If you can think of any sort of theme or trope that’s ever existed, chances are that Microgaming has made a pokie out of it. And chances are also that, as one of the best online gaming software developers in the world, the pokie is exceptionally beautiful and offers a variety of exciting ways to win real cash.

All of that is true for Twisted Circus, Microgaming’s creepy circus (aren’t they all?) 5-reel pokie. Featuring Microgaming’s signature 243-ways to win, some lucrative free spin and pick em bonuses, and a dark circus theme all freakshow fans will appreciate, Twisted Circus lives up to its name and then some. Read below in our Twisted Circus online pokies review to find out why we highly recommend it to all Aussie pokie players (circus fans or not).

Rating breakdown

Even though the music and graphics can come off as more as annoying than twisted, this Microgaming pokie more than makes up for it with its generous free spin, pick em game, and special wild features.

Detailed review


Jackpot & Bonus Games

Twisted’s main feature is its Circus Match Bonus, triggered by showing three ringmaster bonus symbols. You’ll be presented with a 4x4 grid of blue stars, and then you’ll click until you reveal any three of the circus twins, fire breather, strong man, or snake lady. There are also 4 hidden wilds that can help substitute for all other symbols and even award multiple wins. The first three symbols you reveal pays out an associated prize and if you match three wilds you’ll get paid for all symbols (a nice 42,000).

This Twisted Circus also has a free spin feature that awards you with 13 free games anytime you show three or more scatter symbols. Not only can these be retriggered, any wins you acquire during will pay out triple. The win possibilities in this feature aren’t endless, but they might as well be because you can win up to 416,000 real cash in it alone. All that said, while the potential payouts are quite large, during our review of Twisted Circus, collectively our staff didn’t hit anything close to the max payouts in either bonus.
