Landing a stampede of coins is the goal in Raging Rhino MegaWays, a 6-reel, symbol drop video slot from WMS. This suped up version of the original Raging Rhino game comes with a bonus round that offers multiplier wilds of up to 5x as well as an expanding multiplier that increases with each symbol drop win. Play on your PC, tablet or mobile from between 20p and £20 per spin.
The MegaWays game engine means that the number of symbols on each reel changes with each spin. The more symbols on each reel, the larger the number of ways to win. If all 6 reels reach their maximum height, then the MegaWays reach an enormous 117,649.
This isn’t the flashiest looking MegaWays video slot you’ll see as its almost identical to the original (not a bad thing mind). Joining the lower value A to 9 royals on the reels are a badger, crocodile, cheetah and gorilla. The Rhino is the most lucrative. Land 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6 in combination for a payout of 1, 3, 5, 10 or 25 times your bet.
After a winner is created, the successful symbols are blasted away and new ones drop in and replace them. These symbol cascades continue as long as a new winner hits. This is called the Cascading Reels feature.
Raging Rhino MegaWays comes with a Free Spins feature – this is triggered by landing 4 or more of the Bonus symbol anywhere on the reels on the same spin. With 8 free spins awarded, the multiplier increases by 1 every time you land a cascade win.
The multiplier doesn’t reset back to 1x following a winless spin either as it can only go up. Also in play during the feature are special multiplier wilds which can appear on the top row of the middle 4 reels. These can boost payouts by 2x, 3x or 5x. The special wilds can also combine with the standard multiplier for even bigger action.
Landing 3 Bonus symbols results in a re-trigger with another 8 free spins added to your tally – with no limits either. There’s a Bonus Guarantee feature where you are guaranteed to win at least 10 times your bet when you trigger the Free Spins feature.
If you’ve played any MegaWays video slot, you’ll have a pretty good idea of what to expect with Raging Rhino MegaWays. We’ve seen better looking games than this and the range of extras isn’t massive. What makes this game appealing is the fact the original was and is so popular.
The Free Spins feature can be a cracker though, especially if you get on a run with the expanding multiplier. The MegaWays version is also high variance with potential wins of 10,000 times your bet on every free spin. I also suggest you try NextGen Gaming’s Cash Stampede which is pretty good and has a similar theme.
