With the current trend at Ainsworth, not to mention Aristocrat and other leading developers, being to package together several different games that are pretty much identical, it is always nice to come across a standalone title that is unique in its excitement. Rampaging Rhino is just such a game and it is safe to say that you won’t have played anything quite like this before. Admittedly, the game is part of the Premium Plus range of pokies although this goes for almost all of the most recent releases from the developer and indicates the sheer quality of the graphics and gameplay rather than specifics. It’s a great game and while you won’t find an online version any time soon, it is definitely worth a few spins next time you’re in the casino. Check out all of the details below!
The Pokie Style
Ainsworth has made a concerted effort to ensure that their poker machines are some of the most eye-catching currently available in land based casinos and Rampaging Rhino fits the bill nicely. The star of the show is the of course the rhino itself and you won’t miss him even if you’re on the opposite side of the casino floor! Also of note when you get a little closer is the unique layout of the reels. Five continue to be the order of the day, but they have been modified to resemble the likes of IGT’s Siberian Storm pokie which you may well see alongside this one. It allows for some unique winning combinations and goes a long way to making this game stand out in the crowd.
Rampaging Rhino offers only 1c denominations, but when you see quite how many win lines are available, it will soon become clear why. The game can be played across both fifty and hundred win line configurations and the unique reel layout mentioned above means that the latter effectively makes for an all pay machine. Essentially, all adjacent symbols will pay out regardless of conventional win line structure and players will be used to this from the likes of the Reel Power range from Aristocrat, featuring such top notch titles as Choy Sun Doa and Pompeii. The wins keep on coming in the base game, but that is only the tip of the iceberg compared to the bonuses on offer!
Features and Bonuses
The first bonus feature that will catch your eye, even before playing the game, is the progressive jackpot. It is split into two tiers, the major and minor prizes, and these are contributed to by all of the players enjoying a few spins on Rampaging Rhino at the same time. It’s a mystery jackpot, meaning that it could hit at any time, so it’s best to play as normal and rack up the wins, with any additional prizes coming along as something of a bonus.
The Rhino Mania feature round is a sight to behold too, and all kicks off with the award of eight free games for three or more scatter symbols in view. A bonus reel is added to the standard board, which incorporates an additional multiplier on any prizes won in the round. When the Rhino Mania symbol activates above a reel, it drops wilds onto all symbol areas on the relevant reel, at which point it will lock them in place, meaning that the reel continues to be wild for the entire duration of the round and all remaining spins.
