Where to play?
NetEnt take you on a journey to the old American Frontier as you assume the role of train robbers in Wild Wild West: The Great Train Heist slot game released on 23rd February 2017. The game has comic book themed graphics that suit the game perfectly, and is visually very attractive and fun to play as you get immersed in the wild west. It’s just like reading one of those wild west comic books, except you also get to experience the thrill as you spin the reels, win big, and watch the beautiful graphics unfold before your eyes. The experience is really worth it, this is among the better slots on offer today.
The game has a 96.75% RTP (return to player), and the main game has a 21.60% hit frequency. The high RTP is very good news as this is a modern title with cool graphics, and they don’t usually come with such high RTP.
Graphics are well-made and have high production value. NetEnt opted for the wild west comic book style for this slot game and it works well with the theme. They could have done it so many different ways, but this is just right.
You will be waiting for those Free Spins which get triggered when you get three Scatter symbols, and you will be waiting for a while. In our experience, if you’re playing with €100 max bet, not even €5000 is enough to comfortably keep you playing for long enough. However, once you do get there you’re in for a treat. We won €8900 (see below) with 10 free spins which we re-triggered for a total of 20, with a Wild x2 bonus. We doubled our money.
You’ll get 10, 20 or 30 Free Spins depending on how many Scatters did you have – 3, 4 or 5. And before the game starts you’ll chosse your bonus. It can be a Regular Wild, Expanding Wild, x2 Multiplier Wild or Spreading Wild. A mandatory wild character appears on every spin, hence the big wins during this bonus game.
There is another bonus game called Pick and Click which gets triggered once you get three Bonus symbols (Golden Safe) in the main game. You pick one of the safes and click to reveal the coin prize.
The game definitely has high variance as you will be waiting for your big win for a while. Wild Wild West doesn’t pay often at all, but at least it doesn’t bore you with those small wins. You’ll be spending your time waiting for that bonus game, either Free Spins or Pick and Click.
There is no Stop button as such, but a click of the mouse will stop the reels. The game looks and feels natural, and all the features are the way you want them to be. There are only 10 paylines, and your bet can range from €0.10 to €100, with a minimum bet of €1.00 that covers all 10 paylines.
On the downside, this slot game won’t make you filthy rich as it isn’t a progressive jackpot – or any jackpot – kind of game. You can win several thousand here if you play well and are lucky, and you’ll have loads of fun doing it. But this game isn’t for everyone.
