Twisted Circus capitalizes on the underlying creepiness of the circus itself that many people find unsettling in real life. This imaginative video slot features a wide array of characters that would be more at home in a traveling freak show than the kind of family-friendly circus you’re more likely to see today.

Twisted Circus is another Microgaming video slot, which means you can play it at online casinos such as Gaming Club Casino, Jackpot City, Music Hall Casino, Mummys Gold Casino, and many, many others.

Twisted Circus Basic Information

Twisted Circus makes good on its promise of a different take on what could otherwise be a familiar, rather dull theme. It does so first with its animation style, as it eschews the all-too-usual cartoonish look for a watercolored, realistic look that still features vibrant colors but fits more with a slightly old-fashioned theme. There’s not a lot of glitz, glamour, or shine here, as there shouldn’t be.

Some suitably mysterious music plays during the game, and there are sound effects to go along with it, though they get a bit annoying and you may end up muting them, if you’re like me. The symbols animate with many wins, but a lot of the animations just involve the characters stiffly moving about. Still, the symbols, which include the bearded lady, a snake charmer, a fire eater, Siamese twins, a ringmaster, and a creepy looking monkey, are well-illustrated and interesting to look at.

Twisted Circus Coin Values and Jackpots

Twisted Circus has a coin bet range of 1 cent to 20 cents, with stops at 2 cents, 5 cents, and so on in between. However, this game is perfect for high rollers, as the ability to bet 20 coins per line means you can wager a staggering $120 per spin, should you choose to. You can also play for as low as 30 cents per spin, if you prefer. This game is not really geared towards casual players, at those prices.

The maximum coin jackpot is 60,000 coins, which is quite nice, and can be multiplied by 20 to 1,200,000 coins if you bet the maximum number of coins per line. With multipliers and bonuses, you can win even more if you are lucky.

Twisted Circus Jackpot Rules

The most valuable symbol in Twisted Circus is the Scatter symbol, which is that of a ticket that you would use to exchange for prizes at the circus. It is the symbol which is worth 60,000 coins, should you get five of them on any of the reels during play.

Twisted Circus Special Symbols

The wild symbol is the Twisted Circus logo, which can substitute for any symbol besides special symbols. When it does substitute for other symbols to create a winning combination, it also triples your win, which is great.

The scatter ticket is a scatter symbol that pays with two or more of them. If you get three or more of them, you earn 13 free spins, as well. There is also the ringmaster, who is a bonus symbol and pays out when you get three of him.

Twisted Circus Bonus Games

The Twisted Circus really livens up when you get into its bonus modes. When the ringmaster appears on the third, fourth, and fifth reels, you will get into the Circus Match bonus game. Then, you will see 16 symbols that are hidden. If you can match three characters, you win a prize.

The free spins mode is excellent, as once you enter by getting three scatter tickets, you not only get your 13 free spins, but a 3x multiplier that makes your wins that much more impressive. Free spins can also be re-triggered, and bonus symbols can be had in this mode, as well.

Final Thoughts

Twisted Circus is more than just a cool gimmick, it is also a well-made video slot with plenty of features to make you enjoy your time and help you to earn prizes. The bonus features are excellent, and we know that our fellow Canadian players are big fans of the 243 ways to win tech that this game includes. This is a good game to try.
