Another video slot with stunning visuals comes from the NextGen Gaming production. This time you are taken to the magical forest where Great Wild Elk is your ally on your way to high payouts.
The fantasy-themed game inspired by Norse mythology and played at five reels and 10 fixed paying lines offers expandable Wild with the power of triggering free
spins and highly lucrative respins which will last as long as you win.
Even if luck is not on your side, you can enjoy immaculately designed graphics and smooth animations accompanied with a soothing soundtrack fitting the mood of the game.
What We Love
We love how the graphically superior game looks, so kudos to the people behind NextGen Gaming who did a great job in terms of the overall design of the game.
The gameplay is smooth as well as the animations, especially during the bonus features which are carefully incorporated in the base game. You might be surprised when the Elk’s Light feature occurs as your low paying symbols depicted as runes transform into fairies, bald eagles, squirrels and snakes delivering high and medium value payouts. This is your chance to win some nice prizes.
Another rewarding feature is Enduring Win Free Games unlocked when Wild Elk completes your winning combination. You will win between 4 and 10 free spins during which you should look out for Scatters depicted as the magical tree which deliver a prize when only one of them show up on the reels.
The reward is the current Enduring Win value which is added to the sum won during the feature. Not only that you will benefit from Scatters during free spins, but you can also profit during the Call of The Elk feature triggered when the free spins feature is over.
You will be rewarded with respins which are active as long as Scatter shows up on your reels and this is your chance of winning massive payouts as your final Enduring Win from free games will be added to your balance whenever you hit Scatter.
What We Do Not Like
With the 500x your total bet prize awarded for four Scatters and only 250 coins for five fairies with green hair, we can say that the game delivers quite low payouts.
What’s more, the game offers only 10 ways to win, so you need to spin your reels for a long time until your symbols form a winning combination. Scatter is effective during the base game only when four of them land on the reels and it shows up only on the reels 1, 2, 4 and 5. Otherwise lucrative Wild represented as the beautiful white elk appears only on the central reel.
We think that you should not give up on Great Wild Elk as it provides you with exquisite visuals and sounds along with multiple opportunities of winning during the bonus game.
However, you should know that you need to be patient until you create winning lines and hit large sums which are achievable during the bonus features which may be highly rewarding. Don’t be misled by low wagers offered by the game ranging between $0.10 and $20 per spin as it takes time to win big, but it is worth trying.
