Embark on a journey back in time when the Tyrannosaurus Rex was dominating the vast plains of the American West, what was then an island continent known as Laramidia. The Cretaceous Period ended some 66 million years ago when a so-called extinction event wiped out three-quarters of all living things on the planet, most probably caused by a massive meteor hit.
Play’n GO is bringing the mighty T-Rex onto a set of slot reels with wild substitutions, Rampage Respins, Raging Free Spins, multipliers, and a win potential in a single spin of up to 5,000 times your stake.
Raging Rex is a video slot with six reels, four rows and 4,096 ways to win. An encounter with the dinosaur on mobile or desktop will cost you 0.20 to 100 credits. Pays for a single six of a kind range from 2x to 7.5x your stake. The RTP of this high variance game is set at 96.34%, which will help to avoid being trampled over by the raging rex.
Graphics and Visuals
As to be expected, a forest with giant trees and plants as well as a waterfall form the backdrop to the semi-translucent game window, which is populated by fossilized insects and dinosaurs. Dragon-flies are seen flying past while a serene soundtrack is dramatically interrupted when meteor scatters or Rex wilds land on the reels.
The creative team at Play’n GO has made quite an effort to reflect the Cretaceous era on the reels. The pay symbols at the low end are six fossilized insects and animals – a mosquito, a spider, a beetle, a scorpion, a dragon-fly and a lizard. They are followed by four dinosaurs – Velociraptor, Dilophosaurus, Triceratops, and Parasaurolophus. The T-Rex himself is the wild symbol, substituting for all symbols except scatters. Those are a meteor, recalling the near-extinction event.
Random Rampage Respins
The T-Rex wild can appear in full glory as an expanded Raging Rex wild symbol on reels two to six in the base game, triggering the Rampage Respins. One to five respins are awarded, based on which reel the Raging Rex symbol landed. For example, one respin when he lands on reel two and five when he lands on reel six. Only one Raging Rex wild can be in view at any time.
The Raging Rex wild will move by one reel on every respin until it disappears on the left. Potential wins are awarded on every respin and paid accumulatively once the sequence has concluded.
Raging Spins Bonus Features
Hitting three, four, five or six meteor scatters anywhere on the reels will trigger 8, 15, 20, and 30 free spins. Landing two to five scatters during the round will award an extra 5 to 20 free spins, no limits. Players will have now two choices for their free spins feature:
- Wild Hunt: Random x2 and x3 multipliers are added to the T-Rex wild symbol, that are multiplied by each other when more than one land on a free spin. The maximum win multiplier can reach an insane x243. However, the stacked Raging Rex wild is removed for the duration of the feature
- Primal Rage: One Raging Rex wild symbol is added on a random reel except reel one. He will stay on the screen for the duration of the feature and will move to a random reel on every free spin.
Raging Rex is yet another stunning slot creation from Play’n GO, although some veterans might see similarities to the popular Raging Rhino slot from WMS. However, Play’n GO gave it their own twist with the additional random feature and the two types of free spins. Wild Hunt is clearly the more volatile choice, while Primal Rage has lower win potential but is the safer option.
