Play’n GO’s roaring slot series has been turned into a trilogy as a plethora of prehistoric prizes are on offer in its latest slot release, Raging Rex 3.
Raging Rex 3 is a 6×4 reel slot with 4,096-ways and a maximum win of up to x30,000 the player’s wager.
Low value symbols come in the form of fossils, with colour variants of grey, blue, green, purple, orange and red. If the right number of winning combinations land on a single spin, these symbols can offer between x0.2 and x1.4 the player’s bet.
Moving up the paytable, dinosaurs depict the high value symbols, with a Parasaurolophus, triceratops, velociraptor and a Sphaerotholus. These symbols can offer between x0.8 and x6 the player’s bet, depending on the number of matching combinations that land on a single spin.
Dinosaur eye scatters can also appear, triggering one of three free spins options when three or more land on the same spin.
Finally, two wild symbols are available, with Rex, a stacked wild that covers full reels, and hatchling wilds that are 1×1-size. As wilds, these symbols substitute for all symbols other than the dinosaur eye scatters.
When Rex wilds appear, a free respin feature occurs in which Rex stays sticky on the board and move one reel to the left for a number of free spins. These free respins occur until Rex travels to the first reel and eventually off of the screen.
Any hatchling wilds that appear during these free respins will also stay sticky on the board, moving to reels that are either in front of or behind the moving Rex wild.
Landing three or more scatters on the same spin will award the choice of one out of three bonus game modes: feeding frenzy, hatchling mania or survival.
With the feeding frenzy game mode, landing three, four, five or six scatters will award seven, nine, 11 or 13 free spins respectively. Rex wilds appear on every spin for this feature, moving to different reels after each spin.
One dinosaur symbol is chosen to be the hunting target for this feature, and every time the Rex wild moves over or stops on one of these chosen symbols a multiplier on the Rex wild will increase by a value of one.
For the hatchling mania game mode, landing three, four, five or six scatters will award seven, nine, 11 or 13 free spins respectively. During these spins, hatchling wilds are sticky and move in any direction on each spin, bringing x2 or x3 win multipliers with them.
Both of these features can be retriggered, with two, three, four or five scatters awarding an additional two, three, four or five free spins respectively.
Lastly, in the survival game mode, players are given three spins on a new reel set where only dinosaur symbols can drop into play on 12 spaces that surround a giant T-Rex in the centre of the board.
Players are given three lives with each spin taking one away, although any dinosaur symbols that drop into play will reset the number of lives to three. T
The dinosaur symbols that land will be eaten by the T-Rex before leaving behind bone symbols. As they’re eaten, a multiplied bet amount prize will be collected by the T-Rex, which awards its full value once the three lives run out.
Each dinosaur that is eaten will also add to a bone meter above the reel set, which, when full, will cause all bone symbols to be removed from the board to make way for new dinosaur symbols. This will also upgrade the prize values offered by the dinosaur symbols.
To start with, the bone meter takes six bones to become filled, but every level after that will increase the bone meter by a value of one.
WHAT THEY SAY
Magnus Wallentin, Games Ambassador at Play’n GO, said: “We’re very much looking forward to seeing what players think about Raging Rex 3. Adding to this already popular series, Raging Rex 3 brings everything that players loved about the previous titles, while also adding some new thrilling features for players to sink their teeth into.
“For example, the hatchling mania bonus feature actually sees the Rex take a backseat as her brood practises their own hunting skills. Acting as individual moving wilds, smaller versions of their mother, these baby Rexes move from reel to reel creating the chance for more wins. They can even bring along a multiplier, too.”
