All software providers to Australian online casinos offer Carnival themed online pokies in their portfolio, but none is better than Samba Brazil from Playtech. The name says it all. Samba Brazil is live at all Playtech online casinos like Omni Casino and Mansion Casino.
The reels in the Samba Brazil video pokie are set in a background of ostrich feathers. It is the bright and colourful symbols that create the Carnival atmosphere. The high paying symbols are the Samba girls, fire eater, maracas and drum. Watch out for the win animations in the fire eater symbol. The low paying symbols are the usual playing card icons. These have been designed in the green and yellow colours of Brazil. The Samba Brazil logo is the scatter symbol. The maximum scatter payout for five scatter symbols is 100 times the total bet.
Three or more scatter symbols landing anywhere on the reels trigger the Samba Music Bonus. You have to pick from the maracas displayed on the screen and will earn cash prizes, free spins or free spins multipliers with each pick. After the picks have been completed, you will play out the earned free spins at the determined multiplier. The free spins can be retriggered indefinitely.
The Samba girl symbols are the most exciting. There are two types of Samba girl symbols but they have identical payouts. And they start paying out from two like symbols appearing from left to right. The payout for five like symbols is 5,000 times the line bet. The Samba girl symbols also pay out when they appear in mixed combinations. This payout is understandably lower at 750 times the line bet for five mixed symbols on an active payline. The Samba girl symbols can also appear in stacks of two or three on reels 2, 3 and 4 and this increases the frequency of winning combinations. What is the use of a Samba girl symbol without win animations? For this you need a stack is of three symbols in a winning combination. Then the three symbols are converted into a full length animated figure gyrating wildly.
Samba Brazil is a 25 selectable paylines online pokie game. You wager one coin per payline which can vary from AU$0.20 to AU$500 credits. You will find all the usual Playtech functionalities for customizing the slot game to your liking, including the speed and sound options. An Auto Play is also available.
