Guns n Roses is a thrilling slots game based on one of the world's all-time biggest rock bands. From the developers at gaming giant NetEnt, it features some of Guns n Roses' most famous songs, stunning design, and a host of exciting special features. If you are not a fan of the band, you will enjoy this slot for its gameplay and design alone; if you are into the music, you will find it hard to top this slot for entertainment value.
Theme and Graphics
The excellent design is apparent from the second you launch the game. It features a fantastic intro video, which is far more detailed and absorbing than most other slots out there. You are shown a video montage of Guns n Roses design elements - the famous logo, for example - along with clips from some of the band's best-known videos and live performances.
Once you have got past the stunning intro segment, you will be taken to the main game screen. The game's background is a huge Guns n Roses stadium gig, complete with floodlights, a huge stage and speakers, and a swaying crowd of fans. There are five reels, with three active symbols on each reel. The game is extremely slick and well designed, giving it a very professional feel. It is easy to see why this particular firm has been so successful when its games have such a high level of attention to detail. This slot has a really fresh and modern feel.
Guns n Roses simply has one of the greatest soundtracks of any slots game ever. Rather than generic background music, this slot features some of the most famous rock songs of all time; even better, the songs you listen to can be changed at any time. You can create your very own playlist as you spin the reels. Very few games give you this much - if any - freedom when it comes to background music.
When you launch the game, the default song that will play is Welcome to the Jungle. Each song plays from the beginning, so you will be treated to the thundering intros to some of Guns n Roses best-loved songs. If you want to change the song that is playing at any time, you can use the setlist feature to do so, which can be found to the bottom left of the gaming screen. Clicking on the set list will expand the list and you can choose whichever song you like. The songs are:
- - Welcome to the Jungle
- - Sweet Child o' Mine
- - Paradise City
- - November Rain
- - Chinese Democracy
Simply select the song of your choice and it will begin playing. There is also a repeat feature - click on the repeat symbol and the same song will continue to play in a loop. If you leave the setlist as it is, the songs will play in order, keeping things interesting while you spin.
How to play
It couldn't be easier to play - simply hit the spin button! If you want to change your bet amount, you will have to do this first. You have two bet settings that you can change - the coin value and the bet level. Each value can be changed by using the arrows on either side of the display. The coin options are 0.01 to 1.00, with plenty of options in between. Once you are happy with your coin size, you can amend your bet level. The options are one to ten and the bet level goes up in increments of one, so you have a lot of flexibility.
The Guns n Roses slots game has a total of 20 paylines. You will always be paying all 20 paylines and you cannot choose which lines to play. This means the minimum bet - no matter whether you are playing for real cash or fun money - will always be 20 of your chosen coin. You can choose to bet additional coins across all paylines, or just stick with one. The paylines are the fairly standard lines you would expect to see on a wide range of slots. If you are new to slots games, or new to this particular slots game at least, you should take a look at the Winning Bet Lines pages in the game’s info section. You can reach the info section by clicking on the information button to the bottom left of the screen. The symbol for the information screen is a small ‘i’ on a blue button.
Guns n Roses has a number of special features, all of which will thrill you when they pop up! You will find expanding wilds, the Legend Spins feature, the Solo Multiplier and the Appetite for Destruction wild feature. As you can see, there are lots of fun features to look out for here! There are also free spins up for grabs - you can read more about these later on.
The game's wild symbol is the Guns n Roses logo. This can land on any of the five reels, except for the middle reel when the Appetite for Destruction feature is running. It replaces all other game symbols except for the scatter. When the wild lands on a reel, it expands to fill the whole reel, giving you plenty more chances to hit a winning combo. As the wild symbol expands, it can change for any other game symbols apart from the overlay wild symbol in the Legend Spins feature, the wild in Appetite for Destruction, and the Encore Free Spins stacked wild.
Appetite for Destruction
The Appetite for Destruction feature involves an overlay wild shaped like a cross. This is triggered at random and can be a full cross or just a partial cross. It will substitute all other game symbols except special symbols.
This feature is also triggered at random. When this is triggered, you will receive three free re-spins with special stacked wilds. You will have either one or two stacked wild reels. The stacked wild reel will move to different reels for each spin. For your first spin, you will have a stacked reel on the centre reel. For your second spin, the stacked wilds appear on reels one and five. For your third and final spin, the stacked wilds will appear on the second and fourth reels. As you can imagine, it is possible to hit some pretty big winning combos during this feature.
This special feature gives you a multiplier that is randomly determined. The multiplier, which can be anything from 4x to 10x, is triggered at random if there are three or more matching symbols on an active payline.
Multi Award Bonus Wheel
This is triggered when you land the bonus scatter symbol across reels one, three and five in any base game. There are three separate features within this feature, with one awarded to you randomly. The different versions of the feature are Encore Free Spins, Coin Wins, and the Crowd-Pleaser Bonus Game. You will soon pick your favourite out of these after a few experiences of each one and will be hoping it comes up whenever the bonus feature is triggered.
When you land three bonus symbols on reels one, three and five, the bonus feature will be triggered. You will see a huge bonus wheel appear in the form of a record on a record player. As the record spins, different bonus features will whizz past. Click the stop button when you are ready, and the record will gradually come to a halt. The bonus feature that stops under the pointer is the one you will be awarded.
Encore Free Spins
This is one of the special features triggered when you land three bonus symbols across reels one, three and five. You will be awarded 10 free spins and you will also have stacked wilds. The stacked wilds can appear on reels two, three and four on any of your 10 spins and you can even retrigger your free spins during an existing free session. Of course, this feature has great winning potential, especially if you are lucky enough to get extra free spins on top of your initial 10.
This feature is fairly self-explanatory but is a nice little cash boost if you are lucky enough to be awarded it. You will be awarded a random number of coins based on your initial bet amount. You can receive anything between 200 and 600 coins - the coin size will match the coin size you set before you started spinning.
Crowd-Pleaser Bonus Game
This is a classic slots game click and pick feature and has a total of three levels. You will be awarded a number of picks and can win up to 600 coins with each pick. When you are on level one, you will be given three clicks and will have to choose from eight items. Once you hit a total of 60 coins and have used all your picks, you will be taken to level two. When level two starts, you will receive three more picks. To move on from level two, you need to amass more coins. You will need to have won a total of 300 coins across levels one and two and have used all three level two picks to advance to level three.
What is the Guns n Roses return to player?
The official return to player provided by NetEnt is 96.98 per cent. This developer's slots have a reputation for providing generous return to player (RTP) rates and this is up there with the rest of its games. Guns n Roses tends to be a fairly reliable slots game and pays out smaller prizes pretty regularly. It is not especially known for its huge payouts, so it might not add enough excitement if you are used to playing jackpot slots. Having said that, it is a highly entertaining slots game and is genuinely enjoyable to play.
Most wins tend to be less than 20 times your stake, with bigger wins hitting 40 times your stake. There is certainly potential for some much larger wins, especially when the special features are triggered, but you might find these wins few and far between. It is worth the wait, however, when all the reels fall into the right places and you end up landing one of the higher paying combos combined with one of the special features, especially the multiplier. Remember that the Solo Multiplier feature can multiply any win by up to 10, giving you huge prize potential.
The biggest win you could hope for while playing this slots game is 1,125 times your total bet; for example, if you were playing at 20p a spin - the minimum bet at most online casinos available in the UK - you would win £225 if you were lucky enough to scoop the game’s top prize. While this is a hugely impressive sum for a 20p bet, it is not as much as you could land on many other slots for the same bet amount. Having said that, slots are designed for fun, and playing here at Slots Temple is all about playing for enjoyment rather than the chance of cash prizes!
