The Greatest Train Robbery: Demo
The design here is simple but rather good. The reels are set up like a set of railway lines. There you’ll find Wild West style A to 10 symbols as well as sacks of gems, green jewels and piles of silver coins. The best symbol is the stack of gold bars. Land 5 of these and you’ll win 15 times your stake. There’s also a wild that replaces all other symbols bar the bonus. Land 5 of these in combination and you’ll pocket a 15 times stake reward.
On any spin, 1 of the 3 bandits can appear at random. They will lob sticks of dynamite onto the reels and trigger 1 of 3 Bandit features:
- Respin feature - 1or possibly 2 reels will respin to create a new winning combination.
- Cloning Wilds feature - the dynamite starts a fire which spreads across the reels. Each position engulfed by the flames turns wild. A new payout consideration is then made with the extra wilds in position.
- Mystery Symbol feature - smoke from the dynamite blast spreads across the reels. As it clears, the symbols covered by the smoke turn into a new matching symbol. You’re guaranteed to land a new winning combination here.
The Greatest Train Robbery also comes with a Free Spins feature - it’s triggered by landing 3 of the safe bonus symbol on the same spin. The safes will open to reveal the number of free spins awarded. Look out for the bandits who can appear at random feature (described above) in this round and add extra free spins to your total.
This is a simple take on the classic western-themed slot. The cartoon visuals are pretty basic and you’ll have seen similar features in plenty of other slots. The bandits and their extras some along regularly enough to keep the base game ticking over. The Free Spins feature is solid enough too.
There’s nothing very flashy about The Greatest Train Robbery. It’s a perfectly solid all-rounder though and certainly worth a look if you like Wild West adventure. Alternatively, you should play NetEnt’s Dead or Alive or NextGen Gaming’s The Wild 3 if you want to head to the Wild West.
