Big Top Slot

Roll up, roll up! The Big Top circus is in town to send you into stitches of laughter and leave you walking out of the exit door with a bundle of cash. While there have been various circus-themed slots developed in the past, the Big Top slot machine from Microgaming is certainly of the most enjoyable thanks to the bright and bold colours used, the quirky design of the symbols, and the relatively large payouts for such as basic slot.

Played across 5 reels and 9 paylines, the Big Top slot machine lacks the upbeat, noisy atmosphere of a circus as there is silence until you click on the spin button. It then bursts into life with the beats of a xylophone ringing out before the gears churn and the reel’s spin rapidly before falling into place – although this is all rather slow compared to the usual quickness we expect of Microgaming slot machines and therefore means less spins per minute if speed matters to you.

Fun and Colourful Symbols

For me, it’s the design that makes Big Top so much pleasure to play. Microgaming have done a great job portraying the action and excitement of a circus in the symbols that have been used, with twelve of them in total for you to cheer on as they land you big wins.

The Wild is the rather crazy looking Clown with each letter of the word ‘Wild’ having a different colour and standing out from the pack with typical slot machine rules applying as it substitutes for all other symbols aside from the Scatter. Speaking of the Scatter this is a Monkey and wins it is involved in see the Scatter wins (such as 50 coins for 5 on a payline) multiplied by the total number of credits that were initially staked.

In addition to these two special symbols you’ll be screaming for the Big Top logo to land on the reel s as it has the highest value of all, while a Lion acts as the Ringmaster, another quirky Clown, a cycling Elephant, ball juggling Seal, and low valued Ace to 10 playing card symbols complete the reels.

Big Top for 5,000 Coins

Now you know what symbols you’ll encounter on the reels of the Big Top slot machine, it’s time to learn how valuable each of them is.

The biggest win of all comes at the hands of the Big Top logo as five of these symbols on the same payline will pocket you 5000 coins, though even landing four will see you win 800 coins which is higher than any of the other combinations. The Lion is the next most valuable as five on a payline pays 600 coins, five of the Clown pays 500 coins, five cycling Elephants pays out 300 coins, and five juggling Seals pays 250 coins.

Then we get on to the lowest valued symbols – the playing cards that you’ll recognise from video poker machines such as Aces and Fives. Five of the Ace symbols on a payline are worth 150 coins while five of the Jack or Ten symbols is worth 100 coins – with these both being the equally lowest valued of all, in stark contrast to the 50x higher win achievable by landing five of the Big Top logos instead!

Basic but Big Wins on Offer!

Like the Break da Bank slot machine, Big top is incredibly simplistic with no bonus features like free spins, instant wins, or progressive jackpots on offer. Saying that, landing five Wild symbols on a line does pay out 5000 coins which is very nice, and even four on a payline is worth 800 coins so there are certainly some big wins up for grabs if you can persevere.

Another stumbling block in the Big Top slot machine is the range of betting options as they suit mid-range bankrolls rather than low and high stakes players. The minimum you can play all nine paylines for is £2.25 (25p per line) and the maximum is £45 (£5 per line). Most low stakes players are used to playing all paylines of a slot for as little as 25p, while the maximum stake of £45 probably won’t be enough to entice the high rollers amongst you, with Novomatic’s Just Jewels Deluxe being a better alternative if you dislike the staking options on offer in Big Top.
