Free Saxon slot
Please be patient, some games take longer to load than others!
Saxon slot by Play'n Go returns us to their favourite theme of Heavy metal music. We've seen numerous before from bands all over the world including Sabaton slot and from Sweden themselves House of Doom slot and of course bands from the UK. There was Demon slot based on that band who like Saxon were one of the 'NWOBHM' (New Wave of British Heavy Metal) bands from the late 1970's into the 1980's. Here we open to Biff Byford's vocals on the track Strangers in The Night and don't worry Saxon fans, we naturally get the most renowned of them all, the classic riff of the Wheels of Steel track! Other than that the symbols are pretty basic as is the background. So can Saxon slot add some steel to our bankroll or will it be smashed like the guitars?
On The Reels...
We get a quite a volatile game here with Saxon slot and 10 lines over 5 reels of 3 rows. The symbols appear stacked and we get a Saxon logo stacked Wild which can only appear over all 3 rows, as the top pay at 50x bet for 5-of-a-kind. After that there is the Biker Jacket at 30x, Saxon Badge 25x, Shield 20x, Star 12x with four card suits at 10 down to 7x for a full line. The mechanic is quite simple here and so there's no random modifiers.
Any wins that see a fully-stacked 3-row high symbol anywhere on the screen will be raised 1x by each full stack, in the case of the stacked Wild, 2x. This even applies if the full stack is not part of the win, say a non-matching stack on reel 5. So is it possible by this that a full screen of Wilds for 500x would be multiplied therefore by 11x? Play'n Go tell us 10,000x bet is possible so maybe, although the pays state 5x Wilds is 50x per line and they can only appear stacked anyway so may actually include any multiplier.
You need to land the Bike of reel 2 and Biff Byford on reel 4 to trigger a sequence where he rides off on the bike in a cloud of smoke and noise. You then get a counter which awards 5 to 15 free games which can be retriggered. Any multiplier on the triggering spin carries over to the spins and as you might have guessed, the multiplier raised by any stacked Wilds or other full stacks does not reset between spins. Thinking about it, this is where the 10,000x can only be possible. You can get some big wins here but trust me on this, those stacked Wilds tend to go missing in the free games!
I would be biased anyway about Saxon slot as I like the music, but it is actually a good game to play and can chuck in wins over 100x bet in the base game. The RTP is a factory 96.24% and although the graphics and animations are rather dull and basic considering the theme, I enjoyed the game. The free games aren't too hard to trigger and like I said there is the potential for huge wins but I would suggest the high volatility means these will be unusual. I say give Saxon a thrash if you want some heavy wins...
