Getting on the London Underground for the first time can be an experience if you don’t hail from the famous city. It’s also interesting as you glide over the rails to think of all the history that went on above ground at all the various stops. Down the Rails is a new slot here at our casino site that takes you on a ride with some historical figures such as Henry VIII and Churchill, all the while making five different bonus features available to you all iGamers. To add to the excitement, there’s also a maximum prize that all players have the potential to land – up to 5,000x your stake.
At first, you might be unsure of the theme Pragmatic Play, the casino games developer, was attempting to go with in Down the Rails. It's a bit all over the show, but it is basically just London through the ages and some iconic figures that have been instrumental through the different eras. When it comes to the actual slot, there's a 5x3 grid that spins to reveal different symbols, and on this grid, there are 20 paylines in which winning combinations can form.
One crucial factor to note is that the reels are high in volatility, meaning there will be no apparent trend in the results. It's best with these online slot games to play a sensible strategy. The RTP as per Pragmatic Play, sits at 95.58%, which is only theoretical and should not be expected.
The symbols consist of J, Q, K and A as the lower paying icons, and as the higher paying symbols, we have a selection of 5 historical figures, with King Henry VIII being the most valuable.
The bonus symbol is a train, while there’s also a wild icon that substitutes all regular symbols with a joker effect. Two extra symbols include the tunnel and the Shifting Stack wild.
Landing 3 bonus symbols on the same spin will trigger bonus play. You will be awarded 1 of 5 bonus features at random. Some are more valuable than others, and therefore you can gamble to upgrade to a more favourable feature. Losing the gamble will still see you awarded a 2x – 24x multiplier on your wager. The five bonus features are a mix between free spins features and respins, with some features having more spins and bigger multipliers.
There are random features, too, such as the Wild Strike, which adds a mass of wilds to the grid, as well as Tunnel Vision which places mystery symbols to turn them all into the same symbol. There are five random features that can occur during the base game.
There’s quite a bit more detail to Down the Rails that we recommend you explore for real potential rewards. There's no shortage of entertainment, and we're sure most players will enjoy the take on Winston and others. Plus, a wealth of bonus features brings plenty of added value.
