Follow the light in this magical forest and you might just find the riches hidden in this Great Wild Elk slot.
With a high fantasy theme, there’s no doubt that NextGen gaming have created a very pretty slot machine that should resonate with anyone who loves a little northern mysticism.
This Great Wild Elk slot is laden with symbolism and runes, and is all the better for it, as you throw yourself into some very magical spins.
You’ve got noble woodland creatures being looked after by elves and an enchantress, set against the background of the great white tree that reaches up to the Northern lights.
Almost as pretty as their brilliant Wolfpack Pays slot.
This Great Wild Elk video slot should, in theory, be a slow moving game. After all, you only have 10 paylines and the top prize is an impressive 101,500 in cash.
And yet, thanks to the in-game features, you rarely get a dull moment.
For one, during any random spin all the lower paying rune symbols can randomly be chosen to turn into one of the high paying symbols.
Leading to a stack of symbols. And then there’s the free spins.
We’ve rarely gone 50 spins without triggering the free spins. In fact, we’d probably go a little higher and say we can barely go 30 spins without triggering the free spins.
That’s more often than in the Medusa slot, and you still get a chance at equally impressive wins.
Granted, much like the stack of symbols, all this action on the reels means that you don’t always necessarily end up walking away with a fortune.
But much like the opportunity of getting a stack of symbols can get you over 50x your bet, so too the enduring wins (see below for details) in the free spins can give you over 160x our bet. More is possible, but that’s our experience.
You never get bored of seeing that Great Wild Elk slot wild on your screen. An experience you have to see for yourself.

Wild: The Great White Elk is the wild symbol and replaces all other symbols on the reels except scatter. He only appears on reel 3.
Scatter: Nope, it doesn't trigger the free spins, but it's no less important a symbol for it (see free spins below). In the base game the 'tree' scatter pays when four show up on screen as you'll only find it on reels 1, 2, 4 and 5.
Elk's Light Feature: The Elks Light will pick one of the the high paying symbols (Elf, Spirit, Eagle, Squirrel or Snake) and turn all the rune symbols (low paying) into that one symbol for the next spin.
Free Games Feature and Enduring Wins: The wild Great Wild Elk on reel 3 creating a win will trigger the free spins.
You'll then randomly play anything from 4 to 10 free spins. The win that got you to the free spins will become the 'enduring win' at the top of the reels.
The free spins are played with a stacked wild on reel 3, much like you have in the Enchanted Meadow slot - anytime you have a win using that wild, the 'enduring wins' increases.
Why is that important in this Great Wild Elk slot machine? Because every time a scatter tree symbol shows up, you get the value of the Enduring Win as an instant cash prize.
We got a huge pot of 50x our bet in the enduring win, and then 2 scatters on the reels gave us an additional 100x our bet thanks to this bonus feature.
Free Games feature and the Call of the Elk: Didn't think you got enough out of the enduring wins in the free spins?
Once the free spins end, you get a free re-spin, all in order to get extra scatters, and instant cash prizes.
For as long as the scatters keep showing up, you'll keep getting prizes and more re-spins.
Usually you don't get more than an extra 1 or 2 re-spins, but we've managed to hit 5 at the most.
The theme might be a little fantastical for some, but we loved the mythical air of this Great Wild Elk mobile slot online.
This was no doubt helped by the fact that this is one of those rare machines that provide big slot wins, but with plenty of actions on the reels.
Boredom is quickly chased away.
That said, the more traditionalist amongst you will want a slower pace of game where you know the bonus games guarantee big wins, in which case we'd recommend the Green Lantern slot by the same provider.
