We were initially somewhat nonplussed when confronted with NetEnt’s new Wild Wild West game – now available at Royal Panda Casino
Initially we thought it might be a branded title using clips and characters from the Steampunk Western movie with Will Smith – but it turned out to be nothing of the sort and thankfully far superior for it.
If you liked Jack Hammer you'll love this slot
First off, NetEnt’s team have put some serious effort into the visuals here. It’s got a very engaging yet highly stylised feel to it with a Manga-influenced look that’s been used to great effect. The feel is that of a rough-edged comic book, using a desert background and a metallic, stream train-style reelface that shows off the symbols to great effect.
The main characters are a bunch of hard-boiled outlaws looking to rob a train, with period-style card icons accompanying them on the reels. Even the Spin button is a bullet chamber, just in case you had any doubts about the kind of people you’re dealing with.
If you’ve played either of the Jack Hammer slots from NetEnt you’ll have an idea of the style and quality of imagery to expect –there’s a similar old school comic book vibe to it that works just as well in this game as it did in both of the Hammer slots, and the gameplay is every bit as well thought-through.
Three safe bonus symbols on Reels 1, 3 and 5 simultaneously will trigger the Pick and Click feature. Click on 1 of the bonus symbols and you’ll reveal a cash prize varying between 5 and 50 times your stake.
Get up to 30 free spins
The main attraction here, however, is the free spins feature, launched when you land 3 or more 7 scatter symbols anywhere on the reels in the base game, resulting in you getting up to 30 free spins.
More importantly, this feature benefits from 4 Wild features that can appear anywhere on the reels. These include a Regular Wild, Expanding Wilds, Double Multiplier Wilds and Spreading Wilds. Before the free spins commence, the Wild Selector Wheel starts to spin; when you stop the wheel, a Wild feature is randomly chosen and activated.
An overlay wild symbol randomly appears on Reels 1 through 3 on every single free spin – you need to look for the double Multiplier Wild which will double your win total. The Spreading Wild will spread across the 3 reels on the row it appears, leading to a guaranteed win.
Wait for the Expanding Wild - it's the best feature
Best of all, in our experience, is the Expanding Wild which will cover the whole reel it appears on. If you’re lucky to get a wild on each of the 3 reels, you will benefit from 3 fully wild reels! Finally, 3 or more scatters during the feature will retrigger the feature giving you a potential 60 free spins in total.
With densely-plotted gameplay and stunning visuals you’ll never get bored to trying to pull off this particular heist. Factor in a brilliant Johnny Cash-style soundtrack and it makes for unbeatable entertainment. Join up at Royal Panda
