New Pragmatic Play Bronco Spirit Pokie

Tia Winter | 15 May 2020

The American Plains were very different in the 17th century, with wild horses running free, great empty expanses stretching off seemingly forever, and the tribes of the First Nations living out their lives. America is very different now, but these ancient lands can still be explored in the new Bronco Spirit pokie.

Bronco Spirit, created by Pragmatic Play, aims to capture the atmosphere of North America as it once was, focusing on highly detailed, hand drawn artwork, and a mesmerising soundtrack. The backdrop of the game is a sunset kissed landscape, complete with cactuses, tall grass, and towering canyons. This attention to detail, and love for the culture, extends to the symbols. Images include a tomahawk, smoking pipe, drum, campfire, and a beautiful native woman.

Spirited Features

The immaculate artwork in Bronco Spirit is backed up by 5 reels, 4 rows, and a 75 payline system. In terms of special features, the pokie focuses on progressive multipliers, Free Spins, and a ton of other interesting perks.

The most notable feature of the game is the Free Spins bonus round. If 3 or more bonus symbols are matched, the player will be presented with an interesting choice. They can select either 15 Free Spins with 4 Wilds on the reels, or 5 Free Spins with 7 Wilds on the reels. Naturally, more Wilds means a potential increase in wins. It is up to the player to decide which the better option is, creating an interesting dilemma that must be solved each time a Bonus round is triggered.

The Western Themed Revolution

Chief commercial officer at Pragmatic Play, Melissa Summerfield, commented on the release of Bronco Spirit. She first drew attention to the pokie’s impressive artwork, stating that the internal team that had handled the visuals were some of the most talented in the industry.

She then also declared that the pokie had come about due to an increased interest in Wild West themed titles. Bronco Spirit had come about in direct response to that demand, she confirmed, though didn’t mention if there were other, similarly themed games in the works.

She concluded by saying that she hoped players would be pleased to pull on a hat, jump onto a stallion, and race into the dusty landscape presented by the new title.

Pragmatic Play is known to release at least 4 new pokies a month, so there should be more to look forward in the near future.
