Head out on safari in Respin Rhino, a 5 reel, 40 payline slot from Lightning Box Games. The highlight of this African adventure are the expanding wilds and respins where top value rhino symbols lock in place to fill the whole of reels 1 and 5. Play, on all devices, from between 40p and £200 per spin.

Set against the grassy African plains, the reels here include lower value A to 9 symbols alongside higher value wild animals. You’ll see elephants and birds of prey which award up to 75 coins per payline as well as monkeys and tigers which award up to 100 coins.

The top payer is the rhino – land 3, 4 or 5 of these on the same spin and you’ll win 30, 60 or 105 coins. The village woman is the game’s wild – she appears on reels 2 and 4 only and replaces all other symbols. When the wild hits, it expands to turn the whole of the reel wild.

You’ll see that gold-backed symbols spin on reels 1 and 5. Fill those 2 reels with the same gold-backed symbol and you’ll trigger the Rhino Respin feature – the stacked symbols on reels 1 and 5 will be transformed into the same top paying rhino. They will be locked in place throughout your 3 respins. If a wild lands, it fill the whole reel and the respins are reset to 3. In total, there’s up to 9 respins to be had.

That’s it as far as gameplay is concerned. The re-spins can deliver some very decent action though, especially if you manage to land a stacked wild during your respins. This isn’t the best designed slot you’ll see. The cartoon imagery is solid rather than spectacular. We still don’t know why developers put tigers into the African savannah when they’re native to Asia. That’s just us being pedants! The bouncing soundtrack is rather good though.

We found the bonus feature quite tricky to trigger. It offered some very decent action on the occasions we did hit it though. If you like slots with plenty of features then Respin Rhino won’t be making your must play list. If you want simple, safari-themed action then this basic game delivers just that.

Saying that, it is highly volatile with maximum payouts of 4,200 times your stake on every spin/respin! If you like rhinos, you cannot go wrong with the high variance Raging Rhino from WMS which is both a land based and online classic.
