Devil Hands at the Ready as We Embark on a World Tour of Explosive Action in the New KISS Reels of Rock Slot

If Christmas slots arent your thing, then December still has a few treats in store with the upcoming release of the KISS Reels of Rock slot, where you travel the world on tour with this iconic rock band, joining Starchild, Demon, Spaceman and Catman on an epic world tour.

KISS were hugely popular in the late 1970s with live performances that featured fire breathing, smoking guitars, shooting rockets and pyrotechnics (source), which act as a perfect backdrop for an explosive slot machine!

The scheduled release date for this highly volatile online slot is the 9th of December, 2021. Whether you are a rock fan or not, with maximum potential wins stated as up to 50,000x, this may well be worth taking a look purely in terms of volatility and potential!

KISS Reels of Rock - Base Gameplay

In KISS Reels of Rock, the base gameplay plays out on an unusual  2-3-4-4-3-2 set of reels, this can be extended to a more familiar 6x4 reel set during the bonus round (Encore Spins) where 4096 winning ways are active.

The reel strips have a mixture of rock-themed symbols along with enlarged premium symbols which are cartoon styled depictions of the rock band members Starchild, Demon, Spaceman and Catman.

The backdrop to this slot is a rock concert stage, giving ample opportunity for crowd interaction, explosions, fire breathing and band members smashing guitars when special features activate.

To keep the base gameplay ticking along nicely there are two randomly activated features Lock and Load and Drive me Wild which can assist in creating wins.

Base Game Features

Lock and Load

Lock and Load can trigger randomly on any spin. This feature causes two highlighted reels to become synchronized, and once they stop, the symbols on these will match on both reels.

However, the reel pairs this can occur on are fixed, so you will see either reels 1 & 6, 2 & 4, or 3 &4 illuminated once this feature activates.

Drive me Wild

The Drive me Wild feature is also activated on any spin at random. This adds a guaranteed 2x Wild symbol onto the reels, but this can only appear on reels 2-5. It will never overlay a Scatter symbol or a premium band member symbol either.

In base gameplay, these two mini-features cannot activate simultaneously, but during the exceptional Encore Spins in the bonus round, this can happen!

Apart from these two small features, the primary goal of this slot is to trigger the free spins rounds, which requires the usual three or more Scatter symbols to activate the Free Spins selector.

Once triggered, there are five different Free Spins modes, each with a few twists regarding volatility and a varying degree of the extra special Encore Free Spins on offer (more on this special mode later).

18+. Play Safe. New UK customers only. Opt-in required.  1x per customer. Free spins on Lucky Mr Green only Max. 50 free spins at £0.10/spin with 35x wagering. Spins expire 72 hours from issue. Game, country, currency, player restrictions and terms apply.

Scatter Symbol

The KISS Scatter symbol appears on all reels. Three or more Scatters landing anywhere are required to trigger the free spins selection screen.

During the regular free spins round, all scatters are removed from the reels. These make an appearance back in the final spin of the bonus round, where if landing in view again (3 or more) will trigger the special Encore Free Spins round.

There are no extra spins for additional scatters on this machine, given the free spins selection is down to the player to select.

Wild Symbol

The Wild and Multiplier Wild symbols act as a substitute to any symbols on the reels helping to create winning combinations.

The special 2x Multiplier Wilds are added from the Drive me Wild feature, occurring in the base game and the Encore Free Spins round.

Free Spins

Three or more Scatter symbols trigger the Free Spins Selector, there are five options to choose from with a varying number of regular free spins awarded as well as a number of the unique Encore Spins which may be triggered on the final spin of the bonus round, but these Encore Spins are not guaranteed!

The options are as follows.

  • Johannesburg (20 Normal, 1 Encore Free Spins)
  • Sydney (16 Normal, 2 Encore Free Spins)
  • London (12 Normal, 3 Encore Free Spins)
  • Rio de Janeiro (8 Normal, 4 Encore Free Spins)
  • Tokyo (4 Normal, 5 Encore Free Spins)

During the bonus round, the reel synchronization occurs on every free spin. In essence, the Lock and Load feature is active during every spin.

On the final spin of any bonus rounds, the Scatter symbols are added back to the reels. Landing 3 or more during this last spin will trigger the Encore Free Spins, similar to special free spins modes found on other Play'n GO slots such as Testament.

Encore Free Spins

The number of Encore Free Spins awarded depends on which destination you chose in the Free Spins selector, given this feature is where the biggest winning potential on this slot lies, we would recommend opting for the most volatile and most Encore spins found in the Tokyo free spins option.

The Encore free spins play out on a fully enlarged 6x4 reel set,  increasing the number of winning ways. 2 reels are once again synchronized on every spin with the addition that all Wilds landing during feature have a 2x multiplier attached to them.

Our playtesting shows that it only takes one good Encore spin with several wilds added to create vast wins (see screenshots). 50,000x might be an almost impossible win, but this slot can easily dish wins well over 1000x in a single spin.


The paytable displayed below shows the premium win symbols payouts based on a €5 stake size.

The top-paying Wild symbol pays a 25x stake for 6 of a kind win. Factor in that during the Encore Free SPins, there are 4096 payline along with 2x Multiplier Wilds producing multiple winning ways.

KISS Reels of Rock Slot Overall Opinions

Play’n GO has done an excellent job in encapsulating the whole vibe of KISS in the KISS Reels of Rock Slot, with the concert backdrop, over the top animations, fire and obligatory guitar smashing during the special features.

Whilst the random base games features and even free spins round can seem a little tame, the significant excitement on this slot is to be found in the Encore Free Spins, regardless of how volatile the free spin options might seem to be, the true potential of this machine is from the Encore Spin mode landed in the final spin, and is critical. Thankfully regular bonus triggers seem pretty frequent, so even whilst you might not reach encore free spins too often, the chances are there.

During our playtests, we managed several huge wins that were always during the Encore Free Spins, generally, one single huge win would make up the majority of the total win, with multiplier wilds being the key symbol.

Overall this slot does KISS justice both in terms of the stunning visuals and the bonus features. As such, should appeal to fans of the band and slot players simply looking for a fun and very volatile game to play.

Play’n GO hasn’t redesigned the wheel here in terms of features and gameplay, but they have produced a highly polished slot that is simply great fun to play and will keep you going back for more and rewarding too during the Encore Spins!
