Testament: Slot Overview

Play’n GO, one of the most productive developers of the year so far, manages to keep up a constant stream of slots. Most have been comfortably above average, offering high volatility and high rewards. With that said, they often do have a certain sameness to them. With Testament, they have broken the habit and really thrown down the gauntlet. Testament is the latest addition to Play’n GO’s metal series of slots and the loudest one so far. As well as basing their new slot on one of the harder thrash metal bands, they've also decided to really bring it by creating their highest potential slot to date. The final product is a lot more in your face than Play’n GO's recent releases and just what the developer needed.


A quick word on the band Testament. They might not be a household name, but they've been firing out albums since the early 80s. Any band to last that long has certainly struck a nerve with enough fans to keep them going through the years. With track titles such as Souls of Black and Into the Pit, easy listening this ain't. For a more mainstream comparison, Metallica's Master of Puppets album has the similar relentless riffs, drumming, and darker vibe you can expect. If that's not your aural cup of tea you might want to hit mute, because Testament’s Dark Roots of Earth album makes an ear scorching appearance on the soundtrack.

The band's artwork and imagery also feature heavily in the game which sets an apocalyptic metal tone. The game is set in what looks like the Red Keep's Great Hall from Game of Thrones and initially uses a default 5x3, 243 win ways set up. This expands during features which we will look at in a moment. The first thing to do is set a bet level which starts at 10 p/c and goes as high as £/€100 per spin. The game has a default RTP rating of 96.2%, but can be dialed down by providers due to the flexible RTP option on offer from Play'n GO so keep an eye on that. Big rewards come with a big volatility which Play’n GO has rated at 10/10, or 'Very High' which it kind of had to be given due to the hardcore theme.


The paytable, meanwhile, has an intensity that will be a little hard to convey in words. Well, royals are easy, and the J-A symbols use the band logo's font which is a nice touch. The 5 premiums include swords and shields, a hard man on a throne, a werewolf, a vampire, and a horned skull. Not a comedy then. The skull is the most valuable symbol, and a line of 5 is worth 12.5 times the stake. It can also turn wild on any base game spin, and will always turn wild on every bonus game spin. The wild is worth a little more at 15 times the stake for five of a kind and can substitute any symbol except the scatter.


Testament: Slot Features

The Testament slot benefits from 3 song features where you’ll receive free spins with sticky wilds, spreading wilds or more ways to win. There’s also a Rise Up Spins feature where you’ll play free spins with 2,400 ways to win. In the Testament Spins feature where all song features combine to devastating effect.


Song features
Testament comes with quite a few bonus features – the key to unlocking them is the scatter which is the Dark Roots of Earth album cover image. If you get 2 on a single base game spin, you will get 3 free spins with 1 of the following Song features taking place:

Cold Embrace feature – any wilds that appear on the reels are sticky for the duration of the 3 free spins
Dark Roots of Earth feature – the skull symbol spreads up or down to give you more wilds on the reels
Throne of Thorns feature – the grid expands in size to 4x5x6x5x4 meaning that you’ll play with 2,400 ways to win which increases your chances of winning more.



Rise Up Spins feature
If you manage to land 3, 4 or 5 scatters on a base game spin, you’ll trigger the Rise Up Spins feature – 4 or 5 scatters will also give you a 5 or 20 times stake bonus. You get 9 free spins with the reels expanding to give you 2,400 ways to win.

9 spaces at the top of the grid are blocked off with stone blockers though. When a scatter symbol lands, it smashes a stone blocker which expands the reel by 1 space. If you smash all 9 stone blockers, you will go on to play the Testament Spins feature.



Testament Spins feature
Once in the Testament Spins feature, you will be rewarded with 3 free spins as well as any remaining Rise Up spins you have remaining. In this feature, all Song features combine which means wilds become sticky and also spread.



Testament: Slot Verdict
It's great to see Play’n GO disengage cruise control and put their foot on the gas. Testament is the big, ballsy, in your face slot that they have been overdue for, and is a welcome shot in the arm. Play’n GO is a company that has honed its craft to the point where they can coast effortlessly while producing decent slots. Slots that tick all the right boxes in the looks, gameplay, and rewards department, yet often ultimately fail to make a long lasting impression or many waves. Testament wipes the slate clean and is just the right slot to shake that all up. It both ups their game, and reminds players that Play’n GO still can make a big impact.


They’ve done this by cranking up nearly every element of Testament. The showpiece is, of course, the Testament Free Spins. If you can make it that far then expect solid rewards for your effort. On the subject of potential, we are talking about the highest returns possible with a Play’n GO slot at up to 20,000 times the stake which is much higher than the usual 5,000x we are used to.


The developers have gone large with just about every aspect of Testament. It easily out rocks the previous slots in the metal series Demon, House of Doom, Black Mamba, Sabaton, and even its successor Annihilator. The Testament slot makes them look like the local opening bands at a major international gig. To sum up, Testament takes the metal series, relaxes the win caps, and turns the attitude, features, and potential up to 11. Even players who have never heard of Testament the band, or appreciate thrash metal in general, will still get a kick out of that. Maybe just turn the volume down a couple of notches in that case.
