Rival Gaming, well known for their bright and innovative online slots have decided that the best way for slots players to beat the winter blues is to whisk them off to a fantastic Wild Carnival. It's a great theme that takes you directly to the heart of the party in Downtown Rio as clowns, crazy guys and Samba girls dance on by while you enjoy the fun sipping on a huge cocktail. The animated opening sequence shows you all the action and as you are taken to the game that theme continues. The symbols are all what you would expect from a Wild Carnival with a few instruments to create that Samba beat such as the drum, trumpet and tambourine, we have the infamous beads, peacock feathers and masks. Even the high value cards get the carnival treatment with a colorful 60's design added to them. The jackpot symbol is the trumpet and this will pay a nice 7000 coins, the blue mask is the wild symbol bringing in those wins, however it will only appear on reels 1, 3, and 5, but will expand to fill the reel.
Wild Carnival has three great features to enjoy. Firstly, when you see three or more peacock feathers you have triggered the free spins. Three feathers gives you 5 spins, four will get you 10 and 5 feathers will offer you the maximum of 20 spins, and a great touch is that all wins during this round are tripled. Another great feature is the Bead Meter, and you can see the meter situated at the top of the screen. Every time you drop in the green and purple beads the bead meter increases by one, and when it fills up you are awarded with a bonus payout. Once the bonus is paid it will go back to zero and you start all over again. For the bonus game you will need three or more masks anywhere on the reels and this will take you to a second screen. This fun feature shows you a Samba girl ready to party, however she has no accessories to wear. Next to the girl are 16 boxes and you must pick 6 boxes that will give the girl what she needs. Be careful as some boxes are empty, but when you do send her a gift then the payouts are very good. Wild Carnival is suitable for all players with a wide betting range on offer of between 1 cent up to 0.25 and a maximum of 10 coins per per line. It's sure to warm you up during the cold nights and even get you in the mood for whatever party you have coming up in the near future.
