Play’n GO is back with another music-focused branded slot title with a tribute to one of history’s most iconic rock bands. The developer’s new title is Def Leppard Hysteria, and features top tracks from the legendary ensemble’s bestselling album, Hysteria.
Rocking the Reels
The game opens with an explosion of Def Leppard’s music and an oversized 5x7 reel set. The game grid is set on a stage with oscillating concert lights and blinking neon accents in the background. The Rolling Reels mechanic causes winning clusters of symbols to vanish, letting more appear in their place.
The game’s bonus features are all linked to the band’s most famous song lyrics. The Break It Up feature is named after a lyric from Pour Some Sugar on Me and randomly shuffles the symbols on the reels on a non-winning spin. Once the symbols have been moved around, three to six wilds are added to the reels.
A symbol is selected at random on every spin for the Fire Me Up feature and If the symbol is part of a winning combination, a charge meter of the game will fills up, adding three to six wilds to the reels once it reaches capacity.
The game’s ‘headliner’ is the Pour Some Sugar on Me feature. The letters of the word SUGAR are highlighted on random reel positions one each spin and if you land a winning combination over one of these symbols, a corresponding letter will light up at the foot of the stage.
If you light up the whole word SUGAR on a single spin, you will be awarded a casino spin where four to seven multiplier wilds are added to the reels. The multiplier increases with every Rolling Reels win up to a maximum of 7x.
The developer’s Head of Games, Charlotte Miliziano said,
“Our collaborations with iconic artists such as Def Leppard continue to prove popular with players everywhere – and their amazing fun to work on too. Not only is this great for music and slot fans alike, but it gives us amazing inspiration on how we can push our features further. Like with the Pour Some Sugar on Me feature, it’s all about visuals, clear goals, and most of all, entertainment.”
