Rocky is a slot machine based, of course, on the iconic movie series of the same name, featuring Sylvester Stallone. It was a creation of the leading casino games developer Playtech. It is a five reel game, with twenty five pay lines.
Rocky was one of the most famous film series in the history of Hollywood, and the slot game has scenes from the movie appearing whenever you form a winning combination. In the game you will meet all the other colourful and well-known characters from the movie, including his trainers, girlfriend and opponents. You don’t even have to enjoy boxing to enjoy this game.
Features and Benefits
There a number of great features. Players can win a great jackpot when they find five Rocky Wild symbols across the reels. The letters R, O, C, K and Y have replaced the usual playing card icons. Rocky Balboa is the Wild symbol, and as such can replace all other symbols except the Scatters, which are the Italian Stallion symbols.
There is also the Knockout Bonus feature, which is activated with the appearance of both the White and Red boxing gloves on the reels. The gloves have the word Bonus written on them. The player then has to choose an opponent for Rocky to fight, and the player has to decide between Apollo Creed (Master of Disaster), Ivan Drago (Siberian Bull) or Clubber Lang (Southside Slugger). Rocky and his opponent fight in the ring for ten short rounds. Every round that Rocky wins will reward you with three times your original stake. All of the fights will end with Rocky knocking out the challenger. If this happens before the tenth round, all subsequent rounds are counted as wins. So you could end up winning thirty times the amount of your original wager.
The Free Spins Bonus Round
Next comes the Rocky feature. You have to spell the word ROCKY, and then you will win five times your total wager. The letters have to appear from left to right on the reels. This feature can also be triggered while you are playing the Free Spins bonus game. The Free Spins round is activated by three or more of the Italian Stallion Rocky Scatter symbols appearing on the reels. If you land on three of these symbols you will receive fifteen free spins, and if you get four you will win twenty free spins. If five Scatters appear you will be given twenty five free spins. All free spins also come with a multiplier of two times.
Some Additional Symbols
Additional Wild symbols will be added to the reels during the free spins round, which will give you the opportunity for even bigger wins. You can reactivate the free spins round as often as you wish, if you just land three or more Scatters on the reels. Scatter symbols can appear anywhere on the reels and do not need to be on an activated pay line.
Rocky slot machine is an entertaining game, and the bonus features are excellent. It is a medium variance slot game, and will give the player many chances for lucrative wins.
