Zombie Circus is a Relax Gaming video slot revolving around a circus filled with zombies on the loose, killer clowns and many extra wilds

The small game developer Relax Gaming has been very active in the last couple of months.

They recently announced that they will be working with Big Time Gaming to release Megaways slots under license.

So in the future, you can expect in-house versions of Extra Chilli and Bonanza.

So enough reasons for us to take a closer look at the games by Relax Gaming.

Zombie Circus gameplay and features

This slot has 5 reels with 3 rows of symbols. There are 10 fixed paylines, and wagering is between $€ 0.10 and $€ 100 per spin.

The payout rate of almost 97% is remarkably high. That is simply splendid.

We estimate the variance to be medium with a side note that the massive winnings can only be gotten in the free spin bonus.

In any case, Zombie Circus makes a great impression: the zombies look scary, and a lot of creativity went into designing the symbols.

We miss some exciting and creepy animations, something this type of slot would be ideal for. So, a bit of a missed opportunity.

Fortunately, in contrast, the bonus round is very entertaining and can result in massive payouts.

Symbols and payouts

The wilds pay out the most: 5 wilds on a payline nets you 50 x the total bet.

The remainder of the symbols consists of a mix of zombies and card symbols.

There are four different zombies in the game:

  • A devilish knife-thrower
  • A truly hysterical killer clown
  • A gloomy fortune teller
  • A zombie New Orleans style

The medium value symbols pay out between 15 x and 40 x the total bet with a 5-of-a-kind on an active payline.

The card symbols 10, J, Q, K, and A are worth between 5 x and 7.5 x the bet with five identical ones.

Free spins bonus

The free spins bonus is activated by 3, 4, or 5 scattered merry-go-rounds on reels 1, 3, and 5.

Before you enter the free spins bonus, two essential things need to be arranged. You can do this by clicking on zombies that are approaching you in so-called waves.

Click on a zombie of your choice to decide:

  • How many free spins you will get (5 or 10)
  • Which symbol will be transformed into extra wilds

The number of symbols converted into extra wilds is determined by the number of activating bonus scatters.

3 scatters will get you one symbol, 4 will award two symbols, and 5 scatters will yield three symbols.

It is also possible to earn extra picks.

In short: it is just crazy exciting stuff. The more free spins, and the more extra wild symbols you choose, the more you can earn during the free spins.

It is also possible to retrigger the free spins. Then you are a lucky dog: you get to click again for extra free spins and even more extra wild symbols.

During the free spins, the maximum win is a screen full of wilds, for a payout of 500 x the total bet.

Our verdict on the Zombie Circus video slot

Zombie Circus is a slot a bit slow off the mark. So just like a real zombie.

The base game is not very fast and sometimes even dull.

It looks good, but a few frightening effects and animations would have done wonders for the gameplay experience. Now it just sorts of trudges along.

If you win the free spin bonus, on the other hand, then Zombie Circus comes to life, and you can finally get your mitts on those big juicy prizes.

All in all, more than sufficient.

3.5 out of 5 stars.
