Saxon releases video slot for Metalheads and High Rollers

Play’n Go’s latest metal slot features iconic English heavy metal band Saxon

We’ve seen some real bangers already come from Play’n Go’s metal series: Testament, Sabaton, Twisted Sister and more… and now Saxon is the latest slot to hit the stage. Based on the English heavy metal band from the late ‘70s, Saxon is packed with attitude and sure to make some noise. It’s not actually as feature-heavy as the previous rock slots we’ve seen from Play’n Go, but its simplicity and attention to detail are what makes it a success. 

High volatility and a generous RTP of 96.24% also make this game rock hard, and it’s also hard to forget about the epic soundtrack that plays in the background as you shred. Have a read below of how the game works and why you should take it for a spin yourself. 

 

Heavy Metal Thunder

The Saxon slot has definitely been made with the fans in mind, and actually the classic design and feel fits in nicely with the theme of a classic band. The game almost looks like it’s been around for years, and definitely has that old-school feel to it… but since the band literally has been around for years, it works in nicely. As you spin, you’ll see symbols of a leather jacket, motorcycle, eagle and more, along with frontman Biff Byford (who actually makes up one of the features - but more on that later). Like the other rock slots, there’s a killer soundtrack as you shred, and you can even select from different iconic tunes from the band to listen to as you play. 

 

Wheels of Steel 

Saxon may not be packed with features, but it definitely has plenty of thrills to offer in its own way. The first feature you might encounter is that of the stacked reels, which can hit pretty frequently in the base game. Basically, any symbol except for the two scatters, can land stacked over an entire reel - and each time this happens, a multiplier value will increase by 1x. If the wild symbol happens to land stacked, the multiplier increases by 2x, making the base game much more exciting than first appears.

The free spins round is triggered by landing a motorcycle scatter and a Biff Byford scatter at the same time. Here, you’ll be awarded anywhere between five to 15 free spins, with the chance to retrigger the round indefinitely. The cool thing about the free spins round is that if it was triggered while a multiplier was still in play from the base game, the multiplier carries over to the free spins round, giving you the chance to win even more. You can actually win up to 10,000x your stake in this game, making it one for thrillseekers. 

 

Verdict

Just like the band it’s based on, the Saxon slot is set to be an icon in its own way. Though it may not be packed so heavily with features as the other Play’n Go rock slots, it still offers plenty of thrills and prizes to be won. We thoroughly enjoyed the attention to detail with the theme, and the fact that the graphics take us back to Saxon in their heyday. If you’re a fan of the band, you’re going to love this game, and we definitely recommend taking it for a whirl.
