Guns N’ Roses Slot
NetEnt manage to set the scene tremendously well in this ultimate rock-themed video slot game. Gun N’ Roses video slot is a 5 reel, 3 row, 20 line video slot based around the iconic rock band playing their biggest hits at a huge, atmospheric rock venue.
You are in charge of the setlist and have the choice of playing 5 huge Guns N’ Roses hits: Welcome to the Jungle, Paradise City, Sweet Child O’ Mine, November Rain and Chinese Democracy to play whilst you spin those reels and what’s more, whenever a win comes in, you’ll be thrilled to see and hear the crowd going wild!
The Guns N’ Roses reels present 9 symbols, the high-value ones being the band members and 2 types of guitar plectrums, the lower value symbols being the traditional playing card symbols A, K, Q, J and 10. The famous Guns N’ Roses band logo is the wild symbol; this can appear anywhere on the reels and will substitute for everything except for the bonus. You can also land an expanding wild symbol if you’re extra lucky! Keep an eye out for the Appetite for Destruction wild too – this is a cross-shaped overlay wild that can land randomly on the reels and substitutes all symbols but the bonus.
The bonus symbols are easy to spot and if you land 3 of them at any position on reels 1, 3 and 5, a bonus feature will be activated. This could be Encore Free Spins, the Crowd-Pleaser bonus or winning coins, and is determined when you stop the spinning record player – simply click the bonus wheel button to see which bonus lands!
Crowd-Pleaser is a fun, click and pick bonus game featuring 3 different levels where you can click to reveal coins and free spins. Encore Free Spins triggers 10 free spins and features a one of the band members appearing as a stacked wild during every spin, to help boost those winnings!
Keep your eyes peeled for a couple of great randomly activated features too; these include the Legend Spins feature which awards 1 stacked wild during your initial spin, and the Solo Multiplier feature which generates a random multiplier of between x4 and x10 to a winning bet line!
Guns N’ Roses is a crazy, enjoyable game packed full of spectacular features, and an awesome soundtrack and theme to boot. Whether you’re a fan of this iconic band or not, we have no doubts that you’ll absolutely love Guns N’ Roses video slots.
Jimi Hendrix Slot
The second slot is NetEnt’s trio of rock-themed games is the Jimi Hendrix slot, which was released in April 2016. The game naturally stars the rock legend, although it is perhaps more cartoony than you may have envisioned.
Jimi Hendrix is played over 5 reels and 20 lines, and allows players to wager anything from 1p up to £1 per line. With up to 10 coins also able to be staked per line, your wagering range in this rock-themed slot is going to stem from 20p up to £200 in all. Players can win as much as 4,000 coins with a spot of luck on this new slot machine title.
There is a massive array of features in this slot, six in all. Jimi Hendrix contains 2 of those features in the base game. The Purple Haze feature offers you up to three wild symbols, which will appear randomly on the reels of the game.
A re-spin feature can also be triggered if players land four red guitar icons on the reels. The feature can be reactivated by landing more guitars on the screen.
There is also a click and win feature, which can offer you the other four bonus features in the game. Players need to land 3 of the angel symbols on the reels of the game in order to trigger this bonus round.
Once the click and win feature has begun, players will either land coin wins, the Crosstown Traffic free spins bonus, the Purple Haze free spins bonus, or the Little Wing free spins bonus. The coin win is self-explanatory, whilst the bonus rounds offer you two wild reels, Purple Haze wilds, or 3 to 5 overlaying wilds on each spin, in each respective free spins bonus game.
Jimi Hendrix is just as feature-laden as the Guns ‘N’ Roses slot which came before it, and in all likelihood, the Motörhead which will follow on in September. There is a lot of love in this slot, and it makes for great gaming no matter what budget you happen to be playing with. Also, take advantage of the playlist feature, which allows you to listen to some licensed Hendrix tracks whilst spinning the reels of this slot.
Motorhead Slot By Netent
It’s finally here….the hugely anticipated last slot game of NetEnt’s huge rock trilogy! We’ve played and reviewed the incredible Guns N’ Roses and Jimi Hendrix online slots; now it’s time to check out the crazy, loud and fast-paced Motorhead online slot. NetEnt have dazzled us with the first two in the trilogy so we simply could not wait for this release.
Kicking off with the superbly fitting rock anthem Ace of Spades, this video slot hits you with a knockout atmosphere instantly. There are 76 pay lines and a variation on the layout this time; there are 5 standard reels but between 3-5 rows on this game. Choose Rock Mode to rock out continuously to a selection of Motorhead’s best hits, or turn it off to simply listen to the sound effects of the spinning reels. Read on to discover more on this thrilling rock slot and its bonus features, including mystery reels and the Bomber feature.
Motorhead online slot features imagery of the band and stage, and then there’s Lemmy, the lead singer, as the highest value symbol. He is joined by a star, a bell, 7s, a horseshoe, cherries and a four leaf clover, all of which will hopefully bring you a little luck.
Inevitably, there’s an Ace of Spades symbol (we’d be disappointed if there wasn’t) and this is the wild. This substitutes all other symbols within the game apart from the scatter, which is the band’s famous logo.
- Mystery Reel Feature – the highlight of Motorhead online slot is the presence of mystery reels. This means that the reels will consist of stacked mystery symbols and regular symbols. During each spin (unless the Bomber feature is active), there are one or more mystery reels. When the reels stop, any mystery symbols that are present will transfer into a random symbol.
- Free Spins – land 3 scatters on the third, fourth and fifth reels and activate 10 free spins. During the free spins round, the mystery reels consists of both mystery an wild icons.
- Bomber Feature – this occurs within the main game only and is triggered at random. Every bomb that is present contains a cluster of mystery symbols. As the bombs go off, at least 10 overlay mystery symbols are created. The reels will then spin and a symbol is chosen in the same way as the Mystery Reels feature.
The last game in the rock trilogy has had a lot to live up to, especially in comparison with Guns N’ Roses, which blew many players away. In terms of music, both bands are amazing, and we really couldn’t choose between the two. In terms of gameplay, Motorhead has some awesome bonus features and unique elements, and simply has to be checked out. When it comes down to it though, we think Guns N’ Roses might just tip the post in this superb trilogy that NetEnt have treated us to.
ZZ Top Slot by Bally Tech
ZZ Top is, of course, based on one of the biggest rock bands of all time. This Bally Tech developed video slot and one which is played over a 5×3 reel structure. This slot is jam-packed with special features, and alongside Bally’s Michael Jackson: King of Pop slot, it is one of a few really dedicated and authentic music themed slots doing the rounds on the net. ZZ Top isn’t the cheapest slot to play, but wagers won’t cost you too much, and you get a lot back via its many special bonuses, and decent progressive cash prizes.
Your usual wild symbols are present in this slot, but it is the special features which are most appealing. For instance, the Just Got Paid bonus offers an instant cash prize via a pick and win game.
A Jackpot Wheel bonus can see players try and win one of three progressive jackpots, known as Big as Texas, Fandango, and The Whole Enchilada. The more you wager, the larger the progressive you can compete to win.
Also during this game, two randomly triggered events can occur. The Eliminator could award wild symbols on the second, third, fourth, or fifth reels, whilst the VU Meter feature can see players land multipliers worth between 2x and 5x the normal rate of pay on any spin.
Players can trigger a Wheel Bonus in this game, simply by bagging 3 bonus icons on the three central reels. You could trigger the Jackpot Wheel from this feature, enjoy a spin on a cash paying wheel, or active a free spins bonus game.
There are two free games features in ZZ Top. In the Sharp Dressed Man bonus, players can select items to win up to 35 free spins with up to 3x multipliers. The Legs bonus offers players 8 free spins with locking wilds.
ZZ Top is easily one of the best rock themed video slots to appear. Its surplus of special features is certainly going to make it an instant hit with anybody who loves playing music themed slot machine games, even if it does appear complex at the start.
