Music’s most influential thrash metal bands join the world of casino with this Testament slot game that is all about the music, and about having a wild time.
Wait! Don’t Leave! Maybe you’re not a metalhead, and that’s ok. Neither are we. And yet here we are giving one of Play’n GO’s heavy metal music games a 4-star slot review, so hear us out.
Yes, this won’t change your mind about the band or the type of music. But maybe, just maybe, you can appreciate a unique style and sound that is hard to find in any other casino slots out there.
From the scatter symbol taking the form of the critically acclaimed album Dark Roots of Earth cover image, to skulls, vampire, werewolf, skeleton and shields making up the rest of the high paying symbols. Really, if you think about it, this is just a fantasy theme – not unlike the Tower Quest slot or Vikings Go To Hell by Yggdrasil Gaming.
Testament is a 5×3 reel 243 ways to win slot to start with. As you play, three of the most famous songs by the band will play. This is important because if you get 2 scatters, whatever song is playing will trigger one of the features.
Cold Embrace gives you 3 spins with sticky wilds, Dark Roots of Earth gives you 3 spins with wilds that spread up or down the reel, whilst Throne of Thorns will expand the reels to 2,400 ways to win.
Of course, we all know where those big wins are hiding, but you know what? We’ve been lucky (and unlucky) in all three features. It’s fun, and helped by the fact that the high paying symbol randomly turns wild – so it’s not a separate symbol at all, but a two for one deal.
Get 3 scatters, of course, and then you hit 9 free spins where you can progressively expand the reels and eventually trigger the Testament Spins: you’ll get spreading sticky wild symbols on 3 spins of the reel with all ways open.
It’s glorious to watch, but also gloriously hard to catch.
If you’ve ever been into a mosh pit you know that’s where the hardcore fans will be, and they are MAD. They’ll admit it, as will show off each and every bruise and cut created whilst throwing themselves into the pit.
So if you want to play on this Testament slot machine, you need to inherently accept a little bit of that madness, and perhaps, accept that you might end up bruised and battered… but probably still well entertained.
Testament is a very volatile game with a top win of 20,000 your bet, no multipliers and a low minimum bet of 0.10 a spin. That means it pay big, the payable and features does all the work, and you don’t need to pay a lot to try it.
But it does mean it won’t make it easy for you to open up those reels and go totally wild. If this sounds a little too hardcore for you, maybe time to read another Play’n GO music slot review – the Black Mamba slot anyone?
Or perhaps look at our Play’n GO slots list.

Wild: The high paying skull symbol can, sometimes, turn itself into thrash metal Demon and substitute for all payable symbols - except the scatter. It can be used in multiple ways to win. During the special features (any of the ones below) the skull will ALWAYS turn wild.
Song Features: If you find two scatters (the screaming blue demon), whatever song is playing on the background at the time will activate one of three possible features. You'll get 3 free spins with the following features:
Rise Up Free Spins: If you get 3 to 5 scatter you'll get 9 free spins. The reels will expand to 4-5-6-5-4, but the 9 spaces on the top of the grid are blocked off with stones. Each time a scatter lands on the reels, it will smash a stone blocker, expanding the reel by one space. If you get rid of all nine stone blockers you will open up a 2,400 ways to win slot and activate the Testament Spins.
Testament Spins: You trigger these through the Rise Up Free spins. You'll get 3 free spins where all the combined power of the song features will activate - namely 2,400 ways to win with sticky wilds that spread up or down by one each time.
We will admit that our knowledge of thrash metal is a little minimal, and if you're not into the iconography or the music, this won't have you jumping for joy.
But, if you can appreciate a fantasy-themed slot, or just love the music and sounds, this is a brilliant game that uses music and features beautifully to create something a little bit special.
This Testament mobile slot looks good, in that satanic vampiric kind of way, and having 3 features that all merge together beautifully in the free spins is the cherry on top. But beware as this volatile game can easily send your emotions straight to hell and back again, in a flash.
This sits nicely on the same playlist as the Demon slot and House of Doom, both by Play'n GO.
