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).
