Great Wild Elk is a game inspired by mysterious woods and magical creatures that live in those woods. This game is the newest release from NextGen Gaming and it offers players a wonderful design combined with a really exciting game play.
This pokie has 5 reels and 10 pay lines so players have the opportunity to place bets between $0.10 to $20 per single spin. What is so great about this game is that everything it offers is enjoyable.
The design is really well done and the graphics are great, with the elf and spirit symbols this game really displays mystic in a great light, even the sounds are thought through. For a 10 pay line game this pokie offers a really nice feature variety.
Firstly, there is a wild symbol designed as an elk and comes up on the third reel. Not only can they help to get nice winning combinations and substitute for other symbols, but also whenever a player gets a win with an elk, the free spins round is given.
It is a really interesting way to trigger the free spins and definitely easier than collecting scatter symbols. For the free spins the player will get a random amount from 4 to 10 free spins and the wild symbol will stay covering the third reel for the entire feature.
Interesting thing here is that the win that triggered the feature will be called as an enduring win and will grow with the free spins wins. It will be paid whenever a scatter symbol comes up, just to add a little something to the free spins.
The second feature is an Elk Lighting which will come up randomly and will turn all of the rune symbols into one of the higher paying symbols. This feature is really exciting and can payout nicely.
What We Love
This game has lots of things to offer that we absolutely love. First of all the design and the graphics are something definitely worth mentioning.
The color scheme for the pokie is quite dark, yet fascinating, but easy for the eyes even after a longer session on the game. The sounds in the background are also very pleasing and players will enjoy playing with the sound on.
But the third and most important factor for us to love this game is the features it offers. For a 10 pay line game we were very positively surprised to see both a free spins bonus round and a random bonus feature.
What We Do Not Like
Although this game is great from many aspects, there is one thing we didn’t like that much, no multipliers. It is great that players can get from 4 to 10 free spins each time a free spins round is triggered, but still there are no multipliers for the free spins and players will often get the smallest amount of free spins. Many times players will get an average 20 x-50 x bet winnings and wins like 1,000 x bet could be very hard to achieve.
In our opinion, Great Wild Elk is definitely worth playing. It is an exciting game that has good wining potential and exciting, frequent bonus rounds.
If design and graphics are important to you, this game will surely impress you and the sounds will make you feel like you are an actual part of the game. With the regularly coming bonus rounds this game can definitely be a good balance booster and that is very important. Therefore, yes Great Wild Elk is worth trying with real money bets.
