Online Slot Game of the Week: Raging Rhino
Want more ways to win? Try WMS’ Raging Rhino, the online slot for bigger, better hits. We also review IGT’s Jeopardy! and NetEnt’s Starburst.
When playing online slots, you may go for games with lots of paylines. It’s simple logic: the more ways to win, the better your chances. That kind of thinking has propelled an online slot like Raging Rhino from WMS Games to the top of the heap.
Raging Rhino doesn’t have paylines. It’s an “anyway” slot, meaning you can line up game symbols in any position on the game’s six reels, from left to right.
That means Raging Rhino offers 4,096 ways to win.
We’ll just let that sink in.
Raging Rhino is set in the African savannah, with symbols of wild animals along with traditional card symbols. The coolest symbol is the rhino, which charges at you when you hit a payout. But the symbols to look out for are the savannah tree—the wild symbol—and the diamond, which triggers free spin modes.
The game’s free spins modes are exceptional. Three diamonds give you 8 free spins and each extra diamond adds more spins. Get 6—one on each reel—and you get 50 free spins!
As for the wild tree symbol, if it lands on reel 2 or 6, it become a bonus multiplier. Line up the wild symbols with the valuable rhino symbol and you could see some pretty big hits.
And that’s the key to playing Raging Rhino. It’s a high-volatility game and worth waiting out the big hit. The “anyway” feature will give you plenty of small wins to keep you interested. But when the rhino hits, he hits big.

If you love the TV game show Jeopardy!, you’ll love this online slot from IGT. The game looks cool. It has great graphics. And it plays like you’re a real contestant on the game show.
Big hits are met with applause. Hit really big, and Alex Trebek himself appears onscreen to heap praise on you. One note of caution: If you play for any length of time, you’d better love the Jeopardy! theme music.
This is a 5-reel, 40-payline slot. The wild symbol is the Jeopardy! logo and really comes into play during the game’s wild-rush feature, which spontaneously turns more symbols wild, upping your chance at a win.
Make your first deposit of $25 or more at PalaCasino.com, and you’ll be entered to win 50 Bonus Spins on the $1 Million Slot Machine. iGamingPlayer.com offers the best signup bonuses for PalaCasino.com.

The big pay symbols are Trebek and some of the TV show’s question presenters (you have to be a fan to know). The rest of the game’s symbols are the show’s category symbols: sports, science etc.
Another important symbol is the bonus icon, which serves as the game’s scatter symbol. Land 2 or more for free-spin rewards. You get to make picks on the famed Jeopardy! board to win your spins, and as you might expect, the Double Jeopardy! symbol gives you an extra pick.
Jeopardy is not a high stakes slot—the max bet is usually $5—but it’s a lot of fun for Jeopardy! fans, with great colors and graphics and some fun twists.

Here’s a sneak peek:
The Starburst online slot from NetEnt is a mesmerizingly beautiful game and a big favorite among online slot players.
Game symbols are bright gems with some other standards like lucky 7’s and bar symbols thrown in. The game’s great graphics are present on every spin, especially on hits. Play is accompanied by a pleasant mellow soundtrack.
Starburst has 5 reels and only 10 paylines, but does feature a “both ways” payoff, meaning symbols can line up left to right or right to left. Alas, there’s no free-spins bonus round in the game.
The starburst symbol is the key to the game. It’s the wild symbol and only appears on lines 2, 3 and 4. When it hits, the whole reel turns wild. You’ll then get paid for any hits and nab a free second spin. Hit more wilds on that spin, and you get a third spin. That could add up to big money.
Starburst is a simple, popular online slot games.
Reels – 5
Paylines – 10
Volatility – low to medium
