So, will it be a luxurious journey for us reel travelers? Random Wild Trains and a free spins round with guaranteed random trains might give us just that as they can lead to wins of up to 5,000 times your stake.
Wild Rails is a video slot with five reels, four rows and 30 fixed pay lines. Wins are awarded for three to five matching symbols from left to right only. A ticket aka spin for your nostalgic train journey on desktop or mobile will cost 0.30 to 90 credits. The game is highly volatile (10/10) with an RTP of 96.53%. Please note that operators can choose a version with a lower RTP of 94.58%, make sure to check the help files to find out which version you will be playing.
A train viaduct with four stacked tracks serves as the game window where the symbols spin horizontally instead of the usual vertical direction. The card royals are strapped to the carriages underneath them while the main characters appear each on a typical carriage from the 19th century. Rock structures on each side and a sunny sky in the background complete the visuals.
All regular pay symbols can appear stacked, starting at the low end with the card royals from 10 to A. Hit five on a line to win 1x to 4x your stake. They are followed by four characters – 2 males in blue and green coats as well as two females in red and purple attire. Pays for a single five of a kind range from 5x to 20x your bet.
A 19th century train carriage with the word itself is the wild and top symbol, substituting for all pay symbols bar scatters and paying 30x your stake for a 5OAK. A similar carriage with a golden roof and depicting an train engine is the scatter. Three, four and five will pay 5x, 10x and 25x your total bet.
Your nostalgic reel journey is all about the Wild Trains. In the base game, they can appear randomly on any spin to turn up to five symbols on a row into wilds. One to four trains can leave the station at the same time with the potential to leave a full screen of wilds in their wake, which would pay 900 times your stake.
They will make a guaranteed appearance in the Ticket to Free Spins bonus feature. Hit three, four or five scatters anywhere on the reels in one spin to trigger 5, 7 and 10 free spins respectively. Scatters will act as extra wilds during the round and will be collected in a counter that will be the key to score mega wins.
The round will start with one guaranteed Wild Train appearing on one random row in every free spin. During the feature, one Wild Train will be added for every three wild scatters collected, up to a total of four Wild Trains, virtually guaranteeing some random wilds on every row for every free spin. Plus, you will get +1 free spin when two and three Wild Trains are activated and +3 free spins for the fourth Wild Train. Thereafter, every three collected scatters will award +3 free spins, no limits.
Summer is coming and Play’n GO decided to take us on a journey back in time when train travel was in its beginnings and those who could afford it would travel in a lavish style. The horizontal reels are a change from the norm and add more authenticity to the train theme. The game played rather well and things were kept flowing with the random trains as it took at times quite a few spins to trigger the bonus round.
