The western theme isn’t anything we haven’t seen before, but it’s all about the unique and high-quality graphics, symbols, and visuals along with the Nobleways mechanic that make Wanted Outlaws stand out.
Video Wanted Outlaws™ – Microgaming
The slot game places you right smack dab in the middle of a small town with saloons, bars, and shops that line the streets. You’re positioned in the middle of the main street as if you’re about to partake in a good old-fashioned duel.
The grid itself has an old and rustic design that seems to be on a make-shift signboard. The 5×5 reel offers a bit more space than other standard grids and could possibly offer more payways, but more on that later.
While the western theme can be considered overdone, Wanted Outlaws sets itself apart with higher chances at wins and the Nobelways system.
If you were hoping for more paylines from the 5×5 grid design, you’d be right! Wanted Outlaws offers a very healthy and very high 3,125 paylines. As a result of a ton of paylines, their max payout is also higher than the average game at 2,500x your initial bet.
To get the highest number possible, we’d suggest betting on the higher end of the betting range, which spans from 0.1 - 100. The RTP (return to player) is a healthy 96.41% with a high hit frequency. One thing to note is the high volatility rating of the game, but when you take into account the RTP and hit frequency, they pretty much balance each other out.

You can expect decent payouts throughout the game thanks to the statistics and the help of the bonus features, which we will get into next.
One of the most lucrative symbols in Wanted Outlaws is the wild, which happens to be the sheriff’s happy face. They can sub out all other symbols, but they only appear on the last 4 reels during free spins.
The free spins are where it’s at in Wanted Outlaws, so you need to keep your fingers crossed that you land them constantly. It shouldn’t be that hard because all you need is their presence on at least 3 of the 5 reels.
Then you have the wanted poster, which also offers prizes from 2 to 200x your initial bet. You trigger this feature by landing the characters that are “wanted.” Unfortunately, it’s not that simple. To get the rewards promised on those posters, you also need the sheriff to be present during those spins.

After all, you can’t arrest a wanted perpetrator without the proper authorities.
Even for an overdone theme, Wanted Outlaws deserves a player’s attention thanks to its Nobleways system, high max payout, and a high number of payways. The RTP is more than good at a 96.41% couple with a high hit rate. The only thing that will take a second thought is the high volatility. But once you consider all the other bonuses the game affords you, the high volatility is understandable.
We also love the design and concept of apprehending wanted criminals to up the stakes. Wanted Outlaws will get your adrenaline pumping with every spin as you cross your fingers and hope you get the wanted sign and the sheriff on the same spin to take home a hefty sum.
