Launched especially for the Football World Cup 2014, this Football Carnival slot brings together the fever pitch with a samba kick.
You know what you are going to get when you open one of the many great Playtech mobile slots. The sounds are going to be original and fun, the graphics are going to be sharp and bright and it will play as well on an Android device or iOS.
So the review here is all about the football theme and gameplay.
Will you remember this mobile slot past 2014? Probably not. Set in a carnival theme during the Brazilian FIFA Football World Cup, it’s incredibly topical. That’s not to say it doesn’t give a nice twist to your usual football themed slot.
After all, there is only so many green pitches and overpaid sportsmen you can fit in to a video slot before they all start to look alike. Football Carnival slot on mobile at least attempts to bring a joyous atmosphere to a great sporting year.
Add stacked symbols which cover at least two places on the reels (very much like Iron Man 2 slot) and you have a visually different game that stands out as soon as you open it.
The big prizes here are hard to catch, with the base game giving you little returns at best, but just enough to top you up. Learn how to budget for a good 200 spins in order to try and catch the free spin bonus. And even then, this slots bonus feature is not just elusive but there is no guarantee you’ll walk away with extra on top.
Despite this, we’ve had the occasional good luck during the free spins giving us as much as 100x out bet. More often than not, we had to be satisfied for 10x our bet.
So yes, it could have done with some harder hits more frequently, but it’s still saved by a great theme and the hopes of scoring the winning goal. A simple slot machine for fans of the World Cup 2014.
If you like football themed games you might also like to try the Football Star slot from Microgaming.

Wilds: The bright yellow and green football is the wild symbol substituting for all other symbols except scatter.
Scatters and Free Spins: The normal coloured football surrounded by carnival features is your scatter symbol and you'll need three or more to trigger 10 free spins.
Here you get a sticky wild in the middle of reel three for the whole duration of the free spins. You'll also start with a 2x multiplier, increasing by +1 every two spins. That means that your last two spins are played at 6x multiplier, which if you get really lucky, can bring you decent returns.
Football Carnival mobile slot plays well and would have been better if you could find a few bigger wins on these five reels. Microgaming's Football Star slot fares better in that respect.
Not one we will play much beyond 2014, but it sure does help bring the anticipation of the big game to the small screen.
