About Guns N’ Roses
NetEnt very well knows how to tug at the heartstrings of gamblers who have a thing for electrifying guitar riffs, spinning slot reels and big wins. Guns N’ Roses is yet another effort of the provider to charm players and keep the pot boiling.
Inspired by the namesake band, which is one of the world’s biggest, this slot rocks the best of their epic classics as its background score.
With its symbols, it celebrates the undying spirit of GNR, depicting its iconic vocalist Axl Rose and lead guitarist Slash. The graphics are a killer, too. At the backdrop is a massive stage of a rock concert with fans cheering below.
What plays as the background score is at your discretion. You can choose from classic GNR originals including Sweet Child O’ Mine, Welcome to the Jungle, November Rain, Paradise City and Chinese Democracy. All the tracks play in full.
The reels rock the low-value gold symbols A, K, Q, J and 10 laden with red roses. You must land at least three of a kind on a payline for a win.
Medium value symbols include two Plectrums laden with golden roses and depicting the band’s album covers – one from Use Your Illusion II and the other from the highly controversial G N’ R Lies. A minimum of three of a kind of these symbols is needed for a win.
Top value symbols include the legends themselves! Axl Rose is the most rewarding and demands 5 of its kind across a payline. It is followed by two other band members Duff McKagan and Slash.
The official GNR logo has been used as the Wild symbol. It can substitute for all symbols except the Vinyl Record Scatter symbol, 3 of which can trigger the features rounds.
Stakes start at €0.20 and end at €200, which tells me the slot is suitable for low rollers and high rollers alike. Winnings spins show up original video clips from GNR’s most successful live show and I think it is awesome.
The slot is compatible across all devices – mobiles, desktops and tablets. For more excitement, connect your device to good-quality speakers and crank up the volume. Let that soundtrack blaze away as you spin the reels.
Volatility and RTP
Guns N’ Roses slot carries an RTP of 96.98%, which is more than what most average slots offer. In theory, for every 100 you bet, you would get back 96.98.
Furthermore, the slot is of low to mid volatility, which is a bit of a disappointment given the brand’s unrivaled reputation. Expect winnings to be frequent, but of small values.
With the hit frequency being 28.49%, Guns N’ Roses slot should offer a win once in every 4 spins. The maximum you can win off this slot game is 1250x your stake.
Guns N’ Roses Features
As discussed earlier, Wilds in Guns N’ Roses are the band’s logo. These symbols substitute for all other paying symbols except the Scatter symbols, which are Vinyl Records in this game. Additionally, Expanding Wilds are part of the slot. They fill the entire reels, turning them into Wilds reels and increase your chances to win big.
- Legend Respins
Legend Respins in Guns N’ Roses slot are triggered randomly. They offer up to 3 re-spins and Stacked Wilds. The first re-spin lets Stacked Wilds appear on the third reel, the second re-spin on the first and fifth reel, and the third re-spin on the second and fourth reel.
- Solo Multiplier
Yet another randomly triggered feature in the base game, the Solo Multiplier is a win multiplier bonus that offers between 4x and 10x on your win. It appears on the fourth reel and gives your payout a much-desired leg up.
- Appetite for Destruction Wild
This overlay Wild is very special to NetEnt’s Guns N’ Roses slot. It takes cues from the band’s cover for its debut studio album of the same name. It is shaped like a cross and can randomly appear either fully or partially on any one of the three positions on the reels.
The Appetite for Destruction Wild substitutes for all other symbols in the slot, thus helping you bag a big win. If it combines with standard Wilds, a cluster of wilds would form for some hefty payouts.
The Vinyl Record bonus is the game’s Scatter symbol. When you land it on the first, thrid and fifth reel on the same spin, you unlock the Bonus Wheel feature. You must spin it to further unlock any one of three possible features (depending on where the pointer rests). These are as follows:
- Coin Win
Unlocking this simple feature fetches you cash prizes ranging from 10x to 30x your stake.
- Crowd Pleaser Bonus
If you land this bonus feature, you can choose your rewards from a range of options. The Crowd Pleaser Bonus runs in 3 rounds. Rewards include coin wins and free spins. Firstly, select 3 of the 8 symbols for cash bonuses, free spins and an additional symbol. Landing 60 or more coins will push you to the next level. Choose three free spins to activate the Encore Fre Spins bonus. If you manage to collect more than 800 coins in total, the amount doubles.
- Encore Free Spins
Landing this feature offers you 10 free spins. When the Encore Free Spins feature is activated, the image of one of the band members appears in the form of a Stacked Wild overlaid on the second, third or fourth reel. It can increase your payout substantially.
If you love playing music-themed slots, NetEnt’s Guns N’ Roses is definitely worth a spin. Everything about it is perfect: the design is extraordinary, the graphics stunning and the soundtrack superb.
Although the variance might disappoint some players, this slot packs a punch with its features and bonuses which are one of a kind. Overall, Guns N’ Roses captures the essence of rock with absolute panache and brings it right to your screen. Playing is believing!
