The mighty rhino has featured on countless popular video slot but not many know that it is actually an endangered species. Illegal poaching and hunting have brought them close to extinction. Save the Rhino International is one of the charities that is working towards conserving the iconic species in the wild. In an industry first, Pariplay entered into a partnership that will see 10% of all Pariplay profits from the Rumble Rhino slot being donated to the UK charity.
The Rumble Rhino slot will take you on a safari through the African savannah for an encounter with the majestic mammal as well as stealthy cheetahs, towering giraffes and grim-looking gorillas. Mystery and 4×4 mega symbols plus a vast choice of bonus rounds and with free spins and multiplier extras will make it worthwhile reel expedition.
Rumble Rhino is a video slot with 6 reels in a 3-4-4-4-4-3 format with 100 fixed pay lines in the base game with wins being awarded for adjacent symbols from left to right. In the free spins round, the number of lines is reduced to just 40, which is rather strange but actually works out well. The safari on mobile or desktop will cost you 1.00 to 50 credits per spin. The RTP of this medium variance game is set at a slightly lower than usual 95.52%.
Graphics and Visuals
Open the game to find yourself in the midst of a breathtaking savannah scene at dusk when nature is filled with fire-like colours. The raw beauty of the graphics is simply stunning. Add to that the gracious appearances of various savannah animals on the reels and you have one majestic looking slot. A tribal bongo soundtrack with the sounds of the jungle is completing a marvel in slot design.
As to be expected, you will find a range of wild animals on the reels hat you typically encounter on a typical safari. However, at the low end are the usual card royals from J through to A, ornamented with tribal patterns. They are followed by snakes, birds, giraffes, zebras, cheetahs and gorillas. The mighty rhino is the wild symbol, substituting for all other pay symbols bar scatters. Hit six of a kind on a line to win between 0.6x and 5x your stake.
The scatter symbols are intricate tiles with the word ‘bonus’ across them, appearing on reels one and six only, while a tribal mask acts as the mystery symbol.
Mega Wins with 4×4 Mega Symbols
Rumble Rhino is a feature rich slot that will have you in suspense at all time. For starters, the high-value, the wild rhino and the mystery symbols can appear on any spin as 4×4 mega blocks on reels two to five to provide a better chance at hitting multi-line wins.
The Mystery Mask Feature
The second most common feature you will encounter on your reel safari are mystery masks. They can appear on any spin and all landing in view will turn into a common pay symbol, and that includes the wild rhino.
The Rumble Rhino Bonus Game
The feature frenzy continues with a diamond bonus game. You can trigger it by hitting a bonus symbol anywhere on reels one and six in one spin. The game will then lead you to a second screen with a grid of 24 diamonds. Pick one by one until you collect three matching icons with a bonus feature.
- Cash Prize of 15x your bet, obviously the least desirable option
- 50 Free Spins with a multiplier that increases by x1 when bonus symbols land on reels one and six
- 20 Free Spins with a fixed x2 win multiplier
- 15 Free Spins with a fixed x3 win multiplier
- 10 Free Spins with a fixed x5 win multiplier
- 7 Rumble Spins with sticky wilds and a multiplier that increases by x1 for every bonus symbol landing on reels one and six, plus any mystery symbol will add one extra free spin.
None of the standard free spins can be retriggered. All rounds are played on the first 40 lines of the standard paytable only, which is a rather strange setting but we thought it worked quite well after a testing a few features.
First, we have to commend Pariplay on giving up 10% of their profits to donate them to the rhino charity. Conserving the species is absolutely tantamount to keep a large diversity of animals in the African savannah.
The game itself is well-designed, very entertaining and has some good win potential in the bonus features. We thought the option with 7 free spins and sticky wilds had the biggest potential. You can show your support for the Save the Rhino International organization by playing the Rumble Rhino slot at any of your favourite gaming hangouts.
