Powered by Betsoft, Rock Star has five reels and three rows and up to thirty paylines; rock-fan players can watch the introductory movie when the game begins for a glimpse into the life of the long-haired rockers strutting the stage.
The reels spin on a bridge-like construction with speakers and spotlights providing the game's functions with a collection of buttons and notifications. Players should definitely leave the sound on for this game as there is a pounding rock audio to characterise the gameplay.
RockStar is all about rockers and rock music. As mentioned the reels of the game are placed on a stage and include all the various musical instruments concerned and a cacophony of flashing lights. The gameplay takes place with guitar riffs playing in the background, and players should watch the introduction as it includes animated sequences where players will be able to see the band prepare for a performance.
The bonus rounds in Rockstar include several interesting music-related games. Players will even be asked to play along with the band or just sit back and chill and listen to a solo from one of the band's players. The game is profoundly likeable, and players will definitely find themselves nodding to the rock soundtrack as the game proceeds.

Clicking on the “Select Lines” button will amend the number of paylines that players wish to play within their said game.
Pressing on “Bet Per Line” decides the number of coins to bet per active paylines.
Hitting “Spin” starts the game and will begin to spin the reels in action.
Players who prefer high-rolling games can click the “Max Bet Spin” button and this automatically set's the reels to the highest wager possible.
Likewise “Autoplay” automatically turns the reels for a set number of times without interruption for quicker gameplay.
Symbols in Rock Star
All the icons are related to the rock-star lifestyle theme and include four band members, a bottle of Jack Daniels, a female groupie, a recording contract and two magazine covers.
There are two wild icons – gold and platinum vinyl discs that are worth two different multipliers, one with an x2 multiplier and the other with an x5 one. Should both of them land on any winning payline the multiplier is increased to a whopping x10. The wild symbol won’t replace any of the bonus icons that are a concert ticket and a concert symbol.
