Symbols of the Samba
All slot machines are made for gambling but not all slot machines are made for Samba! In line with its casino heritage, Samba de Janeiro has 5 card symbols: 10, Jack, Queen, King and Ace. Cards are a big part of casino culture and feature in many games! The most popular casino card games are Poker, Sic Bo and Baccarat! In addition to paying homage to the casino with card symbols, Samba de Janeiro also has some samba-style symbols that will get your blood pumping! These are picture symbols which all have their own animation. When they fall on the reels, they move like they’re part of a samba group! The two musical instruments give out the smallest payouts and these are the maracas and the cowbells. The drummer has payouts that are double the size of the instrument payouts! He’s all dressed up in costume, too, which makes this symbol a feast for the eyes! The symbol that awards the most generous payouts is the samba dancer and tambourine player. All dressed in gold, she is a true beauty! Every symbol in Samba de Janeiro awards payouts for matches of 3 or more. The paylines are one-way and payouts are only awarded for consecutive matches from the left to the right.
All the Samba Specials
The first of the special things about Samba de Janeiro is the Wild symbol. This is a troupe of sexy samba dancers, all in traditional costume, having the time of their lives! Like a traditional Wild symbol, this can complete a win for any other symbol (except the Scatter symbol) by substituting for the missing symbol. In this slot game, the Wild symbol doesn’t give wins on its own but only when it’s substituting in another symbol’s winning combination. The Scatter symbol, on the other hand, does give out wins like the other symbols (3, 4 and 5 matches). However, the Scatter symbol can pay from scattered positions so the combination doesn’t have to be consecutive nor fall from left to right nor on a payline! This makes it the most flexible symbol of them all, much like the couple dancing in the symbol! The Scatter symbols shows the silhouette of a couple dancing in front of some colourful fireworks. Not only does this symbol award payouts for three or more matches but it also awards 12 Free Games! During the Free Games, there will always be a Wild symbol on each of the middle 3 reels. Reels 2, 3 and 4 will start with a Wild symbol each, on a random position. Each Free Game, the reels will spin and the Wild symbols will slide down until they disappear, at which point a new Wild symbol will appear at the top of the reel! These Wild symbols make wins way more likely during the Free Games.
