Emmerdale - Road To The Woolpack Scratchcard
Emmerdale Bingo followed Coronation Street onto the roster over at Gala Bingo in late 2015. The arrival of the bingo room also sparked a few more game additions including a new scratchcard called Emmerdale - Road To The Woolpack. We decided to take a look and see whether it was worthy of a Soap Award.
Emmerdale - Road To The Woolpack is a straightforward scratchcard game from CR Games. The aim is to reveal the nine squares and match three symbols. Each symbol has a different prize with the maximum win x1000 your bet. The symbols consist of Emmerdale characters including Zak Dingle and icons you'd associate with the area - such as a sheep dog.
Game play is basic. You can choose to scratch the squares using your mouse or you can be ultra lazy and just click reveal all to see if you've won. Tickets cost £1 when you load the game in, but if you select the arrow on the left of the screen then you're able to reduce the wager to 50p or increase it to £2.
As mentioned the most you can win is x1000 your wager, but other prizes range from x2 to x500. There's also a free play prize which we quite like as winning your stake back on other cards seems a bit boring (and you always end up spending it anyway). Emmerdale - Road To The Woolpack also includes a bonus round where you have to guide your car back to the pub whilst picking up bonuses.
Without the bonus round this would be just another instant game. The Emmerdale element is good fun, but to be honest we didn't recognise any of the characters apart from Zak, but then we're not avid watchers of the show! We enjoyed playing the game but it won't be winning a Soap Award from us. If you're a fan of the soap and enjoy instants then we think you'll enjoy this game for a few rounds.
