Overall, as slight spin on the standard single reel slot, Turkey Shoot Wild X Slots is another entry in the popular Wild X genre that manages to build on the success of what came before it without veering too far from the time tested formula. The main draws are the slight quirks of the premise and the wide range of betting mechanics, which will be enough to keep most people playing for hours trying to win it big.
Zany in title and theme, Turkey Shoot Wild X Slots is a standard slot machine of old in all but one central premise: the turkey shoot. Everything else is akin to a classic Vegas casino, as if you were sitting down with your drink while waiting for a show and hoping to win it big. There really is not much of an effort outside of that to attempt to differentiate it, but it is compelling enough to keep playing once the money starts rolling in.
Although the point is supposed to be the turkey, there honestly is not much here that ties the game back to its mascot, the main focus being on the game play and the pacing of it.
Unlike a turkey shoot, the presentation of Turkey Shoot Wild X Slots is nothing to write home about. The only quirk or change here being that it features a turkey on top, the main point of the game being to win more money by collecting the symbols that match up with that. Everything is fairly clear and standard otherwise, featuring the bars and bells and 7s we are all used to if we have been playing slots long enough to appreciate what is on offer here.
It is simple, well done enough, and elegant in its own way, but nothing spectacular, and certainly nothing to write home about.
Unfortunately, the mechanics here are also fairly standard. Coins range from a single cent to 50 cents, allowing for a spin of $1 to $10 at most. You can bet between one and three coins in your quest to win it all.
The main draw here is the jack pot on display, which is worth a whopping 15,000 coins! Added to that the fact that you can earn 2 5x symbols and you can end up with a prize worth 25x your initial wager.
There is also a bonus round to keep things interesting, activating when enough turkey symbols are matched during play. This adds a bit of fun to things outside of the normal spinning the reel fair, but is not all that different than the main game to be honest.
