Pragmatic Play released a new online slot game, Heart of Rio. Well, not really a new slot game because it’s an exact copy of John Hunter and the Tomb of the Scarab Queen.
This new version uses a Brazilian carnival theme.
Heart of Rio comes with 25 lines on 5 reels, each 3 symbols high.
The game features stacked wild symbols on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 and scatter symbols on reels 2, 3 and 5. It also comes with Disco Ball symbols that have cash values on them. These appear on reels 1, 2, 3 and 4.
As I mention above the game features disco ball symbols that have cash values on them. When one or more of these appear on the reels and a special symbol appears on reel 5 you will collect all values on the other reels.
But this special symbol on reel 5 can also increase the disco ball values. Here are all modifiers.
- Collect – All values are collected
- Extra Credit Collect – The value from the extra credit is added to all values and then all values are collected
- Multiplier Collect – The multiplier is applied to all values after which they are all collected
- Expanding Collect – Any disco ball on any reel will expand to cover the entire reel with random values, after which they are all collected
- Re-spin Collect – All value symbols are held and all other symbols re-spin once, after this all value symbols are collected
Free Spins Feature
If you get all three scatter symbols on reels 2, 3 and 4 you are awarded with 8 free spins.
During free spins special collect symbols on reel 5 appear more often.
Also all value symbols appearing during free spins are collected. After the free spins you get 1 free spin where if you get a collect symbol on reel 5 you will collect that total amount of the free spins.
This new version is an exact copy of John Hunter and the Tomb of the Scarab Queen. Why they added another version with a new theme, I have no idea. Maybe this theme will get more players excited.
I already liked the old version and so I also like this new version. But I don’t think a new version needed to be added.
