When I first saw the title ‘3 Clown Monty II’ my mind (don’t judge) went to the movie Full Monty and I began to wonder if Play’n GO had really released a slot featuring naked clowns. I’m glad I was wrong although it wouldn’t surprise me one bit if a naked clowns slot would be a massive success.
So, the Monty boys are back for another run after first having made an appearance back in 2021. I have to admit that I had completely forgotten about the first release, but I still stick by my opening.
Beware of Coulrophobia
I know there are a lot of people out there suffering from Coulrophobia, a fear of clowns. Personally I have a hard time relating to it, which I guess is a good thing, but it’s amazing how scared some people are of these face-painted fools in big shoes.
The Circus Has Come to Town
Can Multiplier Wilds, Free Spins and a Pick ‘N Click Bonus Game be the cure that will help you realize that clowns are here for our entertainment? Fingers crossed but let’s sort out the tickets and get in line because the circus is meant to be the best show in town and I’m curious to see if it lives up to people’s expectations.
Monkey See Monkey Do
I really enjoy the sharp, detailed graphics and the darker colors help set the mood for an evening show. The fact that the location seems to be smack in the middle of the city is a bit surprising but to each his own and the gorilla in charge of the reels is probably responsible.
According to Play‘n GO, the location is supposed to be Las Vegas but I don’t buy that for a second. It doesn’t look anything like Sin City, does it?
Although the 3 clowns are the premier artists, I think the gorilla is the one getting the most attention. Sitting on top of the reels, it’s clear that he is the puppeteer with his take-no-prisoners attitude.
Release Date: January 18, 2024
Bet Limits: €0.10 – €25
Features: Multiplier Wilds, Free Spins
Smokin’ Hot Multiplier Wilds
You’ll see multipliers pop up on the screen together with the gorilla pimp symbol. In the base game, the multipliers will vary from 2x to 5x. You can actually see which one you’ll get if you look at the gorilla above the reels.
He’s a cigar fanatic and smokes during the entire game. You will be able to see the glowing cigar setting the tone and decide what type of multiplier you get on a particular spin. It’s a very cool detail and I give Play’n GO the credit they deserve for it.
When you make it to the Free Spins, instead of 5x, your Multiplier Wilds can reach all the way up to 50x.
A Free Spin Show Is Up Next
By landing at least 3 of the golden tickets, you’ll open the door to Free Spins. Depending on how many golden tickets you managed to score, you will end up with 5, 8 or 10 spins.
Pick A Card
Before you can begin putting your Free Spins to the test, there’s some card magic to get involved in. It’s about the Walking Wilds and your job is to pick one of 3 cards to reveal how many of them you’ll get to play with.
Sticky And Wild
Walking Wilds are sticky and will take a walk between each Free spins as well as stay active all throughout.
Add More Multipliers
First of all, your Walking Wilds will only move between the middle three reels BUT they can carry a multiplier.
Nice New Look
As you can see in the image above, the look of the game changes when it’s time for Free Spins. This time you’re actually allowed inside the tent, which seems to be where the real action takes place.
With all the Wilds and the extra big multipliers sitting up top, I find this part of the game quite exciting.
Another Bonus Game
There’s more than one bonus game in this game and it’s time to talk about the second one. You can see certain letters attached to some of the symbols. If you can get the five needed to spell the word B-O-N-U-S, you’ll trigger the bonus game.
Watch the word spell out on the screen and just sit back and wait to see what happens next.
During my test run, my three potential multipliers were 2x, 5x and 10x. With a bit of luck you can have a shot at 500x during Free Spins.
Classic Red Cups
You can see the classic red plastic cups are in play here and your task is to pick one of them and it will reveal your multiplier.
I was lucky enough to get 3 chances at this bonus game. The first two times I picked the lowest 2x. Eventually on my third attempt, I managed to pick the cup who was hiding the bigger 10x.
3 Clown Monty II – Pass or Play?
Just because it’s a circus theme slot doesn’t guarantee there will be a lot happening. I have been naive enough to believe that plenty of times before. Not only is 3 Clown Monty II a great looking game with fantastic graphics, it’s also packing some heat in terms of fun features.
I found that every spin is more exciting than a normal game because anything can happen. You might score the scatters, gorilla man might suck on his cigar a little extra leading to a bigger multiplier OR you could end up on a spelling bee and get to the bonus round.
I have no problem whatsoever recommending you giving 3 Clown Monty II a chance. There’s no secret that it takes a lot for me to really like a game but this one managed to turn me into a fan.
