The top 10 most volatile (high variance) Netent Slots

Pragmatic Play’s Cowboys Gold slot offers a beautiful theme and catchy features, but high wins? Hell no!

Think of slots like Dead or Alive 2, Deadwood of Nolimit City or Money Train 2 of Relax Gaming. These are all slots that belong to the top 10 of the most volatile slots.

The slot features have all the ingredients to make this slot equally volatile.

Still, interestingly enough, the slot has a medium variance, and the win potential is not as spectacular as expected.

Cowboys Gold: The maximum win is 6,065x the bet

There is nothing wrong with such a top win, but I guess I am not telling you anything new when I say it’s more important to know what your real odds are of landing wins of this magnitude.


Number of paylines: 5×3 setup,  10 fixed paylines

RTP and variance: 96.5%, Medium variance

Maximum win: 6,065x

Betting range: €0,25 – €100

Bonus features: Free spins with Money Collect Feature

Casino Hipster verdict: Fine but not great. With such a theme, you expect more win potential.

Cowboys Gold slot – Gameplay and Features

Cowboys Gold has 5 reels with 3 rows of symbols, and there are 10 fixed paylines.

The high-paying symbols in the main game are the Gold Horseshoes, Riggs, Whiskey Bottles and Guns. The low-paying symbols are the J, Q, K and A.

Furthermore, you have Wild symbols (Sheriff Badges) that replace all symbols except Scatters (Gold Skulls). By the way, these look fantastic and match the famous Damien Hirst skull closely!

How to get the Free Spins?

You receive 10 free spins if you spin 3 Scatters on the three middle reels.

These can retrigger up to 3 times if you manage to spin a Scatter 3 times during the free spins.

In the best case, you have a total of 25 free spins.

The free spins with the Money Collect Feature

Now, let the shooting begin.

As soon as the free spins start, you’ll see four different types of cowboy symbols that may appear on the reels (in addition to the standard symbols). These cowboy symbols have golden coins worth 1x to as much as 100x the stake.

If you manage to spin a cowboy with a red mouth cap (the Collect symbol) on the last reel, the cash wins will be collected and added to your balance.

If you retrigger 5 extra additional free spins, the cowboy with red mouth cap gets an x2 multiplier. All wins collected afterwards are multiplied by x2. Nothing wrong with that!

If you retrigger 5 free spins again, the collect symbol gets an x3 multiplier, and if you manage to activate the last 5 free spins, you’ll end up with an x5 multiplier!

The recipe is simple. Spin as many cowboy symbols as possible (preferably with high cash wins) and aim for the Collect symbol (the cowboy with red mouth cap).

Payout percentage (RTP)

The payout percentage of Cowboys Gold is a great 96.5% and is in line with the RTP of most Pragmatic Play slots.

It is, however, possible that online casinos offer the same game at a lower RTP. In that case, go to another online casino.

Cowboys Gold slot – a medium variance

The variance of Cowboys Gold is “medium,” according to Pragmatic Play.  We expect top wins to be in the hundreds rather than the thousands of times the bet.

And that’s, intuitively, a bit strange, given that Wild West-themed slots are often associated with towering high variance slots.
