Coba Slot (ELK Studios)

Coba Slot (ELK Studios)ELK Studios is a developer that regularly releases new games, and their latest is Coba, a slot machine that draws its inspiration from the Ancient city of the Mayans.

At least now we know the theme that we can expect from the slot, and below are the full details:

Game Set-Up

Coba uses a Cluster Pays system that offers 7 rows of symbols. I noticed that the arrangement of the symbols is not as neat as in a regular system (the developer used rows with 6 or 7 symbols).

Major features and mechanics include Avalanches, Multiplier Wilds, and Collections.

Betting and Prizes

Most ELK Studios games come with a standard betting range of between $0.20 to $100 per spin.

Coba seems to have a very high potential, and on a good day, the slot can pay up to 25,000x the stake.

Lately, we are seeing a lot of ELK slots offering a reduced RTP and it is the same case with Coba as you only get work with 95%.

Coba Slot Features

A set-up of up to 7 rows (each with 6-7 symbols) is available and will assist you to form clusters of winning combos each time 5+ are connected.

Winning symbols are removed via explosion triggered by the Avalanche mechanic, and new ones come in to replace them. This way, I was able to form new clusters.

A wild symbol is also present on the reels, and as usual with it, you will have it serve as a substitute for other regular icons.

As you continue forming new clusters, and they are removed, you will notice a Snake meter that is filled with some winning icons. You will need to go through four levels to get to the meter. As you work your way up, some snakes will be released on the slot’s reels.

Level 1 offers 1 snake, level 2 offers 2 snakes, level 3 has 3 snakes, and the 4th level will offer 6 snakes.

Snakes represent clusters of symbols, and they will move around within the game area. These occupy up to 5+ symbol locations, and you can easily pick them out from their head and body design (they are surrounded by a gold frame).

You will get multiplier wilds when the snake symbols move around each other. At this stage, you can trigger a 2x boost to your wins. This process is continuous and may result in a double each time.

Theme & Design

ELK Studios has borrowed from a somewhat unique theme, but the Mayan graphics that have been used are fairly common in dozens of modern slots.

In the background, you can see some pyramids which are somehow hidden and not easy to access.

The symbols come in a round shape and are made out of stones that have drawings on them. These symbols come in the images of gold coins, and gemstones.


Coba is an interesting slot especially when you look at its features. However, as a real money gamer, I must admit that its RTP is not all that impressive for a game that comes with medium volatility.
