Play´n Go Slot release: Def Leppard: Hysteria

What’s the story?

It’s the concert of a lifetime and Def Leppard are pulling out all the stops as they perform iconic hits from their bestselling album, Hysteria. 

Lose yourself in a time where dreams were as big as the hairstyles. 


It’s worth noting the innovative visual sync with the Pour Some Sugar on Me feature. The player’s goal is crystal clear, they must unlock the ‘sugar’ which is hidden behind the grid. Inspired by one of the bands most famous songs, Pour Some Sugar on Me, the Pour Some Sugar on Me feature visually syncs with how the symbols act on the grid, dropping to the bottom of the grid as if pouring sugar. 

Meet the characters

Not only is this an obvious choice for existing fans of Def Leppard, but the band is also renowned for their sci-fi aesthetics. Becoming popular across the 80s and 90s also lends to the retro feel that players enjoy. Especially in recent times the draw towards more nostalgic content has been on the rise. 

When it comes to features, the attention to detail continues. Game designers have remained true to the band’s iconic aesthetic in every detail of the game. The charge metre has a triangular design as a subtle nod to the Illuminati-inspired Hysteria album cover.

A classic feature accompanying grid slots is a cascade mechanic. When clusters hit, they are removed by this feature. Symbols cascade down into the gaps, and if new clusters are created, the process repeats.

Break It Up

At random, on non-winning spins, symbols move to new positions, and 3 to 6 wild symbols are added to the board.

Fire Me Up

On each spin, a pay symbol type is randomly selected. Wins made up of this selected symbol are used to fill a charge meter. When the meter is filled, and there are no more cascade wins, 3 to 6 wild symbols are added to the grid. The charge meter resets, but it can be refilled again after the extra wilds have been triggered. It takes 4 selected symbol wins to fill the meter.

Pour Some Sugar On Me Free Spins

When a win occurs on an indicated position, a letter is activated. Spelling SUGAR with activated letters wins you 5 free spins. During free spins, the charge meter is filled the same way as in the base game, but now when activated, it awards dropping multiplier wilds. These wilds drop down 1 step on each cascade, destroying any symbols below them. Each step increases its multiplier by +1, up to a maximum of x7. If more than one multiplier wild is part of a cluster, only the highest multiplier value is used.

Sugar Me Sweet

On a non-winning spin in free spins, 6 to 9 symbols are randomly chosen and transformed into the symbols selected in the charge meter.
