A mixture between trolls and neon fruits, the theme is as unusual as the gameplay, but Electric Sam mobile slot buzzed our buttons.
Yes we rated this game highly, and lovers of 243 ways to win slots might salivate at getting something higher in variance a la Game of Thrones slots.
But Electric Sam video slot is not that. It is 243 ways to wins, but that’s about the only things that these games have in common.
This Elk Studios slot machine is high octane, free spin filled, electrical, low variance, fun. With betting strategies in-built to add a certain spice, beginners to slots and lovers of easy to play mobile casino games will enjoy a light, but highly amusing time.
It’s like they wanted a to make a fruit machine, and starting putting in your traditional bells and sevens and cherries… but then they got bored.
They started turning the symbols neon, because why not! Look how bright and marvellous they look!
But now they need a reason for all the neon. So they come up with an electric King troll… because… who care! It’s fun! And let’s add some pretty troll girls, all equally obsessed with the power of electricity.
And why not hey?
Which easily trigger, and when you are within the game, easily re-trigger. So you may start with 5, 10 or 15 free spins, but you’ll probably end up with 10, 15 or 20 of them in the end.
That said, winning 50x your bet is at the top end of the scale, though you can potentially get as much as 2,000x your bet in this slot. Which is unusual for a machine that’s more about entertainment than the big jackpot wins.
And the Electric Sam slot is all about keeping you hooked to your screen. It’s about getting sticky wilds electrifying the screens, or multipliers from the cocktail sipping troll, or even watching the symbols explode in a buzz of neon flash by the cascading troll. Visually stunning, and pure value for money.
You’ll stay stuck to your Android or iOS screen, as you figure which of the three betting strategies is the best to use (we answer that in the bonus features below by the way.)
It’s electrifying in the best possible way.

Wild Symbols: The Electric Sam slot logo is the wild symbol and replaces all other symbols except the free spins scatter.
Scatters & Free Spins: The bell is the scatter symbol. Get them anywhere on screen to trigger free spins.
And whenever you get any bells on your screen during the free spins, you'll get another free spins.
Between us, unless you start with 10 free spins it's hard to get decent winnings, even with the ease of re-triggering this feature.
But if you do get a good streak of free spins, you've got three great features to keep you company.
Betting Strategies: Like all Elk Studios slots, you can choose to pick one of three betting strategies when playing this Electric Sam slot machine.
These are better used in conjunction with the auto-play (hold the spin button to get that option).
We should point out that using these do not guarantee you'll win, luck is luck after all. But you might lose more slowly, giving you a chance to win big.
Jumper betting strategy (avoid): This slot bet strategy raises the bet level by 1 after every winning round. Once it reaches four levels above the base bet, it stops and then re-sets once you win.
Not a great strategy for this slot game, as the wins come far too often, but rarely enough to cover your bet. So you are increasing and increasing, and then winning less than you're playing.
The leveller (ok - mostly): This is for when you're scared and don't have a lot of cash.
It basically raises your your bet by 2 after 5 consecutive losses. The reason this works is because when you do win, you tend to win larger amounts, equalling out your losses.
But because it's on every 5 losses, and you win so often in this game, it rarely actually raises, so you might as well play on one bet level for what it's worth.
The booster (for when you're feeling braver): This raises the level by one after every loss, until 4 levels above the base bet. Once you win, it goes back down to the lowest level.
This is the best slot strategy for this game, we found. For one, the increase is faster, meaning that when you do win, you'll win on a higher bet, giving you back more cash.
For two, when you trigger the free spins it tends to be on a higher bet level, giving you bigger wins.
But, it can get expensive if you don't win much in a while.
Fans of 243 ways to win slots looking for some harder hits, such as in Thunderstruck II slot, will be disappointed with this light, funny game.
Though there are some great wins to get here, mostly you'll get lots of little cashbacks keeping you topped up. A good streak will get you a decent 50% on top from your starting budget, at which point you are better off leaving and playing on something with harder hits.
But you should have great fun playing on Electric Sam mobile slot whilst you do.
