In the 1960s, a group of famous celebrities (Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr., Dean Martin, Peter Lawford and Joey Bishop) ruled the Vegas Strip. Some 40 years later, Microgaming paid tribute to this historical group with the introduction of a video slot titled The Rat Pack. The game depicts cartoonish looking rats that look like members of the original group. Players will love the graphics, hysterical video features of the rats singing and dancing, and a music soundtrack that includes music from back in the day.
The game is played with 5 reels and 30 pay lines. Players are permitted to wager between 1 and 10 coins with a selected value of between $.01 per pay line, up to a max of $.25 per pay line. With a max wager of $75.00, players can play the game for a chance to win a jackpot that goes as high as $25,000.
Playing card numbers 10 thru Ace with attached musical instruments, plus a Sammy Davis Jr rat, a Frank Sinatra rat, a Dean Martin rat, a Joey Bishop rat and two female backup singing rats are used as low paying standard symbols. The game logo acts as a wild symbol. It substitutes for any of the other symbols with the exception of the gold record scatter symbol and the 2X bonus symbol.
If the player lands 2, 3, 4 or 5 scatter symbols, they win 2, 4, 10 or 100 free spins respectively. During free spins, scatters are locked for one more spin each time they appear. Nudges are also available during free spins to move one reel forward one spot for better results. The player keeps spinning until a scatter fails to appear.
At anytime during the base game, a 2X bonus symbol might appear on the reels. When this happens, the player is awarded a 2X multiplier to be applied if there was a winning spin in the mix.
Verdict: While playing the Rat Pack slot game, this reviewer found themselves reminiscing about the glory days of Las Vegas. The Rat Pack represented everything that was both good and bad about the city back then. Other than the free spins round, its a shame Microgaming wasn't able to include an interactive bonus game into the mix to generate more excitement. As the game stands, the music and video features are worth the price of admission on its own. Beyond that, there really isn't much else to recommend about the game.
