The new game features the world-famous carnival with exotic masks, dancers, and drinks filling the reels with shining collect symbols, while the lead dancer in the red headdress acts as a Wild.
The Money Collect feature is active in the base game with Disco Orb symbols containing random cash values on every spin. On the fifth reel, there is a chance one of five Collect symbols can land, either modifying the winnings or immediately collecting the values on the screen. The Extra Credit Collect adds more value to the Symbols on show, while the Multiplier Collect applies to all Money Symbols present on the screen, increasing their value.
Heart of Rio’s Free Spins mode is triggered if Bonus Symbols land on reels 2, 3, and 4, where Money Symbols and all Collect Features are active and all values are accumulated throughout the round.
When the Free Spins end, the entire value of the pot is returned to the reels in the form of a giant Money Symbol, with one final respin being triggered. If the Collect symbol hits, the bonus pot is paid out, leading to huge wins.
Heart of Rio is the latest title to feature in Pragmatic Play’s slots portfolio, following the recent launch of Panda’s Fortune 2, as it joins Sweet Bonanza and Wolf Gold.
The Chief Business Development Officer at Pragmatic Play Yossi Barzely, said: “Developing a diverse product portfolio is vital for any supplier as it looks to grow and we’re very pleased to add another thrilling slot game to our ever-growing offering.
