Review of Big Top Bonanza Megaways

Skywind Group has a pretty diverse collection of Megaways products under their belt at this point, including remakes of older releases, asian-style dynamic reel action, and even an installment with a 'Book of' mechanic. In other words, you're never quite sure what to expect when a new release pops up, which is probably a good thing, and when it comes to Big Top Bonanza Megaways, there's a few surprises that make it stand out from the rest.

As the game is themed around a circus, I thought it was an original idea, and I liked the action commentary provided by the Ringmaster. Turbo spins are appreciated, and there are 5 different modifiers you can get from the three different-tier bonus modifier symbols that slide in on the top reel as you spin the reels, as well as the turbo spins. There is a progressive multiplier introduced in the bonus round, and this will keep you on your toes in the base game even more than it does when you are playing the base game. As you can see, the 5,000x potential is below par, but it is compensated for by a medium volatility and a solid return to player percentage of 96.5 %.


Features of the Big Top Bonanza Megaways slot machine

For six of a kind wins, the premium symbols are worth anywhere from 2 to 5 times your stake, while the Ringmaster Wild symbol can only appear on reels 2-6. Despite the fact that the wild has no value of its own, it can step in for the pay symbols to help complete winning combinations in the game. As long as you keep winning, the winning symbols will be replaced via the cascading mechanic, giving you indefinite extra wins per round as long as you keep winning.

A horizontal reel on the top of the screen slides in regular symbols as well as 3 different Bonus Modifier symbols at random times during the game. There are three modifier symbols that can be seen as follows:

In the normal mode (clown) the multiplier will be either x2, x3 or x5, you will receive a wild below, the megaways will be increased, or 2 to 6 random wilds will be added or all Js will be replaced by Qs.

The super (fortune teller) pays out 2 wilds below, a multiplier of x5, x8 or x10, increases the megaways up to a minimum of 15,625, gives out 3-9 random wilds, or replaces all J's and Q's with K's.

In the Mega (strongman) slot, you have the option of either replacing all of the symbols beneath with wilds, getting a x15, x25 or x50 multiplier, maxing out the megaways, adding up to 15 random wild symbols, or replacing J, Q and K with A symbols.

It is possible to trigger the Bonus Round if you land 4, 5 or 6 scatters anywhere on the reels, and you will then receive 10, 13 or 16 free spins, depending on the amount of scatters you land. During the cascading feature, the progressive win multiplier increases by +1 for each cascading win that occurs during the feature, and the multiplier will not reset during the period of the bonus round. In addition to the progressive multiplier, the multipliers from the Bonus Modifiers are added to the progressive multiplier, and if you land three, four, five or six scatters in a cascading sequence, then you will win three, six, nine or twelve extra spins, respectively.

Last but not least, non-UK players, as well as anyone else eligible, may also take advantage of the Buy-In Feature. By doing so, you will not only be able to purchase the bonus round for 100x your stake, but you will also be guaranteed at least four scatter symbols on the spin that follows. You can also pay 25 % more per spin if you want to turn on the Ante Bet feature, which will double your chances of entering the bonus round.
