Rio Stars Slot Review

Released February 2020

The Rio Stars slot game can be found at casinos offering Red Tiger software. Red Tiger is a relatively new software developer in the online gaming market, having only been in operation since 2014. Red Tiger focus primarily on slots games but do offer a few table games, albeit a very limited range of them. In compliance with UK gaming legislation, Red Tiger publish the RTP/House Edge information for their slots games within their pay tables. As such, we can say that the House Edge for Rio Stars is 4.27%.

Rio Stars is a 5 reel slot that is 4 symbols high. The game uses paylines, with 30 in total, playing from left to right.


The theme for this one is the Carnival in Rio. Think bright colours, loud music and people having a good time.


Wild – The Wild symbol is the “Samba Dancer”, which will substitute for all paying symbols.

Free Spins – The Free Spins symbol is the “Rio Spins”. You need 3 or more of them in a single spin to trigger the Free Spins feature. “Rio Spins” symbols only land on reels 1, 3 and 5.


Free Spins – If you trigger the Free Spins you will be given a random number of Free Spins. That number can increase if the Carnival Drums awards them, but this is again a random feature. Each spin comes the chance to be awarded an additional random feature, each of which can also be triggered in the base game and are all described below:

Rio Multiplier – If a Rio Multiplier is triggered at random it will be applied to any wins that follow in the next spin. If another multiplier is awarded then the two will be added together.

Mega Wild – A Mega Wild can land on the reels on any spin and will be between 2x2 and 3x3 in size. It will act as a normal Wild.

Rio Dancers – If this random feature triggers then additional Wild symbols will be added to the reels.

Rio Symbols – If this random feature triggers then all the low paying symbols will be removed and replaced by high paying ones.


Rio Stars is nothing particularly ground-breaking but it is a solid effort from Red Tiger. You get Wilds and Free Spins and you get a number of random features that could trigger on any spin. The slot looks OK but, again it is nothing all that special. The house edge is higher than we would want it to be and as such this isn’t one we would recommend you play.
