GUNS N’ ROSES
Guns N’ Roses is one of the latest online slot machines produced by market-leader NetEnt. It’s a 5-reel, 20-(fixed)payline slot packed with bonus features, which include free spins rounds, second screen bonus games and randomly triggered activity on the reels. The way these are presented is skilfully integrated with the theme, making the whole experience even more exciting.
Right from the start, Guns N’ Roses fans will be mesmerised by this piece of beauty and will never grow tired of it. Even those who are not Guns N’ Roses aficionados will appreciate the quality of this product, and hopefully enjoy it too!
For those who don’t know who Guns N’ Roses are or may be too young to know them, they’re an American hard rock band from LA who started out in the mid-80s and were around in the 80s and 90s. They are one of the biggest-selling bands in music history, with their 6 albums shifting over 100 million copies worldwide.
Some of their major hits are featured in this game, such as ‘Welcome to the Jungle’, ‘November Rain’, ‘Sweet Child O’ Mine’, ‘Paradise City’ and also the more recent (and perhaps less successful) ‘Chinese Democracy’.
This is a textbook branded slot game. Action takes place against the backdrop of an open air stage, with a huge crowd watching the show. Whenever a winning combination is completed, the stage lights up and the concertgoers start to cheer and jump up.
Players can even pick the songs they want to hear in the background, although unfortunately the set list is limited to the 5 tracks listed above. Short clips showing performance of band members will be played throughout the bonus features as well as during the into, which one should really not skip!
Standard game payouts seem to be relatively low, but this shouldn’t alarm players as they will get the chance to win big thanks to the frequently-triggered bonus features.
The symbols associated with the biggest payout values correspond to the lead members of the band, such as lead vocalist Axl Rose, guitarist Slash and bassist Duff McKagan. In addition to that there are symbols depicting thematic guitar picks (x2), and ‘Roses’ playing card icons. The Wild symbol is represented by The Guns N’ Roses logo and it’s an expandable wild, which will cover the whole reel. It can replace all symbols except the bonus symbols described further down.
The highest paying standard symbol is Axl Rose, which is worth 750 coins when five such symbols appear on the reels in an active payline. While the potential winnings from the line payouts are good but not extraordinary, the bonus features will grant some pretty handsome rewards. The top fixed jackpot is worth no less than 225,000 coins!
One of three bonus features are triggered when the disc bonus symbol lands on reels 1, 3 and 5 at the same time. The player clicks to stop the Bonus Wheel from spinning and will get either a coin win or one of two bonus features, as indicated by the stylus when the wheel (a record, really) stops.
The Crowd Pleaser is a 3-level bonus round displayed on a second screen in which players have to pick musical instruments; one gets three picks at each level and progresses to the next level only after collecting the required amount of coins. Getting a free spin symbol in each level will award 10 Encore free spins. One of the band-member symbols will feature stacked on one of the reels in each spin, acting as a wild symbol if it lands on the other reels.
There are also some bonus features which are activated randomly. In the Appetite for Destruction feature (named after the band’s debut album), a wild in the shape of a cross incorporating up to 5 wild symbols appears superimposed on the reels.
The Legend Spins feature grants 3 spins with one of the band members appearing expanded across all rows. On the first spin the symbol is stacked on reel 3, on the second spin on reels 1 and 5 and on the third spin on reels 2 and 4. he stacked icons act as wild symbols. The Solo Multiplier feature randomly awards a win multiplier of x4 – x10 to any payline win.
