The Rat Pack slots’s inspiration comes from rats, but also from a group of actors which were famous during the 50s. Their leader was Humphrey Bogart, and the others in the group included Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra, Joey Bishop, Peter Lawford and Sammy Davis Jr. Microgaming didn’t go for the retro angle here though, instead turning the members of the group into rats that are on the stage, performing a song. You get 30 lines, you have scatter symbols, free spins, wilds and a multiplier, and you can take home up to $100,000.
Betting and Prizes
30 lines need to be covered if you want as many chances as possible to win something. You can do it with 1 to 10 coins in each case, and so the bet can use 300 coins at most. The coin value varies as well, the range starting at $0.01 and going as high as $2. A maximum bet in The Rat Pack game would be worth as much as $600, which is not cheap. It can be as $0.30 as well though, and it would still activate all the lines.
The biggest reward appears to come from the wild symbol, and at 5,000x, it could mean 50,000 coins, or $100,000 cash.
The Rat Pack Slot Features
First, let’s check out the scatter symbol, the one with the Gold Record. The presence of a couple of these icons on the lines will get you paid, up to 100x the bet. If at least three are present, the cash prize is accompanied by a free spins feature. You get free spins for as long as you have scatters present on the reels. These scatters are held in place, but they move down by one position each round. This happens with the original triggering scatters, and also with the new ones that appear.
One of the two wilds in use here has a 2X logo on it. This one is the wild which is capable of multiplying prizes by 2x, and which can substitute for any other icon, with the exception of the scatter. It even appears to be able to replace the other wild symbol, the one that can give out prizes.
Finally, we have the wild, with The Rat Pack logo, which will act as a substitute for regular symbols and which can form combinations that pay up to 5,000x ($100,000). It seems to be able to benefit from the wild with a multiplier, so there is a chance that you will actually win $200,000 from its five symbol combo.
Theme & Design
There are five symbols inside which have rats in them, and they are all singing in the microphone on a stage, or playing a piano. They are dressed in suits, and they seem to be trying to mimic the look of certain members of the original Rat Pack group. The design is good enough, though I would’ve preferred a retro look and images of the actual actors from the 50s.
The Rat Pack online slot will give you very good prizes, and at least decent graphics and features, so I’d recommend you give it a chance.
