Fireworks were first made in China over 1000 years ago, made from gunpowder. Potassium nitrate is the most important part of gunpowder and exactly what propels the fireworks into the sky. A fuse is used to light the gunpowder, which ignites to send the firework skyward. Once the fireworks is in the air, more gunpowder inside causes another explosion. Colours are made by burning metal salts, while the bright sparkles in fireworks come from burning small bits of metal, such as iron or steel filings. And these days many sorts of fireworks are lighted on feasts and new year’s celebrations. And like most of the people, also I have a love-hate relationship with fireworks, mainly due to the country I live in, where summers are packed with feasts and fireworks. Nevertheless I do appreciate Netent’s video slot Wild Rockets, although not necessarily because of the fireworks, but mostly because explosive game play to the reels, proving Net Entertainment’s uncompromising determination to offer only the highest quality online gaming experience possible.
Not only the designers at Net Entertainment opted for an explosive theme, they also took a whole different approach regarding the lay-out, with all its consequences. Nothing is normal in this game, and that’s exactly why I like Wild Rockets, despite the fireworks, and just because this is exactly why the Netent video slots are so popular. For that reason I do accept the them, including its rockets and firecrackers. Wild Rockets is one of the games that belongs to the bet way games portfolio also including Dragon Island and Lucky Angler. Wild Rockets though, is the first of Net Entertainment’s online video slots to offer a massive 720 Ways to Win.
Those a bit familiar with the Netent video slots, will notice the four extra symbols directly, changing the complete gameplay. These four symbols are responsible for the 720 Ways to Win, other than the 243 Ways to Win in Ghost Pirates, Victorious, Twin Spin and Alien Robots. And believe me when I tell you that the absence of bet lines, while replaced by 720 Ways to Win, is responsible for quite some fireworks on the reels.
Because there are no bet lines, you don’t have the possibility to reduce these with as a result there’s a standard minimum bet of 0.50. This is a tad more than the average Netent video slot, but you will get a lot in return. And when you think the game isn’t explosive enough, you can always increase the amount of bet levels until the maximum of four have been reached. Combine this with betting coins starting from 0.01 going up to 0.50, which in combination with the maximum amount of bet levels can result in a maximum bet of 100.00.
Not only is Wild Rockets the first video slot designed by Net Entertainment offering 720 Ways to Win, it’s also the first that both literally and figuratively bangs of your screen. Thanks to the theme of course, but also because of the explosive features attached to the game involving a Wild and Free Spins. Let’s start with the explosive Wild feature, the most used feature by Netent and that’s not for nothing. Also in Wild Rockets the Wild symbols are the centre of attention. When Wild symbols appear on the reels they turn every symbol above or below them into additional Wilds, based on the direction of the rockets on the Wild. Wild symbols can only appear on reels 2, 3, and 4, and substitute for all symbols except Scatter symbols. Wild symbols with rockets pointing upwards, turn all symbols on the same reel above into Wild symbols, the same goes for the rockets pointing downwards, turning all symbols on the same reel below into Wild symbols, both creating a heightened sense of win anticipation.
Although I can hardly believe you aren’t convinced yet that Wild Rockets is one of a kind, maybe the Free Spins feature will get you there. This because of the maximum amount of 50 Free Spins this video slot is offering, when five or more Scatters appear on the reels. Four Scatters offer you 20 of these spins, while three Scatters will activate 10 Free Spins. I don’t know, but I think the designers got a bit confused by all those Big Bangs from the rockets and firecrackers, the reason why this video slot is packed with all these explosive features.
