- but why not try one of these?
Sammy Davis Jr., Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra are just there of the members of the legendary Rat Pack who would surely be delighted that there is now an online slot machine dedicated to their memory. Even better, it features actual rats doing the entertaining so if you think about it, the singers in Microgaming’s The Rat Pack are the real deal.
The Rat Pack features thirty paylines spread out over five reels and those reels are lit from behind by a number of stage lights; as you might expect the five main symbols are the rate themselves and we have a pianist, a female duo and three crooners who perhaps represent the Sammy, Dean and Ol’ Blue Eyes himself.
The Rat Pack logo is wild, there’s a 2x symbol which doubles any wins and then there’s a gold disc scatter which activates the bonus feature.
This is an interesting take on the usual free spin round and you’ll need to land three, four or five of the gold disc scatter symbols anywhere on the reels. You don’t win a set number of free spins though, everything depends on that gold disc.
When the spins start you need to land more gold discs; any on the reels will mean you get one more spin. When you land one it will remain in place for one more spin and then it will nudge down one reel at a time until it disappears.
This means that a disc landing on the middle reel would stay in place for one spin and then take one nudge down before becoming ineffective.
If you fancy even more gambling then click the ‘Gamble’ button underneath the reels to wager your most recent win. Predict the colour of the next card drawn to double it or pick the next suit to quadruple it. Get it wrong and you’ll be back to the base game with no winnings.
The Rat Pack Online Slot Playing Tips
Take care with the gamble feature – there’s a temptation to wager every win and then lose it all as you keep trying to double your money. Don’t gamble every time and collect after one or two wins.
The bonus feature is what makes this game and it’s exciting when you finally trigger it. Considering the theme, there is some background music but we’d have liked a bit more swing.
