The Carnaval Slot is a 5 reel video slot game by Microgaming. You might assume that it’s based on circus-style carnivals, but it is actually all about the famous Mardi Gras celebrations that originated in New Orleans and which take place just before Lent each year.

You’ll, therefore, be treated to an array of bright, jazzy symbols including trumpets, playing cards, head masks, jesters, and more in eye-popping greens, blues, reds and pinks.

The Carnaval slot game only has nine pay-lines making it beautifully simple for both new multi-line slots players and seasoned pros alike. It has a betting range of 0.25 to 5.00, and you can bet a maximum of nine coins with each spin. There’s a top jackpot of 5,000, and plenty of features to help you keep those winning combos flooding in, such as wilds, multipliers, and scatters.

Interestingly, there’s no free spins feature or bonus round with the Carnaval slot which might put some of the more experienced slots fan amongst you off a bit. However, it’s still highly enjoyable to play, and the cheery carnaval music is bound to put a smile back on your face.

The highest paying symbol in the game is the Carnaval slot logo. It pays out 20, 200, 800, and 5,000 when two, three, four, or five of these symbols appear on the reels respectively.

You can choose to play in Expert rather than Regular mode if you would like access to some of the game’s more advanced features that allow you to utilise the auto-spin options. It provides a much-faster-paced game, one which is ideal for the high roller.

Even if you don’t scoop a massive win.
