The Carnival Queen video slot appeared in online casinos in February 2019. The machine is released by Thunderkick. The game mechanics are the same as in the famous slot Gonzo's Quest – "avalanche". There are two differences: in Carnival Queen, the playing field is larger and there are free spins.
The theme of the online slot is New Orleans carnival. The game's characters do not interact with each other in any way. There is no plot. If you like to watch how combinations are formed, then do not play this slot from your smartphone: the game field is updated quickly, and the icons are small in size.
There are no lines in the Carnival Queen slot. There are 4096 payment methods. The game layout is 6 × 4 (six reels). The field does not change, and all images always occupy one cell on the reel. That is, there is no update of the playing field unlike Megaways.

To build a combination, it is sufficient that the symbols are located on adjacent verticals. It is not necessary for symbols to even touch each other with the sides or corners. The first icon should be located on the left reel. The number of icons in a combination is three to six. Multiple payouts can occur simultaneously in a single round.
Features of the main game
There are no spins of the reels. There is a "drop" of game symbols from the top. This principle is called Avalanche.
- 1. The winning combination disappears from the screen as it "explodes".
- 2. There is a free fall: the remaining elements of the playing field are moved down to the place of the disappeared combination, new symbols fall from above.
- 3. This continues until paid combinations continue to be created.
Thus, it is theoretically possible to create infinite number of combinations in a single round.
The second feature: each new combination in one round is paid with an increasing coefficient in increments of 1. The coefficient increases indefinitely. The rules don't say anything about restrictions. Winning in one round is limited only by the one-time payout limit - 22,700 bets! When there are no more new combinations in the round, the coefficient is reset to x1.
1. Wild in the form of the letter " W " is similar to the wild card when creating combinations. The Joker can drop on any vertical, including several at the same time. The Joker is always single (not stacked). It is not paid for.
2. The Scatter is marked with the word "Bonus". Three of these icons anywhere on the screen launch the free game. The scatter symbol is not paid for. Scatters are counted when the avalanche is over.
There are 11 regular symbols: a crown, four carnival participants, and six playing card denominations. All these symbols can follow each other in columns, forming stacks of two to four elements in each.

Three scatters in the main game activate 12 free spins. Each additional scatter gives +4 free spins. Two or more scatters in the free game give +3 additional free spins.
There are two differences from the usual game:
1. If there was no combination in the free spin, the multiplier is not reset!
2. If a Joker drops on the screen, but the combination is not formed, the Joker "explodes" all the symbols horizontally and vertically, the free round is not completed, and the symbols fall for free.
It is important that a free game is very rare. For 2000 test spins, it was only possible to get it 4 times. Free game statistics (bet wins/multiplier achieved): 77/x17, 123/x15, 181/x14/, 246/x15. However, 2000 spins ended with a win of +287 bets. Testing took place in demo mode in one of the top online casinos.
Official parameters of Carnival Queen slot: RTP – 96.1%, high volatility. This slot machine has a huge potential. If you wait for a free game, it is guaranteed to bring you to the plus. But to wait for it, you need to have a stock of at least 300 bets and a significant amount of time.
