No Limit City returns with its unique take on slots, serving up more highly volatile action with Harlequin Carnival. The game is set against a backdrop of a garden carnival, with lush blooms cascading down from a terraced arch.

It is a departure from other Joker themed slots like Joker Pro, which uses the Joker Hat but not Harlequins themselves and is very much boxed in. In Harlequin Carnival we look to match symbol payouts across the game’s 20 paylines, with the ultimate aim to land the game’s Harlequin xNudge Wild and Harlequin Bonus as we seek maximum payouts from this highly volatile slots garden party.

Pros & Cons

  • High volatility slot.
  • Excellent Wild Nudge feature.
  • Lucrative Free Spins bonus game.
  • High volatility slot.
  • Low payouts for low-paying symbols.
  • Paylines rather than Way Wins.

How to Play

In Harlequin Carnival you choose your bet from the set betting range. As with other No Limit City slots the betting toggles here are user friendly, featuring a super easy betting interface. Click the Dollar Sign to load the betting interface screen, select your bet then hit the large Spin button located to the right of the reels on desktop and below the reels when playing on mobile.

Match symbols left to right in the patterns of the slot’s 20 paylines to complete winning combos. Wild xNudges and the Harlequin Bonus help to reach those high volatility payouts. All bonus and payout information is located in the pay table.


Ornate Card Suites befitting of a Harlequin Carnival make up the game’s lower paying symbols, which we need to score four across a payline to return our stake. The higher paying symbols are made up of various attendees at the carnival, all wearing plush Masquerade masks. When we land them in winning combos across the game’s 20 paylines they animate neatly, the revellers moving their masks aside to reveal their faces.

The Harlequin Wild appears as a Stacked Wild on reels 2, 3 and 4 and, like in ELK’s classic Wild Toro slot, the Wilds move across the reels to help complete winning combos. The Harlequin Bonus Scatters appear on every reel, with three or more launching the bonus game.


Harlequin Carnival features the in-game Wild xNudges bonus, which automatically kickstarts the Harlequin Respin. This is additional to the game’s main Harlequin Bonus, which is your ticket to the game’s biggest jackpots.

Bonus Name Bonus Explanation
Wild x Nudges

Any part of a Harlequin Wild appearing on reels 2, 3 or 4 will nudge into a fully stacked Wild. Each of these Wilds begins with a x1 multiplier.

Harlequin Respin

The stacked Harlequin Wild triggers the Harlequin Respin. The Stacked Wild begins with a x1 multiplier then moves from right to left across the reels. The multiplier increases with every move.

Harlequin Bonus

Three Harlequin Scatters in any position activate 8 Harlequin Bonus spins. A stacked xNudge Harlequin Wild automatically triggers on reel 5 with a x3 multiplier, then moves right to left until it reaches reel 1. The multiplier increases with every spin up to a maximum of x7. Additional Scatters award an extra spin, while additional xNudge Wilds can also land during the feature.
