he slot is a tribute to the carefree, freewheeling days of the eighties set to the soundtrack of one of British heavy metal’s most influential bands, Saxon, with players able to pick from several of their songs to listen to while playing. One of the era’s biggest European acts, their legacy has influenced several bands over the years, including top acts like Metallica and Megadeth.
Similar to some of their earlier 2020 releases, most notably Annihilator, Saxon also brings a high level of animation into play as part of the game’s entertainment.
The free spins feature of the slot is activated by landing the game’s two Scatter’s on the reels; one is a classic motorcycle, and the other is Saxon lead singer Biffy Byford. Once both land on the reels, they come together in a fun animation to kick off the feature.
The feature also houses Saxon’s main draw, which is the unlimited multiplier feature, whereby multipliers will continue to climb for as long as the feature lasts, with no maximum.
Play’n GO Chief Product Officer, Martin Zettergren spoke about the game and its appeal: “The 80s were a time of fun and freedom, that’s reflected in the music of the time. We’ve brought that feeling into the Saxon slot. It’s a simple, fun game and the free spins give players so much potential it will appeal to new and seasoned players alike.”
