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.
At first I wasn't too keen on this game, as I'm not a fan of the band this game is inspired of, and the design seemed quite simple but not too appealing. Then I tried the game and wasn't really sold on it. The game has the linked reels and last chance features but it's nearly impossible to get over 50x bet win on base game. Although free spins have some potential, I have never had a win over 100x bet win on this game and on the average it pays 20x-40x. All in all, not a bad game but quite the average.
I even didnt know that band but I liked it:) And it is a problem because while I am listening to the music I dont notice how it is eating my balance:) Because reality is that really that game just steeling money from me. Even if I get bonus I win around 10-20 x bet.
