Elk Hunter Overview
When I saw the new NetEnt title Elk Hunter I thought, a hunting themed game, I don’t like it. I just don’t like hunting in general. That is, hunting by humans. But it seems this game is more about other animals hunting elk than humans. There are no humans or weapons featured in this game.
The game looks amazing, where the reels are set inside a very nice looking forest with tall trees besides the elongated reels.
Elk Hunter uses 4 reels that are each 6 symbols high and comes with scatter pays instead of lines. 8 or more, or 6 or more of the highest paying symbol, the elk, count as a winning combination. No matter where on the reels.
Besides standard card symbols you will also find all sorts of animals like a bear, eagle and of course elk. And there are also wild symbols on all reels. Lastly there are Free Spins symbols, which can also appear on all reels.
Elk Hunter comes with a maximum payout of 2.035 times your bet. And it’s is a medium to high volatile slot game.
Elk Hunter Features
Wild symbols can appear on all reels and will have a x2, x3, x5 or x10 multiplier. Wilds count for all other symbols and multiplier are added together when more than one appear at the same time. A maximum of 5 wilds can be on screen at the same time.
Free Spins Features
3 scatter symbols will award 7 free spins.
During free spins all wild symbols appearing will become sticky wilds and will stay on the reels until the end of the bonus.
2 or 3 scatters during free spins will add 2 and 5 extra free spins respectively.
For 60 times bet you are able to buy the free spins feature at some online casinos.
Let me start by saying that I really love the look of this game. I think it’s a beautful looking game. And I like the animal theme.
The fact that the game uses scatter pays is also a nice touch. But the gameplay is a bit simple for my taste.
Sure you have those multiplier wilds, but since the maximum payout isn’t that high, even those won’t award huge wins, most of the time.
The only thing that makes the game a little more interesting is the free spins, where they become sticky.
But overall it’s a bit of a bland game, gameplay wise. But as always, judge for yourself. Play the game at any NetEnt casino, or play for free below.
