Wild Wild West: The Great Train Heist
Yeehaw! Polish your six-shooter and join the four outlaws as they are planning the Great Train Heist on the Wild Wild West slot by NetEnt. Trigger free spins with four different wild modifiers or blow up the safe to get your hands on the loot before riding off into the sunset on your bronco with wins of up to 500 times your bet in a single spin.
Wild Wild West: The Great Train Heist is a video slot with five reels, three rows and 10 fixed pay lines. Wins are awarded for three to five matching symbols on a line from left to right only. Ride your bronco into the sunset on desktop or mobile from 0.10 to 100 credits per spin. The game has medium volatility with an RTP of 96.74%.
Set in the Western plains with a train passing through the background, the game window is held in an iron frame with the four outlaws dominating on the reels. NetEnt included some intricate details in their cartoon-style design such as a six-shooter barrel as the SPIN button. A Western soundtrack keeps things lively at all times.
The pay symbols start at the low end with the card suits – clubs, hearts, spades and diamonds – awarding 8x to 10x your bet for a single five of a kind. The premiums are the four outlaws – the kid, a grim-looking giant with a knife, a cigar-smoking one-eye gunslinger and the female leader of the gang. Hit five on a line to win 20x to 50x your bet.
An icon marked with the word itself is the wild symbol, substituting for all regular symbols and also yielding 50x your stake when five land across the reels. A train engine front marked with a lucky 7 is the scatter while a golden safe acts as the bonus symbol.
Wild Wild West: The Great Train Heist Slot Features
The game is part of NetEnt’s series for recreational players that look for lots of noise, colours and animations as well as a range of features that ensure entertaining slotting sessions. The win potential of 500x bet is nothing to shout about but it can deliver frequent medium-sized wins.
The less desirable bonus element is the Pick-and-Click feature as it has the potential to pay between 5x and 50x your total bet only. To trigger it you will need to land safe symbols on reels one, three and five in one spin. You can pick one of the three to reveal your prize. And just to add insult to injury it will disclose as well the other two which are more often showing a better win. Never mind, there is more.
Hit three, our or five scatters anywhere on the reels to trigger 10, 20 and 30 free spins respectively, however, no coin win. The feature can be retriggered indefinitely. The game will lead to a second screen, displaying a wheel with four segments, each wit ha different wild modifier. You get one spin on it to determine which you will be benefiting throughout your bonus round – Regular Wild (blue background), Expanding Wild (yellow background) – expands to cover the reel, X2 Multiplier Wild (red background) – multiplies any win it is part of and lastly Spreading Wild (green background) will spread one extra wild in one direction. After clicking on “Stop” the selector will randomly stop on one of the wilds.
Additionally, an Overlay Wild symbol randomly appears on reels one to three on every free spin that will work in the same way as the selected wild. The best option is the Expanding Wild as landing one on each reel will lead to a full screen of wilds and the maximum win in a single spin of 500 times your bet.
If you are looking for a Wild West reel adventure that won’t blow your bank, then this creation is just right for you. Low to medium variance, at best medium win potential but lots of noise and ample features. Great entertainment but do not expect wins going past the 1,000x bet mark. Overall, Wild Wild West: The Great Train Heist is well designed and follows a complete storyline of an outlaw gang performing their latest heist. If you are into werewolves, we recommend playing the sibling of this slot – The Wolf’s Bane, which has the same mechanics, RTP and payouts.
