When I saw the Raging Rex title in my queue of games to play, I instantly thought of a dinosaur doing steroids and looking like Arnold Schwarzenegger, albeit with tiny arms. This isn't exactly what we get with Play'n Go's Raging Rex slot, but the game does give us a moody game that delivers on multiple levels.
Raging Rex is a 6 reel, 4096 ways to win video slot set in a prehistoric jungle that's teaming with a bunch of different dragon flies. The game's symbols are epic, with a mosquito in amber, spider in amber, beetle in amber, scorpion in amber, dragonfly in amber, and lizard in amber making up the low paying symbols. The high paying symbols are a triceratops, dilophosaurus, velociraptor, T-Rex, and the dinosaur destroying meteor that changed life on earth as we know it (morbid, eh?).
The game's bonus features include stacked symbols, wilds, scatters (the meteors), free spins, re-spins, and win multipliers. You will get a re-spin if the stacked T-Rex wild lands in a position that occupies a full visible reel. He will then walk left one reel at a time until he is off screen, with you getting a free re-spin at each step along the way. If you nail three or more of the meteor scatters you will trigger Raging Spins, which is a free spins round that can be re-triggered indefinitely. During the Raging Spins round there is a Wild Hunt feature that drops random wild T-Rex symbols onto the reels, and a Primal Rage feature that makes the wild T-Rex occupy a whole reel during a spin.
The game is almost like playing a blockbuster film, as the visuals are striking and the music is full of tension. The great presentation is present on both the desktop and mobile versions of the game, which are both nearly identical, save for the touch interface built into the phone model. This game is a lot of fun to play on both though, and there were countless times where I was holding my breath to see the meteors raining down, hoping that there'd be enough for a free spins round to be set off.
If you're a fan of dinosaurs, there are a lot of great dino slots to play, but I highly recommend you give Raging Rex a try. It's probably the only time you'd happy to experience a T-Rex on a rampage first hand, and definitely the only time you're going to score cash prizes in the process. So get your hiking gear on and spin the reels to try and get prehistoric on this game.
