Fun and games in the great outdoors? Not quite in this Carry on Camping slot.
Let’s face the elephant in the room, or the bull out of the paddock, first: the theme.
Yes, technically Sid, Kenneth and co are back for some Carry On slot madness, but in truth these are but poor caricatures of the original.
Which is not a bad description of this Carry on Camping mobile slot game, which just makes you want to Carry On to any other Android slot or iOS game.
There are a couple of cut scenes from the original film, making this feel a little authentic. But mostly the characters to the right of the reels make you feel a little sad at how a classic film was butchered for the casinos.
Let’s talk about the many ‘random’ bonus slot features in this Carry on Camping game shall we.
There are four of them, which trigger so seldom, we had to play over 2,000 spins to trigger them all just once. Not great Open Bet Gaming. Not great.
And other than Babs Lucky 7, where you get at least 5 free spins on a 3 reel slot machine, none pay out any decent cash.
That because all you basically get is one more spin in the Kenneth and Haggard Bonus – nothing else. Sid’s Wild night fares a little better as you get extra wilds but not by much.
Technically the maximum you can win here is 250,000, which sounds impressive until you realise that’s only 500x your bet.
The Mayana slot has more wins and it has only one bonus feature to speak of.
But, we suppose, that’s not what this Carry on Camping slot is all about.
This is about making men of a certain age nostalgic about boob jokes and fart noises, where you never lose much or win much and get free spins every 50 spins or so.
However, we suspect that even they will soon move on to more sophisticated pastures once they realise camping isn’t what it’s cracked up to be.
Not as bad as the Honeymooners slot, but not far off.

Wilds: The Paradise Camp symbol is wild and replaces all other symbols except the bonus symbols.
Bonus Features: Get the yellow tent symbol on reels 1 and 3, and then any of the four symbols below on reels 5, to trigger one of 5 symbols.
Hard to catch, so hard to feel that excited about, unlike the Bon Bon Bonanza bonus games.
Scatters and Free Spins: Get 3, 4, or 5 beach ball symbols on screen and you'll trigger 5, 10 or 20 free spins.
No multipliers, nothing special here, but they do come around often - certainly more often than the four Carry on Camping bonus features above.
This mobile Carry on Camping video slot fails to hit many marks, with badly drawn characters, annoying noises, and little wins.
It didn't even make us want to watch the original Carry on Camping film, which is not great for any slots with a movie theme.
The best we can say is that you probably won't lose much by trying this Open Bet game, but only real fans of the Carry On theme should even try and attempt this one.
If you want some 1970s nostalgia, we'd rather recommend the creepy Halloween slot by Microgaming.
