Something is dastardly wrong with this Mardi Gras game - there are no Wild symbols at all! Those Microgaming guys must have been real drunk to have missed out the Wild symbol, the all-important symbol in any game. Without the Wilds, there can be no fun! The Clown is the Scatter symbol, but is also missing one important trait - the 'scatter' lettering! What the argh! The Clown doesn't even look like an important symbol without those letters. In fact, during playing the game itself, I couldn't even see the Scatter symbols distinctly, because the icon is not highlighted enough, even appearing more dull than the other icons in the game. The Scatter symbol gets lost in the midst of the other symbols. I don't like this at all! Anyway, 5 Scatters pay 100x the line bet, and getting 3 or more of them triggers 5 free spins with a 10x multiplier. Hmm, good, but not really good, because 5 free spins can land you with almost no win at all much too often! Worse still, the Free Spins game cannot be retriggered. Argh! The paytable indicates 'win up to 200,000 coins', or 1000x the total bet. Yeah, right! If you can win that.
The 'Bourbon St' is the Bonus symbol, 5 of which pays 50x the total bet, and getting 3 or more of them triggers the Mardi Gras Bonus game, to win up to 60x the total bet, and can only be triggered in the base game. What do you have to do to win this? Simple, just pick 3 windows and see what reward each lovely bikini lady have for you. Win up to 60x the total bet? Hmm, the best I could get was only 25x, even after many attempts. All the other symbols pay from 2000x the line bet (the Mardi Gras Fever symbol) down to 80x the line bet for 5 of each kind. A very low paytable.
