WMS’ Raging Rhino MegaWays Slot Review

WMS’ classic Raging Rhino gets the MegaWays treatment and comes with 6 reels and up to 117,649 ways to win. Set in the African grasslands, you’ll benefit from cascading wins meaning you can win again and again from each spin as long as you get winning combinations. The Free Spins feature can give you unlimited free spins as well as wilds with multipliers up to 5x and increasing multipliers for each cascade. High variance at it’s best!

Raging Rhino MegaWays is powered by WMS and uses the popular game engine from Big Time Gaming. Raging Rhino is a popular land-based an online slot and become a cult favourite – now with the MegaWays engine, things are bigger and better. With 6 reels and up to 117,649 ways to win, you can play on desktop, mobile and tablet devices from 20p to £20 per spin.

Visually, Raging Rhino MegaWays is almost identical to the original – set in the African savannah, symbols on the reels include A, K, Q, J, 10 and 9 royals (low value symbols) as well as badgers, crocodiles, cheetahs, gorillas and, of course, rhinos. The latter is the most rewarding – 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6 in combination will give you 1, 3, 5, 10 or 25 times your stake.

The sunset symbol is the wild and substitutes for all symbols bar the bonus scatter. In the base game, the wild only appears on the top row (above the main reel set). Being a MegaWays slot, each spin can have up to 117,649 ways to win – randomly.

The number of symbols per reel varies (between 2 and 7) with each spin and wins are formed by getting matching symbols from left to right (starting from reel 1). The more symbols per reel, the higher the number of ways to win. You’ll also notice a top reel which has 4 rows and spins horizontally – it acts as an extra row for reels 2, 3, 4 and 5.

Raging Rhino MegaWays benefits from a Cascading Reels feature – when you form 1 or more winning combinations, the contributing symbols explode with symbols on the reels vacating the empty spaces. New symbols the appear to fill the newly vacated spaces. The cascades continue as long as you get winning combinations. This allows you to win time and time again from each spin/cascade.

There’s also a Free Spins feature – this is played when you get 4 or more diamond bonus scatters anywhere on the reels. You begin with 8 free spins but 3 or more scatters on a free spin will reward you with an additional 8 free spins. With each win/cascade, the multiplier increases by 1 – there are no limits to how high this can go. Furthermore, you can retrigger unlimited free spins too.

Now, and more importantly, the sunset wild symbol can appear on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 as well as the top row. The wild can contain multipliers of 2x, 3x or 5x which really boost your winning potential. Any winning combinations which involves the wild symbol will be subject to the wild multiplier and win multiplier.

If the Free Spins feature doesn’t give you spectacular results, there’s a Bonus Guarantee feature that kicks in – if you win less than 10 times your total stake, your win amount will be topped up to be 10 times your stake. It’s a little something.

The reason why we mention the Bonus Guarantee feature is because Raging Rhino MegaWays is a highly volatile slot – it can reward you with wins of up to 12,500 times your stake on each free spin but you must tread the African savannah carefully as it could easily swallow your bankroll.

The original Raging Rhino slot has been and continues to be very popular – the MegaWays engine has taken it to a whole different level. For this reason, I believe Raging Rhino MegaWays will be just as popular, if not more so.
