3 Clown Monty by Play‘n GO, slot review

Clowns, love em’ or hate em’. Let’s not clown around too much and jump right into this 3 Clown Monty slot review. I don’t know who from Play’n Go was forced to join the circus after they released this crazy game, but I’m betting someone had to.

Before getting to all the juicy details, I must say that one thing that I really love about Play’n GO is that they’re very consistent when it comes to producing great looking slots and 3 Clown Monty is just one of their latest titles that confirm this rule.

In this slot go can expect to find all the elements I love packed into a single game. Play two-layered free spins with multipliers wilds AND multiplier sticky wilds. And with a very high volatility you should know that 3 Clown Monty has the capacity to pay out massive wins.

3 Clown Monty – What you need to know

Every slot comes with pros and cons, including 3 Clown Monty, and I thought we’d get into these first. I’ve been a slot fanatic for years and want you to get the best experience possible when you play any slot reviewed by me. Here’s what I think.


  • Retriggering free spins is always amazing, no matter what, and this slot is a rare treat in this department. Believe me!
  • Wilds are great. Wilds with multipliers are greater. Sticky wilds with multipliers are the greatest. You’ll see.
  • The RTP of 96.23% is really good for a high volatility slot.


  • 10 Fixed paylines feels a little outdated in today’s world of slots with Megaways.
  • Winning spins may feel few and far between.
  • You may need deep pockets before you take on these clowns.

3 Clown Monty – Theme and background

Thanks to Stephen King’s flesh-eating clown Pennywise from IT, these historical entertainers have been taking a bad rep for years. You have nothing to fear here though. The artwork on the clowns in 3 Clown Monty actually makes them look a bit more on the sad side. The only smiling clown you’ll find is the one on the scatter symbol.

I’m not too sure of what to make of the background. In a way it looks like someone parked a van in a dark ally and opened the backdoors. Still, it’s on top of the slot where’ll find one of the make-or-break features. It’s a gorilla smoking a massive cigar.

You’ll want to familiarize yourself with this massive simian because his tobacco habit is connected to the win multipliers. The bigger puffs he takes on his Cuban, the bigger your multiplier will be.

3 Clown Monty – Gameplay

Even though the base game in 3 Clown Monty is really simple. I wouldn’t care too much to be honest. I’m sure there are those who will disagree with me on this, but as far as I’m concerned, the base game is just a stretch of play you have to get through to get to the free spins.

The only thing to look out for here is the occasional multiplier wild, which can go as high as 25x, and the scatter symbol. If you hit two, you can either be awarded a third scatter (this is what you want) or a spreading wild feature.

3 Clown Monty – Free spins feature

When you hit three or more scatters you must pick one of three cards to reveal how many free spins you’ll get. The gorilla’s cigar will reveal a new wild multiplier before every spin, which is all fine and dandy, but this is not why you’re here…

Again, you’re looking for scatters and this time they will trigger monty spins. You only need two to get started. But first you have to pick a card again to see your number of spins. Here’s how it breaks down with scatters for both free spins and monty spins:

  • 3 Scatters = 5, 7, or 9 free spins
  • 4 Scatters = 7, 9, or 10 free spins
  • 5 Scatters = 9, 10, or 12 free spins

Once you’re in the free spins feature, you’re looking for scatters to trigger:

  • 2 Scatters = 4, 5, or 6 monty spins
  • 3 Scatters = 5, 6, or 7 monty spins
  • 4 Scatters = 6, 7, or 8 monty spins
  • 5 Scatters = 7, 8, or 9 monty spins

Here’s the trick. The multiplier you get from the gorilla will carry over to the monty spins. During monty spins all wilds are sticky and will remain in its locked position until you run out of spins. I don’t think I need to explain what the payout potential is when you can build paylines of 5 25x multiplier wilds…

I almost forgot. After your last monty spin, there’s a chance that you’ll get either three more spins or you’ll be taken back to the free spins feature to continue until you’re out of spins OR trigger monty spins again. Unfortunately, you have to start from scratch every time even if you had a super-sweet setup from previous monty spins.

Still, damn good free spins feature if you ask me.

3 Clown Monty – My verdict

If you’re in the mood for chasing super big wins and epic wins, than this is a great slot to play. But you’ll need patience and deep pockets. For real. Luck is not enough to win on 3 Clown Monty, you’ll really need to understand how to manage your bankroll and play responsibly.

You shouldn’t expect too much action during the base game. I normally set the game to autoplay 100 spins and stop if free spins are won or if my balance decrease by 50% of the amount I’ve decided to gamble with.
