Realtime Gaming's T-Rex slot game is played on five reels and has 25 pay lines. As with many RTG slots, you can choose the number of pay lines you would like to play before each spin. The slot has wild substitute symbols, scatters, and multipliers. There is also a free spins feature available, along with a randomly triggered progressive jackpot.
Daniel van Wyck, the Springbok Casino Manager, commented on South African achievements. After looking into the various inventions listed on the site, he said: "I find these stories about brilliant South African really inspiring! I'm impressed by what our country has contributed to the world."
South African Inventions
There are some great South African inventions, some of which you might love more than others. You can enjoy a nice hot cup of rooibos tea, which comes from an indigenous South African plant or you can get really loud with a Vuvuzela!
The first heart transplant in which a human donor heart was placed into another human was done by Christiaan Barnard. In 1972, Allan Cormack, who was born in South Africa, collaborated with a British engineer, Godfrey Hounsfield, creating computed tomography, now known as the CT or CAT scan. Both these medical advances have had a huge impact on modern medicine today.
Pratley Putty, invented by Johannesburg born George Montague Pratley, has held many things together ever since. Pratley Plastic Putty was developed in the Pratley lab in the 1960s, and has helped hold together a space module that landed on the moon. Other great inventions include thin-film solar module technology that makes solar power more affordable, and you can also get a great fully functioning oil-can guitar.
