Gods of Rock: Slot Overview

Have you ever seen footage of Stooges frontman Iggy Pop walking above a cheering crowd at the Cincinnati Pop Festival in 1970? If not, the singer is literally standing upright, held aloft on the hands of his fans, at one point rubbing peanut butter over his torso before throwing it over the crowd, all the while soaking up adoration. It's practically the definition of 'rock god'. Developer Thunderkick takes the idea of a rock god to its extreme by forming a band of powerful entities from various cultures. It then throws them up on stage accompanied by wilds, Charged Wilds, exploding symbols, and multipliers, in an aural assault titled Gods of Rock.

It's not just your ears that get blasted in Gods of Rock. The game is visually exciting too and is held in an open-topped stadium beneath a night sky, where the gig takes place on a 6-reel, 4-row game grid. To the sides are hordes of festival-goers waving their hands in the air while glowing mouthed snakes rise above them, adding a sort of Viking touch to the concert. Unusual, that is until you cast your eyes to the game grid and take in the characters making up the high paying symbols. Thunderkick do like the esoteric side of life, but they don't often put their gods or beings so literally centre stage as this.

Gods of Rock

Playable from 10 p/c to $/€100 per spin, the game provides 466 connecting pay ways, which form a winning combination when matching symbols sit adjacently in the same row or diagonally in one row above or below each other. As befitting the theme, Gods of Rock is highly volatile while producing a theoretical return value of 96.05% in the default setting, though this could be possibly lower depending on the market, so be on the lookout.

The paytable is a real mix of familiar faces from various beliefs. Well, the high pays are, which from low to high star Medusa, Anubis, Athena, Thor, and Lucifer – worth 1.4 to 5 times the stake for six of a kind. It might seem like an odd choice, but if you've seen season five of the Lucifer tv series, you'll know it's rife with musical numbers. Rounding off the paytable are a bunch of low pay 9-A card symbols. There are 2 wilds in the game. Both substitute any pay symbol to complete a win and display what Thunderkick calls 'The Horns' hand gesture on them. One wild is totally regular, doing nothing but substitute pay symbols; the other is a Charged Wild possessing special powers as you will see.

Gods of Rock: Slot Features

Like a consummate live performer, Gods of Rock's features work together to build intensity – when it all goes to plan. First of all is the Dropping Symbols mechanic, which removes winning connecting ways wins allowing new or remaining symbols to tumble into the gaps. Dropping Symbols will continue to function until no new wins appear.

Now for the Charged Wild. Whenever one lands, it increases the Reel Multiplier beneath it by +1 up to a maximum of x11. Wins are multiplied by all applicable Reel Multipliers, and if more than one is included, then the multipliers' values multiply each other, so a 3x, 3x, plus a 3x would create 27x. Reel Multipliers reset between each paid spin.

Once the Charged Wild has increased the Reel Multiplier, it explodes to remove all surrounding symbols. It then drops as far down the reel as possible before turning into a regular wild. New symbols tumble into the empty positions created by the explosion. The number of symbols destroyed by a Charged Wild explosion is collected in the Bonus Meters sitting next to the reels. Exploding 30 symbols triggers the Wild Encore feature, which places 1-3 Charged Wilds onto the grid when the current Dropping Symbols sequence ends. This detonates more symbols to keep the process going. The Bonus Meter resets between paid spins.

If you manage to collect 55 exploding symbols in a sequence, then 8 free Gods of Rock Free Spins are awarded. Any Reel Multipliers are carried over from the base game, and they do not reset between free spins. The Bonus Meter only resets when it is filled, and +3 additional free spins are awarded when this occurs.

Gods of Rock: Slot Verdict

Rock' n roll slots aren’t uncommon, Play'n GO do a roaring trade in them, working with some of the hardest-hitting names in the industry, yet there aren't many like this. Thunderkick has taken a different approach, and you certainly don't see images of Anubis playing a keytar, Thor banging away on drums, or Medusa wailing on her guitar much, if ever. The result is pretty darn rocking in many ways, and if you use a bit of imagination, it all fits in with Thunderkick's mythological/spiritual leanings.

If anything, the features are even hotter than the graphics that overlay them. The key to everything is the Charged Wild which comes across as a very distant relation to Nolimit City's xBomb feature since it blows up symbols and increases the game's multiplying capabilities. On a positive note, Reel Multipliers multiply each other, which is usually a fiery mix, and technically, total multipliers can be enormous if you do a bit of theorising on a calculator. Gods of Rock is one of those games that, once it gets a good shove, can escalate all over the place. To keep a lid on exposure, Thunderkick has placed a win cap on the game, so if you manage to hit 20,000x the bet, the current game will come to a halt.

Gods of Rock serves up a unique blend of gameplay, theme, irreverent attitude, and a dose of humour. Add in impressive winning possibilities when the band is running hot, and you've got a game to entertain a range of players, whether musos, mystics, or mythology buffs, plus many in between.

Great

Gods of Rock mixes a great blend of eccentric themes and potent features which build in intensity like a good live performance.
