Cirque Du Soleil Amaluna Slot Machine
Try Bally Technologies Slots
Based on a brick-and-mortar game by Bally, Cirque Du Soleil Amaluna is the newest slot by the developer. In fact, the slot has a predecessor, the Cirque Du Soleil Kooza, and they are both inspired by the world’s most famous circus acts. You will see that, fittingly to the theme, there will be a lot of action on the reels, plenty of features in the gameplay and a massive payout potential on offer.
The standard Wild against the female performer’s head mask substitutes for all symbols that appear in the base game, except for the Scattered symbols. The Scatter appears on all reels, however the Scattered Bonus on the middle reels only.
When you land 3 or more Scatters, you don’t activate Free Spins as usually, but you win one of the jackpot prizes above the reels. With 11+ Scatters you get the main prize of the slot, $250,000.00.
But, when you land 3 Scattered Bonus symbols, you trigger the Bonus Wheel feature. Even when you land 2 Bonus features, you may get rewarded with an extra Bonus symbol after the spin ends, which will appear as watermark and pay according to the payable. Nevertheless, in the Bonus Wheel feature, you get one spin for which you are rewarded with some of the following prizes:
- Cash Wheel – cash award from 5x to 60x the stake
- Respin and Win – cash prize of 5x to 125x the stake and a spin on the Respin and Win wheel that can reward you with any of the following features.
- Pick Bonus – pick from 12 feathers for a cash reward to collect it, or press the Level Up button to continue winning 8x, 15x, 30x, or 50x the stake prize
- Meteor Wilds Free Spins – 5 Free Spins where the Meteor becomes the Wild and appears on 4 to 12 positions
- Moon Goddess Free Spins – 7 Free Spins with 1x line Multiplier, Moon symbols appear on the middle reels, substitute for all symbols, give you additional prizes such as a line Multiplier of up to 10x, cash award from 5x to 62.5x the stake or 1, 2 or 3 extra Spins.
However, any base game spin where the Bonus Wheel feature is not triggered can reward you with the Mystery Wild feature where 4 to 12 positions on the reels may get randomly covered with a Mystery Wild symbol, which will substitute for all symbols except for the Scatter.
Theme & Design
The Scatter in the slot is the symbol presented with a performer's silhouette, the Bonus is presented with a peacock feather and the Wild with a performer's head mask. The highest-paying symbols are the two women, one dressed in blue the other one in pink. For the medium-value symbols, you get the face mask, the hand fan and the two flowers, one orange, the other one blue. For the lowest-paying symbols, you get the playing-card royals.
In the background, you see the woman in blue, the performer, on the left side of the reels, floating above the water. The line that should connect the sea and the sky is blurred, and you can see little bubbles coming out of the water. Considering the cirque act is inspired by The Tempest by William Shakespeare, it is only natural that the island governed by the goddesses is portrayed here. But there are many other references to the act included in the slot, so kudos to Bally for the design and presentation of the theme.
Wagering & Paylines
There are 40 paylines in Cirque Du Soleil Amaluna and a betting range that starts at $0.40 to $100.00. The RTP is the average one of 96.50%.
As for the payouts, the developer has capped the potential to $250,000.00 max. You get this payout by landing 11 or more Scatters on the reels. For 10 Scatters you get $75,000.00, for 9 $37,500.00. The number keeps going down for 8 or less Scatters. However, we must say that this payout of 2,500x the stake is quite attractive, one worth trying the game for.
Bally does not release slots very often, but when it does, it makes a real spectacle. Cirque Du Soleil Amaluna is proof of that. It offers highly engaging gameplay, filled with features that bring a lot of action to the slot and a lot of chances for you to grab a payout. The design and the implementation of the theme are exquisite, and the 2,500x the stake payout potential is amazing. Go for it, and try it.
