Rocky Slot Machine
Join Rock Balboa as he brawls his way to the top of the global boxing rankings. It’s none stop action, with all the Italian Stallion’s toughest opponents represented.
The bonus rounds here are particularly enjoyable. You must select one of the champ’s famous adversaries (Clubber Lang, Ivan Drago, or Apollo Creed) and are then treated to cinematic clips from the movie composed into a mock title fight. It’s exciting stuff indeed.
For sheer thrills, and staying true to the Rocky franchise, we think the Rocky slot machine is one of the best around.

- Great bonus features taken right from the legendary movie franchise.
- Massive main game jackpot.
- True to original content of the movies.
- Not everyone knows, and loves the Rocky movies as much as we do. It’s hard to imagine how the game would be received for those who aren’t fans of the original franchise.
The highest jackpots in the main game are all characters from the Rocky movies. Hitting five-of-a-kind of any of them will pay the following:
- Rocky (wild symbol) = 10,000x the coin value.
- Apollo Creed = 1,000x the coin value.
- Ivan Drago = 800x the coin value.
- Clubber Lang = 500x the coin value.
- Adrian Balboa, or Paulie Pennino = 300x the coin value.
One of the areas in which the Rocky slot really shines is its bonus features. There are a couple available and they really add to both the enjoyment factor and the overall feel of the game.
Landing three, four, or five “Italian Stallion” scatter symbols anywhere on the screen during the main game will win either 15, 20, or 25 free games respectively. All free spins are played with a generous 2x multiplier too, and there are additional “wild” symbols added to the reels. What’s more, the free games bonus can be retriggered indefinitely by landing three or more scatter symbols during free spins.
Our favourite feature of the Rocky slot machine has got to be the Knockout Bonus. By landing the white and red gloves on the first and last reel simultaneously, players will trigger the feature.
First, they must choose an opponent to battle against. Following this, a simulation of a ten-round match occurs, using actual footage from the movie to mock up an original bout between Rocky and his foe. After each round, there is of course a round winner and for every time Rocky is victorious, players receive a cash prize. If the opponent takes a round, no prize is awarded. All matches will end with a knock out in Rocky’s favour and this returns players to the main game with whatever prizes they might have won up to that point.
Spelling “ROCKY” using the lesser value symbols will award players with an instant prize of 5x the total bet. Win lines are irrelevant for this feature but the letters must appear in the correct order on consecutive reels from left to right. It’s good to know that this little bonus can be won in both the main game, and the free games feature.
Finally, there’s a simple gamble game that players can bet their winnings on any single spin using. After a win, click the gamble button next to spin, and you’ll be presented with a playing card and red and black options. Guess the colour of the card correctly to double your original winnings. You can continue to double up until you reach £1,000. Using the collect button at any point will return you to the main game.
In addition to the main character symbols, there are also some that pay smaller prizes. These lower value symbols are represented by the letters “R”, “O”, “C”, “K”, and “Y”. Hitting five-of-a-kind of each will pay as follows:
- R = 250x the coin value.
- O = 200x the coin value.
- C = 150x the coin value.
- K, or Y = 100x the coin value.
On the Rocky slot machine, players are given utmost control over the way they distribute their money across the reels. They can choose the number of lines bet on (between one and twenty-five), the amount bet per line (between one and ten coins), and the value of each coin (between 1p, and £5).
This means, with all values set to the minimum, the lowest possible bet is just 1p, and the highest is a massive £1,250 per spin.
What We Think
All told, the Rocky slot machine from Playtech is fantastic. It’s a fond retrospective look at one of the greatest movie franchises of all time, and pays more than sufficient dues to the original subject matter. Offering such a large maximum bet, it’s ideal for all bank rolls, and the bonus features really bring the game to life.
This one is certainly up there with the best around.
