You don't want to be late to this station, because something is about to set off that you'll really want to make sure you're on board for. Money Train 2 is a sequel to a very capable first instalment, and in case you haven't yet seen the possible top reward, it stands at 50,000x your stake. Not only is there potential for landing a big cash prize, but there's also potential to take in wins with multiplier values attached thanks to the respins feature that draws comparisons with the Link & Win feature from Microgaming.
If you didn't play the first Money Train slot, then not to worry, because Money Train 2 looks and feels very similar. Obviously, there are a few upgrades to the graphics and bonus features, while the paying potential is also improved. Just so we're aligned, this theme isn't based on the movie but rather takes us to the West, where bandits are knocking over the railroad to build up their loot. There's also an element of steam punk to it all.
Money Train 2 is volatile, so be prepared for moments where wins seem elusive. However, the good news is that when wins do land, they do so with bigger values than medium volatility online slots.
As with almost all slots online, Money Train 2 has regular symbols and special symbols. The typical start with playing card suits diamonds, hearts, spades and clubs as lower values, and then a selection of characters from the theme as the higher value icons – the man with red glasses as the highest paying of the lot.
There are loads of special symbols. However, the only two that land in the base game are the wild and the scatter. The wild plays a joker role to mimic all icons, while the scatter is the regular bonus icon.
There’s a moderate respins feature that gets triggered by landing only two bonus symbols on the same spin. Those two scatters will turn to reveal a multiplier each, and then respins will happen until a win is achieved. Each spin that passes with no win adds a +1 multiplier to both scatters, eventually awarded once a win finally lands.
Landing 3 scatters on the same spin will award you with three respins as the Money Cart bonus, and a different reel set sees only bonus symbols with cash values land, or blank spaces. If a bonus icon lands, the spins go back to 3, while all bonus icons land with cash values attached, all paid to you when the feature ends. Loads of additional special symbols can land on the reels to boost multipliers that already exist to be paid.
Landing the Money Cart bonus is what you want to be doing as often as possible, as this is where the most cash can come from with the lowest amount of risk. Money Train 2 might not be the most innovative slot, but with the assistance of bonuses and up to a max target of 50,000x your stake as a potential jackpot, it's always worth seeing if it will work wonders for you.
