Fairground Fortunes Ghost Train is a Playtech-powered slot with 5 reels and 20 paylines. Playable on all devices from as little as 20p to as much as £20 per spin, this game takes you a classic fairground with a ghost train element. It has 3 bonus features including unlimited free spins.

Visually, Fairground Fortunes Ghost Train has cartoon style graphics and has an eerie/horror theme – set inside a ghost train ride, symbols on the reels including regular playing card symbols (A, K, Q, J and 10) as well as bouncy castles, dodgems, ghosts and the Ghost Train Fairground Fortunes logo – the latter rewards you with 25 times your stake for 5 across a payline.

The 5 skulls symbol is the wild and substitutes for all symbols except the Free Spins, Ghost Train and Golden Ghost Train symbols – 5 on them on a payline rewards you with 25 times your stake. The broken coconut is the scatter symbol with 2, 3, 4 or 5 giving you 2, 5, 20 or 100 times your total bet.

On any spin in the base game, random symbols can transform into scatters to help you trigger the bonus feature more easily. This is known as the Coconut Scatter feature.

There’s a Ghost Train feature which is played when you get 3 Ghost Train symbols on the 3 middle reels (reels 2, 3 and 4) – if you get 2 Ghost Train symbols and 1 Golden Ghost Train symbol on the 3 middle reels, you will play the Ghost Train feature with at least 3 rides.

Each monster you encounter on the ride rewards you with a cash prize. At the end of the feature, you choose a ticket for a chance to retrigger the feature. Luckily, you can retrigger up to 5 times! I’ve won just over 200 times my total stake a few times.

The main attraction is the Free Spins feature which is played when you get the Bat Free Spins symbol on reels 1, 3 and 5 simultaneously – this gives you 10 free spins which play out on an extra 30 paylines (taking your total to 50). Look out for wild symbols as they are stacked 5-high during the feature. Finally, you can retrigger the feature indefinitely!

I really like Fairground Fortunes Ghost Train – the cartoon style graphics work rather well with this creepy yet light-hearted themed game. Don’t let the soft approach fool you as it’s a medium to high variance game. I found the bigger wins to come in the Free Spins feature due to the stacked 5-high wilds and the possibility for many free spins. All round, a great job, as always, from Playtech.

If you like the fairground theme, Fluffy Favourites from Eyecon is worth playing as it’s 1 of the UK’s most popular slot games.
