Carnival and football are two very popular pastimes in Brazil, as spectators love watching their favourite players on the national and global stage in addition to spending almost a whole week partying hard. Internet betting software developer Playtech has capitalised on these popular phenomenon by developing the Football Carnival slot, which brings with it an upbeat mood and some fun features.
Based in Brazil, Football Carnival is a 5 reel, 50 payline video slot that manages to mix the party world of Carnival with the enthralling action of football. The game looks a bit different as it utilises many large stacked symbols, which can take up the entire reel if you get lucky. Reel symbols in the game include a blue shirted goalkeeper, a white shirted striker, a red player celebrating a goal, an orange player, a soccer pitch inside a huge stadium, Rio's Christ the Redeemer statue, a girl decked out in a Carnival outfit, a Brazilian girl waving her national flag, the Brazilian flag itself, a wild symbol, and a bonus symbol. The game's presentation is completed with an upbeat set of music that puts you into a partying mood. Slick animations on symbols when a win hits ties everything together.
Feature wise the game includes free spins, wild symbols, stacked symbols, win multipliers, and a maximum win of up to 3,000x your wagered amount. However the game has a low theoretical RTP of just 91.3% which, like many recent Playtech releases, is incredibly low for an online slot machine. To put things in perspective, most slots that we offer on our site feature payouts in the 94-96% range.
If you are a punter that hails from Brazil or somebody who wishes to visit the tropical country one day, or just a lover of the beautiful game, check out Football Carnival by Playtech for fun. But you had best keep your money in your wallet in real play mode. Just like the price of a black market ticket to the world cup final, it is hard to describe the payout rate of this game as anything other than a rip off.
