When you become older, you would almost forget about the fun a fair, theme park or traveling carnival brought into your life as a child. So did I, at least, until NetEnt introduced the Theme Park: Tickets of Fortune™ slot with a preview video published on its official YouTube channel. I went back in time, back to a time I was living in a small village in the Netherlands with the highlight of the year being the traveling carnival. While I was looking forward to it for months, my parents started hoping that me and my brother weren’t so much interested anymore in the amusement rides, candy vendors and old-fashioned games such as the skee ball game, shooting (or actually missing) ducks, the carnival crane claw machines, bumper cars and more. Well, they had to wait a few years before we reach the point that we were way too cool to go to the traveling carnival, but until then I’m sure my parents were plagued by nightmares and a rapid decline in their bank balance.
Now I’m older and living in another country, I don’t visit the traveling carnival anymore, but I do go back in time when I play the Theme Park: Tickets of Fortune™ slot at one of the many NetEnt Casinos. Especially because this NetEnt slot brings back the old-fashioned games including my personal favourite: the skee ball game. This time, though, the skee ball game didn’t leave me with some innocent firecrackers, a tiny stuffed toy or the ugliest key-hanger I could find in between all the other trumpery. This time, a true cash prize was awarded when I successfully played the game during the Theme Park Bonus Games.
Besides my favourite carnival game, you’ll also get the chance to shoot some ducks, catch some colourful fish, go for the sledgehammer, hit the can towers or you can get rid of some aggression on the punchbag. No bumpy and sickening amusement rides in this original NetEnt slot although some of the symbols are inspired by Bumper cars, the Swan ride, and the ever adventurous carousel while even the carnival crane claw machine got a role to play in Theme Park: Tickets of Fortune™.
While the Theme Park: Tickets of Fortune™ slot brings a lot of excitement to the reels, the betting options are pretty standard for a NetEnt slot. There are seven different coin values (0.01, 0.02, 0.05, 0.10, 0.20, 0.50, 1.00) to choose from and combined with the 10 bet levels you’ll have lots of options. With 50 fixed bet lines the minimum bet is 0.25 but you can endlessly combine coin values and bet levels to get to the perfect bet for you. If you like to go for true excitement, being a high-roller, the Theme Park: Tickets of Fortune™ slot offers a maximum bet of 250.00 as well.
Theme Park: Tickets of Fortune™ slot features
Packed with slot features, it’s hard for me to find a beginning as you can look forward to Stacked Wild substitutions, a Claw Feature, and six(!) Theme Park Bonus Games that can be activated by spinning the Theme Park Bonus Wheel or by playing the Theme Park Ticket Game. However, a NetEnt slot will always start with the main game in which you’ll find the Stacked Wild symbols. These will appear on reels 2, 3, and 4 and can be easily recognised as Wild is written on them. They often come in clusters too which means several reels will be covered by the Stacked Wild substitutions. While stacked, the Wild itself substitutes for all symbols except for special symbols such as Scatter symbols, Bonus symbols, and Claw symbols.
When the Claw symbol shows itself on reel 5 during the main game in the Theme Park: Tickets of Fortune™ slot, you’ll witness one of the most popular carnival attractions coming into action. The Claw will grab a toy from under the reels which will result in a coin win that can go up to 15 times your current bet.
Theme Park: Tickets of Fortune™ Bonus Games activation
You need either three Scatter symbols on reel 3,4 and 5 to activate the Theme Park Ticket Game or the Bonus symbol on reel 5 to activate the Theme Park Bonus Wheel. Both bonus games will give you the opportunity to experience all the fun of a theme park or traveling carnival.
During the Theme Park Ticket Game, you’ll get a chance to collect as many tickets as possible to have a splendid time at the carnival. You’ll win tickets by stopping the Theme Park Ticket Wheel which will eventually allow you to enter the Theme Park Map to play one or several Theme Park Bonus Games. It all starts with you having three spins for the Theme Park Ticket Wheel but some of the positions award extra spins ending up in more tickets for you. More tickets means more fun with bonus games such as the Punchbag, the Sledgehammer, the Can Tower, the Skee Ball game, the Fishing, and the Duck Shoot.
These same bonus games can be activated with the help of the Bonus Wheel which will appear when the Bonus symbol ends up on reel 5 in the main game. The Bonus Wheel looks the same as the Ticket Wheel although this time, you’ll find all Bonus games on the Wheel alternated with coin wins and one Ticket Wheel activation symbol. If the Theme Park Bonus Wheel lands on a coin win, you’ll be awarded a coin win and return to the main game. If the Theme Park Bonus Wheel lands on the Theme Park Ticket Bonus symbol, you can get excited again as many tickets will be awarded and more Bonus games will be the result. If none of these, you’ll obviously activate one of the six Bonus games available in the Theme Park: Tickets of Fortune™ slot. After, you’ll return to the main game again to continue the slot game.
Experience all the fun of a fair, theme park, or traveling carnival while playing the cheerful Theme Park: Tickets of Fortune™ slot which is available at all NetEnt Casinos. Get the opportunity to get back in time as the Theme Park: Tickets of Fortune™ slot brings back memories!
