When you read the title of this slot you probably thought to yourself that this game has something to do with generally being unruly or disruptive. Well, it is about making waves, but Rock the Boat is more about making music on the high seas with the king of rock himself, Elvis. Take a shot at winning this game’s jackpot if you want to make a splash and then go on a high-powered, Elvis-themed spending spree with your winnings!
This three reel, single pay line slot from Microgaming utilizes a theme that’s a cross between Elvis and boating. Yes, it is a little strange, but it’s also quite amusing, which is what really counts at the end of the day. Aside from more traditional icons like the bar sign, the game also uses symbols that go hand-in-hand with the unique theme, including a lighthouse, guitar and, of course, Elvis himself. There is also a very odd, yet intriguing depiction of Elvis on a rowboat with a microphone underneath the reels.
Before setting sail with the king of rock on his rowboat, you must first decide how much you are going to wager on this musical-nautical adventure. Adjust the bet denomination and number of coins to be played per spin (the latter is changed by clicking on the appropriate column in the pay table) to have the bet range anywhere from $.25 to $10. The game begins once you click on ‘spin’ and send the reels on their merry way.
The key to success in Rock the Boat is the Elvis symbol: He is, first of all, tied to the highest amount that can be won on a single spin. Three Elvises on the lone pay line with two coins in play can win you a cool 1,600 credits. He is also the wild symbol and multiplier. Not only can Elvis substitute any other icon, but one of him will double your winnings for the pay line in question while two of him will quadruple your winnings!
