Rex Slot Game Explained for Internet Real Money Casino Players

Rex is a Novomatic online slot based on the popular series Inspector Rex which was aired from 1994 to 2004.  The series returned in 2008 and was directed by an Austro-Italian production team.  Rex is the main character of the series and is a German Shepherd police dog who together with his partner help to fight crime.


Rex has 5 reels and 40 paylines.  Rex is the main symbol in the game and has the highest payout of 1000 coins if 5 appear on the reels.  The other symbols include the police car and helicopter which both payout 400 coins for 5, the gun and handcuffs are worth 240 coins for 5 and the sandwich will payout 200 coins for 5.  The playing card symbols offer a lower payout with the Ace and King paying out 160 coins for 5, the Queen and Jack are both worth 120 coins for 5 and the Ten and Nine will payout 100 coins for 5.

How to Play

Rex has a minimum bet of 0.02 and a maximum bet of 200 at the best online casino sites.

Rex has an autoplay option which allows players to spin the reels automatically after selecting their paylines and bet.  The autoplay option can be stopped at any time during the game.  By clicking the paytable button players can view the symbols and their payouts as well as information about the free spins and all of the possible winning combinations.  Players can select how many paylines they would like to activate by clicking the lines button and the bet\line button is to choose how much to bet on each line.  The game settings may vary slightly depending on which casino is being played at.

If there is a win on the payline, a siren will sound and the symbols will animate.

Play Rex for Free

Most online casinos will offer Rex in demo or free mode.  This means that players can play Rex without betting any real money while enjoying the features of the game and familiarising themselves with the symbols and betting options.

The animations are excellent and players will have many opportunities to win during the free spins round.

Wild Paw Print

The paw print is the wild symbol and will substitute for the other symbols except the scatter to create winning combinations.  The wild and scatter symbols will only appear on reels 1, 3 and 5.

Siren Scatter

The scatter symbol is the police siren and 3 or more of these will activate the free spins and players will receive 16 free spins.  During the free spins round the sandwich will transform into Rex which will offer more winning combinations.

Gamble Option

After each winning spin players will be given the option of activating the gamble feature or taking their win.  To select this feature players must click the gamble button and they will be taken to a different screen.  During this round players must try to guess the colour of the playing card, either red or black. They must click on the red or black option.  If players guess correctly they can double their win, but if they guess incorrectly they will lose their winnings and return to the game.  There is no strategy involved in this feature.
