Thankfully, this Online Slots 101 series is here to help. We’ve taken a look at some of the most popular online slots in NJ for you and boiled it down toa set of simple instructions for how to play and win.
It might not help you win a jackpot, but it’ll show you how, and figuring that out is very often half the battle.
The series continues here with the Guns N’ Roses online slot, available at the following NJ gambling websites:
Welcome to the jungle
The Guns N’ Roses online slot is a high-end 5-reel and 20-payline online video slot.
It is very much a tribute to the legendary hard rock band Guns N’ Roses. As such, the slot’s symbols are all based on Guns N’ Roses band members, imagery, and artwork.
That means Axl Rose, Slash, and Duff McKagan are well represented. Plus, other symbols include Guns N’ Roses guitar picks and various GNR logos and art are there as well. Even the traditional slot playing card symbols feature a Guns N’ Roses twist.
The GNR-inspired graphics will certainly please fans of the band. The reels themselves are set on a GNR stage and there’s a crowd watching that roars with every win. Spinning these reels is like being at a Guns N’ Roses show, only you’re in it.
That feeling is enhanced by the all-Guns N’ Roses classics soundtrack. A soundtrack that is interactive as well, giving players the choice of hearing one or all five of the band’s most popular tracks, including:
- Welcome to the jungle
- Sweet Child o’ mine
- Paradise city
- November rain
- Chinese democracy
Having five reels means Guns N’ Roses features five-columns filled with Guns N’ Roses-themed symbols. The 20 paylines refer to the fact there are 20 different ways these symbols can line up to produce big wins.
Click on the game’s Information Tab (i) to view more about the top paying symbols, bonuses, and the pattern of all 20 paylines.
Starting the game
You start the Guns N’ Roses online slot by first selecting the Bet Level from 1 to 10, or 20 to 200. Then you choose the Coin Value from one cent to one dollar.
You can also hit the Max Bet button to bet the maximum bet level and coin value. Then just hit the blue and white Spin button. You’ll find that smack in the middle of the bottom half of the screen.
There’s also an Autoplay button allowing you to select a specific number of spins to go through. Of course, you can stop the autoplay feature at any time.
The highest paying symbols
Like most traditional online slots, Guns N’ Roses is about lining up three or more of the same high-paying symbols on any one of the 20 lines.
The game’s highest paying symbols are those featuring Guns N’ Roses band members Axl Rose, Slash, and Duff McKagan.
In the meantime, Guns N’ Roses logo symbols are wild and substitute for all others except bonus symbols. In fact, when a Guns N’ Roses logo falls on a reel, it turns the entire reel wild. That gives you the chance for a big win.
When three bonus symbols appear on reels 1, 3 and 5 Guns N’ Roses randomly transports players to one of three bonuses.
The bonuses include:
- Crowd Pleaser: Crowd Pleaser is a Pick and Click bonus game offering free spins and increased payouts.
- Encore Free Spins: Encore Free Spins offers players 10 free spins with a Guns N’ Roses band member appearing as a stacked wild on every spin.
- Coin Win: Coin Win offers an immediate payout.
Players can also trigger a number of Guns N’ Roses features randomly, including:
- Legend Spins: Players can trigger the Legend Spins feature when three Guns N’ Roses band member symbols turn up on the reels. A third reel spins awarding multipliers every time the band member symbol appears again.
- Appetite for Destruction Wilds: Players can trigger the Appetite for Destruction Wilds feature when the Appetite for Destruction symbol appears. It creates a scattered wild effect.
- Solo Multiplier: Solo Multiplier is triggered randomly awarding a multiplier.
- Expanding Wilds: The Guns N’ Roses Logo is wild and it turns the entire reel it lands on wild.
