Dark Carnivale Slot review
Dark Carnivale is a horror and circus themed game, featuring killer clowns and homicidal teddy bears.
Offered by Beefee, Dark Carnivale is a game that fans of the horror genre will get a kick out of. It’s not the kind of game that just takes you to the circus, giving you instead a very dark horror version of it. You will find on its reels symbols with zombie like clowns, with skulls, teddy bears covered in blood and holding kitchen knives, possessed bumper cars, flaming unicorns and even an attractive clown girl. The poker cards are placed on top of wooden boards and they have some nice decorations on them. Overall, it can offer a great experience to players, and it’s horror themed, so it can be played very well during Halloween. The slot gives you a maximum of 20 active lines, on its 5 reels. Dark Carnivale’s features include wild symbols, a scatter and free games with stacked wilds. You’re playing for a top prize of $2,500.
The bets vary between $0.05 and $50, and they will cover between 5 and 20 active lines. The maximum bet that you can use will have $2.50 for each active line. The minimum line bet can be set to $0.01. The bottom screen betting system is a bit clunky to use, since it only lets you increase the bet, and if you need a smaller value you need to cycle through the entire range in order to get back to the minimum amount. The alternative is to use the meters placed on both sides of the reels, the number of lines being selected from the left, while the line bet has the values on the right.
The Circus Wagon will behave as a wild, and the game will use it to replace a symbol that’s trying to form any regular combination. You can’t combine it with a scatter symbol though, only with the regular ones.
The Circus Tent symbol is that scatter, which you may use when it lands on the reels 1, 3 and 5. You need all three icons positioned on those reels, and in exchange the game will offer a reward of 3x total bet, plus 12 free spins where the wild symbols are stacked.
Dark Carnivale is an excellent choice, a horror themed slot machine that has few competitors that are as well made as it is. I enjoyed the graphics especially, but the features are decent as well.
