Dancing in Rio – dancing to the bank!

Wear the most colourful thing you’ve got and get a good night’s sleep because if you’re playing the Dancing in Rio slot made by WMS, this party is going to go on all night.

Inspired by the Rio Carnival, the biggest in the world with two million people attending each year, this casino slot has all the elements of a great slot release – quirky, original and very likely to quickly gather a cult following of players loving the flamboyance and party mood that runs through the game.

Of course, cool symbols and a unique theme only get you so far as a video slot you want to keep playing so I’m sure you want to hear about its features and ways to win. Well, jump aboard the float of your choice and enjoy the ride because all is about to be revealed.

Dancing in Rio: Before you take your first samba steps…

WMS love a crazy party-themed game because the ‘Alice and the Mad Tea Party’ video slot was also of their making before they gave you and me the Dancing in Rio casino game. And if you like music to play a big role in your slots, then they’re your sort of game provider because let’s not forget that it was them who released the mega-successful ‘Kiss’ video slot.

Dancing in Rio is a classic 5×4 slot and most of the symbols look like they’ve just boarded a plane straight from the streets of Rio and onto your computer screens.

It has free spins on offer and six Jackpots, plus a Progressive Jackpot that I’m talking about below. Like with all slots here at G2G, you’ll enjoy it as much on your mobile or tablet as you will on desktop.

Dancing girls that will ‘float’ your boat

One of the characteristics of the Rio Carnival are the floats, slowly-moving decorated vehicles or platforms (towed behind vehicles) packed with members of Rio’s 200+ samba schools. Scattered around the reels of the Dancing in Rio video slot are four different dancers who look like they’ve been partying the night away on floats such as the ones they have at the Rio Carnival.

Ok, confession time: I have a favourite symbol. It’s the one of the beautiful dancing girl who is a stacked symbol filling up a whole reel. If you can match her up with the game’s fixed wild symbol represented by the game logo, you could be dancing your way to the bank with a small fortune in your hands to deposit. But that’s only half the story: I think she looks a lot like Sofia Vergara, who has immortalised the Gloria character in hit US TV show Modern Family. And if that’s not a bonus, I don’t know what is.

I feel a bit sorry for the band playing in the background because they never stop playing! But the music fits in with the carnival theme of course and it wouldn’t be the same without it.

Features that feature in Dancing in Rio

One thing I really liked about this game is that you can secure plenty of decent and frequent wins in the base gameplay. I was a little disappointed that in WMS’ online slot Montezuma, it was only really in the bonus rounds that you got decent wins. Here you don’t need to trigger the bonus to get decent pay-outs but unsurprisingly, it’s still the bonuses that do give you the biggest wins of all.

Free Spins

The mask symbol is the Scatter so get three of those and it’s free spins time. You’re guaranteed at least 10 free spins but can get more if one or more of the mask symbols has a number on it. In fact, you can get up to 100 free spins. Well, that would get any party started. You can also be awarded more free spins during the free spins round and from what I’ve seen so far, this actually happens more often than on most other slots.


Given some slots don’t have Jackpots at all, I know I’m onto a winner of a game when I find one that has six…plus a Big Progressive Jackpot. Ok, admittedly the Mini and Minor Jackpots aren’t going to make you rich on the spot but once you start getting to Major and Burst Jackpot territory, these are prizes that will have you doing some samba moves of celebration in your living room, Brazilian star striker-style. After that comes the Pulse Jackpot, the Surge Jackpot and then the biggest of all, the Progressive Jackpot. You can get your hands on this one as long as you’re playing at least 2 Euros per spin. If this one comes in, you’re crowned King or Queen of the Rio Carnival! As the Brazilians would say: Beleza. Or how you or I would say it: you little beauty!

Dance away in Rio

It’s not always the most high-profile online slots that end up being the best and Dancing in Rio might just join ‘The 1421 Voyages of Zheng He’  as a favourite here at G2G!

And as normal I’ve picked out the top Indian casinos who feature Dancing in Rio that you can enjoy playing with real money. Good luck!
