Why “The *Twisted* Circus”, anyway? Perhaps because in actuality, this seems to be a carnival – after all, there’s a severe lack of animals in the Microgaming show. Additionally, there seems to be a lot more cleavage than at either traditional circus or carnival, as the ladies of the show from Siamese twins to magicians have no problem displaying the ol’ Barnum-and-Baileys.
In any case, The Twisted Circus is a “243 Ways to Win” game of the sort that Microgaming digs so much these days, meaning that any three matching symbols anywhere in the first three reels form a winning combination.
The number of coins that can be wagered on a single spin is frozen at 20, with the maximum possible jackpot payout 550,000 coins or $275,000. The three bonus symbols (which exist only in the right three columns) on a spin trigger the “Circus Match Bonus” round.
