Best Rock Bands in Online Slot Games

Online slot themes transcend numerous genres from adventure, greek mythology, safari/jungle to Irish luck, which are a few of the favourites to have graced the reels. Branded slots are common too and are usually inspired by popular movies and TV shows like The Slotfather by Betsoft and Microgaming’s Game of Thrones. 

Famed musicians and rock bands have also inspired various slot releases. From Guns N’ Roses to Motorhead, Kiss and Jimi Hendrix, these rock legends are some of the biggest names to have ever walked the face of the earth. These slots are available at the best mobile casinos, and you’ll get to hear lots of classic rock music, making the gameplay experience all the more worthwhile.

The best rock bands to inspire online casino slot titles include:

  • Kiss
  • Guns N’ Roses
  • Motorhead
  • Jimi Hendrix
  • Megadeth
  • Twisted Sister

Kiss                    

This is probably the most recognizable rock band ever. KISS shot to fame in the ‘70s with their hard rock sound, over the top outfits, and face paint. A typical stage performance would feature smoking guitars, pyrotechnics, fire breathing, and rocket shooting. They remain one of the best-selling rock bands of all time with over 75 million records and dozens of gold and platinum-selling hits.

WMS released the branded KISS slot in 2013 with 5 reels and 100 paylines. The developer replicates many elements of the band in the graphic designs and adds in some actual video clips from the band’s live concerts. Starchild, Demon, Catman, and Spaceman make appearances on the reels with all the makeup and glamour they are known for in real life. The presence of a Colossal reel makes gameplay much more exciting. With multipliers, stacked symbols, and free spins, the game offers a max win of 125,000 coins.

Guns N’ Roses

One of the greatest bands to inspire rock fans across the globe is Guns N’ Roses. Since forming in 1985, Axl Rose and the gang have brought legendary hits like “November Rain,” “Sweet Child’ O Mine,” “Paradise City,” “Welcome to the Jungle,” and more.

In commemoration of the band’s 30th anniversary, the Guns N’ Roses slot was released in 2015 by NetEnt. The behemoth developer has tons of slot hits and is able to go from creating a Safari themed masterpiece like the Serengeti Kings slot demo to doing justice to a legendary band like GNR. There’s a lineup of the band’s most popular songs which play throughout the game. Players get 5 reels, 3 rows, and 20 paylines with lots of in-game features and a 96.98% RTP. Climax with the Encore free spins and stand a chance to win up to 2000x your stake on a single spin. Considering the cult following the band has gained over the years, this was a much-anticipated release, and it certainly lived up to expectation.

Motorhead

This English heavy metal band had one of the best music careers spanning 40 years from 1975 to 2015. Their famous song, Aces of Spades, was centred on Lemmy Kilmister’s lifestyle as an avid gambler. Being a band frontman, Lemmy is not only an icon in the British rock music scene, but he and the band are also believed to have paved the way for the new wave of heavy metal in the UK. They left behind a legacy comprising 22 studio albums, 12 compilation albums, 10 live recordings, and 5 EPs.

NetEnt launched the Motorhead slot in 2016, shortly after the band disbanded, and it came as a living legacy to honour Lemmy Kilmister, who had just passed away. 

  • We get a game set on a performing stage with 5 reels and 76 paylines. 
  • The graphics is stellar. It portrays Lemmy as the main character and the Ace of Spades symbol as the wild. 
  • With a 96.98% RTP, random base game features and lots of free spins allowing a max win of a whopping 11,400x your bet. 
  • The soundtrack includes hits such as “Overkill,” “Iron Fist,” and “Killed by Death.

Jimi Hendrix

Hendrix was not a rock band, but a one-person wonder. His mainstream career lasted only four years, but his legacy lives on 50 years after his death. Jimi captivated the hearts and minds of rock enthusiasts with his electrifying guitar playing skills, which were unmatched and are still so to this day. His music is a mix of rock and jazz, blues and R&B. His greatest hits include “Voodoo Child,” “Foxy Lady,” and “Purple Haze.”

Jimi’s personality shines through in this 96.90% RTP NetEnt slot with symbols like flowers, peace signs, hearts, and records on the reels. Jimi himself appears on the screen to award players with top wins. The fantastic guitar solos throughout the gameplay are the highlights of this slot for die-hard fans. But an array of unique features and free spins also promise hefty payouts on a lucky spin. It’s no easy feat living up to a legend of this calibre, but NetEnt sure made a commendable attempt in this 5-reel slot game.

Megadeth

This American thrash metal band is arguably the most controversial ever to exist. Still, they have garnered fame not just among the underground metal scene but mainstream success. The band was formed by guitarist Dave Mustaine in 1983 and is one of the trailblazers of thrash metal rock music. They have dozens of Grammy nominations under their belt as well as several platinum-selling albums such as “Countdown to Extinction” and “Rust in Peace.”

Honouring the living legends, Leander Games developed a Megadeth slot in 2012. It is set on 5 reels and 3 rows with 40 paylines and is playable at up to $480 per spin. The slot displays heavy metal imagery at its finest with lots of guitars, drums, amps, and picks. Band members Dave Mustaine, David Ellefson, Shaun Drover, and Chris Broderick each make an appearance and offer some pretty impressive wins. Rock out to Megadeth’s best tunes and benefit from the Head Crusher bonus feature, as well as tons of free spins and cash prizes.

Twisted Sister

They may not have been your model music band, but Twisted Sister sure knew how to make some energetic rock and roll sounds. Their music videos were particularly prominent for featuring acts of somewhat exaggerated humour. Dee Snider and his fellow bandmates reached international fame with unforgettable tracks like “Stay Hungry” and “I Wanna Rock.” Despite the highs and lows throughout their career, they remain one of the most memorable heavy metal rock bands to have ever existed.

The main soundtracks of the Twisted Sister slot by Play‘n GO are “We’re Not Gonna Take It” and “I Wanna Rock.” The game is set on a 6×6 grid and features the cluster pay mechanism. Lots of randomly triggered features are present in this slot, and players can win as much as 4200x their stake. A 96.2% RTP and medium volatility will assure frequent winning combinations and thrilling experience on the reels.

Conclusion

It’s safe to say you’ve left your mark on the world if you have a slot game named after you. Players love slots that tell a story with exciting elements, and what could be better than a rock band theme to do just that. Spin those reels for a dose of nostalgia with the best guitar riffs and metal vocals of the 20th century.
