Get ready to rock ‘n roll with WMS’s Kiss. Named for the famous rock band, this online slot delivers a live concert experience featuring legendary, hit songs like “Detroit Rock City,” “Rock and Roll All Nite” and “Shout it Out Loud.” Released in 2013, Kiss offers an RTP of 95,98% with Free Spins, Stacked Wilds and Colossal Reels. While Kiss is not currently available via mobile device, play online from any Windows desktop.
“Shout it Out Loud”
Kiss features a unique slot design with 2 separate reel interfaces on the same screen. There is a Main Reel Set (4-row, 5-reel, 20-payline) to the left, and a Colossal Reel Set (12-row, 5-reel, 80-payline) on the right giving Kiss a total of 100-adjustable paylines. Kiss is one of those online slots which incorporates real concert elements and hit songs right into the overall slot design. Animations such as a Kiss band member spitting fire and video clips of live concerts liven up Bonus Feature activations. The music comes straight from Kiss’s top hits, and is sure to satisfy diehard fans. While it can be said that the physical slot machine version, found in traditional casinos, offers a more immersive concert experience, the online version offers the convenience of enjoying Kiss at home.
All values for Bet/2 Lines, Balance and Win are displayed in cash. To select a Total Cash Bet ranging from 10p-£250 at Vera&John, first choose a number of paylines (20-100), then choose a Bet/2 Lines (1p-£5.00). Paytable matching symbols values are listed in cash and change as the slot auto-calculates potential wins based on bet selection. Check them out to see just how much there is to win before hitting spin.
Kiss has 12 slot symbols with 4 special symbols and 8 regular symbols. The special symbols include a Kiss Feature Scatter symbol which only appears on reels 1, 3, & 5 of both sets, and a Kiss Wild symbol which replaces any except the Feature symbol. Other special symbols include Paul Stanly and Gene Simmons Expanding symbols which cover 3 Main Reel spaces/7 Colossal Reel spaces. There are 4 higher-paying regular symbols including Gene Simmons’ Tongue, Red Haired Stanly, Guitar, Guitar Pick, and 4 lower-paying symbols including Ace, King, Queen and Jack.
Kiss has left to right gameplay on both Colossal and Main Reels alike. Get 3+ of any symbol on adjacent reels, starting from reel 1, to win. Single payline wins pay extremely low. To profit along a single payline, get 5+ of the higher-paying regular symbols or Expanding symbols. Fortunately, multiple wins on differing lines are counted toward the Total Win which helps to pad the bankroll.
The highest value symbol of this online slot is Paul Stanly which pays (£2.50, 50p, 25p) for a Total Bet selection of 50p. This symbol gives Kiss the potential to award up to 5x/Total Bet along a single pay line. Factoring in the potential to win along 100 paylines, Kiss has the overall potential to award up to £125,000 each spin with maximum bet selection.
WMS slots offer extensive Autoplay options. Kiss’s Autoplay allows players to manually set it to stop spinning when a set number of consecutive spins is reached, a set number of minutes has passed, or when a set amount staked has been reached. Players can also set it to stop when the Balance increases/decreases by a set amount, when a single win meets/exceeds a set amount or upon a Big Win award.
Kiss Game Settings allow players to toggle sound on/off.
Kiss Slot Bonus Features
Kiss Free Spin Feature: If 3+ Kiss Feature Scatters appear on either the Colossal or Main Reel sets, then a number of Free Spins is awarded relative to the number of Scatters that initially triggered the Feature. Spin 3 Kiss Scatters for 8 Free Spins with a multiplier of 2x the Total Bet, spin 4 Scatters for 12 Free Spins with 5x the Total Bet or spin 5 Scatters for 20 Free Spins with 20x the Total Bet.
Stacked Wilds and Symbol Transfers: The appearance of 4 Stacked Wilds on any reel of the Main Reel Set triggers the appearance of a fire spitting rock legend who sets an entire, corresponding Colossal Reel on fire with Stacked Wilds. For example, if Main Reel 3 contains 4 Stacked Wilds, then Colossal Reel 3 will be covered in Stacked Wilds as well. It is possible for more than 1 reel to be covered in Stacked Wilds at a time.

Spin for Cash While Listening to Your Favorite Rock Legends
Kiss takes its place among several popular slots styled after famous rock bands. Its Main Reel/Colossal Reel design is quite effective and makes for an interesting play. While testing the demo version, we won around half of our 150 spins which is frequent when compared to other slots. Most of those were multiple payline wins. However, only around 20% of all wins combined were profitable. Stacked Wilds triggered 10 times and contributed to several multiple payline wins. Free Spins triggered once in 150 spins awarding a small win of 3x/Total Bet. For more slots featuring rock legends, check out NetEnt’s popular Guns N’ Roses or Jimi Hendrix slots.
