Sabaton Slot Review
Sabaton are the latest heavy metal band to lend themselves to a slot game. Whilst they may not be as well known as Kiss, Motorhead or Guns N Roses, Sabaton are described as "a Swedish power metal band". Their music focuses on war, historical battles, and acts of heroism and their next album is based on World War I. Does this all transfer to an exciting slot game?
Sabaton is a 5 reel, 10 payline slot from Play N Go. The reels are set on an array of tanks and features music from the band. The band also feature on the reels and make up the the higher paying symbols. These are joined by swords, shields and grenades as well as wilds. The wilds are the highest paying symbol and offers a x200 reward for five of a kind on a win line.
Wagering on Sabaton starts at just 10p a spin but this can be adjusted upwards to a maximum of £100. The orange arrow button to the far right of the slot offers Autoplay features including stopping autoplay on any win. Players can also set the amount of wins/losses to stop autoplay as well as stopping them if the free spins bonus round is activated.
Play N Go have included a number of features within Sabaton. These include Chained Reels, a randomly activated feature where between 2 and 3 adjacent reels synchronise to show the same symbols. Similarly Last Stand also activates randomly during the base game. In Last Stand 1 or 2 reels are chosen at random to become wilds.
Get 9 or more scatter symbols to activate Battalion Spins. This feature offers 7 spins initially and reels 2, 3 and 4 are linked. The free spins can be re-triggered and it's feasible up to x5000 your wager. At other times the scatter symbols also change to a random symbol to hopefully create win lines.
If all this wasn't enough there are Mega Symbols. This applies to all the band members who can show off their skills by being shown as a mega symbol. These can land on any reel during the base game. In short, Sabaton is loaded with features - all of which are accompanied with appropriate metal music and sounds.
You don't need to have heard of Sabaton to enjoy this slot. It's stylish and a nice antidote to the more cartoon orientated games. The graphics are good and the music decent especially if you're into heavy metal. The Return To Player is 96.5% which places it in medium variance.
Sabaton may well be aimed at the Swedish market - after all online slots and casino are growing in the Scandanavian countries. However, UK players, especially those who enjoy Motorhead, Guns N Roses etc will enjoy the experience. We'd have loved an option to switch the tracks - or even know what track was playing. Sabaton is available at Casumo and can be played on mobile, desktop and tablet. A demo mode option is also available.
