Six Reels of Prehistoric Slot Action
Play’n Go has already announced their first release of the new year with Raging Rex. This game is set up to have a high hit-rate and a reasonable volatility while still packing in several valuable bonus features.
It’s built for action from the ground up as well, and it’s easy to see that with the six-by-four grid with 4,096 ways to get paid from left to right thanks to the all-ways format. This means that all regular symbols act as left-to-right scatters to make it really easy to get paid since you only need three of a kind combinations to win.
Stacked Wild Symbols and Rampage Re-spins
There’s a cool re-spin mode that’s set up by the wild t-rex symbol. The basic idea here is that the wild symbols can appear individually or in stacks that are up to four units high. If you get wilds covering an entire reel, then you’ll trigger the Rampage Re-spins bonus round.
Your wins are calculated normally for the given spin, but then the wilds will shift one reel to the left, and you’ll be given a re-spin of all of the non-wild reels for free. This process continues until you get your final re-spin with th wilds on the far-left reel.
Raging Free Spins Bonus Mode
The meteor falling to Earth is the scatter symbol, and it appears on all reels. Instead of giving you payouts, however, it’ll give you a shot at a free spins mode for three or more on any of the reels. Here are a few key points to know about this feature:
- You’ll get 8, 15, 20 or 30 free spins for three, four, five or six of the meteor symbols.
- An additional set of 5-20 free spins are added for just two or more of the scatter once the feature has already been started with no-limit to the number of re-triggers.
- One of the reels always has a stacked wild during this bonus mode, which can activate the re-spin feature.
- All wilds have a chance to give a multiplier, and that multiplier can stack to as high as 243x.
On top of all of this, players are given a 5x instant payout whenever they trigger this feature as an added bonus.
Pay Table Distribution
In a game like this, you’re going to get a lot of hits thanks to the all-ways format and having over 4,000 ways to get paid. As such, individual combinations might not seem like they’re worth that much, like the 7.5x and 6x wins for six of a kind for the four dinosaur symbols, which are the highest-level individual wins in the game.
However, this is a bit of an illusion since players will generally get several wins on the same spin. For example, if you get six of a kind, but you have two of that given symbol on one of the reels, then you actually get two different six of a kind wins instead of just one. That’s multiplied further as more matching symbols are shown on the screen.
What We Think
We’ve been given a chance to try out the Raging Rex video slot by Play’n Go, and we can definitely say that it’s a great way for them to start off the new year. You can find this game at any sites that use EveryMatrix or Microgaming Quickfire since Play’n Go has content distribution agreements with them, which means many of the most popular sites will have this title available when it’s released on January 10, 2019.
