The first Slot War for the year 2022 is between 2 powerful NoLimit City releases – Tombstone and Tombstone RIP. The first one has the legendary status among iGamers while the second one is all about hard-core reel-spinning sessions. Let’s compare them and see which one is exiting the ring as a newly crowned Slot War winner.
Round 1: Winning Potential & RTP
The winning potential in Tombstone RIP is capped at the amazing 300,000x the bet. Compared to the Tombstone released in 2019 where the max win is set at 11,456x the stake, the RIP version is definitely promising much larger wins and more exciting betting sessions. However, the RTP value is on the lower side for the latest cowboy-inspired NoLimit slot with just 96,08% while original Tombstone comes with 96.19%.
Round 2: Bonus Features
When it comes to special bonus features, Tombstone features 3 types of Free Spins rounds (Justice, Gunslinger, and Bounty Spins) as well as expanding xNudge Wilds and progressive win multiplier. This was the magic combination that made this release extremely popular in the iGaming community. However, Tombstone RIP offers these and more!
Aside from xNudge Wilds, the special Wild symbol also appears in its standard form on the reels 2 to 5 while Splitting Wilds can only hit in the middle 3 reels. The famous software provider has made this game to be brutal – when it comes to winning as well as losing. The title has an xRIP feature that is triggered on any spin in both base and bonus game where the win is smaller than the size of the bet. When this happens, there is NO PAYOUT!
Scatters are important as always as they activate special gaming extras. This release also comes with 2 types of Free Spins round – Hang ‘Em High and Boothill Free Spins. Win Multipliers are available in both rounds but in Hang ‘Em it is increased when one of the Wilds lands while in Boothill players have this win multiplier plus a random multiplier (5x – 999x) that is assigned to a Cowboy symbol and than applied to the overall multiplier.
Round 3: Visual and Audio Effects
In terms of visuals, both games are featuring outstanding graphics, smooth and exciting animations with amazing soundtracks. However, there is a difference in the way Wild West was depicted in these slots. While Tombstone has that standard classic cowboy vibe, the RIP version is darker in depicting the life and death in the old American West.
And The Winner Is…
With that breathtaking winning potential of 300,000x the bet, there is no way Tombstone RIP is not ending this round as a winner. Compared to the 11,000x in the original Tombstone, the difference is rather great. While visuals are top-notch in both releases, there are more bonus features in the RIP version.
Overall, the Tombstone RIP slot is exiting the ring as the winner. The volatility is insanely high (that’s how the provider described it) so if you’re looking for ultimate reel-spinning sessions, this is definitely where you’ll find it.
