Get ready for an encounter with the legendary Lemmy Kilmister on the slot from NetEnt. Motörhead is the third creation in NetEnt’s trilogy of Rock slots, paying homage to the iconic rock star and his band. A random Bomber feature, Mystery Reels and a free spins round will deliver a heavy metal slotting experience that can lead to wins of up to 570 times your bet on every spin.
Motörhead is a video slot with five reels in a 3-3-4-4-5 format with 76 fixed pay lines. Wins are paid for three to five matching symbols on a line from left to right only. Get on stage for a headbanging session on desktop or mobile from 0.20 to 200 credits per spin. The medium variance game comes with an RTP of 96.98%.
“That was a great time, the summer of ’71 – I can’t remember it, but I’ll never forget it!” (Lemmy Kilmister, 2009)
The legacy of the legendary rock music idol lives on to this day, thus creating a slot that deserves to carry the name of the iconic band was surely no easy feat for the design team at the Swedish studio. After all, there is rarely any other personality that epitomizes rock and roll more than Lemmy with the wild and dark Motörhead. Incorporating the concert stage where he was at his best seems like the most natural thing to do. The sinister-looking dark background with amplifiers, speakers, instruments and flashing spotlights complements perfectly the equally dark reel set that shakes violently every time one of the features triggers.
Switching on the optional “Rock Mode” and turning the volume to the max will complete an authentic Motörhead experience as you will have some of the most famous tracks blaring from the speakers. That is nothing short of an “Ace of Spades”!
All pay symbols except scatters appear stacked at all times, starting with horseshoes, four-leave clovers and cherries at the low end. Lining up five across the reels will pay 0.6x your bet or 45.6x your bet for a full screen. They are followed by 7s, bells and stars at the high end, awarding 1.5x to 2.5x your stake for a single five of a kind. Lemmy himself is the top symbol, paying 7.5x bet when five land on a line.
The wild could be nothing else than an “Ace of Spades” symbol, reminding us of one of their most successful songs while the Motörhead band logo with the famous skull acts as the scatter and a bronze coloured skull as the mystery symbol.
Motörhead Slot Features
Prepare for a loud, dark and mysterious slotting session as NetEnt incorporated some stunning features that will keep you headbanging throughout the gameplay. There is an explosive Bomber feature that triggers randomly on any spin in the base game as well as a Mystery Reel feature and a free spins round.
The most common feature you will come across is the Mystery Reel as it is active in the base game and free spins. On any spin except when the Bomber feature is triggered you will have one or more reels turn into Mystery Reels with super-stacked mystery symbols. All landing in view will unveil a common pay symbol, except the wild symbol, once the reels have stopped. Having all five reels covered with mystery symbols will pay 570x your bet should they reveal the top-paying symbol, which is at the same time the maximum win in a single spin.
Contrary to the Mystery Reel, the Bomber feature can trigger randomly on any spin in the base game only. Violently flashing lights and shaking reels will announce the feature while the screen is going dark before up to five cluster bombs hit the reels. They will turn 10 to 15 random positions into mystery symbols. A common symbol is revealed after the reels stop, significantly increasing the potential to hit a sizeable win. There are no scatters on the reels when the Bomber feature is triggered.
Landing scatters anywhere on reels three, four and five will award 10 free spins which cannot be retriggered. During the feature, the Mystery Reels can contain wild symbols, providing extra potential to score a win.
Completing the NetEnt trilogy of Rock slots, it was thought that Motörhead would be the wildest and most volatile of them all. While the design, graphics and animations are worthy of the wild rock legend, the win potential for a single spin of just 570x bet is rather tame. Not sure Lemmy would approve of that. But at least we can turn on the “Rock Mode” to satisfy our need for some headbanging while seeing the reels spin.
