NetEnt going all guns blazing

Wild Wild West: The Great Train Heist by Netent is currently one of the most-talked-about slots in the corridors of G2G Office.

NetEnt are one of the big giants amongst slots providers. Their portfolio of games reads like a ‘who’s who’ of top slots that you’ve either played a few times or have at least thought about playing such as Jimi Hendrix, Motorhead, Koi Princess, Secrets of Christmas and the brilliant Red Riding Hood.

Which was arguably my favourite slot from all those that were released in 2016.

They were also the architects of the infamous Dead or Alive; we’ll look at the significance of that a little later on.

The point is that when NetEnt tells me they’ve got something a little special in the pipeline, I sit up and take notice.

Luckily for us, they were kind enough to allow me15 minutes to try the Wild West slot out. Here’s what I found about it.

Is the Wild West slot another Dead or Alive?

There’s been a recent fashion for all things ‘Westerns’ in recent times. Last year the re-make of the Magnificent 7 was one of the most high-profile and expensive film releases of the year while on our TV screens Westworld was a huge success with its web of intrigue and ruthless baddies.

At the G2G, the re-discovered interest in Westerns came in the shape of the already mentioned Dead or Alive a few years ago. Ask any experienced slot player what the most volatile casino slot is online and that’s the name that would probably pop up more than any other. It’s a high-risk game that can be highly rewarding and tough to crack in equal measure!

Wild Wild West is available on desktop of course, as well as on mobile. In a tribute to the theme of the slot, why not give it a go the next time you’re on a train?

Having played it for as long as NetEnt allowed me to, I can reveal it has two main features. The first is the golden train safes. Get three of those and you’ll get the chance to multiply your stake used on your last spin by between 5x and 50x its value. So choose carefully when invited to select one of the safes.

The other feature is the somewhat inevitable free spins. You can get 10, 20 or 30 of them depending on whether you get 3, 4 or 5 Number 7s (the train they’re robbing is the Number 7 train).

And not only can you get your cowboy hands on some pretty valuable loot but the free spins come with the unlimited potential to be re-triggered.

Will Netent’s Wild West: The Great Train Heist be as make-or-break as Dead or Alive? The initial signs are that no, it’s not quite the all-or-nothing slot its predecessor is because you secure more frequent wins though the potential for massive one-off wins out of the blue isn’t quite the same. It’s quite volatile but Dead or Alive gets to keep its crown.

What does the new slot look like?

It’s a 5×3 reel slot and the graphics are in the comic-strip style that’s become a firm favourite amongst slot players. Where have I seen it before? Most prominently in the Jack Hammer games, which by the way is one of my favourite slots ever. So not a bad game to model your design on.

The symbols feature a motley crew of train robbers. They are: a weather-beaten cowboy puffing on a cigarillo and holding a gun, a brute of an outlaw wielding a knife who has a moustache that reminds us of Asterix, a kid who looks like he skipped high school for the day to go rob a train and a seductive and beautiful female robber who looks like she likes danger more than she does hot baths and cute kittens. If this was a film, she’d probably be played by Salma Hayek.

I’ve talked about the Golden 7s and the golden safes already so just have to mention that there’s also a Wild to help you secure wins.

Each spin takes place to the sound of a gun chamber rolling and there’s some pretty dramatic music going on as the action unfolds. Then again, if a train heist isn’t pure drama, then what is?

When can I join the heist?

Put it in your diary that the Wild West: The Great Train Heist release date is February 23. Not sure about you but we’ve put a few errrr…meetings…in our schedule for that day so that we can errrr…

Look, who are we kidding? Yes, I’m taking most of the day off to give it a real go rather than just playing it for 15 minutes which is what we’ve done up now.

If NetEnt expects great things from this game then so do I!

I’ll soon have a more in-depth article discussing the game in much greater detail so watch this space.

Till then, have a look at what else is new on the G2G Free Slot section. I add new slots every week.
