Ready for release on 23rd February 2017!
Get your six-shooter, Winchester and bronco ready for a wild adventure on the latest Netent creation. Join the four villains in “The Great Train Heist™” to secure your share of the loot. This comic-style game is an action packed 5-reel, 3-row slot with 10 fixed pay lines, set in the “good ol’ Wild Wild West” and boasts a whole array of Wild features in Free Spins and extra bonus rounds with potential for Mega and Super Mega Wins.
As usual the slot is in HTML5 format with Netent’s high standard of graphics and animations while some Western soundtrack is played during the spins. Set in a desert style background with a train passing it features fittingly a six-shooter barrel as SPIN button. Setting bet level, coin value and auto spin is clear and crisp although yet again Netent opted for fixed pay lines, seems to become the norm these days.
Wild Wild West: The Great Train Heist™ is a 5-reel, 3-row, 10-fixed line video slot with Free Spins, four Wild features and a Bonus round. Best sizes are from €/$/£ 0.10 – 100 with the highest 5OAK paying 50x and the lowest 8x stake. RTP is stated with 96.74% for this medium variance slot in HTML5 format that will be available for play on Desktop, Mobile and Tablet.
Low paying symbols are common card symbols such as club, heart, spade and diamond whereas high paying symbols are the four villains and the Wild symbol. Scatters are 7’s appearing on all reels and bonus symbols are safes landing on reels 1, 3 and 5 only. Pretty simple and straightforward.
Free Spins Bonus Round
3, 4 or 5 scatter landing anywhere on the screen will trigger the bonus round, awarding 10, 20 or 30 Free Spins with uncapped re-triggers. The Wild Selector Wheel appears first with four possible Wild features for the Free Spins. These are Regular Wild, Expanding Wild, X2 Multiplier Wild, Spreading Wild. After clicking on “Stop” the wheel will randomly stop on one of the features which will be active throughout the Free Spins.
Additionally, during Free Spins, an Overlay Wild symbol randomly appears on reels 1 – 3 in every spin and works the same as the active Wild feature. This gives the slot the highest potential if the selector result is the Expanding Wild and you hit multiple wilds on the front reels. Having a Wild on all reels would lead to the top pay on this slot which is a total of 10x 5OAK Wilds at 50x stake, equaling 500x stake.
Pick and Click Feature
The feature is the less desirable bonus on this slot as the potential pay is only between 5x – 50x stake. Not superbly high but OK to keep you going. Hitting the three Safe symbols on Reels 1, 3 and 5 will activate the bonus allowing only one pick to reveal the prize. Just for verification it will reveal the other two numbers after the pick, which will be either annoying to see that the lowest one has been picked or a sigh of relief that one has opted for the highest prize.
Hmmm, I am sort of in between with this slot. While it seems very entertaining and graphically well made I am somewhat hesitant to think that it will produce big wins on a regular basis. On top the highest single pay is only 50x stake, far from the likes of similar 10-liners such as Book of Ra / Book of Dead with 500x stake. But then those are very high variance games and sure balance killers if they don’t perform while Wild Wild West: The Great Train Heist™ is rather low to medium variance giving the player less potential for big wins but longer lasting entertainment.
Other than that, I think the slot is well designed, has ample features, awesome animations and should be on everyone’s “must try” list when it is released on 23rd February 2017.
Peng, Peng, Peng! Get ready for the great heist!
