The Rio Carnival may be the world’s biggest street party and it should be on the bucket list of anyone with a sense of adventure – it’s also the theme of this online slot from Red Tiger Gaming called Rio Stars which offers players free spins, plenty of base game features and two progressive jackpot prizes.
Rio Stars is a five reel slot with four rows and thirty fixed paylines; those reels spin within one of the most extravagant frames we’ve seen which could be the headwear of some scantily clad dancer. The jackpot totals are displayed on the left hand side.
The high value symbols include a colourful parrot, a pair of maracas, a tropical cocktail and a bowl of fruit; 10, J, Q, K and A make up the lower values.
The dancing girl is wild and she will substitute for all standard symbols to help create winning matches; the Rio Spins logo is wild.
The Carnival Drums can appear on any spin and they will award one of the following features:
- Rio Multiplier – the next win you land will come with a multiplier of up to 20x.
- Mega Wild – a large, 3×3 wild will appear on the reels.
- Rio Dancers – extra wild symbols are added to the reels.
- Carnival Reels – all low value symbols are removed from the reels.
Landing three of the Rio Spins bonus symbols anywhere on reels one, three and five will award a random number or free spins, sometimes aided by the appearance of the Carnival Drums to add a few more.
During this round the Carnival Drums will appear on every spin to award one of the above feature or possible a few more spins.
This is triggered from the base game by landing three of the jackpot symbols which will award either the Mega Pot shown to the left of the reels. There’s also a Daily Jackpot which must pay out before the time shown.
Rio Stars is probably our favourite slot themed on the famous carnival and the good news is that the Carnival Drums kick in regularly to increase the chance of some big wins; hit the free spins for the biggest wins though.
