Are the sequel better than the original? As this Money Train 2 slot shows, sometimes it just follows the exact same highs and lows.
The first Money Train slot was a western through and through, as you chased those big steam machines for big rewards. Well, the second heist is always going to be the bigger heist and Relax Gaming has certainly upped the stakes.
The Money Train 2 mobile slot has 5 reels and 4 rows of symbols with 40 paylines, but the minimum bet is a low 0.10 a spin, and the theme is more steam-punk than Wild West.
And that adds a little bit to the charm and warns you that this might be a deadly machine. If it doesn’t the fact that this has a 50,000x your bet max win might give you a subtle hint.
As soon as you see that top win, you’ll wonder where you’ll find it. Well, you’ll have to chase this train on many spins before you manage to board it.
The base game of this Money Train 2 slot is a little slow, mostly because the paytable isn’t quite powerful enough to really give you that spark of excitement. If you manage to get 5 of a kind wins with the highest-paid symbol on all 40 paylines you’ll only win 800x your bet.
And that’s not a scenario that is likely to happen often, what with having no stacked symbols. On the bright side, this has only 4 high paying character symbols and four low-paying suit card symbols. So not a glug of symbols jamming the reels of this Western slot game.
But none of it matters because all you are looking to trigger is the bonus feature.
You get 3 spins to catch symbols, and each of the symbols has a multiplier value that multiplies your bet – from 1x to 200x. It certainly has the potential for huge wins, but it’s the multitude of special symbols that makes this stand out from the first version.
You get symbols collecting all the values, adding values, multiplying values and just doing spin after spin after spin (There 9 special symbols in total which we write about in below).
It certainly adds a little bit of excitement, because that where you can win that huge 50,000x your bet max win thanks to all those multipliers. The problem is that the special symbols are rare, but getting 100x your bet is usually more what you can expect.
The high is really high here, but the lows will leave you trampled under a huge steam train making you wonder if you weren’t better off opening up a farmstead instead of robbing banks.

Wild: The skull is the wild symbol and substitutes for all symbols on the reels for any payline wins.
Respin: When two normal bonus symbols land anywhere on the reels, you get a respin with the bonus symbols staying on screen. The bonus symbols will each reveal a multiplier, and these will be added together and you'll get a re-spin until a win is made up. Every non-winning spin will increase the multiplier by +1 and the bonus symbols act like wild.
Money Cart Bonus Round: This bonus is triggered by landing 3 or more bonus symbols anywhere on the reels. You then get 3 spins to catch more symbols on the reels, each with their own special multipliers. Each time you catch a symbol the re-spins are set again at 3 spins. The game stops when you get no symbols in three spins in a row.
The symbols you'll find:
Buy Feature: For 100x your bet, you can buy the money train feature whenever you want. The RTP of the Money Train 2 slot increases to 98% if you buy the feature.
We wanted to give this Money Train 2 slot review more stars than the original simply because it had a bigger win of 50,000x your bet.
But in the end, we decided that we didn't have any more fun than we did with the original, with the base game a little slow and the bonus features a little frustrating.
That said for a low 0.10 bet, you get 40 paylines with a whole load of symbols and some huge wins in the bonus feature. So it's a good real money game that sits nicely next to the Hellcatraz slot.
Or you can play Money Train 2 at one of these mobile casinos:
