Rockstar Game Characteristics
Rockstar’s metallic 5X3 grid is set on a truss tent that is divided up by truss ladders. The stage truss is fitted with flashing safety lights, while the self-adjusting numbers on the marginal truss ladders indicate the game’s five bet levels.
There are 30 left-to-right adjustable paylines, eleven coin denominations, thirteen symbols, 935 total bets, two self-multiplying win multipliers, two substituting wilds, bonus game, no free games, no side game, and regularly pays from $2.00 to $500.00.
