Rocket Men is a Red Tiger Gaming slot machine, one where they went political and chose a theme that’s relevant. It’s inspired by the verbal conflict between Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un, and the entire slot is built around a theoretical nuclear war between the two countries, though at the same time it makes fun of the two characters.
5 reels were used in Rocket Men, and this gave the player enough space for the 20 active lines that he will rely on each round. There are big rewards, of up to $25,000, which can be won by the player. There are also a number of features that make fun of the two presidents, with names like Kim’s Little Game, Don’s Driving Range, Party Time, Boom Time or Nuclear Spins.
Betting and Prizes
Red Tiger Gaming will usually choose the same betting range for all its slot machines. It will go up to $500, with a starting point at $0.20 in this case. You get to use 20 lines this way, and to wager between $0.01 and $25 for each one.
As for the prizes that are available, the game claims that up to 1,000x will be offered to the players, which will translate into a cash prize of up to $25,000. The RTP of the game is good enough, considering what the other competitors are doing right now, being set to 96.12%.
Rocket Men Slot Features
The symbol that features two nuclear bombs, one colored in blue with a bikini on it, the other in red and featuring a hamburger, is marked as a Wild. It’s obvious what you’re going to be able to use it for, this being the symbol that you can have substitute for others on the reels, the aim being the formation of a new combination. These wilds are also allowed to form combinations themselves, which is how they can pay you up to 500x.
Donald and Kim symbols are used for the reels 1 and 5, respectively. When one appears on their reel, they trigger a feature that is associated with them. They each have their own tower that they can appear in, to the sides of the reels, and from there they will do something to make the game more profitable for you.
Get Donald to appear on reel 1, and the feature that you might get out of him could be Don’s Driving Range. You see Donald appear on a carrier’s tower, smashing golf balls from there in the direction of the reels. Loser symbols are removed from the reels and more wins will be coming your way from the remaining ones.
Kim’s Little Game will have the dictator test rockets on the reels, and in the spots where they land there will be wild symbols that you can use.
Boom Time is a feature where Kim is taking aim at the United States, the pick that is made resulting in a cash prize. Some areas will pay better than others, but it’s all random.
Party Time is another one where Donald is the star. He slaps women’s bums in this feature, and big prizes can result from it.
Finally, with both Don and Kim present on their reels, you can trigger the Nuclear Spins. The free spins go on until one side is defeated, as the two presidents fling wild rockets at each other.
Theme & Design
It’s one of the most unusual, hilarious and even offensive themes that you will find right now. Some will love it, others might hate it. It’s not trying to be politically correct, just like the two presidents that it’s modeled after. The design is excellent, and I didn’t even notice at first that it has Royal cards as well. The rest are images with Donald or Kim, with lady bums, nuclear bombs, army ducks, hamburgers and so on.
Rocket Man is a must play game just because of how relevant it is and because it is well designed and well thought out.
