DJ Wild has an Electronic dance music theme. The pokies game aims to immerse the player in the world of strobe lights and fog machines. It will take player to the clubs of Ibiza or Playa Del Carmen and shower them in confetti and hopefully a win or two.
ELK was founded in 2012, it is not surprising then, they are a relatively small company. Their main focus is on releasing games for the mobile platform. Their games a unique, not it any one way, they just seem to rethink all the conventions of a pokies game, every time they sit down to make one. They have some beautiful games, with impressive jackpots.
DJ Wild is unlike any pokies game out there. It has an intro video, which would not look out of place in a Hollywood movie. There is no panel on the interface. The spin button is an opaque white circle on top of the reels.
There are another two buttons, which have all the betting options and game options on the other side of the screen, and they are also, over the top of the reels. The reels cover all of the interface, except for a thin bar displaying the players balance and bet. The soundtrack Fantasize, is exclusive to the game and was created by a DJ from Stockholm. The symbols used in the game are mixture of DJ equipment, instruments and gem/fruit symbols.
How to play
DJ Wild has 10 paylines but they pay both ways, so there are 20 ways to win. A winning payline can start at the furthermost right or left reel. Bet are selected using the white faded button in the bottom left of the interface.
DJ Wild has pre-programmed betting strategies, which change the size of a players bet. How the different strategies affect the players bet, is determined by the outcome of previous spins and there are four strategies. Holding down the spin button will bring up an automatic spin menu, and the options menu is at the top right of the screen.
The DJ Wild symbol acts as a sticky wild. There are five DJ Wild symbols all based around common club effects, like strobe lights and confetti. The Fire, Smoke and Confetti Wild symbols expand vertically.
And the Strobe Light and Laser Light Wilds expand horizontally. Landing a Wild also wins the player a free spin. If a wining line is triggered during the free spin, an additional free spin is awarded, and another wild is added, which makes it even easier to win.
The jackpot is won using the DJ Wild symbols. There are no wilds on the third reel, but if a player manages to get a wild on reels 1,2,4 and 5 a Jackpot symbol appears on the 3rd and there is a chance it will land.
This wins an astronomical 50,000 coins. The next best thing is five in a row of the Keyboard symbol, getting this win is worth 1000x the players bet.
DJ Wild is a lovely game. From the moment the intro video starts playing, the player will know they are in for something special. It is just quality. The inbuilt betting strategies are great unique feature. The graphics are phenomenal, and the game even has an exclusive sound track.
Even after taking the time to build an exceptional game, ELK has still included a lucrative sticky wild feature and a sizable jackpot. The player will find that the sticky wild feature is almost a guaranteed big win and they happen quite often.
