Before you start spinning, you are advised to adjust your bets first. “Bet” option displays the amount staked per line and can be adjusted from 0.01 to 2. “Total Bet” shows the value equal to the number of pay-lines selected, multiplied by the bet per line value. “Au­top­lay­” is used to adjust the number of times the reels spin without interruption. Once you are ready, simply hit “Spin” and start the game.

The Wild is the Elk. It appears only on the third reel and replaces every symbol, except the Scatter. The Tree is the Scatter and it can appear anywhere, except on the third reel. 

Apart from substituting any symbol in a winning combination, the Elk symbol also activates Free Games Feature. The total value of the wins is the Enduring Win. The Elk in a win triggers 4 to 10 free games, during which the Elk is held in all positions on the 3rd reel. Every Scatter which appears during the free game awards a prize equal to the current Enduring Win value.

Elk’s Light Feature is activated when all rune symbols randomly transform into elf, spirit, eagle, squirrel or snake. The feature is triggered randomly and may occur at the beginning of any spin which increases players’ winning chances. However, Elk’s Light Feature can not be triggered randomly, during the free spins.

Call of the Elk feature awards a re-spin once the free games are completed. During a re-spin, only Scatter wins and Enduring Win prizes are awarded, as well as one additional re-spin. Re-spins continue until there are no more Scatters appearing.

Gamble feature is triggered every time there is a winning combination, and players can choose whether they want to gamble their winnings or not. In case you wish to increase your win, make a guess. If you guess the colour of the card, your winning amount will be doubled. In case you guess the suit, the win amount will be quadrupled! Keep in mind, if you make a wrong guess, you will lose the win amount.

Lately “NextGen” has been producing really attractive video slots and definitely “Great Wild Elk” is no exception as this has a totally colorful design loaded with totally professional graphics.

The theme of this game is almost certainly originated in Norse mythology as, on it, they are symbols related to that culture such as runes, squirrels, auroras, a sacred tree and things like that; anyway, it is a visually inspiring game.

As for the game itself, this slot is 5 x 3 reels and has only 10 lines and you must pay double than usual for each of them, i.e. 2 credits per line for a total of 20 credits per spin. This extra value does not appear to be offset by setting high prices on the paytable, so then we must conclude that NextGen considers that special features of this slot are strong enough to justify the value that players must pay for each turn.

The two special features of this slot are quite novel and in the “i” section of the game you can find information in detail about how they work; I personally believe that the individual potential of each feature is quite modest considering that this game has a rather weak paytable, only 10 paylines, do not pay in both directions, wild symbol appears not so often because it is not a common wild and it does so only on reel 3, and additionally, you have to pay double credits per line.

As we can see, there are too many weaknesses concentrated in a single game; however, when you manage to combine the features Elk Light and Free Spins, then your winnings may rise to interesting levels since gains arising from the first feature become the basis for the settlement of awards given by the second feature, in other words, if you get a high “enduring win” during your first free spins thanks to Elk Light feature, then each tree that appears thereafter will replicate that win and your bag will fill up quickly.

In my first time with this slot, I had access to the round of free spins approximately on 6 occasions, but only in two of them I managed at some point to active both features at the same time, the first with a total gain of 322x and the other only 41x my total bet; anyway, I ended up giving back all my profits to the machine because I decided to extend my session after my best big win.

I think in “Great Wild Elk” slot, slumps are the rule and big win the exception, and ultimately, I cannot like math of this game, and especially the fact of having to pay twice credits per spin; fortunately there are other several slots within NextGen’s portfolio that I consider fairer and even generous at times.

NextGen games can be fun to play, nice to look at, and do have nice good graphics, but I seldom win on them, except on two games, namely Cash Stampede and Medusa 2. Even so, those were the one and only win on the two games so far. This Great Wild Elk is the latest offering for NextGen. My first ever play on it was through some free spins to try it out, was quite impressed with its graphics and its overall presentation, but didn't win anything then. I have since played it a few more times, on separate occasions, with real money deposits, but has yet to win from it.

This Great Wild Elk game does not play like any other games that we are used to. It has an innovative gameplay but with only 10 paylines, with a minimum starting bet of $0.20 per spin. Nope, it doesn't pay both ways as one would expect from its double cost per spin on a 10- paylines game, but paying both ways left-to-right and right-to-left would have been so much better for this new Great Wild Elk game. Why NextGen chose to fixed it at $0.20 bet per spin I have no idea. Personally, I think that a $0.10 starting bet would create much more interest amongst players to try this game out, especially to those who prefer playing with small minimum starting bets. But I guess only time will tell.

Looking at the paytable, The Great Wild Elk is the Wild symbol, appearing only on reel 3 in both the base game and in the 'Enduring Win Free Games'. It doesn't pay for itself, it doesn't double any wins with it, but it becomes a fully expanded Wild Reel on reel 3 during the Free Games feature. Any win with this Elk symbol in the base game activates the Enduring Win Free Games feature, awarding randomly from 4 up to 10 free spins, but without any win multiplier attached. Every win with the Elk symbol contributes to the 'Enduring Win' amount, and the collected current amount becomes the win value for each 'Tree' Scatter symbol appearing anywhere on the reels. This Tree Scatter symbol only appears on reels 1, 2 and 4. The active symbols in the game pay from a very low 250x to 15x the line bet for 5 of each kind.

At the end of every Enduring Win Free Games feature, one 'Call Of The Elk Respin' is awarded, whereby only the Tree Scatter symbols come into play, and each appearing Tree Scatter gets paid the total collected 'Enduring Win' value, plus triggering one more respin. This respin continues until no new Tree Scatter symbol appears, and this is the only special difference this game offers from any other games. Innovative, interesting, and looks very promising, but its merits have yet to be proven. All that I've got so far, after several game plays, was only 1 Tree Scatter in the Call Of The Elk Respin feature, and that was very disappointing indeed, to say the very least.

In the base game, there is also another special randomly activated feature, called the 'Elk's Light Feature', whereby all Runes symbols are transformed into one randomly selected high paying symbol, for more winning chances. This feature can be triggered at any time in the base game but cannot be triggered in the Enduring Win Free Games or in the Call Of The Elk Respin feature.
The paytable is unfortunately very low to contribute any sizeable big wins, the Enduring Win Free Games tend to award mostly 4 free spins only, with up to 6 free spins that I've got so far, none of the 10 free spins, the Call Of The Elk Respin feature gave only 1 Tree Scatter symbol so far, and there aren't any win multipliers to provide for bigger win possibilities. All in all, a good game but with poor payouts.
