Rock 'n' Lock Review
If you are one of those people that loves the rocking 50s and 60s, then Rock 'n' Lock is the slot for you. Journey back to the age of rock 'n roll with greasers, jukeboxes and Cadillacs.
Created by Red Tiger Gaming, this music slot plays on 5-reels with 25 paylines. Throughout the slot, players will find multipliers, bonus rounds and funky wins. Get your rock on with Rock 'n' Lock.
The first thing that jumps out about this slot is the lack of animation in the background. For a slot that's supposed to be 'poppin', there is nothing really exciting going on with the visuals. The background feels like a snapshot of Hollywood in the 1960s with fancy cars ruling the streets but there is no life to the images.
To the right of the screen, there is a door leading to a diner surrounded by posters and classic records. We were hoping that perhaps this would be more groovy or active with animations - but there are not. It certainly feels like this was a quick slot thrown together from Red Tiger Gaming.
On the reels, players will find classic items such as cars, guitars, headphones and a greaser (who looks like James Dean). One of the best things about this slot is the rocking baseline and guitar throughout spins that feel like something Chuck Berry, Elvis Presley or Buddy Holly would rock out to.
Sadly, Red Tiger Gaming is increasingly releasing slots that are barren of unique features. Throughout the base game, it feels like there is nothing exciting that can happen throughout. You are literally just waiting to trigger the bonus round for any form of excitement.
At the bottom of the screen, players will find the paytable, help button as well as the time. Underneath the reels are where the spin button and the bet level can be located.
Like most Red Tiger Gaming slots, the win potential is absolutely shocking with this slot. Expect an under the average RTP of 95.69% which is ridiculous at this point. This is followed by a tragic maximum win of 2,340x stake.
For a slot with a higher RTP, the maximum win would not be bad but it's an insult to players with it both statistics being so low. We suspect that this slot will add in the Red Tiger Jackpot - but the base game players will suffer for this reason. With the jackpot, the slot isn't too bad - but not all slot sites will have it active.
It's just expected that Red Tiger Gaming will end up disappointing players with certain releases. Rock 'n' Lock certainly feels like the slot that goes in between two big releases to fill in the void.
The visuals are not amazing, but they are too terrible either. We found that the music was definitely the most redeeming aspect of this slot. It's an interesting concept for a slot but is just executed poorly by Red Tiger Gaming. Sadly, there aren't many slots like this one if you are a fan of the 50s, so you'll have to put up with Rock 'n' Lock if you are specifically looking for this.
