The Circus is in Town With Circus Delight
Do you remember going to the circus as a child? If so, you will get to relive some of those memories with Circus Delight. It is the latest 5-Reel, 25-payline video pokie from PG Soft. The game features a fun circus theme with upbeat music and circus-themed symbols.
Paying symbols include Royals, clown shoes, juggling pins, a drum, a monkey playing symbols, and a female ringmaster. Symbols are a mix of low paying and higher-paying symbols. One thing that’s good about this game is that the higher paying symbols only require two on a payline to pay out.
The clown is the Wild for this game. He substitutes for every symbol except for the scatter. Wilds also have a separate payout for two or more on a payline. Also, any payouts including a wild have a 2x multiplier.
Free Spins Feature
The cannon is the scatter for this game. Get three or more scatters on board to trigger the free spins feature. At the start of the feature, there will be two sets of cannons. The first set of cannons are for free spins. Pick a cannon to be randomly awarded free spins. The number of potential spins is based on how many scatters triggered the feature. For three scatters, you will get 8, 12, or 20 free spins. For four scatters, you will get 12, 16, or 24 free spins. Get five scatters and pick 20, 24, or 32 free spins.
Next, you will get three cannons to pick your multiplier. Click one to get a multiplier of 2x, 5x, or 12x. All wins during the free spin feature will be multiplied by this amount.
Also, free spins can be won during the free spins feature. Land 3, 4, or 5 scatters to get 8, 12, or 20 additional spins.
This feature took a long time to trigger and was one of the most disappointing free spin features I’ve ever triggered. I was only able to get 8 free spins with a 2x multiplier. However, I didn’t win but on one spin. I won a grand total of $2 in the free spins feature. Unfortunately, I was never able to trigger it again.
Fun Concept But High Volatility
When I first spotted Circus Delight, I was intrigued due to the theme and the high 96.7% RTP. That’s much higher than the average online pokie. However, what I didn’t bank on is that the game has very high volatility. As such, I quickly found that players will down a ton of money in this game trying to chase some profits.
Granted, there were a few solid wins of $10 to $25, but nothing outstanding. Also, the free spins feature turned out to be a huge disappointment. Playing this game was like going to the circus expecting Ringling Bros and finding out that it was Uncle Harry’s Traveling Circus.
If you don’t mind high volatility, this game is worth giving a try because of the potential for big wins in the free games feature. For smaller stakes players, you’ll want to play something else.
