How to Play
Carnaval Forever is a visually impressive NZ online pokie, one of Betsofts‘ finest with a relatively small layout integrating 5 reels with 10 active lines which might not be one of the most stimulating setup you could find. The game pays as much as 1,000x your wager on those few lines. The game is rich when it comes to symbols; which are bright and colourful starting with the Carnaval Queen which is the scatter and expands during free spins, the Samba king and the different coloured dancers and low-value cards from 10 to Ace. The 10 pays 3-50 x the line bets for three or five similar symbols, while the Jack and Queen reward you with 3x to 75x the bet. The Ace and King both reward 5x to 150 times the stake. The wild is the game’s premium symbol as landing five of a kind on the reels at a max bet pays 50x your stake.

The reels are set on the streets of Rio and once you start playing this pokie game, you will dance to the rhythm of the catchy soundtrack in the background. You will have plenty of Dancers on the reels to correct your moves.
The wild symbols are represented by a silhouette of a dancer on a stage surrounded by colourful feathers. This symbol helps in the creation of winning combos as a substitute and also pays its own prize of up to 100x the bet.
The Carnaval Queen is the scatter and will activate the free spins feature. 3, 4 or 5 scatters will give you five, seven or nine free spins respectively. This feature can be retriggered, with each Queen that appears after that being offered with two extra rounds.
The Free spins have surefire wins to offer. With the free spins, you get five to nine free spins with winning combos in each one and extra free spins that can be retriggered. The scatters forming free spins appear often making the free spins quite an exciting feature.
Graphics and Sound
Carnaval Forever takes hold of all that festive atmosphere in its audio-visual presentation. The pokie is well presented with attractive people and decorative floats making up the symbols, background draped with brightly coloured feathers combined with a soundtrack that beats to the rhythm of the procession.
This is a well-designed game, with a Brazilian carnival theme. The reels are well presented with beautiful dancers in skimpy attires with vibrant feathers and large hairbands, the typical appearance for the event’s attendees. There are five carnival dancers, the carnival king and the queen. The royals have been chosen for the lowest coin values.
The wagers of a game with 10 pay-lines will naturally begin from a minimum value of $0.10 allowing each line to receive $0.01 bet. The wager can be increased to as much as $10 in this game which means each line gets $1.
The game also offers you with the buy feature. However, in this case, you will be required to spend 100x the amount needed during the base game so you will spend up to $1,000. The amount required for the Buy Feature can be reduced through the Bu Coin symbols found on the second and fourth reels. If you reduce the cost to zero, you receive one free spin with guaranteed wins.
Carnaval Forever delivers its largest wins when the wilds form combinations on the active lines and will deliver as much as 100x your stake on each line or 1,000x the wager for all lines. The highest possible payout you can get in this game is 10, 848 coins per single spin.
The special feature in this game is the Free Spins Feature. The feature is activated once a player gets three or more Carnaval Queens on the reels at the same time, which awards you with 5, 7 or 9 free spins depending on the number of scatters. You must note that each spin in the Free Spins Feature is a winning one. If you do not want to wait for the feature to get activated, you can use the Buy Feature option to activate free spins at a certain price.
