How to play Cirque du ChevalClick here for a print friendly version
It’s a fantastic and magical world that players step into when exploring the game action of Cirque du Cheval. French for “circus horse,” the slot machine game features extravagant animals and golden marquees straight out of an old-fashioned amusement park. The array of high-value symbols includes several fantasy circus animals, including a frog poised to leap, a giant rabbit and a colorful sea monster. There also are numbers and letters along with a Cirque du Cheval logo that serves as a wild. There are 40 possible paylines in the game, which appear on four lines on five reels. The carousel symbol on reel five in conjunction with a stack of four symbols on reel one activates the carousel feature. During this time, the reels shift to the right up to four times. A stack of matching ticket to ride symbols on reel one, when combined with a carousel symbol on reel five triggers a free games feature, also shifting the reels to the right.
There is no shortage of game action on Cirque du Cheval, thanks to the 40 total lines of play. Gaming starts when players select the number of lines they want to play and the number of credits they’d like to play per line. Both selections can be adjusted at the bottom of the screen using the plus and minus boxes. Each alteration to the paylines shows live on the screen above. The total number of credits bet per spin is shown in the total bet box, and players spin the reels by clicking on the green start button. When the reels stop, any winning series of symbols will be highlighted with flashing boxes.
Winning combinations are paid out from left to right with the exception of scatter symbols, which can appear anywhere on the reels. Players can choose whether to bank their winnings or try to increase them with the gamble feature. In this side game, players try to predict whether an electronically selected playing card will be black or red. A correct guess results in a doubling of the staked credits, but an incorrect selection will eliminate the stakes. The Cirque du Cheval wild symbol, the carousel symbol and the ticket to ride symbol all trigger additional winnings or options for side games. The free games feature can include 12, 16 or 20 free games depending on the number of ticket symbols appear on the reels. With 40 paylines played at a maximum bet, there is the potential for significant winning with each spin. That makes Cirque du Cheval an enticing gaming option for high rollers.
This carousel-themed slot machine is equipped with an autoplay feature, with which players can play the same bet repeatedly without clicking the start button each time. Players should note that the gamble option is disengaged while in autoplay mode. The complete paytable, along with general game rules, can be accessed at the bottom of the screen. Players also can choose between a full screen for more realistic gaming or a small screen. A mute button silences noise from spinning reels and winning combos.
