Football Carnival


Football Carnival was launched quite recently by Playtech, celebrating the 2014 Football World Cup and using a lot of imagery from Brazil’s stadiums in the process. This is a 5 reel game that has an impressive 50 lines. An abstract view of Rio de Janeiro is going to entice you from behind the reels, though you don’t get o see as much of it as I would’ve hoped. It’s a beautiful city, but the focus on the reels remains on the stadiums and on the players and fans that made this World Cup special. Along the way, you will find that the slot offers scatters, free games, multipliers and wilds.


Graphics & Theme

The love that the Brazilians have for football is known throughout the world, so it was a great honor for them to be the hosts for the 2014 World Cup. You will find that the slot’s football focus switches from the football to the Brazilian aspect from time to time, a good thing since both are deserving of the attention of a football fan. The symbols that appear in the game come in two sizes. Some of them are typical symbols that occupy one spot on the reel, while others are stacked and can give you entire reels filled with them. The football, the game logo, the flag of Brazil, a cute female fan of Brazil’s team, a Samba dancer, the Jesus Christ statue from Rio, a stadium and four players are the ones that form the line-up of symbols here.

Special Effects

The stacked symbols that show up here are an important feature of this slot. The ones that show up in stacked mode make up the majority of the symbols, including the four players, the stadium and the statue. The two ladies, the flag and the special symbols occupy only one position.


The wild symbol is the football with the word Wild written on it. The wild’s role is to substitute for other symbols, as long as it stopped on the reels in a position where it can do something about it. Getting multiple wild symbols on a payline will result in payouts that include the top jackpot, depending on how many of them there are. The prizes start at 10x the line bet for 2 wilds and go up to 3000x for 5 wilds.

The scatter symbol is another element that needs to be considered and taken advantage of. It has the ability to appear in various positions on the screen and it will award its prizes and its free spins even if the symbols are not on the same line.

The game awards a round with 10 free games, for which the player needs to get a minimum of three scatter symbols. There are two bonus features offered in these free games. The first one is the use of an extra wild symbol for their duration, while the second one is an increasing multiplier.


A game with a great design, which honors the Brazilian commitment to football and the 2014 World Cup, Football Carnival should be on the must play list for any fan of this sport.
