Raging Rex 3 Review
In many ways, this slot is very similar to Raging Rex 2 and this also rings true with the feature selection and base game modifiers. The only real difference between the two games is that you have a more varied choice of bonus rounds with this latest release thanks to the addition of the Survival Game, which is more akin to a respins bonus than a free spins round. Let's see if anything else separates this third instalment from its predecessors.
If you were looking for something completely different from the other games in this trilogy, then you may be slightly disappointed to hear that the design is almost identical. That said, this is pretty standard for a slot series so we can't expect any crazy tangents.
The symbol set is very similar to those that have gone before it and the jungle setting only differs slightly with the type of trees that sway in the background now. Oh, and we also have some dragonflies to keep us company as well.
The soundtrack feels a little less ‘Goonies adventure’ as it did previously and now has a far more ominous undertone. But don’t worry, you still get those incredible screeches when REX appears.
As with other games in this trilogy, players spend most of the time waiting for REX to turn up in his entirety to wreak havoc with Wild symbol action. The lack of other modifiers while waiting for this to happen does bug me a little and I thought there might have been a couple of add-ons to look forward to.
The Free Spins Bonus is just as exciting as before, so I'm pleased to say that making your way to this coveted part of the production will give you just as much of a kick as it always has. As I said before, the Survival game really does help mix things up a bit.
The original Raging Rex slot was given a phenomenal max win boost from 5,000x to 30,000x as this game progressed through the first two releases. You might assume that part 3 would increase this yet again but unfortunately, it wasn't to be. So a 30,000x top payout it is and the RTP stays at 96.20 as well. The medium/high volatility is another stat that hasn’t budged.
For me, it's important for any slot release to shine brightly on its own merits rather than relying on an exact model that has been used before. But that’s not always the case, and Raging REX 3 has fallen into the same trap. While that does irk me a little, I can’t deny that this is a fun slot with big payout potential and some subtle gameplay variations make it a top choice for anyone looking for a new dinos-slot adventure!
