Circuses have certainly changed over the past few decades. The days of elephants and lions being made to perform acts they should never have been doing (who wants a human’s head in your mouth?) are almost over and a lot of circuses are more about daredevil acrobatic acts and dramatic music. That’s the case in this entertaining slot game from Novomatic and it’s packed with winning combinations.
If you didn’t manage to get your French ‘O’ Level then ‘Cirque du Cheval’ means ‘Circus Horse’ in English. That neatly explains why there are so many horses in this game. It’s a five-reel game that on its three rows of attractive looking symbols are a total of 40 pay-lines. Just how many of those pay-lines are activated on each spin of the reels is entirely down to the player. A lot of Novomatic slot games have fixed amounts of pay-lines but not this one. You also need to work out your stake for this game and the minimum stake for activating all the pay-lines is 0.40 and the maximum a whopping 2000 so high rollers will be keen on giving this a go. Just work out a budget you can safely play at and won’t cost you any financial worries if lady luck isn’t on your side one night.
The rather strange looking symbols include a frog that is wearing a red waistcoat, a galloping hare, a pink ostrich, a blue seahorse, and a white unicorn that has a blue mane. Play this after a few pints and it might scare the life of you. These are the kind of creatures you’d expect to see on a carousel and they do have a striking look to them. Seeing the game has a Carousel bonus game, I’m surprised carousel doesn’t get included in the title. We also get the ten to Ace playing card symbols which are the ones that pay out the least amount of money.
The Wild symbol in this slot is the Cirque du Cheval logo and it’s one you will love seeing. That’s because of its fantastic ability of being able to substitute for other symbols, with skills like that it should be in the circus. That can help get you lots of winning combinations but it’s unable to sub for the carousel and tickets which help players in other ways. If you can get five wilds on a pay-line that has a 500x multiplier so keep an eye out for them.
If a stack of the four ticket symbols end up on the first reel at the end of a spin and a carousel symbol is on the fifth, then you are in luck. The reels suddenly shift along to reveal more ticket symbols and this sees you playing with either 12, 16 or 20 free spins. Just how many you receive depends on how many times those stacked symbols are shifted along. I’ve had a few times when it’s the full 20 that are awarded, so good luck with that one.
Try to learn as much as you can about this slot before pumping some real cash into it. Have a good look through the paytable to see how much the winning combinations pay. For example, five of the unicorn symbols on a pay-line has a 150x multiplier and it’s 125x for five ostriches. The paytable also tells you where all those pay-lines are and the rules of the bonus game so it’s essential reading. Also have some free games to see how everything works without having to spend any money at all. That’s definitely important in this game what with all the shifting reels action.
As is the case in several Novomatic slot games, ‘Cirque du Cheval’ has a gamble feature. This appears after you get a winning combination and gives you the opportunity to increase that win. It’s a case of correctly guessing the colour of the next card to double your win and you can try that five times. You’d be a bit mad to try and do it five times, try it yourself with a pack of cards and see how many times you get five correct guesses in a row. You can’t afford to lose here because one guess wrong and you will lose your winnings so be careful with this and reserve it just for small wins.
If the gameplay in this slot entertains you, then try your luck on this game that has a similar style. ‘The Vanishing Act’ from IGT also has 40 pay-lines and offers its players a free spins round with stacked wilds. Also give a go to the High 5 Games release, ‘Ancient Arcadia’ which will give you the chance to get more wins via stacked wilds and a free spins round.
A great looking slot game that gives its players some good chances of getting big wins. The theme is a good one. The free spins round is an interesting one, always good to see something a little bit different. There are definitely plenty of reasons to enjoy playing this slot game.
