Samba Nights Details Page
Samba Nights software offers the best of Cryptologic features that include speed control, sound options, Bet Max button, Avatars and Auto Play. There are no statistics offered and this is a drawback for those who like to evaluate their performance.
Easy to Understand (10)
The game is easy to follow and the rules and procedures are clearly explained in the Payout Table and the Rules. The Help section provides complete details but will not be required by experienced players.
Graphics & Sounds (9)
The graphics are good but they are not complemented by the music and the animations. The carnival is full of music and energy but there is a limited use of music and animations in the slot game. More symbols could have been animated and the music during the game could have been more vibrant. The expanding wild Samba Girl saves the day, because that one feature is outstanding.
Theme and Concept (9)
The carnival theme in a sense embodies the reason players love online slot games for the fun and the vibrancy. Hence the theme is appropriate. The features that have been incorporated are done well. The first impression that the reels create is one of revelry. However this does not sustain.
Game Features (8)
Samba Nights has both wild and scatter symbols, which have become mandatory. Both symbols have been used well in this slot game. The wild symbol also offers the highest fixed jackpot and the scatter symbol also triggers the free spins round. However the bonus game on the second screen is sorely missed, especially because the free spins round does not have any extra or innovative features.
Betting Options (10)
Samba Nights allows players to adjust the coin denomination and the number of lines but fixes one coin per payline. However it achieves the same flexibility because it has a much wider coin denomination range. The total bet range varies from 0.01 to 1000.00.
There is no progressive jackpot, which is a drawback. The highest fixed jackpot is of 2000 coins, which does not make up for the lack of a progressive jackpot. The other fixed jackpots are abysmally low, with the second highest fixed jackpot only paying 175 coins.
