Gods of Rock slot REVIEW
Gods of Rock ReviewGods of Rock is perhaps inspired by the Righteous Brothers 1974 hit song ‘Rock and Roll Heaven’, where the chorus goes like this: “If you believe in forever / Then life is just a one-night stand / If there's a rock and roll heaven / Well you know they've got a hell of a band”. Either way, Thunderkick has come up with a highly unique, untamed and epic rock release where head-banging deities like Thor, Anubis, Medusa, Athena and Lucifer himself take center stage.
We’ve seen plenty of hard-hitting rock slots in recent years, but we have a feeling this one will stand the test of time. You don’t need to be a fan of any particular band to enjoy it, and it comes with a gradually building crescendo of features that can explode into very solid payouts in all stages of the game. Overall, this is one of the best releases ever from the creative Swedes, at least if you’re into this kind of music.
Gods of Rock! Slot - Reels Screen
Gods of Rock! Slot Features
You’ll find 2 types of wilds in this game, and both are hands displaying ‘the sign of the Horns’ you’ll typically see a lot of in a rock concert audience. The regular wild simply steps in for all regular pay symbols, while the other is a Charged Wild that comes with special abilities we’ll take a closer look at below.
The Dropping Symbols mechanic removes all winning symbols from the grid, and new and/or existing symbols will then cascade down to fill the gaps. This feature goes on as long as you keep winning, and it can thus lead to indefinite extra wins from a single paid spin.
The Charged Wild will increase the reel multiplier by +1 wherever it lands, and each reel multiplier can go as high as x11. All payouts involving a reel with a multiplier are boosted, and if more than one multiplier reel is involved the respective values are multiplied with each other. All reel multipliers are reset between each dropping symbols sequence.
The Charged Wild explodes after it has boosted the reel multiplier, and this removes all adjacent symbols. The wild then turns into a regular wild as it tumbles down to fill the lowest possible empty position. The exploding symbols are collected in the Bonus Meters on either side of the grid, and you need to explode 30 symbols to trigger the Wild Encore feature.
The Wild Encore feature adds 1 to 3 Charged Wilds in random positions at the end of the Dropping Symbols sequence. This triggers more explosions to keep the tumbling process going, and you need to collect 30 exploding symbols in the same spin sequence to trigger the feature. The meter resets between paid spins, in other words.
You trigger the Gods of Rock Bonus Round when you collect 55+ exploding symbols in a single tumbling sequence. This awards 8 free spins for starters, and reel multipliers are carried over from the base game. The Reel Multipliers do not reset between spin sequences like in the base game however, and filling the equally non-resetting Bonus Meter adds +3 extra spins to your tally.
The 200 Spins Gods of Rock! Slot Experience
We had a great time testing this highly original Thunderkick release, and as is usually the case, we’ve whipped together a jam-packed highlights video for you. You get to see pretty much everything this game has to offer in the span of a few minutes, and it will probably give you an appetite for plenty more.
Playing Gods of Rock literally feels like you’ve died and gone to ‘rock ‘n roll heaven’, and you know they got ‘one hell of a band’. The rag-tag collection of rocked-out deities works a charm, with Thor on drums, Medusa on guitar and Lucifer himself as the lead singer. Illuminati themselves could hardly have come up with a more seductive and hardcore ensemble, and the math model and features are even more hard-hitting than the audiovisual presentation.
Just like a proper live performance, the features conspire to build up to intense and highly satisfying climactic moments. Charged wilds build reel multipliers, while exploding symbols to fill the bonus meter that might get you more charged wilds and/or the bonus round. The 20,000x win cap is ‘rock solid’ too, and Thunderkick has created an epicly fun rock slot that sticks out from most installments in the genre.
If you love Gods of Rock! Slot you should also try:
Guns N' Roses - is NetEnt’s rocked out masterpiece that’s still going strong like the band itself. You can hardly get closer to a real concert in the world of online slots, and you can choose between 5 famous hit songs from the band. The math model is a lot weaker than the game at hand though, but this is a great alternative for casual players.
Rock the Reels Megaways - is spun around a somewhat similar concept, although the deities are replaced by animal rockers in this volatile Iron Dog release. You can look forward to 4 different random modifiers both in the base game and during the bonus round, and you can win up to 50,000x your stake.
Hammerfall - is a heavy hitter in Play’n Go’s ongoing metal range, and it’s a branded effort based on the Swedish power metal band. It all plays out on a 7x7 cluster pays grid, and you’ll shift between 3 unique song worlds. You’ll charge a meter to trigger modifiers, and this can lead to payouts up to 30,000x your stake.
