The Acts on the Reels
The design of this game has been laid out on a five reel and four row interface, so it’s slightly larger than the standard video slot offerings. However, it’s upon these reels that you’ll find the variety of different symbols, and these start with the frequently seen A, J, K, Q and 5 icons. Accompanying these are various different higher paying symbols, starting with the girl dressed in red who is flying through the air on ropes. There’s also a gymnast dressed in blue who is holding herself up on one arm, while the third icon is a girl dressed in yellow. Finally, there’s a girl dressed in green to provide the fourth symbol, and the image of a man dressed up in costume is the fifth.
As well as the reels, rows and icons which create this game’s interface, High 5 Games have also added a total of 40 different pay lines. All players have the chance to customise these though, and this is done by using the arrow buttons at the right of the ‘Lines’ box. In addition to this, you can also change the bet you place per round, and this is done by altering the wager placed per line between $0.01 and $10. Putting this at its maximum level will allow you to place a high overall bet of $400 per round.
The Special Features of the Circus
As far as the added extras of this product are concerned, you’ll find that there a few different ones provided, which have appeared in several other games from this developer. The first of these can be seen during the base game, and these are known as the double image. This is basically a double of a single icon in one symbol, and whenever one of these shows up on the reels, it will act as two standard icons.
There’s also the inclusion of a wild symbol, which is easily identified by the world ‘WILD’ written across a blue background. As a wild, it will substitute for all other symbols on the reels in order to form a winning combination, with the only exception to this being the scatter icon. It will also substitute as a double symbol in character icon wins.
The scatter symbol of the game is represented by the symbol bearing the word ‘FREE SPINS’. You’ll need to spin 12 of these onto the reels in all positions on reels two, three and four in order to trigger the freespins round. You’ll be provided with seven freespins for this round, and it’s played on the same set of reels, which feature the same standard icons, but in different colours.
Finally, there’s the inclusion of a ‘Super Stacks Feature’, and this sees the reels contain stacks of mystery symbols which will transform into another icon. All stacked mystery symbol positions on a reel transform into the same icon.
Circuses provide nations with a plentiful selection of entertainment, and so too does this game. Although it has many of the same special features that are included in various games from this developer, they work very well with the overall theme of it.
