Rocky Video Slot review
Rocky is a Playtech video slot with 5 reels and 25 paylines. Based on the iconic movie series starring Sylvester Stallone, it comes with 3 great features. It has a 10,000 coin jackpot which is activated by getting 5 Rocky Wild symbols across the reels. The slot caters to all players with as little as 25p a spin to as much as £125 a spin.
Firstly, let’s look at the Knockout Bonus feature which is triggered the White and Red boxing gloves on reels 1 and 5 (respectively). The gloves have the word ‘BONUS’ on them. You then have to choose an opponent for Rocky to fight – you have to choose between Apollo Creed (Master of Disaster), Ivan Drago (Siberian Bull) and Clubber Lang (Southside Slugger).
Then Rocky and the chosen opponent fight in the ring for 10 short rounds. Every round won by Rocky will award you with 3 times your stake. You will notice that all fights end with Rocky knocking out his opponent. If he does this before the 10th round, all subsequent rounds are deemed a win. So in total, you can win 30 times your stake.
Then there’s the Rocky feature where if you spell Rocky, you will win 5 times your stake – simple. The letters must appear from left to right though. Furthermore, this feature can be triggered during the Free Spins Bonus game too. This is activated by getting 3 or more Italian Stallion Rocky scatter symbols. If you get 3, you will receive 15 free spins, 20 free spins if you get 4 and 25 free spins if you get 5. Furthermore, all free spins come with a 2x multiplier.
You will notice that additional wild symbols will be added to the reels during the free spins making for bigger wins. You can also retrigger more free spins indefinitely if you get 3 or more scatter symbols on the reels. These will be in groups in 15 free spins.
Rocky is an entertaining slot game with great bonus features. It’s a medium variance slot and despite you can get decent wins in the features, it doesn’t stand up to other Playtech slots such as Sultan’s Gold or any of the Marvel titles. I love the clips from the classic film but you can see footage from many branded slots nowadays like Microgaming’s Jurassic Park.
