The Creepy Carnival is a video slot adaptation of a traveling carnival that games developer Nolimit City launched on June 1, 2015. The Creepy Carnival is the developer’s first game in its two-game Carnival series whose second game is Harlequin Carnival (April 2020). The themes include: fright, animal acts, playing card values, fortune telling, circus, and performing arts.
This slot is named after the featured frightening circus skills. Ten symbols (sinister ringmaster, scary clown, circus monkey, muscular performer, circus cougar, A, K, Q, J, and 10) require three, four, or five winning combinations.
The Creepy Carnival Game Characteristics
The Creepy Carnival has a celled 5X3 grid that is set on a floral vintage horse-drawn carriage. Actually, this slot has two sets of fixed paylines even though only the first batch of 20 basic fixed paylines are numbered on either side of the brown carriage. There are twelve symbols, 15 total bets, three special features, tens of free games, respins, extra spins, three win multipliers, sticky “wild” circus tigers, and self-adjusting payouts range from $0.02 to $1500.00.
The Creepy Carnival has two special symbols and ten ordinary symbols. Special symbols: the substitute is an open-mouthed green-eyed “wild” circus tiger; and the free spins-triggering feature is a fortune-telling “scatter” humanoid with a forked tongue, holding a blue crystal ball.
The ordinary symbols comprise of five high-paying symbols and five-low paying symbols, namely: a bald orange-haired white sinister ringmaster in black and holding a candy bag; a scary wide-eyed, fanged and purple-haired clown in a top hat and an orange-and-white costume; a cymbals-holding circus monkey dressed in purple and yellow; a shaven and tattooed muscular performer with broken wrist shackles; a cigarette-smoking blue-eyed off white circus cougar in a starry cap; and purple playing card values A, K, Q, J, and 10.
The Creepy Carnival total bets: $0.20 (minimum bet), $0.40, $0.60, $0.80, $1.00, $2.00, $4.00, $6.00, $8.00, $10.00, $20.00, $40.00, $60.00, $80.00, and $100.00 (maximum bet).
Based on the $100.00 bet, these are The Creepy Carnival payouts for three, four, and five winning combinations. The ringmaster pays $75.00, $175.00, and $1500.00. The scary clown pays $65.00, $150.00, and $875.00. The circus monkey pays $60.00, $130.00, and $625.00. The muscled performer pays $50.00, $110.00, and $350.00. The circus cougar pays $40.00, $100.00, and $250.00. A pays $30.00, $60.00, and $200.00. K pays $25.00, $50.00, and $175.00. Q pays $20.00, $40.00, and $150.00. J pays $15.00, $30.00, and $125.00. And 10 pays $10.00, $20.00, and $100.00.
Normally, The Creepy Carnival has 20 fixed paylines during the regular game which increase to 40 fixed paylines during the free games. The three special features are: one, respins featuring both locked “wild” circus tigers, and X2 and X3 win multipliers for the first and second respins, respectively; two, free star spin that is activated by 13 collectible circus characters, thereby rewarding players with two wins-enhancing “wild” tigers; and, lastly, three fortune-telling “scatter” humanoids offering ten free games (plus five extra free games for an extra humanoid), thereby activating the X5 win multiplier and the other batch of 20 fixed paylines (now totaling 40 fixed paylines). Its stimulated maximum payout is X1595, which ($100X1595) is $159,500.00.
The Creepy Carnival has good software; its features include a fast mode; and 10, 25, 50, 100, 250 or 1000 automated rounds with preset win and balance increase/decrease limits. The ambient background has circus music. Sound effects: chinking coins and slapstick. The 3D graphics are barely animated.
