3 Clown Monty is a simple clown-themed slot from Play'n GO. The clown theme pervades every aspect of this game and can be either creepy or entertaining. What is nice though, is the way this game operates. There are no additional mechanics in play, rather this is a simple 5 reel, 10 payline slot. But, there are a lot of additional features all designed to push this game on to those potential wins. Here there are multipliers, wilds, bonus spins and more. The game can be played from 10p to £100 per spin. This is a good range considering that the top prize that this game offers is a rather decent 20,000x the initial bet. To round things off, this slot also has an above-average RTP of 96.23%, although it does have a high volatility level too.
What 3 Clown Monty is all about
Head to the worst circus in the world with this 3 Clown Monty slot. In this slot, there are three clowns, Schmucky, Bumbo and Whatda. All of them are a little sad, but also slightly creepy in the way only a clown can be. The soundtrack of the game also matches, helping propel things along. In addition to the three entertainers, the reels are populated with various clown trucks, pies and low-paying symbols in the form of card suits. The game itself is very bright and vivid in keeping with a circus feel. There are additional bonus symbols here too, including Bite-E the clown gorilla as the wild, and the red clown scatter. These additional symbols will trigger the bonus games that include multiplier wilds, bonus spins, sticky wilds and a whole lot more.
Wild Multiplier Feature and Dealer's Choice
The first of four bonuses is the Wild Multiplier Feature. This is activated by Bite-E the gorilla wild. This feature is triggered at random adding a multiplier to any wild that is already on the reels. The multiplier starts at 2x the bet, but can end up reaching 25x the initial bet. If more than one multiplier wild is on the reels, then the values are multiplied together for even bigger payouts. The Dealer's Choice feature requires the three clowns scatter symbol. When two of these land on the reels, the Dealer's Choice bonus activates. This then turns into wild scatters and there are two options to follow. The first is that more wilds are added to the reels, the second sees a third scatter added to the reels, which then triggers the bonus spins feature.
Bonus spins feature
As mentioned, to get the Bonus Spins feature, three of the 3 clown scatters need to land on the reels. The number of spins that are awarded for this does depend on the number of scatters that are landed. Additionally, for each number of scatters, there are three different bonus spin amounts that can also be won. So, for three scatters landed 5, 7 or 9 spins can be claimed. For four scatters landing, 7, 9 or 10 bonus spins are given. Finally, for five scatters landed on the reels, 9, 10 or 12 bonus spins can be claimed. Throughout this, the Bite-E gorilla will keep adding wild multipliers to the reels so that all wilds are multiplier wilds for the duration of the bonus spins. All in all, adding more wins.
Monty Spins feature
The final feature in 3 Clown Monty is the Monty Spins future. This is triggered in the middle of the standard Bonus Spins round. When the Bonus Spins feature is underway, landing at least two scatters while it plays will activate the Monty Spins feature. Again, the number of scatters that land during this feature will determine how many bonus spins are awarded. As before, there are three spin options per scatter landed. For two scatters, 2, 4, or 6 spins are given. Three scatters awards 5, 6, or 7 spins, with four scatters delivering 6, 7, or 8 Monty Spins. Finally, landing five scatters on the reels will give 7, 8 or 9 bonus spins. During this feature, any wilds landing become sticky, wild multipliers remaining in place for the duration of the Monty Spins.
Summary of 3 Clown Monty
For those that can get past the clowns, 3 Clown Monty is a good game to get playing. It's actually relatively simple too, offering an easy gameplay to get to grips with. The key in this game is to focus on the wild multipliers as these can appear in the base game and in both bonus spins features. Getting the Sticky Wild multipliers in the Monty Spins bonus is where the big wins are though. This is where that 20,000x the initial bet jackpot can be grabbed. However, this game doesn't really offer much in the way of uniqueness, and it has very high volatility. This means that there are some long winless periods. That being said, if the multipliers hit 25x in the base game, it's still possible to score some potential wins without the bonuses.
