Tombstone No Mercy

When developer Nolimit City makes high-volatile slots, they mean business. Tombstone No Mercy is the third installation in the “Tombstone” series, and they just keep getting better! As always, these games are all about creating the biggest multipliers and securing the highest wins the industry has to offer – just don’t get shot!

Introduction – Tombstone No Mercy

Tombstone No Mercy is a western themed slot made by Nolimit City. It comes with everything you can expect from this provider, including max volatility and several options for buying bonuses.

The original Tombstone slot was released in 2019, and would prove to be the game that made developer Nolimit City one of the most popular in the business. They followed up with Tombstone RIP three years later in 2022, which took it to the next level with payouts up to 300,000x the bet.

Tombstone No Mercy was released in April 2024 and continues where the predecessors left off. It’s primarily based on the original, just with lots of more features. The max win potential isn’t nearly as ridiculously high as in the second installment, but rest assured there are big wins to be had also here!

Layout, payouts, and other info

Tombstone No Mercy has 5 reels in a row format of 2-3-3-3-2, meaning the first and last reel has one less row than the others. There are no fixed paylines, which results in 108 ways to win per spin.

Wins are generated by landing three or more symbols in a row, starting on the left-most reel. The symbols are made up of typical western items, such as dynamite, gold bars, money bags, and revolvers. The TNT dynamite is the most valuable standard symbol, paying out 6x the stake for five in a row.

This game is all about multipliers however, starting with the Outlaw Wilds. These land stacked on the reels, and nudge into place when they are partly off-screen. For each nudge, a win multiplier is added up to 3x.

Bets range from €0.20 to €100 per spin, and the volatility is apparently ‘extreme’ according to the developer. In other words, this is first and foremost a slot for the hardcore gamblers! The max win clocks in at 16,480x the stake and the standard RTP is 96.05%.

Tombstone No Mercy slot features

Slots like these are all about the features. Without them, long stretches of winless spins are entirely possible. When they hit however, the wait is absolutely worth it! Tombstone No Mercy comes with three different types of free spins, as well as progressive multipliers and the Nolimit City features xNudge and xBet.

Outlaw Wilds (xNudge)

These special wild symbols are easily recognizable as three outlaws, called Skinny Joe, Edda Star, and El Gordo. They land stacked to fill the reel, and when they land partially in sight, they will nudge into place. For each nudge, the win multiplier increases by 1x!

Free spins

Free spins come in three different packages, with increasing potential. The bonus rounds are triggered by a combination of special symbols and scatters, landing either on specific reels or anywhere. 

  • Justice Spins: With a Sheriff Badge on reel 1 and a Marshall Badge on reel 5, you are awarded 3 Justice Spins. This is the shortest bonus round, but it can be very lucrative – during those three spins, Outlaw Wilds are sticky!
  • Gunslinger Spins: Landing three regular scatters gets you 10 Gunslinger Spins. In this bonus, you want as many Outlaw Wilds on the edges of the reels as possible. When a wild is nudged into place, their multiplier is locked in for the remainder of your spins.
  • Bounty Spins: This monster bonus round requires both the Sheriff and Marshall Badge PLUS three scatters in the middle! If you manage that, you win 12 Bounty Spins. In this feature, both the effects from Justice and Gunslinger are combined. Meaning you get progressive and sticky multiplier wilds!

Feature Buys and xBet

 Tombstone No Mercy comes with several options for buying features. Click on the lightning icon on the right side of the screen to see available options, where you can buy both bonus rounds and smaller features called Boosters. Also note that the game’s RTP changes slightly when you buy features.

  • 2x the bet: Guaranteed to land either a scatter or an Outlaw Wild on every spin
  • 5x the bet: An Outlaw Wild is guaranteed to land on reel 2, 3 or 4
  • 50x the bet: Justice Spins
  • 65x the bet: The Gunslinger Bonus
  • 950x the bet: Bounty Spins

In addition to these, you also have two Lucky Draw options that comes in at 242x and 360x the bet.

Conclusion and verdict

Tombstone No Mercy is not for the faint hearted. Slots like these are all about chasing that elusive mega win that gets you in the green for the remainder of the month – or more. That means cold streaks must be expected, where the game comes at you hard without giving much back. 

If you can withstand it however, or just get very lucky, the reward may be humongous! With wins up to more than 16,000x the stake, which are actually quite frequently paid out, it’s easy to see why slots of this nature become popular.

It’s a long way away from the fruity NetEnt classics that we all enjoyed once upon a time. But times change, and slots like Tombstone No Mercy is the result. Happy hunting!
