1. What inspired the selection of clowns and a gorilla as the main mascots for "3 Clown Monty II"?
Like all of our games, the story and characters are as important as the mechanics. In 3 Clown Monty II, we have a circus theme, so we built the game around those characters. They’re instantly recognizable as circus characters. The story behind the game is following the Monty brothers’ failure in establishing their travelling circus, and so they have now moved to Las Vegas to team up with BIT-E the Gorilla, the brains of the entire operation, with the hopes of establishing a big show.
2. The clowns in "3 Clown Monty II" play a significant role. Can you explain the choice behind their emotional expressions?
The clowns have developed emotionally since the first 3 Clown Monty game! The emotions represent the three clowns in popular culture - the Happy Clown, the Sad Clown, and the less-seen Angry/Scary clown. We think they’re relatable in their facial impressions.
3. How does the setting of Las Vegas contribute to the game's circus concept, and why was it chosen?
Las Vegas is synonymous with entertainment. The story of the brothers travelling to Vegas to try and hit the big time in the entertainment industry is very recognizable and even relatable. Players love the idea of Vegas, and playing this game is the next best thing to being there!
4.What was the specific goal behind the visual elements and music in "3 Clown Monty II"?
We wanted to capture the atmosphere of the circus, which will be familiar to so many people. The slightly careless, unpolished rhythm, gives off a carefree vibe, while also reflecting the failure that seems to haunt the Monty brothers everywhere they go.
5. What are the differences between '3 Clown Monty II' and the original "3 Clown Monty”?
The max win potential has decreased - it’s now 10,000x from 20,000x. In 3 Clown Monyu re-triggering the free spins would give extra spins called “Monty Spins”, during which any wild landing would remain ‘sticky’ until the end of the Monty Spins” feature. In 3 Clown Monty 2, the free spins also start with the player selecting 1 out of 3 cards.
But instead of awarding different numbers of spins as in 3 Clown Monty, in 3 Clown Monty 2, you get 1,2 or, 3 walking wilds that remain throughout the free spins feature and change position between each spin. On top of that, we’ve added a bonus round awarding an instant prize of up to 50x in the base game, and 500x during the free spins.
6. Are there any plans for further extensions or sequels to the "3 Clown Monty”?
Certainly! 3 Clown Monty is an important series for Play’n GO.
