As I’ve said before, the big traditional casino slot game providers need to keep an eye on European slot game developer NetEnt. It’s a known fact that they have long term designs on being present on the casino floor beside the older firms after many years of dominating online slot gaming with titles like the Starburst slot being some of the most played slots online ever released. Their mobile ‘touch’ casino and live casino brands also enjoy a lot of success.
To head into a land casino environment requires a few adjustments, one of these is being able to produce the really big branded games. Not many come bigger than the iconic 80’s rock band Guns N Roses, this is the first in a trilogy of games called NetEnt Rocks, which also includes the Jimi Hendrix slot and Motorhead slot games. I’m not entirely sure why NetEnt did this now as they have their 3D sound technology due for release later in the year and this would have been the perfect way to promote it, however, these are still some excellent branded games.
It’s typical for a licensed slot to be low variance and high RTP, they are usually geared towards long enjoyable play sessions with frequent hit ratios but overall smaller pay-outs, though an overall jackpot still exists. Guns N Roses manages all this and more, the RTP is unbelievably high – nearly 97%, this is a far cry from slots like the Kiss rock band slot which offers players much less. The biggest win possible is a mammoth 225000 credits, fixed rather than progressive, so every now and then someone is going to have the win of a lifetime.
Big wins will be few and far between though as this game is all about pure entertainment, with no less than six different features on offer to ensure that both the base game play and feature action is both constant and rewarding. The audio is, fairly obviously spectacular and you get to choose a song from the band to listen to as you play, the video sequences are pretty amazing too and the kind of thing you associate more with the big IGT land casino machines.
One interesting thing on this game is that the mobile version lacks a number of the audio and video additions that the desktop game gets, I can only guess this is to ensure the game runs seamlessly on mobile devices but it does mean the game lends itself much more to desktop play whether that is for real money or just for entertainment value. On that note, there are few slot games out there which can match this slot for pure entertainment value and it bodes well for future land based casino ventures from this developer.
