As the infamous Alex from DreamWorks Animation’s Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted once said, prepare to be stunned folks, it’s time for The Circus! The developers at Red Tiger bring Cirque du Soleil vibes to the slots universe in their latest slot, Cirque De La Fortune, a title that translates to Circus of the Fortune. An exaggeration there perhaps, but let us the take front row, as usual, for a through and through vivisection.

Overview, Math Model Stats, & Paytable
Like a typical Red Tiger Slot, Cirque De La Fortune lets players know the best they can technically win once the loading process is complete. The exact figure is 3471.8X, but the developers figured- win over 3333X!- might sound more captivating. And it does.
The familiarity continues to the math model stats. Return to Player percentage falls in the usual below-average range at 95.73%, while volatility is set at high to make this slot high-risk just like what inspired it. That said, the features coloring the base game, as well as the free spins round, may not come by too often, but they can be satisfying when they do.
Although there is no need to dwell so much on the slot’s skin, the developers have done an excellent job here with their recognizable sheeny graphics. A must-mention, however, are the symbols that populate the grid on each spin. They include a pair of Venetian masks, a fire-breather, a clown performer, a magician, a juggler, and a quartet of blackjack icons, all of which pay base rewards ranging from 0.1 to 10X on a single payline. The remaining symbols are the flaming wilds and regular wilds, which pay as much as the premium regulars on top of their substituting powers.
Keep an eye on the feature wheel just above the grid as it can activate on any round and spin to land a flame of fire, juggling clubs, top hat, or a magician’s hands on the pointer.
By awarding fully stacked flaming wilds and scattered wilds, flames and clubs do not put up much of a show when you get them. The other two do, however, starting with the top hats that cause all low-payers to disappear to allow the high-payers to gravitate and finally the magician’s hands that choose one symbol type to expand over all the reels it is present in. Players will be thrilled to find out that the symbol stacks resulting from the latter pay regardless of whether they are adjacent or not.
Free spins symbols can also show up on the reels during the base game. Land three of them on the grid at the same time to unlock ten rounds on the house, where each free spin symbol sighting adds five rounds to the free spins tally. What’s more, an additional multiplier wheel gets added on to offer win booster multipliers of up to 10X.
Cirque De La Fortune- Our Verdict
Cirque De La Fortune is yet another slot from Red Tiger where you end up getting mixed feelings as a reviewer. It pleases you with a unique theme that’s so perfectly executed, yet it is let down by modest paytable values that fail to push the math model to the limit.
As we conclude most reviews on typical products from this developer, Cirque De La Fortune is unlikely to earn a spot in the slots hall of fame. However, it is not a bad slot; just a bit lacking with a calculable max potential of up to 3000X in the bonus round (30X on ten paylines subjected to a multiplier of 10X). It is forgettable, that’s for sure, but good runs are nonetheless possible when the circus is livened up by the feature and multiplier wheels.
