Raging Rhino Mighty Ways Slot
Raging Rhino Mighty Ways Slot Review 2023
Light & Wonder are taking us back into dangerous territory as we head to the Savanna in the hopes of seeing a stampede, in Raging Rhino Mighty Ways!
Light & Wonder has taken another of their beloved titles and entwined it with the almighty Mighty Ways mechanic, but will this new take on an old favourite live up to expectations? Raging Rhino is the 3rd and probably not final Light & Wonder slot to recieve the Mighty Ways upgrade, alongside Cluedo Mighty Ways and 300 Shields Mighty Ways.
Raging Rhino is one of those slots that gained widespread popularity. Even years after its released, it’s remembered and revered by many.
It had a few variants over the years, with a Megaways instalment released back in 2019. The actual original goes back much further having released in land-based casinos before coming online over 8 years ago.
Few slots have a résumé like Raging Rhino, and now its glorious return is marked with the great Mighty Ways mechanic. Can Mighty Ways do Raging Rhino Justice?
Let’s check it out.
Raging Rhino Mighty Ways Base Game and Features
Raging Rhino Mighty Ways is a 6 reel slot with up to 262,144 ways to win. Winning combinations are formed when 3 or more of the same symbols (or 2 or more of the highest paying symbol) lands from left to right, starting from the left-most reel.
The minimum bet available to players is £/€0.20 per spin and the maximum bet available is £/€20 per spin, with plenty of other betting options in between the two. Raging Rhino Mighty Ways has a theoretical RTP of 95.93% and a max win capacity of 12,000x.
Thanks to the Mighty Ways mechanic, Raging Rhino Mighty Ways features Cascading Reels. Each time a winning combination forms, all winning symbols will be removed from the reels and new symbols will drop down from above, filling all empty positions.
Once a Cascade occurs, the Mighty Ways will open up and increase by +1 in height per symbol on each winning reel. Each of the reels can reach a maximum height of 6 in the base game and 8 in Free Spins, awarding up to 262,144 Mighty Ways to win. Once all Cascades are complete, the total number of Mighty Ways will be reset for the next spin.
In terms of symbols, the highest paying regular symbol is the Rhino, followed by the Gorilla, Cheetah, Crocodile and Badger. Low-paying symbols are standard Ace, King, Queen, Jack, Ten and Nine.
There is also a Wild and guaranteed Wild symbol present on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 which substitutes for all other symbols except Bonus and Super Bonus Scatters. Both the Wild and Guaranteed Wild are represented by the same symbol.
During any random spin in the base game, the Enhanced Reels feature can randomly trigger.
When this happens, the reels will spin with an extra row in play. Also during this time, additional Rhino symbols may be added to the extra row.
Raging Rhino Mighty Ways Free Spins
Landing 3, 4, 5 or 6 Bonus Scatters in any position across the reels triggers the Free Spins round, awarding 5, 7, 10 and 15 Free Spins respectively.
There is also a Super Bonus Scatter in play, which can appear on all reels. Up to 2 Super Bonus Scatters can be involved in any Free Spins trigger. For every Super Bonus Scatter that triggers the Free Spins round, a guaranteed Wild symbol will be active during Free Spins.
During Free Spins, a Multiplier of x2 or x3 will be applied to each Wild or guaranteed Wild that is part of a winning combination for that particular Cascade.
If a guaranteed Wild symbol is present but is not part of a winning combination, when the reels cascade it will disappear and move to a new position on the reel set. If a guaranteed Wild is part of a winning combination, it will be removed until all cascades are complete and then reappear during the next Free Spin.
Landing 2, 3, 4 or 5 Bonus Scatters during the Free Spins round, awards an additional +3, +5, +7 and +10 Free Spins respectively.

Raging Rhino Mighty Ways: Our verdict
Raging Rhino Mighty Ways isn’t as volatile as 300 Shields Mighty Ways is, but that’s to be expected given the apparent need for 300x multipliers to make it true to the series.
Despite this, we think the Mighty Ways Mechanic shines once again; maybe even more so than the Megaways mechanic in some regard. The Mighty Ways mechanic just feels like it has the potential to kick off at any given moment with ways that can grow beyond comprehension.
One minute you’re playing with a moderate amount of ways, and the next minute there’s too many symbols to even read the situation.
The Mighty Ways mechanic seems to work around the way the games worked previousy, and the personality of the original Raging Rhino is still alive and well here. The Megaways mechanic can see itself as the main event at times, but we appreciate how the Mighty Ways mechanic seems to work to enunciate the personality of the game.
This is where we think it shines. Many games have lost their uniqueness by adopting a standard version of the Megaways mechanic, yet none of the Mighty Ways slots has done the same.
In terms of potential, Raging Rhino Mighty Ways looks great with up to 12,000x as a maximum win. It’s not quite 300 Shields Mighty Ways, but like we said, we didn’t really expect it.
Overall, Raging Rhino Mighty Ways is a great ode to the original game, and a fun way to re-experience the legend that is Raging Rhino.
