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.

The twisted circus is game made by Microgaming, and it is really decent slot with high payouts. Pretty good payouts for game like this.

I like theme. A lot. I was in circus recently, so after I came back I start playing this slot even more frequent. Circus sent me in childhood, lot of feelings, good emotions.

I like payouts. Payouts here is awesome and probably biggest I ever saw in 243 lines game. Best paying symbol 5 of a kind pays about 80 or 70 bets. And the thing is that wild if substitute multiply winnings by 3. It is already more than 200 bets during normal play in games with all pay ways and without stacked wild. Remind me any other slot with such payouts if you know please.

I like bonus game. It is does not contain outstanding huge payouts, but could pay in best cases something like 100 bets. It is triggered when 3 scatters appear anywhere on reels. Scatters with bonus logo I mean, because there is also different scatters in this game. Bonus game is simple you need to match symbols. Wild can match any other symbol, pretty obvious.

I like freespins feature. For 3 or more scatters anywhere on reels game award with 13 freespins and during freespins all wins are tripled. Just one best 5 of a kind with wild and you in the money. Just one. Had once x 200 total bet feature, few low paying 5 of a kinds produce this wins. But it could be better and i still want to play this game. Normal play rare pay good and better to wait feature. I with easy heart rate this game with 10 stars.

And for sure for such great payout potential you paying with some chance to get your money stolen very fast. But it is ok, it is gamble and it is impossible hit withdraw button each time.


Nothing to thumbs down, I can not imagine anything bad I could say about this game.

The Twisted Circus is 243 paylines video slot which came from Microgaming software. I played it a few times, after I had some good winnings on other games from this software and my balance was on higher amount.

First when I opened the game, I heard great sounds. I liked the circus music while I was playing. At the beginning I started to play with minimum stakes 0,30€. This game has 2 features; bonus and free spins. During free spins the winnings are tripled. I received circus match bonus at least twice. I expected more from this bonus, I won around 10€ both times.

I triggered free spins feature only once and they paid better than the bonus. After that I played The Twisted Circus for some time but I couldn't get more free spins feature, only bonus which I don't liked it. I think the game could offer more. Maybe stacked wilds on all reels during main game, like many other games with 243 paylines offer or better bonus feature. Otherwise the graphics is good; the quick spin button is there so you can play it in fast mode.

The twisted circus icon is wild and when it appears during game you should expect bigger wins. I received it couple of times. What is interesting in that video slot is that 5 scatters pay 30 000x bet. This is so huge, I cannot imagine hitting it. And even 4 of them pay very high, 3000x bet.

Well even if I don't like bonus rounds here at this game, when I played it I had some profit on it. Later I decided to try some other game and I closed this one. I don't know if I will play this game in the future, because I have better games to choice from this software.

The Twisted Circus it is Microgaming slot game, and I played it couple of times. It is quite unusual game for Microgaming; because usually they do their 243 lines game quite same, without only few difference, but this game is different.

Game looks amazing, I do like sounds, animations, and also I do like idea with circus, paying symbols are great one, and it is interesting to play game and see animation for symbols. Like I said, there is 243 paylines.

There is wilds appearing on all reels, but they do not stacked, never expand. This is first not very often thing for Microgaming 243 lines game. Also quite unusual and something that I like - multiplier for wilds here is very nice - x 3, this gives really good boost to winnings at 243 lines game, and make wilds absolutely not useless(something what no one like I believe - when wilds are useless).

There is possible to trigger two different features. First one it is freespins feature - when 3 or more scatters appear you will be awarded with 13 freegames with x 3 multiplier. So wins with wilds will have x 9 wins, not so bad I guess. Freespins feature is not very often, I think probably once in 100-15 spins I get it at average.

Second feature is bonus game; it is not interesting for me. You pick symbols, and you should match 3 same and get award. There can appear wild and substitute for couple of symbols, but payouts are quite low for most symbols, so it is hard to wait decent win there.

I had 2-3 freespins feature which paid me more than 100 x total bet (in total I have probably 10 features). I never win even x 50 total bet during bonus game. This is interesting slot, but it quickly annoys me, so I am usually play it just before freespins feature, and then leave it.


Bonus game is absolutely not interesting and after playing it couple of times I am tired of slot at all.

The Twisted Circus is a 243 payline, 5 reel slot game from Microgaming and the first thing I have to say about this game is WOW! It is easily one of the best looking slot games I have ever played, in a lot of ways it looks similar to the standard Microgaming setup but I dont know if its the combination of colours or what exactly but I just loved it! Even each of the symbols on the reels seemed to be so different and artistic compared to what is seen more often than not in slot games.

As for the game itself it has two bonus features but in my time playing I only managed to get one of these. I landed three scatters after a hundred or so spins to get thirteen free spins in which I firstly managed to retrigger a further 13 free spins and at the end my winnings were multiplied by three and for a small bet I was delighted!

I never varied from a small bet my entire time playing this game and that is partly based on the time of night spent playing this and partly down to how much entertainment I was getting from the minimum bet and with the game being so easy on the eyes I was in no rush to another game.

All things considered about The Twisted Circus I am going to have to give it a rating of 7/10 and I would easily give this a higher rating if the bonus features made a few more appearances because all other aspects of this game are perfect for me.


I spent a good share of time playing this game and while I did manage to get my fair share of winnings the bonus features are just too rare.

The Twisted Circus it is newest microgaming game which was released somewhere in 2013 year, and i think it is another one failed game from microgaming, since i am really think that almost no one playing this game these days, it is simply not interesting, but probably i am wrong, prove me that it is great game and i will apologize, but till that read my review.

This game has 243 paylines, and therefore minimum bet here is typical to many others 243 liners - 0.3. this is good min bet and i think everyone can allow himself to play with such bet.Great thing that wilds appear on all reels here, but with that great thing about wilds is end. 5 of a kind wilds in 243 lines game here pay less than 30 x total bet, and i really think it is total joke, not payout. Only 5 scatters pay 100 x total bet, and this way you can earn biggest payout here.

Free spins is not interesting, since you get 13 free spins with x 3 multiplier, looks good, yes, but with not such bad payouts for all symbols, if only 5 scatters will land during free spins, than you get biggest possible win in one spin here, 300 x total bet. Funny for 243 lines game, no? I tried this game only once, at 32red, when it was just released. I like 243 liners and was expecting really lot of fun and nice experience, but i lost my 30$ deposit with 0.30 bets within 15 minutes, and swear to myself that i will not touch this game again. Yes, i did not like such game, which simply eat your money and did not give chances to win more than 1000 x total bet.

Low variance 243 lines game already sounds like a joke. Game looks great, but win big here is impossible, and i will not open this game again, it is boring and useless for me.

The Twisted Circus grasps in it's hands 243 ways to win meaning there aren't any small talk for limited paylines! The neat part about it is to match identical symbols left to right in order to win combinations, it doesn't matter where the symbols appear on the reels so long as they are in a row reel to reel except for scatters.

This circus themed video slot says many things! It incredibly gave me 4 fire eaters plus a wild that tripled my total 5 combination win for a searing $50+ win for a 3 coin bet (Sorry, I can't remember how much exactly)!!! Can you believe this because I can't believe it! It was like a fancy dinner followed by (slowly saying the last word) "Dessert" ;) ! OMG, if this happened towards free spins then I'll probably pass out momentarily from seeing a better, much huge looking win...if only I had triggered it with 3 tickets!! Hot dang! The bonus seems to also be a nice payout because it created matches from my 3 picks. I found that picking Wilds gives greater results! Ohh I can't wait for a screenshot of getting all 3 Wilds in that bonus because it will ultimately pay everything.....everything that the circus owns HAHAHAHAHA!!!! I always get the Snake Lady or the Fire Breather in most of my triggers...sometimes the Snake Lady with the Strong Man! It's recommended to find the Wild at all costs in this all out pick and match feature!

Great appealing graphics, no paylines of a mess when playing Twisted Circus and features had there way with me..at least....for my $0.90 bets!


I know it's worth hitting the bonus round but do they have to make teaser rounds by making me see 2 scattered Ringmasters on the 3rd and 4th reel with no availing final scatter on the last reel? I guess that's the nature of slots! Although in the base game I did initially discover to get no wins for a long time before having to set the stage for large winnings...it took long but it became worth it later!

The Twisted Circus is powered by microgaming. Another cool 30 lines game with 243 lines paid. Mixed feelings about this game. One day it pays out and everything is great, the next day there is no sign of the bonus or free spins. The graphics are really good and the theme is pretty cool too.

The music is not my cup of tea so i usually play my own music in the background. There are two features in this game. The bonus is awarded to the player when he gets three bonus symbols on the last three reels. I got them a lot of times by double tapping, so i would recommend to try that. Once you get the bonus you will have to pick stars to reveal symbols. Match three symbols and win that price. There are wilds hidden, so if you pick different symbols with wilds you will be awarded all of the symbols.

The free spins feature is awarded when three or more scatters come out. The player is awarded with 13 free spins with all wins tripled. The free spins can be re-triggered and bonus can be triggered in the free spins. Max i ever got on the free spins was around €65 on a €0.60 bet. Cant really say that i like this game because it doesn't excite me or entertain me. The only times that i play this games is when i tried all the games i liked first.

I never got a big win on this game and don't think i ever would. If i was to rate this game i would give it 5 out of 10. Hope you enjoyed my review and have a nice day:)
