With 7.8% of Americans reported to have a fear of clowns, the circus-themed slot Golden Ticket 2 from Play’n GO bravely goes where others dare not – dead centre of the circus ring.

Enter the Marquee of Madness

From the title alone, you’d be forgiven for thinking this is a sequel to a Roald Dahl-inspired slot franchise. Luckily, Golden Ticket 2 is set far from oversized German kids, diminutive factory helpers and oligarch chocolate magnates.

With a more than a slightly intimidating tagline: “It’s time to join the ringmaster”, it seems Play’n GO has an outing of dubious delights in store for us. If memories of a trip to the circus conjure up a nostalgic mix of toffee apple scent, cracked plastic chairs that pinch at your bum and ladies with liberal facial hair, you’re going to be at home here.

Golden Ticket 2 slot win combination

There’s so much going on in-frame that it’s hard to know where to look. I found my eyes darting back and forth across the screen as if I were watching the Wimbledon final. Phew, tiring stuff. If you just wanted to enjoy a few spins with Corrie on in the background, choosing a more sedate slot is advised.

The maelstrom that is Golden Ticket 2 makes for a hectic ride. All blaring horns and shady-looking carnie folk, Golden Ticket 2 creates a convincing world that it’s impossible not to marvel at.

The Freak Show Features

The features in Golden Ticket 2 are a class act, running on a cluster pays mechanic as opposed to the traditional paylines served up to slot players. Here, landing any three matching symbols or more in a vertical or horizontal line pays. To give you a leg up, here the win multiplier increases by 1+ with every drop.

To further boost win potential, every win – once the cluster has dissipated – is awarded a wild, slap bang in the middle of where the preceding cluster was. The cascades don’t stop until no more wins are awarded.

Free Spins

What would a trip to the circus be without a freebie or three? Clear the red highlighted bonus bar to enter the Free Spins round. Here, you have the following options to choose from: Clown – 9 Free Spins Knife thrower – 7 Free Spins with 2x multiplier Ring leader – 5 Free Spins with 3x multiplier.

Golden Ticket 2 slot free spins

Fill the Win Spin meter during Free Spins, you’ll retrigger a Win Spin. The Win Spin multiplier does not reset each spin, allowing these to roll over.

Multiplier Wilds

Fill the three sections of the bottom-left Wilds meter by landing winning combos of either the clown, ringmaster or knife thrower by 3, 4 or 5 symbols and you’re looking at fulfilling 1, 3 or 5 sections of the wilds meter.

With the wilds meter successfully full, randomly, 1 or 2 wilds are added to the grid with each wild relating to a specific character symbol. Coming in 1×1 and 2×2 sizes, multipliers come in 1, 2x and 3x form with our characters of the big top rotating each time the meter is filled.

Bets in the Big Top

Rolling up with a 96.5% RTP and a maximum win potential of 5,000x, this high volatility slot offers players the choice of bets ranging from $0.2 to $100.

Walking the Tightrope

Not being a fan of the circus-of-your-nightmares visual approach, this is a slot that I just can’t jive with. Corny (yet accomplished) character design is the least severe offence on Golden Ticket 2’s rap sheet.

The return of the clown character seems like a funny choice as it could alienate a large proportion of the audience. Or, perhaps this could – horror movie-style – draw players in, one hand covering their eyes, one hand clicking spin.

Play’n GO offers up a slot with a menagerie of features that is sure to entertain and delight in equal measure if only you can get over your deep-set fear of clowns

Golden Ticket 2, brings a much-reduced win potential of 5,000x compared to the original of 20,578x. Whether this is enough to draw in the crowds still remains to be seen.
