- ‘80’s Rock Band Branded Slot
- Win up to 10,000x your bet
- Choose your own soundtrack
Play’n GO extend their branded Rock Band slots with Saxon, based on the ‘80’s heavy metal outfit hailing from Barnsley in the north of England. As with Play’n GO’s other Rock slots, the soundtrack is a veritable feast of classic Saxon hits. This highly volatile slot is a 5x3, 10 payline affair with maximum exposure of a cool €1,000,00 (or 10,000x your bet size). Full stacks become win multipliers in this game, multipliers which can quickly add up in a fast-paced free spins round.
How to win big in Saxon – Free Spins
Land the two scatters on reels 2 and 4 to trigger between 5 and 15 free spins. During free spins, every reel which lands fully stacked with any symbol adds +1 to the win multiplier, regardless of whether it contributes to a win. A fully stack wild adds +2 to the win multiplier. The win multiplier does not reset until the end of the free spins bonus round.
- Stacked Wilds
- Stacked Reel Multipliers
Although all symbols can appear stacked on the reels, the wild symbol ALWAYS lands fully stacked on the reels. As in the free spins round, a reel landing stacked with any symbol adds +1 that game’s win multiplier. Once again, a wild landing on any spin adds +2 to that game’s win multiplier. Unlike free spins, the win multiplier resets after each spin. The one exception to this rule is on a free spin triggering spin, whereupon the triggering spin’s win multiplier (if there is one) is carried over to the free spins round.
See how a big base game win is possible when landing several stacked reels, including a wild. This €12 win is increased to €72 via win multipliers earned on this single spin.
Look and Feel of Saxon
Once again Play’n GO have done a fantastic job with the visuals. The scene depicts a bar with a motorcycle racing theme, with checkered flags hanging up behind the bar, and a 2 wheeled hog hanging above the bar. The soundtrack, a selection of Saxon’s hits, can be changed at will by pressing the music button to the bottom left of the gameboard. Press this and the full tracklisting appears, and you can choose your favourite Saxon tune.
Homage is also paid to the band via the symbols. The lows may be the standard playing card suits (plus a star), but the three highs all tip a nod to the great band. The highs are a Crusader helmet (in honour of their Crusader album), an eagle logo (which appears on many of their album covers), and a biker jacket with the bands ‘S’ logo stitched on the back. The jacket is the highest paying regular symbol, paying 30x the bet size for a full payline. The wild is the highest paying symbol of all, with a full payline awarding 50x the bet.
See below for all the symbols and their respective values (based on a €1 spin).
The two scatters are a motorbike (reel 2), and the band’s lead singer Biff Byford (reel 4). Landing the two together sends Biff out onto the open road aboard his road hog, and the free spins begin. Saxon is a relatively straightforward game with a free spin round and a multiplier feature which spans both rounds. It may be straight forward, but it is certainly not boring, rather it is a fast paced game where big wins appear in both the base game and free spins. Free spins can be especially lucrative when the multipliers add up, which they often do. However, it is comforting to know that it’s not just all about spinning for the bonus round, as big wins do occur during the base game also.
Another great release from Play’n GO with a great soundtrack, superb design, and plenty of potentials.
