Play Samba Carnival online: Check out our slot review below

Hi and welcome to our latest video slot Samba Carnival from Play’n GO. As you might imagine, this slot has a samba theme which helps you dream your way to the carnivals in Rio. Its layout is fairly normal with 5 reels over 3 rows, and you can activate up to 15 paylines. Only the highest win per line is awarded if you have more than one winning combination on a payline. There are not that many different kinds of symbols available in this game but that’s more a pro than a con. The low paying symbols are all fruits with an umbrella and straw in them just like you want it when getting a drink on your vacation, these symbols look like pineapples, watermelons, oranges, and limes. The higher paying symbols all look like female Samba dancers dressed in green, blue, and purple. 
What would a game from Play’n GO be without Wilds and Scatters though? There are such symbols available in this game of course, the Wilds look like maracas and Scatters look like drums. Wilds will replace any symbol, except for Scatters, if it gives a winning combination but they will also multiply the prize for each winning combination up to five times! When three or more Scatter-symbols are visible anywhere on the reels when they have stopped, it will start the Bongo bonus round where you get to bang on one of the three drums that appears on your screen. Bang on the correct drum and you can win up to 150 times your bet! Samba Carnival also has a gamble feature with the opportunity to multiply your winnings after every round. If you choose to do so, you will have to guess the colour or suit of a face-down card. You can choose to gamble up to five times in a row and win a total of 2500 coins.
How much do you know about Samba? It’s both an Argentinian dance (albeit the spelling usually begins with a z instead of an s), the name of a software, and a Brazilian form of dance. This video slot obviously has the theme of the Brazilian dance form. You might think that it originated from Brazil but that is not entirely the case since its roots stem from Africa thanks to the slave trade which started in the 1600’s. Even the music has its roots from Africa, the tempo and beats originate from Batuque who has similar musical structure with no song. Since Brazil was heavily trafficked along the coast due to trade routes, other music and dance genres which got incorporated into Samba and helped create the unique style of today. Have you ever seen a South American football game? If so, you have probably both heard the music and seen the fans dancing Samba to support their players.
So, now you have read through the basics of this game and hopefully learned a bit of the history of Samba. Time to play Play’n GO’s new masterpiece, the video slot Samba Carnival. Good luck!
