All wins are calculating using the multipliers listed below and your total bet amount, with only the highest pattern for each spin paid.
First up is the bonus symbol, which is the Red Arrow, and this pays at the rate of x1 for matching three or more on the reels. This also triggers the Free Spins feature, as we will find out later on in this article.
Next up are the five main game symbols that create your winning combinations. As mentioned, these pay as a multiplier of your total bet:
- 1 Bar (Green): four = x1, five = x2, six = x4, seven = x7, eight = x15, nine = x30.
- 2 Bar (Purple): four = x1, five = x2, six = x5, seven = x10, eight = x25, nine = x50.
- 3 Bar (Yellow): four = x1, five = x2, six = x5, seven = x25, eight = x50, nine = x100.
- Orange 7: four = x1, five = x5, six = x20, seven = x35, eight = x55, nine = x200.
- Blue 7: four = x1, five = x5, six = x25, seven = x50, eight = x100, nine = x250.
So as you can see, some rather joyous wins are there for the taking!
Rocket Returns offers a few additional extras to help whet the appetites of players. The wild symbol, for example, appears in reel 5 and will boost wins with a x1, x2 or x3 multiplier, and substitutes for all other symbols apart from the bonus to help those paying combinations to keep on coming.
The bonus symbol, should it appear on reels 1, 3 and 9, will fire up the Free Games bonus feature. Here you will be handed five freebies with which to do some damage on the new set of reels, with a multiplier of x1, x2, x3 or x5 assigned to each free game.
This bonus feature can be re-triggered too for the ultimate in prize-winning potential, with one bonus symbol delivering a single additional free spin, two bonus symbols earning a double freebie and three bonus symbols rewarding players with a quintuple of freebies. All the fun and excitement ends when you have no free spins left in the locker.
So that’s a little insight into Rocket Returns, and when you load up the game and see its unfamiliar reel formation you will be glad you read this guide.
The most important thing is to consider it like you would any other slot game. Okay, so normally you would have 15 positions to work with (five reels x three positions on each), and as such it can be harder to pick up the wins here.
But that being said, there are only five main game symbols in Rocket Returns to work with, and in that sense there is less traffic on your reels. The Bonus, while being quite stingy in its outright prizes, does trigger the Free Spins game; and here, while the number of freebies dished out is hardy generous, is a great opportunity to accumulate some further winnings. The potential to scoop a x3 multiplier for any wins bumped up by a wild should also not be forsaken.
Rocket Returns is definitely a game that will appeal to players who fancy something that follows a slightly different template to the norm.
