Overview

In the words of Chuck Billy, be careful what you wish for. Testament fans may have been dreaming of this slot for years, and now that it’s here…they won’t want to play anything else! It’s a hard-rocking, amp-smashing slot machine worthy of the thrash metal gods that gave us albums like The Legacy, Souls of Black, and The Gathering.

Created by Play’n Go, the Testament slot is based on the newer Dark Roots of Earth album, which was released in 2012. It adopts a 5×3 grid layout and comes with a minimum of 243 payways that can expand to 2,400.

Testament Game Features

The Testament slot holds true to the aesthetic of the band, which combines demonic imagery with a sort of grand fantasy. There’s a stone staircase in the background, monsters and gods on the reels, and copious amounts of flames and fire.

The Demon Wild is one of the key symbols here, awarding 15x for 5 on a payline and also substituting for other symbols, including the Skull, Werewolf, Vampire, Skeleton, Shield, and classic playing card symbols. The Scatter is even more powerful. It adopts the form of the beast seen on the cover art for Dark Roots of Earth and plays a very important role.

Two of these Scatter symbols award three spins and also trigger one of the following Song Feature modifiers:

Throne of Thorns:

The grid changes to alayout and the payways expand to a maximum of 2,400.

Dark Roots of Earth

The Skull symbol will move on the reels whenever they appear.

Cold Embrace:

The Wild symbols become sticky, remaining on the reveals in a “cold embrace” after they land.

 

The above is dependent on which song is playing at the time, so if you know your Testament, you’ll have a good idea of what to expect.

If between 3 and 5 Scatters appear during a base game spin, the Rise Up Spins are activated. The reels increase to 4-5-6-5-4, but the new spaces are blocked by stones. When more Scatters appear, these stone blocks are destroyed, thus expanding the reels and increasing the payways.

When all of the blocks are smashed, the Testament Spins feature unlocks. Three more spins are added to the total and all of the Song Feature modifiers activate at the same time. It means that the Skull symbols turn into Wilds, can expand up or down, and will also remain sticky on the reels. This feature is the biggest in the game and is known as Testament Spins.

Landing 4 or 5 Scatters to trigger this feature also awards an instant payout of between 4x and 20x. All of the money accumulated before and during the feature is collected and then released at the end.

Verdict: The best music slot from Play’n Go?

Testament never achieved the kind of respect and acclaim reserved for contemporaries like Metallica and Megadeth, but you’ll be hard-pressed to find a rock fan who can listen to classics like 1999’s D.N.R and not fall in love—the thudding drums, the crunching guitars, and Billy’s iconic growling vocals.

This slot is a “testament” to the brand’s quality, and it captures all of the iconic imagery and styles before combining them with the sort of classic features we’ve come to expect from Play’n Go.
