Alice Cooper Slots Free Spins and Review
A new heavy metal slot takes the stage
Over a career that has spanned many decades, Alice Cooper’s brand of shock rock music is the stuff of legends. This is of course a star who brings all sorts of theatrical horror to his shows including the death of some unfortunate chickens and (thankfully) fake babies. And his legend is now immortalised in slot format with Alice Cooper (School’s Out for Summer) slots.
In terms of layout, this is a 5 reel and 20 payline slot - and it features many references to what has made Alice Cooper so famous; for example his eye makeup. Or the use of pythons as a bonus symbol (several which have joined him on stage at his shows). And of course, this wouldn’t be an Alice Cooper slot without a kickass soundtrack. Launching the game will not only greet you with the ghostly face of Mr Cooper, but also the intro of the classic track School’s Out.
Awesome audio aside - does this game perform in the all important mechanics aspect? Or is this the slot version of theatrical horror? Let’s find out in our Alice Cooper slots review.
Ease of PlayWith a mere 20 paylines and just 5 reels - the new player will find this a great starting point to learn about online slots. That shouldn’t put of more seasoned slots enthusiasts however; there’s plenty of variety in the gameplay mechanics to keep you glued to the screen. One area that could use some usability improvement is the paytable, which seems a little cramped and hard to digest. All the information is there - but not in the most intuitive fashion.
Graphics and AnimationFans and metalheads alike will appreciate the visuals of this slot, which have stayed true to the legend himself. Some of the art has clearly been taken from promotional material from his music - while the traditional card suit symbols have been given a gothic makeover. Speaking of symbols, you will find your usual divide of high pays and low pays, alongside the bonus symbol (which is the python). Sadly there’s no dedicated wild symbol, but there is a random feature which adds a wild element...
Bonus FeaturesBefore we go into the Alice Cooper slot free spins round - let’s talk about the wild feature, which can happen at any time during the base game. Watch out for reels 2 and 4 which can be suddenly taken over by two ghostly reel wilds - the slot will then re-spin for a random number of times giving you plenty of chances to take home a win.
As for the Alice Cooper free spins, you will need three python bonus symbols to activate the feature. In an interesting twist, you will have to play a gamble round before you can get your spins. You will be given a total of 3 lives and each failed gamble will take away a life AND knock you down a place. This has to be one of the most interesting and interactive ways to start a bonus round ever. During the free spins, symbols can be accompanied by a mini python symbol - which will award even more free spins.
Finally, we have the Death Row feature - which is essentially a pick and click game. Choose from six switches and collect cash prizes underneath. You can also reach this bonus round if you manage to successfully gamble your way to the top of the free spins gamble round.
Our VerdictHeavy metal fans and rock lovers are not short of excellent musical slot options; Motorhead slots, Guns 'N' Roses, Jimi Hendrix Slots… the terms spoiled for choice springs to mind. And now, players face an even bigger conundrum with the excellent Alice Cooper slots. Granted, it’s not as complex or visually impressive as some of these other choices - but like the great man himself, this is slot showmanship at its very finest.
