The Conga, which is also known as the Tumbadora, is a single-headed, tall, and narrow drum with Cuban origins. Congas have a slender barrel shape which definitely makes them very distinctive. They are the traditional instruments of the Afro-Cuban genres like Rumba and Conga, although they now are omnipresent in some other forms of Latin music too, including Latin Rock, Songo, Salsa, Descarga, Merengue, and Afro-Cuban jazz. Microgaming’s Conga Party takes place deep into the jungle, in an undisclosed location reachable by plane only, where lots of Conga shamans are waiting for your arrival. However, you can easily trick them and loot some shiny goodies from the infamous island shindig, by playing every spin carefully. The dancing-tribal theme is engulfed by colorful dense foliage to go along nicely with the marvelous Conga drum beats and the slick graphics of a dark unsettling jungle background landscape. Conga Party consists of 5 dark-shaded reels and 30 fixed pay-lines that are set against the gloomy undergrowth backdrop. While the standard sequence of playing cards (only shortened), J, Q, K, and A represent the symbols of lower values, while the treasure chest, a Toucan, and the golden mask with a smiley face on it are the symbols with higher values in this game. The tribal dancers cavorting above the reels are the Wilds symbols with the power of substituting all symbols except for the game’s Logo which is a diverse multiplier, as well as the purple mask and the snakes which are the Scatter symbol that activates the Free Spins feature. A soulful dance derives from both the soul and the combination of sweet beats and smooth moves. Feel yourself a professional dancer on the glowing dance floor, surrounded by torches and noisy audience. If you feel too lazy to perform, you can opt for the ‘auto-play’ option which is fully customizable from bet amounts to spin numbers, and watch the party thrive from the bars up, without a single distraction.
It’s Conga Time!
The Dancing Shaman only reveals from behind the curtain of the 4th
reel. When this happens, the entire spinning reel will turn into a Wild frenzy, which in turn will have the dancing shaman start to blow tiny darts to a location of his disclosure, making both the location and its neighbor symbols to turn completely Wild and replace all the symbols on their respective reel to combine winning hands, which could potentially turn the tables in your favor and lead to a significant bolster of your bankroll account.
Party Under Masks
If you manage to land 2 purple tribal masks on the 1st
reel, the Mask Bonus feature will be triggered. In its core, this feature is all about the classic picking method, which in this case requires you to pick 5 out of the 20 masks displayed. Winning combinations in this feature can be multiplied up to 200 times your original bet amount. The more he plays the drums, the more rewards he will bring to you. In addition, landing 5 Conga Party symbols anywhere on the pay-table will result in a crazy Jackpot reward of this slot, worth an astonishing 10.000 coins!
Free Spins Boogie
Landing 3 serpents that wrap themselves around the letters on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th reel activates the Free Spins feature. You’ll be taken to a completely different ‘Selection’ screen with 5 crazy looking dancers, each offering different amount of free spins (usually 5-10) and multipliers. This is where you can really move your feet under the conga rhythms to prizes, as the conga dancers randomly jump from down reel to reel awarding bonus prizes, multipliers (2x / 3x), and expand to fill up their respective reels for additional winning combinations. Each dancer will perform his best dancing moves over the reels, to pamper you with extra features according to the reel they dance onto. Substantially, dancing on the 1st, 2nd, and 4th reel will have the respective reel expand entirely to form Wilds and more winning combinations. While dancing on the 3rd center reel supplies multipliers (2x or 3x), the 5th and last reel provide a handsome bonus. Moreover, your favorite Free Spins feature can be re-triggered by following the same steps above.
Rumba Jungle Dancers
This feature is triggered arbitrarily and can be triggered by any spin. You will then be taken to a different screen with a step ladder on the right-hand side alongside the golden nickels. The aim is to flip the golden nickels without hitting the red x-marks an advance on the ladder as you win heftier prizes with each level. Should you succeed to climb past level 4, you will unlock the Mini, Minor, and Major prizes that have the potential to multiply your winning combination by up to 750 times your original bet amount. When you achieve the peak of a certain level, a new level will start from 0 and the nickels will also be reverted to match the respective progression. However, when you uncover 2 red x-marks, the feature will be terminated and the primary game will be resumed.
Heads or Tails
Choose heads or tails 5 times in this bonus feature, and more prizes will be presented to you. Bear in mind that 5 successful selections are needed to reveal a bonus reel which can be spun for even greater prizes, up to a staggering 1000 times your original bet!
