Heart of Rio Slot (Pragmatic Play)

Heart of Rio Slot (Pragmatic Play)Heart of Rio comes to you via Pragmatic Play, and the story is dedicated to the popular Rio de Janeiro Carnival. It is no wonder that has a lot of Brazil’s attractions that range from exotic birds to the prettiest women donning carnival costumes.

In most of their slots, Pragmatic Play uses high-end graphics and this is the same thing I witnessed on this particular title.

Here are more details about this slot:

Game Set-Up

I love the excitement of being at a carnival in Brazil, and you will immediately get this feeling while playing the Heart of Rio slot.

For the design, Pragmatic Play has gone with the usual 5x3 reels, and up to 25 pay lines. Features are also great, and among them are free spins, Scatters, wild symbol, and a Money Collect feature.

Betting and Prizes

Any active line on this feature must be covered by coins, which translates to about 25 and 250 coins per spin.

When it comes to real money wagers, you will need to place bets between $0.25 and $125 per spin.

The pay-outs are quite impressive, and I love the fact that you can walk away with as much as 10,500x the stake.

Heart of Rio is a medium volatility slot and its RTP of 96.50% serves it perfectly.

Heart of Rio Features

ON this slot, I only got the wild symbol on reels 2-5, therefore, it can only be used as a replacement for the regular icons.

One of the best features is the Queen of the Carnival, and it comes in the image of a young woman donning some red feathers, plus a gold heart headband.

Then there is another equally good feature which is the Money Collect. This one revolves around the Money symbols and will land on reels 1 all the way to reel 4. You can also get it on Collect symbols appearing on the 5th reel.

Depending on the type of Collect symbol that you get on the 5th reel, you will be able to enjoy different events like:

Collect: gathers all visible Money Symbols.

Extra Collect: boost the Money symbols, and also collects them.

Multiplier Collect: the prizes visible on Money symbols get a multiplier.

Expanding Collect: Money icons expand on the reels, after which they will acquire a new value. Afterwards, they all get collected.

Respin Collect: Money symbols become sticky, while the rest of the symbols respin and may bring additional Money symbols. They are all collected at the end.

The features with a Bonus logo and drums act as the scatter and will land on reel 2-4. With the entire 3 scatters landing on these reels, I was able to activate up to 8 free spins.

It is possible to retrigger these free rounds if you manage to land another batch of 3 scatters.

Theme & Design

The graphics suggest that this slot is a carnival-themed game, and I enjoyed the magnificent view of Rio de Janeiro.

The symbols include dancers (wild), images of masks, Drums, cocktails, and golden Royals (4).


Heart of Rio offers a lot of excitement, and particularly with its goof features, great payout potential, and medium volatility.

I love everything about this slot, and I can recommend it to all levels of players.
