Enjoy All the Fun of the Fair With 3 Clown Monty

Learn more about 3 Clown Monty, the online pokies machine from Play'n GO

People either love clowns or are terrified of them with nothing in between those two extremes. Play’n GO fall into the former camp judging by their online pokie 3 Clown Monty.

You know what to expect when it comes to Play’n GO machines. They look and sound good, play well, but often leave you thinking there is something missing that you cannot quite put your finger on. Does 3 Clown Monty buck this trend? Let us find out.

3 Clown Monty Fundamentals

3 Clown Monty by Play’n GO takes place on a traditional 5×3 layout. The game looks quite small on a computer monitor, and there is a lot of free space on your screen. We say free space but there is a giant cigar-smoking gorilla clown in the background. It is as weird as it sounds.

The game only has 10 win lines, which is very low by today’s standards. A lack of pay lines, an RTP of 96.23%, and a high volatility model means 3 Clown Monty can eat through your bankroll. Be aware that this machine has RTP ranges depending on the online casino you play at. Always opt for the highest RTP and, therefore, lowest house edge.

Bet sizes range from $0.10 per spin right up to $100, so there is something for everyone. The maximum possible payout per spin is an impressive 20,000x and that is the main lure here.

3 Clown Monty Symbols

You do not need to be a genius to figure out what the 3 Clown Monty symbols are mostly about. Clowns, of course! Three different coloured, rather creepy clowns, are the highest-value symbols. The red clown, in particular, is the richest, paying up to 50.00x for matching five.

A clown car and a cream cake are the game’s mid-tier symbols. The four playing card symbols are this poker machine’s low-value symbols.

Symbol Match 3 4 5
Red Clown 2.00x 5.00x 50.00x
Blue Clown 1.00x 2.50x 12.50x
Green Clown 1.00x 2.00x 10.00x
Car and Cake 0.50x 1.00x 5.00x
Spades and Hearts 0.30x 0.60x 2.00x
Diamonds and Clubs 0.20x 0.40x 1.00x

The cigar-smoking gorilla we mentioned earlier is called Bite-E. He acts as the wild symbol. Bite-E substitutes for all standard paying symbols, and pays out the same prizes as the Red Clown.

A trio of clowns represents the scatter symbol. Landing just two starts one feature, three starts the free spins round. More on those in a moment.

What Are The Game’s Features and Bonus Rounds?

3 Clown Monty has a number of features worth mentioning in this section. First, the Bite-E wilds can come with a multiplier attached, leading to more substantial wins. We did not hit a 25x multiplier, but someone will.

Landing two scatters triggers the Dealer’s Choice bonus. It either gives you a third scatter, or randomly places 2 to 6 wilds onto the reels. Those wilds can come with multipliers if the Multiplier Meter is active.

Three scatters anywhere on the board starts the free spins round. You receive between 5 and 12 free spins, the number determined from a Pick’em game. Wilds that land during the free spins round always come with a multiplier attached.

Monty Spins are where the biggest prizes lay in wait. Landing 2, 3, 4, or 5 scatters during the free spins round start the Monty Spins. You receive between 4 and 9 Monty Spins, again, determined by a pick-em game.

The multiplier meter fixes on one number through this round, plus all multiplier wilds you land turn sticky. This is the feature where you are most likely to hit the 20,000x maximum payout.


Remember how we said Play’n GO pokies often leave you feeling they could have offered more? 3 Clown Monty continues that unwanted trend. It was fun to play, even if the clowns are not to everyone’s taste, and the features are exciting. The base game is quite sterile, however, and those great bonus features few and far between.

We may have gotten unlucky and played the game when it did not want to play ball, resulting in lots of lowly, almost meaningless wins. We will give it another try at some point because it has the potential to pay huge sums.
