The game play is very interesting thanks to the Jokerizer mode and medium to big wins can come often. One of the best details of the game that correspond with the theme is the background music along with the evil laugh the Joker makes when he lands on a reel. If you like video pokie games with a dark theme Wicked Circus is definitely the game for you.
What We love
Wicked Circus is a decent video pokie game to play for low rollers and high rollers. If you are playing with a limited budget you can easily play a big number of spins and end up in a small plus.
Beside the overall game play and theme we especially like the Jokerizer mode. The chances of winning 4-5 Joker symbols on the reels seem pretty big thanks to the Hold button. Also we like the fact that the cost of 60 coins per spin with Joker symbols held in place doesn’t increase if you win an extra Joker symbol.
Even if you have a small number of coins and 2 Joker symbols on the reels we recommend to hit the Hold button. Even in one spin you can win an extra Joker symbol which makes a big difference in the mystery coin payout.
What we Do not Like
One of the facts we don’t like about Wicked Circus is that the Jokerizer mode ends when you win 500 coins or more. This is still a decent win of 50 x bet or more but it would be better if that limit was bigger. Even if you win 490 coins and have 2 Joker symbols held in place you only have enough coins for only 8 spins to win the maximum 5 Jokers which seems too little.
Also during base play if you win 3 Joker symbols you are instantly awarded with the mystery coin win instead of having the option to hold them in place. It would be much better if that option was available in base play so you can chase those 5 Jokers with your entire cash balance.
Whether a game is worth playing or not usually depends on the maximum payout, but that’s not the case here. The Jokerizer mode gives you a chance to have medium to big wins and the ultimate 6,000 coins win seems like chasing the jackpot. Still the game isn’t a high variance pokie, so you can increase your balance in a very short time.
Hitting a big win on the screen is always a minimum 50 x bet win and in most cases over 100 x bet. We tried the game for real and are happy for the results, but it is up to you to decide if you will like it or not. Our advice is to keep spinning and use the Hold button in every chance you get in order to get a big win on your screen.
