Microgaming Circus Themed Online Slots


Microgaming has announced the release of two new online slot games for next month. One of these is Six Acrobats, which seems to have a circus theme. How exactly the theme will unfold will be known when the game goes live early in July. Meanwhile you can check out some of the other circus themed online slots at Microgaming online casinos like Royal Vegas, Golden Riviera and All Slots.

The most interesting of these is The Twisted Circus. This online slot game does not have the usual circus symbols like clowns and seals. Instead you have some of the more bizarre performers like snake charmer, fire breather, bearded lady, tattooed muscleman, Siamese twins and musical monkeys. There are two bonus features. The first one is a standard free spins feature that awards 13 free spins in which all payout are tripled. The free spins can be retriggered. The second one, which is a bonus game on the second screen, is more interesting. It is triggered by the ring master symbol. A number of symbols on the screen appear concealed. You click on them one at a time to expose them. As soon as you get a match of three same symbols, you win the payout awarded by that symbol. You may reveal a wild symbol that can substitute for any of the others. The Twisted Circus has the popular 243 ways to win structure.

Big Top is an early circus themed online slot from Microgaming and is therefore simpler in construction. There are no bonus features so you get fast paced action on the reels. But the volatility is on the higher side with only 9 paylines. The symbols are depicted as you would find in a children’s picture book. The highest line payout is awarded by the game logo which pays a massive 5000 times the line bet for a five symbols win. The other thematic symbols on the reels are tiger as the ringmaster, clown, elephant on a cycle and seal balancing a ball. The playing card icons make up the low paying symbols. A colourful Wild logo is the wild symbol. It substitutes for all symbols except the scatter symbol. The scatter symbol is the monkey. It awards payouts multiplied by the total bet. The highest scatter payout for five symbols is 50 times the total bet.
