We suspect that NetEnt’s latest Rock Slot was already in the offing before Motorhead’s legendary frontman Ian “Lemmy” Kilminster passed away at the back end of 2015. The sad news has lent a certain poignancy to the game’s intro, which opens with Lemmy’s gravelly proclamation, ‘Good Evening, we are Motorhead, and we play Rock n’ Roll’ before giving way to a rollicking live version of the Ace of Spades. The song itself is the perfect reference point for any aspiring gamer and rocker given its subject matter. We’re pretty sure that helped inform NetEnt’s decision to make Lemmy and the boys the subject of the third and final slot in this hugely successful little trilogy. We present you the Motorhead slot.

Motorhead Slot RTP
The Motorhead slot operates an orthodox pay plan so three or more matching symbols on consecutive reels from left to right will win you a prize. You can bet up to a whopping €200 on a single spin if you use the highest coin value (1.00) and the largest bet level (10). The game has a 96.91% RTP and the mystery reels will help you build up your cash pot steadily. It’s the free spins round that is most likely to please jackpot hunters as that’s where you have the best chance of pulling up a big win.
Motorhead Slot Features
As is the case with Jimi Hendrix and Guns N’ Roses, the soundtrack sits at the heart of Motorhead’s appeal, but NetEnt’s design team have gone to great lengths to ensure that it isn’t the only selling point. Just like its two bedfellows, it is packed full of exciting features. It also boasts an unusual reel layout to reflect the outlandish reputation of the band that inspired the game. Four key features help you take advantage of 76 paylines and win some cash.
Motorhead Slot Substituting Wilds
Look out for the golden Ace of Spade’s wild symbols because they buddy up with adjacent symbols to create winning lines. Wilds can substitute for everything other than scatters, and with 76 paylines available, they can elevate a single spin into a serious moneymaker.
Motorhead Slot Free Spins Round
The golden scatter symbols are inspired by the motif that appeared on the arm of Lemmy’s omnipresent leather jacket. If you land three or more, you win entry to the Motorhead free spins round, during which you can start accumulating some prize money. You get ten free spins in total, and other features can still crop up to give you an even greater chance of winning a significant sum.
Motorhead Slot Mystery Reels Feature
Every time you spin, one entire reel turns into a stack of mystery symbols. Once the spin is complete, they then transform into a stack of identical symbols, which can combine with adjacent reels to make multiple winning lines. Don’t expect a win every time (to an extent, this feature sounds more exciting than it is) but if the reels align for you, it can undoubtedly give you a massive helping hand. The mystery reels can turn into a stack of any matching symbols, except for scatters.
Motorhead Slot Bomber Feature
Inspired by another of the band’s best-loved songs, the Bomber Feature has randomly activated ahead of any individual spin. The design team have certainly given it a spectacular introduction. When it activates, the reels turn dark aside from flashing spotlights and a siren sounds. Several symbols then turn into golden ‘mystery’ Motorhead bombs, which explode once the other reels settle. The explosion reveals a cluster of matching symbols that usually spell big wins.
Motorhead Slot Review
We’ve found it difficult to weigh up NetEnt’s three rock slots against each other. One thing’s for certain; they have gone out of their way to create three casino games that each honour the legacy of a musical icon, yet stand alone as enjoyable, feature-heavy slots. Fans of Motorhead’s music will lap this up, but fans of great gaming will love the overall playability of the slot. The mystery reels feature a little gimmicky for our liking but the Bomber Feature and Free Spins round makes up for that. If I were pushed, I’d probably pick Guns N’ Roses as my favourite of this trilogy, but you know what, perhaps it is best to stop comparing the three. Each stands alone as an excellent game and a worthy addition to the impressive NetEnt catalogue. We’re confident you’ll enjoy this game, whatever your musical persuasion.
