Respin Circus Slot review
With a feature list that largely revolves around respins, along with a modern design and payouts of up to 2,500x, this game is offered by ELK Studios.
Respin Circus manages to make itself a fairly interesting option, delivering not only an unusual layout, but also good rewards, the right RTP and plenty of features. Overall, it’s already looking like a good pick, so once you take into account the excellent graphics which were used in at least some of its symbols, there are a lot of reasons to try it out. Theme wise, we’re getting a circus where animals are the ones performing on the stage, rather than humans. We see a rat that’s lifting weights for example, a rabbit doing magic tricks, a monkey as the clown, or a cat as the acrobat. Get past the feature and top paying symbols, and you see images of cannons, bicycles or juggling pins. There are even four balloon-like Royals on that list, all the way to the bottom.
The game doesn’t quite have the standard setup, as it uses 6 reels with 64 paylines present on them. You do get a lot of good features, among which I will mention re-spins obviously, but also various wilds, multipliers or scatters with their free spins. It should be noted that the game is capable of paying 2,500x total stake for a single spin, while the RTP is calculated at 96.30%.
As with any other ELK slot, the bets are set from a different screen, one where options range from $0.20 to $100 per spin. Betting strategies are also available, for those inclined to let the computer change their wager.
The respin is a major feature in this game. It triggers every single time that you form a winning combination. First, it locks the winning symbols, then it re-spins the reels and tries to get you more symbols that will get you paid. You can land new wins, or improve existing ones.
The multiplier wild is one of the symbols you get to use, boosting wins by up to 4x when it contributes as a substitute.
You also have free spins, triggered via scatters which can end up appearing on all positions even. With 3 to 24 scatters, you get 3 to 24 free spins, respectively.
Respin Circus manages to do an excellent job, and while paying as much as $250,000, it gives you something interesting to play.
