The Carnival Queen is a 6-reel, 4096 ways to win slot, inspired by the famous Mardi Gras festival. The slot is playable across desktop and handheld devices and accepts bets between 0.10p and £100 per spin.
If you have played other Thunderkick titles, you will not be surprised by the cartoonish design and the bright colours.
The low-value symbols are letters and numbers. The premium symbols are accessories and characters dressed in carnival costumes. The crown is the best paying premium symbol. Land six crowns in one spin and you get 20 times your stake. The Wild symbol is represented by the letter W, and it substitutes all the other symbols except for the scatter, to create a winning combination. The scatter is a woman wearing a carnival mask.
The Avalanche Feature
The Avalanche feature is also worthy of mentioning. Actually, you have probably seen it in other slots before, but you did not know that it is called an Avalanche. The symbols drop on the reels, and those forming a winning combination explode. They are replaced by new ones that might result in yet another win. The Avalanche feature ends when there are no more symbols creating a winning combination. It is important to know that the multiplier increases by 1x every time you get an exploding winning combination. And the best of all is that the multiplier does not go back to 0 if you have a losing spin. Whenever you have a losing spin, the wild symbol will remove all standard symbols and basically, you will be given a second chance to create a winning combination.
Free Spins Feature
If you land 3, 4, 5 or 6 scatters, you get 12, 16, 20 or 24 free spins, respectively. If you land 2 scatters in one spin, you get a retrigger. Any additional scatter earns you 3 extra free spins.
The carnival queen is one of the best products Thunderkick has released as of late. Although it evokes some associations with Bonanza, the Carnival Queen has its own charm and it is not tailored to leave you with a zero bankroll after a few spins. It is a medium variance slot that comes with the industry standard 96.01% RTP. All things considered, we do recommend it as a fresh, captivating slot that has a huge winning potential.
