Graphics & Sound
As usual, Net Entertainment is known for its great quality of graphics and sound in their popular line of video slots. You will see two nicely drawn anime-like characters holding fireworks on both the left and right corners of the screen. The symbols are thoroughly detailed and you can see all of them clearly without straining your eyes. The overall graphic design of Wild Rockets displays varying colors of green, yellow, brown, blue, orange, red, pink – which are actually the best colors to see when you are watching a fireworks show!
Wild Rockets has nice sound effects such as bangs, squeals, whizzes, and swishes made by different kinds of fireworks being lighted up and sent to the sky every time you win. The changing background scenery, from daytime to nighttime or vice versa, will really astound you. As soon as you hear the sounds of fireworks being lighted up when you win coins and free spins, you can’t help but smile and “mentally” jump for joy! With its extraordinarily unique 720-ways-to-win per spin and reel pattern of 3x4x5x4x3 symbols, Wild Rockets is without doubt a fun and exciting online video slot game that is definitely worth your while.
The regular symbols are the card deck symbols which are 9, 10, J, Q, K and Ace; other symbols include firework types such as the red bloom fountain firecracker, the orange spinner wheel firecracker, yellow smiling smoke bomb firecrackers, three purple bottle rockets, and the blue cluster of rockets.
The Wild Symbol is the Wild Rockets (you can easily see it labeled “Wild”), which is actually exciting when you manage to hit them. You will really enjoy the graphics and sounds when you get the Wild Symbol as you will see small rockets shooting up and down the reels, and when you hear the animated explosions, you will see that these rockets are turning the other symbols above and below them into additional Wild Symbols! The wild symbol consists of 3 tiny red rockets and they only appear on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th reels. Please note that the Wild Symbols can turn any symbol above and below it on the same reel into Wild symbols, with the exception of Scatter symbols.
The Scatter Symbol is a box filled with blue, green and purple rockets. If you hit 3 of the Scatter symbol, you are awarded 10 Free Spins; if you hit 4, you are awarded 20; if you hit 5, then you are awarded a load 50 Free Spins!
There is no Gamble Feature in this game.
The Bonus Feature, triggered when you hit 3 or more Scatter Symbols (box filled with blue, green and purple rockets), awards you with Free Spins. If you hit 3, you will be instantly awarded 10 Free Spins. If you hit 4, you are then awarded with 20 Free Spins. If you hit 5, you are awarded 50 Free Spins! Wild Rockets is truly generous with their Free Spins bonus!
Whenever your Free Spins are triggered, you will be then transported to the outside of the fireworks warehouse, and the background of the game changes. Each time you win, you will be treated to a big fireworks show in the sky! The higher the wins you get, the fireworks get bigger and bigger!
When the Wild Rockets Free Spin Bonus Feature game is over, you are taken back to the regular Wild Rockets slot game (inside the fireworks warehouse) and your Free Spin wins are added to your total win.
Wild Rockets has 5 reels where you can win on as many as 720 ways. When the reels stop, the combinations of symbols along each enabled payline are checked by the computer. The minimum bet is 0.01 coins and the maximum bet is 0.50 coins per line. There are actually no bet lines.
Wild Rockets also has a nice Autoplay function wherein players can set the number of rounds. By tweaking the Advanced Settings menu, they can even choose to customize their Autoplay to “Stop” if: they win, if free spins are won, if a single win exceeds a certain amount they specify, or if the cash increases/decreases by a certain amount they specify. When everything is all set, they just select the number of rounds to let them play automatically. Even if they have already set, for example, 25 rounds to play automatically and would like to stop it at any time, they can simply click the Stop button – it’s a plain yet still a pretty handy option.
