Pragmatic Play introduced on Thursday a new slot title that combines fairground and circus themes with zombies. The content provider said that Zombie Carnival features circus tents filled with a variety of undead characters, including ringleaders, clowns, acrobats, and even some blood-thirsty animals.
The title provides 4,096 ways to win and eight regular paying symbols. The title’s Scatter is suitably embodied by a brain, and only appears on reels two, three, four, and five. Furthermore, the Wild is characterized by a ravenous bear that only appears in the Free Spins round, and there is a Mystery icon that randomly transforms into one of the paying symbols at the end of every spin.
When two or more Scatters land in the base game, the bonus round is triggered, causing them to transform into Wilds and remain on the reels for the duration of the feature. Players are awarded six free spins at the start, and whenever a Scatter lands on the reels, the closest Wild will move towards it and consume it, taking its position and increasing the multiplier by 1x each time.
Roll up, roll up! Zombie Carnival™ will transport you to a circus tent of post-life creatures!
Brain scatter symbols offer up the chance to land Free Spins of even more festival fun across the 4×6 grid.

In certain jurisdictions, customers can utilize the Buy Free Spins feature to skip straight to the bonus round, at the cost of 80x their bet.
Yossi Barzely, Chief Business Development Officer at Pragmatic Play, said: “Capturing players’ imaginations with a vibrant theme and amusingly scary creatures, Zombie Carnival strikes a careful balance between horror and humor to deliver a well-rounded product to our audiences. With our last few slot releases delivering more wholesome themes, Zombie Carnival disrupts the pattern and provides a sense of variety to the offering, and we are thrilled with how it has taken shape.”
Zombie Carnival release follows recent hits for the company including Wild West Gold Megaways, Cleocatra, and Little Gem, which reside amongst a collection of over 200 titles in Pragmatic Play’s portfolio. The company currently produces up to six new slot titles a month, while also delivering Live Casino and Bingo games as part of its multi-product portfolio, available through one single API.
