When it comes to the online pokies loved by boxing enthusiasts throughout the world, there’s none that comes closer to the popularity of Playtech’s Rocky.
The basics of the game
Rocky, the online slot game features 25 pay lines and 5 reels. The music has been picked straight from the popular Rocky series (here’s some more info on the man behind the Rocky’s theme tune). The basic symbols on the reels are the letters of the game’s name – R, O, C, K and Y, each one of them decorated with stripes and starts.
One of the main highlights of the Rocky online slot are its higher value symbols that are the images of several different characters from the Rocky movies, including Apollo Creed, Ivan Drago, Rocky himself, Adrian, Clubber Lang and Paulie.
The wild symbol is the Rocky image, and the scatter symbol is represented by the Italian stallion logo. The bonus symbols are shown by red and white coloured boxing gloves.
ROCKY combination bonus feature

Once you reach this bonus round you’ll get to select Rocky’s opponent and fight him in a 10-round match that always ends with Rocky knocking out the guy.
You win cash prizes only in the rounds that you win in this mini-game. On some occasions, you’d see Rocky knocking out his opponent well before time. When that happens, you’d be paid the prizes for all the unfought rounds as well.
Anytime you get 5, 4 or 3 Italian Stallion scatter symbols on any of the reels, you’d win 25, 20 or 15 free spins respectively. What more, you’d also be awarded a 2x multiplier for every amount you win through the spins. Furthermore, there’s also a chance that you might win more number of free spins if you land more scatter symbols during the free spins.
