The third in this Yggdrasil series, the Wicked Circus slot welcomes back the mystery wins but gives you the chance to hold on for bigger, better wins.
Once upon a time, there lived a young circus joker who was bright, and happy, and full of life. This happy clown is found in the Jokerizer slot game, where any 2 or more jokers got you a mystery win.
The next time we met this personality, he’d risen from the undead, haunting the nightmares of those who dared remained in this fruity circus. The Dark Joker Rizes slot machine took a dark turn, and we loved it.
Somewhere between ‘bright and happy’ and ‘dark and haunted’, you’ve got the Wicked Circus online slot.
This is the Joker when he started to turn to the dark side, but the circus was still alive and bright. His psychosis, no doubt, was the reason his colleagues murdered him, only to return in the Rizes game.
Basically, we love the theme. It’s unusual for a series of mobile slot machines to so nicely fit with each other. Granted we made up most of the story above, but if you saw these mobile slot games, you’d come to the same conclusion.
None of these Yggdrasil slot games are particularly complicated. The whole point of them is to bet back your winning in order to play in ‘Jokerizer Mode’ where you get more joker symbols.
These give you mystery wins of up to 6,000 coins.
Except that with this Wicked Circus mobile slot you get the added advantage that you can pay extra to hold joker symbols on screen, hoping to catch more of these wicked clowns, as they pay out more.
You can’t be shy about betting back your winnings with this Wicked Circus slot game. If you do, you’ll never get big enough wins to get you out of this circus alive.
The best returns we’ve gotten in this casino game is when we’ve bet back any winnings, and held the jokers whenever we had a chance.
Sure, we lost a fair amount of winnings, but then got some blazing 50x our bet, and more, on several occasions to make up for it.
It doesn’t always work out in your favour, but this is a video slot for the bold only. If that sounds a little too wicked, we’d recommend Fire Joker by Play’n GO, which is a little easier on the wallet.
Personally, we love this tale of dark temptation, and understand why Yggdrasil keep bringing this joker back to our screens.

Pays Both Ways: This is a pay both way slot game, unlike the other two joker slots, meaning the wins tends to be a little more frequent - which you'll need to afford the holds in jokerizer mode.
This basically just means that you get wins whether the symbols line up from left to right, or right to left. Much like in the Legend of the White Snake Lady slot by the same game studio.
Mystery Wins: When ever 3 or more joker symbols appear in the base game, you will get a mystery win. In jokerizer mode, you only need two symbols to trigger a mystery win.
Jokerizer Mode: Whenever you get any win, the game goes into 'jokerizer' mode.
You can choose, if you wish, to collect your winnings, and not enter, or you can choose to spin 20 coins a spin of those winnings on jokerizer mode.
Here, not only are you more likely to catch those jokers, but 2 jokers is all you need for a mystery win.
On top of that, if you get two or more jokers, you can choose to spin 60 coins a spin to freeze the jokers on screen and keep spinning to catch more jokers, and a bigger mystery prize.
If you win more than 500 coins, the game will assume you want your winnings and not ask you to keep playing on this mode.
This Wicked Circus mobile slot won't be for everyone. With no free spins or bonus features, newbie gamblers may not understand why they should spend their winnings in order to pay for the one bonus feature of this game.
What they don't understand is that the return of this machine increases dramatically to 115.8% during Jokerizer mode, meaning being brave is the only way to walk away happy.
We know it's a love it or hate it type of mechanics, but don't worry, if you want a more traditional fruity, we'd recommend the Winterberries slot which requires less thinking.
