We haven’t seen many Brazillian-themed slots, but we’re prepared to say that Samba de Frutas must be one of the best designed slots of its kind.
Not that we would expect anything less from IGT – a game developing giant with far more hits than misses – but we are happy to say that Samba de Frutas has exceeded our already high expectations, particularly in terms of slot design.
While the game does have some setbacks, which will be discussed later on in this review, its highly entertaining theme coupled with its simple gameplay and versatile betting options makes the game fun and addictive. This colourful video slot is jam-packed with laughter, animals, and sensational Latin American dancing displayed over 5 giant reels. With 100 paylines stretching over 8 rows, you’ll find it difficult to keep your feet from tapping along to the beat where the maximum payout is 1,000x your bet.
We are aware that Brazilian-themed slots are somewhat of an anomaly in the online casino world, but we’re not sure why. The visuals and entertainment value of such an interesting theme makes for an immensely fun and exciting game, and Samba de Frutas is evidence for this.
This video slot is infinitely bright and colourful, fitted with a poster of a fruit-decorated lady on the right side of the reels while the backdrop behind the reels received a splash of blue incorporated with silhouettes of pineapples behind each symbol.
The reels are also unique in the extended symbols they included in the game. The betting platform is located under the poster where you can set the number of lines and line bet with green arrows within the betting options. The settings button, spin button and auto spin feature button is located further down from the betting platform and were enlarged to make it easy to navigate while you make your next spin. Overall, the game is simple to comprehend and controls are intuitive to any player.
Samba de Frutas is fun and simple to play – and some might say too simple.
The reality is that while the game is enjoyable overall, it is seriously lacking in bonus features compared to other games of its caliber.
However, one feature that we’re excited about is the Free Spins feature which is activated by displaying a pair of maracas anywhere on reels two, three and four. Once triggered, you will be awarded 2x your total bet and five free spins. Bear in mind, however, there is not any extra multiplier wins during the free spin feature but does incorporate wild win combinations with colour-changing reels. You can re-trigger the free spin feature for a further five free spins up to a maximum of 255 spins.
Samba de Frutas makes use of the auto play feature where you are more than welcome to pre-select the number of spins you would like the slot machine to spin on your behalf and will only stop once a bonus feature is triggered or when your desired spin amount has been reached. You can also disable the sound effects incorporated into the game to play your own music in the background while you spin away to make your riches. More settings can also be found under the setting button located next to the spin button for more choices and options surrounding the gameplay of this slot game.
Explore Samba de Frutas Symbols
The Wild symbol is portrayed by a gorgeous lady wearing a gigantic hat comprised of colourful birds, mouth-watering fruit, beautiful flowers and tropical birds stretching upwards to potentially cover an entire reel. The wild also substitutes for all symbols except that of the Bonus icon, which is represented by the pair of maracas.
Payouts and Wagering Limits
As you enjoy the Latin American carnival and explore the retro design infused with dancing, birds and musical instruments you will also have an array of betting choices starting at a relatively low $0.10 and climbing as high as $100.00 per spin, making this excellent slot playable at any budget.
With the giant reels probably being the most noticeable aspect of the game, you will also have 100 pay lines at your fingertips to unlock all the cash prizes presented in this video slot will frequently appear with the payout ratio set to 96%.
The high-value symbols include a dancing lady with maracas that will award you with 500 coins when five of a kind if displayed on the reels, a man dancing with maracas will reward you with 500 coins when you manage to display five on an active payline, a pair of toucans and a pair of parrots will each increase your balance with 250 coins when you manage to trigger five of a kind on the reels respectively.
The four main symbols are also slightly stacked and cover two or three reel positions at a time. The lower end symbols are also slightly stacked and cover two or three positions at a time; these include the usual playing card values including 9,10, Jack, Queen, King, and Ace. Other bonus options include wilds and free spins.
Samba de Frutas
Samba de Frutas has a retro design feel to the game with the unique giant reels and Latin American dancing infused with animals and tropical fruit, all working together to create an amazing slot which is very pleasing to the eye.
The added bonus feature along with the extra paylines make it a must to anyone who enjoys something different, distinctive, and incredibly colourful.
Despite the lack of bonus features and gamble feature, Samba de Frutas is a must-try for fans of this theme, and really anyone looking for a high-quality slot which promises plenty of rewards.
