Enjoy a luxurious cruise around the galaxy In Ticket to the Stars, a hugely volatile space-themed video slot from Quickspin. As usual for a game from this developer, there’s a heady combination of high class design, interesting features and high variance action. Highlights include swooping reels and a free spins round complete with expanding multipliers. Play on your PC, tablet or mobile device from between 25p and £100 per spin.
There are few better developers than Quickspin when it comes to design and that’s proved once again in Ticket to the Stars which looks and sounds superb. The setting is the launchpad of a space station. On the reels are 5 jewel symbols as well as a selection of symbols relating to a VIP intergalactic journey. In order of value are a suitcase, bottle of champagne, a robot waiter and an air hostess. The ship’s captain is the most rewarding symbol. This pays 1, 6 or 20 times your total bet for a 3, 4 or 5 symbol combination.
The golden ticket is the wild. This can spin in full stacks and hit on all 5 reels. Like the ship’s captain, it offers payouts of up to 20 times your total bet per payline. The action takes place using a Swooping Reels feature. After a winning spin, the successful symbols are removed and new ones drop in and replace them. The swoops keep on coming as a long as a new winning combination hits.
The main feature here is the Free Spins Bonus feature – you’ll win 15, 20 or 25 free spins if you land 3, 4 or 5 of the bonus symbol on the same spin. Boosting your winning potential here is the Unlimited Multiplier Meter feature. After every third win, the multiplier, which starts at 1x, increases by 1. Every third win also adds 2 extra free spins to your tally. There’s no limit to how high the multiplier, and free spins, can go.
As usual for a Quickspin video slot, Ticket to the Stars looks and sounds superb. The gameplay is solid enough too. It’s pretty feisty as well. This is a very volatile offering with top wins of 9714.2 times your bet on every free spin! We’re some years away from space tourism. In the meantime, Ticket to the Stars is an entertaining substitute. If a galactic adventure is needed, I also recommend you try Playtech’s Galactic Streak.
