Proving that rhinos are just fat unicorns, this Respin Rhino slot packs a punch as you try and navigate the wild African savannahs.
First of all, we are going to admit that we weren’t huge fans of the theme of this Lightning Box game.
This digital slots software doesn’t generally do amazing looking slots, but they can do better than this.
The animal animations feel like they are 10 years old already and the music isn’t much to shout home about.
More disturbing is the wild African lady who is meant to be sexy as she twirls on screen, but as you can actually see her ribs, just makes you feel sorry for a third world country rather than want to explore a rich African culture.
Which is a shame, because that wild symbol really makes the base game fly as she expands on reels 2 and 4 and creates wins on multiple lines.
Despite making us uncomfortable at first, you can’t deny that the Respin Rhino wild symbol is effective, even the simplest games like Bork the Berzerker can be improved with expanding wilds.
The good news is that you don’t need to wait long for the bonus games to kick in.
Well, considering you need to get a stack of golden symbols on reel 1 and 5 at the same time, they are surprisingly easy to catch.
Reason being you only get 3 respins of the reels but reel 1 and 5 are always fully stacked with the Respin Rhino symbol – the highest paying symbol over these 5 reels.
However, if you get the skinny wild lady expand on the reels, she will restart the counter to 3 free spins, so you can potentially get 9 of these special bonus free spins.
It’s not always high paying, mostly you get around 20x your bet, but we’ve seen over 100 times our bet to know it’s possible and far more on top.
Still, despite the fairly fun mechanics, we found it hard to see beyond the generic theme of this Respin Rhino mobile slot – might as well stick to the 4096 ways to win Raging Rhino game at that point.

Expanding Wilds: The African dancing lady is the wild symbol and shows up on reels 2 and 4.
If she can create a win, she will expand to cover the whole reel.
Rhino Respin Features: Reel 1 and 5 have golden version of the normal symbols, except they come stacked.
Land a full reel of these golden symbols on both reels and you'll trigger 3 free spins.
Here, the highest paying symbol (the rhino) will be fully stacked on reels 1 and 5 for all the spins. If you get an expanded wild, the counter resets to 3.
We weren't fans of this animal African slot theme - even if you look past the malnutrition, all the symbols are generic and the animations and the sounds not much more interesting.
However, this has some really fun mechanics thanks to expanding wilds and some great re-spins that make you forget that it's the only bonus game around.
If you can look past the theme, this is fun for a quick afternoon spin, though personally, we'd rather go on a Hot Safari by Pragmatic Play.
