    How to Play

    Balthazar’s Wild Carnival is a 3X5 slot that features three Free Spins bonus rounds and a Free Spins bonus gamble feature.

    Please note that this game is connected to the CORE JACKPOT BONUS, (CJB). This game has 7% RTP allocated to the CJB.

    Each press of PLAY will action each reel to spin to a random position. Wins are paid for matching 3, 4 or 5 of-a-kind symbols and also 2 of-a-kind Wild and Coin symbols.

    Line wins pay left to right. All line win symbols must appear on a played line and on consecutive reels, beginning with the far left.

    All wins shown on different win lines will be shown and paid to the player.

    The Wild symbol can substitute for ALL other symbols EXCEPT scatter symbols to help create a line win. Using a Wild symbol to complete a line does not incur any extra multiplier other than the win for the symbol(s) it substitutes for. Only the highest paying win on each line will be counted.

    Via a trigger mechanic, the three Free Spins bonuses available are:

    • Free Spins with Exploding Wilds (Pink Vials)
    • Free Spins with Firework Wilds (Blue Vials)
    • Free Spins with Marching Wilds (Gold Vials)

    Set Your Stake

    On the left of the screen, the player can choose their stake by pressing the + and - buttons. The stake will be shown in the Total Stake meter.

    Features

    To the left-side of the reels, at random, Balthazar may appear and modify a spin with one of five base game modifiers:

    • 5-of-a-Kind modifier: During the main game, on random occasions, this modifier can alter the reels and spin in a 5-of-a-Kind win.
    • Colossal Wilds modifier: During the main game, on random occasions, Balthazar will use his magic and cast a potion on particular symbol positions. These symbol positions will then turn into extra large Wild symbols, covering more than one reel.
    • Wild Reels modifier: During the main game, on random occasions, Balthazar will use his magic and cast a potion on particular reel apertures. These whole reels will then become Wild.
    • Lucky Wilds modifier: During the main game, on random occasions, Balthazar will use his magic and cast a spell on particular symbol positions. These symbol positions will then turn into Wild symbols. If these Wilds are part of winline, they will multiply the win by x7.
    • Big Win modifier: During the main game, on random occasions, a modifier can alter the reels and spin in a guaranteed ‘Big Win’, (minimum x20 of base game stake).

    During the main game play, there will be, at random, Pink, Blue and Gold vial symbols landing in the reel frames. These vials are scatters and can land on any of the 1 to 5 reels, but must land on consecutive reels to trigger the gamble.

    Only 2, 3, 4 or 5 of-a-kind matching vial symbols, landing sequentially from far left to right, will trigger the gamble event.

    The Free Spins gamble event will be activated, showing the player how many Free Spins they can win. The higher the number of vial symbols landed, the higher the number of Free Spins offered.

    PINK VIALS BONUS BLUE VIALS BONUS GOLD VIALS BONUS
    x2 Vials awards 5 Spins x2 Vials awards 5 Spins x2 Vials awards 10 Spins
    x3 Vials awards 15 Spins x3 Vials awards 15 Spins x3 Vials awards 50 Spins
    x4 Vials awards 50 Spins x4 Vials awards 50 Spins x4 Vials awards 150 Spins
    x5 Vials awards 100 Spins x5 Vials awards 100 Spins x5 Vials awards 300 Spins

    The player will be presented with a gamble wheel and can do 3 things:

    • Collect the amount of Free Spins offered to them.
    • Gamble the default 50/50 amount on the gamble wheel.
    • Adjust the odds of winning the gamble and, therefore, the amount of Free Spins that can be won by pressing the + and - buttons.

    Should the player gamble and ‘WIN’, the values will change for the next gamble.

    The gamble will be capped at 300 spins. Any gamble option that would exceed this amount is disabled.

    All wins will be relative to the current Total Bet and the base game paytable.

    Bonus scatter symbols are NOT present during free spins.

    Free Spins with Exploding Wilds (Pink Vials): These Free Spins will spin to a winning or a losing combination. However, whilst the reels are spinning, Balthazar throws on a potion vial which will explode, causing Wilds to be thrown onto the reels. Some the of Wilds will remain on the apertures in random positions, whilst others may extinguish. This exploding ‘Wild’ event will keep occurring until the Free Spins are exhausted.

    Free Spins with Firework Wilds (Blue Vials): These Free Spins will spin to a winning or a losing combination. However, during the spins, a firework will be fired across the reels. Where the firework path crosses a symbol on the reel, it will turn those symbols ‘Wild’. The resulting outcome will have created trails of Wilds across the reels. The Wilds will be used to attempt to create wins from the landing symbol positions.

    Free Spins with Marching Wilds (Gold Vials): These Free Spins will spin to a winning or a losing combination. However, during the spins, three Wild symbols ‘march’ across the reels on the three rows of symbols. Each Wild symbol is dedicated to a row. Per spin, the Wilds will move in counter-wise movement, left to right, then right to left. The Wilds will keep moving per spin until the Free Spins are exhausted.

    Core Jackpots Bonus

    Please note that this game is connecting to the CORE JACKPOT BONUS, (CJB). This game has 7% RTP allocated to the CJB. This is a 7 stage bonus game which can trigger 7 progressive global jackpots which are incremented by ANY Core Gaming content that is designed to plug into this system. This is branded ‘Party Pots’.

    During any spin on the game, a firework rocket may shoot up from the Party Pots area, located at the bottom of the screen. If this explodes, then the Party Pots feature has been activated.

    In each level, (Party), the player will be prompted to pick from 26 stars. The player can find the following:

    • CASH - A cash value that gets added to your Total Win.
    • JACKPOT - Win the current progressive amount for the ‘Party’ in play.
    • COLLECT - Ends the Party event.
    • VIP TICKET - Gain 3 VIP tickets to be upgraded to the next Party.

    It is possible to be upgraded through all 7 parties. The Party event is only over if the player finds ‘COLLECT’.

    A progressive pot is only available to be won during the correlating Party ‘pick me’ level.

    Progressive Party Pots: During each standard reel spin, a proportion of the money staked is added to each cashpot. There are seven progressive pots which are:

    • House Party Pot: Seeded at £50
    • Pool Party Pot: Seeded at £100
    • Club Party Pot: Seeded at £200
    • Beach Party Pot: Seeded at £500
    • Boat Party Pot: Seeded at £1,000
    • Concert Party Pot: Seeded at £5,000
    • Vegas Party Pot: Seeded at £15,000

    The progressive Party Pots consist of a fixed minimum amount, which gradually increases by a percentage of funds inputted into the game until it is won. When a Party Pot is won, it is reset to the seed amount and begins to rise again.

    The progressive Party Pots are available in "Real Play" only.

    Winning a progressive Party Pot neither contributes to, or is affected by, the daily cumulative winnings limit.

    All players contribute 0.1% of each bet placed to each progressive pot on every game, (0.7% in total).

    Party Pots progressive payouts will be rounded down to 2 decimal points.

    All players are eligible to win the progressive Party Pots on every game.

    It is not possible for two players to simultaneously win the same Party Pot. The Party Pot is locked when it is being won. This means that no other bets will be accepted for it and only one player at a time is able to win it.

    In the event of a non-responsive game or a problem during a draw, when the game is next launched, the game will repeat the incomplete draw and display the result to the player.

    In the event of equipment failure or planned/unplanned terminations, after the restart, progressive Party Pot parameters, (including cashpot values and incremental percentages), are fully restored with identical parameters.

    System malfunction voids all pays and plays.

    Buttons

    Pressing the rotating arrow icon above the Spin button will open a dialogue panel from which the player can access the autoplays adjuster. If autoplay is not approved in the jurisdiction, this button will not be available.

    Pressing the ‘settings’ button, on the right-hand side of the base game screen, will open the Paytable information. The player can press the left and right arrow buttons to access all the game information. Pressing the ‘X’ button will return the player to the main game interface.

    Accessing the Paytable will allow the player to toggle the sounds on/off, via the settings button located on the left-hand side of the paytable. On a device that is compatible, the player can also turn on/off the vibrate function. On launch of the game, the default setting will be ON for both of these options.

    + and - buttons on ‘Total Stake’ adjust the player's Total Stake on each spin.

    Paytable

    Only the highest win per bet line is paid.

    Line wins will pay from left to right only.

    Adjustment of the stake will dynamically alter the awards in the paytable.

    Game Recovery

    In the event of a game in real play being interrupted, (i.e. started but not completed due to connectivity issues or accidentally closing the browser, etc.), depending on the previous state of the game, it will either resume from the point of the last spin or display the outcome of the game already in play.

    Any winnings will be correctly credited to the player account and will be exact according to the result prior to the game being interrupted.

    All results are predetermined.
