Mardi Gras is a wild street party that takes place every year in the city of New Orleans. This yearly event draws in visitors from all over the world. If you never had the chance to attend it in person, you now get the opportunity to do so by playing the newest slot game from Thunderkick called “Carnival Queens”. This game features the festive spirit of the occasion and gives players a chance to win big with its various bonuses and features.
Players are welcomed to the streets of New Orleans when they start up this game. The music is also appropriately festive but the real draw is the six reels in the middle of the screen. The game doesn’t feature the standard pay lines and has 4,096 ways for players to win.
The game features the traditional card symbols as its low-paying symbols. For players who want to win big, they will need to score one of the higher-paying symbols. These are the four carnival goers and the crown. The most valuable symbol is the crown which can give players 20 times their original stake if six of them show up in a single winning combination.
It also helps that the game has the Avalanche feature. What this does is whenever a winning combination is scored, they are removed and the symbols above them drop down. If a new winning combination is formed, the feature continues removing symbols. This has the potential to give players large wins. Besides adding new combinations, multipliers are added for each winning combination.
To make it easier to get winning combinations, the game also features a wild symbol. This is the W symbol and it will act as any other symbol except for the bonus symbol. Players who get six W’s will also get 20 times their original stake.
Lighting Up Fireworks
To win really big jackpots though, you will want to activate the bonus game. This is done by activating the scatter symbol which is the mask. When a player gets three of them, the bonus game is activated. The main reward is that players will get 12 free spins. For every additional mask the player gets beyond three, they get four more free spins. The maximum is 24 free spins.
The great thing about the bonus game is that multipliers don’t reset. With the Avalanche feature active, players can get high multipliers and never worry about losing them. Plus, if a player loses a spin and a wild is present, it will remove all symbols vertically and horizontally – giving players another chance to win.
Overall, players will love Carnival Queens for its excellent gameplay and festive theme.
