Slot Review: Visitors by ELK StudiosPublished October 28, 2020 by Elana K
Visitors by Elk Studios is a wacky alien-themed slot that offers wilds, multipliers, respins, free spins, and a maximum win of 10,000x the stake. And you'll see your fair share of aliens.
Visitors by Elk Studios is a wacky alien-themed slot that's designed to amuse and entertain. The game is presented from a bird’s-eye view, so players are seeing the town and reels below as if they're hovering in a UFO above. The graphics are somewhat cartoonish but the simplicity belies the slot's high volatility. ELK Studios has drummed up a max win of 10,000x the stake. Players who are ready to have fun at the expense of some cow-rustling aliens can check out Visitors at ELK online casinos.
Visitors is a 5-reel, 3,125-ways-to-win slot that’s playable on all devices. Bets range from $.20 to $100 per spin and the math model is highly volatile. The hit rate is 22.6% (roughly 1 win every 4 spins) and the RTP is solid at 96.1%. The soundtrack has a space-age feel and is sprinkled with statements that have a comical effect like, “They’re here,” and “They’re as real as you and me.”
Low-paying symbols include 10-A royals and high-paying symbols include 4 buildings and a fountain. There is a flaming wild that substitutes for standard symbols and a scatter that’s instrumental in triggering the Alien Invasion Free Spins Bonus Round.
When aliens land on reels 1 and 5 simultaneously, a respin is triggered. (Watch out for the yellow-eyed alien who abducts cows!) For the respin, 2 out of 3 modifiers become active. The active modifiers are chosen based on the eye color of the aliens. Modifiers include:
- Big O Beam - A regular pay symbol is sticky and expands to 2x2 or 3x3 for the respin
- Abduction - Players get a win multiplier of up to 15x applied to the outcome
- Alien Attack - Up to 5 sticky wilds are added to the reels
When 3 scatters land on the reels, the Alien Invasion Free Spins Bonus round is triggered. The reels are cleared and 25 individual tiles display silver and gold spaceships. Players get 5 free spins. When a silver ship lands, players get 1 additional free spin. A frame is created around the position it landed on, and this position starts with a 2x multiplier of the total bet. If another silver spaceship lands in that specific position, the win multiplier is doubled. The multiplier can reach a maximum of 4,096x. If a gold spaceship lands within the framed position, all multipliers on the grid are doubled.
Visitors from ELK Studios is a creative, silly slot that doesn't take itself too seriously. At the same time that it portrays a frivolous alien invasion, it offers potential big wins via its free spins round. Even the modifiers in the free spins round can increase the overall win. Players who are looking for laughs, fun, and big-win potential will do well with ELK's Visitors slot.
