Beware, it will be loud, it will be dark and it will be mysterious! Famous Swedish power metal band Sabaton is coming to town on a set of high-octane slot reels from Play’n GO. The game is just as volatile as the their music which is dominated by war and heroic battle lyrics. The wild action on the concert stage has been transformed into a powerplay on reels with Metal Stacks, Mystery and Mega Symbols, two random features and the finale, Battalion Free Spins that can lead to wins of up to 5,000 times your stake.
Sabaton is a video slot with five reels, three rows and 10 fixed paylines. Wins are paid for three to five matching symbols on a line from left to right only. You headbanging session can go down on desktop, mobile or desktop from as little as 0.10 credits and peaks at 100 credits. The highly volatile game (we scored it as an 11/10) comes with an RTP of 96.50%.
Graphics and Visuals
While other developers such as Netent and Big Time Gaming have released multiple rock titles, the Sabaton slot is Play’n GO’s first foray into branded games. And they picked one of the wildest bands of our days. One of their typical concert stage set-ups with flashing spotlights and armoury, all with a dark and sinister feeling, serves as the fitting backdrop to a game window that looks like a tank war machine with countless cannons, machine guns and mortars firing throughout the gameplay. On top of that, you can headbang to original Sabaton tracks as they will be blearing from your speakers.
The low-value symbols fit into the battle theme and are in ascending order grenades, swords, WWII pilot hats with bullets and Roman legionnaire helmets. Pays for a five of a kind range from 2.5x to 4x your stake. They are followed by four of the current band members, in ascending order they are guitarist Tommy Johansson, drummer Hannes van Dahl, guitarist Chris Rörland, and bassist Pär Sundström. Hit five on a payline to win 7.5x to 10x your bet.
Their lead singer Joakim Brodénis is the wild and top-paying symbol with 100x your stake for a five of a kind. The Sabaton band emblem is the scatter and will trigger the Batallion Spins when minimum nine land on a spin.
Metal Stacks, Mystery and Mega Symbols
The slot is filled to the brim with explosive random and bonus features. We’ll start off with Metal Stacks and Mystery Symbols where 0ne of the regular pay symbol or the wild is randomly selected at the start of each spin to appear in super stacks.
Additionally, all five band members can appear as Mega Symbol in 3×3 to 5×3 sizes during any of the features, providing the potential for bigger wins. A full screen of Joakim wild symbols will pay 1,000x your bet.
Sabaton Random Slot Features
Play’n GO went all out and created not one, but two random features for the Sabaton slot – Chained Reels and Last Stand. The first is available in the base game only while the second can also trigger in the free spins round.
- Chained Reels: Two or three adjacent reels are synchronized and will display matching symbol combinations.
- Last Stand: One or two random reels will turn into a wild reel for the current spin.
The Battalion Spins Feature
Hitting a total of nine scatters, which can be a combination of a Mega Symbol with standard scatters, will trigger initially seven free spins. They can be retriggered indefinitely. At the start of the feature, one symbol will be randomly selected to become the Metal Stacks and Mystery Symbol, while the three centre reels turn into Chained Reels for the duration of the free spins.
And there is one more kicker that can make a big difference to your total winnings in the free spins. Any three to eight scatters landing on a spin, which is not enough for a retrigger, will transform into the selected mystery symbol.
We expected an intense game ever since it was announced at the ICE 2019. And that is exactly what Play’n GO has delivered with the Sabaton slot. Highly volatile, loud and full of surprising twists and features. Just right for your next slotting session.
