Down the Rails Slot (Pragmatic Play)

Down the Rails Slot Pragmatic PlayDown the Rails is the latest from Pragmatic Play. The slot appears to have a weird mix that is partially inspired by the underground/metro theme, and some major personalities from way back in the history of Great Britain.

Some of these personalities appear on the slot’s reels, but for the most part, the slot offers a modern experience.

As an avid real money gamer, I was excited to tackle some history and here is my experience playing Down the Rails for real money:

Game Set-Up

5x3 reels are what you will be working with on Down the Rails. There are up to 20 active pay lines, and a couple of great features as well.

These features include Free spins bonus, Bonus Game, Colossal Symbols, Hold and Win, Multiplier Wilds, Mystery Symbols, Random Wilds, Stacked Wilds, Respins, and Switching Symbols among others.

Betting and Prizes

One of the best parts about this slot is that real money gamers will enjoy up to three different RTP values (96.51%, 95.58% RTP, and 94.50%).

You may start by checking what your online casino is offering especially if you plan to play the slot for real money.

The slot allows wagers of as low as $0.20 per spin, while the highest that you will be allowed to spend on each spin is $100.

The top pay can hit 5,000xs the stake, but you will also have to deal with very high volatility.

Down the Rails Slot Features

Among the most obvious features is the Newspaper Wilds that appear on the slot’s reels. Acting as substitutes, these will be helpful as you form winning combinations.

Also, the wilds can be able to create their own winning combos that pay up to 25x per combo (this is the same as what is offered by the top symbol).

A few random features are also present among them the Tunnel Vision (mystery symbols), Shifting Stack (shifting wilds), Bonus Blitz (bonus game), Wild Strike (extra wilds), as well as The Big Smoke (3x3 symbols are added to the 1st to the 4th reels).

With the bonus game, you get an opportunity to trigger different versions of free spins features. Some of these are Kings Cross, Canary Wharf, Buckingham Palace, and the End of the Line (which serves as the Hold & Respin feature).

Theme & Design

Pragmatic Play is always very creative when it comes to slot themes, and for Down the Rails, you get London’s Underground as the major source of inspiration.

However, besides trains and stations, the slot has some focus on the country’s big personalities.

Royals serve as low-pay icons, and there are also better-paying ones in the images of Newton, Shakespeare, Florence Nightingale, Churchill, and Henry the 8th. Feature symbols are represented by the Train Bonus symbols, money symbols, and Newspaper Wilds.


I had a very interesting experience with Down the Rails, and I particularly loved the special features that Pragmatic Play has applied to the slot.

Down the Rails is an excellent game that I can recommend to all levels of players, provided you can handle its vicious volatility.
