Spin along to the rhythm of the carnival in Dancing in Rio, a 5 reel, 40 payline, progressive jackpot video slot powered by WMS. This samba extravaganza comes with a bonus feature where you can win up to 150 free spins as well as some bumper jackpot prizes. Play from between 40p and £50 per spin.

As befitting one of the most exciting cities in the world, Dancing in Rio is a bright and bold affair as far as design is concerned. The obligatory lower value playing cards are present and correct and they’re joined by a troupe of dancers dressed in outlandish carnival costumes.

The dancers can expand to fill the whole reel in which they appear and prove quite the visual feast. They can be lucrative too with the top payer awarding 1,000 times your line bet if you manage to land 5 on a payline.

The masquerade style mask is the game’s scatter – land 3 or more to trigger the Free Spins feature and with it 10 free spins. Extra +2, +5, +10 and +20 scatter masks are added to the reels during the feature. When they land, that number will be added to your total. A total of 150 free spins is theoretically possible.

Unusually for a WMS powered slot, Dancing in Rio also offers a series of progressive jackpot payouts – Mini, Minor, Major, Burst, Pulse and Surge. To be in with a chance of winning them, first fill the green trigger backgrounds that appear adjacent to the reels.

Prizes start at just a few pounds but can deliver a potentially life-changing bonanza. You have to be playing at minimum stakes of at least £2 per spin to have a shot at winning the biggest prizes. Proportionate jackpots are made if you’re playing at lower levels.

As you’d expect from a slot called Dancing in Rio, this game has a strong party feel. The design is pretty good and the stacked symbols can provide plenty of base game thrills. The free spins round isn’t bad either. Add the jackpot element to the mix and this is one carnival that’s well worth attending. I also recommend you try some of WMS’ land based favourites with Zeus a must.
