COMING SOON: PRAGMATIC PLAY’S FIRST MEGAWAYS SLOT
Published: April 25, 2020
One of the best new online slots that I can recommend keeping an eye out for next week is the new Great Rhino Megaways online slot from Pragmatic Play. It’s officially set to arrive in casinos on Thursday, April 30th, and it will be released simultaneously on desktop and mobile. Canadian players will have access to this game in the real money mode and free play demo mode at Casino.com and Mansion Casino, and it will take just seconds to launch in most web browsers.
This new African Wildlife/Rhino-themed online slot is the first online slot from Pragmatic Play with the Megaways™ game mechanic (which comes under license from Big Time Gaming). It has 6 regular reels and also 1 row of symbols that spins horizontally and sits just above reels 2, 3, 4 and 5. The good news is that with each spin you take, there can be up to as many as 200,704 different ways to win.
If you enjoyed playing on the original Great Rhino online slot from Pragmatic Play and if you’re a fan of Megaways slots such as Safari Gold Megaways from Blueprint Gaming, then I’m also fairly confident that you’re going to love playing on this new slot too. On any lucky spin, you will be playing to win up to 20,000x times your total stake, and the two main special symbols to keep an eye out for are the Gold Coin Scatter Symbols and the Rhino Wild Symbols.
The Wild Symbols can only ever land on the horizontal reel, and they will substitute all other symbols on the reels apart from the Scatter Symbols, which can land in any position across any of the reels. This game has a special betting option that doubles your chances of triggering the main bonus feature. If you play with this betting option switched on, you can play from as little as C$0.25 per spin up to a maximum of C$125.00 per spin, and when switched off, you can play from C$0.20 per spin up to C$100.00 per spin.
You need 3 or more Scatter Symbols to land on the reels on the same spin to trigger the main bonus feature, and once triggered, you will immediately be presented with a bonus choice. Here you can go for 15 Free Spins and a 1X Prize Multiplier, 10 Free Spins and a 5X Multiplier or 5 Free Spins and a 10X Multiplier. The choice is yours. You could also select a random number of Free Spins and a random multiplier and just hope for the best.
I can’t wait for this new slot to arrive, which looks as though it will be an instant hit with players. Why not check out some of the other similar online slots that I mentioned above while you’re waiting for the new Great Rhino Megaways slot to be released.
