Wild Rockets Slot Game
Wild Rockets is a slot where you are guaranteed fireworks in more ways than one. On the reels you’ll find a series of different fireworks symbols, including firecrackers, Catherine wheels and rockets.
In comparison to the majority of other online slots, this game has a unique setup – with the reels in a diamond shaped setup. You can win both ways and you’ll also find the all-ways system in play, ensuring a great many more ways you can win. The free spins feature is the highlight of the game, where the number of spins can (just like the fireworks) go sky high!
How to Win on Wild Rockets
To win on this NetEnt designed slot you’ll need to land three or more symbols on consecutive reels starting on either the left or right hand side. The symbols can be in any position on the reels (unlike your more traditional win lines) and you’ll also find that you’ll be paid from both left to right and from right to left.
The highest paying symbol shows the red firecrackers and five in a row will pay 250 coins. The orange Catherine Wheel is next on the pay table and pays 125 coins, while yellow ‘bombs’ are worth 100 coins. Purple and boxed blue rockets complete the fireworks symbols and pay 75 and 50 coins respectively, while the playing card symbols from 10 to Ace are the lowest paying, each worth 30 coins as a top prize.
The wild symbol has a sparkling red background and shows three rockets. This symbol only appears on reels 2, 3 and 4 and will substitute for any other symbol apart from the free spins scatter symbol. You’ll notice that the three rockets on the wild will either point to the sky or to the ground. When a wild lands, the three rockets will now fire in the direction they are pointing and move across the reels, turning all the symbols it passes wild. For example, if the wild was to appear at the top of reel three while pointing downwards, it will move across the entire reel and turn it completely wild.
The scatter symbol shows a box containing four green and purple rockets. Land three scatters and you’ll win double your stake and gain 10 free spins. Land four and an immediate prize of 20x your stake is yours, as well as an impressive 20 free spins. However, the big prizes come your way if you manage to hit 5 scatters. Here you’ll win 200x your total stake and be awarded an incredible 50 free spins.
Fireworks Display Design
As you play Wild Rockets you’ll find two characters in view throughout. To the left of the reels is a spiky haired boy holding a rocket, complete with firecrackers wrapped around his neck. A girl in dungarees stands to the right, more firecrackers in her hand. The pair of them look ready for a night of explosive action and this is where you come in when you hit spin! The slot has a dark background to it, which works perfectly when the bright fireworks light up the reels. The game has a nice range of sound effects, especially when the wild symbol appears and the rockets take off.
This five reel slot has a very unusual reel configuration. Reels 1 and 5 show just 3 symbols when the reels come to a stop, reels 2 and 4 show 4 symbols while the middle reel 3 has five symbols. Due to the slot paying both ways, you’ll actually have 720 ways to win at each and every spin, although thankfully you won’t have to pay 720 credits, each spin coming at the cost of 50 credits. To set the total stake you’ll choose both the bet level (between 1 and 4) and the coin value (between 1c and 50c) making for a total stake that ranges between just 50c all the way up to $100.
If you like slots that play differently from the norm, Wild Rockets might just be perfect. The unusual reel setup in combination with the all-ways winning system makes for a unique game as it is, if you throw in the fact that it also pays both ways and this is a game that won’t be beat for originality. The wild symbol rockets also give the game an added dimension, while the number of free spins can become huge. Put all these factors into a melting pot and what comes out is an exciting and unpredictable game that will keep your attention.
