There’s a carnival in the Streets of Brazil! These dancing queens promise you 6 progressive jackpots in the Dancing in Rio mobile slot.
This is the first of the Williams Interactive jackpot slots on mobile, and they’ve gone all out, giving you not one, but 6 possible jackpots you can win.
However, how it works is a little different from most. Namely because you need to bet at least 2 cash in one spin to trigger the big progressive jackpot that tends to go into the tens to hundreds of thousands.
Otherwise you get a top jackpot of 25,000x your bet. The other 5 jackpots are always relative in size to your actual bet, regardless of whether you spin 2 or more.
Basically, those are still pretty sweet jackpot amounts, regardless of how much you want to bet, but there’s no doubt that the more you are willing to put in, the more satisfying the potential wins.
This is a WMS slot game. So of course, it looks pretty, in that ‘old-fashioned, straight out of Vegas’ kinda of way.
You get 5×4 reels and 40 paylines of Ace to 9 symbols and then a hoard of dancers in bright colours. The one to watch out for is the Dancing Queen, who always comes stacked 4 high, and the wild symbol, which generally comes stacked in this Dancing in Rio slot machine.
Both together will get you some surprising wins in the base game, but other than that, you’ll be looking out for those jackpots and the free spins.
This isn’t a hard hitting game per say. Really, it’s keeping you spinning for as long as possible in order to grow those jackpots.
However, this is still WMS, meaning that Dancing in Rio slot game has some good wins, namely the fact that you can get up to 50 free spins by getting 5 scatters on screen.
Granted, you are more likely to trigger 10 with 3 scatters, but it’s very easy to get more thanks to a special number on the mask symbol that can suddenly give you from +2 to +20 free spins.
This is not a revolutionary mobile phone slot, but as the first foray for WMS into progressive jackpot games for mobile, it’s a lively fun affair which hits all the right dancing buttons.

Wildz: The Dancing in Rio slot logo is wild and replaces all other symbols on screen except scatter.
Rio Queen: The highest paid symbol on screen comes stacked 4 high.
Free Spin Bonus: 3, 4 or 5 scatter mask symbols trigger free spins, giving you a base line of 10, 20 or 50 free spins.
Better yet, those masks can come with a +2, +5, +10, or +20 on them, giving you that many additional free spins to your bonus games.
No multipliers or special features, just the chance to win a shed load of bonus rounds.
Progressive Jackpot Slot Rules: Which of the 6 jackpots you trigger depends on the colour background of the reels.
You'll notice most of the symbols have a background of green or purple, and some red.
Depending on how many reels are covered in those colours, depends on which of the 6 jackpots you win.
For example; the progressive jackpot is won when reel 1-4 is green, and reel 5 is red.
Meanwhile, you only need 3 green reels, and 2 purple reels, to trigger the mini, minor or major jackpot.
The progressive jackpot is only available if you bet at least 2 cash per spin, but even if you don't, there's a sweet top prize you can play for.
Just note that the return to player rate for this Dancing in Rio slot game increases if you do have the progressive jackpot turned on.
Getting much more than 10x or 20x your bet here isn't easy - unless, of course, you trigger one of those 6 tantalising jackpots.
That said, we generally liked the theme, music and feel of this Dancing in Rio mobile slot, which keeps you playing and hoping that the right colours will come along, and you get that life-changing amount.
If you want a WMS machine with more bonus features than jackpots, then we'd recommend you try Nemo's Voyage slot instead.
