Play’n GO have unleashed the Demon in the guise of this 5-reel, 3-row and 30 fixed playline video slot. Created in partnership with English rock band Demon, this is Play’n GO’s second branded title.
To say Demon is a fully immersive experience doesn’t do this game justice. Upon firing up this demonic video slot, you’ll be transported to a rock concert located in the depths of hell itself. 7 Demon songs will have you headbanging away amidst the thousands of other fallen fans, whilst the reels conjure up some devilish winnings.
Aesthetically, Play’n GO have got the design for this game absolutely spot on. The animated background and the striking reel set design perfectly combine with the rock soundtrack to heighten the atmosphere and enhance your sense of engagement.
The game mechanics are extremely simple to understand and all of the necessary game functions are located at the bottom of the game screen.
You can easily locate paytable information, enable autoplay, choose from a range of fixed stakes and select a specific song from the soundtrack all whilst spinning away on this fiendish video slot.
There are also a number of exciting features that can summon massive wins from the fiery pit. Be on the lookout for wild mask symbols that can turn all singer symbols into wilds, and also the wild amulets, which unlock the gates to the free spins round where mystery multipliers await!
Where to Play Demon
We have already glossed over the basic structure of Demon, which features a 5×3 grid with 30 fixed pay lines, but before you stage dive into the action, you’ll want to understand the basics.
As this video slot has 30 fixed pay lines, they will all always be active. Your total stake is calculated by an amount wagered per line and this leads to a wide range of betting options, which should appeal to both conservative and high-rolling players. Check out the Bet Limits section below to find out more!
The lower valued symbols should be instantly recognisable to video slot veterans. Demon utilises a set of standard 10, J, Q, K & A symbols, with a slightly gothic font, to denote wins of a smaller nature.
Wins of a higher value are illustrated by symbols with more of an artistic touch. Statues, well-dressed skeletons, gargoyles, bloodied crosses and the lead singer of Demon himself, Dave Hill, will award greater payouts when landing between 3 and 5 of these symbols on any pay line.
Of course, the wild symbols are the most valuable and there are 2 different ones featured in Demon: the wild mask and the wild amulet. These substitute for all other symbols, except each other, and also grant access to the free spins feature when combined in various ways.
Demon boasts a competitive return-to-player (RTP) of 96.51%, but is also classified as a highly volatile video slot.
One thing to bear in mind when considering your bankroll and selected stake is that this combination lends itself to a game, which can go on long winning streaks but also go through numerous spins without a single payout.
Whilst the base game of Demon is monstrous enough in its own right, this video slot comes into its own when any of the bonuses are triggered.
Multiple features are present within Demon and the volume, along with your winnings, are turned up to 11 when they are triggered.
The key to accessing any of these are the 2 wild symbols: the wild mask and the wild amulet. Separately, they have their individual advantages but, when combined, the payout potential of this video slot is truly demonstrated, demon-strated… get it?
Demon Feature 1: Wild Mask Transform
The first of the features which Demon has in its repertoire is the wild mask transformation.
The wild mask symbol, which only appears on the third reel, will convert all of the singer (Dave Hill) symbols into wilds for that spin whenever it lands in the central position.
Demon Feature 2: One Helluva Night Free Spins
One Helluva Night and one hell of a bonus. This is where the duo of wild symbols combine their demonic powers to unlock the gates which guard the free spins round.
Whenever the wild amulet symbol lands anywhere on both reels 1 and 5 and the wild mask appears on the third reel, the One Helluva Night free spins feature will be activated.
If the wild mask lands in either the top or bottom position of the reel, you will be awarded 6 free spins. However, if you’re lucky and this symbol drops in the central position, you will be awarded the increased amount of 11.
Each Free Spins has a win multiplier randomly selected from 2x, 3x, 5x or 8x to maximise your winnings!
By no means should you think that this is all that’s on offer. This free spins feature also has the capability to improve even further if the wild symbols come back for an encore.
DemonFeature 3: Hell Spins
This is where Demon becomes Devil and the hidden power of this video slot is revealed. Hell Spins are essentially a feature within a feature and who can say no to that?
To access the true pay-out potential of this slot you just need to land both wild amulets on reels 1 and 5 during the One Helluva Night free spins round. If this occurs, you will be awarded between 4 and 8 spins and the wild multiplier which was applied during the triggering spin will remain throughout these Hell Spins.
Once again, if the wild mask symbols appear in conjunction with the wild amulets, extra benefits will be added.
If it lands in the top or bottom positions of the third reel, an increased number of Hell Spins are awarded, 6-10, and if it appears in the centre of the pentagram, the win multiplier will be doubled for all remaining Hell Spins – up to a maximum of 16x!
Hell Spins can be re-triggered multiple times, but the multiplier can only be doubled once. After all Hell Spins have been used, you will return to the One Helluva Night free spins bonus to play out any remaining spins.
The Demon video slot has a wide betting range, which is perfect for casual play and serious high-roller action.
As this game has 30 fixed paylines, your total stake per spin will be calculated by how much you wager per payline.
For those of a more conservative nature, this equates to as little as €0.30 per spin, whereas high-stakes gamblers can risk up to €90 each time they spin the reels.
The default stake values on the Demon video slot are listed in the table below.
Bet Per Line Total Stake
There are a number of different ways to calculate the maximum win in Demon, depending on which stage of the game you’re currently in.
During the base game, if you were to trigger the wild mask transformation feature, 5 wild symbols appearing on a pay line, would result in a win 500x your line stake.
When you take into consideration the random multipliers which are found within the free spins features, this could lead to some devilish payouts!
However, the absolute maximum payout you can hope to achieve when playing Demon is found when entering the Hell Spins bonus round. Here, Play’n GO have capped the maximum win at 2,500x your total stake, this potentially means €225,000 is on offer when playing at the maximum bet level.

Our Xpert Review
We’re pretty sure somebody over at Play’n GO has heavy rock music blasting out of the speakers, whenever they’re coming up with video slot ideas. We certainly can’t fault it, as if it is the case, it has been the inspiration for another rockin’ slot.
Metalheads the world over will love the concept of this game. The crisp visuals combined with the soundtrack make for an incredibly immersive experience, we even found ourselves headbanging away when taking Demon for a test drive.
One thing that we must mention, however, which may put a number of players off, is the fact that this is a volatile slot. You can play through a number of spins and not receive a single payout. Conversely, if you’re lucky, this game can potentially go on some impressive streaks and you could win some serious cash.
The features which are present in Demon make for some truly exciting gameplay and the fact that they can be re-triggered multiple times keeps you on the edge of your seat.
All in all, we believe Demon is a very well made video slot, which offers engaging gameplay and very good payout potential. Just make sure to keep an eye on your bankroll, as just like any rockstar, this video slot is capable of being extremely temperamental.
