Motörhead is a 5 reel online slots game from NetEnt, themed after the legendary band and originally released in 2016, prior to the sad death of iconic frontman Lemmy.
As with other NetEnt slots featuring well known musicians, the music is one of the main draws in Motörhead, and fans will delight in the exhilarating experience of blasting Ace of Spades as they play.
Look and Feel
Motörhead features an appropriately dark design, heavy on black and grey colors, with the game’s play window framed by stage lighting, stacks of amps bearing the band’s name, and a guitar.
The reel design is staggered, with three-row, four-row and five-row reels running left to right, and the symbols on the reels feature a blend of classic art design and meaningful Motörhead-related symbols.
Seven standard symbols will appear on the reels: a gold star, a silver bell, a red Lucky Seven, a horseshoe, a pair of cherries, a four leaf clover, and an icon showing Lemmy himself.
There is also a Motörhead logo scatter symbol, and a gold Ace of Spades logo to stand as the wild, which can substitute for all symbols in the game except the scatter symbol.
Bets in Motörhead are controlled through the “Level” and “Coin Value” selectors. There are autoplay and max bet options available, with the possibility of stopping autoplay spins early if required, and that glorious hard rock soundtrack can be turned off if the player desires, leaving just simple reel spinning sound effects.
There are a number of bonus features in Motörhead, most of which actually form part of the base game, making this slots game quite a fresh experience.
Together with the staggered reel design, there is also a stacked “Mystery Reel” which can act to transform any mystery symbols showing into any other game symbol (except the scatter), thus potentially boosting wins.
The main game features a randomized “Bomber Feature” which may happen before any spin. A number of bombs will explode across the reels, creating ten or more mystery symbols, which will then transform into other symbols, just as they would when appearing on the mystery reel.
Motörhead also offers a free spins mode activated by landing three or more scatter symbols anywhere on reels three, four, and five. Ten free spins will be awarded, and the “Mystery Reel” will contain wild symbols as well as stacked mystery symbols.
All in all, Motörhead is an engaging and innovative slots game that will appeal strongly to fans of the band, and those who enjoy music-based slots in general.
