Most circuses are fun and exciting, they let you experience something that can’t really be experienced anywhere else. They’re full of life and energy and make you smile and laugh. Well, this circus isn’t like most circuses. Here, the clowns seem more like mafia bosses, the equipment is all patched up and they don’t seem all that jovial, well except for the clown car it has a big smile on its face.
3 Clown Monty is an interesting take on the circus and the joker theme in general, it’s obvious Play’n GO wanted to try something a little bit different and something very much unique.
We’ll pull back the curtains and find out what makes this circus interesting, fun and just a little bit scary so you can decide if it’s worth putting on your list.
Theme & Symbols
The theme of this title is serious circus. Usually clowns are supposed to entertain kids, not show gorillas how to smoke cigars. That’s the type of show that these performers are putting on. It sure is a unique take on the theme but how does it work in a video slot format?
The grid of this title isn’t anything special, it’s a basic grid with dividing lines separating the reels. The mixture of brown and bronze works well for portraying a somewhat colourless clown posse. The background seems to be the back of a van that has its backdoors open on the circus tent where these individuals most likely perform. The gorilla pokes his head out near the top left of the grid keeping a watchful eye on the goings on of the grid.
While the overall presentation isn’t the best that’s ever come out from Play’n GO it isn’t the worst either. The look and feel might fall a little flat that doesn’t take too much away from the actual game itself.
Starting off with the low-paying icons we have playing card suits. You’ll be seeing patched up Hearts, Diamonds, Clubs and Spades appear quite often as you spin the reels.
Next are the higher paying symbols, as much as you might not want to, keep an eye out for the different clowns with Red, Blue and Green hair, the Clown Car and a Spring Loaded Pie along with a few others.
The clown trio of the title represents this game’s Scatter symbol. Landing enough of these during a single spin will trigger a special gameplay feature.
The somewhat civilised gorilla that smokes his cigars is the Wild symbol. He can substitute any other common icon in the game. Not only that but he can appear with a multiplier to boost the winnings he helps create.

Bonus spins can be re-triggered and if they do they become Monty Spins. During Monty Spins all Multiplier Wilds that land become sticky
