The vast open space of America is filled with wildlife (not all of it friendly) and has inspired travelers for generations. The amazing landscapes that change throughout each season are so popular that it’s no surprise slot game developers visit the space time and again.

We recently introduced Ainsworth slots to TwinSpires Casino, and our players now enjoy several new titles that appeal to any nature-loving gambler. They include Mustang Money and also the Eagle Bucks slot machine.

Both are similar in style and looks, and this guide gives you the lowdown on the soaraway Eagle Bucks slot.

How to Play Eagle Bucks Slots

There’s no doubting the Eagle Bucks slot machine is out there in the wild. Set against a wilderness of trees and mountains and basking in the golden glow of a setting sun, you’re instantly in the mood for spotting some of the famed four-legged and winged locals.

After just one spin of the five reels, each of which has three rows, you will meet the stars of the show. Top of the local wildlife is the eagle, which is not only the highest paying symbol, but it also acts as a wild, substituting for all others, except for the scatter.

The symbols then descend in money order, from the rocky arch to the wolf, deer, buffalo, and a nest of eggs. I’m no zoologist, but I think the eggs belong to the eagle. As usual, you then have a selection of low-paying card symbols. As with most Ainsworth games, these run from 9 through Ace, and the design of these matches those in Mustang Money. You only need two of the wolf or arch symbols to win, but three of all the others.

The Eagle Bucks slot base game is simple to play. There is a maximum of 20 paylines, and you get to choose how many you wish to play. Just one is as low as 1c – but the cost goes up for multiple lines, plus you can increase the size of your bet to a maximum of $100 a go.

Once you get going, there are some reasonable wins to be had, with the eagle paying out most.

But the biggest winnings will come if you can spark the ten free spins bonus round. To do so, you must land three or more of the Shield symbol, which has the game logo on it.

There are two versions of the feature, randomly chosen. On the first, the stacked wilds can appear on reels 2, 3, 4, and 5. But in the second version, reel five is always stacked wild, and more can land on reels 2, 3, and 4. Two arch or wolf symbols do not pay out in the bonus feature.

A nice final touch is that if you land another three or more Shield scatters during the free spins round, you get another five free spins on top.

Eagle Bucks Slots RTP

The published return to player (RTP) figure for the Eagle Bucks slot machine is 94.07%, which is on the low side. However, this is not necessarily a bad thing because it implies you may not get many regular wins on the reels, but you can collect a big prize once in a while if you are patient.
