Carnival by Scotland is a festive-themed online video slot with three rows, five reels, and 19 paylines. The brightly colored graphics depict all the features needed to make a fun-filled carnival. The beautifully designed symbols are in a huge flashy carousel with two flags on top and light bulbs at the bottom where the word ‘CARNIVAL’ is etched. The carousel is prominently set against a dark background. The symbols include pink frosted donuts, chocolate and vanilla swirled ice cream cones, bright balloons, bumper cars, merry-go-round horses, and lollipops.
Players can choose different coin sizes where the coin size spans from $0.20 to $4, and they can only stake one coin per active line. This slot is perfect for mid and high rollers since the minimum bet is $3.80 for all the paylines, and the maximum is $76. The slot has a progressive jackpot which every player yearns to win. Players qualify for this jackpot with a minimum bet of $10 and win the grand prize if they also get five horse symbols on an active payline.
Besides the progressive jackpot, Carnival has other features such as a bonus round, free spins, multipliers, and an expanding wild symbol which enables the players to form several winning combinations and greatly increase their payout. The slot’s scatter symbol is the pistol icon which activates a lucrative all-in-one feature. All these features give the players several opportunities for big wins.
The shooting gallery bonus feature is initiated when the player gets three or more pistol Scatter symbols anywhere on the screen. The player then gets to another screen displaying a shooting gallery with six different targets moving around. The player ought to shoot any of the targets to win one of the four prizes. The player can earn a cash bonus from a multiplier based on their triggering wager, ten free spins, wild ride bonus, or free spins with a 2x multiplier which triggers the Big Bang symbol. During the wild ride bonus, the player is guaranteed that at least one expanding wild symbol will appear within the ten spins substituting all other symbols except the pistol scatter symbol. Triggering the Big Bang symbol ends the bonus round. The free spins are only activated after the bonus round ends. Carnival offers great thrill and entertainment in its gameplay besides the nice payout structure, and it is worth playing.
