NetEnt have been designing online slots games for a few years now, and they often come up with a series of themed games. With their Rocks series, they have landed on another winner.
The Rocks series of games are slot games based around some of the most famous rock bands and individuals in the world, such as Guns ‘N’ Roses and Jimi Hendrix. And in 2016 they launched a slot game based around legendary rockers Motorhead.
The five reels offer 76 paylines and are set to a background of a live music stage comprising amps, guitars, overhead lights and a drumkit. This game is playable on multiple devices, and betting starts at just 20c per spin, rising up to $200, and it offers a number of bonus features that can be activated when landing certain symbols.
As you would expect from a slots game based on a rock band, NetEnt have really upped the ante with the sound in this game, and there is a neat feature called ‘Rock Mode’ that will crank up the volume of the music as you spin the reels.
This game is a low volatility game, which offers a generous Return to Player ratio of 96.98% and a maximum jackpot payout of 11,400 coins.
The symbols in this game are a mixed bag of lucky horseshoes, clovers, cherries, a bell, a star, and lead singer Lemmy, who is the most valuable symbol on the base game, with five of him on a payline offering 150 coins in return.
This game offers three bonus games, although there are no multipliers to be found, that doesn’t mean you can’t land some big wins during the bonus rounds.
The first bonus game is the Free Spins feature that is triggered when you land three scatter symbols on reels 3, 4 and 5 and you will be rewarded with 10 free spins.
Then there is the feature called ‘Mystery Reels’ where every spin on the base game or during the free spins round, one of the reels will be a mystery reel. These consist of stacked mystery symbols, and when the reels stop spinning the mystery symbol will transform into a randomly selected symbol on that payline for the chance of a bigger win.
The Bomber feature is another randomly triggered feature with a number of bombs occurring on the reels that will create at least ten overlaid mystery symbols. Anywhere up to five bombs will appear and offer 15 overlay mystery symbols potentially available as every bomb includes a cluster of mystery symbols. Then the reels spin with the mystery overlay symbols locked in place with a randomly chosen symbol in the same way as with the Mystery Reel feature.
NetEnt have done an excellent job with this game, with an amazing soundtrack and smooth graphics and gameplay that is sure to appeal to heavy metal fans or newcomers to the genre alike. There are some big wins to be found on the base game, and the three bonus games are a definite plus, making this game well worth trying.
