Betting Options and Bonus Features
The 3 Clown Monty online slot feels like somewhat of an experiment by Play’n GO. The game is quite literally a clown fiesta, filled with wild and ridiculous features.
Bite-E, the cigar-smoking gorilla, will be your dealer. The gorilla’s portrait will act as your wild symbol. Wild symbols substitute for any other regular symbol in order to form a winning combination. They are also, the top-paying symbol in 3 Clown Monty.
Moreover, Bite-E will handle your Gorilla Meter. The meter is located above the 5x3 reels and can add multiplier values to your wild symbols. Wilds can randomly be enhanced with a 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x, 10x, or 25x wild multipliers during a single spin.
The next special symbol of 3 Clown Monty is the scatter symbol, illustrated by the iconic three clowns. Obtaining at least 2 scatters will trigger the Dealer’s Choice feature. The gorilla will randomly give you either 2 to 6 wilds or one additional scatter symbol, which will trigger your free spins bonus game. The added wilds are randomly placed on the reels and can moreover possess a multiplier if the multiplier reel is active during that turn.
If you obtain 3 scatters during a spin or through the Dealer’s Choice feature, the free spins feature will begin. You’ll be dealt 3 cards in a Pick’em game, each possessing a different number of bonus spins. The dealer will then shuffle the cards, three-card monte style, and you’ll be able to pick one.
During the bonus game, the multiplier reel is always active. In addition, you have the potential to unlock the second bonus round, the Monty Spins feature. This layered bonus feature is triggered by landing 2 or more scatter symbols.
You’ll once again start a Pick’em game and choose your number of Monty Spins. During which, all multiplier wilds become sticky. At the end of each Monty Spins game, you’ll be presented with a coin flip-styled game. You’ll either extend your Monty Spins by +3 or return to the regular free spins round.
Play’n GO came out with a super fun video slot. 3 Clown Monty brings back childhood memories of fairs. The visuals are lively and the sound effects are extremely vivid. The pick a card minigame makes things very engaging and having multiple bonus games is always a plus. Big props to Play’n GO. Definitely, a fun experience but so far I’m missing that big KLEEN win.
