Def Leppard Hysteria Slot (Play n Go)

Def Leppard Hysteria Slot (Play n Go)Def Leppard Hysteria is a new Play n Go branded slot that is one of many rock music-themed games. In this case, we're dealing with Def Leppard's Hysteria, which is among the most popular albums of all time (over 25 million albums sold).

With a darker appearance and a big game area, this will be a type of high-volatility version that can generate fantastic results.

Here is more about Def Leppard Hysteria:

Game Set-Up

Inside the slot, I found a rather big game area of 5x7 reels, that works with a Cluster Pays system.

For the features, Play n Go has not disappointed as the slot offers several of them. On the list of features are things like wilds, free spins that have multipliers, cascading reels, and shuffling symbols.

Betting and Prizes

If you are interested in real money betting, this is a good game to try since it offers a betting range of between $0.20 and $100 per spin.

Like many previous Play n GO slot machines, Def Leppard Hysteria offers an excellent top payout. On a good day, you can hit wins of up to 10,000x the stake, or $1,000,000 cash (when using max bet).

The obvious disadvantage with slots that offer such kind of reward is the high volatility, and from my experience with Def Leppard Hysteria, I can say that it’s not any different. Fortunately, its decent RTP of 96.27% helps out.

Def Leppard Hysteria Slot Features

Def Leppard Hysteria will pay only when a cluster of 5+ matching symbols is visible, with positions having to make contact vertically and/or horizontally, this is possible all thanks to the Cluster Pays system that the developer has provided.

Clusters of 15 or more symbols yield the best payouts (up to 1,000x the stake can be paid for such a cluster). As you form clusters, some help will come from the wilds that serve as replacement symbols.

I love the way the Cascading Reels trigger, and with them, Clusters are removed and replaced with others. This process continues until there are no more new clusters formed.

Break It Up is one of the random features in Def Leppard Hysteria. It can only appear as a result of a losing spin, and it will push symbols around while also adding up to 6 wilds. This way, you get a chance to form a cluster.

I noticed that several symbol positions come with the letters that form the word SUGAR in the background. If these symbols are included in clusters, you get to activate that word. If all the letters are uncovered, then you get a chance to trigger up to 5 free spins.

Theme & Design

This time around, Play n Go has given us a branded slot machine, and the inspiration here is from a famous rock band that was popular in the 20th century.

On the list of symbols are basic card suits, but there are a couple of better-paying ones like images of a leopard, a rocket, a guitar, as well as the album’s cover. The developer has also included two versions of wilds.


Def Leppard Hysteria offers many unique features, and I love the big prizes inside. There are some great retro graphics as well, not to forget the excellent rock theme that Play n GO has used.

I had a very good time playing this slot for real money, and I can recommend it to all levels of players.
