The annual festival has been taking place since 1162 so it’s nothing new then. There’s certainly been a lot of water flowing under the bridge and everywhere else in Venice since that date. It’ all makes for a great theme for a slot game with the participants wearing elaborate masks so that makes for some excellent visually stunning symbols.
‘Venetian Carnival’ has a total of five reels, three rows of attractive looking symbols that always look great on your tablet and nine pay-lines. They aren’t a fixed amount so you need to decide just how many to activate and that can be either just the one, three, five, seven or all nine. It’s an easy task to do, just use the control buttons situated underneath the reels. Another simple but vital task is deciding how much you are going to stake on each spin. Make sure it’s an amount that you can safely afford to live without if lady luck isn’t on your side. The minimum cost of playing this game with all nine pay-lines activated is just 0.09 and the maximum bet is 450 so a high roller will be keen to try their luck on this slot.
Symbols in this Venetian themed slot include a gondolier, two masked characters that wouldn’t have looked out of place in the renaissance period and one of the many unique bridges seen around Venice. The wild symbol in ‘Venetian Carnival’ is the iconic Medico Della Peste mask. It’s also been referred to in the past as the Plague Doctor mask. You might think therefore that this is the last thing you want to be seeing but actually it’s the exact opposite. As the wild it can substitute for other symbols to get you some winning combination so bring it on. An even better reason for wanting to see it is because it’s on double duty and is also the scatter symbol and can help trigger the free spins round.
If three of the scatter symbols do come along then you receive a total of ten free spins. If you get two of the scatter/wild symbols on the reels during the free spins then they will stay in place and that increases your chances of getting more wins. It’s also possible to re-trigger those free spins if the scatters end up in the magic positions again.
It’s always handy when a winning combination comes along, but perhaps the player might want to win a bit more? Well if they do then it’s time for the gamble feature. This requires correctly guessing whether the next playing card will be red or black. Get the choice right and the player doubles their win and can have four further cracks at boosting that win even further. Get one choice wrong at any time and that win is lost, it might as well be chucked off a Venetian bridge so don’t be using this feature too much.
This isn’t the most complicated game out there but don’t play for real money without knowing a fair bit about it to start with. Have some free Venetian Carnival slot machine games and that will show you just how everything works, particularly the wild and the free spins round. Even more information is available if you access the paytable. That’s packed with details such as how much the winning combinations pay out. For example, the two main mask symbols both pay out a healthy 5000x for five on an activated pay-line, while it’s 500x for five bridges. The paytable also tells you all about the bonus features so it’s essential reading.
