3 Clown Monty: Slot Overview

Horror writer Stephen King has quite a lot to answer for. As well as spooking readers for decades with his best-selling novels, he also bears part of the responsibility for vilifying those painted-faced, red nose-wearing entertainers better known as clowns. Thanks to the shapeshifting monster called Pennywise in 'It', clowns are just as likely to provoke a frisson of dread as laughter in response to their comedic antics. Developer Play'n GO's circus-themed slot 3 Clown Monty largely avoids evoking feelings of dread, but its characters do i12nspire a certain amount of pathos all the same.

Along with the wistful expressions, 3 Clown Monty's back story manages to pull on a few heartstrings as well. In short, the Clown Show featured here never manages to stay in one town long before being driven away for creeping out kids. On the bright side, the motley crew's clowning skills might not be up to scratch, but the game packs hefty winning potential. It all takes place on a 5-reel, 3-row game grid, providing 10 fixed paylines to land winning combinations across.


Right away, you can see this circus experience isn't as extravagant a show as others Play'n GO has put on. This big top experience is a bit more run-down, a touch shabby, as if the participants would rather be at home sucking back cold ones contemplating their glory days than trying to make strangers smile. Deeper psychological emotions swirl beneath the surface of 3 Clown Monty than in similarly themed games like the Golden Ticket range.

Entrance to the show is possible on any device where bets from 10 p/c to £/€100 per spin may be set. Clowning might be for kids, but 3 Clown Monty is aimed squarely at motivated gamblers looking to take on a highly volatile (9/10) math model for the chance to win big. As always, be mindful of RTP before tangling with these clowns, which varies from 96.23% at the upper end of the scale to 94.23% or lower, depending on the market.

Wins hit when three or more matching symbols land adjacent to each other from the leftmost reel. There are 9 regular symbols to work with - 4 card suits, then cream pies, clown mobiles, and 3 clown performers. The clowns are considered premium symbols, worth 10 to 50 times the stake for a five-of-a-kind combo. Not sure why you would let a 160kg gorilla in a ruff called Bite-E near kids, but the clowns have roped him in anyway. In the game, Bite-E is the wild symbol, capable of substituting any regular paying symbol, and worth the same as the topmost premium tile.

3 Clown Monty: Slot Features


Bite-E is actually central to much of the special feature action in 3 Clown Monty. The first instance is during the base game when the Multiplier Meter becomes active. When it does, wilds become Multiplier Wilds bearing values of x2 to x25. Any wins the wild is a part of are increased by this amount.

One more symbol to look out for is the scatter, which has no value of its own but lands on any of the five reels - 2 in view triggers the Dealers Choice feature, while 3 or more scatters in view trigger free spins. Dealers Choice either adds another scatter symbol to the reels, or it adds 2 to 6 wilds. If the Multiplier Meter is active, then the extra added wilds can be Multiplier Wilds.

3 or more scatters kick off the bonus round via a pick-me style bonus feature where you win 5 to 12 free spins. During free spins, the Multiplier Meter is always active, and wilds are always Multiplier Wilds.

Play'n GO has also buried another feature within free spins called Monty Spins. Once again, a pick-me feature is triggered when 2 or more scatters are in view, awarding 4 to 9 Monty Spins. In Monty Spins, the active Multiplier Meter is fixed for the duration, and all Multiplier Wilds are sticky. At the end of Monty Spins, there is a chance to win +3 extra Monty Spins or return to regular free spins.

3 Clown Monty: Slot Verdict

Play'n GO's special free spins within regular free spins concept has been pushed to its limit in 3 Card Monty producing larger than normal results. Play'n GO has a few of these sorts of games under their belt now, with the Russian Doll effect appearing in slots like The Green Knight or Cat Wilde and the Lost Chapter. However, neither of those two games used it as effectively as 3 Clown Monty does. Needless to say, if you can make it all the way to trigger Monty Spins, then there is a good chance a solid return is coming your way.

Until reaching that level, like a few of these simply designed Play'n GO slots we've reviewed recently, there can be a fair amount of waiting around during the warm-up act for something to happen. The Multiplier Wild available in the base game is quite a good one though. However, if patience is paired with good fortune, then 3 Clown Monty is capable of blowing right up during free spins – especially if the sticky Multiplier Wild feature comes into play. Nesting of features has been used to good effect in previous Play'n GO slots, yet not quite as good as it can get in 3 Clown Monty, where wins as impressive as 20,000 times the stake are up for grabs.

While the features are not brand spanking new, 3 Clown Monty thrusts them to levels not typically seen from this studio. The theme is a little on the creepy side, and if you fail to get a positive financial result, the morose looks on some of the clown's faces aren't exactly conciliatory. However, scoring a good round of Monty Spins or even a decent Bite-E payout in the base game would make even the glummest looking clown crack a smile.
