Game setup for the Guns N Roses Slot
Given the sheer quantity of features and effects that NetEnt crammed into the Guns N Roses slot we are quite glad they didn’t stray too far away from the norm with the overall structure. Although, for a low variance slot we are a little surprised they didn’t go with a 243 ways to win structure. Instead, the Guns N Roses slot has 20 fixed pay lines in play on the stock 5-reel layout, with 3 rows of icons in play. Bet range too is surprisingly wide for an entertainment based game. Whilst a min bet of 0.20 credits keeps the game accessible for most players, we can’t fathom the huge 200.00 credit maximum. We guess there could be a high roller or two amongst the fan base who will play the game for purely sentimental reasons but, this isn’t a high enough volatility game to keep most serious players interested in the longer term.
In line with the low variance and high hit ratio on the slot, the return to player percentage or RTP is a staggering 96.98%. It isn’t quite the level of the notoriously casino unfriendly Blood Suckers slot but, it’s high enough that a lot of online casinos might be reticent to give too many free spins away on this game or allow it full wagering contribution over time. Right now, though, even casinos with easy wagering requirements like Casumo are allowing players to gain full betting contribution on the Guns N Roses game.
Gameplay and Theme for the Guns N Roses Slot
When you open this game, you are blown away immediately by how well produced it is. The intro sequence alone is a thing of beauty, we challenge you not to close the game and restart just to watch it over! It should be said, due to the smaller screen layout and high graphics requirements of this game, it does lose some sparkle on mobile play. Also, those with older devices or weak internet connections might find themselves reducing the graphics quality so their machines can cope. Not something you have to do with your everyday slot game! We won’t dwell on the theme too much as, if we need to explain who Guns N Roses are, you probably wouldn’t be reading a review of the game in the first place. Needless to say, the slot is packed full of Easter egg references to Guns N Roses long history
as perhaps the most famous rock band of all time.
Whilst the theme might draw you to this slot, be in no doubt, it is the gameplay which will keep you coming back to it time and time again. The action comes thick and fast with expanding and fixed wilds, several bespoke free spins features and even an instant win credit bonus. Fortunately, the pay-table describes each in detail. Honestly, though, we prefer to just let them spin in randomly and surprise us with their rewards.
High Action, Low Payouts
You can’t make a game which has a high hit ratio, low volatility and cram it with bonus features without sacrificing something and here is the Achilles heel of the Guns N Roses slot. Whilst the game may trigger various features
in a seemingly endless loop, the chances that you will hit a big win are not good. 20-30x the stake seems to be considered a good result for the features on this slot and we’ve only ever seen more than that in the ‘’Encore Free Spins’’. Unsurprisingly that also seems to be the hardest bonus to actually trigger. Now, that doesn’t mean to say there aren’t big wins hidden here – there’s a max win of 225000 coins stated for a reason. However, the gap between it hitting is probably going to be as far off as the last time Guns N Roses had a number one hit.
It’s lack of appeal as a real money slot for more serious gamblers likely won’t stop this becoming a NetEnt classic for the casual player. It might not have the big wins that craps players
or blackjack players
desire to draw them away from table games but, we don’t think that was NetEnt’s target audience. The Guns N Roses slot is aimed at a broad but quite specific player base and it fills the needs well. It has bags of entertainment value, brilliant visuals and audio, tonnes of features and, for the occasional lucky player, a max win big enough to call a jackpot.
