Push Gaming’s retro rodent royalty roams the reels in Rat King

Bow down to the king of the rats as Push Gaming has rolled back the years with an 8-bit-themed slot title, Rat King.

Push Gaming’s latest release showcases a 6×6 reel board with a maximum win of up to x10,000 the player’s bet and special features including collection box multipliers and free spins. The slot has medium volatility with nan RTP of 96.3 per cent. 

Amit Samji, Principal Game Producer at Push Gaming, commented: “Rat King is our very first pay-anywhere title. It also benefits from an inventive collection mechanic which is a testament to the incredible creativity our development team is blessed with.

“This imaginative feature is juxtaposed by a familiar retro style that together has produced a slot which we are confident players will adore.” 

The slot uses scatter-pays, meaning that symbols do not award wins according to paylines, but will provide payouts when a minimum of seven identical symbols appear anywhere across the reel set. 

Cascading wins occur when both dud and standard symbols form matching combinations across the board, causing the winning symbols to disappear and make way for new symbols to drop in. 

Throughout the game, collection boxes sit beneath each reel. When symbols disappear due to cascading wins, multiplier stars can fall into these collection boxes to apply their multiplier value to any wins that occur on the same spin. 

In the free spins feature, star multipliers will not only apply themselves to wins on the same spin, but to a meter above the reel set. This multiplier meter will then apply itself to any multiplier star wins that occur on subsequent turns, while remaining inactive for standard wins.

Meanwhile, landing Rat King scatters during the bonus game mode will award an extra three spins each.
