A Class Act
In our technologically advanced age, everything has to be bigger, better and more powerful – we’ll throw out our devices, even when they’re only a year old. But with World of Circus, you get back to the good ol’ days, when you got the most out of your products, however small or large.
As a result, the aesthetic of this slot machine is authentic but dated; you feel like you’ve gone back several decades. True, modern circuses still exist, but they’ve been revamped to sell acts that we now find more appealing, whereas back then, the appeal was in the class of the act.
Roll Up, Roll Up!
The headliner of World Circus is the scatter symbol, depicting one of the best sights anyone can see: big top tents. These are a symbol of entertainment, and so it makes sense that the slot machine image should respond in kind.
Three, four or five of the icons can be won, which is the norm, but with each match a different number of spins comes with. Three is obviously the lowest with just 5 games, whereas four matches gets you a larger number of 10, while five of a kind steals the show with 20 extra spins on the house.
We’d say that’s a show stopper in itself, but then you get the luxury of two reels becoming wild during the duration of the rounds; hello big bucks! We can smell victory in the air, even before we roll those reels.
When the game starts, you want all eyes to be on you, which means you need to know all the ropes and be able to act on cue. Not a feat for those unfamiliar with slots… or is it? World of Circus is a highly accessible title due to its interface, allowing even the most novice of player to get a game started with no hassle.
The control panel is well labelled and, while not fully integrated into the theme of the game, provides an easy way of spinning and winning. Your main buttons at to the centre, while the betting range is to the right and the autoplay to the left.
Got My Ticket
Tickets to such shows can sell out like hotcakes, which is why getting in while the iron is still hot is super important. Merkur have provided a simple betting system that works out the total bet for you, allowing a simple couple of clicks and then you’re rolling along.
All users will begin with a min stake of 0.10, but that can be steadily increased all the way up to a cheap and cheerful 20 credits. You may think that figure sounds steep, but it’s nothing compared to the pay-ins we’ve seen elsewhere; World of Circus is a bargain!
The Show Must Go On
The theme of this slot machine had us jabbing that spin widget quicksmart, but it took flexible gameplay to reel us in. World of Circus wasn’t as flashy as we had expected, but it was more than enjoyable; the child inside all of us grinning with glee. If you’re tired of the usual Merkur format, or maybe slots in general, just give this one a whirl before you give up the ghost completely.
