Making a bet
Making a wager in Merkur's World of Circus could not be any easier. All ten paylines are fixed, so you just need to hit the coin button in the lower left-hand corner of the screen to choose an overall stake of £0.10 to £100; alternatively, simply hit max bet. That's all there is to it! You can autospin up to 100 in increments of ten, or take each spin as it comes.
This game has a pleasing circus theme that runs throughout. The reels are found within the big top and include a number of relevant symbols. These start with the familiar J, Q, K and A and progress to include juggling batons, a top hat, a lion, an elephant and - of course - the ringmaster.
The wild is easy to spot, with the word ‘wild’ written across it in red. This substitutes for all other symbols except the scatter symbol. The scatter bonus symbol is what you are seriously looking out for, as it triggers free games when it appears three or more times. Three scatters anywhere on the reels will award you five free spins, four scatters award 10 free spins, and five or more scatters will earn you a lovely 20 free spins. This is not all, as two reels will be left containing only wilds during the free spins!
This game features the double gamble option that this developer has become famous for. After every base game win, high-tempo, tense music will kick in as you decide whether to collect or gamble. Choose the straightforward Card Colour Gamble and pick red or black for the next card to either double your winnings or lose it all; alternatively, choose the Gamble Ladder and then hit 1:1 to see the amount you win rise or fall - double or nothing - all the way. If it rises, choose to double it again; in fact, go all the way to the top of ladder - if you don't lose it all first! You can collect at any time.
In both these features you can gamble just half your winnings; in the ladder feature, you can even collect half at any point and continue to gamble the rest. To suggest that World of Circus is a particularity complex or groundbreaking free slots game would certainly be an exaggeration; instead, it is a simple, easy to play, low risk game with two exciting gamble features.
