|What’s Hot||What’s Not|
Back in 1980, Motörhead’s late front man Ian ‘Lemmy’ Kilmister screamed the lines “you know I'm born to lose, and gambling's for fools, but that's the way I like it baby, I don't wanna live forever” for the very first time on the now iconic song ‘Ace of Spades’. This line pretty much summed up his and the bands attitude to life, they lived fast and played even faster. The bands popularity increased form their humble beginnings and their repeated musical success plus stories of Rock and Roll excess made Motörhead one of the most famous bands of all time.
NetEnt are arguably one of the most famous of all online casino game developers and over the last few years have had their own string of number one hits in the form of some of the most talked about and highly rated online slot games. Most recently they designed the ‘NetEnt Rocks’ series, a series of dynamic online video slot games based on some of the worlds most famous musical icons. So far we have seen the releases of the utterly explosive Guns ‘N Roses online slot and then the more chilled out tones of the Jimi Hendrix video slot. NetEnt’s headliners at this particular show however are of course Motörhead, the loudest band in the world. Luckily for Motörhead fans this slot game features a very loud soundtrack, an unusual reel layout plus some really great bonus features courtesy of the team at Net Entertainment.
The game itself is a wash of dark heavy metal style colours and the backdrop is a stage littered with Motörhead branded amps and guitars. Fans will notice Lemmy’s iconic hat atop ‘Murder One’ which is his custom Marshall bass head and also his famous Rickenbacker bass guitar in the background too. It features bold animations and excellent special FX. The in-game symbols are designed to look metallic and fit the theme perfectly. Soundtrack wise all the classics songs are there; Ace of Spades, Iron Fist, Killed by Death and Overkill can be found by switching on ‘Rock Mode’ to access all of Motörhead’s greatest hits while playing.
The Motörhead video slot features 5 reels and 76 fixed paylines. Netent fans will also notice the strange reel layout is the same format as NetEnt’s Dazzle Me (3,3,4,4,5) and operates in much the same way as it does in this game. It has 10 different betting levels and also the ability to choose different coin values to suit your available bankroll. All the usual easy to use NetEnt UI features are present, so regular NetEnt players will find themselves in familiar territory while new players will find it easy enough to get started navigating around this game and controlling all its different features.
Bonuses and Rewards
The Motörhead video slot features many different bonus games and features. In the main game you can find wild symbols in the form of the ‘Ace of Spades’ icon.

The Motörhead logo is the scatter symbol in this game and if it appears anywhere on reels 3, 4 and 5 during the main part of the game you will activate the free spins bonus round which will award you with 10 free spins.
The two main features of this video slot are the ‘Mystery Reel Feature’ and the ‘Bomber Feature’. The Mystery Reel Feature is present during the main game and free spins bonus round. The Mystery Reel is a type of ‘stacked’ reel featuring both regular and mystery symbols. On every spin you make during the game, 1 or more of the reels will become Mystery Reels. Once the reels have finished spinning, all Mystery Symbols will transform into the same symbol at random.
The Bomber Feature is activated at random before spins during the main game. Bombs will go off on the reels, creating a cluster of 10+ mystery symbols. Once each bomb has created it’s cluster of symbols, the reels will spin and choose one symbol much in the same way as the Mystery Reels feature.
