Robbing a train has become synonymous with the old Wild Wild West. Coined during the Western expansion of the United States, the Wild Wild West was known for lawless pursuit of money, gold, power and adventure. American settlers heading West sought better lives at any cost including resorting to robbing a train.
Thanks to plethora of infamous bandits, crooks, thieves and robbers who called the Wild Wild West home, the new territories became famous for their train robberies back when trains were the king of locomotion. Cinema made the heists a national interest and decades later a train heist is the center of NetEntertainment's stellar slot offering, Wild Wild West: The Great Train Heist.
The 5-reel, 3-row, 10-payline video slot diverts from NetEnt's usual 3D graphics, instead featuring comic-book style imagery. The game is set in the Wild Wild West and centers on the train heist of a life time. Each player joins four other train robbers in a train heist worth up to 10,000 coins.
The four other accomplices include a stunning yet cunning female, a brut of a man, an experienced bandit and young hot-shot looking to make a name for himself. The five of you pursue the potential 10,000 coins by earning scatters, wilds and free spins.
The heist storyline plays out through comic book animations and Western themed audio, engulfing players in the adventure while still enjoying a topnotch slot. Players can experience the thrills of a classic train heist without any worry of being the next "Most Wanted" person.
The NetEnt title averages a 96.74% RTP (Return to Player) rate and a 21.60% hit frequency, so players are sure to enjoy spoils of the heist. The "grinder", or low variance slot, offers a minimum bet of £.01 and maximum bet of £100 if you bet £10 on all ten paylines.
Wild Wild West: The Great Train Heist is ripe with special features to enjoy. The unique Free Spins system dictates the rest of the Scatter and Wild bonuses and is worth checking out on its own merit. Instead of offering Wilds and Scatters and Free Spins randomly throughout gameplay, NetEnt has designed a unique system to incorporate them all together.
First players are offered Scatters throughout regular gameplay. Once at least three Scatters are hit, Players are awarded Free Spins. Just before each Free Spin, players are promoted to spin a wheel featuring four Wild symbols. The four Wilds include:
Once a Wild symbol is landed on, that symbol is spread to other symbols on the first three reels for each spin and remains active for the rest of the Free Spin. If the players hit another bonus while in the Free Spin, the Wild expands to more symbols.
The other notable feature of Wild Wild West: The Great Train Heist is a mini-game called Pick & Click offered as an addition to the normal gameplay. The mini game kicks off when a player hits three bonuses on one spin. All three bonuses then turn to golden safes and the rest of the symbols are darkened.
The player is then prompted to select one of the three safes to reveal what prize they've won. Each safe holds a different prize ranging from 5x to 50x the coins of the original bet offering a chance to really cash in.
