Welcome to the Sinister Circus mobile slot! Where hell is full of demon clowns, threatening monkeys, fortune-telling witches and just enough menace to make you wonder if you’ll come out of this game alive.
We love it when slot games create a theme that makes you feel like you are part of the story. It doesn’t have to be a complicated story. Just make you feel like you are part of a world – a little bit like in the Wicked Circus slot.
And this Sinister Circus slot does just that from the moment you open up the reels. The high paying symbols are full of creepy ringmasters, evil monkeys and the demon clown would make “IT” run for his money.
You can imagine just taking a wrong turn down a dark alley and into a field full of potential fun, only to notice that not all is quite what it seems the deeper you head into this circus.
The appeal of this Sinister Circus online slot is that you have two types of wilds in the base game. A normal wild, that replaces all other symbols, and then the clown.
He will expand and cover the whole reel, giving you some very creepy but fun wins to watch. It’s amazing how a good theme can distract you from the fact that even with three massive wild reels, you still didn’t win much more than 20x your bet.
But that’s the whole point of the base game, to keep you entertained just long enough to get you into the tent, where the real demons lie.
And generally, it’s a good thing in Sinister Circus, where you can get multiple sticky wilds over 8 spins, leading to multiple wins over these 25 paylines.
The problem is that these bonus games are harder to find than a demon in hell, and so what you are left with is that demon clown in the base game, who gets less scary and more frustrating for every spin.
We got so swept away in the world of this Sinister Circus slot machine, with it’s three different types of wilds, that we didn’t notice that the wins weren’t anything particularly interesting. And that’s not too bad if you don’t mind some light entertainment, but you’ll probably want to skip ahead to the Zombie Circus online slot instead.

This Sinister Circus slot on mobile is wonderfully inventive and has that gothic feel and look that will make any fans of horror immediately fall in love.
It's a shame that the paytable doesn't quite match the beautiful theme, in that the wins are not exciting enough to really make it a 4-star mobile slot review. Getting anything over 20x your bet is hard work.
Thank-god for the free spins and those sticky wilds which helps give you hope, though you are still probably better off playing on the NetEnt Dead or Alive slot game if you want eye-popping wins.
Sinister Circus is a 5x3 reel slot machine with 25 paylines, 3 types of wilds, scatters and free spin bonus games.
