Motörhead were one of the biggest and most well-known heavy metal bands to ever exist, fronted by enigmatic bassist, singer and songwriter, Lemmy Kilmister. He would continue to be the sole constant member of the band from their formation back in 1975 right up until his death in 2015. The band are recognised for their well-known songs, such as Ace of Spades, Overkill and Sympathy for the Devil, and would no doubt be making music still to this day if the frontman was still alive. As one of their branded music themed slot games, Netent crafted a dedicated slot offering to Motorhead filled with musical tones from the band. It’s all presented as part of a stage show, featuring large speakers, a guitar, a microphone stand and more paraphernalia from a concert, with the hazy shadows of a drum kit in the background as well.

Get Ready to Rock!

The game itself is presented on a layout of five reels, but the rows are stunted with the first two columns having three rows, the second two columns having four rows and the last one having five rows. There are also 20 different pay lines included in the layout as well, and these are not able to be adjusted in any way, so you’ll always be wagering on this amount. The icons of the game will be displayed on these reels, and these take on the look of a traditional set of icons for the most part. This means that you’ll be spinning through symbols of cherries, golden stars, bells, a four-leaf clover, a silver horseshoe and the number 7. Lemmy also provides a standard icon, offering the highest standard icon pay out.

You can customise the game somewhat in terms of the wager that you’re able to place, and this begins with being able to alter the value of a single coin. This starts from a minimum of €0.01 and increases up to a maximum level of €1. Meanwhile, the bet level that the game offers up can move between one and 10, and if you do choose to push both of these up to their maximum levels you will be playing a maximum overall wager of €200 per spin. If you want to increase you wager up to this amount in an instant, you can utilise the ‘Max Bet’ button to do so.

The King of Kings!

You can’t attend a rock concert without all the proper accessories, and this game makes sure that you’re ready to rock on with all of its special features. The first of these is its wild icon, and this is presented in the form of the ‘Ace of Spades‘ symbol. Should this make an appearance on the reels, it will substitute for all other icons in order to form a winning combination. The only exception to this rule is the scatter symbols of the game.

And speaking of the scatter symbol, this is represented by the Motorhead band logo. These will pay out wherever they show up on the reels, and if three of them show up on reels three, four and five in the main game you will be rewarded with a total of 10 freespins. During this round, the game’s Mystery Reels feature is also activate and can consist of both mystery symbols and wild symbols.

As far as the Mystery Reel feature itself is concerned, on every spin during the main game and freespins, unless the game’s bomber feature is active, one or more of the reels will become a mystery reel. This ensures that after the reels have finished spinning, if there are mystery symbols on the reels, these will transform in to one random symbol, except for a scatter.

Finally, the aforementioned Bomber Feature can be activated randomly before a spin during the main game. Each bomb that appears consists of a cluster of mystery symbols and these create at least 10 overlay symbols. Once each bomb has generated its overlay symbol, the reels set off spinning with a symbol being chosen in the same way as in the Mystery Reel Feature.

To Summarise

What could be better than playing a slot game whilst being accompanied by Motorhead music? We can’t think of anything – and what’s more, this game has some great additional features included in it as well, meaning that you’ll have some great and entertaining game to play throughout and have no reason to browse other online slots reviews.
