Bally Technologies Cirque Du Soleil Amaluna Video Slot Review

Cirque Du Soleil Amaluna: Demo

Another video based on the all-conquering Cirque du Soleil stage show is Cirque Du Soleil Amaluna. It’s a 5 reel, 40 payline video slot from Bally that’s packed full of features including jackpots of up to 2,500 times your bet and raining wilds that can land in the base game. Trigger the bonus round and you’ll win free spins with extra wilds or expanding multipliers, a pick me round or cash prizes. Play on your PC, tablet or mobile from between 40p and £100 per spin.

The design here is pretty high spec. As well as lower value royals, you’ll see red and blue flowers, a fan, a mask and a woman in pink. The most lucrative symbol is the lady in blue. Land 5 of these in combination for a payout of 7.5 times your bet. Helping your winning chances is the wild which can appear on all 5 reels and replace all of the standard symbols. It also offers payouts of up to 15 times your bet.

If you like plenty of variety from your features, then you shouldn’t be disappointed with Cirque Du Soleil Amaluna. There are plenty of extras to get stuck into, starting with a couple that can land in the base game:

  • Jackpot feature – 3 or more scatters on the same base game spin triggers a special prize. This starts with an award equal to your total bet for the minimum 3. Land 11 or 12 and you’ll pocket a mighty 2,500 times your bet.
  • Mystery Wild feature – on any base game spin, you could see between 4 and 10 extra wilds drop onto the reels. A new payout calculation follows with the extra wilds in position.

Cirque Du Soleil Amaluna also comes with a selection of triggered features. Land 3 bonus symbols on the same spin and you’ll get a spin of the Bonus Wheel feature. The following goodies are on offer depending on where the pointer lands:

  • Cash Wheel feature – if the pointer falls on a $ sign, you’ll win a cash prize of between 5 and 60 times your bet.
  • Meteor Wilds Free Games feature – a payout equal to your stake is made. You’ll then play 5 free spins. On each of them, between 4 and 12 extra wilds are added.
  • Moon Goddess Free Games feature – another 1x payout is made here. On offer are 7 free spins with a starting multiplier of 1x. Look out for the moon symbol which is wild and can appear on reels 2, 3 and 4 throughout these free spins. Each moon can award 1, 2 or 3 more free spins, a multiplier boost of 1x, 2x or 3x or a cash award of up to 62.5 times your bet. Multipliers can reach up to 10x here which can give your wins a real leg up.
  • Pick Bonus feature – in this multi-level pick me round, you’ll be offered the choice of 12 feathers, behind which lie cash prizes. The more levels you work through the bigger the potential awards. Prizes can reach up to 8, 15, 30 or 50 times your bet on levels 1, 2, 3 or 4 respectively.
  • Respin and Win feature – you’ll receive between 25 and 125 times your bet as well as an extra spin of the Bonus Wheel.

There are plenty of super simple stripped back video slots that offer little in the way of features. Cirque Du Soleil Amaluna is just the opposite. If you like plenty of variety, then this offers loads. Those features can deliver a decent punch too. The extra wilds and multipliers can make the free spin rounds well worth hitting. Even the pick me round offers a little more variety than usual.

Cirque du Soleil has wowed audiences around the world. Cirque Du Soleil Amaluna probably won’t achieve similar global domination. Well designed and offering a cracking range of extras though, it’s a perfectly playable and entertaining title. This is one performance we don’t think you’ll want to miss. By the way, this is Bally’s 2nd video slot dedicated to the stage show – Cirque Du Soleil Kooza is worth looking into.
