Play’n GO releases Golden Ticket sequel
Veteran iGaming software developer Play’n GO recently released its latest game, Golden Ticket 2, a follow-up to its hit title launched back in 2014.
This 5-reel 5-row video slot packs a range of exciting features with improved graphics without compromising the originality. The game retains many unique features like the grid, win format, and drop multipliers, along with a range of additional bonuses.
The improvements don’t hamper the look and feel of the old circus theme that its predecessor famously depicted. The studio, however, included a bunch of additional perks to individualize Golden Ticket 2. Wild Multipliers are triggered when the Wild Meter fills up with premium characters. The list includes a blindfolded knife-thrower, a clown, and a ringmaster.
Bonus, Scatters and Payouts
Play’n GO vigorously shook up in-game features with a range of bonuses including free spins and multiplier wilds. At the left-hand side of the screen is a 3-segment meter that is filled with subsequent premium wins. Completely filling the meter triggers 1 or 2 multiplier wilds that are randomly added to the reels.
At the right, one of three premium characters appears, influencing the nature of the win. While the clown symbol initiates a 1x bonus, the knife-thrower and ringmaster symbols amplify wins by 2x and 3x respectively. Triggering multiplier wins once per round reshuffles the premium characters.
Like the original title, the word BONUS hides behind the grid. Clearing the symbols in-front activates free spins with three options. Pro-tip, the less free spins, the higher the multiplier. Players must choose the most suitable option accordingly. The list includes:
- 5 highly volatile spins with a 3x multiplier bonus
- 7 medium volatile spins with a 2x multiplier bonus
- 9 volatile spins with a 1x multiplier bonus
Filling all three segments of the meter during free spins triggers Win Spins through a 2×2 segment of the multiplier wilds. The win multiplier resets while shuffling between Free Spins and Win Spins. Filling five segments of the meter triggers another round of Win Spins. But this time the win multiplier isn’t reset, amplifying the player’s chances of winning a bigger payout.
Golden Ticket 2 closely resembles its predecessor while introducing a few novelties. Despite flaunting similar visual cues, the potential for winning is much higher in the latest title. Higher volatility should attract veteran gamers, while the unique circus concept lures amateurs. The decision to remove the target shooting bonus game is a blow. And even though the prizes weren’t lucrative, it was fun and worked well with the theme.
The latest bonus game is a lot more interactive and is capable of producing intense moments while handing larger payouts. Golden Ticket 2 offers a maximum payout of 5,000x the total stake and 96.5% RTP, which is roughly double the payout of the first game. Overall, Golden Ticket 2 immerses players with its circus theme and jackpot. The mash-up is as exciting as spending a day out at the circus!
