Twister Sister slot from Play’N Go (those lovely people who brought us the Ring of Odin slot and Book of Dead) has cascading reels, 2 kinds of wilds, mega symbols and more. In fact, a whole host of features! I suggest you turn the volume down before you start – this heavy-metal themed game is going to be something of a noise fest…
Legendary band Twisted Sister rose to fame in the 1980’s, and are best known for their hit song “We’re Not Gonna Take It. Well, I say best known, I have never heard of it, still, but I’m much more likely to be listening to Tchaikovsky to get my thrills…
This crew of overly-coiffured big-haired rockers in tight trousers are here to help you head bang and scoop wins of up to 4,500 x bet. So, the question is; are you ready to rock? This game has more energy than the Tesla Jolt slot from No Limit City.
Your reel grid is flanked by speakers on both sides and a neon pink electric guitar sits to the left of the reels. You’ll also see the Twisted Sister band logo in the backdrop done up in 80s neon. As you’d expect, the soundtrack is made up of the bands greatest hits.
Some decent visuals but it’s not Play’N Go’s best-looking game.
Twisted Sister slot has 6 reels and 6 rows. There are no pay lines, but instead the slot uses a Cluster Pays mechanic that gives you wins for 5x or more matching symbols next to each other. These can be either horizontally or vertically. It’s difficult to believe that this game was designed by the same people who created the Jolly Roger slot – that traditional pirate escapade. What happened?!
Spin the metal madness reels from £0.10 to a maximum of £100 per go.
Your symbols on the reels include: vinyl (remember that compadres?) badges, album covers and guitar picks as your low value symbols and the 5 band members with perms. The highest paying symbol in this slot is the lead singer premium, who will award you 250x for a cluster of 25x symbols.
The wild icon is purple and gold symbol marked with wild on it, and will substitute for all other symbols on the reels. There is also the Angry Dad wild Scatter icon who will come in very handy
After a win is formed, the successful symbols are removed and symbol drop follows. If a new winning cluster is formed, the process is repeated. The cascades continue until no new winning combos can be made.
This is a nice little addition to the base game, my fine friends…
Whenever a band member lands it will fill up a position on the Charge Meter on the right of the reels. For every 5 symbols on the Meter, you’ll be giving one of the following mini bonuses at the end of your spin:
A random band member will destroy all lower value symbols on the reels to create a new drop and the chance to make new wins.
Go Wild Feature
A band member is chosen at random and all the corresponding icons will turn wild.
All band member icons on the reels will transform into the same symbol.
Dad Gets Angry
After any non-win spin, the Dad Gets Angry feature can be set off at random. Next, 2x Angry Dad Wild Scatters are added to the reels which is a gift as it’s these grumpy icons that trigger the We’re Not Gonna Take It feature (see below).
We’re Not Gonna Take It
Here’s the main event…
When an Angry Dad Wild Scatter lands it gets collected in the guitar Anger Meter. Rack up 4x or more and it’s bonus time!
If you’re lucky enough to land more than 5, the Anger Meter will go into overdrive and you’ll get a win multiplier that increases by x1 for each extra icon you got – with no limit!
That’s right, an unlimited multiplier! No, your ears do not deceive you…
Next, a brand new set of symbols drops onto the reels along with one 2×2 Mega Band symbol and 4 sticky Scatter Wilds. The Mega Symbol will now become a walking wild, and travel across the grid towards one of the wild scatters. When the Mega Symbol reaches the wild scatter and forms a winning combination, that wild scatter is removed. This continues until all the Wild Scatters are gone.
The Monkey Verdict
Twisted Sister slot is quite entertaining (especially if 80s rock is your thing), and the myriad bonuses keep your balance pretty healthy. But, it’s not quite as good as the NetEnt Rocks series that took on Guns N’ Roses, Jimi Hendrix and Ozzy Osbourne…
Hang on a jiffy, perhaps I do like heavy metal after all!
