AC Slots took advantage of the processing power in its new Axcess video platform to create a visual feast with “Freak Show.” Beautiful artwork reminiscent of a 19th century circus poster depicts strongmen, Siamese Twins, a snake lady, fire breathers and other circus side-show performers in an intense graphic experience.
The game itself, a five-reel, 25-line video slot on the Axcess 22V touch-enabled cabinet, employs the unique AC Slots game math that divides the percentages fairly between bonus events without detracting from the overall return. The Freak Show symbol is wild, substituting for all but scatters.
There are two bonus events, each played out in the high-definition graphics and great artwork and animation. The Matching Bonus, triggered by three, four or five Ring Master symbols, presents a screen of picks, and the object is to match three symbols to win the associated prize. There also is a star symbol hidden in the screen for an extra payout, and the Freak Show symbol is wild and substitutes for any symbol to make a match. Multiple matches are possible if the wild substitutes.
The level of prize goes up according to the number of symbols triggering the bonus—three scattered Ring Masters trigger a game with a bonus ranging from 10 to 110 times the total bet; four symbols, 15X to 170X; five symbols, 20X to 375X.
The free spin bonus is triggered by three, four or five Scatter Ticket symbols, for 10, 15 or 25 free games, respectively. All line wins pay double in the free games, and the free-spin round can be re-triggered within the feature.
