Gold Train Slot Machine
While seeing a train themed slot machine is not something that would surprise me, getting one which has a classic 3 reel layout does make things more interesting. Gold Train has been designed by Pragmatic Play, a developer that has created other interesting classic slots in the past, with higher than average RTP’s just like this one gets.
For Gold Train’s 3 reels, there are 3 active lines present. You can go after a top prize of $2,500 when you play the game and rely on regular combinations, but the features and its progressive jackpots could bring you even more. The slot’s wild symbols and scatters are accompanied by a bonus feature.
Betting and Prizes
3 active lines are placed on the 3 reels of Gold Train each round, the player being required to use them all. You can cover these lines with as many as 10 coins, sporting denominations of $0.01 to $0.50. The full range of a bet in Gold Train is between $0.03 and $15.
There is no knowing how much you can get from the slot’s progressive bonus feature, but we do know how big the slot’s regular jackpot can get. It can offer up to 5,000 coins, whose value will not go past $2,500. The RTP looks great, being set to an impressive 97.16%.
Gold Train Slot Features
Looking at the features that are introduced with Gold Train, I’d say that a lot of attention from the player will go towards the Wild symbol, which is the one that’s showing you the locomotive of the Gold Train. Get two wild symbols on a line, and the reward will be at 50 coins. Get three to cover the full line, and you can win 5,000 coins at most. Naturally, wild symbols are more often than not going to be part of other combinations, where the rewards will be smaller. Scatters or upgrade symbols are not replaceable with wilds.
The Silver Ticket is the scatter that you can land on up to 9 positions at the same time. With 3 or more you will have access to the Progressive Bonus Feature. This feature grants the player a number of carriages which will each deliver a cash prize. The cash prize value is picked at random, while the number of carriages will be at a minimum of 10. Additional carriages can be added to the total by landing Golden Tickets while you’re playing the paid spins. Each Golden Ticket that you collect will add between 4 and 10 carriages to the total that will be used during the next bonus feature that you trigger. You don’t have a limit to how many carriages you can accumulate this way. These Golden Tickets can also be found in the carriages that you win in the bonus feature, and once again you get additional carriages from them.
Theme & Design
The theme is related to the Wild West type of steam train, the kind that you no longer see in use these days. The steam locomotive is visible in the wild symbol, while other related images include the silver and gold tickets, the bells, flags and the conductor’s cap. There are even three stacked Bar logos which use the train’s track in their design. The only unrelated symbol is the one showing the triple red 7.
Gold Train offers an unusual theme and set of features for a classic slot, but that’s part of its strengths, along with that very high theoretical RTP.
