Ticket to the Stars Slot Review
Technology is getting better by the day and it is a matter of days when we will be able to go on a cosmic tourist tour, flying in a space rocket instead of an ordinary plane. Well, the good people of Quickspin have developed a bit of a futuristic video slot that represents the not so distant future, called Ticket to the Stars, a five-reel, 25-payline game that takes us on a cosmic adventure. Set on a space station, the 2019 release offers a Swooping Reels feature and up to 25 free spins with an Unlimited Multiplier Meter, which increases after every third win.
As you come to the space station, you will notice a big rocket on the launching position. Other passengers are already gathering for the takeoff, so don’t be late for your flight. A gorgeous young man is the Captain, while you will be greeted by a beautiful Stewardess. A Robot will be there to serve you during your flight. Don’t forget your Luggage, because you will need some clothes up there. Five different Gemstones are used for low-paying symbols. The Wild is used as a joker and will substitute for all other symbols, except the Space Rocket Scatter, which triggers the Free Spins feature.
Even though this is a futuristic video slot with cartoon graphics and a movie soundtrack, you do not have to be a rocket scientist to understand the rules of the game. The Quickspin title offers five reels, three rows and benefits from 25 fixed paylines, which pay left to right, starting from the leftmost reel. Land at least three matching symbols on a payline if you want to win a payout. Every spin costs 25 coins, but the coin value can be changed, so you can bet as low as £0.25 and as high as £100 per single spin.
We will first mention the Swooping Reels feature, which is active both during the base game and the Free Spins feature. After every winning spin, the winning symbols will disappear, making room for new symbols to appear and hopefully create a new winning combination. Also, it seems that Wilds tend to land in stacks and can cover entire reels.
The Free Spins feature is triggered when three or more Scatters land on the reels. Gamers can get 15, 20 or 25 freebies, depending on the number of Scatters that triggered the feature. This is when spinners start to benefit from the Unlimited Multiplier Meter. After every third win, the Multiplier Meter increases by one and gives gamers two extra freebies. Your task is to land as many wins as you can to increase the Multiplier and get more free spins.
If we did our calculations right, spinners can expect more than 9,000 times the bet in a single spin, which is not that bad. Try to trigger the Free Spins feature and boost the Multiplier Meter in order to increase your winning chances. The Captain is the symbol that pays the most, offering 20 times the met for five of a kind. Five Wilds on a payline will also get you 20 times the bet. Ticket to the Stars’ RTP is 96.52%.
Ticket to the Stars on Mobile
Imagine the situation when you are traveling through the vast space, exploring distant planets and stars. Until this actually becomes possible, you can explore space with the latest Quickspin title and you do not have to go on a space ship to play the 2019 release, you can do it from the comforts of your homes, or on the go, because Ticket to the Stars is playable across all devices.
+ Free spins with unlimited multipliers
+ Wilds tend to land in stacks
+ Playable across all devices
– Not easy to trigger freebies
– Multipliers available only in free spins
We simply love the cartoon graphics and the movie soundtrack, because this got us in a proper mood while we tested the 2019 release. What we didn’t like is the fact that it will take you some time to trigger the Free Spins feature. Once you do, sky is the limit, especially if you boost the Multiplier Meter up a bit. The Swooping Reels feature can come in handy during the base game, as well as during freebies, and we always love when Wilds land in stacks and help gamers land payouts more easily. All in all, you should get your Ticket to the Stars if you get the chance.
