Down the Rails Online Slot Review

What are Henry VII, Churchill, Shakespeare, Sir Isaac Newton, and Florence Nightingale all doing down in a tube station at midnight? Nope, this isn't the start of some joke; it's a question any reasonable fox might ask when they open the Down the Rails slot by Pragmatic Play. This slot is themed around British culture and achievements, with the reels featuring the above 5 Great Brits set in the Tube as a homage to this incredible engineering feat.

Down the Rails Slot Paytable and Layout

The low-paying symbols on the 5x3 grid are card ranks from J to A. Of course, the 5 Great Brit characters are the premium symbols in this game, giving maximum prizes of between 10 x and 25 x the stake for 5-of-a-kind wins.  

Landing five-of-a-kind of the newspaper Wild will also win a payout of 25 x the bet. The newspaper Wild also stands in for all regular symbols but not the Bonus Symbol. 

The Bonus Symbol can also land on any reel, and three or more will trigger one of five great Bonus rounds, which I'll tell you about in a minute, me foxy friends, but first..

How to Play the Down the Rails Online Slot

Players select their bet level by pressing the plus or minus buttons beside the spin button. First, set the coin value, which can be anywhere from 0.01 to 0.50. Then they decide how many coins to bet per line, from one to ten. This will multiply the base bet, which is then multiplied by 20, the number of paylines in the game. This gives an actual betting range of 0.20 to 100.00. 

Wins are formed by landing three or more matching symbols on adjacent reels, starting from the leftmost reel. Full details of the paytable and the special features can be found by clicking the information button at the bottom left of the screen.

Down the Rails Free Spins and Bonus Features

Feature-lovin’ foxes are going to go wild over this game. Apart from the 5 Bonus Rounds, there are also five great features that kick in at random during the base game: 

  • Tunnel Vision - adds mystery symbols which all turn into a randomly chosen pay symbol.
  • The Big Smoke - adds 3x3 paying or bonus symbols to reels 1 to 4.
  • Wild Strike - adds random Wilds to the reels.
  • Shifting Stack - adds shifting stacked Wilds that cover entire reels, with a multiplier of x2 or x3 attached, to the grid.
  • Bonus Blitz - randomly triggers 1 of the 5 Bonus Rounds. 

Landing 3+ Scatters anywhere on the grid will trigger 1 of the 5 Bonus Rounds. The actual Bonus Round is chosen at random, and if players want to try for a higher one, they can gamble what’s on offer. If they lose the gamble, they receive a consolation prize of 4 to 24 x the stake and are returned to the base game.  

Pentonville gives five free spins, with every win awarding respins. For these, the winning symbols stick in place, and the respins continue as long as the cluster is added to.  

The Kings Cross bonus round also starts with five spins. Positions in the centre of the grid will be randomly marked with an X on every spin. If a Wild lands on one of these positions, all the other marked ones also turn wild. 

The Buckingham Palace bonus round awards 8 free spins. Fully stacked wilds are added randomly to the reels. And at the end of every spin, all the premium symbols will transform into the most valuable Great Brit on the reels at the time.   

The Canary Wharf feature also awards eight free spins. Here the character symbols all come with cash values between 1 x and 50 x the stake. But players need to land a Cash Register Collect symbol to reveal the values and scoop up the prizes. 

The End of the Line feature starts with three respins on an empty grid. Every character cash symbol that lands resets the total to 3 and sticks on the grid. The cash values are between 1x and 2,500x the stake, and there are also special modifier symbols active:

  • Extra Life - Collect 3 of these, and the total respins will reset to 3 if it hits zero.
  • Prize Boost - Boosts the cash values of the symbols with every three collected.
  • Expand - adds an extra row per 3 collected, up to 5 rows.
  • Multiplier -increases the multiplier for every three collected. 

At the end of the round, the cash values on the reels are added together, and the multiplier the player achieved during the round is applied. The round can end when a player runs out of respins, hits the maximum win, or covers the entire grid in cash symbols.
