- but why not try one of these?
The sun is out, the circus is in town and it’s time to wander down to that giant tent to see what’s happening; Five Reel Circus is the name of this online slot and it’s developed by Rival Gaming. This is not a modern extravaganza – this circus is a Victorian one featuring all the acts and characters familiar to that period in time.
Five Reel Circus is, as the name suggests, a five reel slot with fifteen paylines. There’s a circus atmosphere to the design of the game but it’s the symbols which give this game it’s individuality. They include a lion, a bear on a bicycle, a balancing elephant, a performing seal, a female contortionist, a player piano, a bearded lady, a clown, the ringmaster and of course someone being fired out of a cannon.
A pair of orange-haired twins represent the scatter symbol and the roaring tiger is the wild. The wild is the highest paying symbol and worth 7500x your line stake for five on an active payline.
Those rather odd-looking flame-haired twins are the key to this feature and you will need to land three or more of them anywhere on the reels to trigger it. You will win ten free spins whether you manage three, four or five scatters.
As you can see from the video above all you need to do is click the ‘Go’ button and the spins will begin; all wins during this round will be subject to a 3x multiplier which can result in some hefty payouts if you strike lucky.
Five Reel Circus Online Slot Playing Tips
The feature is triggered by the scatter symbols so they don’t need to land on an active payline to be effective; this means low rollers can play with minimum paylines and stakes and still have the same chance of activating the free spins.
This is one of Rival’s older slots and it’s a little basic compared to newer offerings but it’s a decent enough diversion for a few minutes. The sound effects are slightly odd but you can always hit the mute button.
