Dancing in Rio is powered by WMS Gaming and is a progressive jackpot video slot with 5 reels and 40 paylines. Playable across desktop, mobile and tablet devices from 40p to £50 per spin, this is WMS’ first progressive game they have launched – there are 6 jackpots and 1 progressive to be won
The theme is the Rio de Janeiro carnival with plenty of colour and excitement – using the popular 5×4 game engine, this land based favourite has now danced its way from the casino floor to the online space. Extravagant and elegant, it’s a time for celebration.
Symbols on the reels include plenty of dancers who are beautifully dressed and look rather hot! The dancers can appear as stacked which helps with your winnings – the highest value symbol is the XXX symbol which rewards you with 1,000 times your line stake if you get 5 on a payline.
There’s a Free Games Bonus feature which is triggered when you get 3 or more mask symbols anywhere on the reels. Look out for special bonus masks (+2, +5, +10 and +20) that can be part of the scatter bonus trigger and reward you with additional free spins to the ones already awarded by the bonus trigger. There’s up to 150 free spins in total to be won!
When it comes to jackpots, there’s 6 to be won with 1 progressive jackpot – you have the Mini, Minor, Major, Burst, Pulse and Surge jackpot as well as the Progressive jackpot. Each reel contains a number of adjacent positions that are filled, at random, with green trigger symbol backgrounds. The 5th reel contains a number of adjacent positions that are filled, again at random, with red trigger symbol backgrounds.
In order to win, you need to get full reels with green trigger backgrounds – for example, seeing green on reels 1, 2, 3 and 4 will reward you with the Burst jackpot. In order to win the progressive jackpot, you need to be playing at £2 or more per spin and see green on all 5 reels.
It’s not the best game from WMS by any stretch of the imagination but not a bad addition. If you want something with better bonus features, cannot go wrong with the volatile Black Knight II or the superb Wizard of Oz Ruby Slippers.
