Samba Carnival from Play'n GO: Slot Review - time for some Brazilian beats

Slot game Samba Carnival by Play'n GO impresses with its multiplier feature and summery tunes. This Gaming Revolution review tests the online game and found little reasons for criticism.

While Samba Carnival by Play'n GO is not ultra modern in design, it is nevertheless super advanced in terms of technology. This slot game simply never lags, loads fast and runs smooth. Some great features – e.g. autoplay, paytable and bet max buttons – are displayed prominently in rich colours.

Special Features

So what’s there to do at the Copacabana, except for watching exotic ladies dance and shaking your own booty in tune with the Samba? Hit spin, whether on mobile or desktop. One of the highest paying symbols in Samba Carnival by Play n’Go is the lady with the purple feather-shawl. Five of these result in a player winning 2.500 coins. Aside from this pretty generous symbol, the slot game also comes with several bonus features.

The musical maracas are the wild symbol in Samba Carnival. These are a substitute for any other symbol (except for the scatter symbol, but that is pretty standard) to help players create winnings. The wilds in Samba Carnival are of different values, which make this feature more interesting. The values range from two to five. This means that a win resulting from a wild valued at three also multiplies your winnings by three.

Another great feature in this online game is the Bogo Bonus pick game. You have a chance to play this game when you receive at least three drum symbols. These can appear anywhere on the reel but have to appear simultaneously. Once redirected, a player can pick one set of drums, and - with a little luck – wins up to 150-times his stake.

This is pretty decent, but I was surprised to find that this Play'n GO slot game does not come with a free spins feature.

Theme, Graphics and Sound

The name indicates what this slot game by Play'n GO is all about. Of course, the online game combines energetic music – Samba – with colourful festivities – Carnival. To capture the atmosphere of a Latin American carnival, the games maker came up with a night-blue background, starring fireworks, and symbols, depicting exotic fruit and traditional samba dancers. The tune, unsurprising, is great, and possible the stand-out feature in this online slot game. If you love samba, turn up the volume, hit spin and enjoy.

Win lines, Payouts and Jackpots

Samba Carnival by Play'n GO can result in fairly good wins. With very good multipliers available in the game, a number of your wins can rise rapidly. The great thing with multipliers is that it doesn’t matter if a player plays with relatively little money. He could still potentially leave with loads. Of course, a player can increase his potential returns even more by placing higher stakes, but that also comes with higher risks. With that in mind, Samba Carnival is best played with stakes that you feel comfortable with.

If I have been lucky in the first few rounds, I tend to put a percentage of my returns aside and increase my stake marginally.

Our Verdict on Samba Carnival

Samba Carnival may not be the most impressive Play'n GO slot game in terms of graphics, but it sure is a great one when it comes to multipliers. The great tune further adds to the overall positive impression the slot game makes. This slot game certainly creates a cheerful atmosphere. That, however, is unsurprising given its summery theme.
