5 Reel Circus

The circus stakes its success on providing audiences with loads of fun and entertainment. Given that Rival Gaming's 5 Reel Circus slots is also quite entertaining, it does a good job of conveying what makes an actual circus work. One aspect that you'll immediately notice about 5 Reel Circus is the carnival-type music, clapping and sounds of laughter as you play. This all combines to create a nostalgic effect that makes you feel like you're actually at a circus. The graphics, while not what we'd see in today's 3D slots, also do a good job of setting the atmosphere. Let's continue discussing what makes 5 Reel Circus slots unique, from its theme to special features.

Bearded Ladies, Bicycling Bears and Crazy Clowns

Again, this game is all about putting you in the carnival mood as you spin the reels. So it's little surprise that symbols include elephants doing balancing acts, seals twirling rubber balls, contortionists, bearded ladies, clowns, cannon men, ringmasters and bears riding bicycles.

The tiger is the wild symbol, substituting for all other symbols expect the scatter. The tiger also pays the most, delivering you 7,500 coins if you land five of these beasts in a payline. Two clowns in front of a carousel represent the scatter symbol, multiplying wins from 1x to 100x. When you get at least two of these symbols anywhere on the reels, you'll hear a clown nose honk while your winning combinations increase greatly.

5 Reel Circus Features - Free Spins Galore

The one big feature that you'll find in 5 Reel Circus is free spins. Get at least 3 of the two-clown scatter symbols anywhere on the reels, and you'll be awarded 10 free spins. What's really nice about these spins is that all wins are multiplied by 3x. This can really pay off if you're able to get multiple tigers in a payline!

As for the betting/payline features, you can change the coin size from $0.01-$1.00, paylines from 1-15, and put 1-5 coins on each payline. If you select "Bet Max," you'll be wagering $75.00 per spin. Fortunately, low rollers can also enjoy this game because the minimum bet is only one cent.

Always Good for a Few Thrills

In comparison to modern slots, which are loaded with special features and bonus games, 5 Reel Circus may not hold your attention for hours. However, it's definitely worth making a few dozen spins on this game, especially if you loved the circus as a child!
