Who doesn’t love a trip to enjoy all the fun of the fair? Treasure Fair Slot, however, a slot from 888 with software powered by Random Logic, brings a somewhat darker feel to the usual jollity.
With five reels and three rows, it’s played over 25 fixed Paylines. The reels turn on the side of an old-fashioned caravan, as the rather gaunt and stern-looking ringmaster and his screeching monkey look on.
The background generally is pretty gloomy, but you can see a big wheel turning slowly in the distance, lit up against the night sky. Meanwhile, a progressive jackpot and an excellent bonus feature are here to pull you in as well.
How to play
There’s nothing too complicated in Treasure Fair Slot, with all the usual controls including an Autoplay function. Coin sizes in this game range from 5p to £500.
The circus performers make up the higher-value symbols and include a fire eater, strongman, fortune teller, clown and chuckling policeman. Meanwhile, as usual, the playing card icons 10, Jack, Queen, King and Ace represent the lower-paying values.
They do show up pretty frequently, however, and are worthwhile if you land several simultaneous winning combos.
Treasure Fair Slot special features
The Wild is just a symbol with ‘Wild’ on it in red, the bonus icon a Wheel of Fortune which you’ll only see displayed on Reels 2 through 4.
Wheel of Fortune
This one has some potentially attractive wins. Land three of the bonus icons on Reels 2, 3 and 4 to trigger it, and get the chance to turn the Wheel of Fortune to decide which of five bonuses to play, and with which multiplier.
The round is based on the five characters described above, and you just choose one of the symbols displayed to show your prize/multiplier.
When the exploding Wild symbol appears on Reel 3, it generates two actions. Firstly, there will be two to four Wilds anywhere on the reels. Secondly, players will get between one and three free spins with these sticky Wilds.
You have the option to gamble any win (although this doesn’t apply to the progressive jackpot). Simply click on Double Up to play a ‘heads or tails’ round against the circus monkey, in which the name of the game is choosing the right outcome to walk away with twice your cash. Use it after each win and grab a maximum of £100,000.
Return to Player (RTP)
This is certainly not great in Treasure Fair Slot, at just under 95% (94.82%). However, it is offset by the progressive jackpot, shown in the top right-hand corner of your screen and which offers a chance to win at random with every spin. (As ever, the greater your stake, the greater your chances of winning.)
The theme on Treasure Fair Slot is consistent in terms of music and animations, so the design in itself is enough to hold interest as it whisks you away to a different, slightly dark universe. Apart from that, the bonus features seem to launch pretty easily, and the game is relatively profitable as well as being good fun to play.
