Rock is the most inspirational musical style for online slot machine developers, as is proven by Pandamonium, Tatoo Mania or Rock‘n‘Roller. With Rockstar, it is now Betsoft's turn to plug in electric guitars and throw on leather jackets. As for the soundtrack, you can rely on some banging tunes which honour the theme. So do the graphics, with their electric guitars, a whiskey bottle and some genuine rockers.
With 5 reels and 30 payment lines, Rockstar offers 2 multiplier Wild symbols. On top of this, it offers the possibility to take part in a bonus game. It also offers a special feature called Epic Solo.
At the start of each game, you can change the amount you bet. Different units are available: 0,02, 0,05, 0,10, 0,20 and 0,50 €/$/£. On top of that, you can bet up to 5 coins per line. The range of bets stretches from 0,02 €/$/£ to 75 €/$/£.
The 2 Wild symbols come with a multiplier and are symbolised by a gold and a platinum record. They can replace any other symbol in order to make you win. When they do, the amount you win is doubled with the gold record and multiplied by 5 with the platinum one. If you get both on a single line, yourr earnings are multiplied by 10.
As soon as you get 3 eelectric guitar symbols on a single activated payment line, you trigger the Epic Solo feature. In this feature, items are randomly selected and make you win money. Of course, the feature comes with an epic animated sequence in which a guitar hero who looks suspiciously like Slash from Guns N' Roses shows off his talent.
If you manage to get 3 concert tickets or more on a single activated payment line, you trigger a bonus game. It is heavily inspired by Guitar Hero, a famous video game in which you play a rockstar. Like in this game, you need to play in rhythm with the music by pushing a button when a note reaches the bottom of your screen. This bonus game demands some dexterity like in Babyboomers Cash Cruise and Alien Hunter.
All the ingredients are there to satisfy rock fans. The visuals play well into the theme and the soundtrack is great. On top of that, gamblers will no doubt appreciate the excellent bonus game and the 2 multiplier Wilds which ensure interesting pay-outs. Rockstar is an all-round success.
