If you’re not familiar with 4,096 ways to win slots then this could be a great place to start. This format, first introduced by WMS in 2014 with the Raging Rhino, has been copied many times over by studios like Thunderkick, with the brilliant Pink Elephants, and Playtech, with their version called Buffalo Blitz. These are always high variance games, typically involve a wild animal of some sort, and will frustrate you for long periods before delivering massive wins driven by multipliers and symbol stacks. Check out some of the best big win videos on You Tube to witness it for real.
Gameplay, Symbols and Pay Tables
Raging Rex is set in a prehistoric forest and the Jurassic backdrop is superbly drawn. The reels are six wide by four rows deep. The low value symbols are amber-trapped fossils in silver, orange, yellow, red, purple and green. The premium symbols are various dinosaurs, including the highest paying Velociraptor, delivering 7.5x for five on a payline.
The T-Rex himself is a wild, substituting for all others bar the scatter and appearing in stacks on the reels.
There is also a meteor scatter symbol which is needed to trigger the all important free spins round.
Raging Rex Features
The Rampage feature in Raging Rex comes into play when a full wild stack of T-Rex’s appears anywhere between reels 2 to 6. The stack is sticky so stays on the reels as you benefit from consecutive re-spins. Before each spin the stack moves one reel to the left until it drops off the end. So, if you start with the stack on reel 6, then you have 6 re-spins with a sticky reel stack on each.
Land 3 or more meteor scatters and you will set up the free spins round as follows:
- 3 meteors: 8 free spins
- 2 meteors: 15 free spins
- 5 meteors: 20 free spins
- 6 meteors: 30 free spins
It is also possible to trigger more free spins (unlimited) during the bonus round as follows:
- 2 meteors: 5 extra spins
- 3 meteors: 8 extra spins
- 4 meteors: 15 extra spins
- 5+ meteors: 20 extra spins
There are two modes in the free spins round for you to choose from, as follows:
Primal Rage: A Raging Rex wild stack will appear on one reel on EVERY spin.
Wild Hunt: Wild stacks are removed from the reels, but other instances of Rex wilds come with 2x and 3x multipliers. These can combine on winning lines to create multipliers of up to 243x.
The Slot Buzz Verdict
Raging Rex is an excellent new high variance game from Play n Go with superb features and a great look and feel. If you like testing your nerve on games with good potential then this is a great place to kick off your spins in 2019. The stacked wilds keep things warm in the base game whilst the best bits are saved for the bonus round – we recommend choosing the Wild Hunt option if you get there – those multipliers can give you serious wins in combination. Good luck!
