We always assumed that the Wild West was a very unsafe and violent place and period in time, and NetEnt’s newest video slot Wild Wild West: The Great Train Heist only confirms this theory. It brings extraordinary graphics, blasting sound effects, engaging bonus features, as well as various nasty cowboys who are willing to go to dangerous lengths to secure a large bounty on this 5-reel and 10 fixed paylines slot.
Graphics & Theme
The graphics and animation in Wild Wild West are beyond remarkable and clearly stand out as one of the game’s major advantages. We get a good look at a variety of bad boys that are up to no good. The slot has an appropriate background, a desert with numerous cacti and a train driving by. The one feature we enjoyed an awful lot is the soundtrack, a mix of train noises and Western music that offers a delightful score for a game like this.
The big and colorful wild symbol will substitute for all other symbols, except the large ‘7’ Scatter symbol and the Safe bonus symbol.
Landing three Safe bonus symbols on Reels 1, 3, and 5 will activate the ‘Pick & Click’ bonus game, where players simply have to pick one of the safes and win an instant prize.
Free Spins are activated by landing three or more of scatter symbols on the reels, rewarding with the between 10 and 30 free spins, depending on the total number of scatters on the reels.
As soon as the free spins round starts, one of four different Wilds will be randomly chosen to accompany the free spins:
· Regular Wilds – act as a normal wild
· Expanding Wilds – expand and cover the entire reel in case of a winning combo
· x2 Multiplier Wilds – multiplies all Wild wins by two
· Spreading Wilds – turn one adjacent symbol into a wild
Additional free spins can be won by landing more scatter symbols during the bonus round.
Outstanding graphics, fantastic music and entertaining bonus features make Wild Wild West a total win in our books. Add to that the fact you get to be a bad guy for a change, and you this is clearly a slot worth trying.
