Rio Stars Slot (Red Tiger)

Rio Stars Slot (Red Tiger)Rio de Janeiro Carnival is one of the most loved themes. This theme brings us a lot of inspiration, Red Tiger has used it as part of a slot they have created called Rio Stars.

Rio Stars seems to have great features that seem to make the game quite interesting to play. I spent some time playing the slot, and here is my review:

Game Set-Up

For Rio Starts, Red Tiger has used 5reels with only 4 rows of symbols. However, there is a total of 30 lines present.

The features are very exciting too, and we have Rio Dancer Wilds, Mega Wilds (3x3 sized), Rio Win Multipliers, and Free Rio Spins

Betting and Prizes

For e wagers, you only need as little as $0.10 to get the reels spinning, a maximum of $40 per spin I allowed.

The highest payout potential of this slot is 2,000x the stake. This means that on a lucky day, you can take home as much as $80,000 from a single spin.

Sadly, despite the slot being highly volatile, Red Tiger has given it an RTP of 95.73% RTP, which is below the average in the industry.

Rio Stars Slot Features

The most notable feature is the wild, and you can use it to form winning combinations.

It appears in a stacked form, and it’s in the image of the Rio Dancer. You can also use this symbol to form combinations have the potential to award payments of up to 30x the stake per each full pay line.

A number of these features appear randomly. On a number of occasions, the wilds will appear in mega size. This means that they will take up space as large as 3x3.

There are Carnival Reels as well, and these are modes that will allow only the use of high-value symbols and features.

With the Rio Multipliers, you can get boosted wins of as much as 20x, which make it a very impressive feature.

There is another random feature a well, and this is the Rio Dancer. When randomly added to the reels, they will give you multiple wilds that you can use to boost your winnings.

If you love free spins, then this is the place to be. These also come via the Rio, and with them, you will gain access to Carnival Drums in each spin that you make.

With up to three scatters, you will be able to trigger a random number of spins.

Theme & Design

Rio Star is a fun game to play. I like the fact that the game uses both a classic and modern approach, and the features present make it a very exciting game to play.

It’s highly detailed which blends in some non-related symbols like the Royals. Other present symbols include bowls filled with tropical fruits, Rio Dancer (wild) and some parrots.


Rio Stars performs quite well on the most part. It’s a fun game to play, but its high volatility does not go hand in hand with its low RTP.

This game is only ideal for casual players, and I would not recommend it to professional gamers.
