The Carnival of Venice, or Venetian Carnival, is a traditional annual Carnival celebrated in Venice and is globally famous for the wearing of grandiose and colourful masks. The Venetian Carnival was outlawed by the King of Austria in 1797, and the wearing of masks at any time or event during the year forbidden.
In 1979, in an effort to restore and revive Venetian culture and traditions as well as general morale, the Italian Government re-instated the Carnival – it has returned to being the cornerstone of not only Venetian tradition, but it has also grown to be one of the largest tourist attractions ever, providing a much needed yearly economic boost for Italy.
The Carnival of Venice is the central theme for Venetian Rose slot, featuring classic symbolism so distinctive of the well-loved annual event.
The game features 5 reels and 25 paylines, and is played against the romantic backdrop of the S-shaped Grand Canal. The game’s special feature is a Free Spins Bonus Round.
The familiar Gamble Feature is once again included by the developer – have a go at multiplying winnings by X2 or X4 by wagering a guess at the colour or suit of a concealed card.
Venetian Rose Slot Symbols
True to form, the masks are widely featured: symbols including both an artsy mask on its own, as well as one worn by a mysterious gentleman. There is also an Italian beauty (the Venetian Rose), a pair of opera binoculars, a traditional fan and a gondola floating along peacefully.
Playing cards symbols appear to have been written by a Calligrapher; offering lower payouts than themed symbols.
The Venetian Rose is the game’s wild symbol, standing in for all other symbols besides the scatter. The Venetian Rose will also double up all payouts won whenever she plays her part.
The scatter symbol is, quite befittingly, the Mask symbol. Gathering three or more anywhere on the reels during any one spin will activate the Venetian Rose slot Free Spins Bonus Round.
