The Circus Comes To Town with the Big Top Extravaganza
Big Top Extravaganza is a five reel slot, with twenty pay lines released by Openbet. The theme of the slot game is of course the circus. It is probably an old fashioned circus, though, as the symbols include a performing Seal, with Clowns, and a tightrope walker, and the Ringmaster. The lower value symbols are the classic playing cards, from Ten to Ace.
The Wild is a circus Strongman, and he can replace all other symbols if needed in a winning combination. To make it easier, the game allows you to use either Clown in a winning sequence. The Scatter symbol, which triggers the bonus round, is the Human Cannonball. There is also a bonus symbol, which is the Sideshow Sign. Big Top Extravaganza also offers players a progressive jackpot.
The Human Cannonball Triggers the Free Spins Round
The Free Spins bonus round is activated by three or more of the Human Cannonball appearing anywhere on the reels. You will be shown fifteen boxes, and behind each of the boxes is a certain number of free spins. You keep clicking on the boxes and collecting free spins, until you open the box that tells you to begin the bonus round. During this round some sticky Wilds will appear, and if one lands it will display the number of spins that it will remain. The more of these sticky Wilds that land on your reels, more opportunities you will have of some big wins. This bonus round in Big Top Extravaganza can be retriggered by finding three or more Scatters on the reels during the feature. Four or five Scatters appearing on the reels will also offer extra free spins. If you are lucky enough to find five Scatters, you win ten times your initial wager, plus twenty five more free spins.
A Progressive Jackpot Also Available
Three or more of the Sideshow signs appearing on an active pay line will trigger three mini games. Each of the mini games are connected to the circus, and are fairly short.
The Progressive jackpot in Big Top Extravaganza is connected to OpenBet’s jackpot network, and the totals will appear above the reels on the game. They are the Mini, Midi and Maxi jackpots, and are won by landing three, four or five of the Ringmaster symbol on an active pay line. You will give yourself a bigger chance of winning the progressive jackpot if you play the biggest number of pay lines that you can, as the feature is only triggered on active pay lines.
Three or four of the Ringmaster symbols appearing on the reels gives you a good cash payout as well.
A Chance to Gamble Your Wins
Big Top Extravaganza also offers you the chance to gamble your winnings. You can click the Gamble button after any win. You then try to guess correctly the colour of the next playing card, and a correct guess gets your winnings doubled. You can go further if you wish, and attempt to guess the suit of the card. Another correct guess will see your winning quadrupled.
Big Top Extravaganza is a slot that is great fun to play. The graphics are extremely bright and colourful, there are intriguing animations that happen when you win, and there are some lucrative payouts. There is also the offer of a progressive jackpot.
