Conservationists have been lamenting the plight of the rhino for decades. Charities such as the WWF have been working hard to preserve the species, which has now been brought back from the brink of extinction. In the Raging Rhino Slot Game Scientific Games celebrates the majesty and power of the Rhino in this six reel, four row online outing that boasts an incredible 4,096 Ways to Win.
Are the rhinos in this slot’s title raging against poachers? If so it is with good reason. The rhino roar that greets us when we fire up this slot would be enough to make me want to drive speedily away in a 4×4 if I were to hear it first-hand. It is just one piece of excellent all-round game design from Scientific Gaming. Thundering drums accompany our spins to evoke a charging rhino herd and sumptuous artwork showcases these beasts in all their splendour.
The Rhino is joined as a high-paying symbol by other superbly-drawn beasts of the African savannahs and jungles. A Gorilla, Cheetah, Crocodile and Porcupine need but two matches across the 4,096 Ways system to earn us a payout, while the lower-paying 9s through Aces require three or more symbols to win. Landing a series of Rhinos in a winning combo unleashes a shout of “Rhino!” – presumably from the poachers or preservers – and sees the Rhino’s charge into a thunderous animation. If this were a 3D slot, we’d be shrinking back from the screen. The Sunset Savannah substitutes for all symbols as Raging Rhino’s Wild symbol, appearing on reels 2-5 only.
Diamonds are a major export for some African countries, and it is these glistening jewels that trigger the Raging Rhino Free Spins feature. Let’s hope they aren’t blood diamonds. Because of our enlarged reel case, we can land 3-6 Diamond Scatters which will launch between 8-50 free spins. While eight might sound like a backhand from a baboon, landing any further Scatters awards additional free spins throughout the free spins round, this time between 5-50 extra spins. On top of those additional delights, landing Sunset Wilds in winning combos will award either a x2 or x3 multiplier.
In Raging Rhino Scientific Games has unleashed a rip-roaring, rampaging release that delivers epic online slots action. The studio has done well to celebrate the power and majesty of these incredible beasts – as well as some of the other animals across Africa. Wildlife lovers will be blown away, as will bonus game fans when we land the bountiful Free Spins feature.
