Cirque du Soleil Amaluna
Get ready for a show of mystique in the second branded Cirque Du Soleil slot from Bally Technologies. After releasing Cirque Du Soleil Kooza in 2016, the provider took Cirque Du Soleil Amaluna as their inspiration for a video slot packed with exhilarating features and fixed jackpots of up to 2,500 times your bet. The world-class artists will take you into a mesmerizing world of goddesses with Jackpot Scatter pays and a Bonus Wheel with four different prizes.
Cirque Du Soleil Amaluna is a video slot with five reels, four rows and 40 fixed pay lines. Wins are awarded for three to five matching symbols on a line from left to right only. Experience the unique world of Amaluna on desktop or mobile from 0.40 to 100 credits per spin. The game has medium volatility with an RTP of 96.85%.
The story of Amaluna follows a group of sailors who end up on an island governed by goddesses after a storm sank their ship. The vast sea at sunset is the background to an intricate game window while one of the goddesses stands to the right. A total of nine jackpot displays tower on top of the reels. A part of the original show soundtrack is the main audio and is only interrupted by the usual reel and win count noises.
The pay symbols start at the low end with the card royals from J to A, awarding 0.75x your bet for a single five of a kind. They are followed by show props – blue and red flowers, fans and masks. Hit five on a line to win 1.5x to 3x your stake. The red and blue goddesses round off the paytable with wins for a 5OAK coming in at 6x and 7.5x your bet respectively.
The goddesses’ shield is the wild and top-paying symbol, substituting for all regular pay symbols and awarding 15x your bet when five land across the reels. A boldly coloured peacock feather is the bonus symbols while the show logo acts as the jackpot scatter.
Cirque du Soleil Amaluna Slot Features
Bally has gone to great length to include a flurry of features that partially resemble acts from the immensely successful show. It starts in the base game with the random Mystery Wild feature which can trigger on any spin to turn 4 to 12 reel positions into wild symbols. Win evaluations are performed after all wilds have been placed.
The reel show will heat up with the Bonus Wheel which is triggered when you hit three bonus symbols anywhere on the reels in one spin. Should you have only two in view then the game might add the missing third scatter at random. A wheel with eight segments appears, each displaying one of the possible prizes that can be won.
- Cash Prize: You will get one spin on a separate cash wheel where you can win from 5x to 60x your total bet
- Respin & Win: awards a coin win from 5x to 125x your bet plus one spin on a separate wheel where you will win one of the three bonus features. The best option in our opinion as you get a coin win and a guaranteed feature.
- Pick Bonus Game: A screen with 12 peacock feathers appears where you can make up to four picks with increasingly higher coin wins of 8x, 15x, 30x and 50x your bet. Unveiling a “collect” sign will end the round. The maximum win for the game is 103x your total bet.
- Moon Goddess Free Spins: You’ll get 1x your bet and an initial seven free spins. Wild Moon symbols appear on reels two, three and four only. Each landing on a free spin will award one to three extra spins, a coin win of up to 62.50x your bet or increase the win multiplier by x1, x2 or x3, up to a maximum of x10.
- Meteor Wilds Free Spins: awards 1x your bet and five free spins, which cannot be retriggered. Four to twelve Wild Meteor symbols will fall on to the reels on every free spin.
The main act of this special reel show are the fixed jackpots. There are a total of nine, yes, indeed nine with the lowest paying just 1x your total stake and the highest a huge 2,500x your stake. To win a jackpot, you will need to hit minimum three Amaluna show logo scatters anywhere on the reels. The top prize is awarded when 11 or more scatters land in one spin.
It always represents quite a challenge for a developer to transfer the story and atmosphere of a hugely successful movie or sow such as Cirque Du Soleil Amaluna to a set of slot reels. On this occasion, Bally has got the balance right between the Amaluna storyline and entertaining slot features as well as big win potential.
