Time to get your dancing shoes, sparkling bra and feathered boa out of the cupboard with this beautiful Rio Stars mobile slot by Red Tiger Game.
Rio Stars is a 5 reel and 4 rows full of lively colours, celebrating the best of the Carnival festival in Brazil. The beautiful dancer is the wild symbol and usually comes stacked, as does the high paying Parrot symbols.
You then get Ace to 10 as low paying symbols, followed by fruits, cocktails and musical instruments. If it can be multicoloured, Red Tiger Gaming has made sure that it’s as vibrant as it can be. They’ve used all the colours of the rainbow, with a little emphasis on purples, pinks and golds.
Yeap, that’s the top win of this Rio Stars slot, with it’s 30 paylines full of features. How many slot features?
Randomly, the festival drums may show up and trigger any one of the following features: give you a mega wild, add extra wilds, give you a multiplier on the next win, or remove all low paying symbols.
The feature that is the most important to get the top win is the multipliers of course – but strangely that doesn’t mean it’s all that elusive. We’ve seen it trigger multiple times.
The problem is that to get those 2,500x your bet wins, you need to hit a top symbol win with a 20x multiplier. You probably get on average around 3x to 5x multiplier on a more regular basis.
The good news is that the multiplier is always applied to the next win, regardless of how long it takes to win. Better yet, the multiplier can be added together if you get two features in a row.
We managed to win almost 600x our bet on a good free spin round. When we say this Rio Stars slot has big wins, we mean it.
How? Because those random drum features that show up whenever it wants in the base game, are guaranteed to hit on every single Rio Stars free spin bonus.
So those multipliers, more importantly, usually end up being merged with another feature: like mega wilds, or no low paying symbols. It leads to some far more impressive wins that you might expect – better yet if the multipliers add up together on multiple features in a row.
This is a fabulous game. The RTP is a little low, so be careful and use the friendly minimum bet of 0.10 a spin to build up your stack if your budget is on the conservative side.
That said, you are almost guaranteed to have a good time in this high octane Rio Star slot which is fast becoming one of our favourite Red Tiger slot games.

Wild: The Wild Dancer symbol substitute for all other symbols on the reel to create a win. It doesn't substitute for bonus symbols.
Carnival Drums: If the carnival drums appear on the reels, you may trigger one of multiple features.
Scatter and Free Spins: Three Rio spins symbols on reels 1, 3 and 5 will award a random amount of free spins. Carnival drums may randomly appear to increase the awarded amount of free spins. Every spin during the free spins will feature one of the Carnival Drums features or may award extra bonus spins.
Gamble Feature: After any win, you can gamble that win by spinning a wheel and seeing if it lands in red or green. If it lands in red, you lose your bet. If it lands in green, you win. How much you win depends on how much you are willing to bet for the win. The bigger the green slice, the less you win, the more red slice, the more you could win.
The Rio Stars slot game is a manic crazy slot with so many random features and happy beats, you may not notice that the RTP is surprisingly low for a game of its type.
Which is why we can't give this addition to our Red Tiger slots list the full stars it deserves, as the RTP simply lets it down. Not to mention that the top win of 2,500x your bet will require some impressive and very elusive bigger multipliers.
That said, we can't fault the energy, the features, or the wins. With so many vibrant colours and a multitude of features this game is wicked fun.
Just let your expectation of how much you can win be a little lower than what Rio Stars advertises, and you'll avoid disappointment.
