Carry On Camping Slot Review
Just when you think that 1960s Batman may well be the coolest retro-themed slot of the year, Sky Vegas trump everyone with their brand new Carry On Camping game. It’s a 5 reel 20 payline slot that features many of the stars from the Carry On movies including Sid James, Hattie Jacques, Kenneth Williams, Peter Butterworth, Bernard Bresslaw, Terry Scott and Barbara Windsor.
Carry On Camping is the one where Sid and Bernard Bresslaw take their girlfriends to Paradise Camp, which they think is a nudist camp. Instead they end up at Mr Fiddler’s establishment with hilarious consequences. They’re joined by Kenneth Williams and his school girls – and yes this is the one where Barbara Windsor’s bikini top flies off!
The game mirrors the movie perfectly. It is bright and colourful and a cartoon version of Sid James accompanies your spins. His unmistakable laugh can be heard throughout and there are occasional other soundbites from the original movie. Game play is also accompanied by the familiar Carry On tune.
Features wise you have expanding wilds, free spins and a bonus round. The free spins are activated when at least three ‘free spins’ symbols appear on the reels, whilst the bonus round comes into play when two bonus symbols appear on reels 1 to 4 plus a special symbol on reel 5. This special symbol dictates the bonus round that you’ll play.
The bonus rounds you can play are Bab’s Lucky 7s where you get free spins on an old style 3 reel fruit machine; Sid’s Wild Night where selected symbols will become wilds; Haggard’s Havoc sees all the symbols blown off the screen and a new set will then blow on to replace them, potentially creating new wins; and Kenneth’s Carnage where the reels will respin to hopefully get you a win.
We took Carry On Camping slots for a spin and have to admit to loving it. There’s something quite hypnotic about playing to the familiar tunes whilst Sid James laughs away. There’s a wonderful familiarity about the game and it offers a lovely sense of nostalgia. There are occasional clips of the movie including Terry Scott being attacked by a bull!
You can play Carry On Camping slots from as little as 20p a spin up to a maximum of £500. There’s also an opportunity to trial the game in demo mode at Sky Vegas, where it’s an exclusive slot.
What will be interesting now is whether Core Gaming will introduce further ‘Carry On’ slot games.. after all there’s a whole host of potential options and themes. We hope that Carry On Camping isn’t the only one!
