Game Review: Lion Carnival

Lion Carnival online slot game.

Travel to the Far East without getting out of your seat when you sign up to play the Lion Carnival online casino game. It’s a game packed with lucky lions, up to 30 paylines, mystery multipliers and a Fortune Stream.

And it’s just one of the many variety games you can play at Borgata Online, where the thrills, spills and excitement of winning – and the drama of almost winning – make for a nail-biting time away from the mundane.

Need any more reasons to sign up and play Lion Carnival? Ok, let’s unpack them for you.  

Game overview

Lion Carnival is a 30-line online slots game that draws you into the gameplay with its mesmerizing spin action. You’re actually watching 15 lines spinning across the screen while you wait for the dancing lions to bring you good fortune.  

The dragon costumes are the highest-paying symbols, while the low payers are the card symbols. In this game, as in many other slot games at online casinos, there are also wilds and scatters, giving you even more to play for.

How to play

As with all online slot games, you place your bet, hit the play button and hope for the best. In this case, by hoping that you get three, four or five matching symbols for a payout. The higher your bet, the more you’re likely to win if you do make a match.

Wilds appear often enough to set the lion among the pigeons and up the ante. These take the place of the basic symbols and result in an even better payout if your luck holds. And, if fortune is smiling down on you, the Action Stacked Symbols and additional winning lions that appear could up your thrill even more.

Of course, if this is your first time at the game, we suggest you try the demo option before switching to an online slot machine with real money. The demo option will show how the game is played, what the scatter and wilds look like and how betting works.

Konami, the producers of Lion Carnival, have kept the graphics fairly basic but have added vibrant Asian-themed colors and graphics as well as an energetic spin process. There are enough bright lights and big spins to keep you waiting for just the right combination of lions, balls and mystery multipliers when you’re playing these slots online.

The screen is easy to navigate with its Auto Play, Bet per Line and Max Bet buttons conveniently placed near the Spin button. To ensure you get the best out of your game time, there’s a Help button just to the left of the other Action buttons and this covers the game’s basic rules.

Your Balance and Pay Out amounts are also shown with these buttons, making it simple for you to calculate what your next move will be.


Land on three, four or five bonus symbols and you trigger five, eight, 12 or 20 free games, while the always-on Mystery Multiplier gives that big win or jackpot. Win progressives and bonus prizes by taking advantage of the Fortune Streams side bet based on the old-school “coin pusher” arcade games.

Bonuses and jackpots

Of course, you can’t play at a casino online without expecting some additional bonuses and jackpots. With Lion Carnival, the scatter pays out 10x your bet and gives you an extra 20 free spins, while each color of lion pays out a certain amount. So keep a lookout for your favorite color.
