Begin with a Bang!
One of the biggest rock bands of all time are unlikely to lend their name to a game which is meek and mild, and that’s certainly not the case here. NetEnt start as they mean to go on as the game bursts into life with a recording of a live performance by the rock gods in concert.
After the unforgettable sound of Ace of Spades gradually fades you’ll be left to play the game which is dark, brooding and full of attitude – just as you might expect.
Motorhead have a huge army of fans, having sold over 30 million albums all over the world and with a history which spans more than 40 years. Legions of fans were devastated when lead singer Lemmy climbed his own stairway to heaven to join other metal and rock icons in the big concert in the sky. This game by NetEnt is a fitting tribute to a man who led from the front and showed generations of rock fans how it should be done.
And there’s plenty in this game to please Motorhead followers because as well as Ace of Spades there’s also Overkill, Killed by Death and Iron Fist. If you play this slot make sure you leave plenty of room around you for a spot of headbanging!
Lemmy was never a man to conform to stereotypes so it’s perhaps fitting that this slot has an unusual layout.
Although you’ll be playing on five reels, they’re not laid out in the standard 5×3. Reels 1 and 2 have three rows, reels 3 and 4 have four rows while reel 5 has five rows, creating a kind of lopsided pyramid design!
This unusual layout offers 76 paylines and when you win, you’ll be treated to a burst of song with Lemmy featuring once more with shouts of encouragement.
The reels are set against a live stage set-up, and even without the band in sight, you’ll feel part of the entourage as you play along.
Full of Features
NetEnt have done a great job with this game, creating lots of extra interest by introducing unique features.
The Mystery Reel means that every time you play – other than during the Bomber feature – you’ll have one reel which is stacked full of a combination of symbols. This dedicated mystery reel will have standard symbols as well as mystery symbols which are then spun. Once the reels have stopped if any of the mystery symbols are still visible they will transform into another random symbol.
The Bomber Feature (mentioned above) can be selected before any spin during regular play. When chosen, up to five bombs appear on the reels each containing a number of mystery symbols which are then spread over the reels. The turn then begins, proceeding in the same way as the Mystery Reel feature.
If you land three scatter symbols during play, you’ll win 10 Free Spins. This freebie can’t be retriggered during the Free Spins feature.
Choose Your Bet
You can choose to bet high or low on Motorhead, because although the paylines are fixed you still have plenty of options.
The coin value can be set between 0.01 and 1.00 with up to 10 coins playable per line. The small writing at the bottom of the screen shows the bet that you’ve selected so don’t worry, you won’t need to get your calculator out!
Motorhead are truly one of the overlords of the metal scene and this self-titled game from NetEnt is a great play for both new and existing fans alike. Lots of different features and quirky play means that this video slot really stands out from the crowd.
