Yggdrasil Gaming has just released a thrilling slot called Wicked Circus at Kiwi casinos. This pokie has five reels, ten paylines and three rows. Additionally, the game features fairly standard slot symbols and some less standard ones, much like a retro slot mixed with a video poker game. Still, there are a few features that should up the excitement for NZ players.
For a low stakes game, there is quite a large betting range. Players can choose to bet from NZ$0.01 to NZ$20, depending on their bankroll. All paylines are active, but bet sizes can be changed. However, we recommend keeping these within increments you’ve used in other games. Most casinos don’t approve of suddenly higher bets.
Symbols & Game Features
As the name suggests, Wicked Circus is not your typical show. This mainly because of the Dark Joker and his creepy appearance on the reels. Landing two Jokers activates the Jokerizer game mode. In this special feature, players can win up to 500 coins. If you land more Dark Jokers, the ‘Hold’ feature will activate and keep those reels frozen for one re-spin.
Two or more Dark Joker symbols will also activate the ‘Mystery Win’ feature. Luckily, you can exit the Jokerizer mode at any time by clicking ‘Collect’ next to the spin button. Also, keep in mind that each spin costs 20 coins in the game mode. Another way to activate Mystery Win is to land three Dark Jokers in the base game.
Wicked Circus Pokie Rating
Overall, Wicked Circus is a fun pokie with a few quirky extras. We liked the graphics, animation and sounds, though the jackpot is quite small. However, this isn’t everything in a slot machine, and the game is worth a try. Aside from that, this is a nice pokie for casual gamblers who enjoy Yggdrasil titles or a new experience. For these reasons, we’ve rated Wicked Circus three out of five stars.
