Heavy Metal is a Microgaming pokie that you can find on Jackpot City and many other top casinos. This is a single payline pokie with a retro feel and some fast gameplay that is sure to please fans of the old-school arcade style.
Fans of Slipknot, Metallica, Iron Maiden and other bands that are loud and proud, shouldn’t get too excited about this Microgaming pokie, as the name has nothing to do with the music genre. In fact, it doesn’t really have anything to do with anything. There is a woman who looks like a clone of a character from Fifth Element, and there are some bullet symbols, but besides that there is no link to the title, and no discernible theme.
The woman is the highest paying symbol, but there is not exactly a wide choice of these, with the other symbols being plucked from the retro catalogue, including 7s and “Bars”. The highest win is 4,000 coins, which is not a great deal, but with so few symbols and lines, it’s much more accessible than the more enticing jackpots you’ll find on bigger pokies.
Heavy Metal has a minimum bet of $0.25, and you can bet as much as $15 per spin if you want.
Unfortunately, but perhaps not surprisingly considering this is a small, 1 payline pokie, Heavy Metal has no bonus rounds to speak of. This includes free spins, instant wins and even basic scatter symbols.
Heavy Metal is neither here nor there. We’re not sure of what the theme is supposed to be and there is no feature to speak of, but the RTP is good and the big win is not as far out of reach as the ones you will find on many other games.
