Free Respin Circus slot
Please be patient, some games take longer to load than others!
Respin Circus slot by Elk Studios is odd in every way as you might expect with the showtime title, but nevertheless we get a pretty exciting game despite the rather juvenile appearance here. There are translucent reels lying over a purple big top background with some silly noises as we spin and as the name suggests, respin the reels. The fun and games of the circus is a favourite slot theme as we have seen especially from Microgaming with a few including Big Top and The Twisted Circus that are both decent games as is Play'n Go's Golden Ticket. Can we avoid this game clowning around with our bankroll though?
Respin Circus slot gives us a strange 64 paying lines over 6 reels of 4 rows each and we pay 20 coins to play. The 6-of-a-kind pays are 10x bet for the Cat Lady, 5x Monkey, 2.5x Mouse, 2x Cannon, 1.5x Bike, 1x Skittles with 4 card values paying from 14 down to 8 coins. There are Rabbit Wilds which can randomly expand to fill the reel and award a 2,3 or 4x multiplier to boot. Scatters also appear stacked like the other standard symbols and of course we need to know about the respins.
Quite simply, all winning combinations that appear will hold the winning symbols and award free respins until no further winning symbols are added. You tend to see the Wild Rabbit a bit more here too, so we have a base game like Barber Shop Uncut in essence. You can win some decent totals and get random symbol upgrades when the winning trigger is of the higher symbols to begin with.
These can be quite volatile and great fun with potential of around 2000x bet so Elk tell us. You get stacked scatters on the reels and therefore can get up to 24 for a full screen, although only 3 are necessary and you get one free spin per scatter. The free games work just like the base game but you will notice more upgrades and especially Wild Rabbit multipliers appearing. Big totals are not unusual here either!
Sometimes simple is best and Respin Circus slot is proof of this, a colourful and fun base game and bonus round with some big potential too. The RTP is 96.30% which is usual for Elk Studios' slots and somehow the graphics and animations makes up for a rather childish first appearance. I actually spent a good while testing the game and your bankroll will last a long session because although wins are less frequent due to the respins mechanic, the respins can take a fair old time to complete. I would certainly pay this show another visit without fear or apprehension, but then I don't have a clown phobia...
