Rocket Reels Review
Explore the outer reaches of our galaxy in Rocket Reels, a 7x7 cluster pays slot developed by Hacksaw Gaming. This epic space-themed slot is all about rocket symbols that take off when 3 or more land on the game grid, removing symbols and leaving a trail of lucrative multipliers in its wake, potentially leading to huge wins! In addition to this players can trigger Free Spins feature which sees players win 10,000x their stake.
Rocket Reels features the same animated art style that a lot of Hacksaw Games have had in the last couple of years, it's very cute and friendly. All of the game's symbols are meteors or distinct planets. Low paying symbols are purple, orange, green, blue and yellow meteors, whilst high paying symbols are all brightly coloured planets. However, the best design element Rocket Reels boasts is without a doubt the rockets and UFOs.
The cheery space-inspired soundtrack was alright, however, it was a bit too cartoonish and felt slightly childish, we do appreciate there's not much else you can do with this kind of slot though.
Ultimately Rocket Reels is your standard 7x7 cluster pays slot. Wins are registered whenever players land a cluster of five or more symbols... The big difference between this slot and others is the Multiplier Rocket which sees symbols removed from the game when the rocket takes off, leaving multipliers in their vacant positions.
In terms of navigating the slot in general, all of the buttons can be found on a black action bar below the game grid. This includes a hamburger menu (where the paytable and game settings can be found), stake selection buttons, a spin button and an autospin button. Players outside of the UK can also utilise the bonus buy feature.
This high volatility slot has a decent RTP of 96.30% and a good maximum win potential of 10,000x the player's stake. The big wins will come by way of the free spins feature the Multiplier Rockets, in particular, Rocket 3 which will leave 25x, 50x, 75x multipliers in its wake.
Rocket Reels is a well-designed game that thoroughly entertained us for the duration of our playthrough. It's a pretty simple slot that manages to get it all right, especially the Rocket Multipliers which had us watering at the mouth whenever they began taking off.
