Motörhead is a 5 reel, 76 payline slot from Net Entertainment that can be played from 20p to £200 per spin across desktop, mobile and tablet devices. The game is based on the rock and roll band which has achieved legendary status. Join Ian Fraser ‘Lemmy’ Kilmister and the boys in another instalment in the NetEnt’s Rocks series. With over 30 million albums sold worldwide, the slot celebrates a career that spanned 40 years.
Graphically, it’s set on a live music stage with speakers and amplifiers surrounding the reels – what I like is that you can activate ‘rock mode’ which turns up the Motörhead music loud whilst you spin the reels. Look out for the Ace of Spades wild symbol as they substitute for all symbols except the scatter. When it comes to features, there are 3 in total.
You have the Mystery Reel feature – on every spin in the base game and Free Spins feature (described below), 1 or more reels will be Mystery Reels. They consist of a stacked reel of mystery symbols. Once the reels stop spinning, and if they are mystery symbols present, the mystery symbols transfer into 1 randomly chosen symbol (except the scatter) for bigger wins.
Then you have the Free Spins feature which is played when 3 scatter symbols appear anywhere on reels 3, 4 and 5 in the base game – this will reward you with 10 free spins. During the feature, the Mystery Reels can contain both Mystery symbols and wilds for bigger wins. The only downside to the feature is that you cannot retrigger additional free spins. However, if the 1 randomly chosen symbol is a wild, prepare yourself for huge wins.
Finally, there’s a Bomber feature which is randomly triggered in the base game before a spin takes place – a number of bombs occur on the reels creating a minimum of 10 overlay mystery symbols. Up to 5 bombs will appear with up to 15 overlay mystery symbols up for grabs as each bomb carries a cluster of mystery symbols. The reels then spin with the mystery overlay symbols in place with a symbol randomly chosen as in the Mystery Reel feature.
I found Motörhead to be a medium variance game with the bigger wins coming in the Free Spins feature – this is due to the potential of the wild becoming the mystery symbol. There’s up to 570 times your stake to be won on every single spin which can happen in any of the 3 features and base game. I also recommend you play the other slots in the NetEnt Rocks series – Jimi Hendrix and Guns N’ Roses.
