Play’n GO Launches the New Heavy Metal-Themed Sabaton Slot
The renowned developer of online casino games, Play’n GO, has recently added a brand-new game to its lineup of video slots. And what an addition this is!
The gaming company has teamed up with the legendary power metal band from Sweden, Sabaton, and their new creation looks sure to bring the house down.
Get Ready to Rock
Titled Sabaton, the newly launched game is the company’s second slot to have drawn inspiration from the Swedish rock and metal scene, following the launch of House of Doom, a game featuring music particularly developed by Candlemass.
If you’re a fan of the popular Swedish band, then you’re sure to enjoy this release, as every part of it – from the game’s soundtrack and symbols on the reels – is connected to Sabaton. But, even if you’re not a metalhead, this slot will appeal to you as it offers a number of exciting and potentially lucrative features.
Sabaton has a standard five-reel three-row layout, with a total of 10 fixed paylines, with a minimum of three matching symbols needed to start receiving payouts. As we’ve already pointed out, game symbols are based around the band, including both the Wild and the Scatter.
And while the band members appear as regular symbols, Sabaton’s lead singer Joakim Broden acts as the game’s Wild, substituting for all other icons – bar the Scatter – and helping punters grab additional winning combinations. The band’s logo is the Scatter symbol, used to activate the game’s Battalion Spins bonus round.
Exciting Features on Offer
Landing from 3 to 8 Scatters on the reels will activate the mystery symbol, turning all the Scatters into a randomly chosen icon. Players can definitely benefit from this, as this transformation increases their chances of forming winning combos. To trigger the Battalion Spins round, players will need to get 9 Scatters across the grid. Once they do this, they’ll get 7 spins, while one of the game’s symbols will be randomly chosen to be stacked while the feature is active.
During this feature, reel 2, 3, and 4 will stay linked, spinning with the same symbols, while the Scatter will be able to make its appearance as a Mega symbol, which will re-trigger the round and award 7 extra free spins to the count. Apart from this, the feature can also be re-triggered by landing 9 Scatters on the reels.
Metal Stacks and Mystery symbols work hand in hand during the Main Game. One symbol is chosen at random, and it gets stacked on the reel strip. The Chained Reels functionality enables 2 or even 3 adjacent reels to become linked and spin with the same real strop. This can occur on any adjacent reels.
The Last Stand feature, named after one of the band’s albums, gets up to 2 reels fully stacked with Wilds. This can be done on each and every spin, and in combination with the Chained Reels and the Battalion Spin, resulting in more than handsome payouts.
Speaking about the new slot, the band said the game looked awesome and pointed out they were thrilled with the end result.
In addition to Sabaton, Play’n GO has also recently added Inferno Star and Mahjong 88 to its portfolio.
