Roll up, roll up! Microgaming are bringing the circus to town (and Wombat Casino), which is very kind of them! Think snake charmers, elephants on tight ropes, tigers with top hats and clowns. A few of them look like they’ve just escaped from the laboratory- just some all-round old-fashioned entertainment.
I used to love the circus as a mini-wombat, until they popped me on a trapeze and asked me to swing that is. Anyway, enough about me, let’s take a look at the game…
Look and Feel
You’ll find colourful animated graphics and cartoon characters in Big Top slot that take us back to our childhood days. Friendly tigers, cheeky monkeys and cheerful clowns are just a few of the game’s icons. Microgaming have a great line-up of toon games- the Stash of the Titans slot is another great example.
The soundtrack bursts into life with raucous xylophones ringing out while you spin, and turns into the general hubbub of the circus when you scoop a win on a payline!
Big Top Game Play
The Big Top slot has 5 reels, 3 rows and 9 pay-lines.
The Big Top logo has the highest value of all symbols on the reels, followed by the Ringmaster Lion, the Elephant on a tricycle, the ball-juggling Seal, and your low value 10, J, Q, K & A playing card symbols that complete the reels.
The Clown is the Wild in this game and will substitute for all other icons on the reels to complete your winning combos. Landing 5x of these will also give you the top jackpot payout of 5000 coins. The Scatter symbol in the slot is the Cheeky Little Monkey in the tiny hat. If you land 3x, 4x or 5x of them scattered anywhere across the reels you’ll scoop a multiplier of x2, x10 or x50, respectively. Hurrah and huzzah!
Speaking of bets, Big Top slot is also pretty flexible when it comes to wager levels; the minimum bet is 0.25 per line and the maximum is 5.00 per line. Be careful to adjust your paylines accordingly Wombat Fans.
There are no Bonuses or Free Spins in the game, which makes us a bit sad, but there is heaps of action on the reels, plus the chance to win some decent payouts from Wilds and Scatters – which makes up for it.
This is one of the most basic Microgaming slots we’ve seen, but it’s easy to play which makes it popular.
Big Top slot on mobile
Like to spin on the hop? Then try this circus-themed slot on iPhone, iPad, Android and other tablet and mobile devices. The graphics are just as good as the desktop version, in fact, because it’s so simple, we think Big Top slot almost plays better on mobile devices. Plus the graphics really stand out on the HD screen of our tablets.
Big Top slot is a no-fuss basic game, lacking in bonus features like Free Spins. Instead, the game makes use of standard wilds and scatters and this wombat really did enjoy the circus theme! It’s not the best slot we’ve played, and we think it might be best suited to slot novices but if you’re looking for an easy way to win, get spinning.
