ALL ABOUT ROCKET FELLAS INC SLOT REVIEW
Sweden’s Thunderkick are one of the most creative slot studios on the planet. Their games feature some of the most ‘out there’ content we’ve ever seen – from Pink Elephants to The Rift, via Fruit Warp and Birds on a Wire there really are no comparisons.
So it’s always exciting to get spinning on one of their new releases, and Rocket Fellas Inc is another to treasure. It’s Thunderkick’s final game of 2018 and a great way to end the year, featuring great artwork, slick animations and some satisfying gameplay with transforming symbols, free spins and plenty of wilds and sticky wilds to drive up your wins.
Let’s find out more.
Gameplay, Symbols and Pay Tables
Rocket Fellas Inc. is a 5 reel and 4 row slot with 30 fixed paylines. It’s a mining-themed game, featuring some dynamite-wielding bearded miners. The reel set sits inside a cavernous mine with lanterns and rocks surrounding it.
The low value symbols on the reels are the shiny rock-like gems in the colors of green, yellow, blue and red. The premium symbols are four bearded Rocket Fella miners and a barrel with a target on it which will get you 30x for five on a payline.
The wild here is a mining cart filled with gemstone rocks. It substitutes for all others bar the scatter and also pays out 30x for five on a payline.
Look out as well for the special Rocket Symbol which appears only on reel 1 to deliver wilds into the game and set up more wins.
In this game all symbols can appear stacked on all reels in both the base and bonus rounds.
Rocket Fellas Inc. Features
At the end of a spin watch out for Rockets landing on reel 1.
When they do they transform the symbol they land on into a Wild, as well as any Barrel symbols that appear on the same row as the rocket (and any further Barrels on that reel too). To trigger this the Rocket will fire off across the reels from left to right which looks great!
To trigger the bonus round you’ll need to land three or more Iron Fist scatters on a base game spin. This works as follows:
3 scatters: 10 free spins
4 scatters: 15 free spins
5 scatters: 20 free spins
You can gain more spins in the bonus round by landing 2 more scatters (3 free spins), 3 more scatters (10 spins), 4 more scatter (15 spins) or 5 more scatters (20 spins).
In total Rocket Fellas offers up to 40 free spins in its bonus round.
Sticky Wilds – In the bonus round the Rocket Feature is still active. However, this time any wilds that are created are STICKY.
Hot Reels–In addition, any reel with a sticky wild is now HOT. This means any further barrels to land on it will also transform into wilds. They can become sticky too if they are struck by one of the rockets.
The sticky wilds can give you wins of up to 7,325x which is the top payout on this game.
The Slot Buzz Verdict
Rocket Fellas Inc. is just the kind of slot we love Thunderkick for – jam-packed with entertainment and a great mix of clever and funny! The only drawback of course is that as a high(ish) variance game it can become frustrating as you wait for a bonus round fix to unleash the real action. So be prepared to be patient and if you are you’ll get a lot of enjoyment out of this slot game.
