Time to be a hound dog as this Elvis Lives slot takes most of the fun out of the biggest rock n roll songs of the last century.
First of all, we should point out that this Elvis Lives mobile slot should be played in landscape mode if you can. This has 12 rows of symbols and played any other ways cramps the already tiny symbols down so much you barely care to see the wins.
No doubt, as an online slot machine, this may stand out in colour and music, but here it feels small and the symbols generic – no better than you’ll find in our Microgaming 5 Reel drive slot review. You don’t even get one of the good songs to keep you company during the base game.
Here’s our main problem with this Elvis Lives slot game. The base game is excruciatingly boring. With a minimum bet of 0.50 a spin, it isn’t cheap either.
Yes, most of the symbols come stacked 2 or 3 high, most effectively the 3 Elvis posters which pay the most. But with 60 paylines and so many symbols competing for space, getting more than 5x your bet is a lucky draw.
Every once in a while, things get more interesting when the three middle reels join up and give you mega symbols. Then you start to pay attention.
There is four of them in total. The click me cape bonus is the worst, so it’s the one you’ll see the most often.
But the two Elvis Lives free spins are really good fun if you can catch them. Once gives you wandering wilds on screen that move around randomly on the reels, and maybe even double your win.
The other gives you 3 extra wild symbols and the opportunity to get as much as a 5x multiplier. Which sounds exciting until you realise this makes the paytable only just about match something like the NextGen Wolfpack Pays slot.
And if you get the elusive jackpot bonus game, you could get as much as 2,000 times your bet in-game jackpot. So the wins are here.
But you’d had to be the ghost of Elvis to find them.

Stacked Symbols: The three highest paying symbol is Elvis himself, who comes stacked 2 or 3 symbols high. All other symbols can also come stacked.
Wild: The wild symbols will replace all the other symbols except the scatter.
Mega Symbols and the Elvis Reel: On any base game spin, reels 2, 3 and 4 may combine to form one oversized Elvis reel. These contain large symbols that are four symbols high and 3 symbols wide. You can also get bonus symbols on this Elvis Reel.
How to trigger the Bonus Games: You have four scatter bonus trigger symbols which only shows up in the Elvis Reels.
Elvis doesn't so much live as is well remembered in this Elvis Lives slot machine, where you don't feel this was really made by a fan.
The design feels like someone googled Elvis and put a few symbols of what everyone knows about him, and then added the mega symbols to make fun of his latter days.
If the bonus features came around a little more often, or the stacked symbols worked to get you some decent base game spins, we may have given this an extra star.
As it stands, this is an ok addition to our list of Williams slots with lots of features, the chance at some big wins via the multiplier free spins... and not much more.
Elvis Lives is a 5 reel by 12 rows 60 payline video slot with wilds, mega symbols, stacked symbols a 4 bonus features including 2 free spin rounds.
