Retro Theme, Modern Style
As you might have guessed, the video slot from Play‘n GO features the circus theme from the good ol’ times. You have the colourful temporary tent erected on the outskirts, decorated with lights and is festooned to attract your attention. The star of the show – the well-oiled, moustachioed muscle man stands on one side flexing his big muscles.
Against this backdrop we have the reels; but there is something different about them.
The developers have applied their imagination to a familiar theme and made it a quirky, interesting one. Instead of just spinning around, the reels cascade. This effect alone gives the Golden Ticket slot a signature visual style. Since it is something that you don’t usually encounter, the cascading reels feel novel: something that has to be tried out.
The icons that appear on the reels include the strongman, the magician, and the laugh-inducing clown. You also have top hats, iron weights, and juggling skittles as the additional symbols. There is a colourful vibe to the visual layout reminiscent of the retro circus.
Since the reels cascade instead of spin, the gameplay has also been modified to accommodate this novel game. You need to match symbols in groups of three as the icons fall in fixed patterns. When the icons are matched, one of the symbols will turn into a Golden Ticket, which is the Wild. This will combine with the other symbols and boost your wins.
The slot presents two opportunities to enter the bonus game. The special icon appears on two random columns behind the reels. Clear one, and the bonus game is activated. Here symbols refresh every round and the aim is to land five in a row. This will award more rounds not exceeding 20.
