Low value symbols are represented by the high end of a deck of cards, from 10 through to Ace. If the right amount of matching combinations land on a single spin, these symbols can offer between x0.5 and x32 the player’s bet.

Maracas and bongos depict the medium value symbols, offering between x1.5 and x40 the player’s preferred stake.

High value symbols come in the form of three carnival dancers with colours of green, red and purple. These symbols can offer between x0.5 and x100, depending on the amount of winning combinations that land on one go.

Wild crowns can also appear, substituting for all symbols other than the scatter.

Finally, Brazil flags depict the scatter symbol for this game. These scatters will always appear in stacks of three symbols on one reel, triggering the free spins feature if three or more scatter stacks appear on the same spin.


As the free spins feature begins, players must choose one of five features to be activated, with each feature deciding which paytable symbol will appear stacked on the reel set for the duration of the game mode. 

Selecting the wild to expand in the game mode will provide six, nine or 12 free spins if three, four or five scatter stacks landed on the reels respectively. 

Choosing the highest value purple carnival dancer symbols provides eight, 12 or 16 spins and the second-highest value red dancer gives out 10, 15 or 20 spins.

If players choose the third-highest value green dancer, they will receive 12, 18 or 24 free spins, depending on how many scatter stacks landed to activate the game mode. 

Players can also choose a mystery feature, which can award anywhere between six and 24 free spins, depending on which random symbol is chosen from the above options. 

Furthermore, players can buy access to the free spins feature for the price of a significantly increased bet. 


Ivan Kravchuk, CEO at Evoplay, stated: “The release of Hot Rio Nights gives us the opportunity to honour the Carnival festival with both our global and Latin American audience. 

“Evoplay’s design and animation team did a terrific job with capturing the magic of the event, transporting players to the famous Brazilian city, and combined with our world-class mechanics, we have a truly exciting slot.”
