Online video slot developers have always been very creative to find new themes for their games. Yet we think that the Rocks trilogy from Net Entertainment was one of the most awaited series in the world of gaming. There launched Guns N’ Roses slot, Jimi Hendrix slot and, finally, Motörhead video slot, which became the real treat for rock-loving players to celebrate the NetEnt Twenty Years of Innovation in 2016.
A First Look
As its title prompts, the Motörhead slot theme is based on the fabulous British rock-n-roll band. The introduction video sequence to the game is composed of the Motörhead live sessions pieces with Lemmy Kilmister in the foreground and we think it continues for quite a long time. However, it can be disabled for the future if you have had your fill only once. It's five black reels are placed on the live concert stage scenery, with amplifiers and speakers around them. It looks very realistic, especially if you have a winning line. Actually, the reels are unique and they do not look familiar – its five reels with colorful symbols are not of the same size from left to right: two of them feature only three rows, another two have four rows and the extreme right reel consists of five rows. During the game, the rock ’n’ roll music fans can get a kick out of the four most popular Motörhead pieces: Ace of Spades, Iron Fist, Killed by Death and Overkill. The slot is compatible to be played on desktops, smartphones, tablets and other devices. Its features and gameplay are all unique and that makes the game truly stand alone not only within the Rocks series but also among all the numerous NetEnt collection overall.
Tune Up & Play
Unfortunately, Lemmy is with us no longer, yet the paying symbols range from the Motörhead frontman himself who offers the biggest payout, through the icons of sevens, bells, stars and some lucky symbols such as cherries, horseshoes, and clover. Gamers are welcomed to play the game with 76 fixed paying lines and those can bring you from $0.20 up to $200 per spin. Before Motörhead starts rocking your soul, you are supposed to adjust your bet amounts first. You can regulate the wagered quantity of coins with the help of the Level chooser and it ranges from 1 up to 10. By means of the Coin Value button, you can choose the coin size that varies 0.01 up to 1. The Max Bet button enables the possibility to play the game at the highest bet level. Use the Auto-play button if you want to see the reels spinning with no interruption for a particular number of times, whereas clicking the Spin button makes the reels spinning just once.
Features & Symbols
The Ace of Spades icon is the slot’s Wild symbol. It is capable of taking the place of any other symbol, with the only exception – the Scatter. The Scatter looks like the Motörhead logo icon and it may take place only during the basic game. If you happen to see at least three Scatters simultaneously and they are in any position on the third, fourth and fifth reels, it activates the profitable feature of Ten Free Spins. However, you should keep in mind that it is impossible to have any extra Free Spins during this bonus feature. Except for the Scatter, any icon can become a mystery symbol. Besides, one or more reels can transform into the Mystery Reels after each spin during the basic game. It is a matter of chance to turn an ordinary spin into a huge winning. However, when there are several Mystery Reels start spinning in, the music in the background increases anticipation greatly and it is very effective. Immediately upon the reels finish spinning, all mystery symbols will turn into one odd conventional symbol. To all effects and purposes, the Mystery Reel bonus feature can be started during the ordinary game, the same as on Free Spins, unless the Bomber feature is triggered. In addition, the last but not the least, you can have a random bonus of the Bomber feature, which takes place before any spin on the basic game only. All of a sudden, a bike engine bellows, the lights are getting vague and an airborne attack alarm blares to launch the game. A lot of bombs emerge on the reels and they form minimum ten overlay Mystery symbols. Though to five bombs set with the maximum fifteen overlay Mystery symbols, and each bomb is able to carry a hip of Mystery symbols. When each explosive device has developed the overlay Mystery symbols, the reels start spinning with a symbol, chosen the way as in the Mystery Reel feature. That allows gamblers to raise the winning prospects.
The slot’s graphics are above all praise; its background music and sounding are well chosen. Yet, in our opinion, with its rich in the events reels, it is still a game, which could be just a bit more variable. Our guess is this is because of its terrifically high Return to Player percentage rate. Moreover, it is an official game; it is made to be liked because of its playing merits and original features rather than just a thrilling gambling action as some other games with big ambitions. It is not that there are no big wins available in the same manner as the Guns N’ Roses slot. It would not be difficult to reject the cash prospects of the game by the reason of the impact of the gameplay. If you are fortunate enough to catch a successful spinning round or the mystery reels end up in your favor with a big win, you can clearly pocket a number of coins playing this game. The most significant issue for Net Entertainment followers is which is the best game within the NetEnt Rocks series. We think most of us agree that unfortunately, the Jimi Hendrix slot sinks down to the very bottom of the pile, but the question remains: which is better, Guns N’ Roses or Motörhead? We are fond of both bands and it is not an easy task to prefer one to another. There are more features in Guns N’ Roses, but it looks like a bit eventless. As a rule, gamblers would like to see some more potential and so do we. Therefore, this makes the Motörhead video slot the best of the wonderful Rocks trilogy.
