Happy Circus Slots

I’m guessing that the creators of this slot thought that ‘far too Happy Circus’ was not quite the right name. If there is one thing that is hard to deny for this slot, it is the happiness. This starts with the ‘fun’ cartoon symbols, continues through the classic circus music and concludes with a bonus game set in the ring which involves a cannon. Like all Octopus Gaming titles, this is professional and smooth.

Circus themed games are by no means new in the online slot world - Twisted Circus by Microgaming has long been one of my favorites in the genre .

Happy Circus features a lion jumping through a hoop of fire, clowns, a magician pulling a rabbit out of a hat, trapeze artists, elephants and even a strong man aon the reels. The background is plain white, though there are different size ropes dividing the reels. Flashing (sequential) lights keep up the hectic feel to this game. There are minor animations when you hit a win (the clown wilds are worth seeing in particular). Music is a classic big top tune, with a different one during the bonus games. Happy Circus is quiet between spins, with the crazy circus music only appearing when you spin.

There are two main bonus games. First is your standard free spins round. Second is a pick-em type game set in the circus ring.

Classic Octopus Gaming Action

You’ll find a very standard 5 reel setup with 25 winning lines for this game. There is a wide range of coin sizes to choose from, ranging from 1c to $5. If you click the auto spin button on the reels, a new box pops up to let you choose how many spins to take. If the music or sound effects drive you too crazy, you can toggle these on or off in the settings section.

In many Octopus Gaming slots, there is one oversized winning combination. This game does things differently, with 2 fairly large wins instead. These are for the strong man, and the acrobat woman with a hoop on her legs. 5 of either will win you 3000 coins and both pay from just 2 of a kind. Lions jumping through hoops of fire are the symbol with the next biggest prize, which is 1500 for 5. The horse is worth 500 and the elephant 250. Playing cards have the supporting role, making up the smaller wins.

There are 3 irregular symbols to cover. The clown is the wild, this substitutes for all of the regular symbols covered above to make up wins. The bonus symbol is the magician; you need 3 of these from the first reel to trigger the bonus game. Finally, the big top is the scatter. This triggers free spins anywhere on the reels, 3 get you 10 spins, 4 get you 15 and 5 get you 20.

Happy Circus Bonus Rounds

You get a new header to the game (counting down your spins) and a different classic circus tune when you hit the free spins. This did seem a little slow, as it cycled through each win-line individually. You can retrigger, in which case the total spins simply goes up. After you finish you will get a screen showing your total wins to ‘ok’ before going back to the main game.

Magicians trigger a different bonus. You will see a cannon and a semi-circle of gifts in the circus ring. You choose gifts, and the cannon fires at them revealing an animal, performer or a balloon. If you get one with a cash prize, you keep firing, if you get a zero then your bonus round is over and you return to the next game. The amount you can win depends on how many magicians you get to trigger the game, with the top prize 8250 coins.

Big Top, Bigger Bankroll

If you're a fan of circus games, then you're bound to like this entertaining offering from Octopus Gaming. So roll on up to the big top, enter your money, and see if you can pull the jackpot out of a hat.
