Your first questions upon finding this game are likely to be who on Earth is Rook, what reason has he to be vengeful, and who is he trying to get revenge on exactly? We do know that Rook is the rotund star of another older Betsoft slot game, Aztec Treasures. But given that one of the bonus features in that game is the infamous "love hut" where Rook retreats with one of his "treasures" (a girl that firmly puts Rook into the "punching well above his weight" category) we're still a little puzzled on the revenge part. What we do know, however, is that this is an excellent slot game that should not be missed. Come help the quest for Rook's Revenge and you may just find the journey to be a rather lucrative one!
Like the other offerings from Betsoft, the presentation is simply immaculate. In a bit of departure from games from this manufacturer, there are only a couple of bonus features to speak of. However, many may find this to be a nice change from the standard Betsoft bonus feature offering which some find to be a bit overwhelming.
The presentation in this one is about as close as it gets to perfect. Perhaps the highlight is the corpulent Aztec fellow who stands besides the reels, gets angry at you when you're idle, and goes just crazy when a winning spin occurs. Complementing him are finely-crafted symbols, cool effects, and music that is both catchy and pleasant. This one truly does have it all as far as the presentation is concerned.
There is a good selection of gameplay features on offer as well: First and foremost, Rook's Revenge has the ever-popular cascading wins feature. Also note that with each successive "cascade," you benefit from progressively higher winnings multipliers - 2x, 3x, and 5x in the normal game and 3x, 6x, 9x, and 15x during the free spins feature. The free spins feature is activated by having three or more golden masks appear on a single payline. There is also a standard wild symbol that appears on the middle three reels, but does not act as a winnings multiplier.
Playing Rook's Revenge is easy: First, pick the credit denomination you wish to use. Second, adjust the bet per line using the appropriate buttons. Finally, click on "spin" to get the action started.
