In recent years its become a fashionable thing for online casino software developers to design games around European bands that the rest of the world has never heard of. This is the case with the Sabaton slot from Play'n Go, as it follows the Swedish heavy metal band of the same name. The band was formed in 1999 and it focuses on violence and war, and the slot follows suit.
The game is a 5 reel, 10 payline video slot set in front of some epic battle machine that's got a bunch of different guns, cannons, and rocket launchers. The game's icons are a combination of battle symbols as well as band members. The icons include bullets and helmets, a spartan helmet, a grenade, swords, the band's symbol, the guitarist, bass player, and drummer. The icons are pretty cool looking, and I'm thankful that I didn't see any of the boring 10-J-Q-K-A slot symbols that are present in nearly every other game.
Features in Sabaton include free spins, linked reels, stacked symbols, stacked wilds, and wild reels. The free spins round is set off when nine or more scatters are unveiled on the reels, which sounds like a lot but there is a massive 3x3 stacked scatter on the reels to help. The game's mega symbols are awesome for generating big wins, as are the Last Stand and Chained Reels features. The game did generate some big wins for me, and I was even "treated" to the group's music.
Sabaton can be played on desktop and mobile mode, so you can get access to it from wherever you can snag a data connection. While it's not one that I can say is out of this world, it will definitely be enjoyed by those who love the band.
