Developed by Betsoft—and launched on February 22, 2019—Carnaval Forever is a celebratory html5 video slot adaptation of the yearly Rio Carnival that is held in Brazil’s Rio de Janeiro city. A week-long Brazilian festival involving parading and partying and open-air concerts, the Rio Carnival is organized few days to Ash Wednesday—between February and early March.
Betsoft-owned Sin City Nights (January 2017) is similar. Carnaval Forever’s rival games include Rio Carnival (October 2018) from Novomatic, Samba Brazil (January 2013) from Playtech, and Festival Queen (October 2014) from 2by2 Gaming.
Eleven symbols (carnival stage, King Momo, purple carnival princess, red carnival princess, turquoise carnival princess, blue carnival princess, A, K, Q, J, and 10) require three, four, or five winning combinations.
