Tombstone (Nolimit City): Overview
Tombstone is a western-themed 5-reel, 108-payline slot with geometric reels that are 2-3-3-3-2 symbols high. Powered by Swedish provider Nolimit City, it's the first title from this rather small studio we've felt to be intriguing enough to feature on the site. Playable from 10 cents to 50€ per spin on mobile devices, desktop computers and tablets, Tombstone is a highly volatile, fast-paced slot with heavy focus on different wild features.
Set on the porch of a typical western saloon and with a spaghetti western inspired instrumental playing in the background, symbols on the reels include A to J royals along with guns, horseshoes, bags of money, gold bars and dynamite. The latter is the most rewarding with 5 on a full payline will giving you 0.6 times your stake. Central to the game are the 3 wild symbols which appear fully stacked on the three middle reels only.
These wilds, known as Outlaw wilds, are represented by wanted posters displaying the faces of Edda Star (bank robber), El Gordo (notorious bandit) and Skinny Joe (horse thief). When these wilds appear party in view, they'll nudge into place and with every nudge, the win multiplier increases by 1 up to a maximum of 3x.
Tombstone (Nolimit City): Features
There are also 3 free spins features to trigger in Tombstone:
- Justice Spins - this feature is awarded when a Sheriff and Marshall badge appear on the first and last reels. Here, you'll get 3 spins where all wilds that appear on the reels remain sticky.
- Gunslinger Spins - if you land 3 scatter symbols, you'll trigger the Gunslinger Spins feature. Starting with 10 free spins, the Outlaw wilds will give you an unlimited win multiplier that sticks throughout. Again, every time the wild nudges, the multiplier increases by one.
- Bounty Spins - to initiate this feature, you need to land the Sheriff and Marshall badge on the first and last reel along with the 3 scatters. Starting with 12 free spins, this feature is a combo of the Justice Spins and Gunslinger Spins. Furthermore, each scatter that appears in view will add an extra spin to your total.
Tombstone (Nolimit City): Verdict
Taking inspiration from NetEnt's classic 2009 release Dead or Alive, Tombstone is an outstanding slot from Nolimit City and by far the best one they've managed to produce up until now. The design is excellent, as is the gameplay which offers all-around thrilling action in the base game as well as in the bonus features. High variance, you can land wins of over 11,000 times your stake.
If you're a fan of Tombstone we suggest you try the extremely volatile sequel Tombstone RIP. For more Western-themed slots from the same provider, we also recommend Deadwood, which was voted the second-best slot of the year in the 2020 Bigwinboard Awards. A second instalment was also released in 2021 titled El Paso Gunfight, offering even bigger rewards.
Nolimit City brings some much-needed variation to the ageing wild formula in new slot Tombstone.
