Special Features

This game features horizontal reels as trains whizz by carrying the symbols on them like carriages. You need to land 3 or more matching symbols on a payline in order to win here. The reel layout here is highly original and really makes this game stand out when compared to more traditional online slots.

The Wild symbol in the game is represented by a dark blue and gold carriage. This symbol like most Wilds, replaces all other symbols apart from the Scatter to help form winning combinations on the reels. It is also the most lucrative symbol in the game as if you happen to land 5 on an active payline then you will bag yourself a massive cash payout worth 30X your wager!

Wild Rails comes with a random bonus feature called Wild Trains which can trigger on any spin. Once activated, then up to 4 Wild Trains can take over each of the 4 rows and add up to 5 Wilds with each train. This can be highly lucrative as if you are lucky enough to fill the whole screen with Wilds then you will win a huge cash payout worth a whopping 900X your bet!

The star attraction of this game is the Free Spins feature. To trigger it, you will need to land 3 or more Scatter symbols. The Scatter symbol is denoted by an image of a Golden Train and the more of these symbols you land then the more Free Spins you will receive. For example, 3, 4, or 5 Scatters will get you 5, 7, or 10 Free Spins respectively. Interestingly, you are guaranteed at least 1 Wild Train on every Free Spin during the feature. The Scatter symbol will also act as an additional Wild during Free Spins and for every 3 Scatters you collect then you will be awarded an extra Wild Train along with another Free Spin. As soon as you have collected 4 Wild Trains then you will get your hands on 3 more Free Spins with no limits as to how many more Free Spins you can claim after that.

Theme, Graphics and Sound

Visually speaking, this game is a sheer joy to look and more importantly play as the action takes place on a set of rails between two large mountains as trains whizz by horizontally rather than vertically like the majority of online slots. Symbols that appear on the reels are stylish and full of detail and consist of a bunch of well-dressed gentlemen and women as well as classic A – 10 playing card icons. The animations are absolutely outstanding as trains speed by dropping symbols on the reels all the while emitting a small puff of black smoke as they fly by. It is particularly pleasing when you land a win on the reels as symbols flash and are surrounded by a puff of white smoke to smartly indicate the winning payline combination.

The music is upbeat with a rather whimsical soundtrack playing in the background. It works really well with the Locomotive theme of the game.

Win lines, Payouts and Jackpots

The game has 30 paylines, a generous RTP of 96.53%, and a maximum payout worth a whopping 5,000X your bet.

Our Verdict on Wild Rails

This game comes from Play’n GO and is an unforgettable and wild train journey through some mountains! Like most Play’n GO slots, it is visually stunning to look at and is extremely fun to play due to symbols appearing horizontally rather than vertically. It’s definitely not your typical online slot which is a very good thing in this case.

We should also mention that the top prize for this game is an enormous 5,000X your bet! For variance, it is quite High so make sure to bring plenty of bankroll with you before climbing on board one of the carriages here!
