The Coba slot gives you a 7×7 slithering cluster pays slot with avalanching wins, multiplying wilds, and 4 feature levels with added snakes. So many snakes.
This is a beautiful Elk Studios machine, set in an ancient Mayan temple where the snake god Quetzalcoatl will make or break your fortune. You spin tumbling reels with a mixture of Gold, Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald coins as high-paying symbols, followed by grey, blue and green stone coins as low paying.
Coba is a mid-variance slot, which is surprising as it has a huge top win of 25,000x your bet and a very playable 95% RTP. There are no bonus spins or mini-games however, you simply collect wins and trigger the multi-level snake features where spreading symbols and multipliers trigger.
For such a big grid slot, you would expect something a little more complicated – even Elks’s Mystic Orbs slot had more features. But in many ways, that’s what we like about Coba; it’s unpretentious and beautiful.
This refers to two main features. The first is that clusters of 5 or more symbols touch in any way, creating a win. The symbols explode and more come from above, falling either to the left or the right of each other as little round pennies in an arcade machine.
The second is snakes. By the side of the reels is a totem that collects any wins you get in the win. The bigger the win, the faster you fill the snake meter. There are four levels to fill.
In one avalanche you need to fill the meters enough to trigger anything from 1 to 6 slithering snakes entering the reels. These last for a minimum of one avalanche, and walk across the reels leaving behind a trail of the same symbols, giving you multiple guaranteed wins.
If they cross each other you get wilds with multipliers, if they eat their own tails, the snakes disappear. The more snakes you get, the closer you get to that huge Coba mobile slot top win.
The main issue with this Coba game is that you need a lot of wins in a row, and a lot of snakes crossing paths, to get those multiplier wild symbols – the highest we’ve seen is x4, but more is possible.
The more is the problem. It’s rare enough to get a x4 multiplier wild, never mind higher, and so the maximum win of 25,000x seems more theoretical than actual. That said, the Coba slot game is a mid-variance game, don’t forget.
As long as you appreciate the quick, fast action, and keep a more conservative top win in mind (say 1,000x your bet), you’ll appreciate unique slot features that are easy to understand.

Wilds: The Wild season substitutes for all other symbols on the reels. It can come with a 2x multipliers
Symbol Drops, Winning Clusters, and Avalanching Wins: Symbols drop vertically with gravity allowing the symbols either to the left or the right. Any cluster of 5 or more symbols touching vertically or horizontally will explode. And then more symbols will fall from above, creating an avalanche. You can then get multiple wins at a time.
Snake Progress Meter: Sitting by the side of the reels, every win you make on the reels fills the snake progress meter. You can activate 4 levels, and on any of the levels will release snakes to enter the grid.
A snake is a linear cluster of symbols. The snake will chomp along the screen, leaving behind a guaranteed cluster of 5 symbols long, possibly more if they join up with other similar symbols on the reels.
If the snake moves over the same symbol as the snake symbol, it will eat this symbol and grow in length, making an extra symbol movement. This is the survival mode. It will now remain on the grid for the next avalanche drop.
If a snake does not move over a snake symbol during its entire move in a drop, it will be removed from the grid. When a snake is first released into the grid, it will initially be in its survival state - it will therefore always survive the first avalanche drop.
If two snakes move across each other's bode, the symbol position will become a multiplier wild starting with an x2 multiplier. This can continue until x4, x8, etc...
However, if a snake crosses and bites its own body, it will die and be removed from the grid.
The Coba slot online is a little bit different from what you might expect, with no free spins or crazy bonus features. Just a whole load of snakes that create expanding symbols wins.
But with a top win of 25,000x your stake and multiplier wilds, this mid-variance addition to the Elk slots collection gives you some balanced spins with high hopes.
And that's rare. Usually, when you get a top win that high, you have to have a lot of dead spins. But on the other hand, getting big multipliers and lots of snakes take a lot of effort.
Be careful with that budget, and if you get slot wins anywhere near 1,000x your bet, maybe walk away and try something else. Set some limits, and enjoy a very different real money slot.
