Game in Action
Theme Park: Tickets of Fortune looks and feels as if it was made for children. The card symbols come in the shape of balloon animals. The higher paying symbols all represent parts of fairground rides such as carousel horses, planes, rockets, dodgems or duck boats. There is stacked rollercoaster wild with accompanying cheers whenever it comes rushing past on the reels.
It’s all fun and games, in other words. The soundtrack includes all kinds of jingles and sound effects you’d expect to hear on a fairground. So you’re going to have to be prepared to let your inner child reign free in this one. Of course, the slot still comes with the customary Net Entertainment quality, so there’s little to complain about here. It’s just that the theme may really not be for everyone.
If you like your slots to have plenty of bonus features, however, this is definitely the right one for you. Theme Park comes with tons of mini games and even the base game has extra features to look out for.
There’s the already mentioned stacked wild, for instance, which shows up on reels 2, 3 and 4. More often than not it will rush past you in this fast paced slot. But when it lands on the reels it can bring substantial winnings.
Then there’s the claw, which lands on reel 5. Just as you would expect it from a claw machine, it will come from above and pluck a plush toy for you, which contains coin wins.
When the bonus symbol lands on reel 5, you will spin a bonus wheel, which awards you either a coin prize or launches one of the six mini games that you can also play in the theme park bonus.
The theme park bonus is the main feature of the slot and you’ll need three scatters to trigger it. First of all you’ll spin a wheel of fortune a few times to determine how many tickets you will get. Some tickets also award additional wheel spins. On average you might get 5 to 12 tickets, but we’ve got 19 before, which means you can try most mini games. And here they are:
Can Tower – You’ve got balls, you’ve got three can towers. Aim the balls for the towers and hope to topple as many cans as possible. Win cash prizes for every successful hit.
Duck Shoot – Shoot the ducks five times and grab an increased multiplier from 1x to 4x with every shot that hits the mark, or the duck in this case. Behind each of them is a coin prize, of course.
Fishing – You’ve got a certain number of picks here. Hook on your chosen fish and reveal the prize.
Punch Bag – Punch the bag and see how strong you are. It will determine your coin prize.
Skee Ball – Throw the balls into the holes with the highest multipliers. Not an easy feat, but worthwhile as the highest multiplier is 20x your bet.
Sledge Hammer – Another chance to show your strength. Hit hard and get the hammer to earn you decent cash prizes.
You choose which game you want to play and pay with the tickets you collected initially. Some games are more expensive than others, but then some have a better potential for high prizes that others as well.
Other Slot Machines You Might Enjoy
You really have to be a fan of mini games, if you want to like Theme Park: Tickets of Fortune. There are no free spins, of course, which will disappoint everyone who likes their free spins. The base game is fast paced and brings enough action to keep you going even when you don’t get to trigger the theme park feature.
The slot is colourful and entertaining and you’ll be curious about the fairground attractions the first few times you try them out. But after a while they may feel repetitive. After all, you only spend so much time on a fairground or in a theme park and the fun can cost quite a bit of money with relatively small winnings to show for it.
