Mardi Gras Fever Slots

Mardi-Gras-FeverOne of two games with a Mardi Gras theme from Microgaming, this slot has a very colorful and lively theme, with the Carnival participants being the main characters in it and with all sorts of cool costumes and objects being among its symbols. It’s a very attractive slot machine, worthy of the theme that was chosen for it, representing one of the most famous carnivals in the world rather well. A lot of work has gone into making this slot machine, and it shows in the quality of the design.

This 5 reel slot machine offers 20 paylines filled with interesting symbols, among them some that give you free spins, bonus games, and which have scatter abilities. A top payout of $10,000 is offered by it.

Features of Mardi Gras Fever

While the game lacks the usual wild symbols, it offers scatters instead, free spins, multipliers and a bonus game. All in all, I’d say it does quite well in this area.

The first of the two scatter symbols is the Jester. It’s not only the one to trigger the free spins, but it also offers the biggest prizes out of the two symbols. Depending on how many of these Jesters are scattered on the game’s reels, you can win between 2x and 100x the total bet.

Free Games Feature

The free spins get triggered whenever a minimum of three Jesters are present on the five reels, it doesn’t matter where exactly. In exchange, you get only 5 free spins from the slot, but the multiplier for the wins is at 10x.


Even with the very limited number of free spins, it’s a great feature since the wins are so much bigger than normal. The only downside would be the fact that you can’t retrigger the free spins, plus the bonus game can’t be started from within this feature.

Mardi Gras Bonus Game

The slot’s only bonus game gets triggered by the second scatter symbol, the one with the Bourbon St. sign. These also offer prizes, between 1x and 50x the value of the total bet.


The bonus game gets triggered by 3, 4 or 5 scattered Bourbon St. signs. The next screen will show you a building from that street, with a total of 12 balconies. You pick a couple of doors, they open, and they reveal what your prize is, in coins.


Betting options and jackpots

The game has 20 lines and it lets you choose how many should be active each round. The activation is done with at least one coin, though you can use a maximum of 10 if you want to. The coins are also modified as needed, within the $0.01 to $0.50 range. When you add up all those options, you end up with $5 line bets, or $100 total bets.

With top prizes of only 2,000x, that’s a jackpot of 20,000 coins, or up to $10,000.

Design and symbols

The design of the game is one of its biggest strengths. It can be a lot of fun to play through it, with the quality of the symbols being among the best you will see in modern slot machines, and that’s saying a lot. All objects are themed, with beautiful girls dancing, with jesters, jazz singers, masks and others that are just as interesting. New Orleans is visible behind the game area, with buildings that were made in the local style.
