The Samba Carnival game can be found at casinos offering Play ‘n Go software. Play ‘n Go are a growing provider in the industry and have a rapidly expanding portfolio of both slots games and clients. They do offer a full casino platform, but primarily seem to be used as a bolt on package for extra slots games. Play ‘n Go do publish the Return to Player (RTP)/House Edge information for their slots games within the game help files. As such, we know that the house edge for Samba Carnival is 4.21%.
The Samba Carnival game is made up of 5 reels, each one 3 symbols high. There are 15 paylines, playing from left to right, excluding Scatter symbols, which pay any.
Wild – The “Maraca” symbol is Wild, substituting for all other symbols except Scatter.
Scatter – The Scatter Symbol is the coloured “Bongos”.
Wild – Not only do Wilds substitute for all symbols other than Scatter symbols, they also contribute a multiplier to the bet. Each Wild will be identified with a multiplier, ranging from 2 to 5 times the bet. If you land a winning combination including a Wild, your bet will be multiplied by the amount indicated.
Samba Bonus - To unlock the Samba Bonus you need to reveal 3 sets of bongos on one spin. If you can do this you will need to choose which of the 3 bongos to flip over. When you do so you will be awarded up to 150 time your initial bet.
Samba Carnival is particularly weak offering from Play ‘n Go. Everything about this game screams “Going Through the Motions”, even down to the conventional design, something that Play ‘n Go are normally so much better with. The bonuses are as basic as any bonus can be; there isn’t even a free spin bonus in this game. And the House Edge is a whopping 4.21% against, meaning that not only does Samba Carnival offer little entertainment, it also offers little in terms of value for money too. I genuinely don’t understand why anyone would choose to play this game, even the theme is uninspiring.
