Money Train 3 (Relax Gaming) slot analytics

Money Train 3

Video slots come with sequels like movies. The Money Train 3 slot machine from the Relax Gaming provider is just that. The first release of "Money Train" took place in the summer of 2019. The slot immediately attracted experienced players with its high volatility, which means a significant winning potential.

This analysis is being written at the end of September 2022, only two weeks after the release of the "third series". Editorial experts played 1000 rounds on the licensed demo version of Money Train 3. Information was collected on the frequency of bonus activation and the amount of payouts in free spins and the regular game. The Buy Bonus function was tested separately.

Expert review

Compared to the first two releases, the new slot turned out to be balanced. Experts did not understand why the developers indicated the level of volatility as High. The slot has two bonus features: a respin and a bonus game that takes place on a separate screen. For 1000 rounds, both of them were launched evenly. There wasn't much variation in bonus wins.

Table #1 shows the highlights of the test.

The bonus features have the following features:

  • Respin is more important than the bonus game. It accounts for about 30% of the gross winnings.
  • The bonus is actually free spins. But the spins take place on a different field and with their own symbols.
  • After activating the bonus, the player is offered a choice of 13 (!) types of free spins.

The last point, it would seem, is the player’s headache: what to choose. Experts have solved this important question. We will tell you which free spins are better later.

There are many payouts from x10 in the main game. There were 18 such rounds in 1000 rounds. Small ones at 0.5 bets - about ⅓ of the total. There is no serious variation in significant payouts. Their range is from x10 to x40, with even distribution.

Игровой процесс
Main gameplay

Respin is part of the main game. There were 16 of them in 1000 rounds. Respin payouts are smaller in size. This is due to the special mechanics of this feature - the almost complete pre-clearing of the playing field. The respins happen evenly.

So it's hard to count on payouts higher than x40 in the base game. But the prizes of the average size fall out steadily and at approximately the same intervals. When such payouts follow in 10-15 spins, there is a “splash” of +50... +80 bets.

In the bonus game, the situation is about the same. The payout range is relatively narrow: from x20 to x60. For 50 bonuses, this range was exited only 10 times, including seven in a big way.

Important. Only one type of free spins out of the available 13 was tested - number 1. As it turned out, all free spins are very similar.

Table 2 shows the details of the test. To understand the nature of the slot, the distance of 1000 rounds is divided into intervals of 100. Payouts on lines from x10 and all winnings in the respin and bonus are indicated.

Результат за 1000 раундов — +60 ставок

The Money Train 3 machine has a bonus purchase. Naturally, he fell out 4 times. 46 more purchases were made to evaluate the player's benefit.

Despite the presence of 13 types of free spins, no significant difference was found between them.

The slot has 12 unique special symbols: multipliers, "collectors" , "transformers", value boosters and several special symbols that combine any two of these functions.

There are 13 types of free spins. The developers meant that in some free spins a certain special symbol would appear more often. In practice, this is not noticeable at all. There is no difference between “regular” free spins #1 and the rest.

The statistics of the Buy Bonus feature are presented in table #3. The purchase price is 100 stakes.

Up to x203
From x20 up to x6040
From x60 to x1003
More than x1004 (x120, x149 , x201, x230)

Conclusion: buying a bonus is unprofitable. Perhaps the distance of 50 attempts is too short to find out the potential of the function. It is also possible that the expert could not find some highly profitable type of free spins.

Editor's opinion

Money Train 3 slot machine from Relax Gaming appeared in most of the Russian casinos within two weeks after the release. Most likely, it will be banned for wagering bonuses as it is highly volatile.

According to editorial experts, the slot is not such. Uniform payments of all types, with approximately the same amount, do not allow a significant drawdown of the deposit. Sufficient backroll - 500 bets.

Important. A test distance of 1000 spins may not be enough. In the same series, the opposite result is possible.

The main recommendation for players is to try to look for some particularly profitable type of free spins that our experts have not found. To do this, you will have to spend several hours in demo mode to buy a bonus 200 times.

Money Train 3 slot is undesirable to run on smartphones and with poor internet due to "heavy" graphics.
