Money Train 2
This is the sequel to game developer Relax Gaming’s huge success slot Money Train that was released in 2019.
The sequel was released the following year and they have made Money Train 2 very similar to the original, but with a nicer and more modern look. The changes that have been done are in the bonus game and now include a bit more of everything.
There are only two features in the slot, but one of them can be greatly beneficial to the players. The maximum win in Money Train 2 is no less than 50.000x the stake.
In our review, you can read all about where you can play Money Train 2, how to play it and how to reach the exciting bonus game.
How to play Money Train 2
The board is placed on a money train in a western village at sunrise. It’s a very pleasant setting for the eyes and Relax Gaming has done a great job with the graphics.
The board in Money Train 2 has 5 reels, 4 rows, and 40 pay lines and you win by matching at least 3 symbols in a pay line from the left.
4 futuristic western characters are the highest valued, and spades, hearts, clubs, and diamonds are the low-valued ones.
To help players matching the symbols there is a wild that shows as a strange skeleton with horns. The wild substitute for all symbols except for the bonus symbol.
This is the only feature in Money Train 2 apart from the big feature that is the Bonus game.
It’s a feature that comes with a guaranteed win and to get it you need two bonus symbols anywhere on the board.
The bonus symbols each have a multiplier on them that is added together and shown at the top right corner before the re-spin starts. The winnings from the respin will be multiplied with that number, but the number can grow. You will get re-spins until you win and for every losing round, the multiplier will increase with +1.
You will normally get a multiplier of x5-x15 which means that it can be a nice boost to your balance if you match a win with one of the higher valued symbols.
Money Cart Bonus Game
Even though you can get some good winnings from the regular game and especially the re-spin feature, the bonus game is what Money Train 2 is all about.
A lot is going on in the bonus game and there are loads of different features. Here is where the maximum win of 50.000x the stake can be won in Money Train 2.
To reach the bonus game you need 3 or more bonus symbols anywhere on the board. When that is done, you can sit back, relax and hope for the best.
In the bonus game, the board is empty, waiting to fill up. You get 3 spins or falls since the symbols now fall from the top. Some will stay on the board and some will just fall through. If no symbol sticks on the board after 3 falls, the bonus game is over, but every time one or more sticks on the board you get 3 new falls.
What can land on the board is bonus symbols with a multiplier on them. The normal bonus symbol has a multiplier from 1x-10x and a golden symbol that has a multiplier of 20x-200x the stake.
All these multipliers will be added and when the bonus game is over you collect the total amount.
When a reel is filled with symbols a new reel will open. You can open up to two extra reels on the board.
If you manage to fill the whole board with symbols the bonus game will end, but you will receive a healthy reward of 500x the stake.
There are several features to help to increase the multipliers except for the bonus symbols.
Features in the bonus game
It’s the special symbols that can lead to the big wins in the bonus game. There are loads of them, they are all good but some better than others. They can land randomly on the board in the same way as the bonus symbols.
Below you can see them all and what qualities they have:
- Payer: Comes with a random multiplier and will add that number to all other symbols on the board
- Collector: Comes with a multiplier and will collect all other multipliers on the board to their own value
- Collector/Payer: Combines the two above and starts with the Payer
- Sniper: Comes with a multiplier and then double the value of 3-8 symbols on the board
- Necromancer: Comes with a multiplier and brings 2-7 already used feature symbols back to life
- Reset plus: Comes with a multiplier and adds one extra spin from 3 to 4.
- Persistent Payer: Comes with a multiplier and will add that number to all other symbols on the board on that spin and all other spins that will come
- Persistent Sniper: Comes with a multiplier and will double 3-8 symbols on the board on that spin and all other spins that will come
- Persistent Collector: Comes with a multiplier and collects the value of all other symbols on the board to its own on that spin and all other spins that will come
Buy Money Train 2 Bonus Game
In Money Train 2 you don’t have to wait for three bonus symbols on the board that lead to the bonus game. You can take a shortcut by buying the bonus.
The button to buy the bonus is to the left of the board and the cost is 100x the stake you play with.
Most of the time this will be a losing deal, but it can very profitable. A Swedish player used the lowest stake which is €0.10 to buy the bonus shortly after the slot was released. The cost was €10, and he probably wished he had a higher stake. He ended up getting several of the feature symbols and won the game’s maximum win of 50.000x the stake. Since he used the lowest stake, he won €5.000.
Is Money Train 2 better than the original?
It’s not too often that a sequel can live up to the expectation of a successful slot. In this case, it does. We would say that Money Train 2 is better than the original in many ways.
It looks better, there are more features in the bonus game and the maximum win is more than twice as large.
In the original, you can only get or buy the bonus game, but Money Train 2 has the extra respin feature.
If you haven’t played either of the slots, we would recommend that you go directly to the sequel.
What’s special about Money Train 2?
In a time where several new slots are released weekly, it is getting more and more challenging for game developers to come up with something unique, but it’s very fun when they do.
There isn’t any slot like Money Train 2 on the market. Of course, there is the original, but the new feature on this slot makes it unique.
It’s the bonus game that is special. It’s very exciting when you start to receive the special symbols and the multiplier increases rapidly.
Money Train 2 summary
It’s a good thing that it’s possible to buy the bonus game because it’s not too easy to get but it’s very fun to play. Since it’s difficult to receive 3 bonus symbols on the board, Relax Gaming has done a good job with rewarding also when you land only 2 bonus symbols. The re-spin feature can be beneficial and is a great new feature for Money Train 2.
It’s a high volatility slot which means that the rewards can be big, but you don’t win as frequently as the low or medium volatility slots.
This is a slot for the players that are looking to win big, and not for the players that want to win often and want the playing account money to last long.
Even if you are not in the category of players that are looking for the big jackpot, we would recommend trying Money Train 2 at least once. The respin feature can give a big win which can lead to a possibility to buy the bonus game.
Good luck and play responsibly!
