Game in Action
Seeing the carnival in Rio is probably on the bucket list of many. There’s not much like it in the world. But with Samba Carnival you get a little bit of it on your screen at home, whether on your mobile device or on a bigger monitor. The slot is colourful, vibrant even, and very lively, which includes the background music.
Beside the exotic carnival dancers you also get a bunch of tasty looking fruit. Some may be torn between those tasty looking fruit and the tasty looking dancers, to be frank. The slot only offers 15 paylines, but that’s okay, because it’s not that hard to get a winning combination with all symbols showing up stacked, except the wild, though.
Apart from getting stacked symbols, which makes it easier to score winning combinations, this slot also pays all ways, whether from right to left or left to right or in between. Just as long as you get matching symbols on a payline anywhere on the reels you’ll be rewarded with coins.
Look out for the maracas wild. It comes with a multiplier attached, somewhere between 2x and 5x. The wild doesn’t show up often, but it’s always welcome on the reels, especially with a bigger multiplier attached to it.
The main feature, however, is triggered when you get three bongo drums on the reels. That’s really not easy to achieve, mind you, and we’ve not seen it happen very often. When you do get those three drums on the reels, they’ll show up more prominently on the screen and you’re asked to pick one. If you’re not quick, one will be picked for you, mind you.
A coin prize is hidden in all three drums and according to Play’n GO it’s possible to win up to 150 times your stake. More often than not you’re likely to get 20 to 30 times your stake, however.
Other Slot Machines You Might Enjoy
In this medium variance slot you’ll find that mostly it is the multiplier wild that will keep you topped up. The RTP for this slot isn’t overwhelming, but if you get the right drum in the bonus game, you may end up with a very decent win.
Samba Carnival is quite playable, but it’s not extra-ordinary. Somehow we’re missing something here, though it’s hard to tell what. The bonus comes and goes rather too quickly and the thrill of winning something can hardly be enjoyed. Also, do the dancers’ breasts really have to bounce the way they do?
