Cirque du Slots Slots

Cirque-du-SlotsCirque du Slots comes from Rival Gaming and it appears to be a slot machine with a circus theme. It’s got the right design for it, with multiple elements which are related to the world of circus, with some being performers, others being objects which they use to entertain people. The circus is an often chosen theme for slot machines, but there aren’t as many of them as are with other topics.

This beautiful circus themed game gets 5 reels and 25 bet lines. There are also wild symbols with different powers which apply at different moments in the game, along with free spins and scatters. The big prize of Cirque du Slots goes up to $4,500.

Features of Cirque du Slots

All the features provided by the game are mentioned on the paytable, and they include three acts that you go through, each one offering different types of free spins. The free spins get triggered with the help of scatters, and you will also find that the slot offers expanding wilds and multipliers.

The Green Girl gets the role of an expanding wild, the symbol which can fill all the positions of the reel when it appears. As wilds, these symbols can replace any other icons, the scatters being not on that list. Wilds also multiply prizes whenever they are part of a combination, tripling the value.

Next Act

First, let’s take a look at the Acts. Getting Unicycle symbols on the screen will bring you prizes and will let you advance to the next act. The prizes you get start at 2x the bet for three symbols, go to 5x for four and then to 25x the bet for five scatters.

Act 1, the one you start in, will have free spins which get wilds that expand horizontally when they appear, taking over an entire row.

Act 2 gets wild symbols which can go either horizontally or vertically, and which will apply a 2x multiplier to their wins.


Act 3 will provide you with wild symbols that don’t have multipliers, but which will expand both vertically and horizontally, so you get a bit of a cross like pattern of wilds during the rounds that have these symbols.

Free Games Feature

In order to take advantage of the various types of wilds which the three acts give you, you need to trigger the free spins first. You need 3+ Clown icons in scattered positions on the screen, and if this happens you will be given 7 free spins with the advantages afferent to the act you’re in.


In addition to the free spins, Clown scatters also give you prizes, from 3x the bet for three symbols, to 25x the bet for five.

Betting options and jackpots

To modify the bets you place in this game, use the buttons marked Select Lines (1 to 25 lines) and Select Coins (1 to 10 coins for each line). You can also modify the value of the coins, the maximum here being $0.25. Get everything to the highest setting, and you can spend $2.50 for one line, with $62.50 being the total for 25 lines.

Being lucky in this game means landing a combo of five Purple Jesters, which brings you a 600x payout, or $1,500. Be really lucky, and the Green Jester wild will triple that amount, to $4,500.

Design and symbols

The circus theme is very well done in this case. You have the stage curtain serving as the background image, with the reels being in front. Circus related images are part of some of the symbols, but not all of them. Many symbols are simple playing cards, though in a style that might be considered circus themed.
