Rock the Boat is a Microgaming pokie with a classic rock and roll theme. Rock the Boat has an old-school aesthetic, with just 3 reels and 1 payline. It’s as basic as you will get, albeit with a few interesting tweaks, but it still makes for a very interesting pokie and one that has already proved to be popular with Microgaming fans.
You can play Rock the Boat yourself on the best Microgaming casinos, including Jackpot City.
Elvis, or rather a poor lookalike, is the star of the show on Rock the Boat. You’ll find symbols of Elvis and his guitar, both of which pay very well, and some classic symbols, which don’t pay as well. There is also a suggestion of a marine theme here, which is where the lighthouse symbol comes into play, but we’re not really sure what the point of this is.
The Elvis symbol is the wild and it is also the symbol that returns the biggest wins.
There isn’t a great betting range on Rock the Boat, because whilst you can bet from as little as $0.25 per spin, the maximum bet is just $10, which is very low.
As you would expect from a single payline retro pokie, Rock the Boat doesn’t have any bonus rounds, or any other features for that matter. The RTP is good and you can win as much as 1,600x with a jackpot that is far more common than the jackpots on many other pokies, but the lack of a bonus round is still a little disappointing.
Rock the Boat is a well-presented pokie, but we’re not entirely sure what is going on with the theme, and whether Elvis is supposed to be the lighthouse operator, a cruise-ship entertainer or anything else. There is also no bonus round, which is another big negative, but if you like retro games with high variance, Rock the Boat could be just what you are looking for.
