Mardi Gras Slots

Mardi-GrasMardi Gras is a classic slot machine from Microgaming, which is themed around the famous festival with the same name, which takes place in New Orleans each year. With great parties and parades going on, with delicious food being eaten by those that attend, Mardi Gras has gained a great reputation and it’s definitely worthy of having a slot themed around it.

This slot offers you a rather classic combination, with 3 reels and a single payline on them. It’s just a much of a classic when it comes to the symbols offered inside, or the lack of features that might appeal to some, and annoy others. The top jackpot advertised by the slot is worth a maximum of $20,000.

Features of Mardi Gras

Despite the colorful and party themed graphics that are used in the game, there isn’t much else to entertain you as you play it. There are no wild symbols in this game, no scatters, bonus games or multipliers. It’s a very simple slot machine in that regard, using only classic symbols and completely lacking the features that other 3 and 5 reel slots are including these days.

Betting options and jackpots

The betting system is the usual kind, with three coins used for one line, but certain symbols only give awards when all of them are used. Each coin has a value of up to $5, so the maximum bet possible in this game is at $15.

The use of one or two coins will give you access to prizes from the Bar symbols, while the third coin also unlocks the 7 symbols, which pay a lot better. It’s a system that I’m not a fan of, but it does give you a top payout of 4,000 coins, or $20,000.

Design and symbols

The design is quite good, especially for a game with a classic influence that is unmistakable. The background picture shows off the Mardi Gras carnival, with people wearing masks, dancing and just having lots of fun. The reels are purple, the paytable mixes pink and orange as well, and it has only Bar and 7 symbols on it. The fact that both the symbols and the reels are a bit more colorful helps the slot’s design, so it doesn’t feel like no effort was put into it.

Symbols: Pink 7 (4,000 coins), Blue 7 (1,000 coins), Three Bar (90 coins), Two Bar (60 coins) and One Bar (30 coins).

Is It Worth Playing?

The game is quite simple, but it does have only five potential symbols, so creating winning combinations shouldn’t be too difficult.

You will find Mardi Gras at any online casino which chooses to use software from Microgaming, playable either for free or for real money.
