Check Out NextGen’s Newest Creation Great Wild Elk Slot
At some point in our lives we all have had dreams about mythical worlds and how exciting it would be to get a glimpse of a world where magic still exists and mythical creatures like an Elf can be seen. We have all wanted to be a part of that world even if it was just for a moment. NextGen Gaming in their newest game called Great Wild Elk gives us the opportunity to experience that.
Although they are known for their great graphics and interesting, but yet unique game designs, they still tend to surprise us and this game really looks like no other slot we have seen before. Technically speaking this game is a standard 5 reel and 10 pay line slot that offers an auto play option where bets can vary from 0.10$ to 20$ per single spin.
For better payouts and the players entertainment it offers two bonus features, one is a random feature that comes up in main game and can come up in the free spins, while the other one is a free spins bonus. The random feature can come up any time and will turn all rune symbols into one of the higher paying symbols.
It looks really great but can also be very rewarding. The second feature is a free spins bonus and all that players need to do, is get a winning with a wild elk symbol, which comes up only on reel 3. Then the player gets from 4-10 free spins with a wild symbol covering reel 3, and the win that triggered the feature is used as a starting amount for the eEnduring Win. The Enduring Win is only used when a scatter symbol appears so the player gets the enduring win payout, for every scatter that lands in the bonus round. The feature ends with a re-spin, until no new scatters appear.
What We Love
We feel like this game has given us many reasons to love it. First of all it has a great bet range, so players with small bankrolls can still experience this game, as well as those who like to chase bigger winnings. But the thing we love the most is the bonus feature.
Our favorite is the free spins bonus, as it is triggered in an unusual way where no scatter symbols are involved and we find that refreshing. Also it is great that when the free spins are finished, the player gets a free spin and if there are new scatters, another spin is granted, that way the player can collect some decent winnings and a couple of extra spins.
What We Do Not Like
Although this game is really great, we find it hard to get high winnings in the bonus features most of the time. Because the free spins feature can often give only 4 free spins and if no scatters appear or if the Enduring Win is small, the player will end up with 20 x bet winnings, because unfortunately, the free spins have no multiplier.
This game is definitely worth trying as it has not only an outstanding design but also a really exciting bonus feature. Although we find it hard to get mega wins, we think that this game could be a good fit for wagering purposes, as it has medium variance and gives frequent base game wins with regular bonus features. We liked it and we recommend it.
