Spin that reel: Motörhead casino slot review

We all waited for this explosive game and now that Motörhead is finally here, we wasted no time reviewing it. After Jimi Hendrix and Guns’n Roses, this is the third slot from Netent in a series that is based on a famous, or should we say notorious, rocker / rock band. Lenny and his buddies always guaranteed a good game of rock (and roll) which is regarded by some people as ‘noise’. If you agree with the latter, we recommend you to choose another slot because the use of sound, light and animation are present in a large degree. You even get warned about this at the beginning of the game.

The design of Motörhead is a stage-setting and it looks fairly dark. No doubt this is done deliberately as the light shows really pop out. The entire slot game breathes hard rock and where the design might be somewhat decent, this is compensated by the music and sound effects in this game. Sometimes they also throw in a one-liner of Lenny, but the electric guitars are taking over almost everywhere.

Motörhead slot standard game

We’ve played this game twice and the results were very different which ensures that we are actually not that good yet know what to think really Motörhead. But let’s start at the beginning. The lock is one of the category five reels with a 3-3-4-4-5 building. From left to right you will have 2 rows x 3, 2 x 4 rows and 1 row of 5. This is something that you as a player should take a game like “when pigs fly” has a similar structure (coincidentally Netent ).

The symbols on the reels range from well-known slot symbols like cherries and sevens to more luck-related symbols such as horseshoes and four leaf clovers. And, of course, front man Lenny is present. The Ace of Spades symbol is the wild and therefore there is also a prominent place set aside for the biggest hit of the legendary rock band. Additionally spins regularly go in the “on fire” mode where you can score pretty big wins in the standard game. The more roles jump into this mystery mode the more chance you have, especially if the roles start all the way from the left. During the spin the rolls change into golden skulls and seem to be on fire. Eventually they all change into one and the same symbol.

Explosive bonus features

With the bonus features, we get straight back to our mixed feelings when playing this game. The first time it seemed as if the slot had something to prove because the big wins, free spins and bonus features were all over the place and it sometimes looked like a rock concert on our screen. With our second run this was totally not the case and the game was even a little boring to play.

These three symbols give you 10 free bonus spins. In this bonus mode, the wheels have sticky symbols, which can ensure that you can grab huge profits.

This one came a bit as a surprise the first time it happened: the reels just turned around and all of a sudden the entire game window starts to vibrate. This is getting more intense and you hear the sound of a bomber flying over. Meanwhile, the screen has been turned into a nice red alert light show and three cluster bombs fall into the screen as blind random symbols in the form of skulls on your reels. If this works out in your favour, you pick up a nice big win.

The power of music and sound effects

What makes a great contribution to the fun factor of Motörhead is the diversity of bonuses and of course the music. If the slot is a bit ‘on a roll’ then it clearly shows Netent knows how to build a nice slot because a lot happens on your screen while the music blasts out of your speakers. For us the contrast between our first and second round of play was very big, but since we always look at the positive side, this slot gets a thumbs up from us.
