A new slot machine is coming to online gambling sites powered by the software provider Realtime Gaming. The 25 payline slot machine is titled White Rhino and has an African safari theme that is popular at online gambling sites.
Many of the symbols depict the animals that can be seen in the African habitats. They are the ape, the deer, the elephant, the lion and the ostrich. Visitors going on an African safari are known to carry items like binoculars, camera and water bottles, which also figure as symbols on the reels. The girl and the jeep also figure on the reels. The white rhino, Mount Kilimanjaro and the safari guide are special symbols. These symbols get animated when they participate in winning combinations.
The white rhino is the wild symbol. It appears stacked on the three middle reels. When each of the three central reels has at least one white rhino symbol, the White Rhino feature gets activated. This is a free spins feature that awards up to 30 free spins. The number of free spins awarded is calculated as follows: three spins plus three additional spins per white rhino symbol appearing on the reels.
Mount Kilimanjaro in all its majesty is the scatter symbol. This symbol activates the special Kilimanjaro feature when two or more of them symbols appear from left to right. This feature is somewhat unique and rare in slot machines at online gambling sites. The reels with the Kilimanjaro symbols are held and the remaining reels are made to spin again thrice. Any improved scatter combinations are paid out and are held for the remaining spins.
The safari guide awards 10 free spins when three or more of the symbols appear scattered on the reels. During these free spins the white rhino symbol triples the payouts. This Guide feature can be retriggered.
Another highlight of White Rhino slot machine is the set of two randomly triggered progressive jackpots. Other features in the slot machine include auto play and turbo mode. The White Rhino slot game is scheduled to go live at Realtime Gaming online gambling sites like Bodog.com and LuckyRed.com.
