The Wombat says: This wombat would love to go on safari. As long as we can avoid getting served up as lunch by one of the ‘Big 5′ that you will see in the Raging Rhino slot.
So, we were pretty excited when this slot game popped up in our spin boxes at Wombat Towers.’
‘A safe safari with hard cash wins? What’s not to like?’ we thought.
This slot from SG Digital is all about the Raging Rhino (the one beast that gives those crazy roaring dinos in the Jurassic World slot a run for their money).
The slot game also features other kinds of African wildlife, but playing this slot is mostly about the Raging Rhino himself, as the all-important thick-skinned fella could stampede his way to huge wins as the game’s highest-paying symbol.
Let’s fire up the Raging Rhino slot and see what it’s made of.
About the Raging Rhino developer
SG Digital is the online offshoot of real-life slot machine makers WMS and part of the Light and Wonder group. Best known for developing classic slots like Irish-themed Rainbow Riches (or buying them anyway), these genius game creators hail from my spiritual home, Las Vegas which makes them experts in our book.
They have also been in business a very long time which means they know how to make the games that slot fans like to play…
Look and Feel
Raging Rhino is set in the African savannah, and the graphics depict some beautiful scenery and native wildlife. Your reels will expand to fill the foreground and hide the sun-baked background each time you spin – which is a nice design touch. Overall, the graphics aren’t ground-breaking, but they’re slick.
The soundtrack however is a completely different kettle of fish (or should we say rhino?) The music is upbeat with African tribal bongo and what sounds like a xylophone plinking away.
And during the Raging Rhino’s Free Spins round, the tunes pick up pace and become even more frenetic if big wins start rolling in. Chanting and drums make for atmospheric gameplay, that’s for sure!
One of this Wombat’s favourite touches is when you land four or more of the Rhino icons on your reels – at this point, you’ll suddenly hear a loud ‘RHINO’ scream at you from your speakers, along with the sound of a charging, trampling beast making its way along the dusty floor of the Serengeti.
It’s genuinely scary. Well, for a small wombat, it is…
Raging Rhino Slot Game Play
Raging Rhino is a well-loved classic that began life as a bricks-and-mortar fruit machine in all the biggest Vegas casinos, and not much has changed in terms of playing the online version.
Raging Rhino is a six-reel, four-row slot with 4,096 Ways to Win and it is quite a step up from more traditional games like King of Slots and Rainbow Riches. Yes, you might not have seen a slot like this before Wombat Fans (well unless you’ve played the Pixie Gold slot – that’s got a great big set of reels in it as well).
For starters, there’s the unusual 6×4 slot formation, not to mention the win-anyway gameplay. So, what does the expression ‘4096 Ways to Win’ mean?
Well, let me explain. It means that in this online slot, you will find 4,096 different winning combos possible on every single spin – and you can make these wins as long as you land matching symbols on adjacent reels.
Mind-blowing isn’t it? It’s time to say goodbye to all those pesky pay-lines!
Bets start from as little as 0.01, and go all the way up to the maximum bet of 30.00 per spin in your local currency so there is a good amount of variety in the betting levels that should keep most players happy, from the more cautious slot fan to the high rollers amongst you.
Your symbols on these gigantic reels are made up of various wild African animals that you would find on the Serengeti and these include cheetahs, snappy alligators, a bunch of mongooses and some grumpy-looking gorillas, plus the angry rhino of course.
The lower value symbols are the standard playing cards 9, 10, J, Q, K & A.
The Wild symbol in Raging Rhino is represented by the umbrella tree with the setting sun behind it. This cool little symbol will do the usual job of substituting for all other symbols on the reels (except for the Scatters) to help you make up extra winning combos.
But that’s not all, as the Wild in Raging Rhino will also become a 2x or 3x multiplier when it forms part of a winning spin (which can be a lucrative touch), and it doubles up too. So, if you land two wilds with a 3x multiplier, you’ll get a 6x boost to your win.
There’s no progressive jackpot on offer in Raging Rhino, but, if you’re playing at the highest bet level, landing six of the Diamond scatters can award up to 40,000 coins – which is the highest possible payout in the Raging Rhino slot pay table. Not bad!
Free Spins Bonus Round
This online slot is all about the Free Spins Wombat Fans, and when they do finally come, they rage!
To set off the lucrative bonus feature you will need to land three or more of the Diamond Scatters across the reels. The number of Free Spins you scoop will depend on how many Scatters you landed in the first place.
Three Scatters will get you eight Free Spins, four Scatters will dole out fifteen Free Spins, five Scatters will earn you twenty Free Spins, and six Scatters will win you a hefty fifty Free Spins.
Finally, SG Digital has set this game up so that if you win less than 10x your stake during the whole of the bonus feature, there is a Bonus Guarantee on offer. This means that they will pay you out at least 10x your original bet at the end of the round.
Raging Rhino on Mobile
As with almost all online slots available nowadays, Raging Rhino is optimised for gameplay on all your devices. It’s not a mobile-first release (like ELK Studios’ Kaiju slot for example), but the reels will still look and play perfectly on your Android and IOS mobiles and tablets, as well as those desktops. Which means you can spin while you’re on the go.
Raging Rhino Megaways
If you haven’t quite had enough stampeding play for one day – take a crack at Raging Rhino Megaways, Wombat Fans. This souped-up version of the Raging Rhino slot has six reels, seven rows and a huge 117,649 ways to win…
The configuration of the reels changes on every spin; on top of the standard reels, you’ll see another four above, and the number of rows on each reel can vary between two to seven on every spin. This means that the number of ways to win changes with each spin, too.
This Wombat has no idea how the Raging Rhino in this game got so angry (maybe it’s something to do with the blazing Serengeti – the heat will do that to some animals), but we do know one thing: this online slot is a volatile game. So if you’re prepared to spin long and hard for the big wins then this will be right up your street.
The Raging Rhino is a slick-looking slot game that is action-packed and atmospheric. We loved being transported to the Serengeti plains without leaving the comfort of our sofa here at Wombat Towers.
Because there are so many ways to win, when you start adding in the Wilds with their 2x and 3x multipliers to the Free Spins bonus feature, what you could get (if you are lucky ) is a rampaging rhino win.
This makes the slot one worth playing.
