With a name like Golden Ticket you'd expect to be playing a slot based on Charlie and The Chocolate Factory. However there's no sign of Willy Wonka in this Play'N Go game. Instead you're welcomed to all the fun of the fair where there are olden day clowns, strongmen and ringmasters waiting to reap rewards upon you.
Golden Ticket is different to most slots. It's played on a 5x5 grid. The reels don't spin, instead blocks featuring various icons fall in to view. Match three or more symbols and you not only do you get a win, but the icons explode - and drop down. You also collect a Golden Ticket which acts as a wild. Clear the screen and you're collecting a prize whilst a bonus round awaits if the word bonus appears under the cleared boxes.
Duck Shoot Style Bonus Round
Golden Ticket can be played for 20p, £1, £2, £10 and £40 a spin. An autoplay option allows you to sit back and relax whilst the game plays. Visually the game looks great and encapsulates the Victorian age fairs with it's sights and sounds. The presence of a clown rocking back and forth during play may not be to everyone's taste but unlike Pennywise he's harmless!
As mentioned, if you do manage to clear a column and reveal the word 'bonus' then you're into a special feature of the game. This is a duck shoot style game where you win cash based on the symbols that appear on screen. There's no interaction involved which is disappointing and it's a tad fast and confusing. We'd have liked this part of the slot to be better!
Just The Ticket
Golden Ticket however did hold our interest despite the disappointing bonus round. When the boxes start to clear and you get multiple wins then the cash prize starts to mount up - for example we won over £15 on a 20p spin. Whilst we didn't clear all the boxes we did manage to activate the bonus round.
This Play'N Go game is available at Spin And Win and Magical Vegas. If you fancy a change from the usual spinning slots then this is just the ticket.
