Get Your Golden Ticket To Win

The Golden Ticket is a surprisingly good slot, with unusual features we haven’t seen anywhere else. It has an RTP of 96.73%, solid base game wins and a great bonus game, you’ll get all the fun of the fair playing at this Steam Punk circus.

Gameplay

This 19th century, Steam Punk circus themed game has some rare and unusual qualities that, from what we’ve seen, are not even properly explained in the instructions. So we’re going to have a go at laying it out straight for you here. Firstly, the atmosphere is spot on, with authentic designs and sounds from a 19th century fairground and the ringmaster loudly calling the shots. There are 5 reels and 5 lines and the paylines are very simply 3 or more symbols in a row either horizontally or vertically. There are 9 base symbols, including a ring master, a strong man and a clown. The Golden Ticket Wild gives the highest payouts, of up to 1,000 coins for 5, unless you clear the grid to win 2,000 coins.

But then it starts getting weird:  whenever you get 3 or more symbols in a row, the winning symbols on the outside of the combination disappear, while the inner symbols are replaced with sticky Golden Ticket Wilds. The remaining symbols drop down to create new winning combinations over and over until no more winning combinations are found. This really pumps up the payouts with the additional wins on the replacement combinations!

Not only that, but as the winning symbols disappear and the rest of the symbols drop down, there are empty spaces left at the top of the reels that randomly reveal letters hidden behind the symbols. Altogether, these letters vertically spell out the word ‘Bonus.’ When the winning combinations reveal at least one entire column of bonus letters, that’s when the bonus game is triggered.

Special Features

In the bonus game, you get a multiplier by how many ‘bonus’ columns were revealed that triggered the feature. The bonus game awards a random number of ‘free rounds’ up to 20 and is set in a kind of decaying, 5×5 shooting gallery. It also has a completely different range of 10 symbols and pays out (up to a maximum of 350 coins per round) when you ‘shoot’ between 5 – 10 symbols anywhere on the screen.

Verdict

This slot is definitely an intriguing and original curiosity. And with an RTP of 96.73%, it’s definitely worth a peek.
