Free Sabaton slot
Please be patient, some games take longer to load than others!
Sabaton slot by Play'n Go brings us into the world of heavy metal and big guns as this Swedish developer delves into the world of their fellow countrymen Sabaton's thrash music. It isn't Play'n Go's first foray into the world of heavy metal as they already have House of Doom with the soundtrack provided by the band Candlemass and there's Leander's Megadeth or Netent's Motorhead to name a couple more. Here we have what appears to be a battleship background with big guns and of course the telling chords of the guitars combined with clangs of the symbols as we spin. So can Sabaton strike up a good riff with our bankroll, or will we be left without any notes here?
On The Reels...
Sabaton slot brings us 10 fixed paying lines with stacked symbols and Wilds with 5-of-a-kind pays of 10x bet for the Blue Guitarist, 7.5X for the Purple and Orange Guitarists and Red Drummer, 4x Mask or Bullets, 2.5X for the Knives or Grenade. Wilds will pay 100x bet for a full line and there's some help with this as the game is packed with modifiers which also include scatters.
The Band's Logo appears scattered on all reels and stacked. Now usually these symbols will simply reveal a mystery icon when they appear, but your second modifier is the Chained Reels where two or more reels will clone, like in Netent's Twin Spin and if there is a 3-reel clone and the stacked scatters land in a 3x3 block you are granted 7 free games but that's further on. For now there's a third and final modifier, the Last Stand whereby 1 or 2 reels will turn Wild for that spin which helps when the Metal Stacks land nicely for you - those are the premium symbols of which one appears super stacked most spins.
When you've landed the block 3x3 scatter during the Chained Reels feature, you get awarded 7 free games which can and do regularly retrigger in the same way. That's because in the free games your Chained Reels and Last Stand features above are far more frequent and in addition to those you can get Mega Symbols of the 4 highest pays i.e. the musicians anything from 2x2 right up to full-screen size of 5x3! This feature is often very entertaining as retriggers seem to be reasonably frequent and Play'n Go tell us we can accrue up to 5,000x bet during the Battalion Spins.
Sabaton slot will no doubt appeal to the metal fans out there but even if it's not your type of theme or music, the game isn't bad at all with plenty of action between the free games bonuses and the chance of 1000x bet on a single free spin too. The Chained Reels are very frequent, far more so than the Last Stand Wild reels modifier and tiny wins are rare as most winning spins pay something worthwhile. The RTP is factory set at 96.34% although operators can lower this, so always check game rules on Play'n Go slots! Graphics and animations have had not a little effort put into them as you'd expect on a licensed theme so overall it seems a decent game. It certainly struck a chord with me...
