Black Mamba Slot Review

Play ’N Go has turned the volume right up to create Black Mamba. Based on a band of the same name, it’s a super volatile game that comes with symbol drops with expanding multipliers, modifier extras and a free spins feature. Join the virtual mosh pit from between 20p and £100 per spin.

Rock band design

There’s a strong musical theme to the design in Black Mamba. On the reels you’ll find microphones, headphones, a plectrum, drumsticks and cymbals and 3 member of the band – Alexandra, Cecilia and Fred who each award 0.3, 1 or 5 times your stake if you land 3, 4 or 5 on a payline.

The Black Mamba ban logo is the wild. As well as substituting for all the standard symbols it pays 1, 3 and 25 times your stake. Appearing in the features only is lead singer Martina. She’s a second wild that comes with a 2x multiplier attached. She also pays 2, 6 or 50 times your stake in her own right.

Symbol drop reels

To create a winner, you’ll need to land 3, 4 or 5 matching symbols either vertically or horizontally on the 5x5 reel grid. After a winning combination is created, the successful symbols are blasted away and new ones replace them. The drops keep on coming as long as a new winner is formed. Each successive win also increases a multiplier by 1x. This multiplier resets following a winless drop.

4 solo modifiers

On each spin, 1 band member will be active. Following a winless spin, you could trigger the active band member’s special modifier.

  • Alexandra feature - 2 sets of symbols are removed from play and a symbol drop follows.
  • Cecilia feature - 1 or 2 wilds are added to random positions on the reels.
  • Fred feature - 1 set of symbols transforms into a new symbol to hopefully create a new winner.
  • Martina feature – removes all the standard symbols from the bottom row of the grid and Martina replaces the band members. This extra can only trigger in Concert and Free Spins mode.

Concert feature

Land a winning combination made up of Alexandra, Cecilia or Fred and you will fill up a charge meter. Fill 4 positions on the meter to activate the Concert feature or 6 to Overcharge it. A new symbol drop takes place. Each band member then performs a solo and triggers their special modifier. These play out in order. Overcharge the Meter on the triggering spin and you’ll carry over any multipliers that were in active.

Free Spins feature

If you manage to clear the whole of the reel grid of symbols, you’ll activate the Free Spins feature. Once again, a band member is active on each free spin. Their modifier becomes active following every winless free spin.

Martina is active during every spin so there are ample opportunities to bring 2x wild multipliers into play. Clear the grid during the free spins and an instant bonus worth 50 times your stake awaits. You can add more free spins to your total by charging or overcharging the meter.

High variance & high voltage

Like most slot games in the Play’ N Go catalogue, Black Mamba is an extremely volatile title. You can expect plenty of big bankroll swings here. You can win, however, win up to 5,000 times your stake on each spin or free spin. The rock theme won’t be for everyone but if you like slot games that amp up the variance, then you won’t be disappointed with what Black Mamba has to offer.

Well designed with some funky gameplay and volcanic volatility, it’s another exciting release from the Play ’N Go stable. If you want rock music inspired slot games, Play ‘N Go offer you Sabaton and Demon.
