Games Related to Carnaval
Carnaval is the Spanish and Portuguese version of Carnival and it is a name most closely associated with the great Carnivals of the America's, most notably the Rio Carnaval in Brazil.
This offering from Microgaming is a celebration of just such events and shares the same bright, effervescent colour scheme that has become a tradition at these massively popular celebrations.
As you would expect, the Carnaval Slot is something of an assault on the eyes with a cornucopia of bright colours on screen at any one time. Golds, vivid reds, purples, yellows, blues, greens, you name it, there's probably some variation of that colour on screen at any one time.
Add to this a gentle samba beat and the sound of excited crowd chatter and you could almost be transported into the heart of the glitziest online Carnaval around.
The Carnaval Slot itself is one of Microgaming's more venerable offerings and has been around for quite some time. It has enjoyed great popularity though with players, so much so that one rogue casino tried to create a duplicate copy of the game to tempt unwary players in, which Microgaming soon put a stop to.
The slot itself is one of the more simple games available from Microgaming today. It is the usual 5x3 reel slot which offers the player a choice of nine paylines to play. You can bet a maximum of one coin per payline, but each coin is 0.25, meaning that to bet the full amount is 2.25.
There are the usual low symbols on the reels of the playing cards and these offer payouts when you land three from left to right across a winning payline. However, with the high symbols (which are the trumpet, a banner, a clowns face, a Carnaval symbol and a lady wearing a colourful headdress) then you can trigger smaller wins when you land just two high symbols in a row on a payline.
Games that offer wins from just two successive symbols left to right are relatively rare and this simple feature alone means that there is a good chance of landing a win on the slot on a good proportion of your spins.
Indeed, Carnaval Slot's low variance gaming means that winning on the slot is not uncommon and this is especially attractive to players who may only have a smaller bankroll, but who want to play for a decent amount of spins before their cash reserves expire. The regular wins in Carnaval helps you keep that balance topped up.
There are two other additional symbols on the reels to take notice of. The first is the in game Wild symbol, which is easily denoted by the word Wild across the symbol. This substitutes across the reels for any other symbol (bar the in game scatter symbol) and can be used to create a winning payline.
Unfortunately, there's no multiplier bonus for any wins completed by a Wild, which is a shame as it would have given the slot an added dimension.
The in game scatter is the Scatter logo and scatter wins are added to any payline wins and in addition, scatters can appear anywhere on the reels to trigger a win, they don't necessarily have to be on a payline. All Scatter wins are multiplied by the number of credits staked.
The big 5,000 jackpot however can be won only by landing the Carnaval high symbol across all five reels in a single payline. Manage this and you will receive the massive 5,000 game jackpot, which is almost ten times more than the second biggest jackpot in the game of 600 coins.
There's no free spins or bonus features to mention in Carnaval as it is very much an old-school game, however it is a game that still holds a lot of interest for many different players and one which is still enjoyable to play to this very day.
