The hard rock pioneers get the NetEntertainment treatment with a rocking Motorhead slot that has an Ace of Spades up their sleeve.
The third game in the NetEnt Rock Tour slots, the set up of the five reels here is a little unusual, as the first two reels are 3 symbols high, reel three and four are 4 symbol high, and reel five is 5 symbol high.
Fans of the Dazzle Me slot will recognise the set up, with 76 paylines and stacked symbol to make it a little easier to create wins. Not easy mind you, easier.
But unlike that so-so game, this Motörhead online slot has a little more going for it, thank to one specific features that lights up the screen.
Set on a stage, the symbols are actually fairly generic NetEnt slot symbols, like clover leaves, stars, bells and horseshoes. The theme is a little dark, as you’d expect from a heavy metal band.
But the good news is you don’t have to be a fan of the music to enjoy it, as you can turn on or off ‘rock mode’ meaning you can enjoy the music – or not as it might be.
Either way, you’ll quickly enjoy the mystery reels, where one or more reels are filled with mystery symbols which then turns into one type of symbol.
Mystery symbols sounds just like a fancy way of revealing stacked symbols.
And whilst that’s true, you can still love the drama of it, rather than just get stacked symbols like you do the Game of Thrones slot, for example.
The real thrill is the Bomber feature, where sirens will sounds and ‘bombs’ of clusters of mystery symbols will land on the reels. These can spread over all five reels, and where we’ve gotten some fairly nice wins.
Nothing much more than 30 times our bet, but often enough that it made us forget that we hadn’t hit the game’s free spins in a while.
The only real difference with this feature is that the mystery symbols can now be wild, which granted can give you bigger wins, but not usually much more than you get in the base game anyway.
With a classic look, yet a hard rock edge with Lemmy shouting soundbites, and a cool dark stage setting… it’s not exactly hard core rock n roll, but it’s pleasing to the eye, and the wallet.
There’s enough here to please the fans, whilst those who aren’t into metal, will be happy to play a mobile slot machine with mystery features that brings a little extra thrill on each spin.

Wild: Is there a more iconic Motörhead song that the Ace of Spades? That's our wild symbol and replaces all other symbols on the reel except scatter.
Mystery Reel Feature: On every spin in the main game and free spins, any 1 or more reels (possibly all 5) will show up full of mystery symbols.
Once the reels have stopped, these reels will then become a stack of any one symbol (except scatter).
Scatter and Free Spins: Get 3 scatter symbols (marked with free spins on it) on reels 3, 4 and 5 to trigger 10 free spins.
During these free spins, the mystery reels and bomber feature can now contain wild symbols.
Bomber Feature: After any spin, the bomber feature can be randomly activated. You then get bombs, or clusters, of mystery symbols appear anywhere on the reels, generally covering at least 10 symbols over the 76 paylines of this Motorhead slot machine.
These then get turned into one symbol. The reason it's different from the mystery reels is because the clusters can cover several reels, and usually lead to at least a few decent 4 of a kind wins.
Whether or not you're a fan, the Motorhead slot on mobile will entice you in, thanks to a fairly generic rock n roll theme, and game play that keeps things lively, even if it's really just the mystery symbols that add a little drama on each spin.
The ability to turn the music tracks on or off no doubt helps make this game friendly to non hard metal fans, but if you're dead set against the band then we can only recommend something a little prettier.
Secrets of Atlantis slot for example? Personally, we'll be sweating it out on a grimy dance floor, eyes on the reels of one of the most iconic bands of the 70s and 80s.
