Pragmatic Play continues Safari saga with new slot Great Rhino Deluxe: extends Latin America footprint with Universal Race content deal

Pragmatic Play has released its fourth slot for the month of July in Great Rhino Deluxe, while also continuing its LatAm expansion via operator, Universal Race.

In addition to an uplifting soundtrack and strong visuals, the medium volatility deluxe edition comes with plenty of African wildlife and potential wins of over 6,000 times the stake!

Game symbols:

As for the game’s symbols, there are the Q-A regulars, along with flamingos, hyenas, crocodiles, gorillas, and cheetahs. And this time around, the mighty rhino is the most valuable of all the regular symbols, and worth 20x the stake for five of a kind. Serving as the Wild is the Golden Rhino, which pays out on two of a kind, or up to 25 times for five like symbols. It also substitutes for all other symbols with the exception of the scatter. The Scatter, by the way, is represented by the Acacia tree.

Grand Jackpot:

As players search the Serengeti for riches they will trigger one of the game’s two features, the Super Respin, by landing at least two full stacks of the thundering Rhino symbols on the same spin. For each additional Rhino that lands on the reels during the bonus, a 2x multiplier is added. If a player is lucky enough to fill every all 15 positions with a rhino, they will be awarded the 500x Grand jackpot. A maximum multiplier win here, according to Pragmatic, reaches x6,242!

Meanwhile, landing a trio of scatter symbols on reels 2, 3, and 4, awards players 10 extra spins. During the stampeding Extra Spins mode, each time a rhino symbol lands, it is collected. On the final spin, all the rhinos that have been collected are dropped in random positions onto the reels, making it possible to claim rampaging wins.
