Carnival Queen slot from Thunderkick is a vibrant, fun new slot that has several attractive features. Most interesting of these is the fact that you can win up to an enourmous 22,700x your total bet. That’s significantly higher than most slots offer which stay around 5,000x or so.
In terms of the way this looks, it’s a little disappointing. The graphics here are pretty poor and the animations are basic. It’s a bit of a shame because it’s such a fun theme and could really look impressive with all the vibrant colours on display. Thunderkick aren’t one of the biggest names in the industry though so you can’t expect too much in this department. All you need to do to get going is spin the reels and try to get a winning combination from left to right using the base symbols. These are listed as follows, ranked in ascending order based on their value:
These symbols will give you a win when there are enough of them along one of the 4096 ways to win. There are a couple of extra symbols though to help you get more wins. The first of these is the Wild symbol, shown simply as a large W, which substitutes for all other symbols apart from the Scatter symbol. The Scatter symbol, shown as a festive lady in a mask, is used to trigger the Bonus game as you’ll see below.
Avalanche Feature. Any symbols that are included in a win will be removed from the reels and replaced from new symbols falling in from above. This will continue if the extra symbols form another win, meaning you could get quite a few wins in a row for just the cost of a single spin.
Multiplier Feature. Carnival Queen slot takes advantage of the Avalanche Feature by allowing you to get increasing multipliers as you get more and more wins from the feature. In other words, one win could lead to a consecutive win with a better multiplier with no limit.
Bonus Game. This is triggered by 3 or more Scatter symbols appearing anywhere on the reels. You’ll be given 12 free spins for just 3 Scatter symbols, and ever additional Scatter symbol will give you another 4 free spins. Once the Bonus starts, you’ll need at least 2 Scatter symbols to win any more free spins. 2 will give you an additional 3 free spins, and every Scatter on top of this will give you another 3 free spins. If you think that’s all there is to the Bonus game though, you’d be wrong. What’s most appealing here is that the multiplier feature does not reset. This means you can rack up some very big multipliers without just relying on the avalanche feature. Furthermore, when there are no wins in the Bonus, a Wild symbol will remove all other symbols apart from Scatter symbols both horizontally and vertically.
Carnival Queen slot from Thunderkick is very exciting because you can win up to a whopping 22,700x your total bet. Yes, that’s right, there’s no type there. This is one of the biggest payouts we’ve seen available in quite some time and will definitely attract a lot of players looking to win big. It’s a pretty simple game by nature, but I quite like the way the avalanche feature works to give you increasing multipliers, and that during the Bonus Game this isn’t reset after a spin. You can win quite a few extra free spins too to help you out and the Wild symbol is also pretty interesting. Top it all off with a fun and festive theme and you have yourself a very respectable slot that’s both exciting and rewarding. 4096 ways to win is also pretty appealing too. In short, this is a pretty great slot that I don’t have much to complain about.
