Rocking Reels – Slots for fans of Heavy Music are Booming in Popularity

There was a time when slots were all about pulling a lever, spinning in a set of lemons or cherries and waiting for the coins to drop. But since the age-old machines went online, they have changed a lot from those early days. Developers quickly realised that in the internet age anything was possible, and the themes have become richly diverse at online casinos. Games based on films and TV shows have been popular for a while, but now musical themed slots are taking the gambling world by storm. Slots based on rock bands, in particular, are gaining large followings.

One of the leading software developers in the online casino market, NetEnt, has had a lot of success with its range of rock music slot machine games which can be played at various gambling sites online. The series is called NetEnt Rocks, and it began with the Guns n Roses slot. This is still one of the most-played games on the market, and it would certainly appeal to fans of the Most Dangerous Band in the World. This is because the game features some of the best-known songs the band has ever recorded, including Welcome to the Jungle and Paradise City. These songs play while the player spins the reels, and there is also a bonus feature which includes an insane solo from Slash as the reels keep spinning in wins. Guns n Roses are renowned for being one for the most electric and exhilarating bands on the planet, and the slot machine reflects that image nicely.  

Perhaps the reason why Guns n Roses is the most popular rock slot on the market is down to the fact that the band fronted by Axl Rose has made a comeback in recent years. They dissolved soon after the release of “The Spaghetti Incident?” in 1993, and it seemed as though they would never be reunited. In 2016, however, they put their differences aside and Slash and Duff McKagan re-joined Axl to bring back most of the original line-up.

The other slots in NetEnt’s rock series are based on Jimi Hendrix and Motorhead. They both follow a similar model to the Guns n Roses game, where there are famous songs playing while the reels are spinning. Motorhead were well-known to be fans of gambling, and their most famous song Ace of Spades was obviously linked to one of the best cards to draw in blackjack. In the song, however, the late Lemmy confesses that he was more of a slot machine guy when it comes to gambling games. Therefore, it is quite appropriate that there should be a modern slot based on his band and music.

Due to the success of these slot games and the way they have given music fans another way to enjoy their favourite bands, there are likely to be many more slots based on musicians cropping up in the future. If you love these bands, check out the slots and give yourself a chance to win while listening to the music.
