In March of 2022, Foxium produced a sequel to their popular slot machine The Great Albini, designed specifically for use in Microgaming’s virtual gambling establishments.
The game has a ‘Circus’ theme and is a sequel to our 2019 review hit, The Great Albini Slot.

Although it includes 5 reels, 4 rows, and 40 fixed paylines like other online slots, The Great Albini 2 takes a somewhat unusual approach.
This slot has a return to player percentage of 96.10 percent and a medium to high volatility.
This game has a wide betting range, from $0.20 to $24.00 each spin.
The minimum stake per spin on the enhanced version of the slot machine is 0.30 USD and the maximum is 36.00 USD, but the symbol odds and winning possibilities are also raised by 50.00%.
When compared to the first The Great Albini, in which an animated version of Albini stood on a stage that doubled as your gameboard, the sequel feels like a step down in terms of design and user interface.
Since The Great Albini 2 lacks these features and the gameboard is somewhat small on desktops, we can only conclude that it has been tailored for mobile devices at the expense of the presentation on laptops and desktops.
Coins are collected when the Money Gem icon appears on reels 1, 3, and 4. If a Collect icon lands on reel 5, you win whatever value was represented by the Money Gem icons. The payouts for the blue, violet, and red money gems are respectively 1-9, 10-12-15-20, and 25-40-50 times the wager, respectively. The multiplier for a collect symbol might range from 2x to 5x.
When three scatter symbols are present, a bonus function is activated. Reels 2, 3, and 4 include scatter symbols. The game starts out with the player being given three free spins. Each time a Bonus icon appears, the remaining spins counter is reset to zero. Money Gems, Albini Multipliers, and Lili Extra Spin symbols are the bonus icons.
To boost the chances of getting an Albini Multiplier or a Lili Extra Spin, use the Boost button in the bottom right of the screen. Your wager price has doubled.
While The Great Albini 2 is a good slot machine, it doesn’t live up to the standards set by its predecessor.
This slot no longer has the same allure as before due to a reduced gameboard and absence of engaging animations and graphics.
While the improvements and additions are appreciated, we believe that a sequel should improve upon the original in every manner possible.
It’s up to you to determine if The Great Albini 2 is better than the first, but we still think you should give it a shot.
