Loose Caboose Slots

Loose-Caboose-slotRTG’s Loose Caboose is a train themed game that puts a bit of an emphasis on the train ride and especially on the caboose, the section of the train where the valuables were stored. It appears that the wagon in question becomes loose somehow, while the rest of the train moves forward. The action takes place somewhere in the Wild West, probably during the 19th century, or the early part of the 20th. The game will not be enjoyed only by train fans though, as its charming graphics should be pleasant for most people that give it a chance.

5 reels are used by the game, with the number of lines going up to 25 when they’re all selected. Part of the feature list there are symbols with scatter or wild abilities, plus you can get access to the free games round. There is a prize that will give the player up to 5,000 coins, which in this case would mean up to $25,000. A random progressive prize is also offered as a bonus.

Features of Loose Caboose

The two main symbols that are used as features are quite basic, but luckily the Cash Train round saves the day and makes things a bit more exciting.

The redheaded Engineer, with his cap, white shirt and blue suspenders is a charming addition to the list of symbols. It’s the basic kind of wild that you can count on when it comes to substitutions for other symbols, but not on him giving you a bigger prize along the way (no multiplier). It will award the top jackpot, so at least there is one piece of good news that this symbol can give you.

The other symbol is the Caboose that the title mentions, a lost train wagon that is filled with cash bags and gold. It’s not connected to the train anymore in this picture, so it can appear anywhere on the reels as a scatter. Wherever the Caboose symbols are located, they pool up their resources and they give you a prize between 1x and 200x the wager, as long as there are 2 to 5 of them present.


Cash Train Feature

This extra feature is the most exciting part of the slot. It needs for three Caboose scatters to be present in the base game, in order for the feature to be activated. If that happens, you will notice that the Cash Train starts moving across the game’s top row. As it passes over the symbols, you will notice that it reveals free spins, bonus symbols or multipliers. If you’re lucky, the train will keep going and cross an extra one or two rows besides the first one.

Once the train leaves, you can start playing your free spins, with the multiplier that you’ve won. The feature can be re-triggered with an extra 5 free spins. As for the Bonus symbols that you might’ve won, these are used as extra wilds during the feature.


Betting options and jackpots

The presence of 25 lines in this game means for you that you have the option to use a maximum of 25 coins. Once that decision is made, what’s left is determining the coin’s denomination. The options here start at $0.01 and then go up to $5. The obvious result when you max out these options is a $125 wager per spin.

You can get up to $25,000 from Loose Caboose, a decent prize for any game, made even better by the presence of a progressive jackpot alongside it. You will find out if you’ve won the progressive once the round is over, as it is given at random at that point.

Design and symbols

The cartoon theme used in Loose Caboose will put you into the right disposition to play this charming game. Everything is handled beautifully in the graphics department and the characters found in it look like they belong in a real animation movie. The desert stretches of the Wild West are visible at the top, but the train makes the travel a lot more pleasant.
