|What’s Hot||What’s Not|
The Rocky sports drama movie first made it to our screens in 1976 starring Sylvester Stallone as Rocky Balboa, the uneducated charming Italian – American debt collector / club fighter that lives the American Dream to the fullest and makes his way to the World Heavyweight Championships. The movie was such a hit that it spawned 7 further movies, the latest being ‘Creed’, in 2016.
Rocky Balboa is a hero in many eyes, Rocky signifies that dream that we all have, and the hope that with determination and no fear, everything in life is somehow possible. After binge watching the seven movies in a weekend, here we are telling you all about the slot machine that Playtech have developed in homage of Stallone’s character, Rocky the slot machine is here; overflowing with wilds and featuring some of the movies main characters.

Bonuses and Rewards
We loved the fact that all the bonus rounds that the slot machine offers are all centred and focused around Rocky. Another fact to point out is the fact that the game quite often awards bonus rounds, more brownie points for Playtech!
Let us start by talking to you about the first bonus round that is entitled the Knockout Bonus. Trigger this bonus by simply landing the white boxing glove on your reel 1 and the red boxing glove on your 5th reel. Once you manage that, you will have to fight in a 10 round match with Rocky’s opponent. Manage to come out alive from all the rounds and you walk away with a cool cash prize.
You awarded free spins by landing 3 or more Italian Stallion scatter symbols anywhere on your reels. Landing 3 will award you 15 free spins, 4 will grant you 20 free spins, whilst 5 scatter symbols will see you spinning a total of 25 free spins plus an additional multiplier of 2x on all your winnings. And if you feel like additional free spins, land more scatters, as the bonus round can be re-triggered at anytime during the free spins round.
And finally, a significant feature that is worthy of an Oscar nomination, there is a cool of 5x your bet award if you manage to land the letters R,O,C,K,Y on your reels from left to right. Not easy to land, but in Rocky Balboa style ‘’what is the point of living average. And living average you shall not as landing the letters will award you big coin amounts!
