Set in the African Savannah, the Raging Pop slot by Avatar UX studios boasts Popwin mechanics, but not in the way you think.
We are big fans of the Popwin slot games – they give you value for money as every win increases the reels by extra symbols, leading in a chain reaction of wins.
The Raging Pop slot online only has Popwin Mechanics during the free spins bonus. In the base game, the wins will explode but will just be replaced by the same number of symbols, while random multipliers of 500x your bet can still help bring you wins of 20,000x your bet.
It’s an unusually high variance game, so we have to ask – is the top win worth the low RTP of 94%? And is sacrificing the Popwins mechanics in the base game going to help it compete with the Cherry Pop Deluxe slot where you get them all the time?
In the base game, it’s simple enough. Wins will explode when you get 3 or more symbols on adjacent reels anywhere on the 6×4 setup. New symbols replace those exact same spots allowing you to get multiple wins in a row.
Sometimes the rows of reels may randomly expand to up to 7 symbols high, giving you huge ways to win, with multipliers ranging from 2x to 500x. It’s not often but it happens.
Mostly that’s what you are spinning – pretty reels with rhinos, leopards, buffalo, crocodiles, butterflies, parrots, and golden fish. But if you use the super bet and increase your bet by 20%, you can double your chance of triggering the free spins.
You’ll need those odds to catch the bonus.
If you do manage to get 3 or more scatter symbols on the reels, you are guaranteed to win 10 free spins. You can gamble on a wheel of fortune to get up to 30 free spins.
And if you do get more than 20, this Raging Pop mobile slot will sing for you. Why? Because on every win, the reels will expand not by one symbol (like in the Monkey Pop slot) but by 2 symbols, giving this a quick win action feel that is hard to beat.
The random multipliers can still show up. This tells us that you need to open up over 2 million ways to win and get a 500x multiplier to get anywhere near the Raging Pop online slot top win of 20,000x your bet.
This is not an easy real money casino game to conquer, especially with that low RTP, but if you love very volatile slot games, it’s a must try at your favourite mobile casinos online.

Wild Symbol: The blue wild will replace any other symbol to create a win.
Win all Ways: When three or more of the same symbols are sitting adjacent on any 3 reels. If any reels contain more than 1 instance of the symbol, the win will be multiplied.
Avalanching Wins: On a win, the symbols pop and explode and are immediately replaced by other symbols in the same place. This continues for as long as you get wins on the reels.
Reel Expansion: On any spin, any of the reels can grow to 5, 6, or 7 symbols tall. After the reel expansion, it may also add random multipliers of x2, x3, x5, x10, x15, x20, x20, x25, x30, x50, x100, x200 and x500.
Free Spins and Popwins: 3 scatters will trigger the free spins bonus. You can then gamble your free spins to try and catch 15, 20, or 30 free spins, but if you lose your gamble, you lose the bonus.
You start with 6 reels and 5 rows on 10+ spins. If you catch 20 spins, you start with a 6x6 machine. But every win in the free spins will increase the reels by two symbols high, giving you progressively larger ways to win - some over 2 million ways. The reels reset between spins to the shortest level unlocked, and you can randomly get a stampeded multiplier ranging from x2 to x500.
Superbet: For an extra 20% per spin, you can double your chances of catching the free spin bonus.
Buy Bonus: you can buy entry into the free spin bonus.
You can, from the 80x your bet buy, gamble to get more free spins.
Why would you create a Popwins slot but only add the mechanics in the free spins? Add the 94% RTP, and it's hard to give this Raging Pop slot review more than 3 stars.
Thankfully, it has some decent wins available, making this Avatar UX game very playable, if only for a short time.
It's beautiful; it has big wins, and if you found it at casinos with Yggdrasil slots, you'd have a good time playing. But then you'll be introduced to casino slots like the Hippo Pop slot, and you won't come back to this slot again.
