Back in the 1950s, life was so much simpler. Having a good time consisted of little more than popping a few coins in the jukebox and listening to some good old Rock and Roll. To commemorate that era of golden oldies and easy living, software developer Playtech introduced this truly classic slot game called “Rock’n’Roller.”

The screen of Rock’n’Roller is designed to closely resemble the face of jukebox. A graphic paytable appears at the top of the screen, the reels window is in the middle and the player’s controls can be found at the bottom. Unlike most of today’s online slot games, Rock’n’Roller features just three reels and five paylines—three horizontal and two diagonal—reminiscent of the types of slots one would have seen back in the days of bobby socks and saddle shoes.

Available credit denominations range from €0.01 to €5.00. The amount can be adjusted by using the +/- toggles at the bottom left corner of the screen. Using the “Bet One” button below the first and second reels, it is possible to select from 1 to 5 paylines for a maximum wager of €25. Clicking on “Bet Max” will select all five paylines, but will not affect the denomination of the line wagers.

The total Bet appears in the display to the immediate left of the reels, and whatever paylines have been selected are shown as thin grey bars running across the actual reels. To start the game, simply click “Spin” beneath the middle reel. Winnings are displayed in the “Win” section to the immediate right of the reels, and the player’s current balance shows in the screen’s lower left-hand corner.

Winning combinations are displayed at all times above the reels. A payout of double the line bet is awarded for catching three blanks on an active payline. Prizes of 25X, 40X or 50X are paid for three matching Drums, Harmonicas or Guitars, respectively. Matching any three musical instruments at random pays 5X.

Higher payouts come when three records are aligned. Three match Gold Records pays 150 times the line bet. Catching three Platinum Records in a row is worth 400X, 475X, 550X, 625X or 700X on the paylines numbered 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5, respectively. Matching any three records at random pays 100X.

There are no bonus games, wild symbols, scatters or free spin features in Rock’n’Roller. However, there are guitar chords to set the reels in motions and saxophone riffs when winning combinations are paid out. The game is strictly old school and truly meant for those slot players who can appreciate the simplicity factor.

There is one high-tech aspect to the game, however. For those who like to sit back and let Autoplay do the spinning, Rock’n’Roller has several special features. First, there is no toggle on the main screen to activate Autoplay. Instead, it is hidden and can only be accessed through the pull-down “Tools” menu at the very top of the screen. Second, using the +/- toggles next to the spins indicator that appear in the lower right corner of the screen is tedious, so the number of auto spins desired can be typed directly into the counter—up to 9,999 spins maximum.

Additional Autoplay options can be accessed by clicking the expanded menu arrows on the very left of the Autoplay display. It is possible to set “stop loss” and “overall win” limits. There are also +/- toggles for adjusting the length of the delay between spins, all of which gives the player even greater control over the game’s pace.
