Bring a little music into your life with this Carnival Queen slot, which will either make you smile or have you weeping to the shadow man.
We struggled with this Carnival Queen slot review because we originally were leaning towards 3 stars, and then… we got a win of 641 times our bet and it immediately went up to a 4-star slot.
But, like almost every single real money slot machine we write about, luck on the day probably has got a lot to do with whether you will love or hate a game.
The most we can do it give you any warnings and the potential of this Thunderkick casino game – of which there are plenty of both.
This is a beautiful game, though we recommend you play it in landscape rather than portrait mode as with 6 reels, it feels a little small on standard Android phone or iPhone screens.
Still, it’s suitably festive, with a real funky sound that takes you away to the street of New Orleans where masked individuals represent the high paying symbols and Mardi Gras is in full swing.
It’s such an explosive party, in fact, that on every win the symbols explode and more cascade from above. When this happens the multiplier increases and there’s no limitation like in Gonzo’s Quest game.
The highest we’ve seen is a 12x multiplier, but that was in the Carnival Queen mobile slot free spins.
This is a volatile and frustrating game. We played for nearly an hour and hit the bonus games… twice. And the first time didn’t count because we won the whole of 5x our bet.
The second time blew our minds. Mostly because while during the base game the multipliers reset when no more wins are found, during the free spins they don’t. They just keep going up and up.
And, to add a little zing, the wild symbol during this slot’s bonus will explode and remove symbols vertically and diagonally.
We had to keep playing because we had to write about it. If we hadn’t, this mobile slot review would have been a lot more average. So bear that in mind, and keep an eye on your budget.
Otherwise, you might want to play with the real king of Carnival, the Baron Samedi slot game by Yggdrasil.

Wilds: The 'w' is the wild symbol and can replace any other symbol to create a win. It cannot replace the bonus symbol.
Avalanching Reels and Multipliers: Every win will destroy the symbols part of the winning line, and more will drop down from above, like an avalanche or cascade.
On every cascading win, the multiplier increases by 1 and there's no limit to how high this multiplier can go. The multiplier resets to 1x when you get no more avalanching reels.
Scatters and Free Spins: 3 scatter symbols anywhere on the reels will trigger 12 free spins. Where it gets interesting is that the multiplier doesn't reset on a lose.
Plus, if you don't get a win, and there are wilds on screen, that wild will now explode and destroy all symbols horizontally and vertically, in its path.
The Carnival Queen video slot has 6 reels and 4096 pay ways, with avalanching exploding symbols that increase a multiplier on every win. You will also find wilds, locking multiplier in the bonus games and free spins.
On paper, it sounds perfect, and the reality isn't far off. As long as you are aware that with that many ways to win, you need to hit some serious multipliers to hit serious cash.
Which means hitting the free spins and getting lucky. If you don't mind walking away with just some glass beads in your pocket and love the high-risk tension of high variance slot machines, you will love this Carnival Queen slot on mobile.
Just use the fact that you have a minimum bet of 0.10 to play low and slow because if you play high and fast you'll probably burn out quickly.
