Raging Rex is a dinosaur-themed slot game from Play’N Go which was released in early 2019. Considering the popularity of dinosaur movies like Jurassic World, it’s almost surprising that there aren’t more dinosaur slots on the market. If the idea of spinning reels packed with neatly designed dinosaurs and jewels appeals to you, then Raging Rex might be worth a try. The game features the 4096 ways to win mechanic, which means more winning opportunities, but in spite of this it can often take a long time for winning combos to show up in this high variance slot.
In Raging Rex, players spin reels of dinosaurs and small insects trapped in amber against a backdrop of jungle. As far as slot games go, it’s got a pleasant, relaxing feel to it and it’s easy to imagine whiling away an evening playing Raging Rex at home. The game features a 4×6 grid of reels, with amber insects denoting the lower value symbols and dinosaurs in place as the higher value symbols. The highest value standard symbol is the Velociraptor, while the T-Rex symbol serves as the game’s wild. There’s also a meteor scatter symbol, three of which will trigger Raging Rex’s bonus round.
If you land three or more meteor scatter symbols on the reels then you’ll trigger the game’s re-spins round, Raging Respins. Players will be awarded eight free re-spins for three meteors, with up to 30 re-spins available if you manage six meteors on the reels at once. You can also win more re-spins for hitting further scatters during your Raging Spins round. This round is definitely where a lot of the money is in Raging Rex, so keep an eye out for it. There’s also another bonus feature which comes into play when you land a full stack of wild T Rex symbols on one reel; this actually happens semi-regularly, and when it does the wilds will expand to fit the full reel and gradually move left one place after each spin, netting you up to six re-spins with a sticky wild in play.
Raging Rex works well on mobile devices, so players who like to play on the go shouldn’t be disappointed. Whether you’re on Android or iOS, Raging Rex plays smoothly with well-rendered 3D graphics and good sound quality. Just make sure your internet connection is decent and playing should be easy.
Return to player
Raging Rex offers a return to player (RTP) of 96.34%, which is reasonably generous compared to many modern online slots and means the house edge is just 3.66%, where around 4% is probably average. It’s also a medium-high variance game, which means players may have to wait a little while before the wins roll in, but when they do it can be well worth it.
The final verdict
Raging Rex is a good introduction to the popular 4096 ways to win feature, and with a decent RTP, fantastic graphic and enjoyable game-play it’s a welcome addition to Play’N Go’s extensive slot portfolio.
