Choi’s Travelling Show is a 5 reel, 243 ways to slot from Playtech. Available to play from 60p a spin on all devices, the Chinese circus comes to town in this visually stunning offering. With all symbols stacked, it has a superb free spins feature where you choose your free spins/stacked symbol combination for death-defying wins.

Visually, Choi’s Travelling Show is 1 of the best-looking slots I’ve come across – set in an Asian circus where animal lanterns hang from above, symbols on the reels include low value playing cards (A, K, Q, J and 10) as well as 4 animals. They include tortoises, dragons, birds and a weird tiger fish – the latter pays 50 coins.

50 coins may seem a little low but all symbols in this game appear stacked (as well as singular) for bigger wins. The way you form winning combinations is by land 2 or 3 or more of the same symbol on adjacent reels (i.e. anywhere on reels 1, 2 and 3) rather than on traditional paylines.

Choi is the wild symbol and this ringmaster can also land on all reels both stacked and as a single symbol – he substitutes for all symbols (bar the scatter). If you manage to get 5 wilds for example, you will get 100 coins. Remember – landing stacked will dramatically increase your winning potential.

The other symbol to look out for is the bullseye target – this is the scatter which also appears stacked. If you get 6 or more simultaneously on a spin, you will activate Choi’s Travelling Show feature. This is a free spins round where you choose from 5 free spins and stacked symbol options. You can get up to 11 free spins with a low value symbol stacked to 5 free spins with the highest value tiger fish stacked:

  • 11 free spins with the tortoise stacked
  • 9 free spins with the dragon stacked
  • 6 free spins with the bird stacked
  • 5 free spins with the tiger fish stacked

The 5th option is Choi’s Random Super Choice where you will receive only 3 free spins but the Choi wild symbol appearing stacked throughout. Furthermore, you can retrigger the feature giving you 22 free spins with the tortoise stacked to 6 free spins with the Choi wild stacked.

I would always opt for the highest value symbol being stacked (in this case, the wild) even though it can give you a maximum of 6 free spins. This is because the wild is worth much more than the other symbols and can lead to huge wins if you get lots of them on the reels for just 1 free spin. Oh, it’s a medium to high variance game.

Visually superb and with a potentially lucrative free spins feature, Choi’s Travelling Show is 1 of Playtech’s better Asian themed offerings in my opinion. I also recommend you try Playtech’s Pirate Empress which gives you 6 free spins and wild multiplier options with up to 56 free spins or wild multipliers up to 88x.
