New Motörhead Pokies Game to Be Released in SeptemberTia Winter | 15 August 2016
NetEnt’s newest addition to its Rock Tour pokies game series, themed on the popular band Motörhead, is to be rolled out on the 22nd of September 2016. It has been hotly anticipated by fans, and the developer has released some preview footage of the 5-reel, 76-payline video pokies game.
Reels That Rock
Motörhead will be available for online and mobile play, allowing players to enjoy the action on smartphone or tablet too. The game seems to have been designed to appeal to hardcore Motörhead fans and general pokies enthusiasts. Its backdrop is a stage complete with amps, guitars and speakers, and there is a Rock Mode that cranks up the volume of Ace of Spades and the other Motörhead singles that make up the soundtrack. On the other hand, the icons on the reels are inspired by traditional machines and include 7s, clovers, bells, cherries and lucky horseshoes.
The Top Jackpot in the base game is 570x the total stake, and the theoretical RTP of the game is an impressive 96.86%. The betting range for the game will start at 0.2 and go all the way to 200 per spin, and there are several special features which should make spinning the reels more rewarding and more exciting for players.
Win Big with Lemmy Online
The online and mobile versions of the Motörhead pokies game feature Wild and Scatter Symbols, with the Wild fittingly taking the form of the Ace of Spades. It can replace any icon except the Scatter to create winning combinations, and the Mystery Wild Feature will boost winning possibilities even more. When this is activated the whole of one reel will fill with any of the symbols that are currently on the screen with the exception of the Scatter.
The Bomber Feature has a similar effect, but is quite a lot more dramatic to witness when it happens. Bombs explode on the reels and destroy the icons that they are near, which are then replaced with new ones to create even more payout opportunities.
The Scatter Symbol triggers a Bonus Round of 10 Free Spins whenever it is seen anywhere on Reels 3, 4 and 5, and the Mystery Wild can actually be the Wild itself during these Bonus Spins which will make winning big even easier. The high-octane excitement of this game seems a fitting tribute to Lemmy, the late Motörhead frontman and only constant in the band, and a man who coincidentally had a real love for casino games.
