Without a doubt, pragmatic Play and Play’n GO are the two most productive online casino game developers. For example, Pragmatic Play releases new slots almost every week. Unfortunately, their quality is not always very consistent.

Bronco Spirit is a Pragmatic Play video slot with a beautiful Southwestern USA theme, but sadly the gameplay is not too exciting

Sometimes they are superb, like Mysterious and Wild West Gold, and sometimes you think, “Meh.”

Bronco Spirit, unfortunately, falls into the latter category. We’ve seen the game mechanism before, with Golden Beauty (also a Pragmatic Play slot). And the South-West theme, with wild horses, Indians and mesas, has also passed us by a couple of times, for example, in Wolf Gold and Mustang Gold.

So it’s mainly a snack, a release to at least make sure there’s a new Pragmatic Play slot in the online casinos’ lobbies.

Bronco Spirit gameplay and features

Bronco Spirit has 75 fixed paylines, divided over 5 reels with 4 rows of symbols.

The variance is medium, although it is not entirely clear what the maximum payout is. We estimate it to be about 2,000 x the total bet.

Bets are made with a bet range between 25 cents and $€ 125 per spin.

The theoretical payout rate is right on the money: 96.51%.

Save wilds for a (hopefully) grand finale

Central to Bronco Spirit is the savings mechanism for the wilds. The game is divided into sessions of 10 spins.

In the first nine spins, all golden Bronco scatters are saved. Each scatter awards you one wild, placed on the reels in the tenth (and last) spin of the session.

In a reasonable round, you have saved 6-8 wilds. A good set provides you with 9 or more wilds.

The more wilds, the higher the chance of a mega payout in that essential tenth spin.

Symbols and payouts

Everything with Bronco Spirit revolves around the wild symbols and whether you can combine these extra wilds in the 10th spin with one of the premium symbols.

Five Bronco’s on an active payline earn you 10 x the total bet. Five Indians or Indian feathered warbonnets (originally worn into battle but nowadays primarily used for ceremonial occasions) payout 5 x the total bet.

Other high symbols are the tipi (traditional tent), the axe, the peace pipe and the drum. A 5-of-a-kind with these symbols earns you between 2 x and 3 x the bet.

The low symbols barely play a role in the game.

Free spins bonus

3, 4 or 5 scattered bonus symbols will activate the free spins bonus for you.

Now you can choose one of two free spins bonuses.

Each variant has its risk profile (the number of spins depends on the number of scatters):

  • 15, 30 or 45 free spins with 4 wilds (low risk)
  • 5, 10 or 15 free spins with 7 wilds (high risk)

What do you choose? Lots of free spins with lower payouts or few free spins with the chance of mega payouts?

Free spins can be retriggered without limit.

Our verdict on Bronco Spirit

The Bronco Spirit game is mainly a video slot that annoys us.

The wild collection feature may sound like fun (in theory), but it is most frustrating when spinning.

After all, you’re suckered into the game and forced to finish those sets of 10 spins over and over again.

It’s also apparent that you keep spinning a lot of wilds during the first few spins, after which the wilds immediately dry up, and you end up with the same number of wilds.

Bronco Spirit often teases you but seldom makes out. An excellent time to try a better rewarding Pragmatic Play slot or not?

The only reason for us to play this slot is to apply the Hit and Run casino strategy. Play a maximum of 20 or 30 spins (2 or 3 sets) with a big bet and hope for the free spins bonus to drop or an excellent number of rounded up wilds.

Did you land a good payout of 100 x the bet or more? Then you have to get out of there really fast, bolt like you stole the Bronco. Hit and Run.
