Coming this September, a Motörhead slot machine in loving rock and roll memory of Lemmy Kilmister.
He was known for his love of gambling, especially at the Rainbow on the Sunset Strip where he spent a little too much time playing this poker video game. So much so, that there’s a rumour has it that he played the game in his home in his final days.
The company behind the game is NetEnt, they’ve done a Jimi Hendrix slot machine and a GNR one too.
Ace of Spades will of course, be part of the game’s soundtrack which you’ll be able to play online.
A little more about the game from onlinecasino.org:
The third and final installment of the NetEnt Rocks trilogy has been announced: Motörhead. Due in September 2016, this upcoming slot machine will feature the legendary band’s music, and 3D depictions of the band members.
A slot machine licensed to use the band’s image may strike some as distasteful after Lemmy Kilmister’s recent death, but we believe this is a fitting tribute to him, oddly. It’s known that Lemmy was a big enthusiast of slot machines, so having one made after his band, of which he was the heart and soul, strikes us as appropriate. I’m certain that Lemmy himself would approve of it.
Net Entertainment is a true legend in the online casino industry. They have been providing software for online casinos since 1996, the year of their foundation. NetEnt is widely known as one of the best game developers out there, so everytime they announce a new title, the iGaming community pays close attention and usually swells with anticipation. The NetEnt Rocks series is a tribute to the legends of rock (or, at least, to the legends whose licensing rights can be procured).
There are three titles in the series: Guns N’ Roses (released in Jan ’16, NetEnt’s most successful release to date), Jimi Hendrix (release is due April), and Motörhead. I, personally, applaud the decision to use rock bands as themes, since the tired tropes of leprechauns and animals can get a bit boring. As expensive as they may be (due to the procurement of licensing rights), branded slot machines tend to be much more appealing than fairies or bunnies, in my humble opinion.
The majority of slot machines have the same general control layout (spin button, auto play button, bet adjusters, etc.), and games of the same series or developer tend to have the exact same layout. There is practically no reason for us to presume that Net Entertainment will give Motörhead a user interface unlike that of Guns N’ Roses, or introduce major changes from the traditional UI elements in slot machines.
