Raging Rhino is a game that doesn’t need much of an introduction. It’s definitely among The Slot Buzz team’s top five all-time favourites.
WMS hasn’t gone overboard here and fans of the original slot will be glad to find that the MegawaysTM edition of Raging Rhino features the very same visual setting of African savannah lands as the predecessor.
It was the first game to exploit the 4,096 ways to win game feature, and its viciously high volatility means it holds back for extended periods of time before launching some of its most incredible win sequences ever seen in a video game.
The Ace through 9 are the lesser value symbols on the reels, while the badger, crocodile, cheetah, gorilla, and rhino are the higher price symbols. With a payout of 25x for six on a payline, this is the highest paying symbol.
A setting sun is the wild emblem in Raging Rhino that has always held a lot of weight. Keep an eye out for it because it can replace all other symbols except the scatter, which is the diamond.
Raging Rhino is a MegawaysTM game that works similarly to Bonanza, in that it has six reels that grow from two to seven rows high, giving you a total of 117,649 ways to win. Also in effect is the cascading wins feature. That is to say, after any successful spin, the winning symbols are eliminated and replaced with new ones. The procedure repeats itself if more winning lines are formed.
The main enjoyment, as with the original, is reserved for the free spins round. To earn eight spins, you must land four diamond scatters. Your multiplier value grows by 1x after each successful cascade, just like in Bonanza. This can be multiplied an infinite amount of times. It is also possible to re-trigger the free spins by landing three more scatters during the game – this will award you with an additional eight spins.
Not only that, but WMS has retained the infamous Raging Rhino Wild Multiplier feature in the game. It was the multiplier which was responsible for all of the huge wins in the original. It pertains to wilds that appear on reels 2 through 5, and the multiplier ranges from 2x to 5x. This indicates that a winning combination of Wild Multipliers and Cascading Win Multipliers can result in massive payouts in surplus of $10,000.
Each spin can feature up to 117,649 different chances to win, known as Megaways. Payouts are won when matching symbols appear on neighbouring reels in any position. 2-7 symbols can appear on reels 1 and 6, while 2-6 symbols can appear on reels 2-5. The RTP for this game is 96.18 percent.
It might not be a smart option to fix what isn’t broken, but in the case of Raging Rhino, there’s no reason to suspect that WMS made the correct call by affixing their iconic slot to the MegawaysTM game engine. This is a fabulous update to one of the all-time classic slots. Just keep in mind that you’re dealing with high variance, and the wins will be few and far between.
