Swedish based company ELK was only founded in 2012, and they are currently concentrating on establishing themselves as specialists in developing mobile casino games. Their ethos is to release a small amount of quality games, rather than the mass production of poor quality games, and so far their unique portfolio of games is limited to three thoroughly enjoyable slots that continue to grow in popularity amongst the global slot-playing community. They use advanced mathematical models and the latest technology to create their games but, arguably, it is the human touch that they've incorporated into their games that give them mass appeal.
Elk's current 3 games are The Lab, Electric Sam, and Champion's Goals, and all 3 incorporate great graphics, a plethora of exciting bonus games and features, and audio-visual support that's right at the cutting-edge of the market. There's also a 4th game currently in production called "The Fish" - so watch this space.
The Lab - Players can win big prizes for lining-up a mixture of fun minerals and elements, whilst there's also plenty of bonus games and features to enjoy including Wilds, Scatters, Free Spins, Re-Spins and Multipliers. There are 5-reels and 15 pay-lines, whilst Elk have also incorporated a unique innovation called Betting Strategies which allows players to implement their preferred betting patterns if they so wish.
Electric Sam - This protagonist of this great game is Electric Sam, owner of a casino based deep in the dangerous Troll Forest, which he runs with the help of his wife and daughter. It's a 5-reel game offering 243 different ways to win, whilst there's Sticky Wilds, Imploding Symbols, Free Spins and a mass of Multipliers to get you excited.
Champion's Goal - This football themed slot is ideal for soccer and slot lovers, and features Wilds, Free Spins, Scatters, a unique and very exciting bonus game involving Stacked Wilds and Cascading Symbols. It has 5 reels and a variety of pay-out options.
As already mentioned, Elk Mill have introduced a unique feature called Betting Strategies. This allows the software to create players a predefined betting strategy that can automatically change bet-levels depending on a set of predetermined rules. You can, however, turn this off if you prefer to play without it.
Another unique Elk feature is the “Game On” feature, which is activated when a player has placed 25 bets and gives a player the opportunity to win free spins. It’s a type of loyalty program but, not only does it create customer satisfaction, it adds an extra level of excitement.
Games are available at a variety of online casino, but all casinos allowed to use Elk Software must undertake random fairness and performance testing by RNG.
ELK’s ethos of producing a small amount of quality games, rather than too many poor quality games, has quickly been appreciated by slot players, and their investment in technology and a desired to employ talented game developers should see them continue to expand their portfolio slowly. Their efforts to make inroads into the mobile market should also secure their future as this area of the slot-industry continues to expand at a rate of knots.
