Back in the 1980’s a number of movies came out that climbed their way to cult status. Rocky was one such movie, spawning sequels that carried on even into the 2000’s. Slot developers love to create slots around famous and popular movies, and Playtech has done just this with Rocky the slot.
Rocky is a five reeled online slot with twenty five optional paylines and a coin value that ranges between 0.25 and 125. Rocky is a medium variance slot, which means that it pays out both big and small wins, but the big wins don’t happen that often. This is a slot for both beginners and experienced players alike, due to its second screen bonus round and decent payouts.
Rocky the Movie Theme and Graphics
As this is a movie based mobile slots USA, all of the symbols and graphics in it are theme based. Rocky the movie was about a boxer who beat the odds and became a champion prize fighter. The reels don’t have any background oddly enough; you would expect to see at least a boxing ring. As it is there is only a vague dark colour behind the reels that do show off the symbols to their best advantage. The overall colours for Rocky are red white and blue, representing the American flag. The rest of the slot is minimalistic and has very clean lines. It is an easy slot to understand which adds to its appeal for beginners.
Movie Themed Symbols
As mentioned all the symbols in Rocky the slot are theme based. At the bottom of the range instead of the usual playing card letters we have the five letters that spell out Rocky. These are all done in the red white and blue of the American flag. The higher ranking symbols are characters from the movie, including Rocky himself which is both the games wild as well as the most lucrative symbol in the game earning a player 10 000 coins for five of him in a row.
Fighting Fit Special Features
Rocky has three main features worth mentioning. The first is the games free spins round. This is a pretty standard round that is launched by finding three or more game logo’s across the reels at online casinos Canada. The more scatters that you find, the higher the number of free spins and the higher the multiplier. These free spins can be retriggered infinitely.
The second feature the second screen bonus round. This is launched by finding two boxing glove icons, one white one red, on reels one and five. Here you will be taken to another screen where you will choose an opponent for Rocky to fight. The fight lasts ten rounds, but unfortunately there is nothing a player can do to influence it. The outcome is decided randomly, but you can follow your progress by watching the movie clips that come up which represent each round. Should you make it all the way to round ten, then you receive a 30x your bet multiplier. Should Rocky get a knock out anywhere before round ten, he wins all ten rounds by default.
The last feature is a clever little one using the bottom paying symbols in the game. As each symbol is a letter from the word Rocky, they will pay a player out an extra 5 times their stake should they line up across the reels in order and spell Rocky.
