Ahead of Play’n GO’s launch of its latest heavy metal-themed slot – Lordi Reel Monsters – later this week, the slot supplier has released an interview with Mr Lordi himself.
Set to launch on April 27, Tomi Petteri Putaansuu, also known as Mr Lordi, has revealed that the whole experience was completely new for both himself and the band, and hopes that the title offers a “true Lordi experience”.
“It was pretty interesting for me personally because Lordi, as a band, we’ve never been involved in anything like this before,” he explained. “Not just the gaming world, but in any sense. So it was pretty interesting.
“I think the fans can expect a true Lordi experience. Every single detail within this game is personally supervised by me so I hope the fans will appreciate the effort that has been put into this whole thing so it is a real Lordi slot game.”
The launch of the slot later this week will also see the release of two new original songs created for the title called Reel Monsters and Better Hate Than Never.
Delving into the process of writing exclusively for a game and how it differs from producing a song for an album, Mr Lordi noted that, besides toning down the lyrics, nothing else really differs.
He explained: “For me, I write all the time. So for me, it’s no different if it’s going to be created for a Lordi album or a game. It doesn’t really differ from the process in any way, except that the lyrics need to be a little bit toned down than what I would usually write.”
Lordi Reel Monsters is a 7×7 grid slot that includes each member of the band who harness different features to aid players achieve wins, up to x4,000 the original bet.
The title comes with a free spins feature that encourages the player to pick and click one of the two new Lordi songs to play out on the grid.
