Wild Rails Slot Review – Play’n Go

Play’n Go has been lacking this year in their slot releases, we have had nothing that’s blown us away in 2019 yet. I previously reviewed ‘Rise Of Merlin,’ which plays so similar to ‘Magic Mirror’ by Merkur. Instead of being inspired by other providers most popular games, we need something new and unique. Play’n Go has announced a new game titled ‘Wild Rails,’ which is set to release July 11th. Wild rails base game This slot has unique visuals; in the background, you can see beautiful mountains and scenery. The artwork resembles an art deco theme, but either way I’m glad Play’n Go have chosen something different for this release. Reels and rows are different rail tracks, where symbols will move along the tracks for each spin. Which is an excellent mechanic change from the standard reel setup. This slot looks good, but can it pay?

The slot setup is 5 reels by 4 rows; this includes 30 set pay lines. This slot is high medium variance due to the max win being capped at 5,000x and the set RTP of 96.53%. The max win of 5,000x is so repetitive in Play’n go releases currently, and I feel they could increase some on more volatile games. You can get from £0.30-£90.

These symbols have good detail in the font and have a train carriage at the bottom of each for movement for spins. There are also 4 premium symbols, 4 different posh looking characters represent these and all have different coloured backgrounds and a train carriage surrounding each symbol. There is also a train cargo wild and golden train scatter.

Wild Rails Slot Review Features

In the base game, you will benefit from a feature named ‘Wild Trains‘; this can activate on any spin in the base game. Up to 4 wild symbols can stop on reels and can bring along additional wilds.

Central to this game is the free spins feature; this is activated when 3 or more golden train scatters appear during a spin. 3 Scatters Award = 5 Free Spins, 4 Scatters Award = 7 Free Spins, And 5 Scatters Award = 10 Free Spins. The scatter symbol now served as a wild and scatter during these spins. This feature starts you off with a guaranteed wild on each spin, for every 3 scatters collected you will be awarded another guaranteed wild per spin and additional free spin. When 4 wilds have been collected you are awarded 3 additional free spins and are awarded 3 for every third scatter received.


Overall, this slot has surprised me by Play’n Go. The game shows they can create new ideas and brainstorm. The slot has excellent visuals and artwork produced. There is an excellent volatility due to the max win of 5,000x, but it seems repetitive in the providers more recent games. Be sure to try this slot for yourself 11th July. And don’t worry, we’ll be sure to feature this game on our stream as well.
