Sometimes players just want a game without any over-the-top thrills, crazy animations, or impossible-to-follow bonus structures. And that’s usually the spot in the market where Pragmatic Play calls home!
Great Rhino is a new take on an old theme, placing players out in an African safari, complete with stampeding animals and tribal music. It’s a 5-reel, 20-payline game with only a few hidden surprises for players lucky enough to activate them. Enjoy!
Funky animals, warm jungle, jingly music, and strange “animal noises” when you hit a winning combination. You in?
Playing the Game
Honestly there is nothing about the base gameplay to separate this from any other slot released in the past 5-10 years: the artwork is very basic (and some symbols don’t actually fit within their reels…), the functions are minimal, and the spins are a bit slow. It’s a medium volatility game, but we found that medium-large sized wins were very infrequent.
The rhino is the most valuable regular symbol, as you’d expect, worth 20x the bet amount for 5-at-a-time. There is also the leopard, crocodile, lemur, and flamingo in tow. In addition to the basic playing card suits, you can also land the wild and bonus symbol.
As with all slots, the wild substitutes for any other symbol (except the bonus), while the bonus symbol itself opens up a special free spins round – if you can get all 3 of them!
There’s a cool base game feature called SUPER RESPINS. Basically if you manage to land two full stacks of Rhinos, you are given a handful of respins; every time a new rhino hits the screen, you are given another respin! Get 14 rhinos on screen, and unlock the Major jackpot; get all 15, and unlock the grand jackpot of 500x your bet.
In addition to those heavy-duty jackpots, players can access a regular old free spins round. Land all 3 bonus symbols in a single spin to get your 10 spins! Unfortunately, it is not possible to retrigger any free spins, nor activate the super respins feature.
We managed to trigger the bonus round 3 times during testing, and returned 18x, 36x, and 8x respectively. If your luck is in, there are BIG wins waiting for you!
Honestly, the best word to describe Great Rhino is…fine. There’s nothing very special about it, and the graphics are pretty weak, but there are also far worse games out there! It’s easy to play, and if you get on a good run, can pay out up to 500x your stake, which is extremely generous.
