Wild Wild West
Wild Wild West – The Great Train Heist is a NetEnt slot that’s loosely based on The Great Train Robbery. It features a quartet of intimidating outlaws, including an old cowboy with an eye-patch, a beefy thug wielding a dagger, a blonde lad with a bloody cut across his face, and a young Mexican woman who likes to tip her ten-gallon hat with the end of her pistol.
The game uses five reels and ten fixed paylines, and the top win is worth an impressive 50,000 coins.
When it comes to special features, there’s action all the way thanks to wild symbols that can replace other symbols and award as much as fifty times your stake. You can also ransack cash rewards with the four playing card suits.
The Free Spins Bonus is a definite crowd-pleaser as it not only grants you as many as thirty free games and the potential to win more once the bonus is underway, but it also includes another three wild symbols. One of the four wilds is randomly chosen to appear on the screen while you use your free spins, and they can expand to fill whole reels, turn adjacent symbols wild, and apply multipliers to the prizes that
they help you to win.
Why we love it
With its catchy Western-themed whistling music and animations of steam trains flying along a remote track in the middle of the desert, Wild Wild West – The Great Train Heist makes you feel as though you’re there alongside the three criminals as they wait in the undergrowth ready for the perfect opportunity to carry out the heist.
As well as the adrenaline-filled atmosphere that the sound effects and animations help to create, the special features such as Free Spins and Pick and Click seem relatively easy to trigger. So, if you’ve got at least 10p at the ready, why not give it a try?

REGULAR WILD SYMBOL
As there are three more wilds with special powers to discover in the Free Spins Bonus, the standard wild is referred to as the Regular Wild in the game’s rules. It not only rewards you with generous prizes when it forms three, four, and five-of-a-kind all-wild winning combos, but it can also bring you extra cash rewards by substituting for any symbol except Bonus symbols and scatters.
FREE SPINS BONUS
The “7” symbol that forms the front end of the steam train is the scatter symbol, and when it appears three, four or five times on the same spin, it gives you ten, twenty or thirty free games respectively. You’re also awarded more free games whenever three or more scatter symbols land on the reels during the bonus game.
Each time that you trigger the Free Spins Bonus, you’re randomly awarded one of four exciting wild features which allow special wild symbols to appear across the first, second, and third reel on every spin. You might get Regular Wilds, Spreading Wilds, 2x Multiplier Wilds or Expanding Wilds.
The Expanding Wild expands to fill the whole reel if it can help to create a winning combination. The Multiplier Wild doubles the value of any wins that it contributes towards, and the Spreading Wild turns one adjacent symbol wild.
PICK AND CLICK FEATURE
The golden safe is the Bonus symbol in Wild Wild West – The Great Train Heist, and if it drops onto Reels 1, 3, and 5 on the same spin in the main game (i.e. not during the Free Spins Feature), it unlocks the Pick and Click Feature.
All you need to do is select one of the three safes to find out what your prize is. N.B., it’ll be worth a minimum of five times your bet and a maximum of fifty times your bet.
