The Grand Circus, one of the many circus-themed games from Microgaming, and one with presentably good graphics for its age. Nope, this isn't a new game. It's been around for many years, but it still looks acceptable by today's standards. Or maybe I'm just nuts about nice cartoon drawings. Hmm, but nice drawings are no measure of the game's performance, not by any chance.

The Grand Circus game has no Wild symbols. Argh! The words 'The Circus' is the Scatter symbol, paying 100x the total bet for 5 of them appearing consecutively on any payline, and not paid in the usual scattered manner. Another argh! Getting 3 or more of them trigger the Bonus Feature, with a chance to win up to 20 free spins, or a cash prize. In the Free Spins game, 5 Scatters pay 250x the total bet instead of the 100x. More free spins cannot be retriggered. The logo 'The Grand Circus' is a normal symbol, the highest paying symbol, but paying 50x the total bet for 5 of them appearing adjacently on the reels, as scatters. What an uncalled-for-twist in the usual manners for paying the Scatters and the highest paying symbol. Sheesh! Moreover, 'The Grand Circus' symbol looks almost the same as 'The Circus' Scatter symbol, adding more confusion to the game! Nope, I don't like this at all. I got confused many times whilst playing the game!

If that's bad enough, there's more. The Master of Ceremony, or MC, is also a Scatter symbol, paying also 50x the total bet for 5 of them, and also for appearing adjacently on the reels too. Nope, this is a dumb MC symbol. It does nothing else special. As for the other symbols in the game, a combination of the MC+Logo (The Grand Circus) pays 500x the line bet for 5 of them, and the rest pay from 300x to 100x the line bet for 5 of each kind. A very low paytable, especially for a 20-paylines game!
Even before playing this game for the first time, I was also down in my mood after seeing all those damn low values and the missing Wild symbols. I wasn't interested to play it at all, but I had to, just for once at least. The first thing that I got, were empty spins, spin after spin, typically of most Microgaming games that I had played. The first Free Spins game came nearly 200 spins later, but luckily it paid a decent 59x my bet. Then back to those blardy empty spins, until the second Free Spins game came, but paid only 27x my bet amount. That was it. I was already fuming up, so I quit playing the game immediately. Microgaming games tend to fume me up very very quickly, unlike any other games I have ever played! Really amazing!

The Grand Circus is a slot that is powered by Microgaming software. There are some regular and some special symbols on this slot which is with 5 reels and 20 pay lines. I personally do not fancy slots that use circus as its theme, and I hate seeing all those animals trapped on the reels. On the other hand I like the game because there are free spins and a bonus game too. I played this game more than once, and I do not believe that this is a very popular slot. I like spending time on games that are more popular and I am familiar with them. This slot has some unique symbols such as the cage, the clown car, the juggler, the donkey and the lion.

This game is also unique because it has 3 different scatter symbols and they are the Grand Circus, the Ring Master and the Circus symbol. If you are lucky to land 3 or more Grand Circus and Ring Master symbols you can get x2, x5 and x 100 multipliers. If you land 3 or more Circus symbols you will get x5, x 15 and x 100 multipliers respectively.

This game is interesting because it is not that simple and there are some things that are unique about it. For instance, if you get 3 or more Circus symbols and the first symbol is on the first reel you can activate the Pick a Bear Bonus or the free spins feature. The first bonus offers you 6 bears from which you have to choose 3 to get random prizes. While, the free spins bonus offers you 20 free spins with a multiplier. The free spins feature can be retriggered too. When I played this game I got the free spins bonus and I managed to retrigger the same bonus even twice, which was amazing. That is probably the main reason I will play this slot again.
The Grand Circus video slot it is Microgaming game, which is not new, and which I am tried recently. I am quite surprised with how much old Microgaming games have, and also I am surprised that apart from my expectations - not all old games are same / almost same. Of course a lot of very similar, but sometimes I saw absolutely different games, like this one for example.

Game looks a bit old, but it does not make me feel bad or think badly about this slot game. Just not such modern game like I see almost every day when playing new releases by Microgaming and Netent. Also there is 20 paylines.

Base game here is not interesting at all, really. There are no wilds, and payouts for most symbols are not very big. Also the way you need to trigger feature can put you on absolute rage - you need scatters from left to right. Yes, I am not big fan when feature is triggered like this, because it is always a lot of headache for me. Praying to get scatters from left to right - not my favorite job during gambling, really. And like I said payouts are like 5-15 x total bet during base game, at least for my 100 spins I do not see anything better.

Feature is triggered by 3 or more scatters from left to right like I said. It is pick bonus game; you can choose 3 bears from 6. You could get freespins, or just money award. I got 15 freespins, and interesting thing that during freespins payouts for scatters wins are awesome! 50x total bet for 3, 100 x bet for 4, and 250 x for 4. I get during feature 2 times 3 scatters and my win was more than 100x total bet. Just awesome. I am will play this game again, because during freespins you could expect awesome big results and prizes.
Hm, and again it is hard to list something here for this slot game.

The Grand Circus is a 20 Paylines Microgaming video slot I like especially when played at 32red casino and Allslots! It is the recalling of hitting 5 left to right circus tents for an $0.80 bet that made a super great impression to me as well as hitting the bonus round! The great news of triggering the bonus is that it pays so gravely for some reason especially when triggering 5 scattered circus tents. It could be this reason that there have been small prizes in the bonus for triggering 3 left to right tents. That gets me wondering for a while. 3 scatters for small prizes and 5 scatters with somehow ridiculously very high prizes! It's amazing what this video slot can provide!

The bonus round is basically a scene of 6 bears on bikes, 3 each on two balance lines. 3 picks are awarded where the clown gets shot out of a cannon to appear on the chosen bear...then...the prize appears for that pick! My biggest advice is to play this video slot by playing the autoplay buttons.....the 5x, 10x as well as the common spin button. It somehow changes the first reel which might influence change in the outcome....but even as each spin can be generated randomly I just feel that it might be of use to you players.

There is something of greater value to that of the free spins! It's mainly one of the best especially when the Free spins are from a starting 20 Free spins position! It is because the circus scatters now have a larger win structure capable of paying out at least 50x on 3 left to right circus scatters. I can really imagine just seeing my 5 scatters during free spins. My total of $80 would have been a victorious $200!! Ahhh!!! The thought alone and the difference between the two amounts......well....I'm just satisfied by $80 and also I'm much happy already for hitting 5 scatters!
I just don't like the way this game pays in the base game! It's seems very low for a nice circus video slot! About less than $0.40 for 2 bears on bikes or 2 elephants. There's not much room for chance to land the ringmasters and I've only hit 3 of them...mixed in with the logos.
Hello to all gamblers. Today i am going to write a review on 'The Grand Circus' game powered by microgaming. What a stupid game? Seriously every time i have €10 or less i open this game and lose the rest of my cash. I have been fooled by the sight of bonuses. They are everywhere except in the right positions to get the bonus. My favorite is getting four bonuses starting from the second reel. Even when i do get the bonus it s never free spins, always damn bears on bicycles. Its not that i hate this game, i just think its stupid. The drawings are childish and the music is just awful. I tried to play this game on low bets and the wins were very small. Then i tried this game on €1 bet and got no wins at all. It could be just me being so unlucky on this game, but i honestly don't see anyone playing this game and having fun. I must admit that the wins are pretty decent and you could win a lot on free spins but i never got them so i would not know.
For those who never played this game i would say, well done you are smarter than me. For those who have played this game and won i would say , well done you are luckier than me. Would i recommend this game to anyone? Hell no:)
Over all the game is very disappointing. I honestly don't know why i play this game. I guess its a bad habit like smoking:) If i was to rate this game based on my personal experience i would give it 2 out of 10 and thats me being generous.This game is the one to avoid in my view, Hope you enjoyed my review and have a nice day:)
