Based around the Swedish power metal band, this Sabaton mobile slot is for fans of heroic spins that can feel like you’re in the middle of the biggest battle of your life.
Someone at Play’n GO studio is a real metalhead because this is their second hardcore music slot game. The difference is that while the House of Doom slot had a more generic supernatural feel, this Sabaton slot is far more faithful to the Sabaton band.
Each of the band members is represented as high paying symbols, and the low paying symbols fit the iconography they are so famous for, namely the glory of war.
Guns, tanks, artillery, grenades and explosive imagery throughout, if you’re not a fan of war and violence this is NOT for you. Maybe try the Gemix slot instead.
When it comes to combining slot features together, Play’n GO are one of the best. And this Sabaton slot does this better than most having three features that pop up often during the base game:
These can all happen at once, and if you can imagine it, it’s glorious to see… when it happens, which, granted is rare to see all three at once in the base game.
But not during the free spin bonus games, where you can get up to 4 linked reels on each spin and richer bonus filled reels. It’s as dramatic and epic as you’d imagine from an Android and iPhone slot named after a metal band.
Ok, the reason is quite simple. We are not fans of either Sabaton, metal music or war. And call us sensitive, but the glorification of war makes us a little uncomfortable.
Yes, it’s a personal opinion, but that’s all slot reviews are, personal opinions about games. The music wasn’t that bad to be honest, but it certainly didn’t get us shaking our heads like the Guns n Roses slot.
That said, it’s not just the theme, but the fact this is a very volatile game. Which means that, yes, you can get 5,000 times your bet max win, but getting there feels like you have to walk through no mans land to get it.
Not for the faint of heart, but if this is your poison, drink up, add a star to this Sabaton slot review, and get spinning at any good Play’n GO casino like Casumo.

Wilds: The Lead singer of the band is the wild symbol and can be used to replace any other symbol to create wins.
Metal Stacks and Mystery Symbol: On each spin in the base game, one game symbol (excluding the Scatter) is randomly chosen, to have a stack on the reel strip. These also come as mystery symbols, turning into any other symbol already on the board.
Chained Reels: Any 2 or 3 reels may be randomly chosen to link together showing the exact same symbols on those reels (including, sometimes, one mega symbol).
Last Stand: Any 1 or 2 reels may randomly turn wild.
Battalion Free Spins: If you land 9 scatter symbols across the reels, you will be awarded 7 free spins. One of the symbols (not the scatter) will then also be chosen to come stacked during the bonus games.
Better yet, 2 to 4 reels are always linked and spin with the same symbols. Any High Paying symbol or the wild will also appear as a Mega Symbol. You also trigger the Last Stand and Metal Stacks more often.
If you love the Swedish power metal band, then you have to play this Sabaton video slot on mobile. The theme is true to the band, the music is epic and the mechanics are great fun.
For anyone not familiar with the band, or a fan of war, metal rock, and headbanging... maybe try the poppy Jamboree Jubilee slot instead? We guess?
Honestly, we fall somewhere in the middle with this one. We had lots of fun enjoying the different game mechanics, but much like the music and the theme, this is all hardcore all the way. It's a risky real money slot that may leave you feeling like you are actually going to war, and not always in a good 'glory upon us' kind of way.
In short, you need big brass balls and a love of guns to appreciate this Sabaton slot.
If the war imagery gets to you, then perhaps the House of Doom game, with a far more Satanic theme... no wait... hum...
Book of Dead slot? Yeah. Play that. Ancient Egyptian curses never did anyone any harm, right?
