Raging Rhino Rampage slot review
Raging Rhino Rampage slot is WMS', or rather Scientific Gaming, cashing-in on the old orange beast which is a huge favourite among land-based casino players and of course online. The original 4096-way Raging Rhino slot became a great success online for WMS, then we had the Raging Rhino Megaways slot version which found stiffer competition. Playtech copied the formula too with Buffalo Blitz slot which was even more volatile! We keep the veldt scene in the background tribal music and the same selection animals and their accompanying sounds here too. So will this mighty beast end up rampaging through our bankroll too?
On The Reels...
As before with the original, we begin our play with 4096-ways over 6 reels of 4 rows. This however, my be only temporary as our first difference is that randomly on any spin 2 or more reels can expand up to 6 rows each for a 46,656-ways maximum. The symbols still appear single and stacked with the Rhino top pay at 7.5x bet for 6-of-a-kind. This ties in nicely with the second random modifier, Stampeding Reels, which means up to 2 reels can have extra stacks of Rhino added to them for that spin. We still get the Tree-Sunset Wilds singly on the centre 4 reels and of course the familiar Diamond scatter on all six. The Cheetah, Gorilla, Crocodile and Honey Badger pay from 5x down to 3.75x for 6OAK wins and we have the six card values of Ace down to 9 paying 3x down to 2.5x for a full way.
You can buy the free games on Raging Rhino Rampage slot for 75x bet or lower if you want to gamble for it, but this only applies to certain jurisdictions. Otherwise, 3 Diamonds award 5 Free Games, 4=8, 5=15 and finally all 6=20. Before you begin, you will need to spin the bonus wheel which can award 5 to 50 extra free spins, start the bonus or one of the 3 fixed jackpots above the reels. These are 25x your 40-coin bet, 250x or the top Major which is 2500x.
You can retrigger with just two Diamonds for 5 extra spins now and of course those Wilds landing on the centre 3 reels will offer up either a 2 or 3x multiplier when counting in wins. The expanding reels modifier can now extend the rows to 8 instead of 6 which means a potential maximum ways of 262,144 in this free spins bonus!
Raging Rhino Rampage slot has a decent 96.20% RTP which rises to 96.70% if you choose to play using the buy-ins. Expanding reels are a fad of late and don't really seem to enhance your chances of a big win in the base game, rather just increase win frequency. You would also believe that the Rampage feature gives more big 6OAK Rhino wins in the base game, but it doesn't. The free games seem harder to get extra spins in than before although the reels seem to expand more than in the base game and you do have 12,500x bet potential which is less than the Megaways version but over double that of the original Raging Rhino. So we are being sold higher potential here but in reality it will be very hard to achieve, so I am not sure I would rampage my way through the scrub to meet this rhino again...Review by Gamingslots
