It’s always great to find an online slot game
with a nice selection of special features in it. The circus carousel theme of Cirque du Cheval provides ample opportunities for offering up wonderful specialities. But has Novomatic taken this on board when designing it? Well, to begin with, you’ll find that the game incorporates a wild icon in the form of its very own logo. As such, this icon will stand in for all other symbols on the reels in order to form a win. There are two exceptions to this rule and these come in the form of the Ticket symbol and the Carousel symbol. If five of the wilds come into view on a winning pay line, you’ll receive the highest standard pay out
Alongside the wild icon, the game contains its first bonus icon in the form of the carousel. This one is only able to show up on the fifth reel of the game. If you form a stack of the same icons on the very first reel and the carousel shows up on reel five, the Carousel feature begins. This sees the reels shift to the right between one and four times. All symbols that enter the game from the left will match the symbols initially appearing on reel one.
The other bonus symbol of this game exists in the form of the circus entry ticket. This one is able to trigger the freespins round. It will do this only when a carousel icon shows on reel five while the entire first reel is covered by ticket symbols. Before the freespins round starts, the reels will move in the same way as they do in the Carousel feature. The reels can again move up to four times and the number of spins you receive depends upon the quantity of tickets in view. This amount can stand anywhere between 12 and 20 freespins.
Finally, whenever you form a winning combination during the base game, you’ll be able to access the gamble round. This sees you play a small card game to try and double your winnings. In it, you need to guess the colour of the playing card which is seen face down. Red or black. Any correct guess provides the double multiplier. Meanwhile, any incorrect guess sees the winnings lost.
