Carnival in Rio de Janeiro is the biggest party in the world, known for its lush colors, dancing girls, and soulful music. Red Tiger Gaming is giving us the chance to celebrate alongside millions of Brazilians with their Rio Stars slot. The game takes place on a Carnival float and it offers some striking visuals as well as some nice features that keep you spinning.
Rio Stars is a 5 reel, 30 payline video slot that is set on a Carnival float, decked out with features and bright lights. The game's icons are a combination of traditional slot icons as well as festival-specific visuals. These include 10s, Js, Qs, Ks, and As as well as tropical fruit, a colorful drink, maracas, a parrot, and a busty dancer.
Features in the game include wild symbols, scatters, free spins, win multipliers, stacked symbols, and stacked wilds. The game has a max win of over 2,000x your wagered amount. You'll find that the game's layout and features give Rio Stars a posted return to player percentage (RTP) of 95.7%, which is a shade lower than what we're used to seeing from online slots. This theoretically means that you'll lose your money a bit faster with this game, although your mileage may vary.
The gameplay here is okay, but is propped up by a very active soundtrack and those bright visuals. This game is teeming with life and it looks amazing on your smartphone or tablet. I think the smaller screens make it look bolder than a desktop screen, so if you play mobile slots, this is a good choice.
If you've never made it down to Carnival in Brazil, this game will let you experience the celebration without the hangover, and you may even be able to walk away with a little extra cash in your pocket!
