The rock ‘n’ roll slot player
If you’re a fan of grunge, these rock ‘n’ roll slot games will have you jumping around with your air guitar in tow, irrespective of whether you have a win.
Guns N’ Roses
This had to be first on our list due to the title arguably offering the best soundtrack available here. The much anticipated slot for 2016 was created by NetEnt in affiliation with Bravado International Group meaning we are greeted to the authentic audio by one of the best rock ‘n’ roll bands, Guns N’ Roses.
Featuring 20 paylines across 5 reels, there’s the incredible option to pick your preferred track while playing the reels from their top hits including Welcome to the Jungle, Sweet Child O’ Mine, Paradise City, November Rain, and Chinese Democracy. You can let all the tracks play as you activate the array of features or pick which song you want to hear as you play – a truly incredible pokies sound experience.
Rock ‘n’ Roller
Created by Playtech, this is a classic slot machine with three reels and five paylines – perfect for those after a basic fruit machine with a good soundtrack.
If you look closely at the reels you can see they are set on a jukebox, paying homage to old school diners, and when you hear the soundtrack you’ll know why. There’s rockabilly-style music which goes off on every spin and you can even hear a few tunes from the King himself, Elvis, including Tutti Frutti.
Electronic/dance slot players
If you’re not one for rock ‘n’ roll and prefer an electronica soundtrack to rise you up for a win, the following title is probably the only option which doesn’t make you want to bang your head on a wall.
DJ Wild has been created by ELK Studios and features an opening introductory video with a song which could give Flume a run for his money. The experimental electronica track isn’t too overwhelming either so you can play without getting irritated.
This continues to play as the 10 paylines appear across the five reels and with Expanding Wilds, Re-Spins on each win with an Expanding Wilds and more, you’ll want to dance the night away after playing the pokie – you may be able to if you win the 170,000 coin non-progressive jackpot.
Mariachi music slot games
Dating back to 19th century Western Mexico, this genre is very specific to certain tastes, but the sounds the Mariachi musicians create is incredible, which you can find on the following online slot games.
It’s a fiesta as soon as you open this slot title, but the music doesn’t kick in until you start spinning, and as it is very light, it could be a good title to get you into the genre.
NetEnt have created this fun slot game with five reels and four rows (instead of the usual three), plus a whopping 40 paylines and unique Colossal symbols too. But the real fun starts when you trigger the Free Spins feature and you are transformed to a new set of reels and a new soundtrack, which really livens up the mood – the addition of laughing, cheering and fireworks are added to the Mariachi music to create a cheerful atmosphere.
Created by boutique slot developer, Thunderkick, this incredible slot game is based on the Day of the Dead and the soundtrack features the background noise of celebrations including the upbeat and exciting tunes from a Mariachi band.
However, it isn’t until we get a win on this unique five reels and 17 paylines pokie, that we see the five skeletal Mariachi band members light up and sing. Other than the fact that this game looks and sounds totally awesome, the best part is the 32x multiplier – when this is scored by consecutive wins, the band really gets singing and you will most likely be singing along with them as your winnings rack up.
Arcade games soundtrack
If you were bizarrely fond of the sounds and noises arcade games delivered, you can relive them through these arcade-style slot games and their nostalgic sound effects.
Created by the innovative software developer, ThunderKick, Arcader has a retro theme which is very reminiscent of the 80’s and perfect for capturing the audio portion of an arcade gaming environment. There are Free Spins, Sticky Expanding Wilds, and Multipliers to modernise this online slot machine, but the sound effects will transform you into a different time.
This retro-themed pokie by NetEnt is perfect for those who grew up in arcades or those who love video games. With neon graphics and a digitalised monophonic soundtrack, you will be forgiven if you thought you were playing an arcade game instead of a real money 5 reel, 4 row, and 40 payline pokie.
Movie and TV soundtrack pokies
For those who get excited about slot games themed upon their favourite film or TV show, we can only assume you will also enjoy their soundtrack. Some can be a hit, while others totally flop, but the following slot games offer the best tracks to make you feel as though you are watching the movie or show on which it’s based.
Game of Thrones
This Microgaming title offers two versions – a 243 ways to win format and a 15 paylines format. Both, however, feature the opening soundtrack from the highly acclaimed Game of Thrones television show. While this might be a horrible reminder for some (due to the length of the opener), it will most likely excite you and gear you up to watch the 10 episode seasons again.
While there isn’t a real soundtrack or song to this slot, the audio effects are so unreal we had to include this on the list. If you are a fan of Jurassic Park, you will be immersed in the world of dinosaurs with this authentic 243 ways to win title by Microgaming. With backing sounds you’d expect to find in the forest where these dinosaurs roamed, plus the life like roars from these extinct animals, this title is perfect for fans of Jurassic Park.
