Big Top Slot Microgaming

Big Top is a circus-themed 9-payline video slot which operates on the Microgaming software platform. The game’s wild card is the Wild Clown symbol, which only appears on reels 2, 3 and 4. The game’s scatter is the Scatter Monkey symbol. Players are invited to test the slot on this page free of charge or visit any of the listed Microgaming to play the game for real money.

In order to spin the colourful reels, players need to adjust their wager first. “Select Lines” chooses the number of paylines played and -/+ fixes the coin size, ranging from 0.01 up to 100. “Spin” initiates the game and “Bet Max” spins the reels at the maximum bet. Pressing “Expert” and then “Au­top­lay­” will turn the reels a number of times without any interruption.

A jackpot of 5,000 coins will be awarded when 5 Big Top Logo symbols emerge on an activated payline.

Big Top has a circus theme, with clowns, monkey, elephants and seals doing their tricks. Microgaming, on the other hand, is playing dirty tricks on us players! Why? Because you have to play the game with a minimum bet of $2.25 per spin! What the aargh is all this? Is Big Top meant only for Big Shots to play, and never meant for us scavenging workers? What a lousy deal indeed!

This old game plays with just 9 paylines, but each line costs $0.25 per spin, absurdly way too high for most players. But for those who can afford a starting bankroll of a few hundreds, this game can be quite profitable! The Wild symbol is a dumb symbol. No pay, no nothing, just to substitute. The Monkey is the Scatter symbol, paying 50x the total bet for 5 of them. The Logo 'Big Top' is the highest paying symbol at 5000x the line bet for 5 of them, with the rest paying from 600x down to 100x the line bet. Not so bad actually, except for the non-paying Wild and the low-paying Scatter symbols.

For a circus themed game, expect to be entertained by the clowns and the animals only. There aren't any Free Spins game. There aren't any Bonus game. There aren't any randomly activated feature game either. So, laugh with the clown, or cry with the baby! You either make it good and enjoy the show, or go back home barefooted, so to speak, hehehe.

For such an expensive game to play, I have played this Big Top game only once using my deposited money, but played it many times with the casino's fun money. I ain't gonna let no monkey steal my wallet whilst I'm happily laughing away at the clowns! Nosirree! So, how was it? The game, or the monkey? The game wasn't any good, but wasn't too bad either. My small balance kept going up and down a few times. The monkey, that rascal little monkey, it scattered away with my deposited money, but luckily not with my wallet! Yep, I chained my wallet to my belt! Hahaha.


Personally, I think Microgaming made a gross mistake by starting with such a high minimum bet per spin. This game could have been more fun and popular playing with the usual small minimum bets, because the chances of making mediocre profits are quite good. I wouldn't dare say big profits, because the Wilds are literally too dumb to assist!

Big Top Slot is another interesting game coming from Microgaming software. Again, this is another non progressive jackpot game. This game has only 5 reels and 9 pay lines and the main theme here is the circus. What I found interesting with this game is that the minimum bet is really high 2.25 euros for a spin. Now you know that I did not spend a lot of time playing this slot. I do not want to spend my hard earned money on a game that I am not familiar with and I do not know how it will react. Good thing is that this game has not got any special features so you do not have to chase it. I played only 50 spins, I was 10 euros in plus when I decided to leave this game though. Probably I was not prepared for risks and surprises at that moment.

Some of the symbols of this game include clowns, monkeys, elephants on bikes, performing seals. Of course, I believe that there is no game, or older slot without the boring card symbols that go from 10 through K in this game. The wild in this game is the clown with the word wild written on it, and it can replace all symbols to make a winning combination. There is a regular clown symbol in this game so do not be confused. The scatter symbol is the monkey. It does not trigger any feature but for 3, 4 or 5 scatters you get 2, 10 or 50 respectively.


All in all, I must say that this game is still uncharted territory for me. I did not spend enough time on it to see if it is good or not. I did not give it a chance but I will for sure run into it again and see for myself, make some spins and hopefully earn some cash on it.

Big Top Slot I discovered for myself couple weeks ago. Well, I should say that better I never touch this game, does not worth of my attention at all.

Game looks old. Really, usually in my other reviews I am saying 'game is old, but it's ok, it looks not bad'. But this one probably even older than old and looks absolutely not interesting. There is also 9 paylines.

When I checked paytable - well, I decide to close this game. Absolutely not interesting, and I do not know who will wish to play this game. But since I opened it, downloaded, I decide that I play it 100 spins. First of all, we have only base game. Yes, no any feature at this slot, this is just not interesting. Wilds presented, appear on all reels, but do not have payout itself, and also do not have anything special, even do not have multiplier. So what the point of such wilds? Really do not know. Like I said, there is no features, no freespins, no bonus games, just nothing happens, you spin - you get result, nothing to wait, nothing to expect. I was also surprised that there are scatters! Scatters pay on any position, like usual, but do not start any feature. Also 5 scatters according to paytable pay only 50x total bet, which is extremely low.

Okay, I put game on 100 autospins, with 0.45 bets. I thought that game like this unlikely it a lot of money. During 100 spins I lost around 20$...Just stupid, no big wins, nothing, I am generally burn my 20$ without chances to get it back. Did I like this slot? - No, no, never. Will I play this slot again? - No chance, even if I open game by mistake, I will not be fooled again and play any spins on it.


Low payouts, nothing interesting, game looks bad :(
