Ready yourself to enter the ring as Rocky Balboa, the Italian Stallion, and score some nasty jabs and knockouts on your path to championship glory and walk out of the ring with big prizes for your troubles. The Rocky slot is based on the first Rocky film, which won an Academy Award and has since spawned multiple sequels. Playtech has to thank for reviving the series, as the game features icons based on the actors from the movies. Playtech is recreating the Rocky brand through a video slot since Rocky Balboa is, without a doubt, one of the most revered characters on cinema and because most of us were devastated when the film series ended in 2006.
Tips for hooking the Rocky slot machine
Playtech’s standard fare, the Rocky slot machine has five reels and up to 25 win lines.
Rocky Balboa faces off against Apollo Creed, Ivan Drago, and Clubber Lang as his wife Adrian plays a pivotal part in guaranteeing large wins for her man.
It should come as no surprise that the Rocky icon is the game’s wild symbol, capable of replacing any other regular symbol excluding the scatter. When five Rocky symbols appear on an active payline, the player is awarded a massive 10,000 times their wager.
A Rocky silhouette with “Italian writing” around it serves as the game’s scatter symbol and is responsible for activating the free spins bonus round. If you get five of these anywhere in view on the reels, you’ll win 100 times your wager. Free games of 15, 20, or 25 will be awarded if you land 3, 4, or 5 of the Italian Stallion scatter symbols. The free spins bonus round also features the Rocky Wilds.
Instead of the usual Ace through 10 playing cards, Playtech depicted low-value symbols with letters that spell out ROCKY.
Modifiers exclusive to the Rocky machine
ROCKY: We really liked the ROCKY feature, which is triggered by spelling out “ROCKY” from left to right across adjacent reels regardless of payline. The payout for this feature is 5 times the player’s total bet.
When you get three or more Italian Stallion symbols, you’ll activate the boxing free spins bonus. Three scatter symbols award 15 free spins, four scatter symbols award 20, and five scatter symbols award 25. During this bonus round, all wins are doubled and wild symbols depicting Rocky appear on the reels.
Knockout Bonus: Throw down the ultimate blow in the ring and get incredible rewards. If on the same spin you get a white boxing glove on reel one and a red boxing glove on reel five, you’ll activate this bonus round. You can choose to battle Apollo Creed, Ivan Drago, or Clubber Lang in a 10-round bout in the ring thanks to this feature. Relax while brief Rocky movie clips determine your victory or defeat. In classic Hollywood style, cash rewards are given out to the feature winners.
Rocky Wild has a large betting spread. You can use up to ten coins with values between C$0.01 and C$5. You can wager anywhere from C$0.25 up to C$1,250. Although there is no progressive jackpot in this game, the fixed jackpot of 10,000x your total bet is more than enough to make up for it whenever you hit 5 Rocky Wilds on adjacent reels.
