels in total, with the other reels containing 3 symbols and the middle reels containing 4 symbols, There are a possible 576 ways to win, with payouts calculated from left to right.

Featured in DeadWood xNudge are 10 standard pay symbols, where landing 3 or more will result in a winning combination. Of these 10 symbols include low paying Ace-10 playing card symbols which will payout from between 0.05x-1.25x your bet.

The highest paying symbol of the lot is the gold bar, which starts paying out 7.75x your stake for landing 3 of a kind.
Bonus symbols include the hunter wild, which appears on reels 2,3 or 4. This wild is 4 rows high and will ‘nudge’ itself to become fully visible on the reels whenever it lands. The wild will substitute for all symbols on the reels to create winning combinations.
The second bonus symbol present is the scatter, which is a dead animal skull, and will award free spins for landing 3 or more.
Lastly we have the sheriff’s badge, which is the bonus symbol that leads to the shoot out bonus feature. These will be covered in more detail below.
In true Nolimit City fashion, there are tons of unique bonus features available to add to the excitement.
Landing the sheriff's badge on reels 1 and 5 will trigger the shoot out bonus feature. During the bonus all low value symbols on reels 2, 3 and 4 will transform into wild symbols. This will lead to huge payouts as only premium symbols will be in play.
Three or more animal skull scatter symbols launch free spins, of which there are two options. Firstly there is the Hunter free spins. Here there is a guarantee of one or more hunter wilds landing each time you spin the reels. If you manage to land 2 sheriff’s badges the free spin mode will be upgraded to shootout hunter spins. The second free spin option is Gunslinger spins, where you will be awarded a multiplier that increases with each successful ‘nudge’. Landing two or more sheriff's badges during this game will upgrade you to shootout gunslinger spins.
Shootout free spins can be triggered in the base game as well as during free spins. This bonus feature involves the sheriff’s badge being locked into position, while the shootout feature commences - delivering big payouts.
