The wombat says: Roll up, roll up and put your furry bums on a ringside seat for Play’n GO’s Golden Ticket slot. This is The Greatest Showman of slot games, with a circus vibe. Just don’t let the bearded ladies get anywhere near my furry face – or it’ll be like Velcro on Velcro…
If you like the shiny yellow stuff, you´ll love it (you could also play Ecuador Gold as well by the way, where there´s Aztecs, there´s gold).
Now, this game comes with a warning: If you don’t like clowns, look away ‘cause there’s a vintage-looking one welcoming you to the big top with creepy open arms, along with a smartly-dressed ringmaster and the strong man who’s sporting a rather revealing leotard.
Is that leopard print we spy on that buff bloke? Well, as Mrs Wombat always tells me: “If you’ve got it, flaunt it”.
Anyway, drumroll puh-lease because we’re here to talk about the game, not what I wear around the house at weekends…
Look and Feel
A Wurlitzer organ grinds away in the background, as you enter the greatest show on earth. As the red velvet curtain raises, you’ll see the reels are set in an old-fashioned fairground from the 1800s and you’ll hear a chattering crowd in the background. Well, this are the guys and gals behind games like Gemix so what did you expect?
Golden Ticket slot really looks the business – from the illustrated characters to the right of the reels to the game’s reel icons – they all perfectly conjure up the vintage circus vibes from years gone by! Well done Play N GO!
Golden Ticket slot has 5 reels and 5 rows – well, it’s more like a grid really. This is no 3 reel fruit machine like the Hit it Hard slot from ELK (mind you, that comes packed with a ton of features).
It also has a unique game mechanic: match 3x or more symbols either horizontally or vertically and you’ve got a win. The winning symbols will then collapse (with other icons dropping in from above) and the more columns you collapse, the better – as if you manage to get rid of the entire board, you could scoop as much as 200x your total wager.
Spins start at 20p and go up to a chunky £40 if you want to take your chances like a novice trapeze artist who’s got this stumpy-armed wombat for a partner).
Your symbols on the reels are all circus-themed, including; the strong man’s weights, a pair of juggling batons, the ringmaster’s hat and a Golden Ticket. You might also spot the three circus characters.
The Golden Ticket that gives the game its name is your Wild.
Free Spins and Bonuses
As the reels spin, you’ll see the letters of the word ‘bonus’ behind the reels on two random columns. Get rid of these columns during the cascade drops and you’ll set off the bonus.
Next, you’re in an old-fashioned shooting gallery, with lions, ducks and balloons. And of course, clowns. Always ruddy clowns. The aim of the game here is to hit 5 or more matching symbols and these can be anywhere on the grid. Bonus Round prizes can also be multiplied by up to 5 times their value. Whoop!
Shoot down 10 of the clown faces and not only will you have the bejesus scared out of yourself, but you’ll get a payout of whopping 35x times your stake. Sometimes it’s worth facing your fears, right, wombat fans?
Who needs a trip to the circus when you can get all the fun of the fair with Golden Ticket slot? We loved the lucrative bonus round and not just because it rewarded us for shooting down those pesky clowns. (FYI: no clowns were injured in the playing of this game.)
If you don’t see this wombat around town for a while, it’s because he’s run away to join the circus. This game is a cracker.
