Theme Park: Tickets of Fortune – Intro
The day is finally here – we're going to have a thrilling ride on NetEnt's newly released Theme Park: Tickets of Fortune! The classic fairground theme will appeal to players who used to love all the bumper car and the duck shooting action in their childhood days.
Actually, it's not only these two games that are featured in this mobile slot, but four more too. Add to that the base game feature of the Claw and this game comes to a grand total of seven special features! This could even rival NetEnt's Guns N Roses, so let's see how Theme Park: Tickets of Fortune fared when we put it through its paces in this mobile slot review.
About The Slot
In a nutshell, this is a very exciting summer release – we couldn't think of a more season appropriate theme that would be as vibrant and unique. This funfair themed NetEnt slot isn't just visually appealing, but it's also stuffed with feature games, where you can win multipliers and bonus cash too.
As is standard, the new game has been rolled out for play on all platforms including desktop, smartphone and tablet. Yet, perhaps more eye-catching is the fact that it's got 50 paylines and seven featuers – plenty to keep you interested and go on playing all summer long. And now, for a limited time only, Casino Room are running a promotion to boost the uptake of this new NetEnt mobile slot. You can get up to 200 extra spins to check Theme Park: Tickets of Fortune out, so don't snooze!
Will This Be The Ride Of Your Life?
On first glance, Theme Park: Tickets of Fortune looks dashing. The slot itself loads very fast on a mobile device and the funfair music in the background sets the mood of ‘sugar-induced hyperactivity.' Think ice-cream, cotton candy and a bottle of an excessively sugary drink all consumed one after the other.
This state is given a further boost when you start looking around: rainbow coloured balloons floating about, lower paying symbols shaped like balloons and higher paying symbols shaped like those special pricey balloons that your parents would almost certainly would refuse to buy.
Now, you can certainly have it all – watch out for bumper cars, swan boats, horses, rockets and planes to take your wins to that other level. If you wouldn't have seen the any of the screenshots of this game, it still wouldn't be hard to guess that lots of primary colours are featured, the visuals are very basic yet entertaining and the graphics are all snappy and attention grabbing. Just like in children's amusement parks.

The Base Wins Are Definitely Decent
Except that this game isn't for children, far from it. If you're of legal age to enjoy new mobile slots, then Theme Park: Tickets of Fortune could be the ticket to change your own fortunes. It undoubtedly looks a lot like Balloonies, but the way that the wins are credited is slightly different. This is a five reel mobile slot with 50 paylines. Let us just reiterate that – 50 paylines! This means that the scope for combining winning symbols is much bigger than in a standard mobile slot.
From just 25p, you can spin those reels hoping for a combination of the special symbols to sweep you off your feet and get your heart racing. Bets range all the way up to £250 and wins come pretty regularly, making this a low/medium variance slot.
What's more is the maximum win is 75,300 coins and depending on how much you're wagering per spin, things could get real serious, real fast. And that's not to mention the various features, such as the Stacked Wilds that can boost your winnings further. Read all about the features in the section below.
Game Features: Here Come The Games!
We'd be fooling you to think that this is an overly complicated game with many layers and way too many features to it. Superficially, seven special bonus features might indeed sound as too many, but almost all of them stem from the Theme Park Bonus feature. Thus, six funfair games are all available to play to score multipliers – it's great!
But first let's chat about the two features which you might encounter while playing the base game itself. By this we mean excluding the bonus games that you can get to with three scatter symbols – more on which below.
So, obviously there are the Wilds, which will substitute for all non-feature symbols and boost your winnings slightly. The stakes get higher and the wins get proportionally bigger when you take into consideration that the Wilds can come as Stacked Wilds. A full reel of roller-coaster cars can show up on reels two, three or four, or maybe even all of the above. If that's the case, a mega win is almost guaranteed as it will completely blow apart the paytable, in a good way of course!
However, the Wilds cannot substitute for The Claw symbol, which is another feature triggering symbol. It will appear on the last reel only and will trigger a massive claw to come down and pull out a random prize from below the reels. Graphically impressive, the feature also offers a good boost to your winnings. A multiplier anywhere from 2x to 15x will be applied to your latest wager amount.
We know how frustrating those machines are and the chances of winning are rigged against the player. But don't despair as Theme Park: Tickets of Fortune has been vetted by the UK Gambling Commission and complies with all fairness regulations! In other words, the chances are higher of you winning every time you hit the Claw feature on this game than it is to get a fluffy toy out of those pure evil machines.
Every Funfair Game As A Mini-Bonus Round
Actually, let us re-phrase – there is nothing mini about those bonus games, because they really can either make or break your gaming session. But let's start at the beginning. When three scatter symbols show up on your reels, it's time to celebrate as you're taken through to the Theme Park Ticket Game.
Think of it as a sort of preamble to the actual bonus game, where you will have a set number of goes at collecting tickets. The main goal here is to collect as many tickets as you can to play funfair games later, but there's nothing you can do – just spin the wheel and hope for the best outcome. Then, depending on how many tickets you've gathered, you can choose which games to spend them on.
As a little side-note, it's worthwhile mentioning that you can also get to the Theme Park Ticket Game through the Theme Park Bonus Wheel. Watch out for the bonus symbol on the last reel and you'll be taken the to Wheel, where clicking ‘stop' will reveal your prize. A 2x or 4x multiplier, a bunch of tickets or a mini-game round can all be won through this. And there are six mini-games:
- Punch Bag – just one ticket to enter this game, in which you can punch your way to a 2x to 25x multiplier
- Sledge Hammer – two tickets to enter; this is one of the more lucrative games with multipliers from 1x to 100x
- Can Tower – three tickets to enter, knock down all the cans for a massive multiplier of 864x!
- Duck Shoot – the most expensive game to enter at 10 tickets, shoot five random ducks for ever-increasing multipliers and coin wins
- Skee Ball – five tickets to enter, throw five balls to reveal which multiplier of up to 20x you'll get
- Fishing – seven tickets to enter, you'll get five picks to fish around for the biggest multiplier ranging from 2x to 50x; up to five additional picks can also be won
