Are you ready to travel to medieval Venice and enter a wondrous party in Harlequin Carnival?

This amazing game from Nolimit City is your free pass to this masquerade.

Harlequin Carnival is an aesthetically beautiful game, as the developers stretched their imagination and created an amazing masked world of aristocratic partying.

This is a 5-reel, 20-pay line title from this creative team...

...and yet another one to feature their xNudge Wilds and Bonus Buy option. 

Harlequins refer to the diamond-patterned, masked characters used in pantomimes, and here...

...the harlequin character brings the power of xNudge to the reels, which comes with a new twist not seen in previous releases that use the feature.

Theme & Design

The first thing that’s going to hit you right in the face as soon as you load the game up is its unique visuals. 

You’ll see a virtual world of traditional carnivals…

.. with a lot of gorgeous face masks unfold right before your eye. 

The game whisks you back to the 17th century when folk donned masks at parties, which certainly add a touch of nobility to it.

The background is merely fantastic, showing the stairs to a Venetian palazzo rising from the canal landing, while...

...colourful flower arrangements ornament the palace’s arch that is spanning the entire width of the screen. 

Flanked by two statues, the reels are dominated by masked people and the harlequin...

...while you will instantly notice the classic Danza Húngara No.5 number from Johannes Brahms & José María Damunt playing from the moment you enter the game. 

The designs of the high-win symbols are marvellous as well, and they become animated after each winning spin. 

Symbols include spade, heart, diamond and club Ace playing cards which are set on beautiful golden cards, as well as 5 different masqueraded characters.

Betting Options

Harlequin Carnival is a title with five reels, three rows and 20 fixed pay lines, where wins are awarded for three to five matching symbols or…

...in combination with a wild on a line from left to right only. 

You can immerse yourself into the lavish Venetian carnival society from 0.20 to 100 credits per spin and there are up to 1,000 auto-spins available.

The game has maximum volatility with a default RTP of 96.14%, and...

...you can play it on desktop, mobile and tablet devices as Nolimit City uses HTML5 technology for all of their titles.

There are 9 regular symbols involved, divided into 4 low pays and 5 high. 

The low pays are ornately decorated gold playing cards displaying the ace of spades, hearts, diamonds, and clubs and...

...rewarding 3.75x to 4x your bet for a single five of a kind...

They are followed by five carnival revellers in differently coloured masksgrapevines, bird’s beak, cat, crescentmoon and a smiling sun. 

Hit five on a line to win 5x to 15x your stake.

The red-black dressed harlequin is the Wild, appearing in a 1×3 size and...

...triggering the xNudge Wild mechanic when it lands only in partial view. 

It performs the usual substitution duties in the base game and free spins, while...

...five across the reels will also award 15x your bet. 

The harlequin’s bust marked with ‘Bonus’ is the Scatter, turning into a 1x1 scatter wild during the bonus game.

Now, let’s see if the features are as aristocratic as the theme and paytable!

Special Features

As already mentioned, the core of the gameplay is...

...the expanding xNudge Wild. 

The 3-row tall Harlequin Wild symbol exists on all reels and will always be fully visible. 

Each shift increases the Wild multiplier by 1. 

Several appearing on the same spin are added for an overall win multiplier, while the maximum per reel is x3 which can further increase during the next feature.

Also, landing a xNudge Wild will trigger the Harlequin Respin feature. 

After expanding, all Harlequin xNudge Wilds in view will walk to the left by one reel on each respin until they reach the leftmost reel. 

At the same time, the win multiplier is increased by x1 for each step. 

Hitting three Scatters anywhere on the reels in one spin or collecting three throughout a respin feature will trigger...

...Harlequin Bonus with 8 free spins. 

Here, you are guaranteed xNudge Wild harlequin on reel 5 with x3 multiplier. 

The wild multiplier will increase by 1 for each step to the left that the Wild does.

Collect 3 more bonus jokers to activate another xNudge Wild on reel 5. 

Lastly, some players may have the option of skipping the base game and heading straight to the main event. 

This is possible in some countries with the Nolimit Bonus Buy feature which costs 70 times the stake for 3 bonus symbols on the next spin.

To Conclude

Nolimit City surely knows how to produce beautiful-looking titles and that’s the case with Harlequin Carnival. 

Besides its stunning visuals, this Carnival-themed game boasts the developer's popular xNudge element, plus...

...there are the Free Spins with progressive multipliers and re-spins. 

Add to that a top win potential of over 5,000 times bet and...

...this reel journey to the lavish Venetian event will be even more enticing.
