Rhino Hold and Win Slot Review
The Rhinoceros. A sensitive subject.
In the end, you can bring extinction down to two very simple ideas. Humans cause extinctions, first, by killing animals, and second, by destroying the places where animals live. There are however, miles and miles of great habitat for rhinos, with no rhinos. Rhinos all over the world are killed for their horns. Therefore, the natural habitats are not all being utilized because the rhinos have to be safely guarded in national parks and the like. It is sad that the only way to save the animal has been to put a fence around wild places, and to fill them with men who enforce the law.
Worldwide, agreements need to be reached and attitudes need to change. A rhinoceros horn does more for the world when it’s on the nose of a rhino than it does ground up in a box for medicine or carved into fancy shapes for ceremonial dagger handles.
It’s not rocket-science. Neither is Rhino Hold and Win by Booming Games.
The wild symbol can land as a single 1x1 symbol, or fully stacked to cover entire reels. The stacked wilds can land on reels 2 to 5 only, and all wilds step in for regular pay symbols to help you complete winning combos. The wild holds no value of its own, but the 4 premium animal symbols pay between 4 and 10 x your stake for 5 of a kind wins. You trigger the Bonus Round when you land 3 scatters on reels 2, 3 and 4 at the same time, and this awards 8 free spins. You also get a 2x scatter win up front, and all lower-value royal symbols are removed from the reels during the feature. You can retrigger the bonus round the same way it was triggered in the first place, and you can also trigger the Hold and Win feature from within it. The Hold and Win feature is triggered when you land 6+ value symbols (big gold coins with a random value attached) anywhere in sight. The triggering symbols become sticky on a cleared grid, and you get 3 spins. The counter resets to 3 for every new sticky value symbol you land, and the regular value symbols are worth between 1x and 20x your stake. In addition, you have 3 fixed jackpots. Two of them, the Mini and the Major jackpots, are won by landing a corresponding jackpot value coin. These pay 25x and 100x, respectively, and you can win more than one per session. If you fill all positions with value symbols you win the 1,000x Grand Jackpot, plus the summed up winnings from value and jackpot value symbols.
It cannot be denied that Rhino Hold and Win is very similar to Buffalo Hold and Win, which was released into the wild earlier this year. The features are identical, although the math model has been tweaked ever so slightly, which might be an attempt to escape the reskin stamp. Both are highly volatile installments, but this one comes with a slightly lower RTP of 95.87 %.
We would probably prefer this Rhino version if we had to choose between this and the Buffalo, but that is mostly due to the somewhat increased 1,200x potential, and not because we hate buffaloes. Both games are mediocre installments and run-of-the-mill Hold & Win efforts, and they do nothing to justify players choosing them over countless similar releases we see every month.
Maximum win of x 1,200.
People do change, the world can change its mind. The important thing is to make people change their minds while there are still rhinos there to save.
You can change your mind too and give Rhino Hold and Win a fighting chance.
