Wild Rails Slot Review
If you have ever wandered what it would be like to travel in a train similar to that in the Murder in the Orient Express, then you should definitely check out the latest release coming from Play’n Go’s creative kitchen. Wild Rails is a five-reel, four-row video slot that will take you on an interesting train ride, where you will be accompanied by several odd-looking characters. Playable from £0.30 per spin, the 2019 release benefits from 30 paylines and the symbols that populate the reels are driven on train carriages. The Play’n Go title offers Wild Trains, a random feature that can be triggered both in the base game and the Free Spins feature.
If you look closely, there will be plenty of things that will remind you of the Murder in the Orient Express. The reels are set on the rails and operated by train carriages, while the characters are very similar to those who appear in the famous Agatha Christie book. Two mysterious Ladies, one carrying a hand fan, other drinking champagne, appear on the reels, as well as two gentlemen – a Military Man and a Gentleman with a monocle. The Carriage is the Wild that substitutes for all regular symbols and the Golden Train is the Scatter that triggers the Free Spins feature.
As for the rules of the game, they are pretty standard, even though there are lots of cool innovations included. The reels are set on train tracks and symbols are driven on carriages. The 2019 release features five reels, four rows and benefits from 30 fixed paylines, which pay left to right, beginning from the far left reel. Three of a kind is the minimum for landing payouts. Betting is fixed at 30 coins per spin but the coin value can be altered and gamers can wager as low as £0.30 and as high as £100 per single spin.
The Wild Trains feature is randomly triggered during the base game and every now and then gamers will get Wild Trains on the rows/train tracks. Each of the rows can be covered with up to 4 Wilds at once, which can secure you some decent payouts. The Free Spins feature is triggered when punters land 3 or more Scatters on the reels. Spinners can get 5, 7 or 10 freebies, depending on the number of Scatters landed. During the feature one guaranteed Wild Train will appear on one of the rows. Also, you can land more Scatter Trains and they will act as Wilds as well. Collect extra Scatters so as to get extra freebies and getting more Wild Trains.
The biggest possible payout gamers can expect in a single spin is set at 5,000 times the bet. The Wild is the symbol that pays the most, offering 30 times the bet for five of a kind. As for the regular symbols, the Lady with a hand fan is the most generous character on the train, offering 20 times the bet for the maximum combination. Wild Rails’ RTP is 96.53%.
Wild Rails on Mobile
Even though the reels are set in a not so distant past and that the theme is extremely retro, the 2019 release is pretty up to date when it comes to modern technologies. The good people of Play’n Go developed a video slot that can be played across all devices and you can enjoy Wild Rails on your mobile phones, tablets and other compatible handheld gadgets, as well as on desktops.
