Get ready to Rock!
Black Mamba from Play’n GO is a 5×5 grid slot based on the theme of the hard rock band Black Mamba. If not familiar with them, they are a female-fronted band from Viterbo, Italy. The cascading slot includes the Solo Feature, extra spins, wilds and the Concert Feature. Wins are recorded with three of a kind vertically or horizontally in a row.
Black Mamba from Play’n GO is a very volatility slot with an RTP of 96.50%.
Black Mamba – Game overview
Meet the four-person band members: Alexandra, Cecilia, Fred and Martina. The first three are the high-paying symbols, and any combination of the four will form a payline also. The low-paying symbols include drumsticks, guitar picks, headphones and microphones.
As we’d expect, the audio consists of rock music, including lyrics and other sound effects from features triggered and payline wins recorded. Winning symbols are removed from the grid and the remaining symbols already on the grid above fall down.
Game features of Black Mamba
Mamba Wild and Martina Wild
These two wilds can appear on any of the reels and substitute for any other symbol. Each can form their respective winning payline. A Martina symbol appears in the centre of win symbols of three band members, and a wild appears in the centre of the three other winning symbols. A win multiplier value increases on every new drop.
The game is based on the famous real-life Italian band Black Mamba.
A losing spin can lead to the activation of the Solo Features and every losing spin during extra spins. Each band member has a different ability, and the band member active will perform the following:
Martina: Martina will destroy the bottom row of symbols except for the wild, and Martina takes the place of a band member symbol providing that one is present. It triggers during the Concert and Extra Spins.
Cecilia: From one to two wild symbols are added somewhere on the grids.
Fred: A set of symbols change into another set of symbols.
Alexandra: Two sets of symbols are taken off the playing grid.
Every Cecilia, Fred or Alexandra feature that takes part in a win fills the charge meter, partitioned into six sections. Filling four sections will trigger the Concert Feature and filling six sections will overcharge the meter where the win multiplier is carried over into the Concert Feature. In this feature, consecutive Solo Features will play out starting with Alexandra, Cecilia, Fred and Martina.
Feature highlights include the Solo Feature, extra spins, wild and Concert Feature.
When the grid is completely cleared of symbols, then Extra Spins are triggered where a band member plays Solo on a losing spin. Martina does her thing on each turn. Collect four extra spins by overcharging the meter and two extra spins with 4 to 5 charges. The Concert Feature can be triggered during the extra spins for up to 50x total bet. If only wilds are left on the grid, then the slot will automatically remove them to help activate the extra spins.
Music themed slots
This isn’t the only collaboration of late from Play’n GO after releasing another slot based on the British metal band Demon and the heavy metal group Saxon.
Black Mamba opinion: Made for fans that can stomach high risk
Black Mamba is a collaboration between the Italian rock band and Play’n GO, and the group’s fans might kick out of playing it. This slot has a massive payout potential of up to 5,000x bet and some entertaining features involving the four band members to keep things rocking.
The high volatility means this slot may not be for everyone, and I found the payouts were relatively muted despite the potential. Still, fans of their music might want to check it out!
