Great Rhino Megaways™ Slot Game Background
Great Rhino Megaways™ - the middle part of a trilogy of sorts - is sandwiched between the original Great Rhino and the last game in the series, Great Rhino Deluxe. Pragmatic was looking for a candidate for their first Megaways™ title, and they settled on their classic online slot from April 2018. The original boasted a 5-reel, 3-row set-up, and a standard 20 paylines. With Great Rhino Megaways™, they went above this. As a result, the slot offers a whopping 200,704 ways to win alongside other exciting features and design mechanics.
Great Rhino Megaways™ Slot Game Design
Great Rhino Megaways™ is a 6-reel online slot game with anywhere between 2 - 7 rows, depending on the on-screen action and the size of the symbols in view. As is also usual in Megaways™ slots, the game has a horizontal reel that sits above the main game grid. In terms of paylines, Pragmatic Play decided to go above and beyond the usual 117,649 ways-to-win, instead offering a massive 200,704 ways-to-win alongside a max potential payout of 20,000x the stake! But that’s not all that Pragmatic Play has decided to revamp. Great Rhino Megaways™ comes with an overhaul in presentation, graphics, and even music. Fans of the original will be pleased to know that the slot still offers a glimpse into the world of an African savannah teeming with wildlife: gorillas, cheetahs, zebras, crocodiles, and of course, the titular rhino. Pragmatic has also seen fit to refresh Great Rhino Megaways™ with a few extra features.
The setting of the great African savannah will be instantly recognizable to anyone who has ever played a Great Rhino slot, with the great expanse of the African landscape (comprising rocks, grass, trees, and distant mountains) streaming out from behind the game grid. As a result, the game’s primary color is golden-brown (with a dash of blue for the African skies). This contrasts with the original slot's primary golden-orange color scheme to depict the savannah at sunset. There are other subtle differences between them as well. The biggest one is the way the game grid is laid out. The original has a simple 5x3 set-up with a brown color scheme. The Megaway™ iteration has a more elaborate set-up due to the increased number of reels and rows; the color scheme is a deep green and the game grid is held up with assegai spears. All in all, it’s a good-looking slot.

Great Rhino Megaways™ Slot Bonus Features
Great Rhino Megaways™ offers a few bonuses and features sure to get the excitement going!
Those familiar with other Megaways™ slots will recognize the Avalanche or Cascading Reels feature, here called the Tumble feature, but the idea is the same. Symbols in winning combinations disappear from the reels, creating space for other symbols to fall into the recently vacated positions. These new symbols are the same size as the ones they replaced. Tumbling continues until no more winning combinations appear as a result.
Free Spins Feature
The next feature of note is the Free Spins bonus round, which is triggered by landing at least 4 Scatter symbols on the reels. At the start of the feature, you can choose from four free spins + multiplier options, depending on the number of Scatters that triggered the bonus round. Landing 4, 5, or 6 Scatters presents players with different options. Below are the ones when triggering the feature with the minimum 4 Scatter requirement:
Alternatively, you can go for the random free spin + multiplier option - great for players who love surprises!
The Free Spins bonus round has a couple more cool features. Land 3 Scatter symbols during the feature and another 5 Free Spins are yours, with no limitations. Also, every tumble during the Free Spins feature awards an additional 1x win multiplier. After every tumble, the win of that tumble is multiplied by the current win multiplier.
The incorporation of the Megaways™ engine means that each reel can reveal a certain number of symbols in view. Landing consecutive symbols on all reels after a spin could lead to a maximum of 200,704 ways to win! All winning combinations are totaled, and payouts are multiplied by the stake.
