Get ready to party in Mild Rockers, a 6 reel, 80 payline heavy metal-themed video slot from Lightning Box Games. The base game lives up to the mild part of this game’s name but it explodes into life in the feature round that awards free spins and encore spins with loads of extra wilds. Play on your desktop, tablet or mobile from 50p per spin.
The stage at a gig forms the backdrop to the 3x4x5x5x4x3 reels here with purple and black dominating the colour scheme. Complementing the lower value royal symbols are a drum kit, a keyboard player, the crowd, a rock guitarist and the Mild Rockers logo which becomes very important in the feature round. Helping you create those winning lines is the rock chick who is the wild – she substitutes for everything apart from the red lips which is the scatter.
Land 3, 4, 5 or 6 of the lips symbols on the same spin and you’ll trigger the Free Games feature and with it, 8 free spins. Hope to see the special Lips +1 symbol during those free spins as every time 1 lands you’ll receive an Encore Spin. It’s possible to land up to 6 Lips +1 scatters on the same free spin which means up to 6 Encore Spins – this can lead to 48 Encore Spins.
During the Encore Spins, all of the Mild Rockers logo symbols transform into wilds. These can land fully stacked to create some potentially very lucrative winning clusters
The base game in Mild Rockers isn’t the most exciting – in fact, it can be as interesting as a 20-minute King Crimson guitar solo. The game really crackles into life in the Free Games feature though, especially if you manage to land some Encore Spins. The extra wilds on offer here can quickly have an impact though.
You wouldn’t expect a video slot with such a loud and raucous theme to be a low volatility affair and Mild Rockers certainly isn’t. The variance here is in the medium to high range with maximum payouts of 1,400 times your total bet on each spin.
Heavy metal isn’t to everyone’s taste (and we’ll be honest, not usually ours) but this game is playable enough even if you’re not a fan. The base game action is ordinary but the free spins round makes Mild Rockers a gig worth attending. I also recommend you try NetEnt’s Jimi Hendrix and Microgaming’s Electric Diva if you like the theme.
