While there is nothing wrong with the Christmas spirit, slot game enthusiasts might be looking for a diversion from the avalanche of Christmas themed titles. Rival Gaming is happy to oblige and it recently launched the Wild Carnival title which is already live in Cocoa Casino.

Players are transported to a unique part of the globe and invited to attend the Rio Carnival, with vibrant colors and visually appealing animations welcoming them from the introductory clip. All the symbols are thematic and they include masks, beads, peacock feathers, tambourines, trumpets and drums, alongside clowns and samba girls.

Rival Gaming designers paid a lot of attention to details and the background is nothing short of impressive, and capable of completely immersing players into the festive spirit. The trumpet represents the jackpot symbol and it is responsible for triggering a line payout of 7000 coins, while the blue mask serves as a wild symbol. It can only appear on the first, third and fifth reels but it has the ability of expending over the other reels, when the animation commences.

There is no shortage of bonus features in Wild Carnival, with the free spins being awarded when at least three peacock feathers appear on the reels. Three of them will trigger the release of five free spins, four award 10 of them and the maximum amount of 20 free spins is awarded when five peacock feathers are revealed. During these free spins all payouts are tripled and purple or green beans further boost the prize.

Another bonus game begins on the second screen when at least three golden masks appear on the reels, with players being invited to compete in a minigame. The goal is to select the appropriate accessories from a total of 16 jewel boxes and dress-up a samba girl, with each successful peak awarding a prize.
