It’s a circus, slots fans, but not as we know it – there are no cheerful clowns or trapeze artists and certainly no lion tamer; this is The Twisted Circus online slot from Microgaming and it features a whole horde of grotesque and bizarre characters who would probably be more interesting to watch than a regular circus.
The slot features five reels and 243 ways to win and the dark ambience of the game is enhanced by the gloomy setting and the blood red curtain which hangs poised above the reels. All the symbols are related to the circus theme and so from low to high value we have a monkey with an accordion, a moustachioed lady eating a watermelon, a half male/half female character, a contortionist, twins, a tattooed strongman, a scantily clad snake charmer and a fire breather.
The special symbols are a ringmaster bonus, a Twisted Circus wild and an entry ticket scatter.
Circus Match Bonus
You can activate this mini-game by landing the ringmaster scatter symbols on reels three, four or five; you will then be taken to a screen showing sixteen stars set out in a square.
Your task now is to keep picking stars until you reveal three matching circus characters at which point you will win a prize proportional to that person. Three wild symbols are also there and if you can find those first you’ll win payouts for all characters.
We all like a free spins round and Twisted Circus doesn’t come up short in that respect; first you have to land three or more of the entry ticket scatter symbols anywhere on the reels and for this you will receives a spooky thirteen spins.
Any prizes you win during this feature are tripled and the good news is that not only can you win more free spins now but you can also activate the Circus Match bonus from here.
243 Ways To Win
Microgaming dispenses with normal paylines here and allows the player to win as long as matching symbols are in adjacent reels.
This is gloriously spooky game with a great range of creepy, animated characters; the music is appropriately dark but also a little circusy. Two lucrative bonus games mean this is slot well worth trying out.
