It’s time to put your time travel pants back on, Wombat fans, as we are heading straight past Ancient Greece with its Amazing Link Fates slot and back to the dinosaur era in the Raging Rex 2 slot from Play ‘n Go. And don’t go hiding in any of those outside dunnies- we all know where that leads.
This may be your first jaunt in the slot game world, or you could be a veteran, but either way, you will know that many successful games are remade into sequels. The original version of this game, Raging Rex, was pretty popular, so the sequel, Raging Rex 2, was released in the early months of 2022 and has gained quite a few fans.
This game’s maximum payout on this 6 reel, 4 row slot is a roaring 30,000x your playing stake and the multiple bonus features make the game very enjoyable.
Raging Rex 2 Design
This game was developed by a group of iGaming wizards known as Play’n’Go- the people behind the Deff Leppard slot and others.
These guys and gals are well-known in the online casino gaming space and the design on this game hits new heights. Great graphics (I love the way the T-Rex pops out of the reels) and smooth gameplay make this game a real entertainer. There are prehistoric dragonflies buzzing around all over the place and plenty of animation to keep things interesting.
There’s no doubt you are in the Jurassic period, with lots of greens and yellows about and a dramatic, Hollywood style music score. We all know the inspiration behind that one. It has that same soaring feeling as the 25000 Talons slot, but that’s set in another era.
The reels in this game are laid out in a 6 by 4 formation, with a total of 4096 available ways to win. The standard 10, J, Q, K and A are notably absent in this slot, and have been replaced by some colourful fossilised Dinosaur footprints in various shapes and sizes. The other symbols in this game are 4 different types of dinosaurs: there’s a pachycephalosaurus, stegosaurus, brachiosaurus and an ankylosaurus. That last one was so names because they have very nice ankles.
Yep, it’s time to brush up on your palaeontology.
There are 2 Wild symbols in this game which both have their special feature attached. We will discuss these below. The game also has a Scatter symbol which triggers the main bonus feature and a shot at that 30,000x top payout.
Raging Rex 2 Slot Gameplay
The game runs very smoothly with some great graphics and that audio backdrop that will grip you from the beginning.
Before you spin the reels, make sure you have set your bet level to a value you are comfortable with.
Change the bet amount using the designated button: set how much you stake per spin and control your spending while you play.
This game sports “Hatchling Wild” symbols that can take the place of regular symbols and can expand to fill four rows on your reels. If the Rex Wild lands fully in view it will triggers the respin feature, and each respin causes the symbol to “walk” to the left by one reel, meaning you get additional respins until the symbol has moved fully off the reels. This means you can get up to 5 respins from a single spin, all with a Wild active! Dino Dynamite!
The bonus feature comes with three options triggered by landing three or more of the bonus Egg symbols on your reels. The options are as follows;
– Primal Fury comes with 8, 12, 16 or 20 free spins, and the Rex Wild is present on each spin.
– Hatchling Mania comes with 7, 9, 11 or 13 free spins and the Hatling wild moves around the reels with random multipliers attached.
– Jurassic Mayhem comes with 5, 7, 9 or 11 free spins, with both wilds moving around the reels randomly.
Raging Rex 2 Summary
The Raging Rex 2 slot not only has the two wilds but also three different bonus features. Play ‘n Go have worked in some generous features into this good looking slot. The gameplay is smooth and enjoyable, and if your luck is in, you can find yourself landing some decent winners.
