NextGen Gaming knows the slot market extremely well, and their releases continue to impress. Great Wild Elk is their latest effort and one of the newest slot games available on the market. We can honestly say it is one of the best-looking slots that we have ever seen and players will be blown away by the quality of the graphics. This is definitely one of these games that you will want to play on a widescreen HD monitor. We have had a go, and there are some great bonus features to enjoy so check out all the details below in our Great Wild Elk review.
There is a mystical and atmospheric feel to Great Wild Elk that we have not experienced on any other slot game. It is thoroughly enjoyable to play, and the bonus features are fantastic. You will become completely immersed with this installment and we just love the theme with the forest brooding menacingly in the background. Reel symbols are cool, and the music contributes to the atmosphere of the game well so you will definitely want to play with the sound on. We had a great time playing it, and you can spin from just 10p so it will suit players on a budget as well.
The base game includes a number of symbols including fairies, an eagle, a snake, a squirrel and four different runes – green, blue, purple and red. The wild symbol is the elk as you might expect and it substitutes for all other symbols on the reel except the scatter (which is the tree symbol) and helps players pick up additional winning combinations. This forms a large part of your game so definitely keep an eye out for it. The scatter activates the bonus features which we have also detailed below.
Enduring Win Free Spins:
This is triggered whenever the wild elk character contributes towards a winning combination and you will receive a random amount of free spins which tends to be between 4 and 10. The win amount for that combination becomes the initial prize, and this is displayed above the reels. During the spins, the wild elk will freeze in place on all positions on the 3rd reel and each subsequent win that features the elk will increase the enduring win amount. When all spins have finished, you will receive a Call of the Elk re-spin which is pretty nice.
This is a common feature within modern slot games and NextGen likes to include it in their installments. Basically, you can gamble your latest win for a chance at doubling or even quadrupling your winning funds. A playing card will be presented and if you can correctly guess the colour and (or) suit of the card displayed then your winnings will be multiplied. This is a high risk, high reward function and we don't recommend using it too often as it can easily deplete your balance. Try it once or twice and if you are having no luck, take a break for a few spins.
