Cirque Du Soleil: Kooza Slots Machine

Circuses have been an old and forgotten tradition for years, many wanting to expunge questionable animal handling practices and scary-looking clowns completely from the plant. But one brand has not only reinvigorated crowds to return to the (human animals only) circus and elevating the art of clowning from the creepy to the courageous. If you have seen a Cirque Du Soleil performance live you know the sensual music and the heart-pumping feats these performances encapsulate.

Kooza was originally performed by Cirque du Soleil in 2007, after being written and directed by a clown in a former Cirque du Soleil’s production, name David Shiner.

Bally Technology’s Cirque du Soleil Kooza  slot game invites players to discover the electrifying whimsical world of the French-Canadian born cirque and then tosses in a lot of very mysterious ways to win. The Kooza slots machine does an excellent job of capturing the heart and spirit of Cirque Du Soleil and distilling it down to a quirky little slot game.

Set your desired bet, anywhere from twenty cents per spin, up to whopping $400. Cirque du Soleil: Kooza slots machine offers 40 fixed paylines that pay left to right, starting from the reel furthest to the left. Not unlike most games, three of a kind is the minimum combo for a payout.

Welcome to the Show

Cirque du Soleil Kooza slot is as colorful, acrobatically flexible and wonder-inducing as the live event by the same franchise name. There’s no clowning here, for those of you who have a fear of clowns please know that the Cirque Du Soleil theme is so much more than that. Expect to see elegant performers who are more like acrobats than the face-painting children’s party entertainers. The electronic action takes place under the spotlights of a vast circus tent on your browser. The reels are as center stage as ever, surrounded by a rainbow-bright command bar with a Cirque-styled performer to one side.

The high-value symbols on the reels are all theme related and feature four elements from the live stage show—”The Wheel of Death”, “Skelly”, “Charivari” and “the Innocent”) along with two masks. The scatter symbol is a kite with the word “bonus” on top. The wild symbol is the word “wild” on a pink with gold wrap background which substitutes for all other symbols except the scatter or the box symbol. The red box is a very special scatter symbol that we go into detail about later.

The inspiration for the artwork and symbols have some noticeable graphic novels, comic books, Gustav Klimt inspirations, as well as a few nods to Indian and Eastern European art.

Feature acts

The mystery stacked reels feature allows for one symbol to appear stacked on the reels during each spin; a different symbol will be able to appear stacked for each spin.

The red box is a special scatter symbol and landing three of them during a spin triggers the box pick bonus where you must choose between three prize boxes. Each box seems to hide a decent mystery win; we got a cash prize the first time and a bonus wheel feature the next. Instant cash prizes are between $6 and $100.

The bonus wheel feature is triggered by landing three scatter symbols on reels 1, 3 and 5 (or, like us, by choosing it at random in the box pick bonus) and allows you to spin the wheel of fortune to claim your prize. It also gives you 2x the prize amount of the triggering bet. There are four distinct ways to win with the Cirque Du Soleil Kooza wheel of fortune and they are as follows:

  1. The big cash prize
  2. Trickster free games: 10 free spins during which the Trickster may appear and upgrade ordinary symbols to one of the four characters.
  3. Jackpot wheel: 1 spin of the progressive jackpot wheel to win one of the prizes, named “Tres Magnifique”, “Colossal”, “Grand” and “Mini”.
  4. Wheel Of Death: 7-12 free spins with a win multiplier of between 2x and 4x. Land two or more ‘More Free Games’ symbols for up to 15 more free spins.

The Tres Magnifique Jackpot can get up to insane $200,000 if you happen to place the maximum bet of $400. But you don’t have to be a high roller to be fetted with cash and bonuses. We received more than our fill of wins during the bonus features—thanks to the plentiful freebies and multipliers—and it helped us make our games last much longer than if we were to bet the max and lose right away.

The bottom line

Bally should be congratulated on a job well done, balancing on a high wire between creating an engaging online slot game and perfecting the presence of the live performance franchise they are paying homage to.

We agree unanimously that Cirque du Soleil Kooza looks like no other game that has come before it. It’s eye-catching, imagination revving, and time-gobbling if you let it be. Don’t be clown-shy about this game because once you see it up close and in person, you’ll see how innocuous the artwork is.

It’s the most exciting and interesting show on the planet and demands to have a slot game that matches its intensity. Well, Kooza surely does even with its medium variance slot status and 96.00% RTP. The sensational features combined with the possibility of winning one of the jackpots makes the game very lucrative for lucky players.

set the desired bet, which can go from $0.20 per spin, up to whopping $400. The slot offers 40 fixed pay-lines that pay left to right, starting from the leftmost reel, with three of a kind being the minimum for landing payouts.
