The Wombat says: Just when you thought you’d seen every possible variation of African themed slot, along comes this little number from Lightning Box Games.
Let’s take to the dusty plains Wombat Fans and see if we can’t grab some rhino-sized wins!
This game is easy on the eye- we’d put it in the eye candy category along with the Flame slot and Asgardian Stones.
Look and Feel
Respin Rhino slot has a backdrop of the African savannah with the sun setting or rising (we’re not sure which!) and some imposing mountains in the sun baked distance. The icons are nicely illustrated, and the soundtrack to the spinning reels is also African; full of tribal drums, chanting and birds a-tweeting. Weirdly enough, the logo is graffiti-esque in style which makes no sense whatsoever..
Having said that, we do like a Rhino, what with the Jumanji slot and Raging Rhino being some of our favourite games, so we were eager to get our paws on this baby.
Respin Rhino Slot Game Play
Respin Rhino Slot from Lightning Box Games is a 5-reel, 3 row, 40 payline game. Bets start at 0.40 per spin go up to a maximum 200.00 which means this slot is suitable for players of all budgets.
You’ll find a whole host of African-themed symbols on the reels, including elephants, monkeys, rhinos, birds as your high value symbols, while the standard 9, 10, J, Q & K playing cards make up the lower value symbols in the game.
The wild symbol in Respin Rhino slot is the (rather stereotypical) African Queen, and she will land on reels 2 and 4 only. She will do the usual job of substituting for all other symbols on the reels to give you extra winning combos. And when she does land, she will land stacked over the whole reel.
Free Spins and Bonus Features
Sadly, you won’t find a Free Spins feature in Respins Rhino slot, but fear not Wombat Fans as there is a cool bonus on offer for you to get your furry paws on. There aren’t as many features on this game as others like the Magic Ian slot (but then that trumps most games), but we think you’ll enjoy the features it does have.
You’ll see that of the some symbols have a gold background to them. Land matching symbols (with the gold background) on the 1st and 5th reel, and gold background and you’ll be awarded with 3 respins and your original icons replaced with golden rhinos.
And there’s more! Whenever a Wild icon lands on the reels it will become sticky – which means even more wins! Oh, and the respins can be triggered too during the round.
As far as the theme goes, this isn’t our favourite ( that prize goes to Raging Rhino slot). But the game has some decent payouts and this wombat managed to consistently land some nice wins. Rhino Respins slot feels a little outdated, and would deffo benefit from a Free Spins feature to up the RTP. Still the game is oddly soothing, so give it a go.
