Samba de Janeiro is a 5 reel, 20 payline slot from Novomatic that can be played on all devices from 40p to £50 per spin. With a Free Games feature which offers you 12 free spins with shifting wilds, can you cheerfully dance yourself to big wins?

Samba de Janeiro takes you to Rio (de Janeiro) in Brazil for the infamous samba festival – the plain back reels feature A, K, Q, J and 10 playing cards as well as hand chimes, maracas, male samba drummers and carnival queens. The latter is the highest value symbol giving you 5, 25 or 100 times your stake for 3, 4 or 5 across a payline. The group of Samba dancing girls is the wild symbol and replaces all other symbols bar the scatter.

That scatter shows a dancing couple silhouette with fireworks in the backdrop – if you get 3, 4 or 5 of these anywhere on the reels, you will win 2, 10 or 50 times your stake as well as triggering the Free Games feature. You are then rewarded with 12 free spins. You can also trigger the feature randomly from any base game spin.

Once in the feature, a wild symbol is placed, at random, on either of the 3 middle reels (2, 3 or 4) in each of the top, middle and bottom rows - that means you will have 3 wilds across the 3 middle reels (on random rows). With each free spin, all 3 wild symbols slide down with a new wild entering in the top row when it slides off – this means you will have 3 wilds on the 3 middle reels on each free spin.

Simple in terms of gameplay, Samba de Janeiro is all about the Free Games feature where you will play each free spin with a wild on each of the 3 middle reels – the only negative is that you cannot win more free spins. If you get a wild on both reels 1 and 5, you could be in line for some big wins.

Medium to high variance, Samba de Janeiro is a decent Novomatic title – I recommend you try WMS’ Dancing in Rio and Play ‘N Go’s Samba Carnival which have a similar theme.
