Heavy Metal Themes in Online Casino Games
Most of us are used to seeing slots with Egyptian mythology themes, as well as an occasional Greek and Norse God here and there. Slots that are inspired by heavy metal music and bands haven’t been nearly as popular, but something has changed in recent years.
Exactly what has inspired game developers to use metal themes is still unknown but one thing is for sure: metal fans are finally able to enjoy amazing slot games featuring their favorite music. In this article we’ll cover some of those online casino games.
Founded in 1984 by Jeff Waters and John Bates, Annihilator are a world-known Canadian thrash metal band that had a great impact on the scene in the ’80s. Inspired by Annihilator, the highest-selling Canadian thrash metal group in history, game developer Play’n GO decided to create a 5-reel slot with 10 paylines that also features some of the band’s most popular songs like “Alison Hell,” “Never, Neverland,” and “Stonewell.” One can say that this might be a pleasant surprise for any heavy metal fan who decides to visit a gambling website for the first time. Jeff Waters’ image serves as the Wild symbol, and it can be the substitute for all other symbols with the exception of Bonus and Scatter. Three Bonus symbols will activate the Fun Palace feature, during which you will be required to pick dolls that hide different prizes.

Fans of the genre know well that glam metal wouldn’t be what it is without Twisted Sister. One of the most prominent bands to come out of the U.S. scene, Twisted Sister were famous for their unique humor as well as the time when frontman Dee Snider stood in front of the Senate to defend his band from accusations of inciting violence with their lyrics. Play’n GO was yet again inspired by this amazing band, so they created a slot using them as the theme. Metal fans have more reason than ever before to explore all the options offered by PA gambling sites and other online venues. Firstly because the game allows you to enjoy Twisted Sister band members as symbols. And secondly, because you can enjoy hits like “I Wanna Rock” and “We’re Not Gonna Take It” as you play.
