World Cup Football Themed Carnival Cup Slot
This is a mobile slot game from Nektan software and is set around the 2014 football world cup that was held in Brazil. As we now know the winners of this tournament were Germany, but at the time of this Carnival Cup slot release the games were only about to commence. The graphics of this mobile slot are light and fun, without to many complicated details on and around the reels, making the gameplay the focus on a game screen designed for the smaller sized mobile setting.
Because of the rather simple design for the mobile platform, players will quite quickly realise that there are 5 reels and 9 pay lines involved. There are also 3 rows of themed symbols on these reels and the bare essentials in terms of settings buttons and features along the sides, to designate as much of the available space to the reels. That being soared there is still a degree of betting choice available, in the usual slot fashion. The list of bonus features in this Nektan mobile slot is rather short, including just a free spin feature and a Wild symbol. Overall though this makes for an enjoyable mobile gaming experience.
The Football Mobile Theme Examined
The difficulty with creating a slot game theme for the mobile platform is that the space available for use is rather limited and themes of this nature tend to want to expand in rather audacious bouts of colour and sound. This results in a rather basic thematic build up, with the aspects involved siding with clarity and interpretation over detail and animation. The graphics of Carnival Cup slot are still appealing though and with a stadium packed to the rafters as a backdrop as well as a Brazilian football themed soundtrack to the reels, the experience upon these reels is quite a fun one.
On the side of reels and there symbols this slot features a good couple of themed icons that include both the Brazilian and football sides of the theme, in combination and as individual parts of a whole. Again these symbols may not be the most detailed or highly animated of those that have graced the reels of slots before or after, but still offer good visuals for the spins. These symbols also include some of the more recognizable playing card symbols, with the thematic presence of football jerseys behind each to add to the experience set up.
The Few Bonus Features of this Slot
The one possible downside of playing slot games designed for the mobile platform is that there are often not all too many bonus features attached to the experience. This is because the usual types of bonus games and features of slots would likely overcrowd the game screen, as well as struggle to deliver the same impact it might on a larger screen. That being said Nektan have included both Wilds and free spins into Carnival Cup slot, so there is something.
The Wild of this mobile online pokies NZ is the trophy symbol and can substitute for other reel symbols to help form more combinations. This symbol is joined by the Scatter symbol which awards free spins if 3 or more land. These spins are able to be retriggered and so can make for rather lucrative spinning.
