ELK Studios must be the king of strange slot games that work a little bit different than most. And they love their grid games.
The Illogicool is no different. This is going to be a hard game to explain, but please let me try.
The game comes with a space theme that combines two normal humans together with cartoon symbols like computers, laser guns and funny looking creatures called Troubles.
It uses 6 reels which are each 5 symbols high and another top row, which is called the Cool Row, above those reels, so in fact 6 symbols a reel.
A winning combination consists of 3 or more of the same symbols left to right. Giving this game 46.656 ways.
Winning symbols are removed from the reels and all symbols fall down, including symbols from the Cool Row. New symbols are then added to the reels and added to the Cool Row.
Trouble symbols appear on the normal reels and on the Cool Row. The ones from the Cool Row become active when they fall onto the normal reels. The ones on the reels overlay normal symbols and spread when those symbols are removed, creating a bigger and bigger block of Troubles.
When no more wins appear, all these Troubles turn into one and the same symbol. Like a mystery symbol.
If Trouble symbols are on top of Bonus symbols, these become Super Bonus symbols.
Feature Symbols are Wilds, Locked Wilds and Monster Wilds. Wild count on all reels and the Cool Row. Locked Wilds count on all reels and the Cool Row and stay on place for 3 cascades. Monster Wilds only become active when they fall onto the normal reels. When they do they will expand up and down covering all non winning symbols.
Free Drops Bonus
3, 4, 5 or 6 bonus symbols will award 10, 15, 20 and 25 free drops respectively. If these bonus symbols are Super Bonus symbols, they also add a multiplier of x5, x10, x15, x20, x25 and x30 for every 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 Super Bonus symbols on the reels.
During free drops you will see two new symbols on the Cool Row. Extra Drops will add more drops and Multipliers will add x1, x2 or x3 to the total active multiplier.
When you start playing this game it does take a couple of spins to understand what’s going on. But pretty fast it becomes clear and then you will see what an enjoyable game Illogicool is.
I like all the bonuses and extra features on this game. And it can really award some nice wins, even during the base game. But especially during those free drops.
The theme is very strange. I like the space theme and it works, but those two normal humans don’t fit at all and feel very strange. I would have preferred if they only used the cartoon style symbols.
Overall Illogicool is a very fun game and fits perfectly in the ELK Studios catalogue.
