Wild Rockets is a 5 reel slot that has 720 fixed bet ways, this means that you will always be spinning the reels with the maximum amount of ways to win, regardless of the bet size you are playing at. The lowest stake you can play this slot at is €0.50, and the bet sizes rise quickly before reaching the maximum of €100.
You are given a bit of an extra chance to win on Wild Rockets as it will pay you for wins left to right, and right to left, you may have seen this style of pay system on one of NetEnt's previous slots called Starburst.
The beauty of the use of this system on Wild Rockets is that if you get a win that goes across all 5 reels, then it will pay you for that win both left to right, and right to left. So hitting a good line of premium symbols could pay you a nice multiple of your stake in return.

UPWARD FACING WILD ON WILD ROCKETS
ANY SYMBOLS ABOVE AN UPWARD FACING WILD WILL ALL BECOME WILD
The wild symbol on Wild Rockets appears on reels 2, 3, and 4 only, it will substitute for all other symbols except the scatter symbol.
Any wild symbol that lands will have some rockets on it, these will either be pointing upwards or downwards. Once the reels have stopped, whatever direction the rockets are facing they will then shoot up or down that way, so any symbol above or below ( depending on which way the rockets are facing ) will then be turned into a wild.

Once your free spin feature begins you are looking for as many of the wild symbols as possible to land. Ideally you would like to see wilds on reels 2, 3, and 4 so you have the chance of hitting some good sized wins.
Although it isn't always key, it does tend to be a lot more useful if your wilds land at the top or bottom position of the reel, this gives you the possibility of a full reel wild, as long as the rockets are pointing in the direction.
The general rule of thumb with this feature is that the wild rockets tend to land a lot more than what they do in the base game. This isn't always going to be the case, but from my experience of playing this slot they have always shown up a lot during the bonus round.
The free spin feature can be re-triggered and this is achieved by once again landing 3 or more fo the scatter symbols anywhere in view.
wild rockets slot review final thoughts
This is certainly something a little different from NetEnt, and it's a slot I have grown to enjoy playing over recent times. Having a minimum stake of €0.50 is something that you don't normally associate with NetEnt as you can generally play there slots at a lot smaller stake, so you should be aware that you will need a bigger bankroll than you perhaps normally would do if you're low rolling.
My playing experiences on Wild Rockets have seen the features coming in reasonably quick, but never paying a huge amount of money. There is certainly some potential for some decent sized wins on this slot though, and hopefully I'll be getting one in the near future.
