Samba Jackpots Slots

Samba time! RealTime Gaming - RTG - makes players move their feet to the beat with their musical and dance themed Samba Jackpots slot. You don't really see this theme a lot because it's a hard one to really make right. But RTG does exactly that with Samba Jackpots. First, the background is gorgeous. A tropical island at sunset, the deep orange sky, the water. It's all stunning to look at. The symbols are bright and colorful which matches the overall theme perfectly. But if there's one thing from a design standpoint we were a little disappointed on it's the music. There is none! You'd think a slot with Samba in the title would have some music but that's not the case. We think that's a missed opportunity for an even more authentic version of this slot but it's a small detail. So, can players dance their way to huge wins with Samba Jackpots? Let's find out!

Bets and Paylines

Samba Jackpots is a 5 reel slot with 40 paylines. The bet sizes range from $0.80 to $10, so high rollers will probably want to skip this one.

Play Symbols

Samba Jackpots has a nice - but small - collection of premiums and non-premium symbols…

The GREEN DANCER is top symbol. 5 of her and you'll feel the beat and be dancing to big wins!

The PURPLE DANCER is next.

Followed by the SHAKERS.

And the final premium is the DRUM.

The non-premium symbols are the HEART, SPADE, CLUB and DIAMOND symbols.

The MASK is the WILD symbol. It substitutes for all symbols EXCEPT the scatter and gold coins.

SAMBA JACKPOTS is the SCATTER symbol. 3 or more of these trigger the free game feature.

The GOLD COINS are a special symbol. 3 or more of this trigger a one time payout with multipliers.

Special and Bonus Features

Samba Jackpots has a nice collection of features that players will want to know about…

  • Free Spins

This feature is triggered when a player spins into 3 or more SAMBA JACKPOTS scatter symbols. During this feature, the WILD and GOLD COINS are awarded more often.

  • Wild Reels Feature

This unique feature triggers in the base game and free spins. Any time a GREEN DANCER fills a reel, the entire reel changes to WILDS. The Wilds hold in place and the player is then given one re-spin.

  • Quick Hit Jackpot

This feature is something you're starting to see more and more with slots. It triggers whenever a player spins into 3 or more GOLD COINS. When they do, they are awarded a one time payout with multipliers. 3 Gold Coins awards a 1x multiplier, while 12 Gold Coins awards a 1,250x multiplier!

To Play Or Not To Play?

That is the question. And the answer is… a so-so yes. Samba Jackpots has some nice features - the Wild Reels and Quick Hit Jackpots are nice - but we can't help but feeling like there's something missing here. The low bet sizes don't really give players a chance to win big but if you're playing with a smaller bankroll then that's to your benefit. It won't hurt to give Samba Jackpots a few spins next session, but if you give it all your time you'll probably be missing out on some better options.
