Low value symbols come in the form of playing card royals, with Jacks, Queens, Kings and Aces. If the right number of winning combinations land on a single spin, these symbols can offer between x0.25 and x2 the player’s wager. 

Meanwhile, blue, green, purple and red carnival dancers depict the high value symbols, providing wins between x0.5 and x10 the player’s stake. 

Bonus silver stars can drop into play, displaying monetary values from x1 to x16 the player’s wager. Landing six or more stars on the same spin will activate the Hold the Spin game mode. 

Gold collect stars can also appear, collecting the values of all silver prize stars that appear across the reels. These collect stars will also contribute to the six stars needed to activate the bonus game mode. 

Additionally, drum scatters are available, awarding 10 free spins when three, four or five scatters land on the same spin, with x2, x3 and x5 wild multipliers being made available for the free spins, respectively. 

Wild symbols can land on the reels during the base game, represented by carnival masks. These wilds substitute for all symbols other than stars and free spins scatters. 


In the Hold the Spin feature, players are given three spins to land as many stars on the board as possible, with each star that appears resetting the number of spins to three. 

Once all three spins have been completed, players will receive the accumulated value of all stars that have dropped into play. 

As well as the x1 to x16 prize stars, stars can also appear with jackpot values of mini (x20), minor (x50) or major (x150). 

Special double stars can appear in this feature, causing all other stars on the reels to have their value doubled when the feature draws to a close, including jackpot stars. 

If players manage to fill the bonus reel set with 15 stars, they will receive the game’s grand jackpot prize of x5,000.
