Join the lady with the biggest hat in history, as you dance your way to wins in IGT’s Samba de Frutas mobile slot.
It’s coco cabana time, as you close your eyes and head back to the fruity 1940’s.
There is something wonderfully nostalgic, though perhaps not particularly original, about the addition of the 100 paylines slot Samba de Frutas.
Why not original? It’s got stacked wilds in the shape of a fruity hat, god damn it!
True enough, but it’s also a pure copy of the Wolf Rising slot machine, simply with a different theme.
Which is actually no bad thing.
Ultimately, wolves and totems are not to everyones taste. Wolf Rising sent you into the wild, Apollo Rising (the other mobile 100 payline slot) sent you to outer space, and the Samba de Frutas game into a party of music and dance.
It’s not as graphically pretty as some, it has that old fashioned IGT slots look which they can’t escape after years of creating Vegas slot machines, but that’s part of the charm.
The A – 10 symbols are familiar, and they’ve made the high paying symbols stacked by 2, so they stand out in a mobile casino game that’s a total of 8 rows high with 5 reels.
Talking of which, you’ll only be able to play in portrait mode, which makes it slightly easier to play on Android phones and iPhone, but to be honest, we had as much fun playing this on our tablets.
IGT video slots are rarely complicated, though this mobile slot game is aimed at the slightly bigger better out there. The minimum starts at 1, all the way to 1,000 per spin, so you have plenty of options if you can afford it.
Be a little careful and budget carefully however, the slot Samba de Frutas isn’t as dangerous as Prowling Panther, but it can still take a good 50 spins before you hit the free spin bonus games, on average.
And whilst many will balk at the fact that it only gives you 5 free spins, these are usually more than worth the wait.
Not only do you get more stacked wilds, but it’s also easier to re-trigger the free spins. We’ve gotten about 1 or 2 re-triggers, every 2nd or 3rd time we enter the bonus games.
Ultimately, it’s the Super-tall Stacked Wilds that will have you shake your maracas. They keep you spinning, hoping to get two or three to completely cover the reels, and hitting the ultimate payoff over 100 paylines.

Super-tall Stacked Wilds: Climbing 8 rows high, the wild symbol is the lady with the massively tall fruit hat. Mostly she will happily cover all 8 rows, and she shows up often enough that you'll enjoy the thrill of the spin.
Scatters and Free Spins: The maracas with 'bonus' on them triggers the free spins. Get 3 on screen and you'll trigger 5 free spins.
Not only are these reels richer with stacked wilds, but also more bonus symbols - meaning you can more easily re-trigger a further 5 free spins.
We've had some great 100 times our bet here, though you could potentially hit much, much, higher if you lined up those wilds just right.
We suspect that the Sambas de Fruats mobile slot is a bit of a hate it or love it game.
You'll either love the big winning opportunity and stacked wilds, or get quickly bored when you don't hit the free spins often or quickly enough.
Personally, we had great fun in this carnival of big wins.
Though if you want something a little more traditional for IGT, then there's no better choice than the soft and gentle Golden Goddess slot.
