About Ticket To The Stars Slot
In 2018, like a few other slot studios we know, Quickspin tweaked their position a little to follow in the footsteps of high variance pioneers, Big Time Gaming, and start pushing out games with massive potential.
Whilst we were all led to believe that Dwarves Gone Wild was going to be the stand-out game of their release schedule, in fact that accolade was more fitting for games like Ivan the Immortal King (reportedly 40,000x top payout) and Tiger’s Glory.
And it’s exciting to see that Quickspin show no signs in changing direction in 2019 as this February release shows. The mighty Ticket To The Stars game promises a 10,000x + payout potential and comes with a wicked mix of free spins, cascading symbols and unlimited multipliers – the kind of features that send any high variance slot fan into a frenzy.
Feeling pumped? Then let’s get to it and find out what this slots all about.
Gameplay, Symbols and Pay Tables
In some ways this is a classic Quickspin slot. The artwork, as we have come to expect, is superb. The theme is a futuristic space travel one, complete with passengers, flight attendant and smartly-dressed pilot. It must be first class travel because champagne and flutes pitch up on the reels too. Those who remember Play n Go’s Planet Fortune from 2018 will spot similarities in the design.
There are 5 reels, 3 rows and 25 fixed paylines in Ticket To The Stars. The game format uses Swooping Reels, or what we also know as Cascading Reels (made famous in Gonzo’s Quest but used many times over since). Here, symbols in winning lines disappear and are replaced with new ones that drop in. This process repeats until no more win lines are created.
There are low-value symobls: white, blue, green, pink and red gemstones. And there are premium symbols: champagne, a droid, a flight attendant and a pilot (20x for five on a payline).
Lookout as well for the wild which substitutes for all other symbols bar the bonus and also pays out 20x for five on a payline. It also comes in full stacks.
Features and Bonuses
Like all good high variance slot games, the real fun in Ticket To The Stars comes in the free spins round which has the potential to be EPIC! Why? Well, when you have up to 25 free spins in your starting cache, cascading wins and progressive, unlimited multipliers, and over 10,000x top payout, then there is a lot to get excited about.
You’ll need to land 3, 4 or 5 bonus symbols to score 15, 20 or 25 spins. Then, for every THIRD winning line that lands in the bonus round will increase your multiplier by 1 AND get you 2 extra spins.
Sound good? We expect things to get tough trying to unlock the spins, but when players do we can see some thrilling big win videos coming up soon. So watch this space!
The Slot Buzz Verdict
Ticket To The Stars is another high variance slot that will both delight and infuriate. Of course, more often than not it will be the latter, and before you get to that bonus round you may face a great many dry and winless rounds. However, when the wins come we sense they will come big. Like BTG’s best slots – Bonanza, White Rabbit and other classics – this one can combine free spins, unlimited multipliers and cascading wins to devastating effect. So if you choose to have a spin on Ticket To The Stars, do so with all that in mind.
