Rock Music Themed Online Casino Slot

September 07, 2010

Rock music is a popular universal phenomenon. It unites people all over the world just as online casinos do. Some online gaming software providers have developed slot games based on this theme. This article reviews two of the best slot games of this genre.

The first slot game Rock On! from Rival gaming is an audio visual delight. The reels are set in the background of a stage with amplifiers and strobes in full display. The symbols on the reels include an assortment of rock artists at their weirdest. Then there are guitars, a drum set and the rock on symbol and the peace symbol. Elvis also graces the reels as the bonus symbol. The crafting of the symbols is bold and bright and sets the tone for a raucous concert. But it is the background music that is truly electrifying. The strumming of guitar strings, the drum beats and the clash of cymbals can all be heard as the reels come to rest. To add effect each reel is independently set aflame as it spins. The Green Guitar expands to fill the entire reel when able to complete a winning line and in doing so it doubles payouts. The Drum Set offers five free spins at up to 10 times the payouts when three or more appear scattered on the screen. But it is the Elvis bonus symbol that is most valuable because it triggers the bonus round. Rock On! is an i-slot from Rival Gaming. The bonus round is therefore a thematic interactive one that is the soul of the slot game.

The second slot game is themed entirely on Elvis, who was the original rock star. The slot game is Elvis Multi Strike from WagerWorks. Though it is not as visually rich as Rock On! it makes up with a host of special features. Elvis fans will find plenty of stuff to their liking. The reels are set alongside some of the most popular Elvis photographs. The symbols also have some interesting Elvis paraphernalia, especially the bonus symbols. Elvis Multi Strike has 60 paylines but they are divided over three sets of reels of 20 each. The first set of reels spins first. If there is a payout then the second set of reels automatically spins and pays out double. If there is a payout then the last set of reels spins and offers quadrupled payouts. The catch is that the player has to wager upfront for all 60 paylines. If a combination of three Photo or Wild symbols bearing the Elvis image appears scattered on the reels then the player gets a free ride to the next set of reels.

Elvis Multi Strike has some amazing bonus features. In the Rockin’ Respin feature if two Photo Memories symbols land on the first two reels of any level, the Rockin’ Respin feature starts. Those reels lock in as do any other reels with Wild Rockin’ Respin symbols. The remaining reels are spun again. The Photo Memories bonus is triggered by two Photo Memories symbols and three Wild Bonus symbols. Once triggered pressing the Spin button will start an arrow spinning on a record surrounded by a collection of Elvis photos. The arrow will stop and award a Photo Value, which is based on the total bet on the reel level that triggered the bonus.

Rock On! can be played at Rival Gaming online casinos like Ruby Royal and Sloto’ Cash and Elvis Multi Strike can be played at WagerWorks online casinos like Virgin Casino.
