Look and feel
Fairground Fortunes Ghost Train is a 5-reel game with 20 fixed paylines in the base game. The reels spin to the sound of a mystical fairground theme that gets interrupted by loud winning noises anytime you land a winning combination.
The five highest paying symbols are all symbols inspired by the slot theme like the ghost train logo, ghosts, train carts, etc. Apart from these symbols, the game also has five lower paying symbols, which are all card symbols that rank from the ace as the higher paying one to the 10 as the lowest paying symbol in the game.
Fairground Fortunes Ghost Train slot has an estimated RTP of 94.06%. But despite looking like a ‘light’ slot game, this slot is actually a mid-high variance game. Since all paylines are fixed, you will only be able to adjust your bet per payline but not how many paylines you want active. The minimum bet is £0.20, or £0.01 per payline, while the maximum you can bet is £20 per spin.
The first bonus feature in the slot is the wild symbol which can trigger winning combinations of up to 25x. The scatters, on the other hand, can trigger wins of up to 100x your stake. The game also has a randomly triggered feature that turns regular symbols into scatters during any spin.
Free spins in the game can be won by collecting 3 Bat Free Spins symbols on reels 1, 3 and 5. There’s a total of 10 free spins you can win in the main game and they can be re-triggered indefinitely. During the free spins round, the game adds 30 extra paylines and turns any wild symbols that appear into stacked 5-high wilds.
The final bonus feature is the Ghost Train feature, which is triggered when 3 Ghost Train symbols appear on reels 2, 3, and 4 for 1 “ride” on the train or when 2 Ghost Train symbols and 1 Golden Ghost Train symbol appear for at least 3 “rides” on the train. The bonus train ride is a Ghost Train ride where every monster that appears on the screen gives you a cash prize. At the end of the ride, you will get to choose a ticket to retrigger the feature for up to a total of 5x times.
