funhouse slotFunhouse is a 3-reel classic slot by Microgaming which has 5 paylines and can be played instantly in-browser or downloaded on almost any computer as part of the company’s popular casino software. The theme of the game revolves around fun fairs and amusement parks, but most of all, around the curious, whimsical fun houses you would often find there.

Microgaming, which is one of the leading developers of online casino software, designed Funhouse as a classic slot game which has the typical structure and layout players know well from many other Microgaming releases. It has 3 reels with 3 rows of symbols on them, but unlike the most traditional slots which have just one payline, this game features 5 lines – three horizontal lines, as well as two paylines which run diagonally left to right. Of course, there is a huge clown in the middle of the game screen whose mouth looks just like the entry leading to the mysteries and surprise of the funhouse.

Whether this slot game will be able to genuinely startle players or not, it will certainly amuse and engage them with the lovely Wild symbol that has been added. The top payout of 5,000 coins is also very attractive, especially when you consider the minimum bet for winning it is only 1.25 credits in your preferred currency. Coin size can be adjusted from 0.25 to 5.00 credits and any number of lines may be activated (up to 5). The minimum and maximum bets per spin are, therefore, 0.25 and 25.00 credits, respectively.

Special Symbols

Bar symbols, which are typical for Microgaming’s classic slots, make up the majority of the icons on the reels. Players need to match 3 single, double or triple bar symbols on any of the active paylines in order to get a win, but they can also mix these three icons in one combination. Of course, the prize, in this case, will be less attractive. The other basic symbol is the candy pack. This bag full of sweet treats brings a payout of 80 coins (80x the coin size) if you are lucky enough to land 3 candy icons on an active payline.

The logo of the Funhouse game serves as both the highest paying symbol and a Wild icon at the same time. If 3 logos land on the fifth payline, the player receives the jackpot of 5,000 coins. In fact, the Wild logo pays off considerable larger sums on any of the 5 lines than any other symbol in the game. Also, this icon replaces all other symbols in winning combinations, which makes getting a payout an easier task.

Bonus Games and Features

Just like the majority of classic slots, Funhouse does not have any bonus games or additional features that may make it a little more interesting. What it does have, however, is 5 separate jackpot payouts which are given for landing 3 Wilds on the 5 different paylines. Typically, players who bet on similar classic slots have one, two, or sometimes even 3 jackpots available, so this fun fair-inspired game actually gives more opportunities for winning big.

Another very convenient feature for players who prefer faster games is the AutoPlay. This function can be found in the bottom half of the screen in the box which says Expert. Players can choose 5 or 10 automatic spins of the reels with bet size and active lines adjusted beforehand. Almost all classic slots by Microgaming share the AutoPlay feature, so most players should already be familiar with it.

One of the specifics of the Funhouse slot is that is can be played with only 1 coin of various denominations. But as it has 5 paylines, enabling them all effectively multiplies the bet size by 5 times as if the player places 5 coins on a single line. For this reason, it is important to adjust your bet size in accordance with your gambling budget and make sure you will not deplete your balance with a few spins.

Conclusion

Funhouse is a fairly entertaining and quite an interesting classic slot with a colorful, easy to use interface and a nice theme that would appeal to many players. Playing it almost feels like you are visiting a travelling carnival, although it cannot be compared to the immersive experience of modern video slots which have much more advanced graphics and themed imagery.

Experienced slot players should have noticed by now that in this offering by Microgaming, most combinations are less lucrative than they are in most games. This is valid only for the basic symbols and when it comes to the Wild logo, it is really an exciting icon. It is not only the Wild in the slot, but it also gives tempting payouts to lucky players. Still, the expected returns offered by the Funhouse slot game are calculated at only 92.23%, which is rather low, compared to the payback percentage of most online slots.
