Rockys Gold Ultraways Slot (Microgaming)

Rockys Gold Ultraways Slot (Microgaming) slotThe Megaways engine is a not-so-new trend, but with the new slot, we are getting a lot of creativity. Rocky's Gold Ultraways is the latest to join the long list of slots that rely on this concept, and from the look of things, it looks like a slot that has a lot going on.

It’s a mining-themed slot game that was developed by Microgaming, in conjunction with Northern Lights Gaming.

I took some time to try out this slot for real money, and here is my unbiased review:

Game Set-Up

Rocky's Gold Ultraways has a 5x3 reels design, and it has the ability to expand into another 4. This way, you get the opportunity to work with as many as 60 million ways to win.

The features inside include multipliers, free spins, Rocky respins, as well as a Dynamite Wild bonus.

Betting and Prizes

The slot offers a good payout, and to play Rocky's Gold Ultraways, you just need $0.10 per spin. This title can pay as much as $30 from one spin.

The highest prize that you can get from Rocky's Gold Ultraways is 11,500x the stake. This slot is very high in volatility, but even with the increased volatility, the developer has given it a fair RTP of 96.12%.

Rocky's Gold Ultraways Slot Features

On the 5x3 reels, you can get up to 1, 2, or 4 symbols. With such a combination, you can get up to 10 symbols on the same row.

On the slot’s middle three reels, you may occasionally get the bonus symbols (the mining cart). With the entire three symbols visible, then you will have access to the free spins. If only two scatters land, then you will trigger the Rocky Respin instead.

To activate the free spins, the slot requires that you start by picking a rock first. This will then reveal the number of free games that you have won, and the multiplier level that will be applied.

I love the fact that it is possible to upgrade both the free spins and the multipliers. Also, the free spins can be retriggered.

Rocky's Gold Ultraways also comes with a Dynamite Wild Bonus, and this is a random feature. It has the potential to add up to 6 dynamite sticks to the reels, and you can use these to replace the icons with wilds.

As is normally the case, the wild serves as a replacement symbol when you are forming winning combos. However, on this slot, the wild can also form its own winning combos that pay 1.10x the stake, for a comb of 10.

Theme & Design

Rocky's Gold Ultraways offers a gold mining theme. On the reels, you can see the entrance to the mine.

For the symbols, the developer has given us images of mining carts, the RG logo (this is the top symbol), three crystal shapes, as well as four Royals.


Overall, it is safe to say that Rocky's Gold Ultraways is a well-designed slot game with the potential to deliver multiple ways to win.

However, even with the many pay lines, the slot only offers an average top payout, but it’s a great choice for all levels of players.
