Wild Rails will impress you right at the initial stages. It plays up to its name, “Wild Rails,” because the reels are sideways, and the symbols look like train cars making their way into the game. You will feel the anticipation as the symbols quickly come through the mountain and stop. The graphics are really amazing. The game takes you on a wild west trip. The theme is sort of wild west in the 1930’s. The characters are interesting and make slight movement on the reels.
It’s the little details that count, making it more interesting and worthwhile to play. The backdrop in Wild Rails is a gorge with mountains on each side. The “train” comes through one mountainside and out of the other. Ingenious design really.
There are the symbols you know and love such as the A, K, Q, J, and 10. Furthermore, there are some characters in the game that are dressed to impress. This train is clearly first class.
There is a well-dressed gentleman with monocles (that old school seeing eye glass with just one lens). He offers you up the best chances for some bigger wins. If he lands on the 3rd, 4th, or 5th reel, you can get from x1.5 to x20 more than your stake.
The train carriage is the symbol that represents the wild in Wild Rails. When it makes its way onto the reels in the right way, it will replace all the symbols. If you get 3, 4, or 5, it will get you x2, x8, or x30 of a win than your original stake.
The Wild Trains in Wild Rails are random. When there are four of them on the reels, they can take over all the rows. This will make five wilds on each train.
The Golden Train scatter will trigger your free spins in the game. You have to get at least three of them. When you do, you can get 5, 7, or 10 spins for free. When you’re in the middle of the spins, there will be a Wild Train that shows up. That’s a guarantee, for every free spin. It’s a scatter that acts like a wild.
Scatters will continue to be picked up and this will increase how many of the Wild Trains you get within the free spin feature. When you’ve collected three scatters, this gets you a Wild Train. Upon reaching two or three Wild Trains, you’ll be getting a free spin. If you’re lucky enough to reach four Wild Trains, the game gives you another three spins for free. There is a chance of getting 15 spins for free, which is pretty much unheard of in other games like it.
The unique way that the reels come onto the playing area is cool. They have made it look like a fast train coming through the mountains. It really creates the scene and makes you feel like you’re in the 1930’s. The characters are all fantastic too. As far as big winning chances, it is pretty average.
While the game is fun to play, it doesn’t offer as big of an opportunity to win as other games might. You can only get x900 your stake on any given spin (both normal or free). To win this, you’d have to fill all the reels with the wild. It’s not going to win you an immense amount of money.
