This new version of Konami’s popular “Rock Around the Clock” game utilizes the full capability of the manufacturer’s Advantage Revolution cabinet, which features a three-part revolving reel mechanism used to alternate between spinning reels, video reels and bonuses.
This new version of the game, based on the legendary 1950s song of the same name by Bill Haley and His Comets, triples the bonus feature popular in the first game, in which clock characters dance to the famous song in a sequence triggered when the clock on the bonus display reaches 12. One of the three clock bonuses triggers one of six levels of progressive jackpot.
The base game is a three-reel stepper with a 50-credit minimum bet. It is a “27 Ways” setup—all wins pay in any position from left to right for 27 possible winning combinations on any spin. During base game play, the clocks in the bonus display increment every 10 spins. When one reaches 12, the corresponding bonus is triggered.
Alternatively, reel combinations can automatically take each clock to 12 and trigger the bonus. When the blue clock is triggered, seven free spins are awarded. During free spins, the chance of “7” combinations of mixed colors increases, thanks to a “nudge” feature that results in stacked 7s. The free-spin round can be retriggered, as can the trigger combinations for the other two bonuses.
When the purple clock strikes 12, the “Lucky Records Feature” is triggered. A wheel bonus appears in the rotating chamber, and an arrow spins around the disc until landing on a credit amount and multiplier.
The red clock triggers the “Rockin’ Jackpot” feature. Each reel is re-spun once to determine a wheel color pattern, which determines the color pattern on a bonus wheel. An arrow spin stops on one of the six progressive jackpots.
