Whats not so hot?
Put on your party hat and dancing shoes it’s time to Samba! Realtime Gaming just released (July 2016) a new progressive slots titled Samba Sunset. It is a Brazilian Carnival-themed slots with 3D animations and a bevy of carnival dancers swaying their hips across the reels. The game flushed with some crazy Latin rhythms, exotic dancers and blistering free spins. This slot is a 243 all ways pays payline with 5 reels.
The slots is released just in time for the Rio 2016 Olympics. Rio de Janeiro is known for its natural settings and one of the most visited cities in the Southern Hemisphere. It’s famous for its carnivals, samba, bossa nova and the Copacabana. The Samba dance is a Brazilian musical genre that originated from Africa. One can say it’s the musical expression of urban Rio.
The samba features various stanzas of declaratory verses. Influenced by American orchestras after the Second World War, Samba dancers now use trombones, trumpets, flutes and clarinets. You’ll note that some of these musical instruments grace the reels too.
Samba Sunset slots offers an average return to player (RTP) payout percentage of 96.5% to the player and a total jackpot payout of 4,500 coins. Symbols that appear on the reels are the Samba dancers, cards from 9 to Ace, wilds, scatters (Bay) with multipliers, free spins and the Samba Sunset wild logo.
The coin range is 0.01 up to 1.00. Before you start partying the night away with the hot looking Samba girls choose the right coin denonmination.
It’s refreshing to see that Samba Sunset comes with a wild substitution, scatters and free spins. Amidst the gyrating dancers it even allows you to walk away with pockets full of cash.
Wilds: The wild symbol is the Samba Sunset logo. When it appears on reels 2 and 4 during the base game it replaces all the other symbols adjacent to it except the scatter. I like the wilds because they pop up quite often and offer decent payouts.
Free Spins: The scatter icon is the Bay. Like any quality slots when 3 scatters appear from left to right the free spins mode is triggered-awarding 10 free spins. But, the developers upped the party tempo a bit. When the Samba Sunset logo (wild) appears during the free spins each free spin win is doubled. The free spins can be re-triggered awarding you 5 Super Games once you’ve played your initial 10 free spins.
Super Games Feature
Before each free game additional dancers are added to the reels. Yes I know it’s enough to make any bloke’s head spin. When the wild appear in a winning combination during the free spins all payouts are practically tripled. Unfortunately extra free spins can’t be won.
Samba Sunset is one of those games that gets down to business straightaway. The slots features a sound track that gets your hips to rotate manically to the music and further backed by superb 3D graphics. With a bunch of free spins that can be won, wild substitutions and sizzling hot dancers I think this one is going to be a classic.
