How to Play

The title of this online slot tells you seemingly everything you need to know about the game. Developed by Red Tiger Gaming, The Greatest Train Robbery slot is a Wild West-themed slot game at, and one which focuses on a heist. Unsurprisingly, a host of bandits and iconic Western imagery pop up on the reels of this game, but it is the slot’s special features and gameplay which provide a shock. There are quite a few of them for players to prosper by in what initially appears to be a simplistic UK online slots release.   

The Greatest Train Robbery slot knocks together 40 pay lines over its 5 reels. As is often the case in most new online slots, players are not going to be able to tinker and toy with those lines. They are fixed into place. A two-for-one deal is offered on pay lines, though, with a minimum bet setting players back as little as 20p a turn. At the opposite end of the wagering scale, capped maximum stakes are set to £40 a turn. Prizes can be worth up to 600x a total stake in this game, which is no petite prize. The slot is a medium variance release and should be suitable for newbies and seasoned pros alike.

Special Features

Fire symbols (very poorly drawn, it must be said) appear as wild symbols in The Greatest Train Robbery slot. These icons can replace and substitute all others, except for the bonus icon, which appears, naturally in a heist slot, as a safe. 

Players will notice that the bandits have a role to play in The Greatest Train Robbery slot. Unlike other Wild West slots, the bandits are here to assist not hinder you. They randomly run by the reels during spins and potentially chuck out one of three possible features at the drop of a hat. One such feature is the re-spin bonus, and it is guaranteed to deliver a win of some kind. The second is a Cloning Wilds bonus, and it will see dynamite set off an explosion. The resulting fire turns symbols into wilds. Lastly, there is a Mystery Symbol bonus, which can see the smoke from a fire turn any icons caught in it transform into mystery icons. They will all be matching symbols.

Free Spins & Bonus Features

Safe icons appear as bonus symbols in The Greatest Train Robbery slot. You’re going to need three of those to appear on the first, third and fifth reels to trigger a free spin round. Each safe opens to display several free spins, which are added together to give you your tally. During the free spin bonus, players can expect the bandits to appear randomly on the reels far more frequently. They will dish out the same three bonuses that they do in the base game. 

Fun Facts

Anyone playing The Greatest Train Robbery slot will undoubtedly be impressed by the scale of this great heist. What are some of the greatest jewel heists of all time?

Stories of criminal geniuses carrying out Lex Luthor level heists to acquire valuable treasures have captivated us for decades. Here is a look at some modern jewellery heist that will leave your jaw on the floor.

Graff Diamonds - $66 Million

On August 6, 2009, the Pink Panther group posed as musicians to have professional makeup and prosthetics done for a fake music video. With their clever disguises, the men, dressed in snazzy suits, went to Graff Diamonds in London. The thieves made off with over 50 necklaces, bracelets, rings, and watches.

Harry Winston - $110 Million

Just before Christmas in 2008, Paris also got hit by the infamous Pink Panthers. The men, dressed as well-to-do ladies, gained entry into the luxurious Harry Winston jewellery store. Once inside, they shed their disguises, pulled out guns, and began looting the jeweller. What was unsettling about the plot is their knowledge of the secret safes and staff members' first names.

The Carlton Hotel - $140 Million

July of 2013 brought the worst incidence of theft the Carlton Hotel had ever experienced. A single man disguised with nothing more than a bandana and cap penetrated the exhibition room on the ground floor. The thief effortlessly got past the unarmed guard and removed a sack holding over 70 jewels and placed them in a suitcase. He then walked away, $140 million richer.

The Green Vault Museum - $1.1 Billion

Europe suffered a significant loss when thieves infiltrated a historic royal palace turned museum called the Dresden Green Vault. At dawn on November 25, 2019, the group removed part of a ground floor window grill and smashed their way inside. The belief is that they set a fire in a junction box near the area to disable the building's alarms before the theft. The bandits snatched the biggest treasure collection in Europe.


The Greatest Train Robbery slot has a significant number of features wrapped up in its gameplay. This is surprising, as the slot initially looks like a generic Wild West and heist-themed game. The volatility, wagering range and features all make this new Red Tiger slot a class act for any slot player to try their hand at.
