Free Rex Slot Machine Game

I have to admit that I have never seen an episode of ‘Inspector Rex’, the TV show which this slot takes as its theme. The star of this slow – a German Shepard dog called Rex, is also the star of this 5-reel video slot from Novomatic. While you will not get too much in the way of drama from the slot, you will get the chance of some big wins during the free spins round, and enjoy stacked symbols in the base game along with plenty of paw-print wilds.

I found that the wins were on the larger side with the Rex slot game. You’ll go for a while with few wins, before the multiple hits come along at once. There are 40 win lines crossing the 5 reels, which gives plenty of opportunity to take advantage of the wild symbols and the stacked symbols which can cover entire reels.

How to Win on Rex

A portrait of Rex himself is the highest paying symbol. This will pay 1000 coins for 5 of a kind, with 200 coins for 4, 80 for 3 and 8 coins for just 2 from the left. There is also a police car and a helicopter, each in a red circle (worth 400 coins for 5) and a gun and handcuffs with a glowing purple surround which pay 240 coins for the full set. Playing card symbols then make up the remaining symbols.

There are two more symbols on the Rex slot reels, a paw print and a police car flashing light. The paw print is a wild symbol. This will substitute for any of the regular symbols, and comes stacked on the reels – which will often enable several wins at the same time. The light is a scatter symbol, 3 of them will pay 200 coins, and will also trigger the bonus game which starts with 16 free spins.


Snack Time with the Rex Free Spins Bonus Game

The first thing you will notice when you start the free spins is that there is a dramatic sound track. I assume this comes from the TV show, it features a piano in the lead with some bass notes backing up. The color of the background also changes from blue sky to orange.

You get 16 spins for free, though can retrigger for 16 more by hitting 3 of the scatter symbols once again.

There is a new symbol on the reels, which looks like a ham roll. When this hits the reels and is capable of making up a win with the Rex symbol, you will see an animation where Rex eats the roll, before it becomes the Rex symbol. This symbol usually appears at the same time as Rex, so you’ll have more opportunities to hit the biggest possible wins.

Design and Setup of the Rex Slot

Rex slot machine game relies heavily on the police type imagery – though around the reels you will see a blue sly. There is a cityscape above, with the Rex logo complete with paw print in between the outlines of skyscrapers. The reels are black with the glowing symbols looking dramatic over them. Rex himself is more of a photo, though most of the symbols are fairly basic in their design compared to more recent slot titles.

Animations are basic, flashing and squares surrounding the winning symbols is all that happens for most wins. The scatter symbols (flashing police lights) will become active when you hit all 3, flashing very realistically. Rex eating the ham role is the best of the animations, though it is only a couple of seconds long.

Background music starts off with the usual Novomatic beeps. When you hit the free spins bonus game you will hear the dramatic Rex soundtrack instead. You will also hear the familiar ticking sound after you win, which alerts you to the opportunity to take a 50-50 gamble with each prize.

There are 40 win lines crossing the 5 by 4 grid of the reels. You can play from 1 coin per line and up, and auto-play is offered as an option.


Overall Experience

It is hard to tell whether the Rex slot is really somewhat dated, or whether it is deliberately trying to recreate a TV show from the past. The game play is certainly fast and smooth (if a little volatile in the wins). The stacked symbols mean that you will often trigger a large number of win lines at the same time – especially when you combine the symbols with the paw print wilds. If you trigger the free spins game you’ll get to see Rex perform some tricks, and hopefully get some bigger wins too!
