If your memories of an evening at the circus are cheery affairs with smiling clowns and bendy contortionists then perhaps it’s time for a step into the darker tent to visit Sinister Circus, this online slot machine from 1×2 Gaming with creepy characters, scary animals, free spins and wild features.
Sinister Circus is a five reel slot with three rows and twenty five fixed paylines; it’s a purposely gloomy affair with those reels spinning within a dull, gold frame floating against a grim, candlelit carnival scene behind.
The high value symbols include the magician, the fortune teller, the tiger, the monkey and the bear while lamplit playing card symbols represent the lower values.
The clown and the whip are both wild in the base game and will replace all standard symbols to help form winning combinations; the clown will also expand to cover all positions on his reel. The throwing knives are the scatter symbols.
This is triggered by landing three, four or five of the throwing knife scatter symbols anywhere in view and for that you’ll receive 8, 10 or 15 free spins respectively; the two wild symbols mentioned above are not present during this feature but they’re replaced by the throwing axes which perform the same function. It’s not possible to trigger any more spins but any wild symbols will stick in place for the next three spins.
There’s a gloomy, creepy atmosphere to Sinster Circus which is entirely appropriate for the subject matter; it’s a slot to be played with the lights off and the sound cranked up for the full circusy effect.
