Have you ever dreamed of living in the time of westerns, fierce cowboys and notorious criminals? Now you can get a taste of that life in the newest video slot by NetEnt, Wild Wild West: The Great Train Heist.
The game is equipped with awesome comic-like illustrations and appropriate audio, but that wouldn’t be enough to put this game on our radar. Luckily, its features prove that this is release is more than worth players’ time.
Different kinds of Wilds, Bonus rounds and Free Spins are abundant in Wild Wild West to increase your chances and your level of fun.
What We Love
We definitely loved the old-timey feel that the game has as soon as you see the interface. Crooked criminals lurking in the desert and waiting for their next prey are our main characters and they are all drawn in the style of a comic. It’s easy to get into the game once you immerse yourself into the theme.
Moving on with countless special features that NetEnt creative team came up with. We can’t remember when was the last time we saw five different types of Wilds in one game, but that’s the case here.
Aside from the regular Wilds which we all know too well, the game features Expanding Wilds which expand to the entire reel, 2x Multiplier Wilds that double your reward if part of the winning combination and Spreading Wilds that turn one adjacent or diagonal symbol into a Wild. The fifth Wild is the Overlay that comes as a bonus Wild in Free Spins.
That brings us to our next favourite thing – Free Spins, of course. Depending on the number of Scatters you get, you will be awarded 10 to 30 Free Spins. But before they start, a Wild Selector Wheel will appear and start spinning. You need to stop it to determine which kind of Wild will keep you company throughout the Free Spins. Not bad.
And finally, we couldn’t move on without mentioning the Bonus symbols in the form of safes. Getting three of those will give you the opportunity to choose and click on one of them in order to get your money award. So, good luck there.
What We Do Not Like
We must say that there’s little that we don’t like in Wild Wild West.
The only thing NetEnt could have worked on more is the graphics, to create a more wholesome theme. The idea of cowboys in the Wild West has already been seen, so they could have worked harder on creating more familiar symbols or various animations.
Absolutely. Wild Wild West is one of those games that will appeal to almost all slot fans, even those that enjoy aesthetically appealing games and those that prefer simple and straightforward slots.
Being able to choose between low and high stakes will also be good news for different kinds of players and the RTP of 96.7% means your chances are pretty good.
