Schedule of Music Themed Slots Continues to Grow

The 10 Best Motorhead Songs of All Time

Over the last ten years, many of the most iconic names in rock have been immortalised by online slot machines. It’s an unusual extension of merchandising that continues to evolve as the casino industry builds.

With the scope for adding as many themed slots as the imagination allows, music is a perfect genre, and the list of options continues to grow.

The Headliners

Slot machines may seem like an unusual way of honouring our heroes, but, in many cases, it’s a perfect fit. The great Lemmy used to love a few spins of the reels, and his band, Motorhead, was one of the first to feature in an online slot game back in 2016.

Since then, Jimi Hendrix, Michael Jackson and Guns N’ Roses are among the artists to have a game named after them. Operators like to promote this type of slot as much as they can, and players can check the latest casino bonuses and offers that are attached to them. There’s plenty to choose from and the list is still growing.

Generic Recognition

While many music-themed slots tend to focus on specific artists, some of the newer releases have been more generic. Rock ‘n’ Slot is an example of the latter, with a nod to the birth of Rock ‘n’ Roll in the 1950s.

Its imagery honours the era with a jukebox, a pink Cadillac and headphones among the base game symbols. Rock ‘n’ Slot comes from the innovative producers at Red Tiger and it’s all set down on a 5×4 reel grid with 25 pay lines in place. For a slot game that tries to evoke those classic sights and sounds of 1950s America, it does a good job.

Another slot game with a similar feel is Rock the Reels. Produced by Iron Dog Studios using the trademarked Megaways system, this title first came online in 2021. This game has a more modern theme with graphics that have more affinity with the rock Gods of the present day.

Rock the Reels has a busy concert hall as a backdrop, along with a suitably heavy soundtrack. It attempts to adopt a second theme by using cartoon animals as the stars of the show. A lion and a flamingo are among the players, while the octopus, with its eight limbs, is perfectly equipped to be the band’s drummer.

Colourful Characters

The most famous cartoon music fans of all time have also received recognition from the online casino industry. The legends that are Beavis and Butt-Head have been the headline act in the slot of the same name that first came online in 2019.

It comes from the producers at Blueprint, and it starts with our two heroes in their favourite position, in front of the TV. Other classic characters from the show feature, while the musical soundtrack is punctuated by the trademark cackling of Beavis and Butt-Head themselves.

The list of music-based slots will undoubtedly grow in the years that follow, and these titles show that it’s not all about the artist.
