Five Reel Circus impressed even though it’s a bit old. There aren’t many games with this theme, which is surprising since it provides such a fun and colourful video slot. It would have been a fantastic addition if the game was launched later and featured 3D graphics and animations. However, we were entertained with its features and symbols that appear.
The bonus features are enjoyable and provide winnings in various ways. The wild symbol is the most active out of all features as they provide winnings for other combinations on any line. The tiger represents this symbol and can substitute for all others and provide additonal winnings. The scatters cannot complete a combination by using the wilds, but players will find scatters have value. The cannon,which is ths scatter, will reward wins based on bet multipliers when at least 2 appear at the same time. Get all five cannon scatters anywhere on the reels to receive 750x the bet total.
The other scatters appear as the circus tent. This has all the abilities of the scatter mentioned above, but instead of multipliers, you will receive up to 100x your bet and ten free spins. At least 3 need to appear to trigger free spins, but the game will reward the same amount when 3, 4 or 5 appear. With the ten free games, you will also be rewarded higher winnings due to those being tripled. All scatters and wilds appear during the free spins and can be reactivated for yet another ten free spins.
Five Reel Circus provides an enjoyable game. There are a few places where improvements can take place, but overall it was a pleasant game experience. We found the free spins to be the most rewarding and reactivates easily. Our rating: 72/100
