The slot uses surprisingly few symbols as it has just train, red 7’s and bars though they can appear in many variations. I think the creators made a mistake here to not implement some kind of other style, type figures. The way it is now, the game has a little bit monotone, homogeneous look and playing the game for long period it easily can become boring. Maybe these remarks seem to be fault-finding attitude but for me they really influence my gaming experience.
Just to speaking about the game segment too, this is a traditional simple game without many rules and features. The slot can be played with €0.01-€1 coin denomination varying the bets between 1-5 coin range. The advantage of playing with 5 coins is having a chance for the top prize of the game which is 5000 coins if 3 Train symbols appear on the so called 5th payline that starts from the left bottom position to the right upper spot. Collecting such winning combination on the remained 4 lines means the reward can be just 1000-2500 coins. Train has an additional function, namely substitutes any symbol but doesn’t add anything to the won amount or pay in itself, so there’s only one situation when it can help if the other 2 symbols on the line are same or different Bars.
Runaway Train wouldn’t be a bad game if it hadn’t the mentioned visual challenges but other than that based on my experience with it, its payout is OK and I even had t times when I succeeded to get Jackpot, true, they weren’t the best paying kind. Otherwise, I’ve never seen here so far that long losing streaks that can discourage players and sometimes I could achieve results that I could satisfy with.
Finally, I believe if someone doesn’t care or take too much attention to the aesthetics and just wants to focus on the rewards and cash result, this game can be a good choice for that purpose.
