About Raging Rex 2

Play n Go continue to push out a wide variety of games in 2022 covering their usual bases of great grid game action, rock n roll, nature and more. This time round they’ve gone back to the source of one of a game first released back in 2019! Raging Rex was a superb 4,096 payline, high variance game, rich in graphics, scary monsters and any which way Wilds that walk, wander and stick!

So how can they top that in a sequel?

Simply by turning up the dial on payouts and features whilst also bringing more of the same. Raging Rex 2 brings back that lush forest background and sunset scene, and stacks the reels with plenty of prehistoric creatures, including Rex, but this time flanked by hits hatchlings who are there to help. The atmosphere is strong, and overall the features are similar but this time the winning potential is boosted up to an impressive 30,000x your bet from the previous 5,000x reward from the original game.

RTP and Variance 8/10

What is RTP?

RTP (Return to Player) refers to the amount a game will pay out in cash prizes expressed as a percentage of all the money wagered on that game. For example, a 96% RTP means a game will pay out £96 for every £100 wagered. This is an average number and will vary from one session to the next.  Read more here.

What is Variance?

Variance refers to how far a game will deviate from its RTP over time. High variance games deviate a lot and produce uneven win distributions and unexpected windfalls. Low variance games provide a more stable and even distribution of wins. Read more here.

The maths will be interesting to fans of the original – the RTP of this slot is 96.2%, which is bang on average for Play n Go. The variance though has been dialled down to a 6/10, or medium, which is a big change from the high volatility of the original Raging Rex.

The biggest difference though is the massive 30,000x stake top prize which puts this version in competition with some of Play n Go’s rivals like No Limit City and Relax Gaming. Big wins are most likely to arrive if you’re playing at higher betting levels and land the biggest Multipliers during the Hatchling Mania Free Spins round. More on that in a moment.

Paytable 8/10

The action here takes place on a 6×4 grid with 4,096 payline in play at all times. Wins are triggered by landing 3 or more identical symbols on the reels from left to right.

The graphics are as lush as you can expect from an online slot with nicely illustrated creatures and stones forming the basis for the paytable. They include four dino characters, along with their footprints. Now, for fans of paleontology, the dinosaurs roaming the forests in this game include a pachycephalosaurus, stegosaurus, brachiosaurus and ankylosaurus. These quirky beasts will award 4x to 6x your bet for 6 of a kind, while the footprints can pay from 1x to 1.4x your bet for 6 of a kind.

You’ll also find the Rex and Hatchings Wild symbols, which can appear on reels 2 to 6 and stand in for all the other symbols in the game, except the egg Scatter. This egg can trigger the Free Spins round if 3 or more appear on the reels.

Gameplay & Features 9/10

So that’s the basics, what about the big wins? To trigger those you’ll need a bit of help from the Wilds that can land, stick and walk, as well as trigger re-spins and free spins.

Here are the big actions to look out for when spinning the reels in the base game.

  • The REX WILD is massive – he always triggers a re-spin.
  • On a re-spin REX becomes a WALKING WILD – he moves one place to the left on EVERY re-spin.
  • When Rex walks, so too do any HATCHLING WILDS present on the reels. They walk in front of behind Rex.
  • It’s possible to land FIVE RESPINS in this way as for each re-spin your original wilds are still on the grid, until they wander off the far end.

Now, Walking Wilds are helpful in the base game but things get more epic in the bonus round. Here is how that unfolds.

  • EGG Scatters are needed to activate free spins. 3, 4, 5 or 6 unlocks FREE SPINS and gets you a pay out of 5x, 10x, 25x or 100x.
  • You get to CHOOSE a free spins format from THREE options. Each option gives you a separate Wild experience as follows:
  • PRIMAL FURY – here you get 8, 12, 16 or 20 Free Spins with Sticky Rex Wilds moving left or right. Landing more Scatters triggers up to 18 extra Free Spins.
  • HATCHLING MANIA – now you get 7, 9, 11 or 13 Free Spins with Hatchling Wilds. These Wilds are sticky and can move left or right awarding a 2x or 3x Multiplier. Landing more Scatters can trigger up to 12 extra Free Spins. NOTE: there is NO REX in Hatchling Mania.
  • JURASSIC MAYHEM – here you get 5, 7, 9 or 11 Free Spins with BOTH Rex AND Hatchling Sticky Wilds moving left or right. Landing more Scatters can award up to 5 extra Free Spins.

Our Verdict 8.8/10

Raging Rex 2 is an atmospheric slot with a great soundtrack, frightening dinosaur graphics and prehistoric footprints embedded into stone bringing a truly Jurassic feel.

This is a strong sequel, maintaining all the charm of the original but boosting the potential reward with a 30,000x stake top prize, increased substantially from the previous 5,000x. This boost in cash potential is thanks to the additional Free Spins round, where you could build up a 243x Multiplier during Hatchling Mania. For those chasing the big prizes, this opens up massive winning opportunities.

The medium volatility is a welcome change from the original slot too – fans of more volatile gameplay may find it too tame but it does at least invite more risk-averse players to test their luck.

So, if you’re a dinosaur fan and enjoy a good balance of bets to rewards, Raging Rex 2 should be on your list. This new spinner arrives in online slot sites in March 2022.
