Roll up, roll up and enjoy all the fun of the fair in this next slot. Join us as we enter the Carnival Royale courtesy of Microgaming. There are strong men, bearded ladies and fairground rides galore, plus some exciting bonus features which are sure to bring you lots of entertainment.
Carnival Royale is a 5-reel, 243 ways to win slot with an RTP of 95.5% for players. Your reels are very ornately surrounded in gold, glittery flourishes and the carnival is in full swing in the background. The reels are packed full of symbols relating to the theme, as well as keeping the flare of the funfair at its heart. Symbols include characters from the carnival such as the dancing monkey and the strongman as well as the usual card symbols. High value symbols are the ringmaster, a female clown, strongman and a chorus girl. Low value symbols are the A, K, Q, J, 10 and 9 decked out in bright colours and carnival themed lettering. As the reels spin there is a jaunty tune playing which makes you feel as if you have entered the circus tent for real.
Bet Amounts – Betting begins at 25p per spin and can be increased up to just £12.50 per spin, landing Carnival Royale in our more affordable slots list. You can amend two things to get to the bet amount you desire. These are the coin value and the coin level, and they are found to the lower left of the reels. Use the plus and minus symbols on the coin value to amend it up or down and use the coin value button to increase the level step by step until you reach level 5. Once you are happy with the bet amount showing you can return to playing the game.
Wild Symbol – Your wild symbol in Carnival Royale is none other than the dancing monkey. He only appears on reels 2, 3 and 4, and will substitute for all other symbols except the scatter and bonus.
Scatter Symbol – A fortune teller shrouded in smoke is your scatter symbol on Carnival Royale. She will only land on reels 1, 2 and 3, and you need three or more to trigger the bonus spins.
Bonus Symbol – Brightly coloured balloons make up your bonus symbol which only lands on reels 3, 4 and 5. You need to land three of the balloon bonus symbol on those reels to trigger the bonus game.
Balloon Pop Feature – When you land three or more balloon bonus symbols on reels 3, 4 and 5, you will enter the bonus game. You will be taken to a new screen filled with balloons, each one containing a cash sum within it. Click the balloons revealing the cash sum inside until you reveal a balloon that says collect all. Once you hit the collect all your bonus game is over and you will be returned to the main game.
Bonus Spins Feature – To trigger one of the three bonus spins games on offer, you first need to land three or more fortune teller scatters on reels 1, 2 and 3. You will then be given the opportunity to pick from one of the available spin’s games.

Fast and furious fun can be found within Carnival Royale and that’s exactly what you want from a visit to the fair. Lots of base game wins occur, albeit on the lower end of the pay scale with the occasional big win. This paired with the various bonuses makes for great gameplay for all. Both the balloon pop and the fortune teller spins trigger relatively often, meaning no long waiting periods for the big money bonus games. Overall a cheery, bright and fun filled game with lots of potential wins for players. Definitely worth a visit even if carnival themed games aren’t on your favourites list, we think this one may just find its way into your heart.
