Elk Studios Casino Slots and Games
Elk Studios still feel like one of the new kids on the block but they’ve actually been around since 2013. How did that happen?
Ah well, we are glad they are here anyway. Elk Studios have an im-pressive portfolio behind them and have won a number of pres-tigious awards for their games.
They have a strong focus on game mechanics but unlike Merkur or Novomatic for example the graphics and animations are also given high priority. The games tend to be fun too, just take a look at Spinions to see how well they execute on that.

Spinions – Yes they do look a bit familiar don’t they?
These playful little yellow fellas are full of fun. This game hides some real depth and engaging gameplay behind its light-hearted facade.
The Spinions are also more volatile than you’d expect. What you’re looking for here is respins and they are triggered by land-ing 2 or more Spinions on the reels at once. That triggers a respin which continues as long as Spinions keep turning up. Each Spin-ion is Wild and you can get some really nice results on this slot.
Electric Sam – It’s very rare for a new studio to get into their game groove within a couple of releases but Elk did it with their second game launch ever Electric Sam.
A 243-way slot (they were in vogue at the time) featuring a col-ourful Troll who runs a casino in the forest – yep, who knows how they got that idea? The game is still a strong one for 243-way lov-ers like me. Graphically it still stands up versus the best releases of today.
Wild Toro – It wasn’t too long after Electric Sam that Wild Toro burst onto our screens. An innovative blend of mechanics from established slots with a twist are accompanied by superb graphics and sounds. This is still one of my favourites.
The slot has three bonus features Toro Walking Wild, Toro Goes Wild, and the Matador Respin. They’re all fun but you want to land a Matador during the Walking Wild feature and gain entry to the Toro Goes Wild reels – brilliant fun.
Ivanhoe – A classic looking slot which has far more depth and engaging gameplay than is first evident.
You just have to play this one to appreciate it so I’m not going to go on about the features here. Go and play it on Scatters – you can try free play to get your head around it. A brilliant game, we’re sure you’ll enjoy it.
Cygnus – Innovation is in short supply when it comes to slots and it’s somewhat understandable because players tend to be set in their ways and afraid of new mechanics. It’s your hard-earned money at stake of course so a little caution is natural.
This game showcases true innovation and it is wonderful. It’s an-other one you need to play to appreciate as it’s just so different.
Essentially you have a cluster pay slot which is driven by a rolling ball mechanic. Oh just go and try it out – you will be very glad you did.
Bloopers – A fun game which has a more volatile payout than you probably would have thought. The bonus game has many features which cater for a long lifetime. Meet Soundtech in the base game or get really lucky and see the Stuntman give you wilds upon wilds in the bonus game.
In Hollywood there are two kinds of people: those in front and those behind the camera! This game puts some extra focus on the ones behind, it’s about setting the final scene in this Hollywood production. To do so the player needs to get into the bonus game and collect the stars.
Features include a Free Spin bonus game with Blooper features and sticky diva WILDS, random Sountech feature with sticky WILDS and Respins.
DJ Wild: And for one night, you are the DJ! Imagine thousands of people filling up the stadium. You are in top shape and it’s time to enter the stage. 50,000 fans are screaming for more music. Your gameplay creates the music mix of the night. DJ Wild’s soundtrack “Fantasize” was written by one of the hottest DJs in Stockholm – the home of DJ’s like Swedish House Mafia and Avicii.
Dj wild is a classic 5 reel, 3 row video slot featuring Respins, Sticky Wilds, Expanding Wilds and a Jackpot Wild Symbol. The game has 20 paylines, 10 lines paying left-right and vice versa.
The Lab: This 5-reel slot provides a thrill worth coming back to. When you get the formula right you will enter the Multiplying Free Spins mode, where the real big win can happen. This beautiful game is filled with back light effects, crispy molecules and sound effects, everything based on a solid math’s model. Crystal Molecules reward high wins – on a single line winning the green crystal can return 1,000 times your bet and 2,000 when you are in Free Spins mode. If the Lab-symbol hits position 2 on reel 2 you enter the Free Spins mode where all winnings are doubled and the Lab symbol turns into a WILD. In normal mode you can hit X Scatters and double or even quadruple your winnings. Features include: Free Spins, Wilds, Multiplying Scatter, Re-Spin on Free Spin.
