Game of the Week – Money Train

If you like classic westerns or are a fan of the old west, then you should check out Money Train. Money Train is one of Relax Gaming’s latest online video pokies featuring a classic western theme and multiple bonus features.

This game has a prize structure that’s a bit different than standard online pokies but still feature large prizes up to 20,000x your initial bet. The biggest selling point for this game is the Money Cart Bonus Round that gives you the chance to hit a massive big win.

Lower Paying Standard Symbols

Money Train is a western-themed online pokie with a fun spaghetti western soundtrack and a fun western background. The main game is an actual train car and features a 5-reel, 20 payline layout.

One thing that’s a bit different about this game is that the symbols do not pay as well as standard online pokies. For example, the lowest tier wins for each symbol pay less than your initial bet. The two lowest symbols do not generate a true win for you unless you hit five on a payline.

The amount you can win changes based on the amount you wager. Here is what you can expect to win from standard symbols.

  • Outlaw – Win from .8x to 20x your bet
  • Native American – Win from .6x to 10x your bet
  • Bandito – Win .5x to 9x your bet
  • Western Girl – Win .5x to 8x your bet
  • Spades – Win .2x to 5x your bet
  • Hearts – Win .2x to 4x your bet
  • Clubs – Win .2x to 3.5x your bet
  • Diamonds – Win .2x to 3x your bet

This game features two other primary symbols. The first is a pair of rifles that serves as the Wild for this game. It substitutes for all other paid symbols. The other symbol is a Safe that serves as the scatter. Hit three or more symbols and unlock a bonus game.

Unlocking Money Cart Bonus Round

This game features a Money Cart Bonus Round that is hit when you land the Bonus symbol on Reels 1, 3, and 5. When this bonus is triggered, there are five symbols that will help increase your win and retrigger free spins.

When you start the free spin bonus game, you will see multiple bonus symbols with multipliers listed in each. You will then receive three free spins and you’re looking to hit the following symbols during these spins:

Persistent Collector – This symbol has its own multiplier and then collects the multipliers form the other bonus symbols and then adds it to the total multiplier. For example, if it has a 5x multiplier and there are 10x worth of multipliers on the board, it will add 15x to the multiplier total.

Persistent Payer – This symbol will add a multiplier to the multipliers of existing symbols and for any future symbols that hit.

Payer – This symbol both has a multiplier and will add its multiplier to the currently visible symbols.

Collector – This has its own multiplier value and collects the multipliers of all other visible symbols and adds it to his own.

Widener – This symbol has a multiplier and will throw a stick of dynamite to reveal an additional reel.

Retriggerable Spins – If any symbol hits the board during a free spin, you are rewarded with three additional spins. The free spin round continues until you either run out of free spins or you fill every box with a symbol.

After you run out of free spins, your bet is multiplied by the total multiplier for your win.

Buy Feature

If you don’t want to wait to hit the Money Cart Bonus Round naturally, you can take advantage of the Buy Feature. You can choose the amount per credit you wish to bet, and then you will bet 80x that bet to get a free crack at the Money Cart Bonus Round.

This is a fun feature to try at lower stakes, but it can get quite expensive. We tried it a few times and never won back more than 70% of our bet. You have to hit a total multiplier over 80x in order to win this bet.

Play Money Train at Australian Online Casinos

Several Australian online casinos currently offer Money Train. Pokie Pop has recently added Money Train to their offerings. Any online casinos offering Relax Gaming will feature Money Train as a new game.

Money Train is a bit different from most online pokies and seems like it would be a lower-paying pokie game. However, it still features an RTP of 96.2%. This makes it a game worth checking out. With the Money Cart Bonus Round, you have a chance to win up to 20,000x your initial bet.
