Saxon (Play’n GO) slot review
Get your rock on with Play’n GO’s Saxon slot
The theme appeals to many players, and they, too, need to be catered for. The English band Saxon got the honours this time.
Although Saxon has enjoyed quite some success in the ’80s, it’s not the most famous hard rock band. It suits Play’n GO best, as it keeps the licensing costs within limits.
Saxon’s lead vocalist is Biff Byford, and you can best describe him as a Gérard Depardieu look-alike (big nose), but with a long white wig.
You can bag a blistering 10,000x the stake on Saxon
And that’s twice the maximum win of most Play’n GO slots (such as Book of Dead). I guess it’s only appropriate for a slot with such a boisterous theme!

Saxon slot – Gameplay and Features
Saxon has 5 reels with 3 rows of symbols and 10 fixed paylines.
The high-paying symbols are a leather jacket, a raptor logo and an emblem with a cross. Five leather jackets on a payline yield 30x.
The low-paying symbols are the stars, spades, hearts, diamonds and clubs.
You recognize the Wild symbol, by a sword with the red Saxon logo and the red letters WILD. It’s fully stacked and covers a full reel.
Five wilds get you a win of 50x.
Last but not least, we have Bonus Symbols of the lead singer Biff Byford and a powerful Motorcycle (must be a Harley).
The win multiplier
Above the reels, you see the Saxon logo, and on the right of the logo, you see the Win Multiplier.
The Win Multiplier increases by +1 if you spin three identical symbols on a reel. But if you spin a Wild (which is fully stacked anyway), the multiplier increases by +2.
It means that if you spin 5 Wilds, you do not add 50x to your balance but a fantastic 550x the bet. In one go. How nice is that!
But your balance can go up, even more, thanks to the free spins.
Free spins – the win multiplier keeps on increasing
You activate the free spins when you spin the Bonus symbols Biff Byford and the Motorcycle at the same time. It gets you (determined randomly) between 5 and 15 free spins.
Now, let the rock music begin!
First, you get to carry the win multiplier from the main game to the free spins. The multiplier continues to increase, as long as you keep spinning stacked reels of symbols or wilds. And the multiplier does not reset during the free spins.
There are no further restrictions. Just continue spinning stacked wilds, and you’ll find out that your win can be MASSIVE!
By the way, if you manage to spin Bill Byford and his Motorcycle, during the free spins, you get another 5 to 15 free spins. And that multiplier continues to increase!
Payout Rate (RTP)
Saxon’s default RTP is 96.24%. However, there are versions with a lower RTP in circulation. It’s best to scan Saxon’s game rules for the RTP and make sure you have the right version.
The variance of Saxon is high
Play’n GO gives a score of 8 out of 10 for the variance. In other words, the variance is high but not very high or extremely high.
I expect the top wins to be around 1,000x the bet. It’s massive, but not as insane as in the more volatile and brutal slots as Demon, Black Mamba and particularly Testament.
Pros and Cons
- We love the fact that Play’n GO keeps on releasing rocker slots. We can’t get enough of these.
- The gameplay is straightforward, but certainly not dull.
- Very high win potential.
- Animations and sounds are overwhelming and everything but peaceful.
So, who’ll like the slot? And who won’t?
It’s a Play’n GO slot for hard rock lovers, and it doesn’t pretend to be anything else. For this group of players, this slot is an excellent addition. And it certainly has some superb win potential.
Players who are not so fond of loud, guitar-heavy music may probably want to skip this slot.
In terms of gameplay, Saxon does not stand out too much.
