Motorhead is a video slot, based on the rock band, developed by NetEnt. It has 5 reels and 76 fixed paylines, with bets starting from 20p a spin. On stage with the band, amongst frontman Lemmy, you have the potential to trigger a variety of bonus features. From free spins to mystery reels, a bonus feature and wilds, there are lots of different ways to rock out with the Motorhead slot machine.
The Motorhead slot opens up with original footage of the real band in action. Here, we’ve got a stage full of instruments, speakers and more importantly, symbols. The reels are unique in their design, as they get longer as you go from left to right. This is a fantastic quality slot, almost looking as though we’re there in front of the stage. The dry ice moving across the stage adds some movement before the band comes on.
If you are ready to get your head-bang on, you can switch on rock mode in the bottom right-hand corner and the band’s music will start to play.
Get Ready to Rock
The 76 paylines are fixed and encompassed within a 20-credit bet. All paylines will be in play throughout.
First, you can set your coin value, which can be a figure between 1p and £1. The amount you choose here will be multiplied by the 20 credits to create your coin bet.
If you want to add extra weight to your bet, you can increase the bet level. This will, in essence, add an extra lot of coins on top of your initial bet, depending on how much you increase the level. The figure you choose here will be multiplied by your coin bet to create the total bet.
Check on your bet before you start belting out the tunes. It will be displayed beneath the spin button, which you can then hit to get the reels rocking and rolling.
Some Reel Good Wins
With the cool and unique layout of the reels, you may wonder how the paylines work. Fear not, Motorhead fans, it’s the same as usual, there are just more variations. Winning paylines will need to start from the furthest left reel and work their way across.
With most symbols, you will need to match three or more on a payline to win, but the biggest prize payouts will come when you land five matching symbols all the way across from left to right.
Lemmy, it goes without saying, is the most valuable here. He is the exception to the rule, meaning that you can win by just landing two of him on a payline. Top payouts for Lemmy, if you can land five-of-a-kind on a winning line, you could win up to 150 times your coin bet.
A bronze star is next in worth and landing five of these across a payline can award a maximum payout of 50 times the coin bet.
The traditional slot symbols of the bells and the 7’s have been given a rock & roll makeover to make them fit with the style of this game. Matching five identical symbols all the way from right to left can award up to 30 times the value of your coins staked.
Lastly, we have the horseshoes, cherries and shamrocks. Win up to 12 times your coin bet if you land five matching symbols across a payline.
Rock & Roll Bonuses
The Motorhead slot brings us four potential bonus features to be activated throughout gameplay.
Ace of Spades
The famous Ace of Spades, upon a shiny background, is the Motorhead video slot’s wild symbol. A wild can substitute for any of the standard symbols in play, helping you to create winning paylines if they can land in the perfect spot.
Motorhead’s snaggletooth symbol is the scatter in this game. Land three of the scatters anywhere across reels 3, 4, and 5 to activate 10 free spins.
During your free spins, you may also be helped out by some of the other bonus features.
On every spin, one or more of the reels will become a mystery reel. Mystery reels are covered with a bronze symbol and only revealed as the reels stop. All mystery symbols on show will transform into one random standard symbol.
The more mystery reels you can land in one spin, the higher your chances of creating a winning line.
This feature can be randomly activated before any spin in the main game.
Each ‘bomb’ brings with it a cluster of mystery symbols, and they can create at least 10 mystery symbols.
Once the positions have been selected, the reels will spin as usual, working in the same way as the mystery reels feature.
A Hellraiser of a Game
Every aspect of this game is a brilliant marriage of the nature of the band and a fantastic slot game. With nods to the band and their songs, the Motorhead video slot is likely to appeal to fans of the band.
Even people who aren’t particularly fans of the band can enjoy the visuals and features, and simply turn off rock mode to silence the band sound-tracking the game.
The combination of mystery reels, wilds and free spins creates a melting pot of opportunity and variation in each play of the game.
Return to Player (RTP) with the Motorhead slot is 96.98%.
