NetEnt Rocks Tour a 2016 Smash HitTia Winter | 10 October 2016
Swedish casino developer Net Entertainment is renowned for releasing one or two major pokies games per year, complete with impressive publicity and advertising campaigns. Early in February last year, the developer announced a new concept that would shortly be under way. This announcement was for the first game in the NetEnt Rocks Tour pokies collection, a mobile optimised pokie based on legendary rock band Guns n Roses.
Shortly after the announcement, NetEnt postponed their release date for the Guns n Roses pokies game indefinitely. The game debuted in January this year, followed by news from the developer of their planned Rock Year. Plans to develop two pokies based on Jimi Hendrix and Motörhead were soon underway, completing the trio of games in NetEnt Rocks Tour pokies collection.
Chart Topping Pokies Success
So far, the collection of slots have proven to be a massive success among online and mobile pokies players. Rock fans have enjoyed the pokies’ music-themed graphics and characters, while players in general may stand to benefit from a variety of bonus features.
The Guns n Roses mobile pokies have received some of the warmest reviews from NetEnt players, and are considered to be the favourite game out of the collection for many. Guns n Roses offer a substantial 7 different bonus features, along with 5 reels and 20 adjustable paylines. Of course, classic album art rock graphics have been included as symbols, along with a substantial maximum payout of up to 1,125x players’ stakes on a single spin.
A Trio that’s Rocked
Soon after the Guns n Roses pokies were released this year, the Jimi Hendrix Touch pokies followed in April. Based on a groovy 60’s era of love theme, the second Rock Tour pokie offers stylised graphics, including the guitar-master Hendrix himself. The game also offers a selection of 6 bonus features, just one less than the first game in NetEnt’s 2016 collection.
Motörhead was the last pokies game to be added to the Rock Tour trio, and has also proved popular with mobile players at NetEnt casinos across the globe. With a customisable soundtrack that players can turn on and off at their leisure, Motörhead features stacked mystery symbols that form lucrative clusters in the Bomber Bonus feature. 76 paylines and rock-themed graphics have also cemented the final Rock Tour pokie as a definite success in the eyes of many mobile casino fans.
