Rocketing to the TopRocket Returns is that rare beast: a really innovative, original game that is also really simple and straightforward to play. It’s one of the most unusual free online slots that we have to offer you here at Online Slots NZ. It’s available online, on your mobile and on your tablet, so you can enjoy this little beauty wherever you are! In fact, developers Bally designed this particular game with mobile playing in mind, as you will soon see.
Simply unusualUnlike most slots games, Rocket Returns consists of nine hexagonal single window reels arranged in a 1-2-3-2-1 formation. When you press Play, each single window reel spins until it lands on one of five prize symbols or a special symbol. Unlike nearly every other slot, there are no paylines. Instead, match from four to nine symbols on any reels and claim a prize. There are only five basic symbols, which is also unusual in a slot game these days. You can find the Blue 7, the Orange 7, the Triple Bar, Double Bar and Single Bar symbols. These will pay out various amounts.
On the moneyThe money starts with the Single Bars. They will pay out up to 30 times your original stake if nine of them appear. The top prize for nine Double Bars is 50 times your initial bet, nine Triple bars will net you 100 times your stake, and either of the Sevens (the blue or the orange) will reward you with 200 times the amount you initially bet. Betting is easy because players don’t have to decide on the number of paylines they want. Instead, you choose the amount you want to bet on all nine window reels and away you go!
Going WildIn addition to the five basic symbols, Rocket Returns has a Wild Symbol in the form of a red stick of dynamite with its fuse lit. When this symbol shows up, it can substitute for other symbols, increasing your chance of winning a prize. It will also bring with it an extra multiplier, so not only is your initial bet multiplied, but your winning amount can also increase!
Bonus GamesRocket Returns is not overloaded with special features. In addition to the Wild Symbol, it offers you free games whenever the red-and-white striped Rocket appears. If this lands on window reels 1, 5, or 9 it will trigger free games for you. One Rocket will get you one free game, two Rockets will get you two free games, and three rockets will earn you five free games.
Looking good (in a retro kind of way)The whole point of Rocket Returns is its simplicity and speed. This is reflected in the graphics, which deliberately bring to mind old-school arcade games like Space Invaders. Whenever you win, fireworks light up the screen, and the soundtrack is an upbeat, electrical music track that brings to mind ‘80s school discos. This is a fun, quirky game that is perfect for playing on mobile and desktop. It’s simple, unusual and very, very playable!
