Flying down to Rio for carnavale does not need a plane if you have this slot in your pocket. Enjoy buying your way into the free spin feature or play the base game for lower stakes thrills.
Carnavale in Rio De Janeiro is one of the biggest events of the year in the whole continent of South America, the streets are filled with locals and tourists dressed up in the most flamboyant costumes as floats drive through the streets and people embrace, kiss and enjoy a caipirinha under the city's lights.
This then is the setting for Carnaval Forever, Betsoft’s Latin themed celebration of Rio’s carnavale.
As befits so outlandish an event, the slot machine is a riot of colour with the symbols being either sparkly Ace to Jack symbols or else sparkly humans in classic carnivale style costumes. The backgrounds are similarly bright and anarchic.
Accompanying this is a Latin rhythm on the soundtrack and plenty of noise for the spinning reels and win chimes. It is a fun bright design that thoroughly evokes its theme.
For all its elaborate design, the gameplay for Carnaval Forever is somewhat lacklustre. It is a basic ten winline, five by three slot with a very simple bonus game.
It does have a double or nothing gamble feature, allowing you to risk half your winnings or all of them. And like several of Betsoft’s output, Carnaval Forever allows you to purchase the free spins feature (see below for full details on the feature) for a standard buy in of one hundred times your bet per spin.
However, Betsoft’s version of this increasingly popular feature also adds the twist that every now and again in the base game a coin will fall on the reels. These coins reduce the price of the free spins bonus. If you collect enough coins the free spins will start automatically for free.
If you don’t want to buy your way into the free spins bonus in Carnaval Forever you can do so by hitting the Queen of the Carnaval symbols which will grant five, seven or nine free spins depending on whether you hit three, four or five of these symbols anywhere on the reels.
Hitting the Queen of Carnaval during the free spins will award an additional 2 free spins per symbol every time a symbol lands.
This is the only special symbol as Carnaval Forever does not even have a Wild symbol.
The return to player of this game is a perfectly adequate 96.22%.
The range of bet on the site we tested was €/$/£0.10 per spin up to €/$/£100.00 per spin.
The volatility of this game is medium, but can be ramped up by using the gamble feature.
Carnaval Forever is a nicely built slot with great design choices. If you don’t mind the limited features it might be a good slot for you.
To match it with our strategies we would recommend you using the double or nothing feature.
