The Rat Pack is a 5 reel 30 payline Microgaming video pokie, featuring friendly jazz playing rats. It’s colourful, and although it does look a bit more dated than the slots coming out today, the game play is smooth, with wilds and free spins to spice things up. The slot has an RTP of 94.19%, which puts it into the medium variance range, so it will require just a tad more patience, as payouts won’t be so frequent.
How to Play
The night is vibrant in this New Orleans jazz club, and several music lovin’ rats will be there to entertain you. You can get your jazzy night on the road effortlessly by setting your bet size. The coin size is the round, purple button to the left side of the screen. It ranges from $0.01 to $0.25 and you can press on – or + to adjust it to your taste. Next, set the number of coins you would like per line (from 1 to 10 coins), and the number of lines you would like to bet on (from 1 to 30 lines). With complete flexibility in these settings, it means minimum bet per spins starts at just $0.01, which can be nice for those on a tighter budget, although we generally recommend that you bet on more lines to increase your chances for a win. The symbols in the Rat Pack are as follows, from highest to lowest value:
- Rat in red light
- Rat in orange light
- Rat in green light
- 2 Rat sisters
- Piano playing Rat
- A, K, Q, J, 10
Additionally, there are special symbols:
- Scatter: Golden Record
- Wild: 2x symbol
- Wild: the Rat Pack logo
Graphics and Sounds
The Rat Pack has a typical, older video pokie look and feel. We’ll be honest. It’s a bit boxy, with slightly dated looking graphics. But that having been said, the game still has a cheery, down-to-earth feeling, sort of like what you would expect at a jazz club. And as your might expect, there’s a pleasant low key sax playing in the background to keep your night rolling.
The Rat Pack’s fixed jackpot can be won by spinning 5 of the Rat Pack Wild symbols. This would get you 5,000x the coins you bet per line. So it’s worth betting more than 1 coin per line. Alright, it’s not a progressive jackpot, but it’s still a handsome little bit of cash to take home. And with some free spins and multipliers thrown into the mix, you can be walking away with 30,000 coins.
A simple video pokie, there aren’t too many special features in the Rat Pack, but nevertheless, here are some extras that will give you a boost along the way:
Free Spin Scatter
Spin 3 or more Golden Record Scatter symbols, and you will trigger the free spin feature. During the free spin, the Golden Records are held in place, with wins awarded with the spin. Then the Golden Record symbols will move down one reel while the rest of the reels spin. The free spin feature only ends when there are no more Golden Records on the reels. You can be looking at a lot of free spins here!
The 2x symbols will double your win, and also serves as a wild, substituting for all symbols except for the scatter.
With every win, you have the option to grow it with the Gamble feature. This feature can double or quadruple your win, and you can keep playing it until you reach the Gamble limit. Of course it’s a little risky, but for those looking for some extra adrenaline, it can pay off!
The Rat Pack is a straightforward video pokie from Microgaming. It’s the kind of game that fits the bill for a low-key, quiet evening. While it won’t blow anyone away, it does have a quaint charm, and the Free Spins Scatter and Multipliers will add to the game play and your bank roll.
