Slot Machines Look To Heavy Metal For New Games
Slot games have taken inspiration from many different areas over the years, with music being a key influence. As there are so many different genres of music out there, this has led to a lot of slot games carrying a music related theme.
Heavy metal and rock themed slots quickly established themselves as some of the most exciting and enjoyable games around, with their popularity growing massively. Therefore, with that in mind, we’ve picked out a few of the best from this category.
Guns N’ Roses
Guns N’ Roses are by far and way one of the world’s most successful and renowned heavy metal/hard rock bands. The group, which features the likes of Axl Rose, Slash and Duff McKagan as members, hit the heights with tracks Sweet Child O’ Mine, November Rain and Paradise City. As well as enjoying huge success through their music, they’ve also had an impact in the slot game world too.
NetEnt were tasked with developing a GNR branded slot, and what a fantastic job they did. The 5-reel game features everything you could ever wish for, from authentic video footage and tracks, through to amazing artwork. It’s one of the finest slot games around, not just from the metal genre.
Kiss Shout It Out Loud
Kiss, like Guns N’ Roses, are world renowned for their music. You could also say that Kiss are well known for their look too, with their current line up featuring Paul Stanley, Gene Simmons, Tommy Thayer and Eric Singer. They’ve been pioneers in the heavy metal scene since ’73, and during that time they have taken their legendary status beyond music.
The Kiss Shout It Out Loud slot game was developed by leading developer WMS, and it’s very much one of a kind. It carries the Kiss theme brilliantly throughout, but its layout is somewhat innovative and exciting, with both a 5×4 set of reels and a 5×12 set as well. There’s huge winning potential through the colossal reels feature too.
Heavy Metal by Microgaming takes a step away from the heavy metal genre in a way, converting it into more of a heavy metal attitude, with the game also containing plenty of metal in terms of the deadly weapons involved. Microgaming, who are one of the finest slot game makers around, knit everything together with an old school flavor, and it works brilliantly. Proof of this has been the popularity of the game amongst RoyalVegas Casino players and most slot machine fans.
Players will be able to enjoy a comic book like look to the game, which always goes down very well with gamers, however, that shouldn’t lead anyone to believe that it isn’t a serious game. There are some big wins at stake in Heavy Metal, which always attract players, with the whole assassin like feel also adding to the excitement too. While old school slots have been done before, and probably look similar to Heavy Metal, the unique theme that Microgaming have gone with ensures it stands out from the crowd.
