Rock the Boat Slots

Rock the Boat is a traditional style slot machine with a classic Americana theme: Elvis! If you’re a fan of the King of Rock then this is the slot for you. We’re not entirely sure what boats have got to do with anything, a Jailhouse Rock would make more sense. But with a great Elvis wild and accompanying guitar and Blue Suede Shoes chord sound effects we’re willing to go with Microgaming on this.

This 3 reel, 1 payline slot is yet another classic from this giant game provider. The maximum jackpot here is 4000 coins, which is a little on the low side but obviously if you’re wagering the higher coin values then this could still present some big winnings.

One for the Money, Two for the Show

If Elvis took a trip in a small wooden boat, this slot would be the product of his trip. The logo is literally Elvis in his signature white jumpsuit, mic in hand, posed on a small rowing boat with a lighthouse in the background. We’re slightly bemused, but we like it. The Elvis wild is the main element of the theme, with a white guitar being one of the other symbols. The feature we love most is that every time the reels stop spinning and land on a winning combination, the sound effect is the first two chords of Blue Suede Shoes. You can’t get much more Elvis than that.

Other symbols consist of the traditional Bar, from Any Bar to 3 Bar and a lighthouse to accompany the theme. It’s like a traditional slot machine and Elvis had a baby, although honestly this game takes more from the slot machine tradition than it does from its Elvis theme. If Elvis were still with us, he could justifiably question the games legitimacy. We can’t help but feel they could have injected a little more of the Elvis rock n’ roll spirit into this. Considering the huge amount of Elvis fans out there (he was The King after all) we think if Microgaming produced a slot with a stronger Elvis theme they’d be on to a winner, as NetEnt have been with their Rocks series.

Admittedly, this is a common issue with traditional style slots; they seem to compromise between traditional features such as the original symbols and things which would boost the theme. Traditional style slot games are definitely more constrained in style and function than the newer, modern video slots.

The Technical Stuff

You can play this game in two values; one coin or two coin. Obviously with two coin wagering, your bets will be higher but the winnings are also double those of the one coin mode so it may be worth the extra spend. The coin denominations are 0.25 to 5 and you can bet one or two coins per spin, choosing each time between the one coin and two coin winning potential.

There are a total of 9 winning combinations and the only feature you need worry about is the Elvis wild, which acts as both Wild and a multiplier, potentially quadrupling your winnings when betting two coins. Apart from the one and two coin options and the Elvis wild, it’s easy peasy. The pay table below will explain the potential winnings with the different symbols.

Will It Rock Your Boat?

If you’re either an Elvis fan or like your slot games the old fashioned way, then this game could be for you. While the Elvis elements of the game are a little limited, it definitely has that classic rock n’ roll vibe, echoed in the style of the graphics. In fact, playing this has made us desperately want to stick on a bit of Elvis, although perhaps not Blue Suede Shoes once you’ve heard those chords a few dozen times!

It’s also a really easy game to play for slot newbies, with just the Elvis wild to get to grips with. The jackpot isn’t one of the biggest out there so if you’re looking for a big win then we’d recommend playing this slot with higher value coins to maximise your winnings and to bet two coins when possible.
