NetEnt marks the end of the rock slot trilogy with the release of Motorhead. First came Guns N’ Roses slot. A couple of months following the 1st rock release came Jimi Hendrix. Both of these slots brought innovations, new bonus and game features. Motorhead is a legendary rock band and they deserve a slot based on their work, featuring their songs and performance cutouts. Make sure you don’t miss the intro. It will for sure bring back some good old memories.

Motorhead slot is a 5 reel video slot with a distinctive symbol grid. That said, the first two reel show 3 rows of symbols, the 3rd and the 4th come with 4 rows of symbols whereas the last one has 5 rows. This out of the ordinary layout opens tons of win possibilities. There isn’t anything changed as far as the betting settings go. The coin size is still in the range of 0.01 and 1.00 and players can place as many as 10 coins per line. Speaking of lines, there are 76 pay lines in play at all times. Players cannot adjust how many lines are activated. This rather uncommon number of pay lines is due to the weird symbol grid.
The top prize is 150x the bet amount. The RTP averages around 96.98%. Players can enjoy Motorhead slot with an entry bet of 0.20 and those who want to kick it up a notch can set the bet at 200 per one single spin.
From a visual and audio standpoint of view Motorhead slot is absolutely amazing. NetEnt could’ve shown more of Motorhead’s performances, like cutouts when a bonus feature is triggered, like they did in the Guns N’ Roses slot. All symbol designs are inspired by the band itself. For example, the Wild Symbol is represented by the Ace of Spades. The appearance of Scatter Symbol is based on the Motorhead logo. Ace of Spades substitutes for any other symbol except the Scatter, whereas if you land 3, 4 or 5 Scatter symbols you will be granted 10 Free Spins. Scatters can appear only on reel 3, 4 and 5.
NetEnt brought two new bonus features to the table with the release of Motorhead slot. One of them is called Mystery Reel Feature. During every spin, one or more reels can be a Mystery Reel. Once all reels are stopped the Mystery Reels are revealed turning into one random symbol, including Wilds, but excluding Scatters. Speaking from our own first hand experience, this feature does come up rather often.
The 2nd feature that looks eye-catching is the Bomber Feature. The audio, the video during this bonus segment is outstanding, like nothing you’ve seen before. At least 10 overlay symbols appear on the reels, and all of them are turned into the same random symbol. The key part we should note is that these symbols come in clusters. If you’re lucky enough, this feature can bring you some mega wins!
As we mentioned earlier, if you land 3, 4 or 5 Scatter Symbols on reels 3, 4 or 5 you will be given 10 Free Spins. Note, the hit rate of this bonus feature tends to be on the low end.
To top it off, in the bottom right corner of the interface you’ll find a button that says Rock Mode. If it’s on you can hear one of the 4 songs played by Motorhead in the background. You can hear “Ace of Spades”, “Iron Fist”, “Killed by Death” and “Overkill”, Motorhead’s greatest hits without any doubt!
In our personal opinion Motorhead is an electrifying video slot with attractive bonus features, unique layout, one of a kind themed design and audio that’s simply immaculate. But, there’s a but. The Free Spins bonus feature hits rather rare, which has an adverse effect on the player’s experience and the player’s returns. On the other hand, the Bomber and Mystery Reel feature certainly make up for this. In fact, the hit rate of these two is so high you basically won’t see a spin without any of these. With Motorhead the Rock Slot Trio is complete!
