Don’t worry – it only happens on the reels of this dramatic pokie game. T-Rex couldn’t be a better title, and it tells us something about the most famous dinosaur of all. And arguably the most feared, too. We’re glad they’re not still around. Can you imagine if they were? We doubt humans would still be around!
The T-Rex pokie is dark, dramatic, and suitably designed. We’ll come to all those elements shortly. We have a lot to get through in this slot review, so let’s begin.
Who came up with this idea?
Plenty of developers have produced dinosaur-themed slots. This title comes from RTG.
It includes a demo too
Yes, if you just want to check it out in greater detail, load the practice option rather than the real one.
The theme doesn’t spring any surprises
We find ourselves in the land of dinosaurs in this game, far from the modern world. Anything else would be a disappointment, right?
A darkened forest supports a good design
There may not be any 3D elements here, but we can certainly appreciate the detail that has gone into other areas of the game. We usually dislike seeing the A, 10, Q, and 9 symbols that appear in slots, but the ones in this game look like they’ve been carved out of stone.
There are dinosaur eggs, weird plants, and of course the dinosaurs themselves too. And the mightiest among those is the Tyrannosaurus Rex.
How to play the T-Rex pokie game
You’ll get five reels to spin as you play, and these bring you the T-Rex as the wild symbol. Did you expect anything else? It carries a 2x multiplier along for the ride but disappointingly only shows up on the middle reel.
The egg we mentioned earlier is used as the scatter symbol. That means it can appear anywhere and you only need to find enough of them to unlock a scatter prize. In this game, just two are needed for this to happen.
Finally, you might also spot the random jackpot above the set of reels. This is a progressive prize that could pay out following a paid spin. The trigger is random.
Paylines in the T-Rex pokie
There are 25 to play on here – none of which are fixed.
Place your bets and see what happens
Don’t choose any bets until you have worked out an affordable budget to play with. Never assume any bets will return prizes. The good news is a penny is available as the cheapest coin. The biggest option is 25 cents per coin.
The paytable is spread over just two pages
They are nicely designed, though, offering everything you might want to know about the game and missing nothing out.
No bonus is available
T-Rex might have gone for some good bonus features, but there is nothing of the kind included here.
The free spin round is a bonzer experience though
Not if you’re a dinosaur, but for you, it’s good news. To get there, just look for three or more of those dinosaur eggs scattered around. You can then select every egg to find out the contents. Each one holds some free games, with a maximum of 10 inside each. That makes the maximum total possible an amazing 50 games.
The wild T-Rex may roam onto the reels during these games. However, on this occasion, he eats all the other dinosaurs unfortunate enough to be on the reels at the same time. Good news for you though because he’ll stay in those positions as a wild too.
You should also look out for more dinosaur eggs because the free spin feature can be retriggered.
The RTP value has not been announced
This means we cannot be certain just where the game falls in the scheme of things. Anything worth 95% and up would be good – the higher the better.
Our rating for the mighty T-Rex pokie
There is plenty to enjoy in this game, not least the free spins with the hungry T-Rex coming into view. He may only appear on one reel of the base game, but he sure does make up for it in the freebies. That earns a 7.5/10 rating from us we guess.
There is a lot of prize potential in the free games
Winners can find prizes in lots of places, but we managed to retrigger the feature, so we got plenty more from the games than we were expecting. There are prizes to be won in the base game too, of course. While most players will go for the jackpot, we all know that is the least likely one to be won.
Playing just for entertainment purposes
This might be enough for you. We liked the demo and played it for a while, for sure. You get the chance to figure out whether T-Rex gives you enough entertainment to try the real option instead.
Playing the real money version of T-Rex
The game has plenty of potential – something we always look for in a paid game. With a penny per line available as the cheapest wager, this game should suit even those with a small amount to play with.
T-Rex on mobile platforms
If you spot a good Aussie-friendly online casino with RTG games in action, you should find T-Rex pokies are included among them. Android and iOS platforms cater for this game, as you’ll soon see.
