The first release of the Thunderkick studio in 2019 will be a slot about Catholic Shrovetide
Thunderkick has announced the release of the Carnival Queen slot machine, dedicated to the celebration of the so-called Fat Tuesday and the folk festivals associated with it. Mardi Gras, or Fat Tuesday, is celebrated in Catholic countries before the onset of Lent, and is most reminiscent of Maslenitsa. The release of the game is scheduled for February 20. The six-reel video slot offers gamblers 4096 winning combinations with growing multipliers and free spins. If lucky, the player can increase the initial bet by 22700 times, which makes the Carnival Queen slot the most potentially lucrative of all Thunderkick titles. At the same time, the return rate (RTP) is 96.1%, which is familiar to studio games. The vibrant playing field is set against the backdrop of a crowded New Orleans street in the US state of Louisiana. Drawn portraits of people in colorful carnival masks are used as symbols of the upper order. The wild is represented by the letter W, and the most expensive symbol is the royal crown. Both symbols will bring gamblers a twenty-fold multiplication of the bet for a line of six icons. The machine uses a cascade function of replacing symbols in case of making effective combinations. The game mechanics are reminiscent of the rules implemented in the popular Bonanza slot from Big Time Gaming. Using the avalanche feature causes any win in the standard game to trigger a chain reaction of combo changes, in which with each sign update, the additional multiplier increases by one. Free spins in the Carnival Queen slot A set of 3, 4, 5 or 6 scatters with the Carnival Queen activates 12, 16, 20 or 24 free spins. During their use, each time the reels are launched, the coefficient for calculating payouts increases. Also, in the free spins mode, you can earn additional free spins. The atmosphere of a noisy holiday recreated in the Carnival Queen slot, bright graphics, a large number of free spins and a large jackpot make the new machine from Thunderkick a potential hit. However, contrary to the promises of the developers, the game does not use a bonus with original mechanics, presented in the previously released video slot Rocket Fellas Inc. It is possible that the studio representatives saved it for the next release.
