- A new Pragmatic Play slot with lots of features
- Collect features vary to make things more interesting
- Maximum payout is much lower than advertised
Heart of Rio slot is a new game from Pragmatic Play with lots of collect features including expanding symbols, respins and many more. You also have a free spins bonus as well, as you might expect.
Starting with the basics though, this game has a rather symbol design with a theme that doesn’t really add much apart from a splash of colour. You have 5 reels and 3 rows to give you 25 pay lines. All you need is a winning combination from left to right using the base symbols which are as follows, ranked in ascending order based on their value:
- Jack, Queen, King or Ace
- Green Woman
- Purple Woman
There is a wild symbol too, substituting for all the symbols in a winning combination apart from the bonus, money and collect symbol. It appears only on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5.

Heart of Rio Slot Bonuses and Features
Money Collect Feature. If you manage to land a money symbol on one of the first 4 reels and a collect symbol on reel 5, you’ll be given one of the following depending on the symbol:
- Collect. The values of all money symbols are added together and paid.
- Extra Credit Collect. The value os the symbol is added to all money symbols then paid.
- Multiplier Collect. The money symbols values are multipliers by the value of the multiplier collect symbol, then added together and paid.
- Expanding Collect. All reels with a money symbol expand, taking a new value and then added and paid.
- Respin Collect. All money symbols stay in place while remaining positions respin, with the new values added and then paid.
Free Spins Bonus. For this you’ll need 3 scatters symbols to give you 8 free spins. Here, all money symbol values are added into a bonus pot. At the end of the bonus, the final value is given as a giant mon symbol on reels 1-4. If you get a collect symbol on reel 5, the value is paid. You can also land more scatter symbols during the bonus to get 8 more free spins, without limits.
Heart of Rio slot from Pragmatic Play has lots of different features, though they all work in a similar way and are quite different to most other slots out there which is quite refreshing. In the base game you may end up with some half decent wins, but the free spins bonus offers better rewards if you manage to land a collect symbol on the final respin. If you don’t, you will be very frustrated. Even though the claimed maximum win here is 10,500x your stake, that’s very misleading as you can only win 800x your stake on a single spin. It’s a shame they’ve done that and players will no doubt be disappointed. The RTP is a little low too, so overall it’s not a slot I’d highly recommend unfortunately.
