NetEnt’s comic-book themed slot called Wild Wild West: The Great Train Heist gives you the chance to become a villain and join up the gang who is planning to rob the main train that carries payroll shipments through the wilderness of the old Wild West.
Even though this group of ferocious bandits does not know the combination for the safe, they have prepared loads of dynamite, and your job will be to collect the money before the sheriff arrives with his posse. So saddle up your horse, put your cowboy outfit on and keep one hand on the gun barrel, because the shootout can begin at any moment.
Net Entertainment, the pioneers of online gambling industry, was established back in 1996 in Sweden.

Their video slots house state-of-the art graphics and soundtrack and offer loads of action thanks to a number of rewarding additional features and bonus games.
How To Play It
The reels are set on a prairie with trains passing by in the distance. The good people of NetEnt did an amazing job concerning the visuals and the soundtrack and made this comic-book slot really come to life with great graphics and western-movie background tune that really heats up the gameplay.
The member of your gang are the high-value symbols. This quartet of desperadoes is leaded by the red-haired Girl, others member being the one-eyed Gunslinger, the Man with a knife, and a Boy that reminds us of Billy the Kid. Playing cards are used for low-value symbols. Train 7 is the Scatter, while the Safe presents a Bonus symbol. There are also four different types of Wilds.
The 2016 release is a five-reel slot with 10 fixed paylines. Before you start hitting the spin button presented as a gun barrel, set the game level that goes from 1 to 10, and set the coin denomination, going from $0.01 to $1. The minimum wager in this NetEnt product is $0.10, while the maximum bet is $100. Winnings start once you land at least three matching symbols on a payline starting from the leftmost reel.
At least three train 7 Scatters are needed for stopping the train and triggering free spins, and you will be awarded with 10 freebies. Four Scatters carry 20 free spins, while five of them will get you 30 freebies. Once you have activated the feature, the robbery will commence, with the guns shooting, dynamite exploding and the frightened passengers holding their hands up in the air.
But first you get to spin the wheel that offers four different types of Wilds, which will land on the reels during freebies. There is the Regular Wild, like in the base game, the Expanding Wild that will cover the entire reel once landed, the Multiplier Wild that doubles your winnings when part of the winning combination and the Spreading Wild that turns one adjacent or diagonal symbol into Wild as well.
In addition, an Overlay Wild will appear on reels 1-3 with the same function as the active Wild feature, making even more opportunities for big wins which are celebrated by shooting guns in the air.
Pick and Click feature is activated once you land three Safe Bonus symbols on reels 1, 3 and 5. You get to pick one of the Bonus symbols and you will be awarded with a win between 5x-50x the triggering bet.
The NetEnt title offers a maximum payout of 50,000 coins, which is achievable during Free Spins that offer all sorts of Wilds, which can help you form incredible winning combinations.
As for the base game, the Girl is the symbol that pays the most, 500 coins for five of a kind, to be exact. When it comes to Pick and Click feature, the maximum prize is $5,000, provided you placed the maximum bet of $100.
Spaghetti westerns are coming back in style thanks to the 2016 release. NetEnt created a comic-book video slot that houses some pretty awesome graphics and soundtrack.
We were a bit disappointed with just 10 paylines, which makes landing winning combinations somewhat difficult, but that is compensated by the highly rewarding Free Spins feature that offers lucrative payouts once you succeed in boarding the train and opening that money vault.
