Roll up, roll up! The circus is in town courtesy of Genesis Gaming and its Carnival Royale slot. It's a 5 reel, 3 row, 243 ways to win title that comes with a burst the balloons pick me round and a free spins feature where you can choose the number of spins and multiplier. Take a trip to the big top from between 25p and £62.50 per spin.

Set against a fairground backdrop, the visuals in Carnival Royale are a delight - harking back to a golden age of the travelling show, symbols on the reels include superbly drawn clown, strongman, and the seemingly obligatory beautiful woman. The ringmaster is the top paying standard symbol, offering 1,000 coins payouts if you find 5 in a payline.

They're joined by playing card symbols from A to 9 which have a distinctly old school feel. The monkey is the wild, substituting for all other symbols apart from the scatter. The imagery is top notch, all backed up by a circus style soundtrack.

Carnival Royale comes with 2 main bonus features - find 3 balloon scatter symbols on reels 3, 4 and 5 and you'll trigger the Balloon Burst feature. It's a pick me style feature based on the classic fairground game. Simply pick a balloon, watch it burst and you'll receive a cash prize and pick again. Keep on choosing until you find the collect when the feature ends.

3 fortune teller scatters on reels 1, 2 and 3 will activate the Carnival Attraction Free Spins feature – here, you're given a choice of 3 free spins/multiplier combinations. The choices are:

  • 15 free spins with a 3x multiplier on all wins
  • 10 free spins with a 5x multiplier on all wins
  • 5 free spins with a 10x multiplier on all wins

It's possible to re-trigger the free spins (at the same number/multiplier rate) during the feature so hope to see the fortune teller. Likewise, you can trigger the Balloon Burst feature during the free spins round if the balloon scatters hit.

There's plenty to admire about Carnival Royale - firstly, it looks and sounds an absolute treat and really maximises the circus theme. The features are an interesting mix too - pick me and free spins aren't exactly revolutionary but the multipliers make the free spins a very interesting proposition (I always go for the big multiplier in the hope of landing that 1 big win!).

Those free spins are the best route to a big win but they don't hit that often as the variance on the high side of medium - when the multipliers kick in, they can certainly deliver. Carnival Royale is one circus show you won't want to miss – neither is Golden Ticket by Play ‘N Go.
