Whichever way you look at it, a carnival is always going to turn into a pretty a wild time, right? After all, there’s up-tempo music, energetic entertainers, bright colours, and an all round feel good atmosphere. Wild Carnival from Rival Gaming is a game that brings this feel good feeling bursting out of your screen!
Wild Carnival incorporates five reels and three rows for you to make the most of, while 50 pay lines are also present within the game. You can customise both the active pay lines and the number of coins in operation per spin. Up to 10 coins between 1p and 25p per line can be brought into play, allowing for a maximum bet possibility of £125 per spin.
Graphically speaking, Wild Carnival has some excellent thematic imagery running through it, even if those images aren’t the sharpest. The symbols begin with multi-coloured playing card symbols from 9 through to A, there are also images of a tambourine and a drum operating as basic symbols within the game. Up to 1,000x your bet can be won from the former of those two. A good deal of symbols, however, are special symbols.
Would it even be a carnival if it didn’t have trumpets tooting out from here, there, and everywhere? There are certainly trumpets in this slot, and they act as its jackpot symbol.
You only need to spin two of them into view on successive reels and on a pay line for a pay out, but should you be lucky enough to spin five jackpot symbols into view you’ll see your bet is multiplied by 7,000x.
Make sure that you keep a close eye out for the appearance of the blue masquerade mask, as it is this one that provides the game with its wild symbol. This being case, wherever it shows up it will count as all other standard symbols on the reels, helping you with forming winning combinations.
These symbols only show up on reels one, three, and five, but they will also expand to cover the whole reel they’re on, should it be possible to form wins on other pay lines.
It’s not all about masks and musical instruments. Wild Carnival also brings peacock feathers to the forefront of the game, and it is this symbol that works as the slot’s free spins scatter addition.
You’ll need to spin three or more of this symbol into view in any position in order for free spins to start, and when you do, you’ll be given five free spins for three scatters, 10 free spins for the appearance of four scatters, or 20 free spins when five symbols show up. Throughout this feature round, you’ll be on the receiving end of a 3x multiplier.
In the top-left corner of the game screen, you’ll see a counter that begins as 0/12. While you spin the reels of the game, you’ll see purple, white, and blue beads come into view as a single symbol.
You will collect these every time they appear, and once you reach 12/12 the Bead Bonus begins. This essentially provides you with a large coin pay-out every time it fills up.
There is another bonus round which is activated by the appearance of the second masquerade mask – this time in orange and red. Again, it takes three or more of this one to appear on the reels in order for the bonus round to start.
In this feature, you’re required to assist a carnival dancer with the completion of her costume for the event. Pick from 16 jewels and you’ll either reveal a part of her costume or coin wins.
Wild Carnival is definitely one of the more elaborate games from the Rival Gaming developer, both in terms of the theme and the inbuilt features. This is by no means a bad thing, because as gamers we’re always looking for something more from the titles we play. Fortunately, everything works very well within Wild Carnival and it stands out as one of Rival’s best releases, despite only average graphics.
