Mystic Orbs Slot (ELK)

Mystic Orbs Slot (ELK)The fantasy genre is one of the most loved niches in this industry, and it is quite easy for gamers to come across a lot that draws its inspiration from here.

Mystic Orbs is the latest slot from ELK Studios, and it is one of the slots that borrows inspiration from this genre.

ELK is known for its quality workmanship, and this is one of the reasons I had to check inside this slot, and see what it has in store.

This is my unbiased review of Mystic Orbs:

Game Set-Up

One of the most notable things about this slot is the presence of the Cluster Pay system.

The developer has set it on 5 reels, with several features present. These features include Xiter, Free Spins, Wild Orbs, Charged Orbs, multipliers, Feature Row, and Cascading reels among others.

Betting and Prizes

To place a real money wager, I had the opportunity to use the same betting range that is common with slots from this developer. This means that I could place bets of between $0.20, and $100 per spin.

With the X-iter feature, you will be allowed to pay between 5x and 500x the stake, which in return allows you direct access to some of the best features of the game (you have 5 game modes that you can choose from).

Mystic Orbs can pay extremely well, and on a good day, you can hit wins of up to 10,000x the stake, from one spin. This translates to about $1,000,000.

The RTP of 95% may not sound very good, but given that the volatility is medium-high, I think it serves it well.

Mystic Orbs Slot Features

The action takes place on the slot’s 5x5 reels, and here, you will also be relying on the Cluster Pays system to form combos/clusters. At the top is an extra row that spins horizontally to activate some features.

In one cluster, you can have between 5 and 18+ matching symbols which can be grouped either horizontally and/or vertically.

The Wild Orb is one of the most obvious features inside here, and as usual, it will serve as a substitute for the regular icons. However, if it doesn’t contribute to a cluster, this wild feature will explode and remove all nearby symbols. This helps others to come in and replace them.

Avalanches get triggered each time you form clusters, the winning symbols are removed and replaced with new ones. This leads to more wins.

A Charged Orb is another of the available features, and it also serves as the wild.  To activate it, I needed help from the Wild.

Other features include:

Upgrade: this one works by picking a type of symbol and then upgrading it the time. The symbols may be transformed into a better symbol, or even into a wild, for up to three avalanches.

Orb Siege: a symbol from those that are close to the Orb can be expanded into other areas near it.

Multiplier: it will boost the present multiplier of the round.

Orb Payout: this one may bring along some extra cash prize.

Extra Life: with this feature, you get an extra symbol drop, and this happens even if you have not formed any new wins.

Bonus: a good feature to trigger the bonus game.

Theme & Design

Mystic Orbs is obviously inspired by Chinese customs and tastes. The present symbols are a mix of common things that are revered in this country.

They include the dragon, bird, title, plus several images of Yin Yang, and Buddha among others.


Mystic Orbs has a lot that you can enjoy. It’s a slot with lots of features, great payout potential, plus lots of action to keep you entertained.

However, as an experienced real money gamer, I’m not very pleased by the low RTP that may hurt your chances of hitting good wins. Mystic Orbs is a slot suitable for casual players.
