Play’n Go clearly has a passion for rock and metal. The Swedish-based development studio is also keen to show off the music of its compatriots. Sabaton is a prime example. It’s a slot based on the band of the same name, one that formed in Falun, Sweden, back in 1999.

Considered to be one of the “big four” power metal bands (with the others including DragonForce, Helloween, and Blind Guardian), Sabaton swaps the usual fantasy themes for a militaristic style, with plenty of tanks, guns, and swords, all of which are on show in the Sabaton slot.

Sabaton Game Features

The Sabaton slot has 10 fixed paylines across its 5 reels. Its symbols depict members of the band, as well as military icons and images taken from the band’s artwork and videos. The Wild is the biggest symbol, awarding a 1,000x payout for 5 on a payline and also substituting for all other main game symbols.

The Wild depicts the lead singer, Joakim “Jocke” Brodén, with the word “Wild”, so you can’t miss it. The four other band members serve as the main game symbols—each of them striking a pose with their instruments, and each of them backed by a uniquely colored border.

There are no standard playing card icons here. Instead, the lower-paying icons consist of a Spartan Helmet, Air Force Helmet, Sword and Shield Crest, and a Grenade. It pays homage to the military style of the band and ensures there are no filler symbols spoiling the aesthetic.

There are a few features to look out for in this one. First, you have the Chained Reels, which can activate at random during any non-winning spin. It works by “chaining” two or three reels together. These reels synchronize to display the same symbols and could lead to big payouts if those chains complete winning paylines.

Last Stand is also randomly activated. It chooses one or two reels at random and turns them into Wild Reels. It’s similar to the Metal Stacks feature, which chooses a feature at random and then stacks it on the reels. And then you have the Mega Symbols, whereby all of the band members can appear as giant symbols to fill multiple spaces.

If that’s not enough to pique your interest, Sabaton comes with a Free Spins bonus. Look out for the Scatter, depicted by the “S” logo. It comes as a standard Scatter and a Mega Scatter and leads to the Battalion Spins feature.

Battalion Spins is the main act and the encore rolled into one. This monstrous feature awards 7 Free Spins, and as all of the three middle reels are linked, you essentially have a giant symbol in the middle. It can also be re-triggered an unlimited number of times, with 9 more spins added to the total each time.

The game’s maximum payout of 5,000x is available during the Battalion Spins.
