Dancing in Rio is a 5 reel video slot with 40 paylines, dozens of Free Spins, multipliers and even 7 Jackpots to suit everyone’s appetites.
Join the celebration in this new spinning adventure that will definitely get you in the festive mood with exotic dancers in extravagant costumes and samba beats that carry you all the way to the Progressive Award of up to $55,000.
WMS Gaming are veterans in the industry, as they have been developing slot games and slot machines for over 20 years now. They are known for introducing many innovations in the industry and their target market is mostly based in the US. They have been acquired by Scientific Games in 2013.
How to Play It
Dancing in Rio features 5 reels and 4 rows with plenty of opportunities to win, either through the base game and 40 paylines, or through Free Spins Bonus rounds and Progressive Jackpots.
The symbols in the base game include, naturally, beautiful dancers, with the leading lady, the Dancing Queen that occasionally appears stacked across the entire reel. She is also the highest paying one of all the dancers while you will also see playing cards as low–paying symbols.
The Logo of the game appears as a Wild and it can substitute any symbol except Scatters and the Jackpot. Wilds are featured on all reels except the first one.
The most interesting symbol in the game is definitely the carnival Mask. It is a Scatter that triggers the Free Spins Bonus but the interesting thing is that it appears with numbers +2, +5, +10 and +20 on the mask, which stand for the number of additional free spins added to the bonus round.
WMS have certainly gone out of their way to load this bright and sparkly slot with special features to keep you on a winning streak.
First of all, the Free Spins Bonus gets a whole new dimension in this slot. Elegant feather masks function as Scatters and they are the ones that activate up to 50 Free Spins and 5x multipliers depending on the number of Scatters on your grid. But that is not all.
Masks come in several variations: Mask (+2), Mask (+5), Mask (+10) and Mask (+20) each adding the number of Free Spins corresponding to the number on them. That means that apart from standard Free Spins Bonus you get additional spins depending on the type of mask in your combo. So you can earn up to 150 Free Spins.
What really makes this game stand out are, as you may suppose, the Jackpots. The Jackpots are triggered by Green Triggers which actually colour the background of the reels.
There are 5 different Jackpots activated by Green Triggers: Mini, Minor, Major, Burst and Pulse, while the last two are launched when you hit four Green Triggers and one Red Trigger on the fifth reel. Depending on the size of your bet you can activate two different Jackpots with this combination.
The first one is Splurge which is awarded for bets under $2.0 and the second one is the one why most of you will play this game – Progressive Jackpot which can only be activated if you bet $2 or more.
When you see all the Jackpots it is clear that this game can put a smile on your face and money on your bank account. The Progressive Award can amount up to $55,000, while the rest of the Jackpots depend on the size of your bet but even if you bet under $2 you stand to win as much as $40,000, which is pretty generous.
But what will you do if you are not lucky enough to land any of the Jackpots? We think that Free Spins that can climb up to 150 and award up to 5x multipliers in Free Spins round will console you just fine.
We can clearly see the work of experienced slot developers here. WMS have launched their first progressive slot and they haven’t left anything to chance.
The exotic theme to keep you in Brazil after the Olympic Games; light and relaxing soundtrack to put you in the mood for landing huge prizes from Jackpots or spin your way to winnings through loads of Free Spins and multipliers.
Even if you are not the biggest fan of Latin dances, festivals and celebrations you should not miss out on the hefty rewards this slot offers.
