Step inside a horrific circus if you dare, because scary characters await with their blood spilling props and tools. At first sight you think this is a regular circus-themed slot but already after the first spin you will realise that it is actually a nightmare on 5 reels 50 paylines.
The main protagonists are the Jugglenaut, clearly inspired by the Marvel’s comic book character Juggernaut and the terrifying laughing face of a clown. The rest of the symbols include an axe, spiked ball and chain saw and other torture tools.
Thanks to the brilliant graphics this nightmare seems even more realistic. Fortunately, the spooky characters are there to reward you, so if you manage to face your fears, the prizes can go up to a whopping 2,500,000 coins on a single spin.

How to Play It
Juggernaut presents a 5×3 reel layout on stage of a circus and it features a lot of options for the players to customise their play.
It is a good thing for those who like to have every aspect of the game controlled, but it will definitely be tiring for those who just like to hit the spin button. Before playing you have to set the coin value which ranges from 0.01 to 10, bet level and number of active paylines.
After that you will be ready to spin the horrific reels. The mean-looking fire juggler called Jugglenaut will appear as Wild symbol to replace any of the regular symbols and it pays 4,000 credits for five of a kind.
The regular game symbols are not so regular after all. Get prepared to see axes, chain saw, spiked ball and a smiley-face weight wrapped with barbed wire. The chain saw pays the most of all the regular symbols, 1,000 credits for five of a kind. You will be relieved to see good old playing cards symbols adorned in circus style as low value icons.
The Scatter is the scariest picture of all featuring a clown with what appears to be blood on his face. Despite his scary appearance you will be waiting for this guy to land on reels because it triggers the main bonus round and at the same times it returns your bet 100 times for five of a kind.
Now, you might expect some terrible and unpredictable features in the bonus department, but the reality is completely different. The Bonus game comes down to regular Free Spins. However, there will be a couple of additions to spice things up but don’t expect anything spectacular.
First of all, you will need at least three Scatters to activate the Free Spins round. You stand to win between 3 and 25 Free Spins which are at the mercy of Jugglenaut. Before the free play starts, a tattooed girl will appear with a Multiplier Wheel.
She will spin the wheel and add a 2x, 3x, 4x or 5x multiplier to your Free Spins. If you are so lucky to land three or more clown faces again on the reels the Free Spins round will be activated again.
The game promises a jackpot prize of up to $2,500,000 on any spin. This provides enough of a motivation to overcome your fears and join the nightmare circus.
The top paying symbol is the main protagonist Jugglenaut who pays 4,000 coins for five of a kind, while the Clown Scatter will return your stake 100 times. With the help of Free Spins and a multiplier of up to 5x you stand to win big in this dark circus affair.
It is always nice to see a bold approach to slot design and we must say that Jugglenaut is unnervingly original. High-definition graphics and brilliantly designed characters definitely make this a memorable slot that will not go unnoticed.
However those with a weaker stomach might want to skip this spinner. On the other hand it is not as original when it comes to features relying only on Free Spins and multipliers. The only thing that might tempt you to stick with this spooky charade is the jackpot of $2,500,000.
