Get ready for “One Helluva Night” or better said wild reel session on the slot from Play’n GO. The second branded game is a tribute to Demon, an iconic heavy metal band formed in 1979 in Staffordshire, UK. After a 10-year break, they revived the band in 2001 and have been living it large ever since. A high-volatility ride on five slot reels is garnered with Wild Masks, Wild Amulets, Free Spins, Hell Spins and multipliers that can lead to wins of up to 2,500 times your bet.
Demon is a branded video slot with five reels, three rows and 30 fixed pay lines. Wins are awarded for three to five matching symbols on a line from left to right only. You can headbang to some of the best Demon tracks on desktop or mobile from 0.30 to 90 credits per spin. The game is highly volatile (10/10) with a default RTP of 96.50%. In some jurisdictions it will be offered at 94.50%, always check the help files to find out which version you will be playing.
Set in a fantasy concert stage that could come straight from hell is the fitting background to an artistically ornamented game window. Record covers and the lead singer feature prominently on the reels while seven Demon songs blare from the speakers. Plus, one exclusive song, “The Devil Rides Out”, will be unlocked after completing 100 real money spins.
The pay symbols start at the low end with the card royals from 10 through to A, awarding wins of 1.67x your stake for a single five of a kind. They are followed by four record covers from the band and its lead singer, David Hill. Hit five on a line to win 3.33x to 10.00x your bet.
An artistic demon mask, appearing on reel three only, is the wild and top-paying symbol. It will substitute for all regular symbols bar the scatters. An amulet with the demon’s eye is the scatter symbol and second wild symbol, appearing on reels one and five only.
Prepare for a loud and intense gaming experience as we take you through the flurry of features Play’n GO has packed into the slot. At the centre of it all is the Wild Mask, the illustrious band icon, which will appear on reel three only.
Hitting the Wild Mask on the third reel will trigger the symbol transformation feature. All singer symbols in view will turn into wild symbols before the win evaluation. A 5OAK wilds will award 16.67x your bet.
The second feature on the Demon slot is the free spins round. Wild Amulets landing on reel one and five and at the same time the Wild Mask on reel three will trigger the feature. A number of free spins are awarded based on the position where the Wild Mask landed. You will get 11 free spins when it stops in the middle of reel three and only 6 free spins for the bottom or top position. During the free spins, every win will have a random multiplier of x2, x3, x5 or x8.
Hold on, that is just the start as the main act of the Demon show on slot reels called Hell Spins will come when you retrigger the free spins. For that, you need to hit only the two Wild Amulets on reel one and five in a free spin. The game will freeze the remaining free spins and will randomly award between four and eight Hell Spins. Should by any chance the Wild Mask land as well on the retriggering spin, then you will receive 6 to 10 Hell Spins. The win multiplier from the retriggering spin will be kept for all Hell Spins.
The Hell Spins can also be retriggered with more spins being awarded by the same random mechanic as on the first retrigger. Should you land a Wild Mask on the Hell Spins retrigger, then the win multiplier is doubled for the remaining Hell Spins.
Once you have completed all Hell Spins, the remaining free spins are played out. You can retrigger the Hell Spins again if you land the Wild Amulets on reels one and five before you run out of free spins.
Fans and connoisseurs of “Monti” Montezuma by WMS and more recently Play’n GO’s own Legacy of Egypt will instantly recognize the similarities with the Demon slot. New is the wild mask feature with the symbol transformation, plus the volatility is much, much higher. Either way, Demon promises loud and hair-raising roller coaster rides that can lead to mega wins in each free spins feature. Mind though that hitting the maximum win of 2,500x bet in a bonus round has a probability of less than 1:500 million, but the slot will be good for frequent 500 – 1,000x bet wins.
