Read on to learn more about Sabaton, its design, symbols and features, as well as how each of these can affect your gameplay.
Symbols and layout
This game is all about the massive themes that Sabaton the band sings about – battles, heroes, weapons and warfare. In the background, we can see a huge army tank behind the reels and the symbols are made up of an arsenal of weapons including swords, shields and grenades, which make up the low value part of the paytable.
The members of the band make up the high value range of symbols. Joakim, the lead singer of Sabaton, acts as the Wild, which is also the most valuable of all the character symbols and awards 100 times the stake when 5 appear in a winning combination.
The Wild can replace any of the other symbols, except for the Scatter, which takes the shape of the band’s logo.
There are several features that can be triggered in Sabaton. Band member character symbols can appear as Mega Symbols, which occupy 3×3 sections on the reels.
The Metal Stacks feature is triggered randomly and it drops stacks of identical symbols onto the reels.
The Mystery Symbol transforms into a random symbol. During the base game, landing 3 or more Scatters can trigger this feature to convert all of the Scatter symbols into another symbol.
Another random feature on Sabaton is the Chained Reels feature. On any spin in the base game, this can be activated on reels 2 to 4, where two reels are selected. On these two reels, the same symbols will be shown, thus improving the chance of landing a winning combination.
Finally, the Last Stand feature can randomly select either one or two reels and turn them completely Wild.
Sabaton Free Spins
In this game, the free spins feature is called Battalion Spins, in keeping with the war-like theme. It is activated when 9 Scatter symbols land during the same spin, awarding the player 7 free spins. Before the spins start, one symbol is randomly selected to become the Mystery Symbol.
The Metal Stacks and Chained reels features remains active throughout the free spins. Additional free spins can be activated during the feature itself.
