With a couple of fixed jackpots and an African wild life theme, Great Rhino is the latest slot machine that Pragmatic Play is preparing for release, and one of their titles which go above the 96% line, RTP wise.
Great Rhino is a 5-reel title, sporting 20 active lines and capable of delivering payouts of $50,000 at most. It does this through regular combinations or fixed jackpots, and along the way it will also give you wild symbols, bonus scatters and free spins.
Betting and Prizes
When it comes to the way bets are approached, if you’ve played any Pragmatic Play slot, then you’re likely to be familiar with their system already. They often use fixed lines, 20 in this case, with the bets for them going from $0.01 to $5. They do this with 1 to 10 coins for each active line, where the denomination is set to at most $0.50.
Looking at the paytable, the best reward that you’re going to see there will come via the Rhino Coin symbol, which will deliver up to $2,500 in exchange for five on a line. The game also has two fixed jackpots though, which pay 375x or 500x total bet, and they’re called Major and Grand Jackpot, respectively. Up to $50,000 will be coming your way through them.
Great Rhino Slot Features
Some of the features available in Great Rhino should be considered average and available in a lot of different games, while others are somewhat unique.
Among the former you will find the wild symbol, which is usable either as a way to form combinations directly, or as a substitute that works when it’s combined with a regular symbol. It will not be a replacement for the Bonus Tree, but for every other symbol it will do its job. Its own combinations can pay $2,500, or 500x the line bet.
Moving on to the scatter, the African Tree, it’s marked as a Bonus and it will behave as a scatter symbol. Not all reels can get it, only the middle three, and all are needed to get you the free spins. You will get 10 free games out of them, where Rhino symbols are turned into wilds for the entire duration. There are also special reels into play.
The Super Respins are going to be favorites for a lot of players, as the feature can pay the best payouts of the game, in the form of the Grand and Major Jackpots. The trigger consists of two stacks of Rhino symbols that cover two reels. The stacked Rhinos remain locked, the other reels re-spin and try to bring you more of the same.
Theme & Design
While some of its features look interesting, I can’t really say the same about the theme or even the graphics of Great Rhino. The game’s African wildlife theme is a common one, as is the graphics style that is in use here. The symbols show you the Rhino in several cases, along with leopards, alligators, hyenas and flamingos. Other than that, you get special feature symbols with African trees and four of the standard Royals that most slots will use in the same basic form. All in all, not one of the strong points of Great Rhino, but if you enjoy everything else it’s not a reason to walk away from the game either.
Great Rhino promises to be interesting thanks to its 96.53% RTP, but I wouldn’t expect great graphics from it.
