As the name suggests, the carnival or circus-themed slot from Yggdrasil Gaming takes wacky and quirky and rolls it into one slot game. The playing grid consists of 5x8 reels with a whopping 32,768 payways. The max payout is 217,600, but there doesn’t seem to be a jackpot with the game. The betting range is small, starting at 0.50 up to 25.
Take the game with you as you go on your mobile with colorful characters and vivid symbols.
Buster Hammer Carnival has a lower RTP than the standard, at 95.97%, but still enough for players to give it a try. With the jackpot and bonus features in play, the return to player can be catapulted to 96.34%, which isn’t bad at all. The volatility doesn’t put a damper on things as it’s rated medium-high on the scale.
The game symbols are one of the main attractions of Buster Hammer Carnival. What you will see includes the below:
Low Paying Royals
As with most other games, the royals, or 10, J, Q, K, and A are the lowest paying symbols.
High Paying Symbols
The high-paying symbols are ones that match the theme, such as the hot dogs, targets, tickets, and more.
The wild is in the form of a hammer, Buster’s hammer to be exact. It is what the strong man wields and what you need to replace all the symbols on the middle reels.
The scatter in the game is the logo, which is responsible for bringing you the mighty free spins.
As we said, the free spins are triggered thanks to the game logo. The free spins are mighty in the sense that they come in tens and can earn you 50x your initial bet. The free spins also have a hand in adding extra reels to the playing grid, which will give you a 5x8 playing field and increase your payways to 32,768.
The hammer wilds can be added to the grid and substitute and replace any symbol to give you even more chances at the max win. However, to land more wilds, you need to place wagers. The higher the wager, the more reels the wilds can potentially land on.
Even with just one wild in a winning combo, you can activate the wild striker, which enlists Buster, the strong man, to use his hammer. Potential hammers on the reels he hits can turn into golden hammers.
Buster Hammer Carnival does not offer a jackpot.
What was very enjoyable was the design of the entire game. The theme is a fun and wacky one but also has an element of cuteness added to it. The grid seems to be under the big top tent, and the carnival rides and games are blurry in the background. We do wish we could have seen more carnival characters, but there is no denying the gameplay in Buster Hammer Carnival.
As you can imagine, the soundtrack for this slot also fits into the theme with brass instruments and loud percussions.
Yggdrasil Gaming has done it again with a very richly themed slot game. The large and colorful graphics are very eye-catching, and the music pairs very well with the visuals. The RTP isn’t very impressive, but with the help of the bonus features, the max win is at hand.
The betting range isn’t very broad, and even the max bet is affordable by players who may be more risk aversive. All in all, Buster Hammer Carnival is an excellent game for players that like a well-designed slot and decent returns.
