The Brazilian carnival after which this game is named is always held 40 days before Easter. Over 2 million people take to the streets to celebrate it in Rio for its duration. And while it’s the most important festival in Brazil, you will find the biggest observances of it unfolding in Manaus, Olinda, Recife, and Sao Paulo. Its origins can be traced back to the 18th century when it was introduced by the very first Portuguese immigrants making their new homes in Brazil. And while its name may have changed since then, it used to be called the Entrudo, the happy spirit that defines it is still exactly the same! Carnaval Jackpot has high-quality slot machine graphics to set it apart from the many other reel games on the market. And there’s very little lost between the mobile version of this game and the desktop one. The icons players need to line are all inspired by the event the game is named after and full optimisation means that none of its effects get lost on the smaller screen of a smartphone or a tablet.
A rhythmic soundtrack heavy with drums fit into the theme perfectly and creates a Mardi Gras-esque atmosphere from the word go! Online slots reels edged in gold and set against a purple background feature symbols like the 10, Jack, Queen, King, and Ace playing card symbols and a range of other icons that tie into the overall theme. You will spot a banner, a masked harlequin, a samba dancer, a trumpet, and the logo for the game itself, which is also the most valuable symbol, when you play this slot machine. Landing 2, 3, 4, or 5 of these on a Carnaval Jackpot payline will potentially pay out 2.77X, 13.3X, 55X, or 555X the triggering bet. Then there’s the Wild, an icon emblazoned with the word, that is limited to landing on the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th reels of this online slots. These can stand in for any other symbol on the reels to create a winning combination except the Scatter, a symbol as easy to identify because it’s also an image of the word imposed over a blue background.
