- Video review
The Rocky slot by Playtech is a great game to play and even though other games on the market are now more advanced in terms of graphics, this one has more than stood the test of time and is still a game which comes very highly recommended.
If you remember the old Rocky films featuring the unforgettable Rocky Balboa, you will love the Rocky slot as it is based on the film in such a way that games like Scarface and Aliens are also based on films of the same name.
Theme and subject
Everything about the Rocky slot will remind you of the noble art of boxing and even if you have not had the pleasure of viewing any of the Rocky films, this slot will appeal to you.
It is a great game to play and even though there are sometimes longish losing runs, it doesn’t really take away from the overall entertainment value of the game and as such, the Rocky slot will appeal to high rollers and recreational players alike.
Symbols and soundtrack
It’s good to see that some originality has been applied to the symbols because instead of the usual ten, jack, queen, king and ace, Playtech have used the letters which spell rocky. R O C K Y and these letters are all heavily decorated with the stars and stripes of the US flag.
There are also a number of symbols which represent the main characters from the film and these are Adrian, Paulie, Ivan, Apollo Creed, Clubber Lank and the main man, Rocky.
The boxing gloves represent the bonus symbols, Rocky is the wild and the famous Italian stallion is the scatter symbol.
The soundtrack sounds like it has been lifted directly from the film because it is ever so impressive and sets the scene perfectly for a slot playing session which will be memorable for all of the right reasons.
The first bonus to talk about is the knock out bonus and this is in effect a mini game which starts when a white boxing glove appears on the first reel and red boxing glove on the fifth reel.
The mini game comprises of Rocky fighting against his opponent over ten rounds and a cash prize is awarded for every round that Rocky wins.
The next bonus occurs when the R O C K Y symbols appear in a horizontal line and this is rewarded with five times your stake.
Then we have the free spins which are triggered when three, four or five of the Italian stallion symbols appear and this will result in fifteen, twenty or twenty five free spins respectively.
There is a multiplier of two applied to all winnings from the free spins and the feature can be re triggered.
Where to play
The Rocky slot is still an extremely popular slot and there are no shortage of online casinos which offer the game.
These casinos usually offer sign up bonuses which can be used to play the Rocky slot but always read the terms and conditions which go hand in hand with these bonuses to make sure you are happy before you get started.
