Have clowns, cabaret dancers and the circus ever freaked you out? No? Well you will be fine with this 5 reel, 9 pay-line Mardi Gras-themed slot from the renowned online slot developers at Microgaming.
Firstly, I should state, this might sound obvious but this slot is not to be confused with its sibling slot from Microgaming in the form of Carnival Royale. Yes, they both have a carnival/circus theme but that is pretty much where the similarities end.
Carnaval is based on the Mardi Gras festival that happens one week before lent and is basically just a massive celebration with variety acts, singers, dancers, clowns and other entertainment. The fun party nature of the festival is captured nicely in this slot. Even the pace that the reels spin at has a certain party vibe to it.
The reels are packed with party-themed symbols including a trumpet, masked dancer, clown and colourful party banners. Even the regular symbols have lights surrounding them.
This slot will immediately appeal to players on a budget. You can only bet a maximum of 9 coins per spin and a minimum bet of 25p per spin is all that is needed to play on this slot. The even more astounding fact is that the maximum jackpot is still a hefty 5,000 coins so you can still win a nice jackpot on a low playing budget.
The game has a Wild symbol that is represented by the Carnaval logo symbol. This Wild symbol completes winning combinations when it is substituted with other symbols except for the Scatters.
There are mixed emotions in play with the Scatters. It’s always nice to see a Scatter symbol or two on the reels but unfortunately these Scatters only pay out an automatic win. There is no free spins bonus round or any other bonus feature that they trigger.
The simplicity of Carnaval is both its making and its downfall. This is like the stabilizers on a bicycle for new slots players. If you’re looking for an easy slot to introduce you to slots gaming then this is the slot you want. However, if you are a seasoned slots player then you might want to avoid and go for something more intense such as the newly released IGT Transformers – Battle for Cybertron slot or the thrilling Elvis – A Little More Action slot from the same developer. Personally, I found it a tad dull but I’ve played slots for a while now. If you’re a novice then you might have a different view.
