Oh, for those days down at the fairground when I was a child. I was far too young to realize that downing hot dogs and going on the Wurlitzer didn’t quite mix. Then there was the ghost train which never seemed quite as scary as it should be. At least this slot game is a lot more entertaining than a few fake (?) skeletons and with this slot you can win some big cash prizes too thanks to its stacked wild symbols and unlimited free spins.
This Is a five-reel game that has a total of 20 pay-lines and that’s a fixed amount. No need to be thinking how many to activate on each spin of the reels, but working out how much to safely gamble is required. The minimum amount you can spend on one spin of the reels is 0.20 and the most a total of 20, not one to get the high rollers too interested then. Then again, with three bonus features anyone looking for some wins can’t fail to notice this game.
The game has some cartoonish symbols, but this is a fairground so that’s no bad thing. With the Ghost Train theme, too, that means this can be another game to put on your Halloween list, though it’s great to play at any time of the year. Symbols include the kind of attractions you see at your local fairground, that means bouncy castle, ghosts and dodgems which seemed to have a big influence on the way I drive as an adult. We also get the ten to Ace playing card symbols. We also get the Ghost Train Fairground Fortune logo that pays 25 times your stake for five on a pay-line.
It’s the Five Skulls Symbol that is the wild in this entertaining slot. This has a great ability and that is to substitute for other symbols in the game and hopefully that will see you getting more and more winning combinations. It can’t replace the Free Spins, Ghost Train, and Golden Ghost Train symbols because they all play key roles in activating those three bonus features this game has to offer its players. Even so, it’s a valuable symbol as will be revealed later in this review. There’s also a scatter symbol in this busy game which can reward you with 100x your total bet if five appear anywhere on the reels.
The Coconut Scatter Feature can help get you into the bonus game as it can randomly appear and turn other symbols into scatters. Fancy a ride on the Ghost Train Feature. That’s triggered when three Ghost Train symbols appear on the second, third and fourth reels. If two of the symbols and a Golden Ghost symbol appear on those reels then it’s time to play the Ghost Train Feature and have at least three rides (which is more than I could afford as a child unless I’d done particularly well on the fruit machines). Often seeing a monster on the ghost train made me laugh and wish I went to a fairground with a slightly larger budget. In this game, glimpsing a monster wins you a cash prize. When the feature ends, you are given the chance to choose a ticket and this could lead to it being retriggered and the chance to win more cash. This can happen up to five times so can prove quite lucrative.
The star of this fairground isn’t a Hall of Mirrors or a hoopla game but the Free Spins Feature. If the Bat Free Spins Symbol appears on the first, third and fifth reels then you earn ten free spins. The chances of you getting wins are increased because all of a sudden there are 50 pay-lines not 20. Want some more good news? Well the wild symbol is stacked five-high so there is even more chance of winning combinations coming along. Even better, if those free spins symbols come along again in triplicate, you can retrigger the free spins indefinitely.
There’s a fair amount going on in this game, so it’s important that you do a bit of research before playing it with real cash. Access the paytable to find out as much as you can about the game, especially the three bonus features. Also, have some free games to get those bonus rounds activated and see what they are all about.
If you like the gameplay in this game, try out these slot games. From Playtech there’s ‘Football Girls’ from Playtech, that also features a free spins round with a 1x multiplier and 20 pay-lines. Also, try the Gamesys slot ‘Nest Egg’ which also boasts stacked wilds in the free spins round.
Another great slot from Ash Gaming. It’s a good theme and well adhered to. Three bonus features keep you on the edge of your seat and if the free spins round can be continually re-triggered then the wins will mount up. The same goes for the Ghost Train feature if you can keep getting rides. Definitely recommended.
