Samba Carnival Gameplay and Bonus Features
For a bet of 15 coins on 15 paylines, the four Fruit symbols will only be able to give you a small fraction of your stake back for a three-of-a-kind win, as the win will be 3, 4, 5 or 10 coins. For a four-of-a-kind win you won't be able to make any money unless the symbol you landed is Pineapple, in which case you'll get 50 coins or more than 3x your total bet.
But the main three symbols, the Brazilian dancers, can really pay well. The Green Dancer can pay 500 coins, the Blue Dancer can pay 1000 coins, and the Pink Dancer can pay 2500 coins for five-of-a-kind, which is more than 166x your total bet if you're playing 15 coins on 15 paylines. If you're playing with a smaller number of paylines, then you win a much larger percentage of your total bet, but the variance increases as well.
In addition to this, the game has four different types of Wilds that bring a x2, x3, x4 and x5 win multiplier when they're part of the winning combination. All Wilds are a very rare sight on your board, but when they do land they'll make the most of this generous paytable. It's possible to win more than 800x your bet with that x5 win multiplier – on a single winning payline.
Samba Carnival doesn't have a free spins game, it is replaced by a bonus round that is triggered when you land three Samba Scatter symbols. It's not really much of a game, as you'll just get to pick one of the three symbols to reveal a prize that can be up to 150x your bet. But despite this bonus game, the multiplier Wilds are the real stars of this slot game and the main thing you'll be on the lookout for. A few Pink Dancers and a Multiplier Wild can bring you a huge win if you're playing for real money.
