Microgaming offers more than 800 games at Australian online casinos and therefore there will be several pokie machines with the same theme. Mardi Gras id being celebrated on February 28 and the three pokie games with these theme are already drawing high traffic at online casinos like Casino Mate, 32Red and Royal Vegas.
The first of these is Mardi Gras, which is a single payline and three reels classic pokie game. The reels are set in the background of a Rio style parade. Unfortunately the symbols are not thematic, consisting of different types of 7s and BARs. You can wager up to 3 coins and the coin denomination varies from AU$0.25 to AU$5.00. With 3 coins wagered the maximum payout is 4,000 coins, which introduces volatility in the pokie game.
Mardi Gras Fever is a video pokie and therefore more popular. The symbols on the reels include many of the sights that you would see in the parades such as Samba dancer, band, jester, Queen of the Carnival, crown, cocktails and alligator. The highest line payout is awarded by the game logo. Three or more scattered jester symbols trigger five free spins with a payout multiplier of 10 times. Three or more scattered Bourbon Street symbols trigger the bonus game on the second screen. You have to select three of the windows from those displayed on the screen. A Samba dancer will appear in each window and award bonus credits. Mardi Gras is a 20 paylines online video pokie. You can wager up to 10 coins per payline with the coin denominations varying from AU$0.01 to AU$0.50.
The third Microgaming online pokie with the Mardi Gras theme is Carnaval. This is the Latin spelling for the word. The symbols are bold and bright in keeping with the theme. The Carnaval logo awards the top line payout of 5,000 times the line bet. The other high paying thematic symbols are Samba girl with her feathered head dress, clown, pendant and the trumpet. The low paying symbols are the usual playing card icons. The Wild Logo is the wild symbol and the Scatter Logo is the scatter symbol. Play this video pokie with the audio enabled because the sounds of drum beat and trumpet music create the festive atmosphere. Carnaval is a much older online pokie so you do not have any free spins or bonus games on the second screen. But its attraction lies in its high variance.
