Circus of Horror Slot Machine
Try GameArt Slots
It doesn’t necessarily mean that it has to be Halloween for you to try a horror-themed slot, right? That’s what GameArt thought. The developer has released Circus of Horror, a 5 reel slot that you could play whenever you’re in for some horrific thrill. The slot is packed with special features, and amazing ones, too, which you can enjoy for some major payouts.
The Wild in the slot is the Chucky-looking scary Clown which substitutes for all symbols on the reels, except for the Bonus and Scatter symbols. The Wild can appear as a Sticky and Bloody Wild, too, but you will soon find out the details on how they can appear. The Bonus symbol is another horrifying character that looks like Marilyn Manson. 3 Bonus symbols trigger the Electric Chair bonus game, which can only be activated during the base game. This symbol can appear on the middle reels only. The Scatter is the demonic woman with pink hair. Land 3 to 5 Scatters and you will trigger 8, 12 or 15 Free Spins respectively, with a 3x Multiplier. The Free Spins can be retriggered.
The Electric Chair is a picking game where you need to select one of 9 body parts that you would like to electrocute. You can keep on selecting until one of the eight buttons fails to electrocute. In case you manage to press all of them, you get a 2x Multiplier added to your wins.
The Sticky Wild appears randomly in the base game, and this is the symbol where the Wild Clown has a knife in his face.
During the Free Spins, on the other hand, the Bloody Wild will randomly appear, which is essentially a Stacked Wild, so you get to see the Clown spread on the whole 3rd reel, making all the symbols a Wild.
Theme & Design
As you load the game, you will see a circus in the background that looks creepy and bloody. The red colour is the dominant colour on the reels. Other than the Chucky-style clown, the Marilyn Manson-looking character and the scary girl with pink hair, you will also see a demon with black horns on his head, a devilish nurse with a syringe in her hand, a guy in a cage and a walking zombie-inspired skeleton. There are also playing card royals that are fitted to the theme, with blood stains all over them. The reel view really gives you the creeps, so the developer has succeeded in setting the horror tone for this slot.
Wagering & Paylines
The game offers 243 ways to win, where the betting starts at $0.50 and can go up to $50.00. The RTP is capped at 96.68%.
Payout-wise, the Nurse symbol is the highest one which for 5-of-a-kind will give you $1,000.00. That’s not that impressive, but if you take in consideration the Free Spins and the Multiplier attached to them, then the 2x Multiplier from the Electric Chair bonus game, all the Wilds, Sticky and Bloody Wilds, the wins can significantly improve. On top of that, you can also use the Gamble feature and further double your winnings.
Circus of Horror is a real masterpiece and GameArt did more than a great job with it. If you’re into horror-themed slots, you will really enjoy playing this game, because everything, from symbols to special features, is really fittingly implemented. The payouts can get to a major sum, and the RTP is a little bit above the average. If you still haven’t tried it, make sure you do so.
