There are plenty of extras to get stuck into here including chained reels, stacked and colossal symbols and a free spins round with even more extras. Play this super high variance game on your PC, tablet or mobile device from between 10p and £100 per spin.
The band take their name from a piece of armour worn by medieval knights and there’s a military feel to the imagery here. The setting is a concert stage flanked my guns and heavy artillery. On the reels you’ll see symbols featuring metal face masks, a pilot’s helmet, swords and a hand grenade. More rewarding are the 4 members of the band. The best of these awards up to 10 times your bet per payline.
Sabaton lead singer Joakim is the game’s wild. He substitutes for all of the standard symbols as well as offering awards of 10, 15 or 100 times your bet if you land 3, 4 or 5 in combination. There are plenty of bonus features on offer in Sabaton.
- Metal Stacks and Mystery Symbols feature – 1 symbol is chosen to be the special stacked and mystery symbol. These can strike at random on any spin. If you get up to 8 scatters, this is triggered with 1 symbol chosen to replace the scatter.
- Chained Reels feature – these too can trigger on any spin. 2 or 3 reels will combine with matching symbols appearing on each of them.
- Last Stand feature – when this is active, 1 or 2 reels will be filled with wilds.
Sabaton is all about the Battalion Spins feature – this is triggered by landing 9 scatters on the same spin. That’s not quite as tricky as it sounds as there are 3×3 Mega Scatters spinning around the reels. Your reward is 7 free spins. Throughout the Battalion Spins, 1 symbol will be the special Metal Stack and Mystery symbol. The Chained Reels are in play throughout with the middle 3 reels featuring matching symbols. All of the higher paying band members appears as Mega Symbols during the free spins too. A re-trigger results in another 7 free spins.
Sabaton aren’t at the top of our Spotify playlist. Even if, like us, you’re not usually a fan, there’s enough on offer from the features here to make this video slot version a game to consider. There’s a good range of extras that serve up plenty of action. That’s especially true if you like volatile action. Like many Play ’N Go games this scores 10/10 on the variance front.
With wins of up to 5,000 times your bet on offer, Sabaton is worth a spin – even if you’re not a metal head. It might be worth muting the backing track! If you like the theme, NetEnt’s Motörhead should be played.
