Nolimit City are back and this time, it’s Anarchy in the UK with this 1970’s punk rock themed game Punk Rocker Slot , which we think is one of their best yet. The rebellious nature of this slot has done well in capturing the essence of the defiant, gritty 1970’s London. The game can be a little confusing, but only because its jam packed full of features. Get ready to shout some profanities at the screen, and the slot might even shout some back…Mohawk ready? Mine is.
First impressions of Punk Rocker make you rather excited to play it, it’s an innovative and interesting aesthetic and the design is full of things reminiscent of a bygone era of doc martins and cringeworthy greasy mohawks (Sorry Punks). You may not have lived through this era, but don’t worry, this game still has something to offer you as well.
Punk Rocker is 243 ways to win video slot, which means that symbols only have to be connected via the adjacent reel rather than in a traditional payline.
Ways of winning increase in certain conditions up to a whopping 46,656 ways which will up the potential for some of those big hits we’re looking for. Volatility in this game is quite high, but first bonus in, playing this game on demo mode returned a nice 100x win on the bonus.
Players not in the UK have a bonus buy option in this game which can be bought for 80 or 238 times your bet, depending on which one you want. Let’s get into the base game and break down some of what this game has to offer.
There are 10 symbols, with the top symbol in this game being Winston Churchill with a punk makeover, even Elton John is here. A winning combination of the same symbol pays from left to right on adjacent reels, and there are 5 reels standard, with a locked 6th reel which will up the ways of winning once unlocked to 729.
The game features a wild symbol which substitutes for all other symbols in the game except for scatter symbols, and can even throw in Molotov wilds which will turn all symbols above where it lands into wilds, this is important as it means that you could end up with a whole reel of wilds.
We also have an xWays mystery symbol that can hold 2 to 4 of the same symbols inside, and will expand on the reels. These symbols have the potential to land on all reels, and expand a reel up to 6 symbols high. Multiple of these xWays mystery symbols can land on any given spin.
This interesting xWays feature is activated in the main game and Free spins, and you even have the potential in the main game to expand Punk symbols up to 20 high. xWays in the bonus will always expand to 4 high.
Be prepared for those aforementioned profanities…if xWays expand and don’t form a win, the game will share in your anguish and start swearing with you.
If there’s one thing in this world that is worse than heartbreak, or Mods if you’re a Punk Rocker…It’s landing 2 scatters with a 3rd nowhere to be seen. However, it’s always a nice touch when a game provider throws in a sort of consolation prize, for landing two.
In Punk Rocker, when you land 2 scatters, providing a 3rd did not land, you will get a Riot Re-spin. This will change the scatters to Molotov wilds, and unlock that 6th reel we mentioned earlier. You didn’t land the bonus, but you’ve got 729 ways to win, two Molotov reels, and a dream.
You could say this game features two bonuses, however they’re more or less the same in the way that they function. Anarchy Free Spins will trigger when you land 3 Scatter symbols, which is represented by the London Underground symbol.
You’ll get 8 free spins and the 6th reel will once again unlock. The game features some enhancements in this mode that make for a very interesting Bonus.
The scatter symbols become roaming wilds, and a London Underground Carriage will spin above the reels. Once the Carriage stops, it will reveal a number of the following enhancements to the game, which will be unlocked if one of your roaming wilds falls onto the reel below.
It should be mentioned that an enhancement is not always guaranteed, even if your roaming wild lands on the reel. It all depends on where the tube stops and whether or not any enhancements land above the reel.
Civil War Free Spins is the one you want. This will trigger when 4 scatters land in the base game and will also award 8 spins. The serious potential of this game is unlocked during this bonus, an extra roaming wild will make the world of difference in getting them connections, and it will also serve as a means to unlock those enhancements.
Fantastic slot!! Punk Rocker from NoLimit City might be a little complicated, but that’s because there’s a lot going on. They’ve packed this game full of features to keep you entertained and have clearly put a lot of thought into the chaotic visuals.
I wouldn’t be surprised if we see regular stories of some very massive hits on this game, its hard to ignore the potential it has with the xWays, Molotov wilds, Re-spins and two different levels of Free Spins.
NoLimit City has outdone their selves with this title. It’s loud, assertive, volatile and everything a game based on Punk Rock should be.
