Wild Rockets Review
|Pay Lines:||720 ways|
|Our Rating:||3.9 / 5|
Taking fireworks and pyrotechnics as its theme, Wild Rockets is an innovative slot which includes a number of interesting features. Our full review will discuss these in depth, along with the game’s top jackpot, paytable information and betting limits.
Wild Rockets is a slot which does away with traditional paylines and instead has 720 different ways to win. This means that matching symbols in any position on three or more reels consecutively from left to right results in a coin win.
The ultimate size of that win is determined by multiplying the paytable value of the symbol combination by the number of those symbols appearing on each of the reels making up the combination.
The most valuable combination in the game, for instance, is when at least one firecracker symbol appears on each of the five reels.
That combination has a paytable value of 250 and can therefore result in a top jackpot of 180,000 coins if the symbol were to appear in every position on the reels (250 x 3 symbols on reel one x 4 on reel two x 5 on reel three x 4 on reel four x 3 on reel five).
Thanks to the game’s win both ways feature, however, any five symbol combination pays double and that means a top jackpot of 360,000 coins. At the highest possible coin value of 50p, then, the game’s top jackpot is worth £180,000.
Wild Rockets is a slot with just two special symbols in the shape of its Wild and its Scatter.
Wild Symbol – the Wild can appear on reels two, three or four, substitutes for all symbols apart from the Scatter and always goes towards making up the most valuable bet way possible. What’s more, wilds also turn any symbols above or below them on their reel into additional wilds, dependent upon the direction of the rockets appearing on the symbol.
Scatter Symbol – the Scatter symbol has two main functions. Firstly, if three or more appear anywhere on the reels it results in a coin win equal to the current bet level multiplied by the amount stipulated in the paytable. Secondly, three or more of the symbols also works to trigger a number of free spins as set down in the paytable.
Those free spins are played at the same bet level and coin value as the spin which activated them and can themselves generate additional free spins.
The most valuable Wild Rockets symbol is the firecracker symbol and the paytable value for that symbol appearing at least once on each of the five reels equals 250. That means that a player’s winnings for achieving that five symbol combination is determined by multiplying 250 by the number of times the firecracker symbol appears on each of the reels.
If the symbol were to appear on each and every position of the reels, therefore, a jackpot of 360,000 coins results thanks to the win both ways feature. This figure is determined by multiplying 250 by three, four, five, four and three for the number of symbols and then by two for win both ways.
The next most valuable symbol within the game is the Catherine wheel symbol and a five reel combination of that symbol is worth 125 on the paytable. That makes the maximum possible jackpot for that symbol combination exactly half that of the most valuable symbol (i.e. 180,000 coins).
Wild Rockets players have the choice of six different coin values between 1p and 50p and four separate bet levels which each add an extra 50 coins to the player’s stake per spin.
If a player wishes to bet the minimum possible, therefore, they can set a bet level of one and a coin value of 1p to produce a total stake of just 50p. If they want to bet a maximum of £100, meanwhile, they can select a bet level of four and a coin value of 50p.
What We Think
Whether you’re a player who likes innovative features or one more interested in the size of a game’s top jackpot, Wild Rockets is likely to offer you a gaming experience that you will enjoy.
Whilst the slot doesn’t have any real bonus games, interesting features such as win both ways, expanding wilds and free spins do create the kind of immersive gameplay experience that players like to see from a game.
The ultimate maximum jackpot of 360,000 coins, which can be worth a total of £180,000 at the right coin value, is also comparatively generous and compares favourably with many other slots on the market.
Decent controls over betting amounts, too, mean that Wild Rockets is an excellent all around slot game which most players are likely to really enjoy.
