As you step into the dark themed circus caravan of Wicked Circus, you will be greeted with a stunningly designed 3 X 5 reel setup with 20 paylines. Wager in this game starts from a mere 10p and is customisable all the way to £10 per spin. Everything about this game is a mystery.
More often than not, you will come across new animations and series of evil laughter that would make you feel like you are in a wicked circus yourself. From just playing this game for a few minutes, I think it is safe to say that that Wicked Circus is take from a thriller. The reels are hence pimped out with bells and creepy clowns.
One thing worth mentioning about this game is how unique the auto-spin feature is. Believe it or not, you can auto-spin up to a thousand times in this game. I guess this feature comes in pretty handy in the case that you tired after a hard days work. With this feature, you can also set it so that the auto-spin stops once it rises or drops below a threshold amount.
The Return to Player rate (RTP) of this game is 96.3%, and combined with the high paying features that this game has, the potentials for massive winnings are pretty high.
Every time we play an Yggdrasil game and we think that that’s the best it can ever get, Yggdrasil comes up with a brand new slot and proves us wrong. They have been continuously designing new concepts and features and with Wicked Circus, their new Jokerizer feature is nothing short of a marvel. In fact, if we will be honest here, this game is ALL about the Jokerizer Mode.
The concept of the Jokerizer mode is actually pretty simple. The mode is automatically triggered after any random win. In this feature, even after the Jokerizer mode is activated, you will continue playing as per usual with your winnings. Payout rates and amounts are usually through the roof during this mode as your chances of winnings are significantly improved. That’s said, you should always aim to continue playing during this mode.
Now that you know that the Jokerizer mode is triggered after any win, you should also know that you can only wager 20 coins anytime during the Jokerizer mode. This mode will automatically stop if you are rewarded a mystery win of 500 coins of more but you can stop playing the Jokerizer mode anytime by tapping on the collect winnings button at the bottom of the reels.
Whilst you are having fun in the Jokerizer mode, if you do get two evil clown symbols anywhere on your reels, you will receive a choice to either take you winnings or to activate the Hold function. The Hold function locks the reels with the evil clown symbols but leaves the remaining reels to be re-spun. You can continue to make Hold spins until you land up to five Jokers. Each Hold spin costs 60 coins, but imagine the payout when you do get your 5 Jokers!

We already know for fact that Yggdrasil designs immaculate games. Even after playing this game for over an hour, we encountered zero faults or lags. This game is playable across all ranges of devices, even on older models. The animations in this game are as crisp as they can be. The overall theme is also held very well throughout the gameplay with the high-definition symbols and crystal clear soundtrack.
We found it particularly hard to decide the unique feature of this game. From the time that we spent playing this game, we were mesmerized at how every single feature in this game worked hand in hand together to deliver that fun experience.
From the theme, to the gameplay, and everything in between, we felt like this slot game wouldn’t be complete without any of it. This is a feat that many other developers struggle to achieve and big props to Yggdrasil for giving us such an amazing game.
The Wicked Circus is such a thrill to play. You’ve got to try the Jokerizer bonus round yourself! I love how they hold the suspense by upping the stakes with every Jokerizer spin. When you finally hit a win, you’ll be rewarded with this amazing jolt of adrenaline (and well-earned cash, of course).
It’s another game altogether to decide when to hit collect and when to take the risk. And those mystery wins? I was once betting some low denomination when I received mystery wins from the higher end of the range. Thumbs up to Yggdrasil for coming up with a five-star player experience!
