Travel to the beaches of Rio on the slot from Williams Interactive (WMS) a subsidiary of Scientific Games. Brazilian Beauty will surprise you will multiplier wilds and a free spins round with collectable symbols that can lead to wins of up to 2,000 times your stake or 250,000 credits, whichever is hit first.
Brazilian Beauty is a video slot with five reels, three rows and 30 fixed pay lines. Wins are paid for three two five matching symbols on a line from left to right only. Playable on desktop or mobile devices, the bet sizes range from 0.30 to 150 credits per spin. The game has medium volatility and an RTP of 96.03%.
A blurred background with palm trees and strobe lights shows the inside of a Brazilian nightclub / open-air concert with the crowds dancing to the salsa tunes which we as players, unfortunately, cannot hear. Instead, we get only the well-known WMS reel and win count noises. The rest of the design is rudimentary at best, thanks to the landbased burden and baggage the game is carrying with it.
The pay symbols are trying hard to convey a Brazilian atmosphere, starting with maracas, flutes, flowers, drums and necklaces at the low end. Hit five on a line to win 3.33x your bet without multiplier wilds. It can grow to 10x and 30x your bet with one or two multiplier wilds landing as part of a combo.
At the high end, you will find headdresses, artistic depictions of a Rio beach, a Brazilian lady and the slot logo. A five of a kind will pay from 6.66x to 33.33x your stake with no multiplier wilds involved. One multiplier wild will increase it to 20x to 100x your bet and two will make that 60x to 300x your stake.
Multiplier wilds can appear on reels two and four only, each marked with x3 and substituting for all regular symbols, while an artistic sun icon acts as the scatter.
Always keep in mind that this slot hit the casino floors a couple of years ago and has just been given an HTML5 makeover that allows it to be played online on desktop and mobile devices. Hence, you will have lots of empty animations where the audio and visuals are trying to build up the suspense.
Nevertheless, the slot has some good features that can produce wins of up to 2,000 times your stake, no small change indeed. Landing three or four scatters will trigger Brazilian Beaty Bonus. The reels with scatters are held while the remainder is spinning one more time to potentially have more appear. As mentioned, lots of animation and noise whereas you will see very rarely another scatter land on the respin.
At the end of the noise, three, four or five scatters will get you 10, 15 and 20 free spins respectively, which can be retriggered. The man attraction during the feature is the collection of Beauty Scatters. the Brazilian lady is now wearing a headdress and has been transformed to a collectable symbol for the duration of the free spins.
Collect 2 to 20 Brazilian Beauty scatters before you run out of free spins to receive an extra coin win of 2x to 300x your stake. Any further Brazilian Beauty collected after the first 20 will get you an extra 10x your bet.
Well, I wonder if it is cost-cutting or pure laziness on the part of WMS but these rudimentary slot designs might work on huge cabinet screens where the more noise a slot is making the more people and attention it is attracting but they look utterly 20th century when they are played online on a computer screen and even worse on a smarthpone.
That being said, Brazilian Beauty has a few things going for it as the win multipliers can lead to some sizeable wins in the base game while the beauty has the potential to do it in the free spins when you manage to collect sufficient.
