The Buster Hammer Carnival mobile slot starts with 3,125 ways to win, but we think that there are 32,768 reasons to try this strange grid game.
Grid video slots are casino games that have at least 5 reels and 5 rows full of symbols, in this case 9 to Ace symbols, some hot dogs, a strong man, carnival tickets and some targets.
Set on a warm Summer night as you walk down the pier into the heart of a Carnival, you come face to face with the strongest man of all, daring you to go hammer to hammer to get the top score.
Technically the minimum bet is 0.50 a spin, but to get the full enjoyment of this Chance Interactive slot machine you need to increase the bet level via the Buster Bet.
Level 3 is where you want to play, as you get wilds on 3 out of the 5 reels, and the RTP of the machine increases significantly to 96.34%.
If you are not prepared to bet that high, then we recommend you play Ninja Ways by Red Tiger Gaming or The Wiz slot by Elk Gaming, as this Buster Hammer Carnival slot game isn’t worth playing without it.
The reason why you want that Buster bet active to the max is that when you get a win with any wild symbol, the strongman hits the reels and gives you stacks of wilds.
But only on the reels activated by the Buster bet – on level 1 that’s only one reel, but on level 3 that’s three of the five reels.
And the only way to get any decent wins in this Buster Hammer Carnival is through those stacks of wilds.
This goes into overdrive during the free spins where the reels expand to 8 rows high with 32,768 ways to win, which is where this mobile casino game really shines.
Is this the best Carnival grid slot out there? Probably not; the Golden Ticket slot by Play’n GO would get our vote. But it’s fun enough to take a few spins to try and hit those bonus games.

The reason this Buster Hammer Carnival slot review is only 3 stars is mostly that the starting bet is high and you really have to search in the paytable for the benefits of getting that extra bet,
Even NextGen superbet machines tend to have a lower wagering and make it clearer. This may tempt beginners into take some spins without much chance of a win.
But if you do play this with the Buster bet on to the max, and those stacks of wilds popping onto the screen on every wild win, the wins are here.
Much like a real carnival, most of the time you'll walk away with a consolation prize, but every once in a while someone will walk away with the giant Teddy Bear.
