The Greatest Train Robbery Slot Review – Red Tiger
Red Tiger Gaming is back with a new slot announcement; I recently reviewed their game titled ‘Phoneix Fire‘ which I rated 4/5 overall. I also recently reviewed ‘Five Star Power Reels,’ which I also rated 4/5 overall. Now Red Tiger has a new slot announced titled ‘The Greatest Train Robbery,’ this slot is set to be available on all sites after being exclusive on all GVC Owned casinos such as ‘Ladbrokes‘ since 2018.
This slot has a western theme and seems to be based on some old classic movies. The graphics are detailed and have some great cartoon artwork which I always admire from red tiger gaming. The slot background is set in a kind of train station where you can see a saloon and other building structures. There are small detailed animations like a tumbleweed and a bird flying over included too. I do like the reels are a top-down view of trains to blend with the western theme.
The setup is 5 reels by 4 rows; this includes 40 pay lines. This game is medium volatility with a max win of 2,000x and set RTP of 96%. It is disappointing to see such low volatility on so many Red Tiger releases; the community has such love for their more volatile publications such as ‘Dragons Fire.’ You can bet from £0.20 – £40.
The Greatest Train Robbery Slot Review Paytable & Symbols
This slot has 11 symbols in total; this includes 5 low paying symbols. These are represented by 10, J, Q, K, And A. These symbols have a basic font with a colour for each. There are also 4 premium symbols represented by a bag of green gems, a bigger green gem, silver coin stacks, and gold bars. There is also a flame wild, both this wild and the gold bars pay 60x for 5 across a pay line. The last symbol is the bonus scatter.
The Greatest Train Robbery Slot Review Features
So this slot has many features which can trigger randomly, these are triggered when one or more bandit characters appear and throw dynamite at the reel set, each thrown will trigger one feature. The features that can be triggered are;
- Respin – Can cause a winning respin on 1+ reels.
- Cloning Wilds – Can start a fire which spreads across all reels turning some symbols into wilds.
- Mystery Symbols – Smoke from dynamite can spread across reels covering 2+ symbols when the smoke clears all turn into the same symbol for a guaranteed win.
Central to this game is the free spins feature; this is activated when 3 bonus symbols land on any reels. This will also summon the bandits; each will reveal several free spins to add up to your total spins. During these spins, the bandits can activate each random feature and can award extra free spins.
This slot is very generic from Red Tiger Gaming; there are randomly triggered features which are essential and a free spins feature with all these randomly triggered features active. It is so overused in their slots now, and they overuse features in some of their slots which is disappointing. I want Red Tiger to come back with a hit slot that is unique and has volatility.
