Guns N’ Roses- A Rock God of a Game
NetEnt’s Guns N’ Roses slot is something else when it comes to slot play- forget the quiet calm of a magical game and prepare yourself for the onslaught of pure rock! This slot game is a homage to one of the biggest rock bands of all time-Guns N’ Roses and it’s got a ton of attitude that you won’t find on other NetEnt titles like the Hansel and Gretal slot machine and Starburst, excellent games that they are.
Before a single reel has rolled, you are thrown headlong into the glory and hedonism of pure rock, with a selection of clips of the band members rocking out and music to knock your socks off!
And it gets better; NetEnt has created a seriously smooth slot with plenty of extras, so you don’t need to be a fan of the band to get into this game.
Look and Feel
This is a slot that does a good job of creating the buzz and big band vibe of a stadium rock performance for the band. Here the reels are set in a gig, with a vast crowd of fans who jump around if you’re on a winning streak, in the darkened stadium. If you are looking for mellow music, head to the Copy Cats slot as this baby is volume 11!
As you’d expect, this game’s soundtrack is a montage of the very best in head- banging and butt-shaking Guns N’ Roses classic hits, with tracks like Welcome to the Jungle, helping to set the tempo of fast and furious slot play. And it gets better, with a set list of five of the band’s biggest hits for you to select the music to accompany your slot play- a pretty nifty addition to personalising your play.
Guns N’ Roses slot is a 3 row, 5 reel and 20 paylines slot game.
The high value icons are, as you‘d expect, the rock god band members, Axl Rose, Slash and Duff McGagan and two guitar plectrums. The lower value icons are the Ace through 10 of the card deck. It’s all high octane action- if you want a calm game head for the Legend of Shangri-La slot because you’re going to be rocking out on this one!
The slot’s Wild is the band’s famed logo of guns entwined with roses, and substitutes for all icons except the bonus. The Wild can turn up on any reel, except for on reel 3 in the Bonus game, Appetite for Destruction- more of this later. There’s also a bonus icon, a record, which is the trigger for the main bonus game and will be spotted on reels one, three and five.
Appetite for Destruction?
Guns N’ Roses slot has a few good tricks up its sleeve during the base game as well as in its bonus mode. Keep your eyes open for Appetite for Destruction, Solo Multiplier and Legend Spin.
Appetite for Destruction, one of the band’s classic hits, is the name of this feature in the base game, and is basically when a huge cross shape with skulls of the band members pops up on the third reel , unsurprisingly, this substitutes for all other icons, except the record disc bonus symbol.
Solo Multiplier is a gift worthy of rocking out! Randomly, after a spin, you will find that one of your icons is chosen and a nifty multiplier added to that icon, it can be a factor of 4-10 so well worthy of some serious rocking!
The Legend Spin is randomly activated and brings the rock gods back to the reels with three free spins. One of the band members will appear on the first spin as a stacked Wild taking over reel 3 – it looks great! The second spin will bring stacked Wilds onto reels 1 and 5, and the final will bring the boys onto reel 2 and 4.
Boom! Bonus time!
Once you’ve landed the bonus icon on reels 1, 3 and 5 then you’re heading for the big fun in this game. You have the chance to spin the wheel and enter one of the three bonus features: Crowd Pleaser, Encore Free Spins and Coin Wins.
Crowd Pleaser involves three levels and is essentially a picking game. You make three choices and these each reveal a point score, if you reach a high enough number of points, then you can progress to the next level of the game, which is similar. If you can amass a whopping 800 coins, you can double your win and there’s more. If you can collect three free spin icons during this feature then you will access 10 free spins.
The Coin Wins is as simple as winning the coin amount that is displayed on the Bonus Wheel. And last but not least, the Encore Free Spins.
Encore Free Spins is a great one for the band’s fans as during the feature’s 10 free spins, a band member pops up during the spin to turn one of reels 2, 3 or 4 into an expanding Wild with them taking over the reel!
Guns N’ Roses slot has enough extras to fill a stadium and with its slick interface, impressive graphics and rockin’ sound track, NetEnt’s slot has managed to create a slot behemoth, worthy of the band’s legendary status!
