Take in a wild safari or put on your dancing shoes in this week’s latest pair of video slot releases – Raging Rhino MegaWays and Village People Macho Moves.
Raging Rhino MegaWays – WMS
You might recognise the name Raging Rhino from a previous video slot. This version has taken that original and given it the MegaWays treatment. Created by WMS, it’s a 6 reel, symbol drop game where the number of symbols on each reel changes with each spin. So does the number of potential ways to win. If all 6 reels reach their maximum height, you’ll have 117,649 ways to create a winner.
On the reels you’ll see a collection of wild animal symbols. Create a winner and those symbols are removed and new ones drop in and replace them. These drops keep on coming as long as a new winner hits. This is called the Cascading Reels feature.
The highlight here is the Free Spins feature that awards 8 free spins. Each symbol drop win during this feature increases a multiplier by 1x. This doesn’t reset to 1x after a winless drop either, it only goes higher. Also boosting your chances in the feature are multiplier wilds which can appear on the middle 3 reels and sent payouts rocketing by 2x, 3x or 5x. Unlimited retriggers are possible too.
It’s not the most visually stunning video slot you’ll see. The gameplay makes Raging Rhino MegaWays worth a spin, especially if you like this game mechanic. You can also win 10,000 times your bet on every free spin!
Village People Macho Moves – Microgaming
For something a little more flamboyant look no further than Village People Macho Moves. Based on the 1970s disco kings, it’s a 6 reel, 15 payline video slot from Microgaming that’s jam packed with extras. The design here is as flashy as you’d expect from a Village People offering. You’ll see platform shoes, sunglasses, records, tapes and microphones spinning around the reels as well as 2 wilds.
Joining the standard glitter ball wild is the VP wild which fills the whole reel whenever it hits. Each VP wild also fills a position on that reel’s meter. Once a meter is full, you’ll trigger 5 free spins plus a modifier extra:
- Construction Worker’s Macho Move feature – a multiplier of between 2x and 20x is in play.
- Cowboy’s Macho Move feature – between 2 and 12 wilds are added on each free spin.
- Cop’s Macho Move feature – between 2 and 4 reels are filled with wilds on each free spin.
- Native’s Macho Move feature – on your first free spin, reels 5 and 6 are filled with wilds. These stacked wilds then shift 1 reel to the left on each free spin.
- Biker’s Macho Move feature – symbol upgrades can turn lower value symbols into higher ones.
- Sailor’s Macho Move feature – 1, 2 or 3 sticky wilds are added on each free spin.
We didn’t have high hopes for a this video slot but Village People Macho Moves is much better than we expected. The glitzy design is well done and the medley of disco hits playing in the background will either have you tapping your toes and singing along or reaching for the mute button.
The range of extras impresses too with the modifiers really spicing up the free spins – you can also win 6,330 times your bet! There are more obvious candidates for a music-themed video slots but Microgaming looks like it will have a hit on their hands with Village People Macho Moves.
