Play’n GO has released yet another branded slot game that carries the same name as the band that inspired it. Black Mamba is a 5 reel slot with 5 rows and a Cluster Pays system. From the design to the gameplay it’s a game to be recommended. It has great features and well-designed characters to represent the band giving the player the impression that he’s right there on stage getting ready to perform.
Play’n GO is one of the top gaming providers out there and their creators find inspiration just about anywhere. Using the band Black Mamba as inspiration is great since they are a hard rock band and there is a lot that they could incorporate in the overall design of the game. The graphics are to die for and the soundtrack consists of the bands' songs. The scene takes place right on stage with posters and flashing lights. Everything is made to resemble the band and give the player the feeling of being on stage.
Some of the symbols include headphones, guitar picks, microphones, drumsticks, and the band members Alexandra, Cecilia, and Fred. The logo of the band and the lead singer Martin, act as the wild symbols and substitute for all other symbols. The game offers a Cluster Pays system that is very beneficial for the player. The winning symbols disappear from the reels allowing new ones to roll in and make winning combinations. The player can bet a minimum of 0.20 and a maximum of a 100 coins per spin. The game offers the player the possibility to win up to 5,000x the stake in a single spin. It is a maximum volatility game full of surprises that has a 96,5% RTP which is quite a generous offer.
Black Mamba has some pretty interesting features that add to the whole rock band experience and not to mention help the player win some serious cash. The game offers 4 solo modifiers represented by the 4 band members with one active on each spin. The first one is the Alexandra feature that removes 2 sets of symbols from the reels allowing new ones to drop. The Cecilia feature adds 1 or 2 wilds to the reels, placing them on random places and getting them to hopefully match with other symbols. Then there is the Fred feature that makes one set of symbols turn into a different symbol hopefully causing a new win. The fourth is the Martina feature that can only be triggered during the Concert feature or free spins. It removes all symbols from the bottom row and Martina replaces the band members.
This brings us to the Concert feature which is activated when the charge meter is filled up. The way to charge the meter is by landing winning combinations that consist of Alexandra, Cecilia and Fred symbols. When activated each band member performs a solo and triggers their modifier. These play out one by one and hopefully score the player the big win.
Black Mamba also has a Free Spins feature that is activated when the whole grid is cleared. Every free spin a member of the band is active just like it is in the main game. Martina stays active all the time allowing the player to activate x2 multipliers. Also, if the player clears the grid during the round, they get an award of 50 times the stake. By charging the meter, the player gets additional free spins.
Overall, Black Mamba by Play’n GO is a great game with an interesting theme. The creators have made a real tribute to the band with the design. The characters are nicely done and the bands’ music in the background adds to the player’s on stage feel. It’s a game with some fun features that result in even better payouts, worth trying out.
