It seems these days that every week we get a new video slot based on a crummy metal band. I don't know if companies have analytics that fans of these bands play more slots or something, but recently it seems like I've played more games based on bands that I've never heard of than anything other than Egypt slots. Play'n Go's Testament slot is based on the American metal band of the same name, giving us a dark and evil style affair that's complimented by this band's music.
Formed in California in 1983, Testament is known for playing heavy metal, touring around the globe, and putting out cheesy artwork for their albums. The band has charted better in Europe than the States, which is probably the reason why Play'n Go decided to develop a game based on the band even though their games can't be played by Americans.
This slot is a 5 reel, 243 ways to win video slot set in an old abandoned church and features demonic style icons as well as "edgy" standard slot icons. The game's icons include 10, Jack, Queen, King, Ace, sword and shield, skull king on throne, green dragon, purple vampire, red goat horned skull, and yellow demon with Gene Simmons sized tongue.
The features in Testament include wild symbols, scatters, free spins, a Song Feature, spreading wilds, frozen wilds, and expanding reels. There's also a feature that sees the reels expand to resemble some sort of castle or throne, which gives you more chances to win with the reels paying up to 2400 different ways.
This slot's design and features give it a default return to player percentage (RTP) of 96.2%, which is right on what we typically see for a Play'n Go slot. As with all other Play'n Go slots, this game has multiple configurations for RTP that casinos can choose to implement, which go as low as complete rip-off territory of 84.2%.
Testament can be played on desktop and mobile devices, and it looks good on both. This is a game that's designed for fans of the band, and if you are, I recommend you give it a go.
When this game was first released, I wasn't too keen on it. However I had a decent session with it, managed to get both of the bonus features and advance to the "best" free spins feature and had a win over 140x bet so not bad. The base game pays low but overall seems to be an enjoyable game- design though isn't really for me.
Still waiting until this slot will show me some love. At first i didnt like Sabatan and later it started to give me some money. Hopefully one day Testament will break the ice. But until now I am just loosing money on it.
