How to play
Great Wild Elk looks quite standard from first sight, when it comes to reels and pay lines, with the 5 reels it offers and 10 pay lines. This game is a great option for players who like to bet small, as the minimum bets are set to $0.10 per spin. The bet lines are fixed and can’t be changed, but for those who like to bet higher there are options to increase bets up to $20 per spin, just by increasing the coin sizes. This game also offers an auto play option.
When it comes to bonus features, Great Wild Elk is a wonderful example of a mixture of simplicity and great quality. This game offers two bonus rounds and the best part is that they come up quite often. That is what we as players enjoy the most, easy triggered bonuses from which one is a free spins bonus round.
There is an Elk’s Light feature, which is a random feature and can come up anytime, before any spin on base game and in the free spins as well. This feature will come up and will turn all of the rune symbols into one symbol from the 5 higher paying ones, snake, elf, eagle, spirit or squirrel. Not only does it look very beautiful, but it also has the potential to award very nice winnings. The main star, of course, is the free spins bonus round.
It is triggered in a very unusual way. The Great Wild Elk is a wild symbol in this game and it comes up only on reel 3. Whenever it is in a winning combination, it will give you from 4-10 free spins. Although the free spins have no multiplier, the wild elk will be sticky on reel 3 and will stay there for the entire free spins round, but that’s not all. The win that triggered the free spins will be used as an Enduring win and will grow with the winnings the free spins. At the end of the free games, the player will get extra spins until no more scatters appear.
So far Great Wild Elk seems to be a game with medium variance and therefore winnings of 1,000 x bet can be achieved, but it might be very hard. That being said, the bonus rounds in general comes very often and can give regular 50 x – 100 x bet winnings, which helps to increase the balance.
Great Wild Elk is an exciting game with great colors, design and just overall pleasant appearance. It has very affordable bets for all kinds of players, as it has a standard layout of 5 reels and 10 pay lines, with bets from $0.10 up to $20 per spin.
It has 2 bonus features which are quite easily triggered and therefore come up often. Players have the opportunity to trigger a random bonus feature that can come up at any time and will turn all rune symbols into one of the higher paying symbols, and the second feature is a free spins bonus, triggered by a win with the wild symbol.
Although the payouts seem to be average and we think that 1,000 x bet wins could be hard to achieve, in our minds this game is worth trying and it could be a good balance booster, due to the regular bonus rounds landing.
