If you’re a big fan of the Rocky series, it’s nostalgia at its finest. Just by looking at the loading page, I get to listen a sample theme of Burning Heart from the fourth Rocky soundtrack. Playtech’s Rocky slot game features the titular character, Rocky Balboa, Adrian Balboa, Apollo Creed, Clubber Lang, and Ivan Drago. If you manage to line up the reels of the characters, you’ll get to see clips of the highlights of those characters.
Moreover, the bonus game where you’ll get to choose your opponents is fantastic! Not only you’ll get to have more cash, you’ll get to see the highlights of each of their fights. Of course, the clips will correspond to how the game randomly chooses who gets to win after every round. In other words, if you win, you’ll see the clip of Rocky’s memorable comeback knockdowns.
However, if you haven’t watched Rocky I to IV, you can’t appreciate the game’s theme. Also, the game play doesn’t have a variety of features as compared to other Playtech games. Sure the 10,000 payout from the jackpot is good like any other slot machine, but if I play to simply gamble then I’d take every chance to get more money, which the game lacks. Overall, I find the Playtech’s Rocky slot just between satisfactory and good.
