Update: 16th Aug 2022 - Since the time of writing, Going Underground by Pragmatic Play has changed its name to Down The Rails.

When people think of characters in online slots, they often think of big names such as Gonzo from Gonzo's Quest or characters from Ancient Egypt or Greece. No one ever thinks of former British icons throughout history as the basis for an online slot. Well, no one but Pragmatic Play.

The upcoming Going Underground takes players on the London Underground (also known as The Tube) with British icons such as Henry VIII, Winston Churchill, Florence Nightingale, William Shakespeare and Sir Issac Newton. If you are looking for a tongue-in-cheek slot filled with deceased legends throughout history, then look no further than Going Underground.

What to expect from Going Underground

When this slot opens up, players will notice that there are 5-reels with 20 paylines. In addition to this, there are a whole host of features starting with the random modifiers. Firstly, players can experience one of five modifiers on any base game spin including:

  • Tunnel Vision - mystery symbols are added and transformed into the same pay symbol.
  • The Big Smoke - a 3x3 sized symbol is added to the reels.
  • Wild Strike - wild symbols are added to the reels.
  • Shifting Stick - Shifting Stack wilds are put on the reels and all new wilds are moved fully into view to cover the reels. There are also multipliers up to x3 with these.
  • Bonus Blitz - the bonus feature is awarded.

Now, after these modifiers, there is a bonus feature that is triggered by landing 3 or more scatter symbols. This can either award the bonus feature. One of five bonus rounds is awarded, including Pentonville, Kings Cross, Buckingham Palace, Canary Wharf and End of the Line. The bonus games include:

  • Pentonville - 5 spins awarded with winning combinations parked as clusters with the rest of the symbols respinning.
  • Kings Cross - 5 spins awarded and the middle reels are marked and symbols in the marked spots are transformed to wilds.
  • Buckingham Palace - 8 spins awarded and fully stacked wilds added to the reels.
  • Canary Wharf - 8 spins awarded and character symbols can have values between 1x to 50x.
  • End of the Line - 3 respins with a hold and win style game with special symbols such as multipliers, extra lives and expanding the grid.

First impressions

There's no denying that this slot looks to be massive in terms of features and rivals Blueprint Gaming's The Goonies with all the amazing mechanics. Pragmatic Play delivers something different to players and is definitely needed.

Going Underground feels like a refreshing slot from Pragmatic Play and could even be a new classic online slot from the developer. The only thing that will make this slot better is snippets from The Jam's Going Underground song (or Amateur Transplant's mockery London Underground song). If this sounds like the slot for you, be sure to give this game a spin when it releases on the 25th of August 2022.
