Raging Rex 3 is our slot of the month for September (bit late, apologies). Created by Play ‘n GO, the third instalment in the series comprises six reels, 4 rows and 4096 ways to win. As well as top-draw presentation, Raging Rex offers players an assortment of engaging features included stacked wilds that reward re-spins, a trio of bonus games, free spins with sticky wilds and a potential top payout of up to 30,000x your stake.
As mentioned, the presentation here is excellent although it doesn’t really deviate a whole lot from the previous two games. Clearly taking inspiration from the Jurassic Park movie franchise, Raging Rex 3 is set against a dense jungle and uses clear fossil stones (like the movie) as low-value symbols, which of course is a very welcome alternative to playing card iconography. Play is accompanied by the occasional roar of dinosaurs which is rather well-done.
How to Play Raging Rex
The base game features a pay anyway mechanic and is played across a 6 x 4 grid. To win, you’ll need to land at least three matching symbols. Joining the low value fossils are four dinosaurs. The parasaurolophus and triceratops pay 0.8x, 1.5x, 3x and 4x your stake, if you land then 3, 4, 5 or 6 times respectively. For the Dilophosaurus and Velociraptor its 1x, 2x, 4x and 6x.
A T-Rex serves as the wild as well as its hatchlings, appearing on the second, third, fourth, fifth and sixth reels. They substitute all other symbols to hopefully create winning pay-lines. The hatchlings appear as 1 x 1 wilds while the T-Rex is super-stacked, covering one entire reel.
When you land it, you’ll get a re-spin and the T-Rex will move one place to the left. The hatchlings also remain in place during any T-Rex re-spins.
Free Spins Rounds
Raging Rex 3 boasts three free spin rounds: Feeding Frenzy, Hatchling Mania and Survival. All three are activated by landing three or more scatters. Here’s more information:
These free spins are triggered by landing three, four, five or six scatters. You’ll then get seven, nine, eleven or thirteen free spins respectively. For the round, a target is chosen for one of the four dinosaurs.
During the round, the T-Rex remains in the game area moving after each spin. If it lands within a target, it’s consumed and a point is added to a meter. This boosts a multiplier by one for every six points collected. You’ll also receive two, three, four or five spins when two, three, four or five scatters hit with the free spins.
This is triggered by the same number of scatter symbols as Feeding Frenzy and the same number of free spins is on offer too. Although Rex isn’t present here, the hatchlings are and remain sticky with random multipliers attached.
They too will move across the game are randomly. If you manage to land more than one hatchling as part of a winning combo, their multipliers are multiplied together. Scatters are also in play here awarding up to 5 extra spins.
This is more a re-spins bonus. You start with three lives with play taking place on a 4 x 4 game area with a T-Rex occupying a 2 x 2 area. Only blanks and dinosaurs are in play with the latter including attached multipliers of up to 10.
When one lands, it’s consumed by the T Rex and the value gets added to the T-Rex multiplier. Sticky bonus symbols are left on the reels which are sticky. These bonus add one point to a meter – when the meter is filled all of the bone symbols are removed and the dinosaur multipliers are boosted. Like the Feeding Frenzy, you’ll need six points to fill the meter.
The game looks great, despite similarities to the previous two games. And despite Raging Rex being the third in the series, it’s clear that plenty of imagination and effort has gone into the free spin rounds. The Survival round takes the game in a slightly different direction than its predecessors and is a welcome addition to what amounts to an engaging online slot.
