Focus on Motorhead Slot
The third entry in the ‘NetEnt Rocks’ series, alongside titles dedicated to Jimi Hendrix and Guns ‘n Roses, Motorhead plays homage to the rock gods who frequently toured Canada with fully licensed audio and visuals, and the opening video will have you headbanging as you wait for the reels to load.
Each of the band members makes an appearance on screen and, as if to complete the heavy metal theme, the reels are set on a backdrop of a stage laden with guitars and amplifiers.
Betting Rules for Canadian Players
You might take one look at the reels of Motorhead and think ‘huh?’
Rather than the traditional set-up, you will see a gameboard that starts with three places on the left and increases in size to five on the right. It’s unusual, but you will soon get used to it.
Otherwise, the betting rules are fairly ordinary. You can select your bet amount using the coin value arrows, and there’s a whopping 76 paylines to work with.
Gameplay of Motorhead Slot
Despite the unique visuals of Motorhead, the gameplay is wholly traditional – you’re looking to match three or more of the same symbol from left to right on your reels.
There are two bonus rounds and special features to try and trigger, plus a randomly activated game – before you spin, a series of bombs can appear on your reels, and once the reels are turning these will explode to reveal mystery symbols that can reveal themselves as part of a winning combination.
Winning Symbols of Motorhead
You might have an idea of how the symbols in Motorhead might look, but you’d probably be wrong!
Rather than going for rock and roll inspired icons, NetEnt have instead opted for classic online slots imagery – cherries, bells, clovers, lucky number sevens and so on. It’s a traditional touch for a game that is anything but.
The highest paying main game symbol is Lemmy himself, Motorhead’s hirsute frontman. Match five of the bass-playing hellraiser on your reels to land the biggest prize available outside of the bonus rounds.
Bonus & Free Spins
There are two special features for players in Canada to sink their teeth into with Motorhead.
The first is the free spins game, which is triggered when the scatter symbol appears on reels three, four and five. You’ll be handed ten freebies to get you started, and these can be enhanced by the Mystery Reels feature so there are bigger wins available.
And yes, about that Mystery Reels round. As the name suggests, this is a whole reel of mystery symbols, which can reveal themselves as all manner of matching combinations. This game is triggered by the Ace of Spades wild symbol.
Our Motorhead Slot Tips
NetEnt have classed Motorhead as a low variance slot, and we’re inclined to agree with that – so patience should see you enjoy some winning spins.
As ever, only risk a tiny fraction of your overall bankroll with each spin of the reels, and remember that Motorhead – like all slots – is meant to be fun, so enjoy!
