When you’re one of the most iconic bands of the last 30 years and your music has been played around the world to millions of people, what’s the best way to immortalise your success? An online pokie, of course. OK, so maybe it’s not quite the best way to be immortalised but it’s a pretty damn cool way and that’s exactly what the members of Guns and Roses thought when they allowed NetEnt to use their tracks for a new online pokie. Based on the band and featuring familiar sights and sounds from its career, the recent release from software developer NetEnt is yet another example of how online pokies draw inspiration from pop culture of the day. For example, if you were to click here and check out Pokies.com’s gaming lobby you’d slew of familiar images.

Continuing this tradition of fusing cultural icons with spinning reels and prize money is the Guns and Roses pokie. Available on Pokies.com and powered by NetEnt, this game uses an innovative audio system to sync each beat of the band’s classic songs with the action on screen.

That means when you spin the reels you’ll see the images and bonuses drop in time with classics such as Welcome to the Jungle, Sweet Child O’ Mine and November Rain. Moreover, if you simply want to load up the game and listen to the band’s greatest hits without spending any money you can simply enter free play mode and rock out until your heart’s content.

Commenting on the new game, NetEnt’s chief product officer, Simon Hammon, explained that the game is a unique chance for players to enjoy the sounds of Guns and Roses as well as one of the most innovative slot products to-date. “Guns N’ Roses are huge and iconic and it’s great to launch with one of the most legendary rock bands in history. We’ve honoured them with our most ambitious ever and NetEnt can’t wait for players to have a chance to enjoy the musical game experience,” said Hammon. Essentially, if you’re a fan of Guns and Roses and want a new way to enjoy their greatest hits you can go online and spin wins while Axel Rose belts out his best notes. While it might not be the “best” way to immortalise the iconic rock band, it’s certainly and entertaining and potentially lucrative way to do it. Of course, if you want to see the guys do their thing in real life you can check them out at the Coachella festival in April!
