Bonus Features of Circus of Horror
Gruesome Clown acts as the game's Wild, and yet the icon can be all but funny. The Gruesome Clown replaces all the icons in the game except for the Scatter and the Bonus symbols.
Within the game, players will get an opportunity to meet Nosferatu himself as he is the bonus icon that will activate the Electric chair feature, and Devora, the purple-haired snake lady, will launch the Free Spins.
Electric Chair & Nosferatu
Landing Nosferatu on the second, third or fourth reels activates this feature. Once unleashed players will be taken to an alternate screen with Nosferatu tied to an electric chair, and they must choose which body parts they wish electrocute.
Players will have nine body parts to choose from, and they can maintain the torture until one of the buttons fails to electrocute or until they've pressed all eight buttons without fail. If players manage to push all eight buttons, their total wins will receive an x2 multiplier. Gruesome really!
Sticky and Bloody Wilds
During the primary game, players can expect knives to get randomly thrown at Wilds. If one of them hits a Wild, it will turn it into a Sticky Wild and become locked in place for subsequent spins to follow.
Alternatively, players can expect dripping blood during the Free Spins function that occurs randomly on the third reel. Once it does the entire reel becomes Wild, and the wins are paid out at the end of the transformation.
Landing at least three Devora symbols on the reels will bestow players eight, twelve or fifteen spins complete with an x3 multiplier. The number of turns won will depend on the number of activating icons. Note that the feature can be retriggered if players land another three or more of the Devora icons.
After each win, players can begin the Gamble feature by hitting the Gamble button. Once ignited, players will be taken to a secondary screen with a card faced down, and they will get to decide either black or red. If the selection is correct, they will double the wins, if the decision is incorrect the player will forfeit their bet stake and be returned to the base game.
Circus of Horror has ghoulishly good visuals that will undoubtedly not leave players feeling indifferent. This wickedly bonus feature packed game can seem a bit of a gorefest for many players yet for those who love horror and gore, this game won't disappoint.
