About Carnaval Forever Slot
Are you ready to party in the most eccentric and colorful fashion possible? If so, then the Carnaval Forever slot should be right up your alley!
The slot was brought to life by the champions of 3D, Betsoft and is played on your typical 5×3 reels, although it only has 10 fixed paylines. The RTP ranges between 96.22% and 96.63% and the high volatility ensures high wins but demands some patience until they actually drop.
We got our feathery head pieces out and shook our hips to some samba rhythms, so now we can tell you all you need to know about this slot, from features to winning possibilities. So, read our review below and learn more!
Carnaval Forever Theme and Background
The slot’s theme is very clearly based on the world-famous Brazilian carnival. That would also be the reason why the game is called Carnaval Forever, because carnaval is actually the Portuguese word for carnival.
The Brazilian Carnival is held between the Friday before Ash Wednesday and goes on until said Ash Wednesday. I think we’ve all seen parts of the big parades of beautiful women in huge parades swinging their hips to Samba rhythms. It’s a huge festival and a magnet for tourists and locals alike.
Nowadays, carnival is the most famous holiday in Brazil and the one in Rio de Janeiro draws in almost 5 million people every year, with around half a million of them being foreigners.
The Carnaval Forever slot portraits the pomp and the excitement and the colors beautifully and you’ll feel wholly immersed in the big party with the Samba music playing along.
Carnaval Forever Gameplay
As initially mentioned, you play the new Betsoft slot on the typical 5×3 reels with 10 paylines. The background and the reels themselves just scream carnival and fiesta and you won’t know what hit you!
The symbols are divided into two categories, as so often happens. The symbols with a lower value are represented by the card values 10 to A. But even those are decorated with a lot of glitz and glam to fit the style of the big party.
The symbols with the higher value are represented by four beautifully costumed Samba dancers that would fit perfectly into every big Brazilian carnival parade. The highest paying normal symbol however is the ceremonial master with the golden key to the city.
Apart from the normal symbols, there are some special symbols that are the key to the bonus features in the game. If you’d like to learn more about those, just read on below.
The wild symbol is represented by a colorful stage with a shadowy dancer. Not only is it the highest paying symbol in the game, but it also substitutes for all normal symbols in the game improving your winning chances drastically.
Carnaval Forever Free Spins
If you manage to land three Scatters in form of the Carnaval Queen on your reels, the party really gets started. Depending on how many Scatters you land, you get a different number of free spins:
- 3 Scatters get you 5 free spins
- 4 Scatters grant you 7 free spins and
- 5 Scatters guarantee you 9 free spins
Additionally, every spin during free spins is a guaranteed winning spin and if you manage to land another Scatter during the free spins, you’ll be rewarded with an additional 2 free spins.
If you’re not of a patient disposition, you have the possibility to buy your way straight into the free spin round with 10 free spins. This will, however cost you 100x times your bet making this a very expensive gamble.
Even with the winning guarantee during free spins, you’ll have to get exceptionally lucky to make a free spin round costing you 100x your bet worth your while. But who knows, it might pay off.
Anytime during play, you might land a golden bonus coin. This coin will reduce the cost for your bonus buy-in and you can collect them as long as you’d like. Should the cost be reduced to zero, the free spins will start automatically.
Every time you get a win in the base game, you have the opportunity to gamble half or all of your win in a simple heads or tails game. Winning will double whatever you gambled, but betting on the wrong outcome will make you lose half or all of your win.
Carnaval Forever Payouts and Wagering Limits
Carnaval Forever doesn’t have a wide range of betting options. You can start spinning the reels with as little as $0.10, but the bets are capped at just $10. That also explains the rather lacklustre maximum win of $10,848.
That is still almost 1,100x your initial bet though, so that fact softens the blow a little bit. Another thing that might throw off some of the more casual players, could be the high volatility. Since this demands a high starting bankroll if you really want to make the most of the game.
The RTP ranges from 96.22% in the base game up to a solid 96.63% when you use the buy-in feature, which makes a lot of sense as all the spins during free spins give you a guaranteed win.
We still recommend the slot to all kinds of players, since the features are exciting and easy to understand and the atmosphere is just riveting and immersive.
