Roll up, roll up Wombats for a circus experience like no other. We heading into ELK Studios’ crazy world of the Respin Circus slot to discover a big top overrun with cash-conjuring animals. In other words, it’s an average day here in Wombat Towers, mate!
Get ready for re-spins with sticky symbols and a stonking great Free Spins game. And did I mention the rabbit that gives you Multipliers and Stacked Reels? Prepare to cheer for the biggest show in town. The snappily dressed bloke in the Balthazar’s Wild Carnival slot would fit in well here- that’s another game to try if you like your circus slots.
Look and Feel
ELK Studios have developed a reputation for making good looking games so the glitzy looking, high-end Respins Circus slot is no surprise.
The game is an explosion of swank and swagger in a circus-themed extravaganza that is bright and bold with plenty of big loud action to transport us into showtime. We’d expect nothing less from the Swedish game design maestros. It looks pretty top end when you compare it to the Aladdin’s Loot slot or any of the more traditional games.
There’s a whole heap of oompah and brass band action to help bring your inner slot god into the limelight. And listen to the hub-bub of the waiting crowd: they’re mad for it, as Noel would have said.
Respin Circus Slot Game Play
Well, I’ve played a few games from ELK Studios in my time, but even I was amazed and dazzled over this 4 rows, 6 reels and 64 payline puppy. Compare that to the Super Fruits Wild slot which has 10 lines. Quite a few more there! This circus corker is as dazzling on your mobile devices as on your desktop.
A contortionist cat (wow that was hard to say) is the highest value regular icon on the reels. This feline acrobat (easier) is followed by a monkey dressed as a clown with an accordion and a weight-lifting mouse. Each circus star has a tool of choice that makes up the mid-level symbols including a cannon, a bicycle and juggling batons.
Lower value icons are the Ace through Jack of the card deck created to perfectly suit the setting as balloons.
The crew of this circus extravaganza are headed by a ringmaster extraordinaire. You can’t miss the white rabbit with a smart moustache, a monocle and a tailcoat. This furry creature acts as the game’s Wild and subs for all icons except the Free Spins icon. And, as he’s the main dude running the show he comes with some nice tricks up his sleeves. You’ll notice though that this bunny won’t appear on the first reel. He’s done a disappearing act on reel 1, you might say.
The rabbit will land as an Expanded Wild, taking over a whole reel. This suave furry can be generous awarding you a random multiplier of between x2 and x4 with just a tap of that magical top hat. Bring on more of that money-making razzamatazz, you long eared fella you! And the showman-style symbol for Free Spins generates free games.
As you clever Bruces and Sheilas will guess from the game’s title, the big story on this game is all about the re-spin mechanism. If you land a winning combo you will unleash a free Re-spin.
When you land a win, the winning icons will become sticky while the remaining icons re-spin to help build further wins for you.
And better still, those sticky icons attract Wilds and other matching icons to form a cluster of winning icons just for little ol’ you. Each win you land will gain a re-spin which can make further wins. Blessed by circus magic, you can land higher value icons in the cluster and gain a Symbol Upgrade. Now the icons in your winning cluster become more valuable, hopefully generating a bigger win for you.
But that’s not the end of this circus act. After all of that bonus fun, if you land a trio of Free Spin icons onto the reels you will get 3 free games. Before you spin the reels a golden ticket is presented to you which will let you know how many extra Free Spins you will get.
Hold onto the bubbly, as this special golden gift could be a massive 24 extra free games. And, if this crew of remarkable animals isn’t entertainment enough, if you land additional Free Spin icons you will gain an extra free spin. Now that’s revved my engine!
Above all, the Respin Circus slot is a thrilling and flamboyant big top hit. We love the colourful cast of characters, the generous re-spins and the Symbol Upgrade. Pop on a top hat and tails and try and grab up to 24 Free Spins- this game is a full on, feelgood fiesta.
Wombat Score: 4.5 out of 5
A cracker of a game, I’ll be heading to the Big Tent immediately. This is no Dog and Pony show, this is the real deal. Careful though as this game is pretty volatile.
