Okay, here we go with another circus-themed game from MC. No, no, I said MC, not MG, but they are the same thing. MG is Microgaming, we all know that. MC is Master of Clones, not many know that. Hahaha. Yeah, this The Twisted Circus game is yet another clone from the MC. Not that I like to play it, or any of the cloned games, but it's something that I have to do nonetheless. It plays with the ever popular 243 ways to win, but it probably means 243 ways you could lose, and maybe only 7 ways you could win. Does that make sense to you? Nope, it doesn't to me. For me personally, it's probably like 7,776 ways to lose! Out of several thousands of separate playing on Microgaming games, my wins are only a handful and can be counted, but I'm not bothered to count them. Too little!

Anyway, 'The Twisted Circus' logo is the Wild symbol in the game, paying a very low 25x the total bet for getting 5 of them. It triples all wins with it and substitutes for other symbols except the Scatter and the Bonus symbols. Getting 5 of the Scatter symbols pay the usual 100x total bet amount, and getting 3 or more of the Scatters trigger 13 free spins with all wins tripled. The Bonus Feature can be triggered during the free spins but its wins are not tripled. The Free Spins game can be retriggered too. The MC, nope, not the Master of Clones, but the Master of Ceremony, is the Bonus symbol, but it sure is a dumb one. It doesn't pay anything for itself. Getting all 3 of them triggers the Circus Match Bonus, whereby match any 3 symbols and win the corresponding prize. I have never liked this symbols matching game, but it is slightly better than the single 'Pick Me' feature, which always tend to pay me the lowest prize.

There are 4 hidden 'Wild' symbols in the items to be picked, to make sure that you would end up matching 3 same symbols quickly, thereby missing out on matching 2 or more other same symbols at the same time. Yes, it is a possibility to win 2 or more prizes at one go, but I got it only once out of tens of attempts, and the 2 prizes that I won were the lowest 2 prizes. What the argh! The paytable indicates 'win up to $8400' on maximum bet, or 70x the total bet amount, but don't count on getting it easily. Before I forget, the other symbols in the game pay from 5x to 2.3x the total bet for getting 5 of each kind. What the argh! A very low paytable, typically associated with 243-ways games.


What I dislike most about The Twisted Circus game is that the Bonus games would come more times than the Free Spins games, yet both games would pay out poorly. Over several plays on this game, the Bonus features paid me from 15x up to 37x the total bet amount, whilst the lesser Free Spins games paid me from 7x up to 36x, lesser than what the Bonus features paid. The irritating thing is that the Wild symbols hardly appear at all during the free spins, so how to win more? Another very disappointing game for me.

The Twisted Circus is 5 reels and 243 ways to win video slot game, which means you need at least 3 matching symbols from left to right to win something. The bonus symbol on the third, fourth and fifth reel triggers the bonus round. This makes it a bit difficult. But when I played this game, even after 100 spins my balance was still the same. I have not win anything but the good thing is that I have not lost anything either. I got some good 5 of a kind wins in a combination with a wild.

I had a really long session but I could not trigger the free spins or the bonus round, luckily I had some decent amount on my balance so I could continue playing.
The bonus round is very short. On the left side you can see that the Wild is worth 6300 coins, the fire breather 2250 coins, the snake lady 1800 coins, the strong man 1350 coins and the Siamese twins only 900 coins. There are 16 stars and you need to start picking stars until you find 3 matching ones. I got 36 euros for 2 wilds, one strong man and a fire breather the first time I triggered this bonus. The next time I triggered the bonus round the fire breather paid me only 22.50. At this point I have lost only 9 euros and I have played the game for more than 2 hours.

Now I had to see how much he free spins could pay. Unfortunately I could not trigger this feature. You need 3 scatter symbols anywhere on the reels to get 13 free spins with tripled wins. I was always missing that third scatter. I have opened the bonus round many times while I played, but I did want to experience the free spins round too. Maybe next time I play this game I will.

The Twisted Circus is a video slot game with 243 pay-lines, which is designed in Microgaming. This game is already several years on the Microgaming casino offer but I have not played it so often, although I love games with a similar theme. I have a feeling that the designers in Microgaming have spent a lot of effort here – the symbols look good, the sound that can be heard while playing is okay but again, I do not like the overall design of the game too much.

Mostly because of the selection of colors that are quite dark here. From the features, Twisted Circus offers a classical bonus and the free spins feature. The bonus round here is called "Circus Match Bonus". You will get to this bonus with 3 bonus symbols on the last three reels. This bonus is some combination of pick up bonus and a scratch game. The free spins here can be reached in the usual way with 3 or more scatter symbols. You get 13 free spins with a 3x multiplier. The free spins can be re-triggered and the interesting thing is that during the free spins you can get to the Circus Match Bonus but the bonus is not multiplied by the free spins multiplier.

When it comes to my experience with this game, I can’t remember that I have ever played it for real money. However a few days ago I had the chance to play it at a Microgaming Slot Tournament. I had 10 minutes to play. For these 10 minutes I came to the free spins and also to the bonus feature. As for the initial 10 minutes I have made a good result, I paid another 5 times by 3 euros, to continue to play 5 times in the tournament. Total, for 15 euros as much I spent on the tournament, in the end I won 100 euros because I have finished the tournament on the third place. All in all, The Twisted Circus will get a positive rating from me and that would be 6 out of 10 possible stars.
