The game design could have been taken straight from an eerie horror movie. A circus ground with carriages and tents surrounded by a blood-red hue are in the background of the game window that is fittingly decorated with blood splatters. A tipping piano soundtrack adds to the eerieness of the gameplay.
On the reels you will find the card royals from J to A at the low end, paying 1x to 1.5x your bet for a single five of a kind. They are followed by the bandage man, a chainsaw-wielding maniac, the devil himself and a zombie nurse. Hit five across the reels to win 2x to 10x your stake. The horror clown wielding a bloody knife is the wild symbol, substituting for all symbols bar scatters and bonus symbols. Pays for the wild are equal to the top-paying regular symbol. A hungry vampire is the bonus symbol while a pink-haired lady is the least frightening character and the scatter symbol.
The circus show on the reels starts off with random sticky wilds. Whenever a wild clown lands on a reel in the base game, you can have randomly knives thrown into his face, locking the symbol into place for another spin. Don’t jump off your chair as blood will be gushing out of his face when a knife hits him.
Landing the bald vampire on reels two, three and four in one spin will trigger the Electric Chair bonus game. You will enter the chamber of horror with the vampire tied up on an electric chair. You can now pick from 9 body parts that you want to be electrocuted. You can continue selecting parts until one button fails. A coin in is awarded for each successfully electrocuted part. The total amount will be doubled if you manage to pick 8 parts without hitting the fail button.
Prepare for the main act of the freak show when you land minimum three red-haired lady scatters anywhere on the reels. Three, four and five scatters will trigger 8, 12 and 15 free spins respectively, which can be retriggered indefinitely. During the feature, all wins are multiplied by x3. Plus, blood can randomly drip onto the third reel after any potential wins are paid, transforming it into a stacked wild. Wins are evaluated and paid again. Overall, you can win up to 3,000x your bet in the free spins.
Circus of Horror is a freakishly-well designed slot. GameArt created a very authentic game that anyone loving a horror show with stuff straight out of nightmares will enjoy spinning the reels on. Beware though, it plays is just as volatile as the creepy characters.
