Guns n' Roses Slot Review
Do you know where you are? Well, hopefully, you do. Otherwise, you are lost or should probably see a doctor. To reference another famous refrain from Guns n' Roses' classic "Welcome to the Jungle," this slot definitely has lots of fun and a few games built in which should have you rocking along as you spin. The cool thing about this eponymous slot from software giants NetEnt is that it features an awesome soundtrack from the rock legends' back catalogue.
When playing the game, you can open up a setlist and choose the track you would like to play as you spin. In this regard, the Guns n' Roses slot makes it on to the lists of many eager fans who were endeared to the band throughout their glory days from the late 80's to early 90's. There is an excellent design which is themed around the band and a stage setup, which is always good from the perspective of a music fan.
What to Expect
Design-wise, Guns N’ Roses slot machine is pretty well crafted and colourful. The character symbols -which are members of the band - look cool and sit well over the reels. In addition, there are album cover symbols such as "G n' R Lies" and "Use Your Illusion II" as well as the low-value card symbols which are often found on online slots. You can also expect, as mentioned above, an awesome soundtrack.
NetEnt’s input in this game is everything which you would expect from a top title produced by the leading software outfit. The Animations are cool and everything flows as easily and with the quality of one of Guns N Roses' albums. Well, almost. We wouldn't quite put "Chinese Democracy" or "The Spaghetti Incident" into the same category, but other fans of the supergroup may disagree.
Guns N’ Roses slot has plenty of bonus rounds. For a NetEnt game, this will probably surprise as they are not regarded as a software provider which builds so many bonuses into a title at once. We certainly are not complaining, however, as it gives this game an excellent level of variety.
In terms of bonus rounds, you will need three or more bonus symbols, which are represented as records, will trigger the game’s special features which are the Wheel of Fortune, or Record of Fortune. You can earn yourself everything from a random multiplier win, a Crowd Pleaser bonus game or the Encore Free spins bonus.
Crowd Pleaser Bonus
The Crowd Pleaser bonus is a Pick and Win Bonus round where you will initially have three picks of eight hidden symbols. Within these hidden symbols can be additional picks or coins.
There is a chance to move forward to levels 2 and 3 of the bonus round. The further you go, the more you can win.
Encore Free Spins
This where the spins can pay big, especially with the presence of the Stacked Wild on each spin. This is spread over the entirety of the reel, which can win you big, courtesy of Slash, Axl Rose or Duff McKagan.
Wild & Expanding Wild
The Guns N’ Roses symbol is wild and can appear within the bonus rounds, mutating into an Expanding Wild which covers the reels.
Appetite for Destruction Wild
The Appetite for Destruction Wild feature can pay big by combining with other wilds to bring you a healthy number of coins for your troubles.
The Solo Multiplier pays x4 and x10 and randomly appears sometimes when you have 3 matching symbols on a winning pay line. The only downside to this bonus is that it can often slow things down, which isn't great for those who like rapid play and not to wait around.
The Legend Re-Spins award 3 free spins with a character stacked wild on every spin. This is a good way to earn some serious coin if everything falls into place. Although there is a better chance of winning big on some of the other features which are contained in the game.
The Guns n' Roses slot enjoys massive popularity partly due to its association with the Los Angeles-based Roc Mega group. The various bonuses which can be triggered are engaging and there is so much going on that it can be easy to drift off and remember Axl & Co's heyday on the heavy rotation of their videos on MTV. For a colossal rock band, a slot taking on its name should deliver, and we feel that it does.
Although it is far from perfect, this is one of the better rockband-themed slots playable online. Others in the same category are notoriously overdone, with little to no effort paid to the game itself. Guns n' Roses slot, on the other hand, brings rock band experience to life with NetEnt's skilful crafting.
