Low value symbols in the game come in the form of the high end of a deck of cards with 10 through to A. These symbols can offer between x0.1 and x1.5 the player’s stake, spending on the amount of winning combinations that land on a single spin.
Chimps and bears depict the medium value symbols, offering between x0.5 and x3 the player’s stake if the right amount of paying combinations land in one go.
High value symbols are represented by crocodiles and tigers. If the right amount of winning combinations land on one turn then these symbols can offer between x0.5 and x3.5 the player’s stake.
Other symbols in the game include a sparkle wild star that triggers the sparkle wild feature if one or more land on the reels. These symbols also offer a payout between x0.5 and x5 the player’s stake, spending on the amount of star wilds that appear on a winning payline.
Finally, circus tent and cannon scatters can also land onto the reels during the standard game.
Animal Carnival has cascading wins, which means winning symbols will disappear after applying their payout, making way for new symbols and increasing the win potential of an already successful spin.
Above the reels, a red curtain will reveal special symbols that will drop onto the reels after a cascading win. Wild stars positions are revealed, but will not activate the sparkle wild feature unless they have dropped onto the reels before any cascading wins.
Stars that drop after cascading wins are attributed to a multiplier meter at the side of the screen. With every three stars that drop after a cascading win, the multiplier meter will increase by a value of one, starting at x1 at the beginning of every spin.
Once the meter reaches three stars, the winning payout received at the end of the cascading wins will be increased by the multiplier provided by the meter.
If a star wild drops onto the reels with a standard spin, the sparkle wild feature will be activated. This causes the star to turn between one and four other symbols on the reels to turn into wilds, with only regular symbols being replaced by wilds.
Additionally, one or more cannon symbols appearing on the reels will activate the cannon respin feature. This causes the cannon symbol to disappear along with three to six other symbols, paving the way for a potential cascading win. Only regular symbols can be removed with this feature.
Landing three or more circus tent scatters will trigger the free spins feature. Initially, 10 spins are awarded to the player, with a win meter implementing a progressive multiplier. Every win is counted in a meter, similarly to the wild star meter.
With every three wins, the multiplier value is increased by one. At the end of the free spins, the winning payout is increased by the free spins win multiplier. Landing additional circus tents will award one extra free spin each time.
Players also have the opportunity to buy this free spins mode for the price of x70 the player’s preferred stake.
