If you like the Guns N’ Roses slot, check out the following slots:
The first clue that this is no ordinary slot comes in the fact that you’re greeted with ‘Sweet Child of Mine’ and clips from one of their concerts while the game is loading up. The next is that you can choose which one of five songs of theirs you want to listen to while you’re playing. Sadly, when playing on mobile it’s ‘Welcome to the Jungle’ or nothing but don’t let that spoil the fun for you.
As per usual on a NetEnt game, selecting the Bet Level and the coin value determines your stake per spin. As is also the norm, the Max Bet and Autoplay functions are also available. The first one cuts to the chase and places the biggest possible bet on your next spin, the second means you can choose how many spins you want to be played automatically without having to press the spin button yourself.
The usual playing cards are there as low-value symbols but this being a Guns N’ Roses slot, there are some roses around them. The more valuable the symbol, the more roses there are.
Next up are a blue and a red plectrum (the little piece of plastic used to play the guitar for non-music fans) and then it’s the boys themselves. Duff, then Slash and inevitably Axl is the highest paying symbol of the lot.
It’s a 5×3 reel slot and remembers that in addition to choosing your song when the game first loads up, you can choose to change it to something else whenever you wish. If you don’t it will just carry on going through the five songs in turn.
Most slots have one Wild but then again, this isn’t most slots.
The slot’s logo appears now and then and when it does, it expands to fill the whole reel which can only be of great benefit.
Strictly speaking this could come under the bonus features section but then again, it’s all about the Wilds so we’ll mention it here instead.
Randomly triggered, it will give you three free spins within the base game. On each spin, it will turn one of the band members into an Expanded Wild.
Appetite for Destruction Wild
Taking the shape of a Cross, it randomly appears on the reels, occupying the space of 5 symbols across Reels 2 to 4. Sometimes it will land fully, other times partially, on the screen. Hint: it’s better if it lands fully.
A free spin follows and if that cross lands fully you’re likely to get a really big win. If it lands partially, you’ll still walk away with something decent. So, a case of ‘Don’t Cry’, if it’s the latter.
Ok, let’s move not the ‘proper’ bonus features or to be precise, those that don’t necessarily involve Wilds.
Solo Multiplier Feature
It wouldn’t be a Gun N’ Roses slot without a Solo something, would it? Slash just wouldn’t allow it.
If you have a three of a kind or four of a kind wins, occasionally a multiplier (4x to 10x) appears on the screen and it will apply not just to the biggest win displayed, but to all of them.
It’s about as rare as an apology from Axl but when it does appear, it can give your bank a big boost out of nowhere.
Bonus Features (x3)
Activated by getting three Bonus symbols (represented by an old school LP), you’ll get to a Wheel of Fortune. Spin it and one of these three will come your way.
Encore Free Spins
One of the three rockers will be an Expanded Wild for the next spin. Except that’s not the full story. Let’s say Duff is Wild on Reel; if he appears anywhere else he’ll also be a Wild there as well.
Theoretically, you could have six or seven Wilds on the screen at any given time. No wonder this feature often brings wins of 50 to 100 times your bet. The rarest of the three.
A click-me-bonus feature where you progress through a series of levels. The further you get, the more you win. At each level, you’ll be asked to pick three musical instruments. If with these picks you get enough points to progress to the next level then, great. You will.
Along the way, you accumulate points and if you get to Level 3, you’ll have all your accumulated coins instantly doubled.
Along the way, you can also pick up free spin symbols. Get three of those and it’s time for some Encore Free Spins (see above).
A straightforward cash prize with no further action. This is admittedly the booby prize of the three but sometimes it’s a decent prize anyway.
We’ve already mentioned that you can’t hear all the songs when playing on mobile. And it’s also true that when playing on mobile, you don’t see all of the clips from concerts that appear as a way of celebrating a big win. It’s a bit of a shame but not the end of the world. It’s certainly not to say that playing this slot on mobile isn’t worth your while. It is.
It has an RTP of 96.98% and is rated ‘medium’ in terms of its volatility.
When Guns N’ Roses was released in January 2016, it’s not an exaggeration to say it was the most early awaited slot release in history. Maybe it’s because so many different types of players were bound to love it: Guns N’ Roses fans, NetEnt lovers, players who adore lots of different bonus features. To name but a few.
It’s fair to say no-one was disappointed because right here we have one of the most entertaining, thrill-a-minute slot games ever to hit an online casino.
If you love exciting slots, it would almost be criminal to not try it even once.
