Voodoo Gold (ELK)
ELK’s Gold series has added a member to their list, and the new title is none other than Voodoo Gold. This slot follows in the footsteps of previous titles like Tahiti Gold, and Ecuador Gold.
Voodoo Gold takes us to the deepest swamp in Louisiana, an interesting place where gold can make from nothing.
I had an opportunity to play this slot, and below is my review:
With an interesting set-up of 6x8 reels, Voodoo Gold can deliver as many as 262,144 ways to win in its best moments.
The slot has features like the Avalanche mechanic, alongside several others.
Betting and Prizes
To place a bet, I was required to select from the available betting range of the $0.20 and $100 per spin. This appears like the standard betting range for a majority of ELK slots.
At its best, Voodoo Gold is capable of delivering as much as 5,000x the stake from just one spin, or $500,000 from a single spin.
The RTP is 96.10% which is slightly above the average in the market.
Voodoo Gold Slot Features
One of Voodoo Gold’s top feature is the Avalanche mechanic. With, you will initially get 6x4 reels, with only 4096 ways to win.
However, once you advance in the game through forming winning combos, the Avalanche will come in to remove the winning symbols and create new ones.
This process will continue as far as there are winning symbols, and along the way, extra rows of symbols will be unlocked.
With the possibility of getting 8 rows of symbols on the available 6 reels, it is possible to get as many as 262,144 ways to win.
There are big symbols too, and these will come in three varying sizes, which are 2x2, 3x3 and 4x4.
The bonus symbols are beneficial in the formation of new winning combos, and for triggering the wilds as well.
Exploding Bombs will come by, and upon explosion, they will destroy some symbols, which will give way to new ones.
Scatters are here too, but you will only get them on between 3 and 6 reels. Depending on how many you land, you will be rewarded with between 6 and 15 free drops/spins.
Theme & Design
Voodoo Gold uses a theme that showcases a swamp-covered area in Louisiana. It’s an extremely powerful religion that is capable of transforming literally anything into gold.
ELK Studios has used some interesting symbols that include top hats with skulls, a Voodoo priest, dice, heart, crosses, a crow’s foot, stars, a bottle of moonshine, and goats. An adventurer called Kane is present too.
Voodoo Gold is a great addition to ELK’s Gold series. I enjoyed every gaming session on this slot, and from the unique features, top rewards, and an excellent RTP, this is a suitable slot machine to all levels of players.
