Play’n GO, a leading Swedish-based iGaming supplier, has officially launched Raging Rex 3, the sequel to the original hit, Raging Rex, a dinosaur-themed slot that once again features the already widely-known angry reptile.
The new video slot joins a pair of recently released trademarked installments to player-favorite franchises. the aforementioned Raging Rex, Raging Rex 2, Sweet Alchemy, Sweet Alchemy 2, Sweet Alchemy 100 and Book of Dead series.
Aligning with its name, the main theme of the slot is the already mentioned Raging Rex, a large tyrannosaurus rex, which is on the hunt. In the background of the reels, players may see the rich nature characteristic of the Cretaceous period reminiscent of the lushness seen in the Avatar films. Additionally, the mystical music compliments the overall atmosphere of the game.
To win, players must form a winning combination of 3 or more matching symbols on adjacent reels beginning from the first reel on the left on a dynamic 6×4 grid that offers 4096 paylines. Furthermore, the game may be played on any device, has a medium volatility, a default RTP of 96.20% and a maximum win of 30,000x a player’s bet.
As for the symbols, there are the low-value ones such as orange, white, green, red, purple and blue fossils, while the high-value bonus symbols are dinosaurs with green, blue, white and purple frames. A combination of 6 low-value symbols is worth 1x to 1,4x, increasing to 4x to 6x a player’s bet for a combination of 6 high-value bonus symbols. However, there are also Wilds, which are 1×3 Rex and 1×1 Hatchling symbols, and a combination of 6 of them is worth 6x a player’s bet.
Wild Symbols – the main task of the Wilds is to replace any other paying symbol, except the Scatter, and thus help players create more winning combinations.
Re-Spins – throughout players’ spins, the Rex symbol may appear on reels 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6. However, if it appears in full sight, this feature is activated. Once activated, players will get respins that will last as long as Rex stays on the screen and will move one step to the left with every additional spin.
Players can receive a maximum of 5 respins and the final spin will happen when Rex come to reel 1. As for the hatchlings, they are sticky during the feature and will walk in front of and behind the Rex.
Free Spins – if players manage to land 3 or more Scatters, this feature is triggered. As soon as it’s triggered, players will have the option to select from 3 bonus game options such as Hatchling Mania, Feeding Frenzy and Survival. Additionally, the number of free spins received during the feature is entirely dependent on the number of Scatters with which the feature is triggered and one of the aforementioned bonus games is selected.
Hatchling Mania – once chosen, this option welcomes players with 7, 9, 11 or 13 free spins, which of course depends on the number of Scatters (3 to 6), players used when activating. Additional free spins are available if they land 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6 Scatters which award 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5 additional free spins, individually.
During the feature, the aforementioned Rex symbol won’t appear, but instead, any hatchling that appears will become sticky. Hatchlings like these remain in place throughout the entire feature and may move around throughout spins. They may also appear with multipliers of 2x and 3x, where the multipliers will multiply each other if few are involved in the same win, prior to being applied to the win.
Feeding Frenzy – once chosen, this option welcomes players with 7, 9, 11 or 13 free spins which of course depends on the number of Scatters (3 to 6) players use when activating. Additional free spins are available if they land 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6 Scatters which award 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5 additional free spins, individually.
At the beginning of the feature, the hunting target will be randomly chosen from 4 non-identical paying dinosaur symbols. Players will receive a Rex put on the reels, which remains sticky throughout the entire feature and may move in either direction. Every time Rex stops or passes by a hunting target symbol, it will be accumulated. Additionally, the said symbol begins with a multiplier of 1x, and each time 6 hunting targets are accumulated, the multiplier grows by 1x and may grow without limit.
Survival – once chosen, this option welcomes players with 3 respins and a 4×4 reel setup. In the middle of this grid a 2×2 Rex symbol will be put. Then players are introduced to spins that may display leaves or dinosaurs and if they hit 1 or more dinosaurs, the dinosaurs will be devoured, and the respins will reset to 3 again.
Moreover, when a dinosaur is devoured, it will convert into a bone symbol, and each such symbol is generated per meter on top of the reels. As for this gauge, it begins at 6 and will grow by 1 ever time it fills up. Once filled, every bone symbol is removed from the reels, allowing the dinosaur symbols to upgrade to a value identical to their initial values. Dinosaur initial values are 1x, 2x, 5x and 10x.
One more thing, if players choose to trigger the feature with over 3 Scatters, 1 symbol upgrade will be rewarded per additional Scatter. Also, if they hit 3, 4, 5 or 6 Scatters, players receive 0x, 1x, 2x and 3x, individually, in the original symbol upgrade, and the respins reset to 3 again.
Commenting on the launch, Magnus Wallentin, Gaming Ambassador at Play’n GO, commented: “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 practices 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!”
