Space explorations is a dangerous game. Sometimes you get Yoda, sometimes you get the alien Queen, and sometimes you get this Cluster Slide slot with little monsters in between.
Elk Studios invites you to Jellyton in the Cluster Slide mobile slot: a wild moon with three huge planets on the horizon, set over huge glaziers and mountainous rocks. Within this barren land, you’ll find cute little square-shaped monsters that reminded us a little bit of the aliens in the Energoonz slot.
What lands are differently coloured squares over 7 reels and 8 rows of symbols – some smooth, some with textures and furs. They only wake up when you get a cluster of 5 or more of them touching horizontally and vertically.
Then their little eyes will pop open, explode, and they will all slide to the left, with more symbols coming in from the side. Very much like the cascading reels in Nero’s Fortune review, only with a quirky side slide. Hence the name: Cluster slide slot.
Randomly a 4×4 cluster will create a mega monster and eat one of the aliens by the side, creating another empty space to fill. Hey, it’s a tough monster eat monster world out there. And yes, it’s a little odd the first time it happens, but not as odd as how you actually get the big wins.
Because as you spin you might wonder if you are going to get any wins at all in this Cluster Slide slot game. You get those wins with the wild drop feature. This is when you get enough wins in a row to fill the wild generator at the top of the reels.
The bigger the wins, the bigger the cluster, the faster you’ll fill the generator. At this point any one of 5 wild feature can randomly drop onto the screen – adding wilds that add to the total multiplier, removing one set of symbols, upgrading one set of symbols, adding more wilds or creating a huge 2×2 wild.
These are all here to help you move the turbine at the top – 5 wild features in a row will give you an instant 5x multiplier on all the wins.
On this cold little planet, you can go for a long time frozen in place, with nothing happening, to a chain reaction of wins and wild features that will make you forget about the long trek.
And then there’s the Cluster Slide free spins bonus which gives you only 3 spins for 3 scatters. Not much you say, sure, but on the first spin you get 3 wilds, on the second spin you get two 2×2 wilds and on the third spin you get a mega wild that’s 3×3 in size.
Each time that generator builds, you get multiplier wilds increasing the multiplier on all your wins, and you get closer to increasing the overall multiplier to get that 10,000x your bet max win.
It’s not easy. Volatile slot games generally aren’t, but if you are going to become king of the cannibal monsters, and all the wins that come with it, you’ll have to be as brave as when playing the Viking Runecraft slot or even the Rainbow Riches Cluster slot game.

Wild: The wild symbol can replace any other symbol on the screen except for the bonus symbols.
Cluster Pays and Cascading Reels: 5 or more identical symbols touching horizontally or vertically will create a winning combo. The winning combination will then explode and more symbols will slide from the right of the screen to fill the reels.
Generator and Feature Wilds: Any winning symbols contribute to filling the generator. Each time the meter fills up, the generator will award one of 5 feature wild symbols:
The wild symbol in the generator change per trigger and per spin, so you never know what you'll get.
Multipliers: Generating 5 Wild Features in the same game round awards an x5 multiplier. Each activated Multiplier Wild symbol increases the total multiplier by 1.
Bonus Game: 3 Bonus symbols will trigger three wild drops.
You can fill the generator and get wild features and multipliers as with the base game.
With a 10,000x your bet max win, it's hard to give this Cluster Slide slot review less than 4 stars. After all, how many games can promise you a million in cash if you max bet at 100 a spin? Not many, including most Megaways with bigger top wins but lower max bets.
We know this grid slot is problematic. It's hard to follow exactly what is going on, and even harder to figure out when some monster will comp on each other or how to get those multipliers.
But if you simply use one of the automated Advanced slot strategies and auto-play, you might find that this Elk slot game will satisfy you almost as much as landing on a monstrous planet full of rich cannibalistic aliens.
Exciting, dangerous, a little bit perplexing, but full of hidden treasure.
Go try it for yourself in real play or demo mode at one of our top Elk Studios casinos.

The theoretical RTP is 96% which is about what you need to look for when playing online slots.
Yes, you'll be able to play for free at any good online and mobile casinos with the game. You might have to login or sign up to play in demo mode, but then you can quickly switch to play in real money mode when you want to.
The most you can win is up to 10,000x your total bet, which at min bet of 0.20 is 2000 and at max bet of 100 is 1,000,000 in cash.
