Update 22/06/2016: You can now play this NetEnt slot at Leo Vegas mobile casino »
NetEnt have announced their next game release out June 22nd 2016; The Theme Park: Tickets of Fortune slot machine. Will it be any good? We find out.
Use to be, the announcement of a new NetEnt slot game would bring little thrills to the pit of our stomach.
These days however, it’s a little hit or miss as to what we are getting.
So will the Theme Park: Tickets of Fortune game live up to its non-expectations?
We have some special information, and slot video, to look into it further.
This video is a little longer than the usual NetEnt slot preview, but that’s only because there is a fair amount of bonus games to get through.
If you are reading this at work (gasp!) and can’t watch it, don’t worry, we’ll give you a quick recap below.
So first of all, what did you think about the slot theme?
It’s bubbly and fun, that’s for sure, but something was nagging us the moment we first saw it.
LeoVegas gives you free spins on multiple NetEnt slots + 4 deposit bonuses to play for longer.
Usually, when it comes to NetEntertainment slots, you can expect either a theme that is totally original, or has an unusual twist.
Take something like Koi Princess for example. Not exactly original, but the manga princess and magical koi bonuses gave it a little razzle dazzle that makes it stand out from other Asian slots.
The same can’t be said here, because upon closer inspection, we realised that we were suddenly reminded of two very different IGT slots.
You’d get the Theme Park: Tickets of Fortune slot machine. No really, have a look at Balloonies, with it’s pretty ballon shaped high symbol cards.
Or how about how the Cash Coaster slot has stacked wild reels in the form of a roller coaster descending upon the rows in a dramatic cry.
Now, maybe we are nitpicking. Maybe some of you out there will get all philosophical on us and say that there’s no such thing as an original idea.
Fine. Let’s say all of that.
Is this Theme Park game better than all the other Theme Park casino games? It’s pretty enough, and it has the sound quality that we’ve come to expect. But if it’s going to dazzle, it’s going to need to pull something special out of the bonus game bag.
There are a total of 2 features in the base game, that we can see, and 6 potential bonus mini-games which you can trigger via two different bonus symbols.
The features in the base game are simple enough; stacked wilds, and a random mystery ‘claw’ prize every once in a while.
How effective they might be we will know on the 22nd of June.
The 6 mini-games however, are interesting, as they each have clear values; the more tickets you need to play them, the more you can win on them. Should make it fairly easy to pick out the good ones.
Bet, with all this talk of multiple mini-games and feature, you totally missed in the video that this Theme Park: Tickets of Fortune mobile slot is clearly missing one thing: free spins.
That’s right, we had to go through the video a couple of times, writing out each bonus, then we realised that somehow, we’d totally missed that there was no free spins bonus here.
Will that affect our enjoyment? Not necessarily. There’s other mobile phone video slots we’ve enjoyed that don’t need free spins to keep us entertained.
Right now, off the top of our heads, we can’t think of any, but we are pretty sure they exist.
Hey, we’ve reviewed hundreds of mobile slot machines, you can’t blame us for not having perfect recall. Though it does say something that most of the games we play with some regularity tend to have free spins.
What we are really hoping is that it’s those stacked wild reels that will bring the true excitement to this Theme Park: Tickets of Fortune slot game.
Because if they are dependent on 6 click me games to keep us amused, and have the kind of wins that leave us high on more than sugar, we suspect we won’t be playing for long.

You need one big feature that keeps promising, and at times delivering, the kind of wins that make your heart beat as fast as if you were on an actual roller coaster.
Because no offence to the punchbag, fishing, or can tower games, but those are not the reason we’ve ever gone to a theme park for.
In fact, if tradition follows, hopefully NetEnt won’t make those mini bonus games rigged against us.
Honestly, we’d be lying if we were saying that this little trailer has made us count down the days towards June 22nd.
Maybe there is a mild curiosity. Maybe we remain vaguely hopeful as NetEnt has surprised us before.
Honestly, we are more excited about the new Football Champions Cup slot, coming on 23rd of May, and neither of us in the team love football that much.
But, theme aside, at least it has some interesting game mechanics that makes it stand out from the pack.
Worse case scenario, Net Entertainment probably still host most of the best online slots on the net, so even if neither of the next two releases aren’t worth your while, you’ve still got plenty of classics to fall back onto.
