Yeehaw! It was in February 2017 that NetEnt brought a new comic book type of game to the NetEnt Casinos. I’m most probably not the only one who recognises a Jack Hammer style in the game, although I’m not sure if the Wild Wild West: The Great Train Heist™ slot is able to beat the success of the Jack Hammer™ slots, I am sure players who like western movies, or a dynamic slot feature packed with slot features, will appreciate this NetEnt slot. While the graphics have a lot in common with the Jack Hammer™ slots, it’s the Wild Wild West: The Great Train Heist™ slot and the older title Dead or Alive™ (DoA) slot that share the same theme. The DoA™ slot was released back in 2009, but the game got a complete HTML5 makeover in 2016 that lead to the relaunch of the game. The theme remained the same, though, in which you’ll enter the Wild Wild West as soon as you open the video slot.
What is the Wild Wild West?
Also known as the Old West, the Wild West was an enervating period in the American his-tory and a popular theme in movies, series, and video slots. Over the years, modern cul-ture has turned this valuable part of the American history into an unreal legend including the quick-draw cowboys shooting a six gun out of a hand with another six gun! What about the bank-robbing outlaws ruling the West like the Dalton Gang, for example, or Butch Cassidy and Black Bart, all famous for their daring robberies. The truth is, though, that research resulted in the evidence of a humble eight true bank heists across 15 states in 40 years. That’s quite different from the stories told in western series en films, but what about the estimated $340 million in buried treasure in Texas alone hidden by outlaws? Besides, Wild West movies make you believe that the banks might as well have left their big white dollar-signed bags out on the porch, right?
Well, the facts don’t agree, as towns back in the Wild West were pretty small and consisted of the sheriff’s office, a saloon, general store, and a bank, all clustered together for conven-ience. The sheriff’s office was never far from the bank, which sounds rather logic to me anyway in that time, and a big heist was, in fact, pulled within earshot of the (sometimes pictured as silly and fat) sheriff.
Old West buildings were built close together which results in the bank being flanked by other buildings. A reinforced back wall had to keep anyone from entering the bank via the backdoor and if a bandit, whistling, left the front door with the loot, the sheriff would be happy to have some small talk with the dude. So, no, robberies like the most famous robberies pulled by Butch Cassidy and the Sun-dance Kid didn’t occur as frequent as we want to believe. These famous robberies are true, though, but made it to the history books for a reason. Trains, on the other hand, seemed to be easier targets as they were more isolated, easier to get into, and easier to escape from. Looks like you, and your partners in crime, picked the right target so are you ready for an adventure?
The Great Train Heist
The Wild Wild West: The Great Train Heist™ slot will take you to the Old West where you’ll be part of a typical Wild West adventure. One in which you’ll become an outlaw in-cluding your own six shooter, the greatest handgun ever made. One big win and you’ll be surrounded by this typical western gun! At the start, your face won’t show on a DoA want-ed poster yet, but be careful or you might end up in trouble! It’s time to dust your boots and colt revolver as the action is about to arrive! You’re on your way to the Wild West where men are real men, riding their horses straight into the action as if tomorrow doesn’t exist! The spurs on your boots will betray your arrival, but the Wild West isn’t a place for cowards anyway! Do you have what it takes to become a bandit?
With a minimum bet of 0.10 and a maximum bet of 100.00, the Wild Wild West: The Great Train Heist™ slot is a pretty standard NetEnt slot. If you’re one of the many players that play online casino games for fun, I’m sure you’ll appreciate the lowest bet of 0.10 al-lowing you to play with all 10 bet lines available. If a daredevil, you can fix yourself any type of bet in between 0.10 and 100.00 thanks to the 10 bet levels and 7 different coin val-ues.
Wild Wild West: The Great Train Heist™ slot features
Time to roll up your sleeves and enjoy the ride, but you must be careful as you’re aiming for those golden safes. However, if you don’t pay attention, you might end up with your heart being stolen by this comicbook-themed NetEnt slot that’s packed with some serious action! Action is, after all, what a true bandit is looking for and with a Wild and Pick and Click feature available in the main game, and 4 different Wild features in Free Spins, there’s a chance you end up lost in a desert of slot features. So fire the six shooter, crack your whip, and giddy up partna’ as the fun is about to begin!
The Click and Pick feature definitely rules during the main game, and with a little bit of patience (you’re in the Wild Wild West remember) you’ll get that loot you, and your part-ners in crime, are after. This attractive slot feature will be activated when 3 Bonus symbols appear on the 1, 3 and 5. That’s the moment that three golden safes will become available to click on so just randomly pick one of them to see what the loot will be worth. To get to the real action, you’ll need three or more Scatters awarding 10, 20 or 30 free spins. You’ll be awarded one of the four Wild features as well including the Regular Wild, Expanding Wild, X2 Multiplier Wild or the Spreading Wild. Which of the above Wild feature is going to rule the reels during the Free Spins features will depend on the Wild Selector Wheel. Just before your Free Spins will be activated, the Wild Selector Wheel starts spinning and it’s up to you to stop the wheel where after a Wild feature is randomly selected and activated. No matter if it’s going to be the Regular Wild, Expanding Wild, X2 Multiplier Wild or the Spreading Wild that will be in the spotlights, an Overlay Wild symbol will randomly ap-pear on the reels 1 to 3 and it’s possible that a few appear at the same time.
