When slot games are being designed, a specific theme is now regularly adopted. Gone are the days when slot games were based on different types of fruit, now there’s a whole range of themes used. One of these is the world of music, particularly Rock N’ Roll. The theme taps into the fanbase of the singer/group and allows there to be a great musical soundtrack too. One of the most famous and most played is the Guns N’ Roses online slots game. Played by fans all over the globe, it is loved by many. Here’s a look at some of the other top Rock N’ Roll slot games.
Kiss: Shout it out Loud!
If you are looking for a game that can’t be anything but colourful, then this is the one to play. The American rock group are famed for their bizarre facial make-up. It’s made them a fortune but not been that great for their facial complexion.
This slot was released by WMS Gaming and features not one but two sets of reels. There’s the main set and then the Colossal Reel Set. This lives up to its name and you can get a whole reel made up of the band members.
Symbols include Gene Simmons famous (and long) tongue, a Kiss badge and a guitar. The wild symbol features all four band members and at their best, wild just about summed them up perfectly. Bonus features give players the chance to win free spins and there’s the chance to turn a whole set of reels wild. Fans of the group will love the fact that the soundtrack includes some of their greatest hits.
As the late, great Lemmy would often sing, ‘It’s time to play the game.’ This slot based on the rock band Motorhead might lead you to slightly reduce the volume or just go for it and turn it full up. There is the option to switch the music off but if you’re a Motorhead fan, the only real option is the Rock Mode.
This is another NetEnt game, a company that have released several rock related slots in their time. From the moment ‘Ace of Spades’ is played; you know that a noisy but highly enjoyable time lies ahead. It’s a close-run race between the spinning reels and the speed at which the guitars are being played.
It has a dark, almost gloomy look to it with a stage in the background but no members in sight. Knowing Motorhead, they were probably down the pub at the time getting ready for their next concert.
Symbols include Lemmy, a silver bell, a horseshoe, four leaf clover, a gold star and the Ace of Spades and Motorhead logos. There’s the Bomber Feature that makes the game even noisier. Symbols can literally explode to produce replacement symbols that can produce wins. The Mystery Reel feature also helps boost your account as does the free spins round so there are plenty of opportunities to get big wins from this popular slot.
It’s not just Geordies that are loud, here’s a slot based on the American heavy metal band. This slot comes from Leander Gaming and its soundtrack will almost literally blow you away. The game has a rather metallic look to it with plenty of chains and again the backdrop is a stage but no sign of the group. Perhaps it was a festival and they were down the pub with the Motorhead lads.
Symbols include the band members at the time, the Megadeth logo, a skull (aka Vic Rattlehead), three guitars, a guitar pick (perhaps the three guitarists have to share it), a speaker and a drum. Older readers will remember how exciting the nudge feature was way back in time. This slot has the Mega Nudge Feature, though it costs more to put it into play. There’s also the Vic Rattlehead Bonus that takes you to the Mega Wheel.
This decides whether you’ll be playing the Hangar 18 Free Spins or the crazy Head Crusher Game. The latter sees you having to choose from a selection of prisoners who all have bags over their heads (rather than under their eyes) and which stops when a female prisoner is revealed. A great slot, in fact a mega one.
Rock music continues to be a popular theme for slot games. The combination of a popular subject and a rampaging soundtrack is just too good to resist for slot designers. There are plenty of other rock related slots out on the market. The list includes Ozzy Osbourne and there are several dedicated to the King of Rock and Roll, Elvis Presley. No sign of a Jedward game though.
