Although we’ve written this to accompany our unique BGO welcome bonus to celebrate Glastonbury 2017, the topic of music-themed online casino video slots has been brought to our attention before. Sure, there are plenty of casino games and titles that use awesome soundtracks to really add to the suspense, with developers employing the services of professional sound companies to do the job.
However, while there’s no doubt that there is an abundance of cracking original slot game soundtracks, we’re going to be casting our gaze over those which are inspired by actual, real-life musicians and artists.
We know there is plenty of entertainment based on blockbuster films, but we thought why not take a look at music too?
After all, what good are those quality risk-free no deposit free spins deals if there’s nothing good to use them on.
So, without any more delay, here are some of the best musical internet casino video slots based on actual artists.
Music and Slots – The Perfect Matches
Elvis – The Many Versions
Considering he’s one of the greatest entertainers of all time, with some hugely popular songs to boot, it can’t come as a surprise to you players that many online casino game designers have had a crack at Elvis Presley.
The King of Rock n Roll captured the imaginations of millions back in his heyday, but can he do so on the reels?
Elvis: A Little More Action by WagerWorks, Elvis Multi-Strike by IGT and Elvis the King by WMS Gaming have all been released to do just that, with plenty of symbols representing the man himself in action. With special features and Wilds galore, perhaps it’s time to check your online casino into the Heartbreak Hotel.
It’s been 8 years since the untimely death of Michael Jackson, so it’s quite a surprise to us here at Gambling Metropolis that Michael Jackson: King of Pop video slot was released only last year.
If Elvis was the King of Rock n Roll, then there can be no doubt about the King of Pop
Slot creator Bally managed to get their hands on the rights to MJ’s back catalogue, with plenty of his hits belted out alongside the spinning reels. Special rounds, such as the Smooth Criminal Bonus, only make the title more authentic as you play, with 25 paylines your reward for paying homage.
NetEnt Rocks – Guns N’ Roses, Jimi Hendrix & Motörhead
When NetEnt announced their Rocks Trilogy, we couldn’t wait to see the results. What could one of the most polished online gaming companies give to us when taking on the challenge of reproducing some of the greatest musicians to grace our world? The answer, an incredible series!
First came the award-winning Guns N’ Roses in January 2016, followed by Jimi Hendrix in April and Motörhead in September. As you’d expect, these slots come with ferocious playlists which really rock your socks off while spinning the reels. Even for NetEnt standards, it’s a truly fantastic concept.
No doubt the heaviest music-themed internet casino title is Megadeth, by Leander Games. Part of the heavy metal genre’s “big four” group, they’re the only one to release a dedicated slot to the online gaming world – and it’s gone down a storm.
This 5-reel, 4-row structure comes with symbols that are synonymous with the metal world – picks, drums, amps, Flying V guitars and those tasty bonus symbols, including the Wild Dave Mustaine. For any metal or rock lover, Megadeth slot by Leander Games is a must.
Quite a considerable jump in genre now, as we switch from the headbanging to The Queen of Country, Dolly Parton! Leander Games is, again, the architect behind it, with this slot likely to get your feet tapping rather than heads swinging.
You can even choose from Dolly’s most popular tracks for your pleasure!
Leander revert back to the classic 5×3 slot framework for Dolly Parton video slot, with the star of the show displayed as the lucrative Wild symbol. There’s multiple bonus features to get you in the mood too, such as Dolly’s Wheel of Wealth, Heartbreak Express bonus and Dolly’s Albums bonus.
Finally, we thought we’d leave it to KISS to shout it out loud for the last entry into our musical slots list, and it’s a mind-boggling affair due to a Colossal Reels setup. WMS are the brains behind it all, and we highly recommend playing it in demo mode before real money to get to grips with the mechanics.
The symbols that land are befitting of the band itself (especially Gene Simmons’ tongue)!
Rather than its counterparts, KISS only plays music when the reels are spinning, with plenty going on across whichever screen you’re playing with. Please visit our KISS video slot page for more information.
