Multiplier Wilds

Play’n GO carries on the Multiplier Wilds Feature seen previously in the original. During any random spin, Wild symbols can land on any reel, substituting for all High and Low-paying symbols.

When the Multiplier Meter activates above the reel set in the base game, Wilds can transform into a x2, x3, or x5 Multiplier Wild, chosen at random. However, in Free Spins, Wilds can have a Multiplier value of up to x50.

All wins formed using Multiplier Wilds will be automatically multiplied by the current Multiplier value shown on the Wild symbol. More than one Multiplier Wild on a win line will multiply the win by the Multipliers displayed on the Wilds.

Bonus Prize Pick

During gameplay, certain symbols will be overlapped with B.O.N.U.S letters. Landing one of each letter on each reel to spell out the word ‘Bonus’ will trigger the Bonus Prize Pick Feature.

Once the Bonus Prize Pick feature is active via the base game, 3 red cups with a Bonus Prize of 2x, 5x, and 10x will be shuffled at random under the cups. Pick 1 of 3 cups to reveal your winning Bonus Prize. Triggering the Bonus Prize Pick Feature in Free Spins will award a Bonus Prize of 20x, 100x, and 500x your bet at random.

3 Clown Monty II Free Spins

Landing 3, 4, or 5 Ticket Scatters in the base game triggers the Free Spins round, awarding 5, 8, and 10 Free Spins respectively.

Before the Free Spins round begins, you will get to choose between 1 of 3 Cards to determine the number of Walking Wilds active during the round.

Walking Wilds are sticky symbols that walk around reels 2, 3, and 4 during each Free Spin. Walking Wilds substitute for all other symbols except Scatters. The Multiplier Meter is always active during this time, activating a random Multiplier value of x2, x3, x5, or x50 which is then applied to all Walking Wilds in view.

3 Clown Monty II: Our Verdict

3 Clown Monty was a release that was slightly unexpected, at least from the typically upbeat crew at Play’n GO. Do they fit in with a happy-go-lucky cast that includes the Reactoonz, Hugo, the cheerful Bees of Honey Rush and the enigmatic Sparky & Shortz? No, but we love them anyway. We and many others appreciated these comedic reprobates, and a sequel is very welcome.

Of course, gameplay and potential contributed to the success of 3 Clown Monty as much as its entertaining theme did, but how does it do in that regard? The Bonus Prize Pick proved to be quite engaging, and the base game didn’t feel at all monotonous. Free Spins in 3 Clown Monty II proved to be very capable, yet it’s not as capable on paper as its predecessor. At 10,000x the bet, it’s half as capable as the first, though Play’n GO aren’t the best at putting their money where their mouth is with max wins, and we doubt that anyone has ever hit 20,000x on the original.

Overall, 3 Clown Monty II doesn’t reinvent the original in an overly significant way, but it’s still a day at the circus that you wouldn’t forget.
