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 recognizes 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.
NetEnt released the DoA™ slot 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 American history and a popular theme in films, series, and video slots. Over the years, modern culture 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 in the western series en films, but what about the estimated $340 million in buried treasure in Texas alone hidden by outlaws? Besides, Wild West films make you believe that the banks might as well have left their big white dollar-signed bags out on the porch, right?
The true Wild West
Well, the facts don’t agree, as towns back in the Wild West were pretty small with the sheriff’s office, a saloon, general store, and a bank. They were all located in a cluster in the heart of the town for convenience.
The sheriff’s office was never far from the bank, which sounds rather logical to me anyway. In those times, a big heist took place within earshot of the (sometimes pictured as silly and fat) sheriff.
In the Old West, they located public buildings close together to flank the bank for more protection. A reinforced back wall had to keep anyone from entering the bank via the backdoor. 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 Sundance Kid didn’t occur as frequently 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, were easier targets thanks to their isolation. They were easier to enter and to escape from. Looks like you, and your partners in crime, picked the right target. Are you ready for an adventure?

The Click and Pick feature
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 partners 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.
Free Spins feature
To get to the real action, you’ll need three or more Scatters award 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 appear on the reels 1 to 3 and it’s possible that a few appear at the same time.
