Betting Options and Functions
The top prize for Carnival of Venice is a whopping 15,000 coins, which is higher than the usual 10,000. The bonus game consists of un-masking the festival-goers – how indecent considering how much work they’ve put into their masks! It’s worth it however, because if you should get enough bonus symbols, the winnings can go up to 6,100 coins, just in the bonus round. The game has 25 win lines and 5 reels. The Venice skyline is both the scatter symbol and the wild symbol. This will both trigger the bonus game and 30 free spins!
Theme & Special
The Carnival of Venice is a (very) long-standing – since the 1100’s to be exact – festival of masks that takes place annually in Venice, Italy. Initially, it was seen as an opportunity for economic and cultural growth in Italy, but was forbidden by the King of Austria for some time in the late 1700’s, only making a comeback as recently as 1979. During the time it was outlawed, it began to take place covertly, in private homes, and began also to develop a competitive element as to the quality and beauty of the costumes and masks. Mask makers held prominent positions and even enjoyed the benefits of have a separate set of laws. Currently, the festival hosts an official competition in which costume and fashion designers judge participants. The makers of Carnival of Venice have taken this theme of design and beauty and turned it into a vividly colourful slot machine game that is a feast for the eyes as well as the ears. The soundtrack sounds like something from a romantic film from the 50’s, perhaps set over a scenic car trip or an overview of some gorgeous city, which is very apt, considering that the game is set in Venice. The graphics of the game don’t lack colour either. The masks are all vividly drawn and beautiful. The wild symbol features fireworks and there are multi-hued streamers gently falling down through the air in the background of the reels.
Beautifully designed, this game from Topgame draws on Venetian history in a way that redefines what it means to find inspiration for a game design. Drawing on iconic culture is an inspiring choice, and for that we say ‘Grazi’.
