The Twisted Circus

The Twisted Circus
Circuses are already pretty twisted places to begin with but this online slot game adds a new level of weird to that notion. The twisted circus has an air of Victorian freak show about it with its moustached women, tattooed strong men, and conjoined twins. Spin today and earn some creepy cash rewards, free spins and bonuses. There’s also an accordion playing monkey that’s wearing a fez! What’s not to like?

About the Game
You would be forgiven if you thought that Microgaming would want to create an online slot game with a theme about a delightful day at the circus. The downside is that this is a developer who likes to mix things up every now and then; The Twisted Circus is fairly disconcerting when you first load it up, with discordant fairground music that definitely gives this game an air of uncertainty… This is not a theme to be done in half measures. With a name that is reminiscent of a Stephen King book, The Twisted Circus plays off this creepy theme to make sure you try your luck at somewhere a little less jovial; but not less profitable. The symbols on this game are completely customised, with snake charmers, bearded ladies, and a creepy looking monkey – with no classic casino slot symbols, the aesthetic of this game remains true even during the spins.

With a fairly standard five by three reel system, The Twisted Circus is an easy game to get invested in. You can bet low, or high, depending on your mood, and the symbols themselves are easy to view on desktop, tablet, or mobile devices. This is incredibly useful if you feel the urge to distance yourself from this eerie game! This online slot game is quite generous with its free spins bonus, achieved by getting three or more Scatter Tickets on a reel -  this lets you into the circus. During this time, you get (an unlucky?) thirteen free spins, with a generous multiplier of 3x for every win you get during this time. Of course, it would not be an online slot game without the Wild feature – illustrated by the game’s logo. This symbol is substituted for every other symbol on the reel, except for the bonus and scatter features. If you see three bonus Ringmasters on reels 3, 4, and 5, this triggers the Circus Match Bonus. Match any 3 symbols to win a prize. Four hidden wilds can substitute for all symbols and award multiple wins.

The Verdict
Although a delightfully creepy theme, which might put some people off, The Twisted Circus has the potential to pay out in huge amounts, if you are lucky. The music can be muted if it is distracting, and you can sit back, and appreciate the high-quality graphics that Microgaming prides itself on creating. Recommended!
