Behind the dazzling graphics is a slot game with 5 reels and 15 paylines. It also features an acceptable payoff frequency and two bonus mini-games. This game is playable from a minimum wager of 30p to a maximum of £90 per spin, hence it is of medium variance and is exclusive to Android-based mobile devices. That said, it is not all about the paylines, it is the yummy, progressive jackpot that turns heads.
There is also an auto-spin feature to make gameplay for convenient for all gamers. More often than not, we come home after a hard days work and would just like to spend the least amount of energy and effort playing games. Better still, the auto-play proves its effectiveness when you have a cold glass of beer in your hands and you find it a tad too difficult to multitask.
Jackpot Big Top comes with two unique bonus feature games, triggered when you get at least two symbols of Mirth Mobile or Fearless Fortuni within an active win line. For the Mirth Mobile feature, depending on the number of Mirth Mobile symbols you have on the line, you may get anything from a 5x win multiplier up to a staggering 200x multiplier on your spin wager.
The goal is to guess the number of clowns in the car on the slider to the right of the screen, if the number of clowns is more than your guess, you win the multiplier for your selected number. If you got the exact number right, you get the bonus multiplier (you are in for a treat!). But if the number of clowns is less than your guess, you get nothing.
The second mini-game is called Fearless Fortuni: you start off by selecting an animal (or winning multiplier) and then depending on the number of symbols in the active win line, you get between one to four spins. The wheel has two ‘lose’ zones and two ‘win’ zones, spin it and off you go, the rest is self-explanatory.
There is a ‘hidden’ wild card combo bonus. Hitting 5x wild cards in a win line will grant a whopping 2,000x win multiplier. This makes the wild card a mini jackpot of sorts.
Now to the main course of this game, the jackpot. In order to get the Progressive Jackpot, we have to hit 5x Jackpot symbols, a mixture with wild cards will trigger a 300x win multiplier, which is not too shabby on its own. The real treat about having a Progressive Jackpot is that it is unknown how much you can win and it does not depend on the wager amount.
Worth noting is the auto spin feature, which can be set to stop if – the number of spins reached up to a maximum of 99 times, a single win exceeds a specific amount, or player credit drops below a value. This is a welcomed feature that can save us from overworking our poor fingers.

The game feels very responsive, since it loads fast even on a Samsung Galaxy S3, it is very well optimised for Android based mobile devices. The in-game graphics are on the money with the circus theme all the way through, animations are smooth and ‘flowy,’ audio quality is good with the sound effects being unforgettable, it almost feels like you’re in a circus with all the beeps and boops! Besides, who doesn’t like symbols coming to life and cheering you on as you spin away?
The most unique feature is, hands down, the progressive jackpot. Not only is it eye catching, it is also part of the attraction towards players who started their first few spins. The two mini games provide change of pace, but an average 4x wager returns with an average chance of winning. That said, it is a no-brainer for everyone to try their luck out in Jackpot Big Top mobile slot. All you have to do is get lucky once, and you would be walking home a very rich person!
Jackpot Big Top says it all, the huge progressive jackpot and amazing features just keeps us wanting for more wins, we had had completely lost track of time playing this game!
The cheerful atmosphere, band background music, absolutely colourful interface, amusing sound effects (beeping clown nose on spin) and well optimised game performance are just a few of the reasons why this game is a great and an interactive slot game! Well then, who’s up for a trip to the circus?
