Some of us like to take things easy when we’re playing slots and others want to try and ramp up the intensity, but few could’ve imagined they’d ever have stumbled across a product quite like the Testament slot game by Play ‘n GO.
Based on the American thrash metal band, Testament takes on an entirely new sub-genre within its own right – and we’re here to see what the end result turns out to be.
The crazy Testament slot game opens up with a standard 5×3 reel layout, but it explodes into life with a potential 243 ways to win – which could actually go up to 2,400 ways to win courtesy of sticky wilds and spreading wilds.
In addition to the standard playcards we will also get a chance to see themed and creepy symbols such as shields, skeletons, werewolves, vampires and skulls.
The return to player (RTP) percentage plays a key role in many slots and will likely do so again for the Testament slot game with the reported RTP coming in at 96.20%. That’s viewed as slightly below the industry average, but with high volatility, there’s every chance you could leave this mad experience of a game with some serious cash in your back pocket.
You can get started on this journey with a low minimum stake of $/€/£0.10, and if you’re feeling lucky, you could put down a maximum stake of $/€/£100. From there it really is anyone’s ball game with potential winnings of, wait for it, up to 20,000x your initial stake.
Based in a gothic-style church, everything we see from this slot in terms of the design work is glorious. The symbols are slick, the animation has been done really well and the gameplay is as smooth and effective as can be.
The thrash metal demon symbol is the wild with the scatter being the Dark Roots of Earth album cover. If you land two or more scatters, you’ll be able to unlock one of the following Song features.
Cold Embrace – any wilds that pop up turn into sticky wilds.
Dark Roots of Earth – the skull symbol (which can turn into a wild) spreads up and down the board to provide more wilds.
Throne of Thorns – the grid expands to a 4-5-6-5-4 layout which ups the stakes to a possible 2,400 ways to win.
The Rise Up Spins feature will be triggered by landing between 3-5 scatters with nine spaces at the top of the grid being blocks off. Then, when a scatter lands, one of those ‘stone blocks’ will be smashed – and if you smash all nine, you’ll move on to the Testament Spins feature where you will receive three free spins.
It’s difficult to label any slot as perfect, but the Testament slot game comes pretty close. The attention to detail in association with the band’s image is remarkable, the bonus features are in-depth and fun, and you could win some serious cash which will draw in both beginners and high rollers alike.
In short, it’s an absolute triumph.
