While branded pokies have been around for quite some time, this market has been dominated by television shows, movies and comic books. Now, we are seeing a more diverse range of branded pokies, as music-themed slots are now very popular among online casino players. They bring something new to branded pokie design with innovative gameplay features and killer soundtracks. Click here to read more.
One thing that you can always count on from a music-themed pokie is that it will always have a great soundtrack. Games developers work closely with production companies to ensure that they can include popular music from the artist on which the pokie is based. Games like Guns n Roses feature a selection of hit songs from the band that players can listen to as they spin the reels.
Even if the developer cannot obtain the rights to the artist’s songs, you can still expect the game to feature great music. For example, Megadeth doesn’t feature any of the band’s actual songs; however, the background music features heavy glam rock that is still very reminiscent of Megadeth’s trademark sound.
High Energy Gameplay
When creating musician and band themed online pokies, developers tend to go for more exciting, high-energy gameplay. So, when you spin the reels on games like Guns n Roses or Jimi Hendrix, you’ll experience high volatility and frequent wins. Many of these games also come equipped with several different bonus features that can be triggered often for an engaging and immersive experience.
Unbranded Music Pokies
Not only musician and band themed pokies are based on actual artists. In fact, many of the most popular music pokies out there just feature general themes. Here are some of the best performing unbranded pokies in these genre:
- Disco Spins: a 20-payline pokie with cute disco-dancing characters. The game doesn’t have a free spins round by the Dance Floor Wilds base game feature offers up high volatility for generous winning potential.
- DJ Wild: this 20-payline pokie features an electronic music theme with expanding wild re-spins and built-in betting strategies
- The Jazz Club: a 25-payline pokie that offers up to 14 free spins in the bonus round and a $5000 top prize
- Rock Star Riches: a 25-payline pokie that offers players up to 30 free spins in the bonus round and a $2500 top prize
Net Ent Rocks
Musician and band-themed pokies are now so popular that games developers are creating entire series on them. One of the first companies to do so is Net Entertainment, which recently launched its Net Ent Rocks series. The debut game was Guns n Roses, which was met with praise from pokie fans around the world. It was followed by Jimi Hendrix, and the third and final game in the series will be based on Motorhead. It is hoped that other developers will follow suit, as it would be great to see more pokie series that focus on various genres of music.
