There’s an invisible link between the brimstone of rock and the dark rooms of Vegas and Atlanta. Gaming software publishers visit every theme and slot machines featuring the biggest bands are legion. Rock’n’roll is not spared and there are Tribute Slots of the greatest rock bands. We often find NetEnt, which is powerful enough to pay for the licenses that allow it to use the titles, clips, photos and official logos of the bands. Less powerful studios compete creatively to pay tribute to their idols without having to pay for it. It is also known that Kiss has opened its own casino in the USA and this is no coincidence.
NetEnt’s rock trilogy: Motörhead, Jimi Hendrix, Guns n’ Roses
Making a slot machine that pays tribute to Motorhead is a daring move. If it is a major band in the world of rock and metal, it is not necessarily known by the general public. Their best-known song is Ace of Spades.Ideal to give its name to a slot machine! As for the mechanics, the payout rate is 98.7%. With 76 paylines, five reels and bets ranging from 10 cents to 1 euro, this is a slot that will appeal to casual players, but it is possible to play up to 200 dollars per spin with the different paylines.
Jimi Hendrix slot – a slot dedicated to one of the greatest guitarists of all time. Jimi Hendrix is a guitar hero, because he transformed the guitar technique, but he is also a symbol of the Woodstock years. NetEnt, instead of choosing the darker side of Jimi Hendrix, has chosen his more psychedelic and Peace & Love side. The entrance to the slot plunges you directly into the music of the guitarist and singer with his album Experience and its flagship song Vooddo Child.With a jackpot of $13,000 to hit, players may see stars and pink elephants. Bets range from 20c to $200. The bonuses are very generous and this offers a game mechanic where wins often fall.
Finally, the Guns’n Roses slot is created on the same principle, as a tribute to the Californian hard rock band – total immersion, a great mechanic with 5 reels and 20 paylines, free spins to be won and a 97% RDR. Read all about it in this article about Netent’s Guns n’ Roses slot. Finally Netent has continued the massacre with Ozzy Ozbourne, which we hate.
RockStar by BetSoft
Can you pull off a rock’n’roll themed slot without having an official licence? Betsoft Gaming has taken up the challenge with a slot that is simply called RockStar!
Well, all you have to do is play with the codes, model characters that look more or less like Rockstars like Axel Rose or Slash and create an unmistakable graphic. The graphics, the respect of the theme and the originality offer a slot machine that succeeds in its challenge. The latest bonuses are available, plus a jackpot of 2500 chips!
If players want to rock without playing on a licence, Rockstar is made for them.
Finally, let’s conclude by recalling other big names that have been immortalised on the reels, from Elvis (WMS Gaming) to Michael Jackson to Madonna, the material girl. As for the Rolling Stones, it’s the Aristocrat studio that has dedicated a slot to them. On Reels of Rock by Saucify, we’ll find Jim Morrison, Sid Vicious, John Bonham and Janis Joplin, who have also passed into the pantheon of virtual jackpots!
