Microgaming Games Review – Pistoleras Slot

Calamity Jane is definitely the most popular sharp-shooting cowgirl ever seen in the west. However, you won’t be facing any calamities when you try the newest slot by Microgaming- Pistoleras.

The buxom cowgirls’ trio is the highlight of the game. The three ladies, who appear to be the ancient version of the Charlie’s Angels are still quite glamorous and equally deadly!

The slot

Pistoleras SlotThis is a 5×3 basic reel slot. It has twenty five fixed operational paylines for each spin. Spins begin at merely 0.25. This makes it an affordable slot for all, even though it is possible to increase the stakes so as to suit the requirements of individual players.

All three glamorous girls have their symbol on the reels (2, 3 or 4 symbols high). If you get a number matching the symbol stacked over the reels, huge wins can come to you across the numerous paylines. If a Wild is active on the payline, you get triple the amount of money.

Game scatters

The slot also offers two internal game scatters. This includes the Loot scatter which needs to rest on the third, fourth and fifth reels. When this happens, a Saloon Bonus is triggered and you can choose from twelve targets. They have 3 pictures (of a girl) and 3 wilds behind them. You can continue picking till a set of 3 is complete and win bonuses for each, unless you choose all 3 wilds. In this case, you get all the bonuses.

The Coach scatter is the usual scatter which offers access to free spins when the players lands three, four or five across reels. This triggers three, four or five spins (which can be re-triggered). All free spins winnings will be subjected to a fabulous 3x multiplier as well!

Bitcoins Increase Casinos’ Business

In January 2014, the Golden Gate Hotel and Casino and the D Las Vegas Casino, started accepting bitcoins as payment for non-gaming transactions. Since then, the casinos, owned by Derek Stevens, have witnessed a considerable rise in their business and started receiving more patrons from Europe and Asia too. According to Stevens, who did not reveal any numbers, the D has seen more bitcoin transactions compared to the Golden Gate.

New bitcoin ATM

BitcoinsLast year, the D became the first casino to set up a bitcoin ATM to help ease transactions. The ATM, from Robocoin, which could hold more than half a million dollars in cash, has now been replaced by Genmega G6000 machine, though Stevens was not very forthcoming on the causes for the change. Robocoin opened its first bitcoin ATM in a coffee shop in Canada and saw transactions worth a million dollars in its first month.

Currently, bitcoin is accepted in three of the D’s restaurants as well as the front desks of both casinos. Of the three restaurants that accept bitcoins at the D, American Coney Island, which serves classic American cuisine, receives the most number of bitcoin transactions. Stevens commented that a possible reason could be that the restaurant offered lower prices when compared with the other two: the D Grill and Andiamo Italian Steakhouse.

Factors affecting Bitcoin transactions

The value of the virtual currency is notoriously volatile and its price at any given time determines if customers are willing to use it. Stevens also said that the local bitcoin community frequently visits the casinos in support of this method of payment. A technology conference happening in the region also plays an important role in affecting possibly affects the number of transactions taking place for this virtual currency.
