Motörhead™ Video Slot

 

“Born to lose. Live to win.”  (Lemmy Kilmister, 2010)

 

Completing the Netent Rocks™ trilogy after the hugely successful Guns N’Roses™ & Jimi Hendrix™ slots is set to be the new Motörhead Video Slot™. And again the Swedish studio had to do justice to the legacy of a legendary music icon in creating a slot fit to carry the name as no band epitomizes rock and roll more than Lemmy with the wild and dark Motörhead™.

 

Released into the online casino world in September 2016 a few months after the rather soft rock, flower power themed Jimi Hendrix Online Slot™ we expected something more heavy metal style that would shake-up our daily slotting sessions. And massively shake-up it did, join the one and only Ian Fraser “Lemmy” Kilmister and the boys in this rockin’ video slot with tracks like “Ace of Spades”, “Iron Fist” and “Overkill” blaring from speakers on the stage like background, Random Bomber Bonus Feature and Skull Mystery Symbols and Reels, all in a 76-payline slot with optional “Rock Mode” to get you up and head banging.

Slot Details

What better way can there be to incorporate into the slot design the stage, where Lemmy was at his best, than making it the dark and mysterious background of the game complete with speakers, amplifiers, instruments and a flashing light show. Give it on top an optional “Rock Mode” for players to turn on and the volume to max to listen to his most famous tracks and I will be saying that is “Ace of Spades”!

Motörhead™ is a 5-reel, 76-pay line (fixed) video slot with increasing rows from three on reel 1 to five on the last reel, reminiscent of the “Dazzle me” slot. Netent equipped it fittingly with Mystery Reels, a Random Bomber Bonus feature that shakes the whole screen, a Free Spins round and Wild substitutions. Bet sizes range from $0.20 – $200 that can be adjusted with denominations from 0.01 – 1.00 and bet levels from 1 – 10.

TRTP is a very comfortable 96.98% which together with the rather low line pays makes the slot a low-medium variance game. It comes in HTML5 format and is available for play on desktop, mobile and tablet across all OS platforms.

Pay symbols, all being stacked, are in ascending order the traditional horse shoe, four-leave clover and cherries at the low end and 7’s, bells and star at the high end. Top symbol is the man himself paying 7.5x bet for a five of a kind. Wild is nothing less than an “Ace of Spades” symbol and scatters are the Motörhead™ band logo with three needed to trigger the Free Spins.

Mystery Reel Feature

On every spin in the main game and Free Spins, unless the Bomber Feature is active, 1 or more reels will be Mystery Reels that hide a stacked reel of symbols. If the reels stop with mystery symbols on them, they transfer into 1 random symbol except for a Scatter. It gets interesting when 4 or even 5 reels light up into mystery reels and the screen becomes full of the bronze colored skulls which then has potential for mega or even super mega wins. A full screen of the lowest pay symbols will award 45.6 x bet while the top symbol would be 570x bet and is at the same time the maximum single spin payout for this slot.

Random Bomber Bonus Feature

Beware, flashing lights and loud music! The Bomber Feature can be activated randomly before a spin in the main game only. The screen will go dark and start to shake violently before the light show starts and up to 5 cluster bombs randomly splash on to the reels to create 10 – 15 overlay mystery symbols. Once the reels stop the bombs reveal the symbol and the respective win amount is paid. The main difference to the Mystery Reels is that the bombs cover mostly 4 to 5 reels giving the potential for multiple 4 or 5OAK. Free Spins cannot be activated during the Bomber Feature.

Free Spins round

Having 3 scatter land on reels 3, 4 and 5 will award 10 Free Spins with the mystery reels now containing Wild symbols increasing the chance for multiple line wins. Free Spins are played at the same bet level and coin value as the round that activated Free Spins and cannot be re-triggered.

Final Words

We hoped it would be heavy metal, loud, dark and mysterious and that is exactly what we got with the Motörhead Video Slot™. Die hard fans can turn on the “Rock Mode” and their speakers to maximum to listen to four of the most popular Lemmy songs including “Ace of Spades” and “Killed by Death”. Others can leave it off or if the game is still to lively and dark they can switch to the more serene “Dazzle me” slot.

Netent has certainly given it plenty of action effects and entertainment value while all the time paying a fitting homage to the legendary Lemmy and the band, however, the low line pays and the rather rare sight of a full screen of those bronze colored skulls won’t produce the mega wins I had hoped to find on at least one of the three Rock slots. It is, just as the other two in the trilogy, a rather low variance game that keeps things lively, even if it’s really only the mystery symbols that add a little drama on each spin. The upside is the fact that mostly it will give players lengthy sessions without a quick bust while still having potential for the odd super mega win.

Good Luck!
