Welcome to the Jungle! We do have fun and games. We also have a fairly limited appetite for heavy metal, so our GnR puns will stop shortly after we’ve referenced Paradise City and Sweet Child of Mine, and, for that, at least you should be grateful.
You should check out Guns ‘n’ Roses. They made some of the best popular heavy rock music of their time, and did it with a determined commitment to keep the clichés of the rock-star lifestyle alive and kicking! But do they need an online video slot?
Apparently so! Or so says NetEnt, who are behind the Guns n Roses slot game that shows a decent amount of effort has been put into to keeping the spirit of the band alive in this game that’s also an entertaining slot in its own right. NetEnt are one of the biggest game companies in the online casino scene and have a proven track record for delivering games that are always safe and legal to play and can deliver big wins.
But should you charge into the mosh pit and start banging your head to this game, with its big playlist and lots of bonus games?
Let’s see more in this Guns n Roses slot review.
The number that first hits you when checking out the stats for Guns n Roses slot is 96.98% for the theoretical return to the player. That’s very generous. It’s important to remember that this is a long term measure of the game’s performance, and it’s only a matter of decimal places, but nonetheless, this is at the top of the current range. The game is rated as having medium volatility, which means it should award prizes fairly regularly. (None of these things are promises, and a game’s performance must remain entirely random for it to be legal.)
You can win as much as 225,000 coins, a very big jackpot, from bets between 0.01 coins and 1 coin. (Please makes sure that you check prize and bet levels at the site you are playing at.)
The game is a trad five-reel set up, with three rows of symbols, across which run 20 pay-lines.
This Guns n Roses slot machine looks great. The reels are square and sit in front of a backdrop of a huge outdoor stage and a swaying festival crowd.
The usual sound controls include a set-list of GnR songs. This already puts this game above the crowd in our view. Sadly, there are only five songs on the list, so long playing sessions might need some backup music from your MP3 player.
The controls are at the bottom of the screen. At the left is the information button to open the paytable, then the Bet window showing your total bet. That is controlled with a 10 number bet-level window to the right of it, and a coin value setting meter to the right of the play buttons. They sit front and centre, with the auto-play settings to the left and the maximum bet button (which set the bet to £20 on our demo-version session) to the right. Finally, at bottom right is the balance window.
You can control the game – sound, settings, help, and autoplay – in the game frame too.
All as easy as an E power chord!
The paytable opens with cards – decorated with roses – with 10s paying five, 20, and 50-times stake for three, four, and five symbols. Jacks pay three, 25, and 60-times stake. Queens pay five, 25, and 75-times stake. Kings pay 10, 30, and 100-times stake. Aces pay 10, 40, and 125 times stake.
The high payers open with two guitar picks: a blue one pays 15, 50, and 150-times stakes. The Lies album cover pays 15, 75, and 200-times stake. Then the band members. Duff pays 20, 100, and 300-times stake. Slash pays 25, 125, and 500-times stake. Axl Rose pays 30, 150, and 750 times stake.
There is also a set of three wilds and a bonus scatter.
Which lead us to:
You don’t need to like rock, metal, of this particular band to enjoy this nicely designed and beautifully delivered game. The generous RTP should be enough to get any player – whatever their musical taste – interested in spinning these steel wheels and looking for some big games.
It’s quite a complex game – which is not to everyone’s tastes, and seems to be going a little out of fashion in the mobile-first age – but that variety of bonus games and extras gives a real variety and depth to the gameplay.
The designers have really done their best to honour the legacy of one of the great bands, and their tunes make one of the best game soundtracks we’ve ever heard. Throw those very big wins into the mix, and a big betting range and you can see that this game can appeal to newcomers and high-rollers equally.
Looking and sounding great, and with everything you’d expect from a NetEnt game, Guns n Roses should be at the top of your playlist at your favourite online casino site now.
