About Guns ‘n Roses Slot
With the number of video slot games being released in the recent years, it’s difficult to predict a game that will engage players for years and prove to be a favourite among the avid slot players. Sometimes, developers have produced games jam-packed with experimental ideas and bonus games, yet when it finally makes its way to the market it flops. This is however not the case for NetEnt, a company that seems to have a good understanding of what their players want and as such deliver a winning formula.
Like most of the NetEnt video slots, Guns n’ Roses slot was a highly anticipated release. It was the 2nd release in the company’s Rock series, which had already included Jimi Hendrix Slot – which is equally as entertaining and exciting. The trilogy, which also included Motorhead Slot, was released in a bid to celebrate 20 years of NetEnt being in the industry. As this was a great milestone to achieve, NetEnt invested everything they had to ensure the games were a success.
So what makes this game such a great game and how does it fair on in terms of in-game bonuses and game mechanics?
Guns ‘n Roses Slot Mechanics
Guns ‘n Roses is set in a big arena where the iconic rock band is performing a gig. You are located about 15 rows back from the main stage, looking up towards the lofty reels and bright lights of the largest concert on earth. Watch in awe as the game’s stacked wilds, featuring Duff McKagan, Slash and Axl Rose spring to life on the five reels as you jam to five of Guns ‘n Roses greatest tunes through the game’s changeable in-game playlist.
Guns ‘n Roses has five reels, three rows and 20 paylines which host a mind-bending variety of special in-game features: a Crowd-pleaser bonus round, Appetite for Destruction Wild, Encore Extra Spins game, Legend Spins, Solo Multipliers, Expanding Wilds and Regular Wilds. Just when you thought this is all that’s there to receive from Guns ‘n Roses, NetEnt has decided to spoil us by giving Guns ‘n Roses a high RTP of 96.93% and a high prize of €150,000, which you can win with as little as €0.20 per spin or a high of €200 per spin.
Appetite for Destruction WILD
We can comfortably say that the headlining act of the Guns ‘n Roses slot is the appetite for destruction wild feature. This feature is randomly activated and usually appears randomly during the base game. Once activated, a rocking wild overlay will appear in the middle reels, giving you the opportunity to scoop massive wins.
Keep your eyes peeled out for the game’s scatter bonus symbol, which is triggered anytime the bonus symbol appears on the 1st, 3rd or 5th reel. Once active, you have to stop the spinning wheel to receive cash prizes or trigger the Encore/Crowd Pleaser bonus game.
The legend spins is also a random feature that’s randomly triggered during the base game. Once active, you’ll be awarded three free spins, each one complemented with one or two stacked symbols.
Guns N’ Roses Solo Multiplier
The solo multiplier feature is yet another randomly triggered bonus feature. These multipliers can appear at any one point during gameplay (besides the Appetite for Destruction and Legend Spins game). Once active, any wins that you land will be subjected to a 10× multiplier.
Crowd-Pleaser Bonus Round
This is an interactive ‘Pick and Click’ bonus game that awards you with a total of eight picks across three different levels of progressively large prizes. During this game, you can easily win more free spins, and if you manage to amass 800 coins on Level 3, you’ll see your win get doubled!
Encore Extra Spins
Just when you thought all the features were done with the crowd pleaser bonus game, Guns ‘n Roses video slot makes a return to the stage with the Encore Extra Spin game. You’ll be rewarded with a maximum of 10 free spins and a stacked wild symbol joining the party on reels 2, 3 and 4 to increase your chances of winning big.
Guns ‘n Roses Set List
One of the factors that make the slot Guns ‘n Roses exciting to play is the music, a feature that has been beautifully included in the game so that you can play as you jam to some of the bands greatest tunes. We loved how easy it is to pick your tune (especially if you are playing on your PC). Choose between Sweet Child ‘O Mine, Chinese Democracy, November Rain, Paradise City or Welcome to the Jungle to accompany your rock-tastic spins!
When you fire up the game’s reels, you’ll be welcomed to the game’s five reel jungle with Welcome to the Jungle; then when the track comes to an end, the next tune will play if it has finished downloading. If you hadn’t picked any other song to play, you’d be taken back to Welcome to the Jungle. There’s also a loop button in the setlist section that lets you loop one song or all the songs if you wish to listen to all the tracks in succession.
The video slot game, Guns ‘n Roses, is as energetic and breathless as the rock band itself. NetEnt has captured the essence of the band perfectly in their design, while the bonus features and gameplay will warrant that the game proves to be as timeless among slots fanatics as the classic lyrics composed by the band.
