There are plenty of themes that can be used for slot games. Mythology, fairy tales and hit movies are regularly used and so is Rock N’ Roll. The games plug into the massive fanbases that the rock groups and singers have. There’s also the opportunity to have a great soundtrack for the game. Let’s look at some of the top Rock N’ Roll slot games.
You’d be bats not to play this slot game based on the Black Sabbath singer Ozzy Osbourne. This slot has been released by NetEnt and has been a big hit with his many fans. Given his reputation as the Prince of Darkness, it’s not surprising that this game has a rather gothic look to it with lightning strikes galore. There are several symbols featuring Ozzy in various poses. Other symbols include a vampire bat which is the wild (and that’s before being bitten by Ozzy), a devil train, skulls, crucifixes and ravens).
With some of Ozzy’s top hits being played, this is a game that his fans are going to adore. There’s also a few bats sounds too, they get everywhere in this game. Also popular are the Free Spins, Re-Spins, Bonus Bet and a Symbol Charge-Up feature. All those features can help players get some great wins from this slot.
Few people have ever managed to play the guitar like the late, great Jimi Hendrix. He was a great singer too and hits such as ‘Purple Haze’ and ‘Foxy Lady’ are still played on any rock station worth their salt.
Again, this comes from NetEnt who do love their rock-related slot games. The design of this game is a bit basic but easy on the eye. The good news for any fan of the rock guitarist is that the soundtrack features some of his most memorable songs, so get that air-guitar ready.
Whereas the Ozzy Osbourne game has a dark look to it, this game takes us back to the 1960s. That means a psychedelic feel to the graphics with a dream-like desert in the background. Symbols include the great man himself who is the wild (and boy was he wild!), a vinyl disc, a white guitar and to show it’s the 1960s, a flower and a peace logo. Whilst Jimi Hendrix may have been one of the greatest guitar players ever, the jury is still out as to if this game will be one of the best online real money slots.
The game includes several bonus features named after his famous hits. For example, there’s the Crosstown Traffic Free Spins and Little Wing Free Spins as well as the Purple Haze feature.
Guns N’ Roses
Lovers of rock and guitars will adore the Guns N’ Roses slot game. NetEnt excelled themselves with this release and if you love their music, then this is for you. Players can click on the ‘Set List’ button to either have one of their tunes played or just be greedy and choose all the five available songs.
A Guns N’ Roses concert is always a thrilling experience. It’s logical therefore that the backdrop to this slot is a massive floodlit stage with thousands of fans going crazy. They get even more excited when you are lucky enough to get a win.
Symbols include the members of the band, two guitar plectrums, a record, the Guns N’ Roses logo and even the lower paying symbols get in on the act. The playing card symbols are all adorned with roses. Special features include a Bonus Wheel and again the features reflect the theme of the game. They include the Encore Free Spins, Crowd Pleaser feature and the Appetite for Destruction Wild.
Elvis the King
You can’t write about Rock N’ Roll without mentioning its King. Elvis Presley may have died over 40 years ago, but his music remains as popular as ever as one generation after another discover his music. It’s no surprise therefore that there have been several Elvis Presley themed slot games.
‘Elvis the King’ is an IGT slot game and is set in a 1950s jukebox and there are some classic Elvis songs on the soundtrack. With 25 paylines, there are plenty of chances to get winning combinations. The symbols include four that are of Elvis himself as well as sunglasses, shoes (blue suede of course), a gold disc and a leather jacket.
It’s jam packed with bonus features, some appearing randomly with others needing to be triggered. There’s the Burning Love Mystery Wild, Jukebox Picker, Heartbreak Hotel and Viva Las Vegas Free Spins round, so opportunities galore to get a win. No wonder that just like Elvis himself, this game is a big hit.
With other slots including Motorhead, Megadeth and Kiss, Rock N’ Roll is likely to remain a popular theme for slot designers, though there’s no sign of the LadBaby slot game just yet.
