Freddy Mercury was without a shadow of doubt one of the world’s most charismatic performers. He was definitely not one to follow the rules. From his four-octave vocal range to his flamboyant onstage antics to being voted one of the top 100 Britons (not a mean feat for a man born and raised in Zanzibar) nothing about Freddy Mercury could ever be called average.
Fast forward to 2018, 27 years after his untimely passing in 1991, and Freddy Mercury is once again rocking the charts and rocking the boat. However, this time it’s Rami Malek who has utterly transformed himself into Freddy Mercury for the silver screen, who is causing all the ruckus.
Bohemian Rhapsody, the film about the rise to fame of Freddy and talented ensemble ultimately known as Queen, was an instant box-office success raking in nearly $750 million worldwide. Malek’s portrayal and musical performances loved by both fans and critics alike (and even had the endorsement of the remaining members of Queen themselves).
Then it came time for the Golden Globe awards and in true Freddy style, things got turned upside down!
Bohemian Rhapsody is out and out a musical biographical film, however, rather than taking home the award for ‘Best Motion Picture – Musical’ it went on to claim the accolade for ‘Best Motion Picture – Drama’, a decision that stunned film critics and the attendees of the Golden Globes. It has continued to be a hotly debated topic in those circles.
Freddy would be so proud, once again he doing things his way and the critics be damned.
In honour of this great performer and his talented bandmates here are 4 music-themed slots which we believe are worthy of their own awards!
JIMI HENDRIX SLOT
No conversation about musical legends would be complete without the addition of Jimi Hendrix!
What Queen did for the UK music scene Jimi Hendrix did for the art of electrical guitaring. Where Queen developed a new sound and brought it to the Americas from Europe, Hendrix turned noise into art and brought it from America to Europe! He even performed live on Dutch television back in 1967, showing the world that music is a universal language, no one needed a translator to tell them they had witnessed greatness.
The Jimi Hendrix slot is a gorgeous 5 Reel, 20 payline online and mobile slot. The soundtrack is nothing other than Jimi’s own works with each ambient sound and design element transporting you back to those wild days of free love and rock n roll! Only now you can walk away with up to 80,000 coins on any given spin!
It also comes packed with bonus games which include Purple Haze (where the Purple Haze symbols acts as a Wild), the Red Guitar Re-Spin (trigger this feature to activate potentially unlimited re-spins) and the Pick and Click game which awards either coin wins or one of three different free spins games.
ELVIS: THE KING LIVES SLOT
There are history makers, then there are the legends, but there will only ever be one King of rock n roll! The man with the hips that drove the ladies wild, the man who made blue suede shoes fashionable, the one and only Elvis Presley!
The King lives on not only in his family and his music but in his very only slot, Elvis: The King Lives!
His slot machine is an amazing 11 Reels and 80 paylines with a 5000 coin jackpot up for grabs on every spin! With coin sizes varying from $0.40 up to $80.00 per spin, that jackpot can be extremely lucrative.
One of the best features of this slot comes in tandem with its free spins games. Before playing your free spins you get to access the Jukebox Feature where you get cash prizes and free spins depending on which song you land on. Landing on a song (either Hound Dog, Blue Suede Shoes, Hunk O’ Love or Teddy Bear) will load the original video footage for that song and play it for you.
MICHAEL JACKSON: KING OF POP
We have to pay our respects to one more artist whose life and music had a profound impact on not only the music industry but the world at large, Michael Jackson. While Freddy is our Queen and Elvis is the King of rock n’ roll there is only one King of Pop Music and Michael Joseph Jackson will forever hold that crown.
You’ll love spinning the reels on this 5 Reel, 20 Payline slot while Michael Jackson belts out some of his greatest hits! In addition to his soothing voice the reels themselves are filled with iconic Jackson symbols like a single white glove, him on tiptoes with white socks showing above black shoes, a close up of this eyes with a single curl and of course his portrait is the Bonus symbol.
The King of Pop slot has two intriguing free spins bonuses, namely the Beat It feature where you play with 10 free spins and frozen Wilds, and the Smooth Criminal feature with 5 free spins and 2 Wild reels (not just symbols, entire reels)! Both of these are available through the in-game Bonus Wheel.
A fan favourite, however, is the Double Wild Moonwalk feature which, while it offers fantastic returns, also has MJ doing his classic moonwalk across the reels just for you!
Finally, while Queen’s music might be a little lighter than what you experience in Betsoft’s hair rock slot there is no better description of Freddy than Rock Star! Rockstar is a 5 Reel 30 payline online slot powered by insane riffs and wailing guitar solos that will have you longing for the days when you had big hair and zero responsibilities.
Rockstar slot also comes loaded with two frenetic Bonus Features. The first is the Epic Solo Bonus Feature which sees Not-Slash perform an electrifying solo which lights up three symbols revealing random cash prizes.
The second is the Concert Ticket Bonus Feature. Landing three or more concert ticket symbols on the reels triggers a mini-game based on the Guitar Hero franchise where you need to use your pointer to click on “notes” as they pass through coloured markers on the neck of a virtual guitar.
Overall this is a fun slot with a fantastic soundtrack and you can choose to spin to win for as little as $0.02 per spin or rock out with a crazy $150 per spin! With an RTP of up to 97%, this is definitely on our Hit Parade!
