This Rocket Men slot by Red Tiger Gaming will either horrify you or make you laugh out loud… or, honestly, probably both.
This is a topical mobile slot machine that might be quickly forgotten once Donal Trump is no longer president, or we all look back at in horror for mocking the start of WWIII.
Based on the not so friendly battle of the nukes between Donald and Kim Jong-Un from North Korea, it gives this whole ridiculous situation a properly ridiculous theme.
Here, the two world leaders can appear by the side of the reels, playing golf, nuking small countries, slapping asses, whilst sitting high in their villain lairs where man-eating sharks roam.
And blast is the right word; though quite usual for Red Tiger Gaming phone slots.
On reel 1 you can sometimes get Don to show up. When he does, he will launch golf balls on the screen, destroying symbols and giving you stacks of the same symbols to fall from above, like in Snow Wild and the 7 Features.
When Kim shows up on reel 5, he blasts the reels with extra wild rockets, usually around 2 or 3, but sometimes as many as 5.
These two features keep you company frequently; so often, in fact, you’ll forget that wins without them are negligible.
Things get really interesting if the two ego-maniacs happen to share the screen in this game.
When Kim and Don’s symbols are on screen at the same time, a battle of the wits will start: namely, they will start throwing stuff at each other like petulant toddlers, till one is knocked out.
You then get one of two click-me bonus feature. Don’s is the one you’ll get most often, as you get instant cash wins for every bare bottom you can slap (It makes us feel better to think of these as sexual harassment lawsuit settlement fees he has to pay).
Kim, on the other hand, nukes a vaguely America looking continent for cash prizes, and it’s where we’ve seen potential wins of 100 times our bet.
You can’t take this video slot too seriously, to be honest, but that’s not to say there’s not the occasional serious win.
Mostly it’s about mixing a fun dark theme with great features, how like in the hard to catch Rocket Men free spins you get walking wilds in the form of rockets, slowly moving towards world annihilation.
It’s a typical Red Tiger slot online; easy to play, lots of bonuses, and surprising.
If the theme is a little too on-the-nose for you, the Lucky Little Devil game offers similar fun.

Don's Driving Range: When the Donald Trump scatter symbol lands on reel 1, you trigger the driving range mini-game.
Here, the President will take a hard-earned break and play golf, destroying symbols on the reels.
More symbols will then tumble down from above, creating more wins. He's in no rush, and can easily play 3 or 4 rounds of golf before this feature ends.
Kim's Little Game: When the Kim Scatter lands on reel 5, the Chairman of the Workers' Party of Korea will test his rockets by firing them onto the reels.
This usually lands around 2 to 5 extra wilds.
Kim VS Dom Bonus Games: When the Don scatter lands on reel 1, and the Kim scatter lands on reel 5, they have a very public fight.
One of three things can happen:
The Nuclear Spins: When the battle between Don and Kim lands in a tie you start unlimited free spins.
Here, the world leaders will sit on each side of the reels, and each will have 3 lives.
Randomly, they will send off rockets from their side of the reels, to slowly walk towards the enemy, like in the Pied Piper slot by Quickspin.
Basically, Don sends walking wilds from left to right, whilst Kim sends walking wilds from right to left.
If the rocket wilds meet in the middle of the screen, they cancel each other out, but if they reach the other leader, that leader loses a life.
When one of the two Rocket Men is defeated, the free spin bonus games end.
If (when) the war between the US and North Korea starts up again, expect us to quickly change this 4-star slot review.
Meanwhile, whilst the two world leaders continue to behave like children, and you have a slightly inappropriate sense of humour, you'll find plenty to love in the Rocket Men slot on mobile, including lots of fun features.
We love how they make the theme and bonuses work so seamlessly together, making the characters ridiculous, fun, and kinda endearing (like how they have a little picnic, arm in arm, whilst they watch the world burn after the free spins bonus games).
If this all sounds too convoluted for you, the far simpler Masquerade iPad slot could offer a classier alternative.
