Watch out, this Rocket Fellas Inc mobile slot by Thunderkick, with its 5 reels and 30 paylines full of dwarves and gems is surprisingly hard work, but very rewarding.
Set against a backdrop of mines, carts and pickaxes, this fantasy slot by Thunderkick looks great. You have four distinctive characters, each standout by colour over the 4 rows of symbols, and gems making up the low paying symbols.
It’s pretty enough, but the base game is a little slow and the theme, whilst fun, isn’t quite as stand out as (say) the Astro Legends slot from Foxium. So what’s keeping you playing?
What you don’t get is big wins every time you trigger the Rocket Fellas bonus games.
Namely, because they trigger so often they are as likely to pay out 10x your bet as 100 times your bet – or more.
This is a surprisingly volatile Thunderkick slot game, which we don’t see often, and that’s thanks (in part) to the rocket feature.
The rocket symbol on reel one will turn any barrel symbol on the same row into a wild. This is particularly effective during the free spins because those barrel wilds will now stay sticky till the end of the round.
To make it even more interesting, any other barrels on the same reel as the sticky wild will now also turn wild (but not sticky).
It sounds far more complicated than you might think when you consider that all it means is that you could end up with a feck ton of wilds during the bonus games.
Sticky wilds with rockets, normal wilds, extra wilds, it’s a wild symbol palooza! And it’s so much fun.
It stops being fun if you can’t catch those rockets and sticky wilds, making it more frustrating than anything else. We played for 40 minutes and go nothing, 5 minutes more and we got 300 times our bet.
Would this Rocket Fellas slot review be different if we hadn’t played those extra 5 minutes? Maybe.
