Slot games that are based on the western theme are pretty dense in the industry, although some developers are able to produce them in better format and design than others. This offering from Netent, entitled Wild Wild West: The Great Train Heist, provides gamers with a very nicely design and entertaining product on the whole to play. This one will take you on the adventure of your life as you take on the role of a train robber in cowboy form. You’ll be welcomed to the game by a great little video package and your game play will be accompanied by some classic country and western style music, although you do have the option of muting this if you have the preference to do so. So, get your Stetson on, make sure you’ve got your gun and ammunition, and be prepared to take over the train and its passengers.
Do It Cowboy Style!
This game is presented to players on a five reel and three row layout, so it offers up a familiar interface to spin the reels of. Netent have also included a total of 10 different pay lines as well, which doesn’t seem like many when compared to most games of today’s standards, but don’t let that be any dissuasion to you playing it. It has some wonderful graphics on display, starting with the standard playing card symbols of spades, hearts, diamonds and clubs. These are joined by four icons of the train robbers – the blonde-haired, almost boy-like cowboy, the butch, knife-wielding man, the older, eye patch-wearing man and the beautiful but deadly female.
You’re able to customise the game to suit your own preferences, which is done in the first instance by altering around the wager that you place per spin. This starts with the coin value, which offers up a range of between €0.01 and €1.00, while the game’s bet level is offered between one and 10. This allows you to place a maximum overall wager of €100 per spin, and this level can be reached instantly by making use of the ‘Max Bet’ button.
Guns at the Ready!
You can’t go on a great train heist without utilising the best tools, otherwise you could be caught and imprisoned by the sheriff. Don’t worry though, because Netent have made sure to include some great special features into this one in order to assist you with achieving your goal. The first of these specialities is the regular wild symbol, and whenever this shows up it will stand in for all other icons in order to form a winning combination, with the exceptions to this rule being the scatter icons and the bonus symbols. Should five wilds appear on the screen, you’ll receive a maximum pay out of 500 coins!
The scatter symbol of this game is represented by the number 7. You’ll need to spin three or more of these into view in order to trigger its special feature, which is the freespins round. Should three scatters come in to view, you’ll be the recipient of 10 freespins, while four scatters will give you a total of 20 freespins. Meanwhile, five scatter icons ensure that you will receive a total of 30 freespins of the reels.
Each of the game’s freespin rounds will include a randomly selected special feature. The first of these is the regular wild feature, while the second exists in the form of the expanding wild, which covers the entire column that it shows up on. There’s also the inclusions of a times two multiplier wild, while the final special feature is the spreading wild.
Finally, there’s the ‘Click and Pick‘ feature of Wild Wild West, and this is activated when three bonus symbols – represented by the golden safe box – appear on the reels in the main game. These icons will only appear on reels one, three and five. The only thing that you’re required to do here is click on one of the safes to reveal a coin win, and this provides a reward of between times five and times 50 your wager placed.
We highly recommend this game, as it’s one of the more entertaining offerings in its theme genre and you can find it in most new slot sites. The many special features make it very compelling on the whole, while Netent’s usual incorporation of high quality graphics are still present within.
