Intro: Game Theme
Guns N’ Roses video slot is part of the NetEnt Rocks series of games which are themed on some of the greatest rock performers of all time. Alongside Jimi Hendrix and Motorhead slots, Guns N’ Roses rocks out with spectacular graphics, excellent music score, breath-taking animations and tons of lucrative features. In case you aren’t familiar with the Californian hard rock band, they formed in 1985 and shook the music world with their debut album, Appetite for Destruction.
The peak of the band’s popularity lasted several years around the late 80s and the early 90s, after which the group went through lineup changes and sporadic activity. GNR are still active today, rocking and rolling around the world, but they are unlikely to repeat their global fame from the early years when the band’s hedonism and rebelliousness earned them the nickname “the most dangerous band in the world.” NetEnt celebrates GNR legacy in their Guns N’ Roses slot, making every spin memorable, as if you were attending one of the bands’ legendary shows.

How it Works
The slot features 5 reels and 3 lines, offering 20 paying lines. As you load the game, you realise that the concert is about to begin and the crowd is cheering for the headliners to come to the stage and perform their well-known hits like “Welcome to the Jungle”, “Paradise City” and “Sweet Child o’ Mine”. Huge speakers can be seen on the side of the reels, ready to blast that sweet guitar sound, but before you immerse yourself in the atmosphere make sure to set the bet level using the selector from 1 to 10. You can also adjust the coin value, activate automatic spins and maximise the stakes with the Max Bet button. Notice the Set List option in the lower right corner – you get to choose the songs that play as you spin the reels.
Let’s check out the paytable. The standard assortment of playing card symbols is presented using the recognisable GNR typeface and decorated with roses. There are five theme-related symbols – two guitar picks with the band’s album covers printed on them, Duff McKagan, Slash and Axl Rose. It is the vocalist who brings the largest payout, 750x the stake for 5 matching icons on a payline. The band’s logo with two pistols and two roses is the Wild symbol, while a vinyl record takes the role of a Bonus. Some symbols may transform into Stacked Wilds, but more on that in a moment.
The Guns N’ Roses slot is one of NetEnt’s most elaborate products when it comes to special features. The regular Wild can appear on any reel, except for the third one, and substitute all symbols except for other Wilds and Bonus icons. It can expand and cover an entire column.
At least three Bonus symbols appearing on reels 1, 3 and 5 award one of the three bonus features – Encore Free Spins, Crowd Pleaser Bonus or coin wins. The record starts turning and you need to stop the Bonus Wheel to determine which feature will be awarded. The Crowd Pleaser Bonus is a picking game with 3 levels. You get to pick various symbols, from direct cash prizes to free spins icons and +1 pick icons. You get 3 picks in the first level and you must collect a certain number of coins to advance to the next level. In the third one, you may double the prize you’ve won.
The Encore Free Spins feature awards 10 freebies with a guaranteed stacked Wild on each spin. One of the band members will act as a Wild on each of the gratis spins. Stacked Wilds can appear on all reels but the first one and the fifth one. The feature cannot be retriggered. The Appetite for destruction is a special “Overlay Wild” in the shape of a cross and can appear randomly.
The Legend Spins feature is also randomly activated. The player receives one spin with a Stacked Wild. Two more re-spins are then played with two Stacked Wilds. The band members will assume their legendary stances and increase the winning potential massively. This, however, is not all. You can also benefit from Solo Multipliers. They occur randomly and award a multiplier from 4x to 10x the stake, but they only activate if a win is achieved with at least three matching symbols.
To fully appreciate the spectacle that is Guns N’ Roses slot, you don’t need to be the fan of the band. If you don’t like their songs you can simply mute the setlist and enjoy the mindboggling features. But, we can see rock fans going crazy about this game, and for good reason. The audio and visual execution is superb. There isn’t a dull moment with this slot, regardless of which device you’re playing it on. Higher-than-average RTP makes it all the more attractive.
