The Creepy Carnival is an online slot developed by Nolimit City. It is a horror-themed game with a 5x3 layout. The base game has 20 paylines but there are 40 paylines during free spins. Other bonus features include re-spins with multipliers, Star Spins and Sticky Wilds. The RTP is 96.07%.


When it comes to Nolimit City free slots, they don’t come much darker than the five reels of The Creepy Carnival. Luckily, it’s packed with so many bonus features it’s more than worth it. Double your paylines from 20 to 40 in free spins, enjoy multipliers and Sticky Wilds during re-spins and if you’re really lucky find the special Star Spin. Just don’t let the horrific clown scare you away.

Theme, Graphics & Soundtrack

The name says it all really. The Creepy Carnival takes place in a creepy carnival, the reels set in what could be a puppet theatre, the shadowy outline of striped tents in the background. It’s a dark slot, with the only real colour coming from some of the equally creepy symbols. The vivid red of the clown’s hair makes a shocking contrast to the gloom around him and makes him impossible to ignore. Other symbols, including ringmaster, strongman, monkey, polar bear and tiger, are also bolder than the world around them. That means you can’t escape their gruesome features. This isn’t a slot for the easily discomforted, especially with the unsettled soundtrack. It’s the kind of music you hear in a horror movie when the protagonists enter the haunted house and the suspense builds and you know they’ll soon find something horrible.

The Creepy Carnival RTP and Variance 

The 96.07% RTP of The Creepy Carnival puts it just over the hallowed 96% threshold that is generally considered a good average return. Nolimit City hasn't released an official variance for The Creepy Carnival, so the best way to find out how the size of wins compare to their frequency is give our free demo a try.

How to Play The Creepy Carnival

It may take some nerve but if you want to step into this carnival, this is how you do it:

  1. Start on the left of the screen. Right in the bottom corner is the familiar speaker symbol that always represents volume. Click it to mute and unmute the sound.
  2. Above the volume is a button with three dots on it that will open the menu. The first page you see will include game rules and the paytable so you know exactly how The Creepy Carnival works.
  3. While the info page is open you’ll see two other buttons on the righthand side of the screen. The top opens game history, the bottom one is for settings. You can go here to switch music, sound effects and spacebar to spin on or off as you desire.
  4. Back on the main page and right of the volume button is a dollar sign that opens your bet options. Pick the best amount for you.
  5. If you’re curious as to how the paytable and bet amount can combine for big wins, the big yellow star on the left of the screen will show you a list of the top wins of all time.
  6. Now we move to the righthand side of the main screen. The little play button is autoplay. You can set the reels to keep spinning until your balance increases or decreases a certain amount, until you reach your single win limit or until they reach a certain amount of spins.
  7. Next to autoplay is the lightning bolt that will switch Fast Play on or off if you want the reels to turn quicker or slower.
  8. There’s only one control left. Press the big spin button and your game will start. Just don’t forget your budget.

Bet & Win Sizes

Bet options go from 0.20 to 100, which is a pretty decent range. As you change them the paytable will adapt, but even the lowest bet level will pay the following if you’re lucky enough to match a symbol five times:

10 - 0.20

J - 0.25

Q - 0.30

K - 0.35

A - 0.40

Bear - 0.50

Strongman - 0.70

Monkey - 1.25

Ringmaster - 1.75

Clown - 3.00

The Creepy Carnival Bonus Features


Every time you’re lucky enough to score a winning spin, your winning symbols will turn again for no cost. That’s an extra chance for a prize. It’s especially exciting because a win with your first re-spin comes with a x2 multiplier, and the second re-spin comes with x3.

Sticky Wilds

Another advantage of re-spins is they come with Sticky Wilds that stay in place until the feature is over, again increasing your chances of a line. It’s not quite a wild multiplier bonus, but it’s still wilds and multipliers together.

Free Spins

This is an impressive free spins round. Start with ten free spins for three scatters, then see every new scatter add five more. While playing your free spins, every new scatter is another three spins. Find two scatters and those three spins are joined by a complete retrigger of the feature. You could have up to 70 free spins, played on 40 paylines instead of 20 and with a x5 multiplier.

Star Spin

One free Star Spin will be awarded if you collect 13 high value symbols (so themed rather than cards). It also comes with two extra wilds.

The Creepy Carnival Review

Not everyone likes to be scared, but if some creepiness is your thing then The Creepy Carnival is bursting with extra features, all depicted in the most atmospheric way. If you can bear some of the more monstrous looking symbols, there are some very big winning opportunities. If you do like it shadowy and monstrous, why not try the Dark Joker Rises slot next?
