Ticket to the Stars Slot, the futuristic slot from Stockholm-based games geniuses Quickspin, is set on a space station. It whisks you away on a galactic adventure across the solar system with a flight attendant, droid and pilot as your guides. There are five reels and 25 Paylines here, and you can expect cartoon-style graphics.
The features in this game are out of this world, and include multipliers, stacked Wilds and what Quickspin calls swooping reels; basically a chain reaction in which all symbols on a Payline blow-up and replacements whizz in until there are no further winning combos.
Forget waiting for space travel to become a reality – pack your bags and head for the stars today!
How to play
Ticket to the Stars Slot plays well across all devices, mobile and otherwise, from 25p to £100 a pop. Set your bets in the usual fashion and you’re ready for blast-off!
Many of the symbols in it are blue, green, pink, white and red gemstones, alongside more lucrative icons such as bottles of bubbly, luggage, flight attendants, butler droids and the pilot. The latter is the highest-value symbol of all at 20x stake for five on a line. (We’re not sure why he needs aviator-style shades in outer space, but never mind!)
Ticket to the Stars Slot special features
The golden Wild icon is worth as much as the pilot, plus it’s the only emblem to display fully stacked on the reels. It replaces all the game’s icons bar the Scatter and can form winning combinations on its own when you land at least three on any active Payline.
The free spins round is pretty much the main event in Ticket to the Stars Slot. Land three, four or five bonus icons to receive 15, 20 or 25 freebies respectively.
After every third win, the multiplier meter goes up by a factor of one and adds a couple of extra whirls to your tally. (This meter appears only during the free spins round.) Additionally, the swooping reels feature applies here, so the potential to win big becomes quite exciting.
And there are no limits to the number of free spins you can win, or on the multiplier.
Active during both the bonus round and the main game, this feature can be launched by any Payline win. The icons vanish, making way for fresh symbols, which swoop in to potentially help create more prize-yielding combos. The feature only finishes when there are no further combinations to be had.
Return to Player (RTP)
Be aware from the outset that this is a high-variance slot. There’s a standard RTP or Return to Player of 96.52%.
Ticket to the Stars is a simple game, which may be a good or bad thing depending on what you like. This slot offers plenty of light-hearted fun, looks superb and is accompanied by a movie-style soundtrack.
One or two reviewers have remarked they’d like to see greater winning potential outside the free spins round and more innovative features, while others have commended the visuals and slick gameplay. Clearly, numerous other space-themed slots are, well, out there.
Give it a whirl for yourself to see whether you love it to the moon and back – or whether it bores you to infinity!
