Who hasn’t heard of Rocky? It’s the film series that’s been mercilessly parodied for the number of sequels that it’s spawned, and now it has its own online slot to go with it. All the characters from the films are there: Clubber Lang (aka Mr T), Apollo Creed, Adwieeeeen (doesn’t quite work in text, but if you’ve seen the film, you’ll know what I mean) and of course Rocky himself.
The slot itself is quite cool. Certain wins trigger short clips from the movie, and I like that instead of card numbers (10, J, Q, K) the non-character icons spell out ‘ROCKY’, which in fact leads to one of the special features – If Rocky is spelt out in order on reels 1-5 you win 5x your bet on that spin.
That’s not the only special feature on this slot – you’ve got both free spins (activated by 3 or more Rocky logos, and these can be reactivated indefinitely if you’re that lucky!) and a bonus game. The “Knockout Bonus” is activated by a white boxing glove on reel 1 plus a red one on reel 5. You get to pick an opponent for Rocky to fight, and for every round Rocky wins, you get cash.
Rocky himself acts as the wild symbol on this slot, though there’s no scatter symbol. The game has both an auto-spins mode (limited to 99 spins) & a gamble feature – based on whether the next card drawn is either red or black. When I played, it seemed to take forever to hit the bonus game. Also, it would be nice to have a quick spins feature for auto play (there was one in options, but it didn’t seem to work when I selected it).
As for the technical details, the slot has 25 paylines , the bet per line varies from $0.01-$50 which results in a maximum bet per spin of $1,250 for those High Rollers out there 😉 In summary, Rocky is a fantastic slot. It’s got great features, and is fun to play – it did seem to take a while to hit some of the features – but that may just have been my bad luck. Why not take a look.
