Harlequin Carnival Slot Review

Harlequin Carnival certainly has a unique theme, even for a Nolimit City game. The character itself goes way back, to a time before slots even existed in any form, so we’re certainly into some historical territory here. You’ll notice how this applies to the whole theme as soon as you enter the reels. Speaking of which, they come in quite a standard setup with five reels, three symbols and twenty paylines. This is combined with high volatility to make the wins count.

The music and sound effects would be fit for an Italian comedy, or the baroque era castle and characters that fill the screen. The graphical style is certainly nice, different and colourful. Though there are no complex animations playing out on the screen, the different effects that winning combinations and such launch create all the fanfare necessary. Even the paylines have received an upgrade over the standard. A combination of simplicity and style make Harlequin Carnival a musty-try game.

When it comes to features and paylines you can find some similarities in other Nolimit City games, though the themes are usually quite different. If it’s renaissance or baroque or harlequins you are after you should try Twin Harlequin, Carnival of Venice or the many games that use the successor of harlequins, the joker, as inspiration instead.

By now it should be clear that Harlequin Carnival is visually a spectacle, both for those who are used to games from this producer, and for those who are looking for something new and interesting to try. The game comes with all the modern amenities, and works on all devices. Support for mobile devices does not only include functionality through web browsers, but also via tailored screen sizes. Enjoyable game all around.

How to Play Harlequin Carnival

You set the total bet for all 20 paylines, and it is then divided individually to determine your wins.

The minimum bet you can set in this online game is 0.20 coins, and the maximum 100 coins.

How that translates to currency depends on the online casino you’re playing at, but generally, the bet can be as low as a penny.

The payouts for the game are rather low, especially considering the high variance of the game. Luckily, this just means that it’s the special features, rather than single spins, that bring out the massive wins. To get there faster and easier, you can enable the turbo mode, fire up Autoplay to roll the reels automatically, or just use the Nolimit Buy a Bonus feature.

The playing cards that symbolize the low-value wins take on the form of suits, replacing the number ranks that are commonly used. Fitting, as this is about the era playing cards started to actually become more popular. All other symbols are characters of a sort, with a mask on as you would have in a carnival.

Two Harlequin Carnival bonus symbols are the key to unlocking the full potential of these game rounds:

  • The Harlequin Wild – The wild comes loaded with special effects and big payouts.
  • The Harlequin Bonus – An important symbol if you aim to land the Harlequin Carnival Free Spin.

Game Rules

Harlequin Carnival Slot Features

The wild, or the harlequin, is the most important symbol in the game, increasing the winning potential in the game whenever it shows up. But you needn’t forget about the bonus spins as they come with their own set of powerful modifiers too. Sure enough, the basic reels might feel empty from time to time, but just bide your time and make it to the special rounds.

Harlequin xNudge Wild

This is a feature that is popular in Nolimit City games, but in Harlequin Carnival, it has received a bit of a booster. The wild symbols show up on the middle reels, and will always nudge to cover the entire reel when it appears even partly. Each nudge increases the win multipliers on all the wild on that reel. Multiple wild multipliers add together.

Furthermore, this activates the Harlequin Respin.

Harlequin xNudge Wild
Harlequin Respin

Harlequin Respin of Harlequin Carnival starts as above. All Harlequin Wilds, which take over the whole reel, take a step left and award a new respin. Each step also increases the multiplier, and collecting three bonus symbols will award you with eight free spins.

This can happen either via the Harlequin Respins or via the basic game. Just land three bonus symbols and you get eight free spins. You’ll get a guaranteed Harlequin xNudge active from the get-go, coming with a triple multiplier too. The multiplier can go as high as seven, as the wild moves along the reels.

Bonus symbols act as a normal wild, also bestowing an extra spin for you each time they show up. Collect five of them, and a Harlequin Wild will cover the entire fifth reel.

The free spins can be activated for a one-time payment. If you’d like to sidestep the normal spins then the price is steep, but it might be just something for the last spin of the game.
