The worlds of entertainment and fantasy collide in this online slot from Leander Games – it’s called The Showman and our eponymous hero is on hand to offer players free spins and two clever base game features.
The Showman is a five reel slot with three rows and fifteen fixed paylines; those gold-framed reels spin under the ceiling of a plush, purple tent and on the left hand side there’s our slightly evil-looking magician, just waiting to concoct some magic trick or other.
There are lots of theme-related symbols including the hat/rabbit, the guillotine, some playing cards, a pair of handcuffs and a wand/bunch of roses combo; J, Q, K and A represent the lower values.
The Showman is wild and he’ll substitute for all standard symbols to help form winning combos; the knife throwers glamorous assistant is the bonus symbol and the twin doves are the scatter.
Base Game Features
There are two randonly activated bonuses which can occur on any spin:
- Magical Reappearing Reels – all symbols on reel one will be copied over to a random selection of other reels.
- Extra Wilds – extra wild symbols are added to the reels.
Landing three of the knife girl bonus symbols anywhere on reels one, two and three will trigger this feature and your first task will be to click on each symbol to reveal the number of free spins awarded (this will be between 8 and 20) and the multiplier (between 2x and 5x) which will be applied to each win.
Once the spins are underway every bonus symbol which lands will award an extra free spin, which is nice.
The Showman is a smooth, high quality slot with a slightly devious-looking main character but plenty in the way of charm and extra features to brighten up this particular performance. Try it, we liked it!
