There's always room for another online slot that takes a trip to the east, and that's what you'll get with Raging Bull. Created by Pragmatic Play, it's the chance to visit China and enjoy a local celebration. There's plenty on offer, too, with three different prize pot features that could be claimed.
There are some genres that slot developers just love, and the Far East is arguably one of the most popular. Cropping up in titles from pretty much every single studio, there's nothing new about an Oriental theme. However, although it's been done many times before, it's a style that works particularly well with online slots, and there's always room for one more - especially from a high-quality provider such as Pragmatic Play!
The action takes place on a 5x3 board which includes 243 ways to win. This means no traditional paylines but just lining up matching symbols on neighbouring reels from the left to the right. Betting starts at 0.18 but can be increased up to 144.00 per spin. Volatility is medium to high, so you should plan for a reasonably long stay before the bigger prizes start to arrive.
There's absolutely no question about the theme of this game, as it captures the real essence of China. Beautiful golden reels sit in front of a tranquil landscape with silhouettes just visible on the horizon.
On the reels, there are the frequent playing card royals as the low pays, but to keep in line with the theme of the game, they're very stylised. You can win up to x2 for lining up five along a payline. The premium symbols include portraits in four different colours, which pay up to x4.5 with the golden pot as the top value symbol, worth x7 for at least two.
The golden bull appears as the wild on the middle three reels. It can substitute for any of the low or high pays to give you a helping hand to create matches.
Pragnatic Play have a history of including solid bonus features, and this game is no exception.
Land three scatters on the reels, and you'll trigger the Raging Bull Free Spins. Rather than just awarding you with a standard amount, you'll be able to choose what you want from the available seven options:
● Six spins with multipliers of x15, x30 and x40
● 10 spins with x10, x15 or x30
● 13 spins with x8, x10 and x15
● 15 spins and x5, x8 and x10
● 20 spins with x3, x5 and x8
● 25 spins with x2, x3 and x5
● Random number of spins with multipliers chosen from available options
Once you've chosen, every round, a multiplier will be selected from those available for the option you picked.
If you land three or more scatters at any time, you will retrigger the feature. If this happens, you can pick a second option that will take effect at the end of the present round. There is no limit on how many times the bonus round can be retriggered.
There are also three prize pots available which pay out if the reels turn golden. Three reels pay out the minor prize pot, four reels the major prize pot and five reels the grand prize pot. These prize pots can be triggered during the bonus round as well as the base game.
Finally, there is also a Caishen Random Award which can be triggered on any spin. This might give you free spins, or it may take you to a bonus game where you'll need to choose from the lucky golden coins to reveal a prize pot symbol. Match three prize pot symbols, and you'll receive the corresponding prize pot.
Pragmatic Play are a safe pair of hands, and with Raging Bull, they've delivered another solid title. There are lots to keep every player entertained with a range of prize pots to play for, plus the usual bonus features.
