Finishing off the trilogy of NetEnt rock and roll video slots is a game about the famous band Motorhead. Certainly, the most aggressive rock music of the bunch, so much so that it might not be everyone’s cup of tea. It seems the developers agree with us because you can choose to toggle whether or not music plays while spinning. More choices are always good, so we support this decision.
Of course, it wouldn’t be a fun slot if it only allowed you to turn music on or off. Motorhead’s RTP is 96.98%, which is almost one percentage point higher than average. It also has multiple special features to keep players invested. Guaranteed mystery reels, a Bomber bonus and free spins are all available to enhance your gameplay and wins. With their help, you can win the jackpot, worth 570x your total stake.
We recommend this game to fans of the band, and to Indian casino players who love the mystery symbols mechanic. Two out of the three special features in Motorhead create mystery icons, while the third enhances them further. The slot has medium volatility, so you can expect decent wins during normal gameplay. The jackpot could be better, but it works well with how frequent wins are in this game.
Coins range between ₹1.00 to ₹100.00 per spin, which is average for slots by this developer. By changing their coin value and bet level, gamblers are able to adjust their total bet, too. Wagers can be set as low as ₹20, or you can go high and bet ₹2000 for each spin. This kind of bet spread is fantastic, as it allows both casual players and high rollers to enjoy themselves.
Symbol design is one area that we feel is noticeably flawed. NetEnt seems to have gone with gambling icons like four-leaf clovers, cherries, horseshoes, lucky sevens, stars, and silver bells. We don’t think this was a bad idea, but they should have gone with playing card symbols instead. After all, Motorhead’s popular song is called Ace of Spades. We would have preferred to see diamonds, spades, hearts, and clovers alongside band members compared to the current line-up. The maximum prize you can win is worth 570x your total bet.
Mystery Reels: Every spin during normal gameplay or free spins is guaranteed to have at least one mystery reel appear. That said, the mystery reel will not always cover the entirety of the reel, so you might only get one or two transforming symbols. All mystery icons will always transform into the same symbol.
Bomber Bonus: This special feature is activated randomly during normal gameplay. It will drop multiple bombs on the board, creating at least ten overlaid mystery icons.
Free Spins: Collect three Scatters on the third, fourth and fifth reel to win ten free spins. While extra turns are being played, mystery reels can also display Wild symbols, increasing their value.
We have to admit, we did not expect to love this game as much as we did. The graphics aren’t bad, but they aren’t as mind-blowing as the usual NetEnt fare is. It has some cool effects, like spitting flames and the rolling fog present on the stage. But icon designs are boring and feel like a missed opportunity. Still, we cannot bring ourselves to dislike it, not when it offers such a fantastic playlist of rock and roll.
We wouldn’t call Motorhead bonus-centric, but they certainly help. Free spins remove the cost of wagering and increase the effectiveness of mystery symbols, making them a godsend. It also helps that you are guaranteed to have one mystery reel, even if it doesn’t always cover the whole thing.
At the end of the day, the slot is thrilling to play, despite only having medium volatility. The RTP is in your favor, and the soundtrack will keep you pumped through the whole thing. It’s an acquired taste, but if you like it, you will spend an ungodly amount of time playing it. Trust us, we speak from experience.
