Overview Of Rocket Fellas
Rocket Fellas is an explosive new slot from Thunderkick, the theme is based on a diamond mine, watch the Rocket Fellas use their patented Rocket Fist™ to clean out the mine for shiny rocks! From first impressions I’m imagining Wild Rockets crossed with Bonanza, let’s take a look and see how it plays.
Rocket Fellas has a 5 by 4 reel setup with 30 fixed pay lines, there’s one main feature which includes the mini feature from the base game so lets take a look at that first. The rocket symbol can appear anywhere on reel 1 and take between 1 and all 4 spaces up on the reel, when all the reels have stopped the rockets fire across the reels and turn any barrels they hit into wilds, when a rocket and a barrel appear on the same reel, the whole reel turns wild.
Now onto the main feature of the slot which is the free spins round, you unlock this by landing 3 or more scatters in the base game, you can also get an extra 5 spins for 4 scatters or the maximum of 20 spins if you land all 5 scatters, during the feature you can re-trigger the bonus with just 2 or more scatters.
During the feature the main difference is the rockets have now changed into the patented Rocket Fist™! Any barrels that this fist hits on the same reel turns into a sticky wild, so what you really want is loads of barrels to land early with loads of Rocket Fists™ and you could end up with a very nice win. The maximum win indicated from the games manual is 7325x which is far from shabby!
Rocket Fellas Paytable
The pays below are based on a £1 spin and the pay table adjusts with your bet size dynamically to keep it straight forward and to the point, thumbs up for that, however, the green and blue crystal pay a mere 2.5x for a full line!
The yellow crystal pays 3x, the red crystal pays 3.5x, the blue miner pays 7x and the green miner pays 8x, now lets look at the top symbols.
In reverse order we have the yellow miner which pays 12.5x for a 5 of a kind, the ginger miner pays 15x and the barrels and wilds pay double this at 30x for a full line. During the bonus if you got most of the middle of the board covered in wilds you would be looking at each spin paying up to 500x your stake, some spins more and some spins less but that would be how you’d get the max advertised win of 7325x your stake, during my testing my best win was 90x and my worst was 10x so this game definitely has a lot of variance.
Final Thoughts On Rocket Fellas
Rocket Fellas has an RTP of 96.1% and it’s safely in the high variance category as I could see this game wiping out a few balances on a bad day. The graphics and sounds are great and give the game a disco mining feel, Thunderkick have always brought something a bit different to the table and this release fits that bill perfectly, it’s not a game I’ll go out my way to play but it’s also not one I’d avoid, if you fancy giving it a try theres a link to a TGC trusted casino below and as always thanks for reading!
