Slot machines are a fun way to get away from life for a while. Maybe you’re playing online or maybe you’re heading off to Vegas to play in person. Either way, they are a good source of fun and entertainment. While they can easily take your money, you can also win big, if you play your quarters just right, especially on entertainment-branded machines. TV shows such as Golden Girls, Baywatch and Rick and Morty‘s Wubba Lubba Dub Dub have been turned into slots.
Music artists aren’t any different. Guns N Roses, Kiss, Blake Shelton, Jimi Hendrix, Motörhead, Elvis and many others have all lent their likeness to slot machines. I’ve even played a few that are just as entertaining as they are appealing. While some may claim slots are luck, others may claim strategy is the key to winning.
Over the half a dozen times I’ve been to Las Vegas within the past year, I always find myself sitting down to the Blake Shelton slot machine. Shelton’s likeness is plastered all over the four connected machines, including the seat featuring the If I’m Honest album cover. The “$10,000” jackpot is very appealing, but fans can also win a variety of Shelton prizes, including an autographed guitar. However, as one can imagine, this isn’t easy to accomplish. A variety of bonuses and a built-in jukebox containing many of Shelton’s 28 No. 1 singles are sure to keep gamblers engaged in hopes they can win big with the country star.
Guns N Roses
Fans of Guns N Roses will have to take the online route to win with their favorite rockers. The Guns N’ Roses online slot includes fun features, superior graphics and even lets players choose what song to listen to as they rake in big wins. Featuring the Appetite for Destruction Wild, Encore Free Spins and Crowd-Pleaser Bonus Game, this is one gaming experience that will have you dreaming of your own Paradise City.
Jimi Hendrix fans can get psychedelic with the guitar legend as they play online to win big prizes. The slot has five reels with 20 paylines and six bonus features with re-spins and wild transformations. The game is based on the iconic musician and features some of his most popular songs, including “Purple Haze” and “Voodoo Child.” The return to player rate is much higher than other slots with most wins stemming from the game’s three free spins feature.
Music-themed slots based on specific bands or singers have become a powerful marketing tool. Music affects brain chemicals like dopamine and oxytocin, giving a wide range of emotion. At no point will the music interrupt or disrupt the game, but only enhance the player’s mood to get lost in the moment.
