Raging Rhino Megaways Slot
Suspecting that the Raging Rhino Megaways video slot would be the choice of WMS if they ever were to jump on the Megaways™ bandwagon, it has proven to be.
The WMS slot has all the attributes to make it a Megaways™ hit; it’s an enduringly popular and beloved classic, it has a rampaging beast of the Savannah running riot, and, it’s in need of some TLC to make it relevant once again. Enter the BTG developed engine mechanic of the moment…

Design & Symbols
As you would expect when working on a game with such a classic design, WMS have stayed as true to the original as possible with the dry brush of the African savannah in brilliant yellows slowly fading into the hazy blue sky peppered with broken white clouds.
The gameboard is also very familiar with its aquamarine reels and many of the same animal symbols. Of course this time there is an additional, horizontal reel above the regular reel set containing 4 symbols above reels 2-5.
The low-value symbols are the card values 9-A. High-value symbols are badgers, crocodiles, cheetah’s gorillas, and the Raging Rhino himself. As you would expect the Rhino is the most valuable, paying 25x the stake for 5 on adjacent rows. The wild, which only appears on the top reel during the base game, is represented here by sunset, and the scatter is once again a diamond.
During both the base and bonus game Raging Rhino Megaways™ benefits from cascading reels with win streaks. There is also a lucrative free spins round with increasing win multipliers. Free spins also bring the Raging Rhino Multiplier Wild feature. As well as all this there is a Bonus Guarantee feature.
After a win lands, the winning symbols disappear to be replaced by symbols cascading from above. Any new win created by this process allows the cycle to repeat. This continues until no new win is created at which point a new spin will begin.
Raging Rhino Megaways™ Free Spins
8 free spins are earned by landing 4 diamond scatters anywhere on the board. Landing 3 more scatters during any free spin will retrigger for another 8 free spins. The cascading reels are also in play during the bonus round only this time with each wins a win multiplier will be added. The multiplier will remain even when the cascading win streak ends. The win multiplier will continue to be added to with each subsequent win until the free spins are complete.
Raging Rhino Multiplier Wild
During the bonus round the sunset wild becomes available throughout reels 2-5, as well as on the horizontal top reel. What’s more, each wild will come with a 2x, 3x, or 5x multiplier. When more than one wild forms part of a winning combo the multipliers are multiplied and applied to the win.
If a player fails to win at least 10x their stake during a free spins bonus round then the win will automatically be topped up to 10x the stake.
Raging Rhino Megaways Summary
I’m glad to see Raging Rhino has been given the Megaways™ treatment and I’m sure it will be a success. Having said that, it doesn’t really bring anything new to the table which we haven’t already seen in the likes of Bonanza, Extra Chilli, and Diamond Mine etc.
The multiplier wilds do add a little extra excitement during free spins, and when combined with the regular increasing win multipliers they can lead to some fantastic wins. However, to counterbalance these potential monster wins be prepared to enjoy some extremely lean times.
For instance, you may think the ‘Bonus Guarantee’ of just 10x the stake might be a redundant feature given how will Megaways™ free spins tend to payout. However, we managed to need it on not one but two occasions – and each took a long time to trigger!
That isn’t to say this isn’t still a great game because it certainly is. Fans of the original will love it, and with any luck, it will introduce a whole new slew of followers to the Raging Rhino fan base.
