Play ‘N Go’s Testament Slot Review

Testament: Demo

Taking inspiration from an American thrash metal band, Testament is a 5 reel, 243 ways to win slot from Play ’N Go. Boasting suitably dark visuals and a loud, metal soundtrack, look out for special skull symbols that can transform into wilds and a trio of features that offer an assortment of free spins and other goodies. Play this extremely high variance slot on all devices from between 10p and £100 per spin.

Dark design

Based on a 2012 album Dark Roots of Earth, the reels are full of images you might find on a metal fan’s grungy black t-shirt. They include vampires, werewolves, skeletons and shields. The most rewarding standard symbol is the skull which delivers payouts of 2.5, 5 or 12.5x your total bet if you land 3, 4 or 5 in combination on adjacent reels. There’s also a wild that pays 15x if you land a 5-symbol combo.

Skull Upgrades

On any base game spin, you could benefit from a random symbol upgrade. This transforms the skull symbol into a wild. During the bonus features (more info below), the skull always upgrades into a wild. There are 5 bonus rounds on offer here.

3 x Song features

Land 2 scatters on the same spin and you’ll receive 3 free spins complete with one of the extras below:

  • Cold Embrace feature – any wild that lands turns sticky and remains in place for your remaining free spins.
  • Dark Roots of Earth feature – any Skull symbol that lands will expands to fill the whole reel.
  • Throne of Thorns feature – the reels expand to offer 2,400 ways to win rather than the standard 243.

Rise Up Spins

You’ll need to find 3 or more scatters on the same spin to trigger the Rise Up Spins feature (you’ll also get a 4x or 20x bet payday if you trigger with 4 or 5 scatters). On offer here are 9 free spins on an expanded set of 4x5x6x5x4 reels.

At the start of the round 9 positions are blocked. Land a scatter during these free spins and a blocked position opens to boost the number of active payways.  Unlock all 9 locked positions and you’ll progress to the Testament Spins feature.

Testament Spins

Any Rise Spins you have left are carried over and an extra 3 free spins are added. On each of them, all the modifiers from the Song features are active so expect to see sticky and expanding wilds on an expanded machine (with 2,400 payways or ways to win).

20,000 x bet payouts

We’d never heard of Testament and listening to the soundtrack here we won’t be rushing to explore the band’s back catalogue on Spotify. Even if you’re not a metal fan, the features here make this worth a look. Be warned though, this is an extremely volatile slot.

Saying that, you can win up to 20,000 x bet in total – this is the highest win possible on any Play ‘n GO slot to date. Whilst the theme won’t be to all tastes, the gameplay and potential big wins is more than enough to warrant some spins. If you can’t get enough of the mosh pit, then jump on in.  Play ‘n GO has released quite a few music inspired slots – Sabaton is the pick of the bunch.
