It used to be that the only way we could enjoy songs by our favourite musicians was to go out and buy their latest record, but that is no longer the case. These days, you will find all sorts of ways of listening to their music and re-living their legend online.
An interesting example of this comes with the current range of online slots games that feature some of history’s most famous rock stars. If you are a fan of any of the following musicians then you can try to win money while listening to some of their best-known songs at the same time.
Arguably the finest guitarist to ever live, Jimi Hendrix is well worthy of getting his own slots game named after him. The man born as Johnny Allen Hendrix gave the world some of the best rock songs ever performed, with classics such as Little Wing, Hey Joe, and Purple Haze still sounding as fresh today as they did in the 1960s.
The Jimi Hendrix game is part of the NetEnt Rocks series and it features images of Jimi as well as some suitably psychedelic symbols. As you would imagine, the background music features some terrific guitar playing from our hero, while the animations add some extra atmosphere to the game.
Guns N’ Roses
Once known as the most dangerous band in the world, Guns N’ Roses are back touring again with the majority of their classic line-up in place, including Axl Rose, Slash, and Duff McKagan. Their slot starts off with great video clips and then some of their classic riffs help to drive the action along.
You can check out the Guns and Roses slot at sites such as the Mr Green Casino, where they offer a welcome bonus and free spins to get you started. It has the added excitement of a roaring crowd rocking along to the band while you spin the reels, and there are five of the band’s tracks to choose from as you play.
Lemmy and the rest of the Motörhead gang kick off this slot in style with a video clip featuring their timeless Ace of Spades song. Once the game starts up you will see some classic images of the band and their unique style, although there is less music in this slot than in the others we have looked at so far.
You don’t have to be a huge fan of Motörhead to enjoy this game but if you enjoy their raucous version of rock n roll then you should get a lot of fun out of playing this slot while rocking out.
While the previous slots are all part of the NetEnt Rocks series of slots, this effort comes from WMS Gaming. Naturally, you get to listen to some of the group’s most famous songs while you spin the reels and look for a winning combination to pop up.
This is the online version of a popular land-based slot that you can now play from home. There are plenty of clips of the band playing as well as some interesting features that make a decent win more worthwhile.
