Rio Revels Power Mobile Fiesta Slot
Just as the name implies, the Fiesta slot available at mobile and online casinos is an uninhibited celebration of street festivals. The energetic samba soundtrack and the Brazilian flag on a drum symbol clue us in to the fact that it is set during Rio de Janeiro’s flamboyant Mardi Gras carnival. That is the extent of the theme or storyline. The five transparent reels spin unframed against a backdrop of multi-coloured confetti and bright orange and gold chevrons, and the symbols echo the celebratory festive tone.
The Fiesta slot has 15 paylines, and players can choose to activate any number from 1 to 15. Bets per line can be set at 0.01, 0.05, 0.10, 0.50 and 1.00, and the controls are housed in three easy-to-reach buttons that are positioned for effortless thumb manipulation on tablet and smartphone touchscreens. The title is also available at online casinos, and desktop or laptop players will find the controls just as easy to manipulate using a track pad or mouse.
Symbols Steeped in Festival Theme
In bold, gaudy colours and clearly detailed designs, the Fiesta slot’s game symbols all echo the carnival atmosphere. There are six symbols drawn from the Poker deck, the 9 to A, and these are illustrated in big bright fonts incised with geometric patterns, similar to the lettering on seaside resorts. They come in orange, blue, purple, yellow, green and red, and prizes start at 20X the line bet for three 9s or 10s in sequence on a payline. Five As are rewarded with the top payout in this group: 300X the line stake.
The four higher-value Fiesta slot symbols start with a set of maracas, worth 40X, 100X or 350X the line bet for three, four or five matches. In ascending order of value, the Brazilian drum wins 50X, 125X or 400X, the feather-bedecked Mardi Gras mask is worth 75X, 150X or 450X, and the Fiesta slot logo wins the top prizes: 100X, 250X or 500X the line stake.
Friendly Toucan Serves as the Wild
The only animal symbol used in the Fiesta slot is a cheerful toucan with as massive yellow-and-black bill: the Wild, able to substitute for other payline symbols to finish winning combos. It can appear on any of the reels except the first one. Like all the payline symbols, it can arrive stacked to cover two or even all three reel windows. When payline symbols stack on the leftmost reel, subsequent stacked Wilds can result in several payline wins simultaneously on the same spin, boosting total prizes.
Free Spins will Number 30 at Least
Because it is designed primarily for mobile casino play, the Fiesta slot keeps extra features that might slow down play to a minimum. The exception is the free spins bonus round, awarded when three or more of the tambourine Scatter symbols occur anywhere on the reels. Players receive an initial number of 30 free spins, at the same stakes and on the same reels as the base game.
All that changes on the screen is the colour of the backdrop, to deep welcoming blues and rich warm fuchsias. Another three Scatters during the bonus round will trigger another 30 spins, so these can mount up in succession and deliver some satisfying wins.
